Found April 27, 2013 on Metstradamus:
Baxter. Tejada. Murphy, Wright. Duda. Buck. Davis. Valdespin. Gee. Marinated in Lefty/Righty goodness, this was probably the first lineup that I can remember that received close to universal praise on Twitter. If you're around Met fans a lot these days, you know that we don't universally praise anything. This lineup though was universally praised and anticipated before the game. Gigli was also highly anticipated. Sadly, I don't think tonight's Met lineup would have fared any better if Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were the corner outfielders. And they couldn't have been much worse in the field either. Remember when the Phillies wore the all maroon uniforms in 1979 for one game and then burned them? Yeah, this lineup should be burned. All lineup cards should be burned. I want no proof that this lineup ever existed. Three lousy hits off Kyle Kendrick? Since when did he become Hyun-Jin Ryu? This lineup might have been crafted with good intentions, but never aga...

The early-season struggles of Dillon Gee

The Mets’ starting rotation has been frustrating this season. Starters Jonathon Niese and Matt Harvey have turned out consistent — and at times superb — starts this season, however the rest of the rotation has been mediocre at best. Granted, it’s early yet, but no one has been more of a disappointment this season than Dillon Gee, whose starts have been solid at times,...

Sluggish Mets Need Boost From Their Pitching

Dillon Gee didn’t pitch that badly last night, but the Mets’ struggling offense – five straight games of scoring three or fewer runs – brought nightmarish memories of last year’s second-half offensive drought. The Mets made Kyle Kendrick look untouchable as they lost for the seventh time in their last ten games. MARCUM: Makes first start today. With their offense stagnant...

The Waiting Game: It’s not yet time for Wheeler or Montero

It looks like Jonathon Niese is expected to make his start on Sunday against the Phillies and the need for the Mets to promote a pitcher isn’t so pressing.  Add in that Jeremy Hefner pitched a relative gem on Thursday and the Mets look like a team that can wait for the All Star break to make their promotions.  Yet, every time there is an injury or a stumble by Dillon Gee or...

Game Preview: Phillies vs Mets

The Mets look to bounce back from dropping a series against the Dodgers by taking one from Phillies tonight at Citi Field. Yesterday was a frustrating day as the Mets offense just could not build any rallies off of Hefner’s strong start and ended up losing 3-2 after winning the previous game with a walk off grand slam. Tonight Dillon Gee will take the mound for the Mets as he squares...

Mets Blanked By Phillies 4-0, Fall Under .500 For First Time This Season

The New York Mets were shutout by the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 tonight at Citi Field. Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick hurled a complete game gem, limiting the revamped Mets lineup to just three hits and a walk. For the Mets, Dillon Gee was matching zeroes with Kendrick for five innings and actually did a nice job of keeping the Phillies off the board until the dreaded sixth inning...

Kyle Kendrick, Dillon Gee Square Off In Series Opener In Queens

So the Phillies really lost 3 out of 4 to the Pirates....ouch. Honestly blame it on the bullpen because Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee and Roy Halladay ALL threw great games, but the bullpen either blew the lead or blew the game. Yesterday afternoon Cliff Lee tossed seven innings of three-run...
