Well Mets fans, it's too early to make any predictions but in general I'm liking what I'm seeing.

Nice work from all the starters except for Maine (I'm going to assume Santana just had a bad day), the bullpen is looking good, defense is looking good, just wish the bats were a little hotter. Should be an interesting season. Let's go Mets!

if anybody told me "1/2 game out of first place NL East on May 4", i'd have laughed at them before the season began. now it seems clear that the building blocks of a fine team are in place, and one or two quality starters are the difference between a frustrating season and playoff appearance. should be great fun to watch develop.

This offense needs Beltran...badly.
We also need bench help. GMJ needs to go and maybe Catalanato too. I'd cut GMJ and bring up Chris Carter immediately

I hope I don't jinx things by saying this-- but with the exception of Saturday, I've been really impressed with Pelfrey so far. Very glad to hear that MRI he had came back negative.

Beltran is further behind AGAIN, still no baseball activity.

the ace sucked, SUCKED against the biggest rival.

they are in the middle of a 3 game losing streak.

I don't believe the medical results on Pelfrey. these idiots have fucked up injuries and the PR surrounding them for YEARS now.

I'm still 100% frustrated by injury nonsense, performance inconsistency, mediocre expectations and misguided leadership.

after the last couple years i refuse to be a kool-aid drinker, and I've been a fan of this club long enough to know that "believe" is really just a recipe for an ulcer.

it's only May 4th, and on this date in Mets history in 2007:

Posted Image

The second inning Chase Field match up of Julio Franco hitting against Randy Johnson marks the oldest hitter-pitcher confrontation in big league history. With a mere 92+ years of age between the two of them, the nearly 49-year old Mets first baseman takes the Diamondback southpaw, four months shy of 44, deep to extend his own record as the oldest player to homer, and with his ninth inning swipe of second he continues to be the oldest to steal a base.

My dad used to say that all he asks for is that his team take you into the last week of the season with a chance to make the playoffs. That was hs definition of a successful season.

I see no reason why the Mets cant achieve this, because the NL is pretty mediocre. And Philly has holes too (no pun intended):funny1:

And Ike Davis is the man:wook:

except for the gigantic lack of effort in not covering first base, and letting the runner beat you there. no need to have 1st & 3rd, there.

shame on him.

hey, we loaded the bases with one out and scored a run on a walk! then Reyes and Bay failed to drive home anyone else...disappointing. but a run's a run, and Cueto's now thrown 63 pitches through just 3 innings.

Mets 1-0 Reds, mid 3rd.

that's right, they did score a run. :lol:

then surrendered two in the bottom half of the fourth.

then, with 2nd and 3rd, one out, managed to score ONE more run in the top of the fifth. i don't know what to say about Jason Bay - last year the guy was an RBI machine in Boston. he's stranded 5 runners in his last two at-bats here today. :bang: he's on pace for 6 HR, 54 RBI at this point.

Masset in to face D-Wright, Ike, and Gary Mathews Jr. this is probably the best chance the Mets will have to get that run back.

the Bay grace period is over. these numbers are unacceptable, and i've never seen anyone LESS clutch than he's been during his tenure in blue & orange. pretty soon he's going to start being booed at Citi Field, and that's not going to make his job any easier. when Beltran gets healthy, if Bay's still not producing (i realize that's 2 months away), you'll probably see Pagan in left, regardless of Bay's contract.
