Mets Win Slugfest #2

The Mets had another terrific night hitting vs. the Yankees scoring a season high 12 runs in a 12-7 win.  This is now 6 straight for the Mets vs. NYY and they are en-fuego right now. If they play like this in every game, they could be an elite team. The Mets had some great performances, Eric Young Jr. scored 3 runs despite 0 hits on the night. Daniel Murphy went 1-3 with 2 runs, 3 run homer and another RBI to make it 4. David Wright went 3-5 with 2 runs and 2 RBI’s. Curtis Granderson is rocking against his former team in this series. Last night he went 2-3 with a 3 run bomb with 2 runs and walks. Juan Lagares went 1-4 with 1 hit, RBI, and run. Lucas Duda went 2-4 with a RBI and Ruben Tejada went 2-4 with 2runs and a RBI. It’s nice to see the Mets have a total of 6 players drive in a run last night. Zach Wheeler pitched well going 4.1 innings and pitching a career high in pitches. He let up 5 runs and got 2 K’s. Wheeler’s improvement is coming. Daisuke Matsuzaka finally got his 1st relief win of the season, he struck out 4 batters and only let up 1 run.  Vidal Nuno took the loss for the Yankees giving up 7 runs (5 earned)...

Mets Win 5th Straight vs. NYY

Mets 9 – Yankees 7… The Mets took game 1 of the Subway Series after 2 great comebacks and awesome hitting. If the Mets are gonna keep this up, they need to do what they did last night. Only 2 of the Mets 9 runs came on a hit other than a HR. The Mets hit 4 homers vs. the Yankees last night.  Bartolo Colon pitched like himself last night with another 6 run outing but struck out 4 and walked 0. Colon’s tires and 18 win season with the A’s last year is certainly in the books but he should find a way to improve a 2-5 record. The Mets hitting went well with 14 hits. David Wright went 1-5  with a RBI groundout in the 1st inning and a run.  Eric Young Jr. had a 2 run blast, 2 runs and 3 hits in the win. Curtis Granderson went 2-5 with a 2 run homer against his former team. Lucas Duda and Travis d’Arnaud solo homered and d’Arnaud added a 2nd run. Lastly, Chris Young had a big night going 2-4 with a go- ahead 2 run blast.  For NYY, Brett Gardner went 2-5 with a Grand Salami in the 2nd. Derek Jeter went 3-4 in the loss. Yangervis Solarte had a big night going 3-4 with 2 runs and a RBI. Marcus Thornton was charged with...

Subway Series Preview…

On May 12th – 16th, the Mets and Yankees will play in another Subway series to decide the bragging rights of the Big Apple. Here is a report on the series… Mets Projected Lineup 1- Juan Lagares- CF, (.316 AVG) 2- Daniel Murphy- 2B, (.308 AVG) 3- David Wright- 3B, (.277 AVG) 4- Curtis Granderson- RF, (.175 AVG) 5- Chris Young – LF, (.246 AVG) 6- Lucas Duda- 1B, (.266 AVG) 7- Travis D’Arnaud- C, (.200 AVG) 8- Ruben Tejada- SS, (.183 AVG) 9- Bobby Abreu – DH, (.176 AVG), (only DH @ Yankee Stadium, PH @ Citi Field) 9- Pitcher (@ Citi Field) Mets- (Record as of May 9th – 16-17, 4th place in NL East, 3 Gms. back from 1st).  The Mets hitting must be up to the task against this Yankee pitching. In the 3 games the Mets will face (in order) – Hiroki Kuroda, Vidal Nuno and Masahiro Tanaka.  Tanaka is 4-0 on the year and the Japanese , monster money pickup by the Yankees is paying off with him throwing with a 2.53 ERA.  NYM will put out (in order)- Bartolo Colon, Zach Wheeler and Jenrry Mejia. Overall, the Mets starting pitching staff has been good, but Bartolo Colon has been lagging with a disappointing year so far. He is 2-5 with a 5.36 ERA. The bullpen has been a mess for the Mets,...

Rangers Go Down 3-1 vs. Pens

The Penguins have taken so many advantages of Ranger mistakes and turned them into benefits, especially defense which showed last night. The Penguins scored 4 goals on King Henrik Lundqvist yesterday mostly on defensive mistakes.  The Rangers needed a big boost from the crowd, only boo’s came out. Now Down 3-1 in the series and 3 more games in Pittsburgh, the Rangers are in big trouble, they need to win their next 3 to win the series. They need more shots and GOALS! They have only scored 5 goals in the series. The Pens have scored 12! The Rangers must get something going in order to win. The NFL Draft is TODAY! I am psyched! I wonder what awaits with the Block-Buster trades and great or horrible picks. I just worry about the Jets doing something dumb, well, the’ve definitely learned before (Brady Draft, Marino Draft.)  So, J-E-T-S, JETS JETS JETS! The Mets have now fell to under 500 (16-17) after losing to the Marlins 1-0 on ANOTHER walk-off hit by the Fish. That is 3 walk-offs given up in their last 5 for the Mets, (11-10 to Colorado, 4-3 to Marlins and 1-0 to the Marlins). The Mets need to pick themselves up and score some runs. They have been shut out in their last 2. Hopefully they can move up in the NL East order now a...

“All Aboard”! BLOWOUT CENTRAL!

The NBA  round 2 playoffs started yesterday with 2 blowouts.   Despite blowout day 1, I think these series can be extremely close. Here are the scores from yesterday…   Nets     86             Deron Williams- 17 points, 3 rebounds and assists Heat    107           LeBron James- 22 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists   Spurs  116           Tony Parker- 33 points, 9 assists, 3 rebounds Blazers 92           LaMarcus Aldridge- 32 points, 14 rebounds And I thought these games (above) were going to be to the end! I really like the Nets vs. Heat series, it reminds me of a Boston vs. Miami game last year (but Boston just got better)…  In the end, Miami has THE Big 3 and is potentially splitting up, so they will and can win this series but not without some major road-blocks. The Blazers vs. Spurs series should be good but Portland doesn’t have enough good players to defeat San Antonio’s stars, and the fact that Portland is a young team with a potential. I have Spurs in 6… The NFL Draft is tomorrow!!!!!!!   I am soooooooooooo excited!!!!! Hopefully my Jets will make a good move, maybe going with Odell Beckham jr. to boost their speedy offense.  The Jets are building a fast,...
