End of season report card for the Mets

October 8, 2010 by


For a season that opened up with hope, and which was carried to the All-Star break, the Mets once again flamed out and disappointed their fans and had their second consecutive losing season (79-83). Change is now on the horizon as GM Omar Minaya and manager Jerry Manuel were given their pink slips on Monday. […]

Mets finally rip Zach Duke

September 15, 2010 by


The Mets pounded out 14 hits and 9 runs in Tuesday’s win over the Pirates. That in itself was a noticeable feat, given how poor the offense has been for the team in the second half of the season. It was just the 14th time in 57 games that the Mets scored five or more […]

Pagan explains four-hit game

August 25, 2010 by


I really needed to see them. I was struggling. When I see my daughters everything goes away. If I go 0-for-10, I forget about everything,” said Pagan. “I needed to go to my house, see my daughters, so I could start fresh. It was a good trip. It was great to have [time] with them, […]

Dreadful offense dooms July

August 1, 2010 by


After a terrific June in which the team went 18-8, the Mets followed up with a brutal July, in which they posted a dismal 9-17 record. Everyone points to the 2-9 road trip that opened up the second half of the season but the bad play started before the break, when the Mets went 2-4 […]
