After sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals, the Mets find themselves in a first place tie atop the NL East.
With the complete and utter domination of the St. Louis Cardinals, the New York Mets have rolled into a first place tie with the Miami Marlins and Washington Nationals. I bet you never thought you’d hear something like that, especially this late in the season.
The Mets didn’t just win, they shut St. Louis down, the best hitting team in MLB. First was Johan Santana’s no hitter, then R.A. Dickey backed it up with a shutout, followed by six shutout innings from Jon Niese. If it wasn’t for a run by the bullpen in the third game, the Cardinals would have been shutout for three in a row.
So glad Manager Terry Collins let Santana stay in even though he wanted to pull him over and over due to a high pitch count. Everyone keeps worrying about his shoulder. He had surgery, it’s fixed. People need to stop babying pitchers. It’s a concern but his arm isn’t going to fall off.

Johan Santana cemented himself into Mets history by throwing the franchise's first no hitter after 134 pitches and possibly an assist from a 3rd base umpire.
But after the final player was struck out in the 9th, the players start the celebratory "run to the pitcher and jump up and down" to dance.
Well in the midst of that just starting, a Mets fan was seen running...

Oh, quit your whining, St. Louis Post-Dispatch. If Santana’s no-no was against any other team, the part about the missed call probably wouldn’t have been mentioned on the cover.

Alright, so I don’t have any real historical evidence that proves Mets fans traditional ruin great moments but when Johan Santana completed the first no-hitter in the 50 year history of the New York Mets the celebration was somewhat overshadowed by a jean shorts wearing fan that ran onto the field.
For those of you that think I’ve lost my mind, watch the video of the final at...
Friday night, while the Maglio Ordonezless Tigers were trying hard to lose, Michael Kay revealed to the YES Yankiverse news of something better in another world. He basically said, “Johan Santana has a no-hitter going after eight innings.”For tens of thousands of Yankee fans, it was like on “Fringe,” where the hot lady scientist suddenly realizes the existence of a new...
As most of you know, for most of the offseason, I’ve taken an optimistic approach toward the Mets for this new season. In our 2012 MMO Predictions, I picked the Mets to win the second Wild Card in the National League. For comeback player of the year, my choice was Johan Santana. I’m on record as saying that by the end of this season, the Mets will have increased their attendance...

A day after Johan Santana made Mets history, R.A. Dickey baffled the St. Louis Cardinals in his own way.
The knuckleballer followed up Santana's no-hitter by shutting out St. Louis, David Wright homered and the New York Mets beat the Cardinals 5-0 on Saturday.
''It's no easy chore to follow Johan,'' Dickey said, ''I went to bed reminding myself to...
Can everyone just let the whole foul ball thing go already? Santana pitched incredibly, baseball is a game with a human element. and umpires make mistakes. Let it go already.
It was an awesome game to watch, and Mets fans that watched this game will never forget it.
Where were you when the world stopped turning? A pitcher from the New York Mets actually pitched a no-hitter. That’s right. We can all stop holding our breath. (I was. Weren’t you?)
After 8,019 games, the second longest active drought in baseball came to an end yesterday. The longest drought in baseball obviously still belongs to my favorite punching bag, the Chicago Cubs. How’s...
First off, hat tip to the 7Line.com for the title of this article, it was just too fitting not to use. Usually I watch the Mets play upstairs, in the bedroom. I don’t mind it to be honest; it allots me some relaxation from my day. Even though my wife isn’t much of a baseball fan, she does tolerate my screaming at the television for reasons she has the slightest clue about...
