The Met Bison Mishmosh

Mets fall 3-1 to the Giants

Basically, The Mets' Buffalo Bison infield was not up to MLB speed tonight. The Mets jumped ahead tonight in the first on back to back 2 out doubles by All Star Carlos Beltran and Daniel Murphy to put the Mets up one zip. But slow and sloppy infield play in the bottom of the first helped the Giants jump up 2-1, and that was all Tim Lincecum would need to close the door on the Mets.

Chris Capuano pitched well tonight to keep the Mets in the game, but the offense laid flat and never really got back in it.

The Met Bison Mishmosh
Mets Blob could nit pick about our predominantly AAA infield tonight, but we are dancing with who brung us at this point. We have a scrappy bunch who are playing their hearts out.

Day to day Murphy, Tejada, & Turner have all played different positions in the infield this year. First the Mets lost Davis, then Wright, and then the final nail in the infield coffin, the loss of Reyes. Yet this Bison Met marriage has played beyond all expectations both defensively and offensively. None of the baseball know-it-alls would have put the Mets full complement out of spring training above the .500 mark by the break. But somehow Terry Collins has taken every setback, injury, and Wilpon slander and made it work beyond our expectations.
We owe this to Terry Collins and the heart of this team. Because of our Mets guts and never give up spirit, we have to let tonight's tight loss slide, give our boys a break, and cheer them on again tomorrow.

Mets 5 - Giants 2

The Happy "San Friday" Nightcap
Hairston Is The Hero

With a 2-2 tie in the top of the 9th, Scott Hairston ripped a pinch hit home run off of San Francisco closer and professional absurdist, Brian Wilson

To call Wilson's current state of beard ridiculous is ridiculous. For ridiculous is not enough of an adjective anymore, and Mets Blob is not sure if one exists. It looks as if the collective crotches of every 70's gang bang film have converged on his chin like a swarm of ghastly porno bees. 

Dickey battled through injuries and pitched great. Pagan homered, and All Star Carlos Beltran went 3-5 in the victory.

Full recap @ NY

Tonight at 9:05pm the Mets face another freak in "The Freak" Tim Lincecum. If the Mets use their new found "working a deep count" approach at the plate, they can beat the at times wild Lincecum.

Dodgers 6 - Mets 0

Three out of Four Ain’t Bad
Clayton Kershaw dominated the Mets tonight, leading the Dodgers to a 6-0 win. Dillon Gee stood toe to toe with Kershaw for five innings but fell apart in the sixth, giving up 5 runs.
Still, the Mets should be applauded for taking 3 of 4 games to start the West Coast trip. Hopefully the bats can get back on track in San Francisco against the World Champs. Giants’ pitching is great but the Mets have fared well against top notch hurlers all year.

The Sandy Man puts Mets Blob to Sleep
Sandy “No Money Ball” Alderson chatted with Gary and Ron tonight and said absolutely nothing. The more he spoke, the more evasive he got. Gary and Ron sucked up and laughed at Sandy’s lame quips to the point of embarrassment. With all the yuks you would have thought Chris Rock had joined the booth. Sandy speaks in a monotone that matches his khaki pants perfectly. He comes off as no more than a waste of space politician. Mets Blob thinks Alderson is the kind of guy who would benefit from being slapped with a dead fish - you know, just to perk him up a bit.

Jose Reyes goes on the DL
Misdiagnosed Again

Mets Blob has let the world know about the Mets laughable medical staff all season. This garbage has been going on for too many years. The only ones who don’t seem to get it continue to be Mets management and ownership. The doctor’s from The Hospital for Special Surgery are clueless.

Mets 5 - Dodgers 3

The Mets won their 4th straight tonight, beating the Dodgers 5-3. Mets Blob was unable to do it's normal coverage tonight. Please forgive the Blob and check out this game recap from NY
Check out the recap at NY
Remarkably this was also the 4th game in a row the Mets have won without Jose Reyes. Sadly, it's looking like they will have to figure out a way to keep on winning without him. Check out link below.
Reyes' day to day looking like a trip to the DL. What a shock, Met docs don't know shit once again!

The Happy Nightcap

Mets 6 - Dodgers 0

To the Mets, Dodger Stadium seems small.

Beltran goes deep, and Bay went deep twice. Bay is starting to look like the guy we thought we signed. So be it! Welcome to the Mets, Jason Bay.

Thanks, Omar! Pelf got lucky for "On the Road" Pelf. He seems to pitch a little better to Ronny. He is a useless nut bag, and we will take what we can get.
Mets Blob would tell you more, but in truth, the Blob is in Vegas and knows most of you only read the headline, click like, and will never read this.

Goooood Nightall!

Mets 5 – Dodgers 2

The Bankruptcy Bowl Round 1

The Mets took the opener of the Bankruptcy bowl from the Dodgers tonight 5-2. Rubby De La Rosa held the Mets hitless until the sixth when Ruben Tejada stroked a single which opened the flood gates. Angel Pagan, Carlos Beltran and Daniel Murphy each followed with RBI doubles to put the Mets up 3-2. Jason Bay and Lucas Duda drove in runs in the 8th to give the Mets a 5-2 lead.

