I'll be at tonight's game. Hopefully between the weather and Mets play it will be worth the money.

Very quick hook on Marcum who is getting giving some weak hits. I hate this.

All things considered, nice job by Hawkins. Results could've been a lot worse with the situation he came in

Schafer walks yet again. 4 times. 4 times! He and Pena have combined to reach base 6 times in 6 PA.

Deserve to lose for that crap.

When the Braves play the Mets they get every single break, every single bullsh!t bloop, call on the outside corner, cue shot off the bat...everything falls in for them

Well that's game. Mets bats have gone silent yet again. Jordan freakin' Schafer has gotten on more times than the ENTIRE Mets lineup has.

Edit: Aha, Byrd ties it with an opposite field shot, into the wind no less. Go figure.

I concede, he's been more clutch than usual this year

 

still have a bad feeling about this game, but the Mets have showed some late innings comeback ability

 

Who knew this team would hit so many home runs

And Pena is on base. Again. A double. Bunted over. Parnell coming in, which is a great call by TC, even if it doesn't work.

According to Alderson, Collins job is safe for 2013

 

http://metsblog.com/...ns-job-is-safe/

 

I'm fine with that...he seems like a manager that's "just there" rather than a real difference maker...but I've seen far worse. And to be fair to Terry he's never had a full deck to work with. Would be interested to see how he does with a team that has even slightly above average talent, he's never had that with the mets.

Parnell gets out of it. GREAT call by TC going to him and great job of execution in a hell of a spot by Parnell!

Valdespin in the middle again: draws a 2-out walk vs Walden, steals 2nd, and then comes home on a Tejada single!

Lol at Uggla facing familia. He was like a frightened child looking at those curves.

 

This is THE BEST most improbable win I've ever seen at Turner Field. WE NEVER go into Atlanta and win games like this.

 

This is a good Braves team. But with no Cox or Jones, not the same bastards that hexed us for years.

TC deserves HUGE props in this game. Made an excellent strategy call going to Parnell when the game was on the line and then another brilliant move in the 10th: Valdespin drew a 2-out walk and he sent Parnell to bat. Goal was to have Valdespin steal 2nd on the first pitch; if he made it, you pinch-hit for Parnell, worst case is you're down 0-1 with one of your best contact hitters at the plate (Baxter). If Valdespin is thrown out, you have your best reliever/closer pitching the bottom half of the inning.

The one thing that can gum up that strategy is that a thinking-man's manager will know that's your strategy and call for pick-offs and a pitch-out.

So glad I decided to go to this one. I'll be wearing my Mets cap around Atlanta tomorrow.

DAVID WRIGHT COMES THROUGH! TIE GAME!

CAPTAIN CLUTCH off the best relief pitcher in baseball!

 

He came through this time, but I won't be thinking of him as "clutch" anytime soon.

 

He's off to a terrific start though...that can't be denied.  And he's doing it under the pressure of pretty big money to boot. 

 

They actually have a shot to take two out of three in this house of horrors...that's a major feat.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

#30 FOREVER!

Game postponed tonight, no makeup date announced so no doubleheader tomorrow, it appears. Niese vs Hudson, Harvey will open the series vs the White Sox.

In the meantime, enjoy this:
