Capuano Dazzles - the Ace is Back

 

Holy Crap - where did THAT come from?!?

Chris Capuano That has to be the best game of his career not to mention one of the best games a Met has ever thrown.

I would venture to say this is the best game ever thrown at CityField… Right?

*** both weekend games are cancelled due to Irene’s impending arrival ***

Looks like it may losing some steam before it gets here but don’t leave anything to chance. Batton the hatches and secure anything that could bs picked up and thrown by the wind.

    Mets on a on three day win streak!…..GOOD NIGHT IRENE!

    “The Ace is Back.” I’m glad to see Irene hasn’t stopped BMF’s penchant for hyperbole!

  3. Fort Greene Met Fan Says:

    That was fantastic—you never know who will step up on this team. Can he bottle that start and figure out how he did it? Jeez louise.

    I’m up on a mountain upstate and will probably lose power for days or even more. No baseball! Hopefully I can get into town to at least check the scores…

    I didn’t get to watch this game, only listened on the radio. And no discredit to Cappy — he clearly WAS magnificent, but I was at Citi last year when Dickey threw his 1-hit shutout over the Phillies, and THAT is the best game ever pitched there, IMO. By a Met, at least…

  5. ProfessorReyes Says:

    El Dude, Dickey was great, and so was Maine’s no no-no, but you had to watch Cappy to appreciate it, you could almost feel the zone he was in through the tv.
    I don’t think Gary would have been so over the top about it if he didn’t believe it, he’s a pretty honest guy.

    Some perspective:

    In other words, just tip your hat to the guy, period! lol
    We really are a bunch of dysfunctional fans when we can’t just appreciate a benchmark performance without qualifying it and taking it down a notch, come on!

    …that last part I’m not talking about you, El Dude.

  7. ProfessorReyes Says:

    Also, if you look at that “Capuano shutout” video, except for the game ending strikeout pitch, you’ll see Thole never moves his glove.

    Yes, just sitting here waiting for the damn hurricane to show up so I can set the sump pump to constantly on….

    “We really are a bunch of dysfunctional fans when we can’t just appreciate a benchmark performance without qualifying it and taking it down a notch, come on!” - Professor Reyes

    The only way you can know it’s a benchmark performance is to compare it to everything else that came before it. In that process, you are naturally going to qualify it.

    Why are you so concerned about how everybody else chooses to view things? Who cares if some of us like to determine/argue about how good it was? Why must you associate a value judgement (calling us a bunch of dysfunctional fans) because that’s the way we like to look at it?

    P.S. “…that last part I’m not talking about you, El Dude.” - Professor Reyes

    Since nobody else had compared Capuano’s performance to anybody other Mets in this thread, exactly who are you talking about if not El Dude?

  10. BlondiesJake Says:

    anybody = any

    Best start of the year as far as I’m concerned. I was waiting for things to blow up in the 5th or 6th but happily he was “on” and that never occurred. Slider/FB was working like magic - not sure how much Thole had to do with it but again, amazing performance and what a way to end it!
