SCORE: San Diego 2, Mets 1, at Citi Field. RECORD: 2-1. GEE: Hard luck loser. SUMMARY: What, you expected this to last forever? When you pitch you always have a chance to win. When you don’t hit, that chance is negated. The Mets wasted a solid outing from Dillon Gee in suffering their first loss of the season today by the Padres. This coming after the Mets outscored the Padres, 19-6 in their first two games. “Dillon pitched well, we just weren’t able to pick him up,’’ said Ike Davis. ON THE MOUND: Gee deserved more than a loss as he gave up a run on three hits and three walks, with four strikeouts in 6.1 innings. “That’s baseball,’’ he said, giving the stock answer for every pitcher’s hard luck loss. Gee, who is coming back from surgery that repaired an artery in his pitching shoulder, said he was not bothered by the cold. … Scott Rice gave up two hits in two-thirds of an inning, but did get out of a jam in the seventh when the Padres could have broken the game open. … Jeurys Familia t

Buck and Byrd get it done for Mets, bullpen doesn’t, offense explodes

Given their age – and a cynic might note, the fact that they both wound up on the Mets – things did not figure to improve all that much in 2013. After all, it’s hard to play baseball with a giant fork sticking out of your back. But a funny thing happened as both players turned in very impressive Grapefruit League...

Mets’ Collins Keeps Pat Hand; Roster Notes

True to his word, manager Terry Collins is keeping a pat hand. Of course, why would you change anything after scoring 11 runs? COWGILL: Back on top of order. However, too often in recent seasons the Mets lineup seemed to change daily, with no regard of who was hot or slumping. Granted, there are times when a slump or bad pitching match-up will force a change, but I like Collins...

Mets Card of the Week: 1984 Dave Johnson

1984 TOPPS TIFFANY DAVE JOHNSON I slept with this card under my pillow the other night, hoping thoughts of a successful season would seep into my brain osmotically.

Johnson showed up in 1984 with a respectable...

Who Knew? Mets 2-0 Yankees 0-2 scary ain’t it ?

I am realist enough to know that the Mets are not going to win 162 games and the Yankees are not going to lose 162 games.

Could you imagine if George Steinbrenner was still alive now and this happened …a press relaease would...
