Found April 28, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
Boy, I’ll tell ya… Karma? It’s a ******** The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Mets 5-1 this afternoon at Citi Field to complete the sweep and send the Mets reeling to their fourth loss in a row. Jon Niese was the hard luck loser despite a solid performance from the Mets’ southpaw. He gave the the team more than they could have hoped for, but was let down by defensive miscues, a terrible decision by Terry Collins, and a forgettable outing by reliever Scott Atchison. Niese was cruising through 6.2 innings and locked in a 1-1 pitching duel with Phillies starter Cole Hamels. After getting two quick outs in the seventh, Laynce Nix hit a foul popup that should have been the third out. But catcher John Buck dropped it for an error and Nix responded a single to ignite a rally. After another single, Collins decides to bring the right-hander Atchison in.

Has Mets’ Freefall Begun Early This Year?

Rocky might be sugar coating what is going on with the Mets these days.

Not happening. We are looking at a fifth straight losing season, and please, don’t delude...

New York Mets latest team turning to Groupon to spark ticket sales

Prior to the start of the 2013, the Marlins organization received a buncha laughs when they put season opener tickets on sale via Groupon, an online deal-of-the-day website.

With Terry Collins Already On The Hotseat, Is Wally Backman On Speed Dial?

After getting off to a 7-4 start to the season, the Mets have now lost nine of their last 12 games and aside from when Matt Harvey and Jon Niese are on the hill, you don’t get the sense that the Mets will win that day. Part of the problem was a middle to back end of the rotation that was ill-conceived from the beginning. The ever so reliable R.A. Dickey was replaced with Shaun...
