  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/9/12 — R.A. Dickey

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/9/12 — R.A. Dickey

    Heading into last night, Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey appeared to be the favorite to win the National League Cy Young award, and his performance against the Miami Marlins should only help his chances. Dickey entered the game with a 14-3 record and a 2.82 ERA, and he improved his numbers in each of those […]

    Mets Fan Fakes Fall On Live TV…And It Wasn’t The First Time (Videos)

    Apparently the folks who produce the Mets games over at SportsNet New York are a little predictable, using the same shots from the same camera night after night. And there’s at least one Mets fan who’s decided to take advantage of that predictability. We don’t know his name, but he’s known as the falling fan. […]

    Not-So-Classy Female Yankees Fan Gets Ejected From Citi Field (Video)

    Baseball games are a great example of the social contract. Thousands of people show up to watch a ball game, and they all behave properly as part of an unspoken agreement that they engage in with the stadium and its workers. But not everybody is always on board with this agreement. Take the female Yankees […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 6/18/12 — R.A. Dickey

    During his last start, Mets pitcher R.A. Dicky allowed only one hit against (although, many still believe it was an error, and not a hit) while striking out 12 batters.  It was perhaps the most impressive pitching performance of his career, and few would have expected him to provide a repeat performance in his very […]

    David Takes On Goliath At Minute Maid Park (Video)

    A battle of David vs. Goliath unfolded on the field at Minute Maid Park Tuesday night during a game between the New York Mets and the Houston Astros, as the tallest man in the Majors faced off against the shortest. With the Astros leading 6-3 in the bottom of the eighth inning, 5’5″ Jose Altuve […]

  • This Day In Sports History (October 27th) – New York Mets

    This Day In Sports History (October 27th) – New York Mets

    It was on this day in 1986 that the New York Mets and Boston Red Sox played game seven of the World Series.  The Mets would win the deciding game by a score of 8-5, earning the franchise their second World Series title. Game six of the series would go to extra innings, and the […]

    Angel Pagan Rings His Own Bell With His Own Bat (Video)

    It sure does suck to be a member of the New York Mets these days.  Not only have they failed to make the playoffs in each of the past five seasons, despite their $120-million payroll, but their players just can’t seem to get a break when it comes to fighting off the injury bug. Big […]

    Picture Of The Day: Can You Hear Me Now?

    I wonder what kind of reception they get with those bananas?  It has got to be better than what we got from those giant bricks many of us used back in the early 90s. All kidding aside, I’ve been thinking about this image and it just doesn’t make any sense to me.  After all, who […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/29/11 — Angel Pagan

    After launching two grand slams and scoring 14 runs in a route of the Detroit Tigers one night earlier, the New York Mets were looking for an equally impressive encore performance last night, and they got just that. The Mets’ bats were on fire once again, as they surpassed Tuesday’s total with an incredible 20-hit, […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/12/11 — Carlos Beltran

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/12/11 — Carlos Beltran

    Carlos Beltran entered yesterday afternoon’s game against the Colorado Rockies with an unimpressive five home runs and 18 RBIs on the season.  He would improve upon those totals in a big way, thanks in large part to three at bats that would all end the same way. If chicks really do dig the long ball, […]
