Found April 21, 2012 on Mets Blob:
PLAYERS: Mike Pelfrey
TEAMS: New York Mets
Mets 5 - Giants 4 The Mets turned a great start by Mike Pelfrey in to an epic **** storm of defensive ineptitude that more resembled a greased monkey trying to **** a porcupine than professional baseball. Rest in peace Max Patkin, the Mets are taking over as the new bread of baseball ass clowns. Nevertheless, the Mets pulled out a walk off win. The Blob felt the ups and downs of the

No Hitters Over The Years By (Binghamton) Mets Pitchers

There has been a lot of talk this season about the ‘no-hitter’ and lack of one by a pitcher in a New York Mets uniform.  Ex-Mets minor leaguer Phil Humber tossing a perfect game on Saturday will only help fuel the conversation that the Mets history books are devoid of a no-no.  However, while the New York Mets have never experienced the thrill of having one of their own throw...

Mets Still Have Plenty To Be Positive About

Despite two bad losses to close out their series in Atlanta, the Mets return to Citi Field today with plenty to be positive about.A full two weeks into the season now, we find the Mets sitting two games above .500.  The teams 7-5 record may have them towards the middle of the pack in the NL East, however remember that while you can't win the division in April, you can certainly...

Mets Leave Many On Base in 4-3 Loss To Giants In Extras

Recap Jon Niese has himself another good start. He only went six innings and allowed seven hits, but kept the Giants to only three runs. He walks two and strikes out five. Niese continues to prove himself to his contract with another start that was not helped by much hitting.He walks away with a no decision. His inability to go deep into games is still discerning, however. Ramirez...

Review: R.A. Dickey's Wherever I Wind Up

Every few chapters while reading R.A. Dickey’s 300+ page piece of therapy, Wherever I Wind Up, I would turn to my wife and express my pity for him.I call it his “therapy” only half in jest.  Throughout the read, you feel him releasing his secrets, his demons, his fears, his doubts.The author pulls no punches.  He comes out of the box and describes (his only now public) sexual...

“Good source” believes Wright extension will eventually get done; I sure hope so

During Wednesday afternoons 14-6 loss to the Atlanta Braves, David Wright collected two hits — a single and a double — in five at-bats while driving in three runs.  With the two hits,  Wright has now reached base at least twice for the ninth straight game (by hit or walk), while the three runs batted in tied him with Darryl Strawberry for the Mets’ all-time RBI record: David...

Mets Game Postponed

Rain has forced the postponement of the Mets 1:10 pm game today versus the San Francisco Giants.  Instead, the two teams will play a doubleheader tomorrow starting at 4:10pm.Miguel Batista will start game one for the Mets, with Dillon Gee going in the game to follow.  The decision to start Batista means that Johan Santana will be bumped back a day and will face the Miami Marlins...

Mets need Niese to be on his game

The Mets start a home stand against Angel Pagan and the Giants tonight. Not a homecoming like Reyes will get on Tuesday but I bet the Citi faithful will grind out some type of reception for the no Arm Center fielder.  Have to tell you saying Citi faithful just doesn't have the same ring as the Shea faithful but cant live in the past all the time!   Mr Niese gets the start...

Mets 2012 Milestones To Look Forward To

We all know that David Wright is on the verge of breaking Strawberry’s Mets RBI Career record. Here is a list of the milestones that could be reached during this season: Mets Career Records: Wright Mets RBI Champion (733, 1 more to break) Wright Sacrifice Flies Champion (58, 4 to tie) Wright WAR Champion (37.7, 5.1 to tie) (Wright already has offensive WAR) Wright #2 in AB’s...

Mets beat Giants on Posey error

Ruben Tejada scored the winning run on a throwing error by catcher Buster Posey and the New York Mets beat the San Francisco Giants 5-4 Saturday after blowing a three-run lead moments earlier in one of the wackiest ninth innings imaginable. Mike Pelfrey tossed eight terrific innings, and it appeared the Mets were headed to a fairly simple victory. They were leading 4-2 with two...

Dumb and Humber

The only thing worse than the Mets blowing a sure win when a fielder overran what should have been a game-ending pop would be if it occurred the same day yet another ex-Met threw a no-hitter.Fortunately, the Mets were able to rebound from Kirk Nieuwenhuis' ninth-inning misadventure and beat the Giants, with help from the Giants and manager Bruce Bochy. Bochy decided that the...

Why, My Gonads Are Sore ... Did Somebody Kick Them Again?

We've become used to these over the past four years, haven't we? Those types of losses that make you beat your head against the wall, whether it be sheet rock or concrete. It's gotten to the point where now, it barely hurts. We've been through these in September and October. The ones in April barely register.But they register. Especially the ones against the teams...

Game Recap: Mets 5 Giants 4

The New York Mets even the series at one a piece with a 5-4 victory today against the San Francisco Giants. The Mets blew a 4-1 lead in the top of the 9th inning, but won in the bottom half of the 9th.


We probably should have saw all this coming when in the third inning on Saturday, Angel Pagan held at first base on a line drive to shortstop with two outs. Let me make this absolutely clear: Ramon Ramirez could be a complete bust, and Andres Torres could have his legs amputated next week. I'm glad the Mets made this trade. Note to Angel Pagan: Major League Baseball stadiums...
