Izzy Goes Benitez

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

Wow that was a long way to come back only to lose in the 9th.

This game has devastating loss written all over it - only we’re not in a pennant race so it’s really not devastating at all so much as frustrating.

I guess I’ve already come to rely on Izzy because when he sufrendered 3 walks and a hit w/o retiring a batter I was shocked. Full on meltdown mode.

That was an absolute crazy game. K-Rod returned only to give up a 2 run shot to Pagan in the 8th. I was sorta surprised to see people booing him.

BMF was super pissed at him when he went thru all that drama way back when but I’m not max at him anymore. 

Another big hit for Duda delivering a 2 tun dbl after not stating the game.

Capuano has become just awful - worse with every start

9 Straight Home Opener Losses

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

The more Keith and Gary talked about it the more it boggled my mind. The Mets haven’t won an opening game in a home series all year - ALL YEAR. 

I don’t know how to explain it nor do I know what to make of it…

Meanwhile what was Prince Fielder thinking stepping to Brydak? The pitcher buzzed him inside but nothing THAT bad.

Maybe Prince was muttering to himself after grounding out but Byrdak said something like WTf and Prince ran and got in his face.

Seemed like Prince was taking some other frustration out on our pitcher.

The benches emptied but nothing serious. 

Great to see K-Rod lapping around with the Met pen after the non-brawl

Gotta Love SD 

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

If there’s any place in the majors that I feel good about going to when the Mets aren’t playing well it’s SD.

No offense Padres but you’re almost always inept offense and giant park means we’re gonna be in every game even if we’re not scoring.

But score they did on Wed as Wright blasted a 3 run job and Pagan knocked in 3 en route to a 7-3 final.

But there was defense too - Gee with a pretty behind the back snagging of a 1 hopped, Pridie with a running grab and Wright diving towards the line and faking a throw to first which led to catching Maybin rounding 3rd to end the inning. 

I think it’s safe to say the Magic is Back with D Wright. 

Gee was a beast again. Granted this was against the Pods but still great to see Gee finding his early season form again. 

Pagan is starting to make a push to stay in NY. It’s been such and ugly year for so long but he’s just about back to .260

BMF is back after missing yesterday’s post due to editing crunch on my TV show City Gridiron…
