Good thing for the YAAAANKEES that they were off last night... can't beat the NATS in their own softball park. Last week Francesa is gushing that "the YAAANKEES will hit 'a million' homeruns in the stadium against Washington." The ultimate YAAANKEE apologist eats his words AGAIN. 50/50 to make the playoffs.

The pattern is so familiar by now...Mets lose a player to an injury but win a game...Mets win a game, but lose another player. With so many injured players, I am amazed that the Mets are still in contention. It says something about the surprising depth of the bench, the farm system, and yes, even Omar.

Yes, I'm a glass-half-full guy. ;-)

They played with HEART last night. It was a wake up call for the second stringers. Phils lose 6 in a row. It won't last though, but the METS will hang in there waiting for August. I still believe.

It says the Phillies have not put together a solid run - yet. Philadelphia is a better team despite spotty starting pitching, which clearly needs to be addressed. The Mets headed by Minaya and his minions are clueless when it comes to player development. Jon Switzer, Ken Takahashi, Ramon Martinez, Wilson Valdez and the newest retread Elmer Dessens. Pitiful. They can't make a trade because they don't have anything to trade. The players they bring up from the minor leagues are washed up.

I like his predictions and have made some money off of them. Whatever he predicts,(especially where the yankees are concerned) bet the opposite. Works like a charm. The 2006 playoffs, I made a few grand when he said the yankees would kill the Tigers, "How can they stop that Yankee juggernaut offense." he claimed. You'd think a self-proclaimed sports expert would know good pitching always beats good hitting. The guy's a joke and knows about as much as the next guy. He looked great for years working with Russo, the tennis expert, who knows very little about anything else.

Spotty starting pitching for the Phils? How about sucks. Now they are getting the injury bug and look what happens. ALL of the players you mentioned on the Mets are older players aquired through trades, so you KNOW next to nothing about the Mets actual player development. Phillies having a hard time overcoming losses of Ibanez, Lidge and Condrey. Let's see how'd they'd do losing Howard, Rollins and Utley the equivalent of Reyes, Delgado and Beltran? You have blind hate and nothing else.

Los nostephanan....countdown to mental collapse before Sept. And you can make whatever comments you wish, but it doesn't change the fact that you are brain dead. That aside, it seems to me that the trainers on this team need to be addressed. I can understand one or two injuries, and yes a couple of players had existing problems that got worse, but this is past ridiculous. It is hard to believe that all these players are just coming up lame for no reason. Manuel is going to have to figure out a way to get the best out of who is healthy. This is past nuts.

Let's Go Mets!... Last night I saw a game free of Mets errors, and when that happens the chances are good that any team can be beaten - the old fundamental baseball playing, which this team lacks at times - and let's hope they can keep it up tonight. A little playing concentration goes a long way...

A win is a win no matter what the lineup is. What a performance by Brian Stokes getting Albert Pujols out on a double play. Was anyone out there expecting the worst? A two run homer to put them ahead would have equaled another heartbreaking loss in a season full of them. Mr popup botcher Castillo 3 for 3, Omir 4 for 4. Wright & Cora pitching in & speaking of pitching a very good outing for Tim Redding. Despite giving up 4 runs in 7+ innings with 2 homers allowed, it was a shot in the arm. The bullpen is spent & worn. We need more long outings by our starters to keep our bullpen fresh. K-Rod 1-2-3 in the 9th. Tonight hopefully Livan can go 7-8 or maybe 9 (he can throw 130-140 pitches he's durable) then Nieve Wednesday & Johan vs Carpenter on Thursday. Potential 1-nil, 2-1 pitchers duel possible. They do great winning the opener of series but end up losing series. Gotta win series. Hopefully the Mets can win 3 of 4 before the big Yankees series this weekend. LETS Go METS!!!

Jack, Three words for you World Baseball Classic. Pushing their bodies that weren't ready to do so yet. Look at Matisuka on the Red Sox, pitched great in the WBC, on the DL now! They should play this stupid thing in November next time.

. Yea you could all this sh*t but how are the Mets winning with 9 players on the DL, I guess these calls up's and the bench are not so bad. I'm sure that logic is beyond your shoe sized IQ.
hahahahaha

Two scrub players nobody wanted, Nieves and Redding are stepping up and carrying this team while the vaunted Maine and Pelfrey and Perez and all the other prima donnas are collecting their millions and smirking at all of us. Life mimics baseball and the obscure among us carry the day.
