This is pretty brutal. This is more like a non-hitter’s duel. — Mark Ethe (@TooGooden16) May 10, 2013 Locke looks like a 15 year old girl. Like…really — Heather Nicole (@Lud_Bug5) May 10, 2013 Not knowing whether or not the Fernando Tatis twitter account is real is giving me really bad anxiety. — Stephanie Maria (@stephaniemaria) May 10, 2013 It has taken 85 pitches, but Dillon Gee has thrown five shutout innings. The Mets would love one more good inning out of him tonight. — Jared Diamond (@jareddiamond) May 10, 2013 Wally on Zack: “Personally I think if he has a couple of more starts like his last start he’ll be headed to the big leagues & rightfully so” — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) May 10, 2013 Not sure if he was kidding — haven’t seen video — but Wally Backman said he ejected the first-base umpire last night in Las Vegas game. — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) May 10, 2013 6th Inning!!!

Sometimes you just have to tip your cap. — JD (@Section518) May 10, 2013 The only thing this game has taught me is that every single pirate joke is terrible. All of them. — Mitch Rapp (@MitchNYM) May 10, 2013 Scott Rice was summoned to work out of jam in 7th and did so. He’s been tremendous. — Rising Apple (@RisingAppleBlog) May 10, 2013 #BlamePatCawley #VoteMarkakis — Katie (@cardny5) May 10, 2013 Hey Ike! Welcome to 2013. Grab a beer. — Metstradamus (@Metstradamus) May 10, 2013 As bad as Ike looked on that first swing is how good he looked on the second: Ike Davis rips an RBI double into the gap, and the Mets lead. — Jared Diamond (@jareddiamond) May 10, 2013 Yep. I’d def still have sex with Ike Davis — Heather Nicole (@Lud_Bug5) May 10, 2013 Jeez Mets fans go from releasing Ike to “he’s back” in one AB — (@metspolice) May 10, 2013 Pedro Alvarez. Tie game. Hawkins. — Mets WFAN (@MetsWFAN) May 10, 2013 The F Word — Jim Flaherty (@TheFranchise41) May 10, 2013 I’m increasingly thinking that the best way to build a good bullpen is to focus on your offense. — Dan Lewis (@DanDotLewis) May 10, 2013 Once again, there will be no save for Bobby Parnell. The dude has three saves. Mets can’t ever get him a lead! — Jared Diamond (@jareddiamond) May 10, 2013 @jareddiamond The fact that Parnell has as many wins as he does saves is a testament to the lack of offense this team has. — Ed Leyro (@Studi_Metsimus) May 10, 2013 so theres no money for an OF but theres money to pay three guys to do a post game and to have Kevin check in once or twice. — (@metspolice) May 10, 2013 If Parnell finishes this inning and the #Mets win it in the bottom of the 9th, he will tie Matt Harvey for the team lead in wins with four. — Ed Leyro (@Studi_Metsimus) May 10, 2013 Starling Marte is a pretty great name for a pirate — Daria White (@Jetmet702) May 10, 2013 @ttlsportsblog Harvey’s secretary is named Kennedy, Parnell’s secretary is named Lincoln. — Metstradamus (@Metstradamus) May 10, 2013 Tejada with a big time play on that back hand save and a snazzy throw to 2nd to get the lead run.

Mike Baxter is having one heck of a week

New York Mets outfielder Mike Baxter is having one heck of a week. For the second time in the last three days, Baxter propelled the New York Mets to a victory with a walk-off RBI single.  The New York native drilled an 0-1 fastball up the middle, plating Marlon Byrd, as the Mets defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 on Thursday night. It was Baxter’s second walk-off hit of the season...

Baxter Does It Again, Mets Top Pirates In 3-2 Walkoff Win

The legend of Mike Baxter continues to grow as he came through in the clutch for the Mets yet again on Thursday night, with his second walk-off hit in three games! This was a low scoring affair for the Mets due to Dillon Gee dancing out of trouble in each of his first five innings on the mound tonight, without allowing a run through them. He started the sixth for the Mets and allowed...

MMO Exclusive: Mike Baxter Explains Mets Hitting Approach, Calls Valdespin “Dynamic”

From his key double in his first at-bat in blue and orange, to his crucial catch in Johan Santana‘s no-hitter, to last night’s tenth inning walk-off knock against the White Sox, Mike Baxter has already found his place in Mets history and into the hearts of the Flushing Faithful. For Baxter however, he is always looking to improve and perform to the best of his ability. Baxter...

David Wright’s super start, Bobby Parnell’s good week, Mike Baxter’s heroics

While Ike Davis grabs all of the attention for duplicating his rough start from a season ago, almost no attention is being given to David Wright once again getting off to a terrific start. Unlike last year at this time, the Mets are under .500 and all of the buzz centers around Matt Harvey and John Buck. However, Wright deserves praise for getting out of the gate quick. Through...

White Sox vs Mets Preview: Spin Is In, Duda Cleaning Up, Hefner Looks To Complete Sweep

Starting Lineups Game Notes The Mets held the White Sox to one hit over 10 innings last night. It was the second 10-inning one-hitter in team history. Terry Leach hurled a 10-inning one hitter on October 1, 1982 at Philadelphia in a game the Mets won, 1-0. Luis Aguayo had a fifth-inning triple in that game. The last 10-inning one-hitter in the majors was May 28, 2011 when the...

Collins Wasn’t Kidding; Turner Logs First Career Game In The Outfield

Terry Collins says a lot of things that will raise eyebrows whenever we go to these pre and post game press conferences. Many times he’ll say one thing on Monday and then do the exact opposite on Wednesday. Just to cite two recent examples remember when he proclaimed Collin Cowgill the everyday center fielder on Opening Day? Cowgill then proceeds to start in just 6 of the next...

The Mets: Elite Baserunners

Last night, the Mets won 3-2 over the Pirates on three runs deserving the “manufactured” classification. Every run required a baserunner to take an extra base. John Buck scored on a sacrifice fly in the third inning after he went first-to-third on a single. Andrew Brown scored from first on a double in the seventh inning, and Marlon Byrd scored the game-winner on a relatively...
