Niese Shines Through Loss

Young gun Jon Niese should’ve been the story of the night. Unfortunately they blew their 6th consecutive home game when leading in the 7th or later. A new mark for futility never before done in the history of the game.

Niese was the real deal though allowing 2 runs on 8H, 1BB, 7K in 7.2 IP

So long as Niese stays healthy he’s gonna be legit arm for us for years to come.

    Niese looks great. His curve was awesome, lots of late life on his fastball. He & Cap - our 1-2 punch.

    Jose Ole! Nice non-play in a critical point of the game. Please don’t rattle of stats espousing how great Reyes is anymore.

    Looks like something’s clicked for Tejada at the plate lately…ever since that marathon AB that resulted in a BB, he seems to have a better approach at the plate - good for him. I hope he can keep it going…

    Are you serious? I heard that Babe Ruth once made a crucial error in a regular season game. Guy has no business being in the hall of fame.

    (and no I am not comparing Jose Reyes to Babe Ruth I am pointing out how ridiculous your statement is).

    How can anyone have anything positive to say after watching these Mets games?

    Well, K-Rod is back to being what I expected.. pathetic.

    Well, it’s June 4th and time for football season.. At least the Mets were legit past May this year.

    Good to see that Jason Bay is still 2 RBI’s ahead of Willie Harris.

  4. Howard Says:

    By the way, based on a 162 game season, Jason Bay is projected to have about 28 RBI’s…. not bad!

    in following baseball since 1949, i ‘ve discovered one salient point, anyone can make an error, no matter how great a player he may or may not be. the real test is not making errors on a consitent basis.

    the old Brooklyn Dodgers team once featured an outfielder named Babe Herman who was more noted for using his mitt for defensive prurposes rather then for fielding. he was once thrown out while attempting to take an extra base, but didn’t attempt a slide. when his manager demanded to know why he didn’t slide Babe Herman excused himself from sliding because he didn’t wish to break the three cigars he had in his pocket.

    who can ever forget the NY Mets when Marve Thronberry and Dr Strangeglove Dick Stuart roamed the Polo Grounds and Shea Stadium?

    Ok, so Jose Reyes made an error. regrettable. however Don Hahn made an error behind Tom Seaver in the 1973 Series Vs Oakland, and cost the game, which also led to losing the whole series as well.

    during the 1986 Series Mets Vs Bosox, Tim Tuffle made a costly error which led to a loss, and who can forget Bill Buckner and the winning run in game 6.

    errors happen. i don’t think Reyes deserves to end up like the final scene of the remake of The Body Snatchers, when the Pod People surround the last human, pointing at him and making Pod People screeching wails at him. error …. error…. error etc

    “At least the Mets were legit past May this year.”..Really?…They were?

    Never thought they made it past April, unless you are going strictly on math!

    Lets gets back to reality…we are one game out of the basement!

    That is the only real contest we have..Who is going to finish last!

    To quote Dickens: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it ws the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way.”

    @TDFKABL: brilliant!!

  9. BrooklynBill is the smartest guy I know Says:

    BrooklynBill is right. If Reyes was great, he would never have made that error. The Mets should just release him.

  10. CowCrusher Says:

    When it is all said and done, Dicken’s is best read by Foghorn Leghorn….everything else pales in comparisson ;-)

  11. Florida Met Fan Rich Says:

    ^ Howard: I am positive- WE SUCK!

  12. BrooklynBill Says:

    ^BrooklynBill is the smartest guy I know - you must know very few people. I feel sorry for you ;)

    Even the best will make an occasional physical error. That play, or non-play, was a mental error as well…as an IF, if you’re not going to make a play on a ball like that, at least knock it down to keep it in the IF. That’s what they are taught to do from little league. Oh well…by that point in the game, Reyes already had another triple so, it was already a good statistical night and it’s not like the game was on FOX or ESPN or anything.

    The only question that remains is
