Sometimes, you just need to tip your cap… Our Mets lost 2-0 across the Northern border to the Jays on Saturday afternoon. Summary The last recap I penned had to do with Zack Greinke, and this game brought upon another great pitching talent in Brandon Morrow. Sometimes, there is absolutely nothing you can do. You can not win if you can not score. Simple as that. Brandon Morrow dominated the Mets with 8 K in a 3-hit shutout, who had nothing go Wright – including the present of Wright, who was on the bench today. Baxter, Duda, and Cedeno put together the only hits against Morrow – and a PH-BB by Hairston rounded out the entire offense. At least Duda’s hit was a two-bagger. On the flip side, the injury bug bit the Mets once again…seriously, is it not getting tired of tasting Met blood? Batista left after 2 scoreless with a bad back, allowing only a hit and walk over those two frames. Jeremy Hefner took over after and pitched the following 5 innings (talk about Yeoman’s work out of the p...

Morrow filthy as I go home empty handed

   When Brandon Morrow was coming up through the Seattle Mariners minor league system, he was touted as a power arm who had the ability to become the ace of a pitching staff. He started out as a relief pitcher for the Mariners, but never seemed to get it together. Seattle impatiently traded him to the Toronto Blue Jays, in return getting their current closer, Brandon League. A...

Toronto Blue Jay’s Brandon Morrow Gets Complete Game

I must admit, after the Jays swept the New York Yankees in their last series, I wasn’t expecting too much this weekend when they faced the New York Mets. Well, they surprised me again by winning the first two games and came very close to another sweep on Sunday.  Not to mention that outstanding pitching performance by Brandon Morrow on Saturday afternoon. Friday night’s game...

Morrow pitched his second shutout in four starts, blanking the Mets on three hits and leading the Toronto Blue Jays over New York 2-0 on Saturday. ''Morrow was sharp tonight,'' New York's Mike Baxter said. ''He made a lot of good...

Morrow, Blue Jays shut down Mets

TORONTO -- As good as Brandon Morrow was on Saturday in pitching a three-hit shutout as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Mets 2-0, he still needed a couple of defensive gems from right-fielder Jose Bautista. Bautista made a fine catch going out toward the wall in right field on a sixth-inning line drive by Andres Torres. And then in the ninth threw out Mike Baxter trying...

Post Game: Blue Jays 2 Mets 0

Batista pitched 2 scoreless innings before leaving the game Miguel Batusta started the game but left after two quick innings. Jeremy Hefner camewin and pitched decently, but he did allow two runs. The real issue with today’s game was the Mets could not get anything going against Jays starter Brandon Morrow. Morrow was excellent today, but the Mets lineup was hurting with David...

Time For Replay (As in: Can the Mets Replay These Games?)

I'm often misunderstood. Which is why when I complain about a ********* call by Brian Knight and call for more instant replay, you might think I'm only doing that because my favorite team was affected, and because I think the Mets 2-0 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday would have been totally different had Knight made the correct call. On the contrary, my dear readers. Brandon...

Pre Game: New York Mets (21-19) @ Toronto Blue Jays (23-18)

Yesterday afternoon the Mets were shutout by the Blue Jays 2-0.  Brandon Morrow threw a complete game 3 hitter.  The closest the Mets came to scoring was in the 9th inning when with 1 out and a man on 1st, Mike from Whitestone lined one down the right field line and was thrown out at 2nd by Jose Bautista.  The replay showed that Baxter was safe.  Today, Dillon Gee (sans goatee...
