The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets 6 Rockies 5

The Mets won a wild and woolly one yesterday against the Rockies six to five in eleven innings….Ike Davis got the game winnning RBI in the top of the eleventh and Ramon Ramirez collected his first save of the season.

Johan Santana pitched another no decision gem yesterday and left after six innings with a four run lead….it should’ve been enough for him to have collected his first win since 2010. Sadly it wasn’t. The usually dependable Tim Byrdak served up a biscuit and Todd Helten crushed it for a grand slam…..

Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Ruben Tejada each had three hits for the Mets….these two are really getting it done so far this year!

Josh Thole went yard for his first home run of 2012….

David Wright collected two more RBI’s……please sign him to a long term deal?????

It was a good series for the Mets….anytime you can win a series against the Rockies in Denver is a good thing and on Wednesday night my pal Rocky fan Reuben Mills will join me to flesh out this series….you won’t want to miss this show!

On to Houston….

The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets 7 Rockies 5

Yesterday was Mets starting pitcher Dillon Gee’s birthday and he celebrated it in fine style by picking up his second win of the season against the Rockies….Gee struck out seven and only walked two Rockies hitters.

Late last night I decided to put Lucas Duda in the lineup on my fantasy baseball team and he responded with a tater and four RBI’s on the night….I wish the rest of my team would have done the same 🙂

Three more hits for Ruben Tejada…..he’s really getting it done so far this season.

Mike Baxter had another pinch hit….it’s a tough job but he seems to do this quite well.

David Wright and Daniel Murphy each added three hits of their own….our two through five hitters are doing fine….if Ike Davis ever gets going we’ll have our own version of murderer’s row 🙂

Johan Santana takes the hill tonight and hopefully I’ll be able to watch at least some of it!

The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets 6 Braves 1

One of the best ways to get over a beating is to deliver one of your own….at least in sports that is. The Mets got back on track last night with a win over the Atlanta Braves by a score of 6-1.

Dillon Gee picked up the first win of his 2012 campaign and Ike Davis hit a three run shot to seal the deal. Jason Bay also added a dinger of his own as well as making a home run saving catch.

The bullpen came in and pitched two innings of shutout ball to preserve the win for Gee.

David Wright added another hit last night and has now hit safely in each of his seven games this season. He’s on some kind of tear. I hope he’s able to keep this up.

Ruben Tejada also added a hit and an RBI of his own and the more I see of this kid the more I like. He’s going to be some kind of special player.

I still can’t believe the Braves intentionally walked David Wright to face Ike Davis and boy did Ike make Manager Fredi Gonzalez regret that decision.

Gee pitched terrific last night giving up one run on four hits while striking out five Braves hitters. He also gave up one walk on the night. From what I’ve been able to read Gee had good command of his pitches all night long. That’s good to see and I hope for him that he continues to demonstrate that last year was no fluke.

The Mets need a catcher because Thole and Nikeas aren’t the answer. Neither of them can hit and neither of them play very good defense.

All in all I’m one very happy Mets fan…the Metropolitans are off to a flying start and I’m liking what I’m seeing so far!

I’ll leave you with a video of the grab Jason Bay made last night….

 

 

The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets 2 Phillies 8

I know that I’ve said I won’t watch Mike Pelfrey pitch but last night I made an exception. Living in Greece affords me very little opportunity to watch the Mets live so I decided to watch anyway. At least I watched the first seven innings and I’m glad I shut down the pc and wasn’t forced to watch the onslaught or listen to the Phillies announcers any longer.

The Mets lost to the Phillies by a score of 8-2.

I guess we’ll have to put the broom back in the closet and wait until next time to use it 🙂

It wasn’t very pretty to watch but Pelfrey pitched quite well. After a shaky first inning he settled down and did what the Mets and we fans have asked him to do; which is keep us in ballgames and that is what he did.

Ramon Ramirez’ wild pitch and two too many walks from Manny Acosta is what did the Mets in last night my friends. I’m certainly not pissed off at the bullpen…they’ve been great so far this year and I certainly can’t expect them to pitch scoreless ball each and every time they step on the hill.

Ike Davis seems to have come out of his coma and collected two hits on the day…including a first inning two run jack that was really nice to see and left the Phillies announcers that I was forced to endure speechless. The fact that these hits came at the expense of the southpaw Cole Hammels should give Davis some added confidence.

David Wright continued his hot hitting adding two more hits to his 2012 tally…it’s two bad he got picked off base twice by Hammels, who BTW has an extremely good move to first.

Lucas Duda also collected two hits on the day….good for him!

Daniel Murphy is still alive….always a good thing 🙂

Jason Bay is out with a jammed right ring finger….or so the Mets say. Let’s see; Wright plays and hits well with a broken pinkie and Bay sits with a jammed right ring finger. Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise 🙂

Speaking of disguises Mark Berman, author of Brilliant Disguise will be joining me on Wednesday Night’s Phil Naessens Show to talk all things Mets baseball.

While the Mets lost Sunday’s battle they did win the war by taking two of three from the Phillies in Philly. It doesn’t get much better than that my friends!

The Mets travel to Atlanta Moday to begin a three game set with the Braves.
