WHY, WHY, WHY? Once again, the Mets jump out to an early lead and are unable to hold it. Once again, Johan Santana struggled, giving up six runs over five innings. And once again, I sit at my kitchen table scratching my head, wondering exactly what the problem is.In the top of the first, the Mets did something they have done all year: score with two outs. After a David Wright single, a Scott Hairston double, and a Daniel Murphy base knock, New York was out to a quick two-zip lead over the Nationals. Murphy's single was followed by a Ronny Cedeno walk and a coaching visit to the mound.I like to think the conversation went like this:Randy St. Claire (pitching coach): Hey, you know who's comin' up next?Ross Detwiler: Yeah, Jason Bay, right?Randy St. Claire: Yup. Now, you know what to do right?Ross Detwiler: Fastballs?Randy St. Claire: You got it.And with that, Detwiler fed Bay two fastballs. The first one was a ball, and the second one was a fly ball out. Shocking, I know.S...

I’m not sure where rock bottom is for New York Mets starter Johan Santana, but after becoming the first pitcher in team history to allow six or more runs in five consecutive starts, I’m sure this is close. Last night Johan was rocked by the Nationals and after the game his pitching coach Dan Warthen, when posed with the question of shutting down the former ace for the remainder...
Michael Morse connects for a grand slam against the Mets’ Johan Santana.
Mets just can’t keep any sort of winning streak going. Santana gets hit with two homeruns as Kelly Shoppach hits one of his own as Mets lose 6-4 to first place Nats.
Johan Santana is still plundering. Santana did go perfect through the first three innings with nine up and nine down. However, the fourth inning...
The Mets start a 3 game set against the Nationals tonight. Johan Santana who didn’t make it out of the 2nd inning last weekend gets the start. Johan who just back from his stint on the DL will have to prove that he can still get it done. Love the guy and I am hoping he isnt injured and is able to get back a little of his mo jo because he really look defeated after last weeks shalacking which
This milestone had never been accomplished by a New York Mets pitcher before, but it did not come with stunned gratitude by a fan base desperately waiting to see it finally occur. Instead, Johan Santana's season offered some cruel symmetry Friday night, when the first Met to throw a no-hitter back on June 1 earned a much more ignominious place in team history. He allowed...

Michael Morse hit a grand slam, Bryce Harper also homered and the Washington Nationals became the latest team to tag a struggling Johan Santana in their 6-4 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night.
Ross Detwiler tossed six solid innings and the Nationals sent Santana to his fifth loss in the last five starts.
Handed a 2-0 lead, the two-time Cy Young Award winner was perfect...
The Mets won a game yesterday! Today they try to make it two games in a row as they open up a series in DC with Johan Santana taking Ross Detwiler. Johan will be making his second start since returning from the DL, and it can really only go up from here. On the season he is 6-8 with a 4.58 ERA and in his last start allowing 8 ER over 1.1 innings. In one start against the Nationals...
If one of the last resorts of 2012 for the New York Mets is to play spoiler for the top half of the NL East, it would be nice to see the Washington Nationals go down in flames down the stretch. The Mets have three games to be obnoxious at the home stadium of the National League’s best.
Coming off a night where it was all about young star-in-the-making Matt Harvey, it will be...
Coming home from one of their most stunning road trips of the season, the Washington Nationals (73-45) return to D.C. this weekend to face the New York Mets (56-62). The Nats only lost two of 10 games on their preceding road trip, which gave them not only the best away record in the majors (41-23), it put their road record ahead of all other teams' home records. During this series...
The Mets may have spared their blushes a little bit by winning their final game in Cincinnati, but now they have to head to the nation’s capital to play one of baseball’s hottest teams in the Washington Nationals.
What was a great start to the season for New Yorkhas quickly turned into another forgettable campaign. The Mets currently sit at 56-62 on the season...
