The Subway Series


Friday was definitely anti-climactic. Espn went through all this trouble for this graphic and the game got rained out.


The good news? The Mets did not lose. The bad news? The still have to make up the game. It will be played as part of a double header on Sunday. I hope this extra day off helps them in some way by letting them regroup a bit. I'm sure Al's arm could use the extra days rest at his advanced age. The way I look at it, it can only spell success for our Metropolitans. I figure this is an advantage for the Mets anyway. The Yankees are an old team, the oldest in the majors in fact, and the Mets got younger, faster, and more athletic this off-season so they will be more energized for the second game of the double header. Oh wait, they are just as old as the Yankees.

I’m actually feeling better today about the Mets chances for some strange reason. Halsey, watch out. THE METS ARE COMING TO LAY A HURTING ON YOU BIATCH! JUST LIKE THEY DID TO THAT OTHER YANKEE ROOKIE LEFT HANDER CLAUSSEN LAST YEAR! Ummm, I forgot. Claussen shut them down at Shea last year while I watched the game stupefied wondering what I did to deserve this torture. Today's game is actually hauntingly similar to last year. The veteran Met lefty vs. the Yankee rookie lefty. I remember saying, "there is no way the Mets can manage to lose this one". Then Glavine proceeded to get lit up for eight runs and did not even make it through the fifth. That was last year, and this is a different team. Besides, what are the chances that it happens twice in two years the Mets. I mean it cannot happen again....right?

  • More good news? The hottest damn team in baseball, the D-Rays, are going to put the smack down on the Marlins this entire weekend. They got of to a good start and won on Friday so the Mets made up a 1/2 game in the standings for doing nothing.

  • If that was not enough, Manny and the Red Sox made the Phillies wish the 10 run rule was employed in the majors. Actually, the Phillies never batted in the 9th, so maybe the did call the game due to the 10 run rule. They'll probably blame the rain, but it's obvious to me what happened.

  • Carlos Beltran had two of Houston's three hits tonight in their loss to the Rangers.

  • David Wright was 1 for 4 with another homerun in the Tides loss to Scranton. That makes three in eleven games (I think, I’m too lazy to check). He is batting .341 so far. Also in that game, Erickson stamped his one way ticket out of town. He gave up four earned runs (seven total runs) in six innings of work. Amazingly his ERA still went down after that performance.

  • Scott Kazmir went five innings surrendering two runs, struck out five, walked three and allowed four hits in his start on Friday. He did not get the win though, but did bring his ERA down to 4.50. He looks like he is regaining form and hopefully will see some AA at some point in July.

  • Yusmeiro Petit gave up four runs and took his second loss of the season. He pitched better than his line dictates. He had one bad inning that he gave up all of his runs. He still K'd ten and only walked one. He is making a habit of double digit strikeouts. I have no idea how many games he had double digit K's in, but I'm guessing it is a lot. I know he's done it in last three or four games.

  • The ESPN Rumor Mill suggests that Jacque Jones may be sacrifed for pitching due to the glut of outfielders in Minnesota. When ask by by the St. Paul Pioneer Press if there were any potential deals in the works, GM Terry Ryan said, "none of your business." Classic. How do you not like Terry Ryan?

  • Randy Johnson needs four more strikeouts to reach 4,000.

  • If for some strange reason you do not go to The Raindrops often, then you may have missed this funny ass link yesterday.

    obviously like your website but you have to test the spelling on quite a
    few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find
    it very bothersome to inform the truth nevertheless I'll certainly come back again.
