The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets 3 Marlins 2

The Mets swept the Marlins yesterdayat Citi Field by a score of three to two. After thirteen pitches pinch hitter Justin Turner walked with the bases loaded to end the dramatic come from behind victory.

These are the type of wins that make believers out of people.

Break out the dustpan the Marlins just got swept 🙂

Once again Jonathon Niese pitched extremely well and the bullpen came in and held off the fishes long enough for the ninth inning heroics to occur.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis is quickly making a name for himself both at the plate and in centerfield as well.  I like what I’m seeing so far from him.

Sad news yesterday. Mike Pelfrey will be having Tommy John surgery and will be out for at least a year. I’m not his biggest fan but I didn’t want him to end his career with the Mets this way….I wish him all the best.

Up next are the Rockies!

The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets 5 Giants 4

I watched most of the game and lucky me I got to witness the ninth inning meltdown by closer Frank Francisco and unlucky for me the stream went dead and I missed being able to watch the Mets win the game in the bottom of the ninth.

I wish I would’ve missed the top of the ninth as well 🙂

What I did see was Mike Pelfrey pitch his heart out last night. He went eight innings allowing only one run on six hits. Pelfrey fanned three and walked only one and I must say I’ve been impressed with “Big Pelf” thus far this season. Not impressed enough to wish he remained on the team mind you, but impressed enough that maybe, just maybe, one day I will want him to be on the team.

I also saw Ruben Tejada drive in the first three runs of the game and with each and every game that kid is showing that he not only belongs in the show but that he might just become a star in this game.

Let’s get back to that ninth inning. I couldn’t believe that Terry Collins didn’t allow Pelfrey to finish the game….Pelfrey was on a roll so why not let him try and finish it? I get the fact Collins needs to get his closer some work but Pelfrey was really pitching well and a complete game victory could have meant far more in the long run.

Then the boos came…

The Mets fans were livid after that blown save by Francisco….and rightly so….I was really pissed off myself and in a way was glad the stream shut down….and my anger turned to relief after I saw that the Mets came back and won this game the way they did.

They shouldn’t of had to but that’s baseball I guess….

David Wright had his consecutive games hitting streak snapped…..to his credit Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong pitched incredibly well yesterday.

Later today the Mets take on the Giants in game three of their four game series.

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.