Chris Capuano went 6 innings, giving up 2 runs on 6 hits. Chris was not great, but he got the job done. Mets Blob has said it all along. Capuano is a pro and he will give you all he has every time he takes the mound

Bobby Parnell hit 101mph on the gun throwing two dominant innings. Parnell has teased us with his stuff in the past so let’s not get too excited. However, if he keeps throwing like this, look out, the Mets bullpen will go from being a weakness to being strength.

4 of the Mets 5 runs tonight came with 2 outs. The Mets lead the league in two out hits which indicates they are buying into hitting coach Dave Hudgen’s philosophy.

Jason Bay made a nice catch crashing into the left field fence: The same fence that made his head snap back like a Pez dispenser last year, ending his season. Most people think Bay showed great courage catching a ball so close to the wall tonight. Mets Blob thinks Bay was so concussed last year that he has no recollection of the play and thereby, no fear.

Close friends of Jason confirm this theory, saying Bay has no idea he was injured playing ball. Childhood friend, Chet Gordon explains. “We told Jason he was trampled by a moose. That kind of Moose-Induced brain damage is pretty common up here in Canada. So there is no issue with him running toward the fence. But hell will be a crackin’ before Jason runs toward a moose. He’s scared shitless of ‘em now.”

Mets Blobber, Alex, was at the game tonight. He dressed in his alternate road uniform - full Ninja attire – in order to keep the murderous LA fans off his back. To show he meant business during batting practice, Alex threw a Dodger Dog up in the air and sliced it into 100 pieces before it reached the ground.

Lets Go Mets!

Jose Reyes' Hamstring

Jose Reyes – Grade 1 Hamstring Strain

The MRI on the left hamstring of Jose Reyes revealed a grade 1 strain. He is not expected to miss significant time. While this sounds like good news, remember Mets doctors were reading the MRI. Mets Fans can only hope Reyes was not misdiagnosed. Remember, in 2009 Mets doctors misdiagnosed Reyes right hamstring injury and tried to blame the LA Dodgers team physician for their own incompetence. Check out this NY Times article for the ugly details:

Congratulations Jose and Carlos!

Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran are 2011 National League All Stars. Reyes will get the start after overtaking Troy Tulowitzki in the voting. Beltran was named as a reserve. Jose and Carlos have led the way for the Mets this season and both are deserving of the honor. Mets Blob hopes Reyes’ hammy does not keep him out of the game.- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

The Happy Nightcap

The Happy Nightcap

Mets 3 – Yankees 2

Late Game Magic

The Mets trailed the Yankees today 2-1 going to the bottom of the 9th inning. Mariano Rivera took the mound to close the door and things looked bleak in Metsville. The obnoxious screams of spoiled, front running Yankee fans filled the air at Citi Field as Mets fans braced for the inevitable. The sweep. Two quick outs and the unctuous swine got louder. Yankee blowhards were in full force, screaming at the tops of their bloated lungs. Mets Blob wishes we could make out what the Yankee fans were saying but when they yell like that they don’t use words. It is more of a collective, mocking groan.

It is very similar to the sound Andrew Dice Clay would make if he was violated in a prison shower: “Ugh…Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh!” 15,000 douchebags grunting in unison: “Ugh…Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.” They all make the same face, too. It is very similar to the face Andrew Dice Clay would make if he was violated in a prison shower.

But wait. A two out walk to Jason Bay and a single by Lucas Duda put runners on first and third. Josh Thole is coming up. Wait, that’s not Josh Thole, that’s Ronny Paulino - batting for Josh Thole.

Terry Collins goes to the right handed bat to take Mariano’s vicious cutter away. Bang! Paulino strokes a single to right field and the Mets tie the game at 2. The slimy Yankee fans fall silent. When a Ruban Tejada grounder squirts through the legs of Ramiro Pena it looks like the Mets might win. No – too good to be true. Brett Gardner nails the lumbering Lucas Duda at the plate and we play on.

Fast forward to 2 outs in the bottom of the 10th. The bases are loaded - not as loaded as the vile Yankee fans - but loaded. How did we get here? Oh, right. Ex Met Luis Ayala - now sucking for the Yankees - started the mess. Ayala was replaced by the even suckier Boone Logan. The Boonester got Daniel Murphy to hit a weak chopper to short but Ramiro Pena butchered the play for his second huge error. Joe Girardi goes to the pen and brings in the immortal Hector Noesi.

Jason Bay awakens from his nap and ambles to the plate. A vacant “God Bless Lobotomies” stare comes across the faces of the Yankee faithful. Could the mighty Yankees actually choke the game away? Crack! Jason Bay rips the ball into the right center gap and Scott Hairston comes home with the winning run.

Mets Win! Mets Win! Mets Fans go wild and laugh - Max Cady style - as they usher their unwelcome guests from the park. The shocked and confused Yankee brethren slink away, returning to the holes they crawled out of.
