1. Why Do the Nats and Marlins Give the Mets So Much Trouble?

    The Marlins and Nationals have a knack for giving the Mets fits. Over the last three seasons, no two teams have caused the Mets more pain than this bottom dwelling duo. They're not great teams...

  2. For David Wright It's June 31st

    I lost faith in David Wright. During the offseason after last year's dismal performance I was down on the guy. I thought the Wright we saw in 2006 would never return, but this June my faith has been restored...

  3. Hisanori Takahashi Belongs in the Bullpen

    Takahashi has come down with the Johan Santana disease. This is where a decent pitching outing is destroyed by one horrible inning. Both Santana and Takahashi have been plagued with this problem in 2010: One inning ruins the whole game...

  4. All Good Things Must Come to an End

    Ah, it had to eventually end. The RA Dickey run of untouchable came to a screeching halt last night. Dickey gave up 5 runs in 5 innings, and it appeared the Marlins just weren't bothered by his knuckleball...

  5. The Mets Got Talent

    Do the names Oliver Perez, Mike Jacobs, Luis Castillo and Gary Matthews Jr. mean anything to you? Me neither, but these were guys on the opening day roster for the 2010 Mets and are now exiled to oblivion...

  6. Focus on Mets Series Win, Not Clutchness

    I know the blogosphere will be a buzz today about the Mets lack of clutch in late innings. Everyone will want to focus on David Wright's inability to get the big hit against a left-handed pitcher in the 7th inning with one out and the bases loaded...

  7. Chewbacca Fever

    R.A. Dickey, who I still think looks like the human Chewbacca, is playing some unbelievable baseball right now. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop when Dickey takes the mound thinking, "well this has got to be the outing where he gets hammered...

  8. The Big Picture

    Sure the Mets lost 2 of 3 to the Yankees. Sure they ended their magical 8 game win streak. Sure the Mets offense was absent for most of the weekend. But you have to look at the big picture...

  9. I Love Interleague Play

    If the Mets can play the Indians and Orioles every year, I will be a big proponent of interleague play. It's when the Mets get stuck playing the Rays, the Angels and the Twins that it's not so fun...

  10. Beating Bad Teams is TCB

    TCB? Taking Care of Business. That's what the Mets have to start doing and they did just that this weekend in Baltimore...

  11. Everybody Loves Batlimore

    The Mets have been awful on the road this year, but this particular road trip couldn't have come at a better time. The Mets are coming off a 5-1 home stand and are on a nice run...

  12. No Doubter from Davis for the W

    In the bottom of the 11th inning, there was no doubt the Mets were going to win this battle. Ike Davis demolished a fastball well into the second deck of the right field stands to cap off yet another heroic home victory...

  13. Mets Fan Mistakenly Steals Ball from Kid

    This is a story I can relate to. Evidently during Sunday's Mets game, David Wright tossed a ball into the stands intending for it to be caught by a 10 year old Mets fan when suddenly ...

  14. Mets Should Seek Vengeance

    The Mets were embarrassed by the Padres in San Diego last week. And here they come into Citi Field after doing the Mets a favor and beating the Phillies in their matchbox stadium...

  15. The Boostrap Mets

    Sunday's game should have been a loss. In fact last year I would have guaranteed a loss when the Mets found themselves down 5-0 after Takahashi gave up his second homer of the game to Cody Ross...

  16. Link: Mets Plain Niese-ty

    Head on over to Metszilla to check out a recap of Saturday's victory over the Marlins. This is the first I've seen someone use "Niese-ty" but it's kind of kitchy. The Mets have 21 wins at home which is a major league leading best...

  17. Tigers' Galarraga Gets Corvette and a Ton of Respect

    I'll be honest. I would have thrown a temper tantrum had I been Armando Galarraga last night when Jim Joyce made a fatal call blowing Galarraga's magical night. As a baseball pitcher, a perfect game is the pinnacle of individual achievement...

  18. Are the Mets the Unluckiest Team in Baseball?

    I offer as proof: Sign the best closer in baseball who just set the record for most saves in a season only to have him lose velocity, control and effectiveness in the next two seasons...

  19. Oliver Perez Doesn't Make Business Sense

    Fans may rant and rave about Oliver Perez (myself included), Mets players may anonymously bad mouth him to the media and talk radio can rail him for hours, but when it comes right down to it how the Mets handle Oliver Perez is strictly business...

  21. All Good Things Must Come to an End But Don't Have to for Long

    So the Mets streak of opposition goose eggs is over, along with their home run-less streak. So the Mets 5 game win streak has come to an end as well. It was bound to happen as much as we would have like to see another 9 game stretch of nothing but W's...

  25. Only the Mets

    Only the Mets can get an inside the park home run, a triple play and a run in the top of the 9th and still lose the game. Only the Mets can go from last place to first place to utter unimportance in the span of 10 days...
