Joel Piniero always finds a way to pitch well vs the Mets, and he looks absolutely locked in to start with 6 groundouts to start... and then he hits a double to LF...

wow.

Well this is not good... they are playing fundamentally bad again to start.. first Livan botches an easy out and then Murphy cant make a solid throw. Whatever, we weren't probably winning this game anyway with Piniero on the mound.. just gotta hope for the best (its raining, maybe a rain out before the 5th inning reaches!!)

When is the last time the Mets played a home game without a drop of rain?

Murphy has been decent at 1st but he has to know his limitations. Take the sure out.

Typical stupid move by Jerry Manuel that will probably cost this team the game.

possibly...but with the way Cy Pineiro is pitching I doubt we could've gotten Castillo home. This is unreal domination.

I just dont like that move though.. nobody out, top of the order coming up with 2 guys who can grind out at bats (Cora, Murphy).. Livan is a good bunter so he would have easily gotten Luis to 2nd..

hit and run with a position player, i wouldn't mind it.. but with the pitcher, i just dont like it, no matter how "good" Livan is with the bat.

I am convinced Citi Field is just not for the Mets... luckiest bloop double you will ever see :rolleyes: .. st louis a fly ball away from a victory with the way pineiro pitching

who the hell's voice is that? its ron/keith/gary and there is like a muffled voice in the background... when Warthen went out to talk to Livan the muffled voice said, "what could he possibly tell him here?" .. i guess its just a fan that mic is catching..

ugh pujols, 3-0 cards... good night. better luck tomorrow.

Well the game was over at 1-0, kind of classless that the Cardinals had to pile on and make it 3-0.

Tatis really needs to be benched or shot or something. He can't be allowed to hit into a trillion double plays anymore.

The sad part is you could c/p this post during just about every game (that and another GIDP for Tatis). I never thought I'd say this but Jerry makes Willie look like a braniac.

And I love how they never do anything against Piniero, battered lineup or no battered lineup. I still shudder at the 8 IP, 3 H shutout in late '07. This is his third straight dominant start against us since then iirc.

Since that grand slam against Atlanta...Tatis is something like 12 for his last 73. Get him out of the major leagues already.

of course they won't since he can play a zillion positions, still he can't hit at all.

nice inning from Dessens at least. I wonder if the Mets can get a 2nd hit today.

i like tatis so i dont want them to just dump him, but he cant start so many games.. at least let evans, who was swinging a hot bat in AA, get a few starts if you wanna give Sheffield rest..

wow pineiro's pitch count is like in the 60's, he will easily throw a CG ... just a matter of whether it will be a shutout or not.

i dont know what is with the mets not hitting him.. hes had a solid year but has given up quite a bit more hits than IP.

wow isn't funny how easy dessens made those 6 outs look? yet some guys tend to make 1-2 outs look very difficult.

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.

tonight's lineup:
Cora, ss
Castillo, 2b
Wright, 3b
Church, rf
Tatis, lf
Martinez, cf
Evans, 1b
Schneider, c
Nieve, rhp


-Sheffield's knee is bothering him supposedly.. nice to see Evans get his 1 start this year.. lets all hope Nieve can shutdown another tough team.. but most of all, lets hope we try and get more than a couple of hits tonight :rolleyes:

-Other news: Mets DFA lefty Jon Switzer and are likely to call up utility infielder Argenis Reyes (remember him?) .. Argenis is hitting .296/.389/.395 in 45 games for AAA-Buffalo this year... notable splits - vs RHP Argenis is hitting .316/.403/.402, vs LHP hes only hitting .229/.341/.371 .. i doubt that will be a big factor since Reyes might not get many starts, but whenever he does, it would be wise to give some at bats vs RHP.
