Gil Hodges would have embareced Fernando if he did not run out a play. I would also drive him and Jon Niese to Toronto for Roy Halladay.

So far life is good being a NY fan. Both teams are now in first place going into today's off day. I know, it's only May but it's something to get excited about. So far in this 13 game stretch of inferior competition Mets sweeep the Nats with the Fish up next over the weekend. Hope the Mets continue the good work & hopefully get some of our injured players back. Johan although uncharacteristically wild with 6 walks & 11 K's still got enough run support to win & finally Daniel Murphy broke out with a big game. Hopefully it continues. LETS GO METS!!!!!!

You've got to give credit to Manuel, with all the injuries and having your 2nd string team on the field, they're still winning. And those guys sitting on the bench for a game or two, usually come back and play harder (Murphy, Castro).

No they are tied for first at 27-20. Red Sox lost last night.

Is it just me or are the Mets playing better TEAM ball since three of the so called "core" players are out of the lineup?
I have previously posted that there was something wrong with the chemistry of this team, collapses in the past two seasons. Yea, I know the bullpen sucked last year BUT good teams overcome and find a way to win.
I can't put it on any one player but with Reyes,Beltran and Delgado all out of the mix for now, we are winning games, even scoring runs late in the game, a very positive sign. Is it time to put a package together for Matt Holliday? using one or more of the core or with/and Church?
Marlins up next, they have good pitching and hitting, winning this series will be a confidence booster.

No Its just you. They got a lucky 9th inning in Boston and just finished with the worst team in baseball. The Mets are going nowhere without Beltran and Reyes, and I am not convinced the Shef's kitchen will still be hot in September.

If you want to judge a team by a handful of games you are watching the wrong sport.

I saw the play and did not think it was a home run. If the Subway sign overhangs the field by 8 feet, how could the ball hit the sign and then continue forward and bounce off the right field fence? If it hit the sign it would have bounced back towards the infield, no?
This was definately a Homerun. I was there and the ball was hit so high and far that when the ball started its decent it grazed the subway sign just enough to change direction and land in the field of play.

I'm a lifelong Met fan who loves the idea of a new ballpark, but I am not a fan of Citifield... yet. That overhang is ridiculous. The wall with its changing hieghts and depths is just going to get somebody hurt. They need to address both issues as soon as possible.
The Nats announcers, Dribble and Drool, have done nothing but complain about the ballpark. They make some valid points. The visiting bullpen is completely removed from the ballpark, which is insulting to visiting players and there is way too much signage that interferes with sightlines. There will be plenty of contreversy there this year.
One other note. I think Jackie Robinson is a true hero of American sports and American life in general... but opening up a museum to him... in Queens, and in the Mets' ballpark without any recognition for Mets players of the past.
They swung and missed with that one. I'd have said they should have a wall dedicated to him, and when you walked into that building you should be looking at Seaver,[Gil] Hodges, Harrelson, Stearns, Carter, Hernandez, Piazza, Kranepool, Koosman, Matlack, Orosco... and Robinson.

Actually maybe you should get spell check. Yes I miss spelled embarrassed, however I hate to tell you Cleon Jones and Gil Hodges are both spelled correct.http://www.baseball-re ference.com/players/j/jonescl0 1.shtmlSometimes it is better to remain silent and have people think you are stupid then open your mouth and remove all doubt.

I agree with you about the height of the walls, they should be changed. That gap in right center took away Wright's HR alley.
You're also right the Jackie Robinson part is too much. It could have been part of the rotunda with the rest dedicated to past Met teams and players. If you sat in the overhang you might change your mind. It's a great view and the intention was for the fans to be closer and feel a part of the game. It succeeded there.

Enjoyed the comments (spelling mistakes aside) and I agree with those that are saying hold on a minute - it's early and the Nats are terrible BUT these are exactly the kind of series we would lose last year - so the fact that we swept them and took 2 out of 3 from the BoSox after losing all three in L.A. IS a good sign. And I do like how the subs are stepping up (even though Ramon has got to go - I will personally drive him back to Buffalo) but I miss Beltran and his .367 average. GO METS!
