Yankee-Coors Field Beats Mets

The game started off great as the Mets loaded the bases with no out in the first. Clean up hitter Jason Bay was in prime position to bust out of his 2 year slumber but managed only a sac fly.

I guess that should be seen as a victory for Bay but the truth is it put a huge damper on what could have been a rally that buried the Yankees before the came to bat.

The sac fly would’ve been the only run we scored if not for a killer AB by Turner. Young Justin battled Burnett with 2 out and 2 on for 8 pitches before serving a single to plate Murphy and give us a 2-0 lead. 

Capuano looked good early bit eventually the Yankee Coors Field effect took it’s toll as HR after HR sailed out of the Bronx Band-box.

It’s so frustrating to play and lose to the EE I’m that joke of a stadium. I know both teams are playing on the same field but the Mets rarely take advantage of the dimensions.

Oh well, let’s win this series today behind Big Pelf at 1:00.

I was shocked to see this wasn’t the Sunday Nite game. I wonder if this is the first time in 15 years the Subway Series didn’t rate enough to be the national broadcast… Or did we lose that distinction last year…???

    It took yesterday’s subway series loss for me to really blow a gasket when it comes to Jason Bay. He has been absolutely pitiful as a NY Met, total 100% bust of historic franchise proportions. I can’t fault us for signing him because we needed a slugging LF an he was out there. Plus, we signed him for a lot less than the Cards got Holliday for. But, he is truly horrible. Forget the HR and RBI production, Bay isn’t even a tough out and he’s right smack in the middle of our lineup. Watching his ABs, the flailing - sometimes it seems like he’s missing pitches by a foot! And he’s almost always late. Not sure how to explain his sudden suckiness but I am sick & tired of seeing him on the team by now.

    It seems like the novelty of interleague play is wearing off. In fact I have seen alot of stories about wanting to get rid of it!

    When you are unable to sell out a New York subway series game, that should tell you something!..When it first started 15 years ago didn’t it sell out all the time?

    I would guess since the Cubs have not been to Fenway park in 93 years, might make them the Sunday night game!

    FMFR, the Subway Series would still be selling out if both stadiums had reasonable ticket prices.

    Jason Bay is pathetic but we had a ton of chances to score in the game. One instant which has gone kind of unnoticed was when Turner was up later in the game. Burnett could not get the ball over the plate, we had men on 1st and 2nd, none out and Turner had a 2-0 count and grounded out on a pitch that was in the dirt. That was a killer.

    Revisiting Jason Bay, I cannot take this guy anymore. If he was a guy we brought up from Buffalo, he would be back in AAA weeks ago. This guy is living off of past performance but how long can we wait for this guy to do something, anything? I know he is getting paid a lot of money, but there is absolutely no production from him, none whatsoever. I think we keep on waiting for him to become Jason Bay but maybe he is done.

    baseball is only a game, alhough for us Mets fans, it’s also a form of torture, of which we seem to be gluttons for punishment. however, there are times when we all have tol realize that baseball isn’t all that important.

    the recent news about “The Kid” Gary Carter has hit like a shot to the gut. we all hope and pray for Gary’s complete recovery from this very serious health threat he’s now facing.

    what’s left to say other then ” we love you Gary - get well soon” LET’S GO GARY CARTER
