5/21 – Trivia

Rubber Duck Trivia

Yesterday’s trivia goes to Canuck of The Watercooler for knowing that the july 4th game of 1985 ended at 3:55 AM on July 5th.  He moves into a 2nd place tie with Diamond Diva. Also I am now deleting in-active blogs from the standings.

Today’s Question: 7 Points

On May 17th, 2002, the Mets turned the 9th Triple Play in club history vs the San Diego Padres. Who was the Padre batter when this took place?

♣ First one to post a comment with the correct answer wins. Please leave a link to your blog so I can post your link as a winner.

Reyes, Peavy and Ollie

The Mets today announced that Jose Reyes is day to day after getting tendentious in is calf yesterday. As Noble Thoughts said, you never know what the Mets are hiding and Reyes could actually be really badly hurt.

Also today the Padres made a deal with the Chicago White Sox  for Jake Peavy but Peavy waived his no trade claus saying that he wants to stay in the National league on a team playing in Central United States.
In other news Oliver Perez pitched a game in extended spring training today. He went 5 innings but I have not been able to find out his line. Brian Schnieder caught Perez today.

Postgame: Padres 6 at Mets 5 (Home Opener)

Last night the Mets lost to the Padres by a score of 5-4 in the first regular season game at Citi Field.

W- Edward Mujica (1-0)
L – Brian Stokes (0-1)
S – Heath Bell (4)
Box Score/Recap

At the Plate:
  • In the 5th inning, David Wright hit a very clutch 3 run homer for his 1st of the year.
  • Delgado, Church and Schnieder were the only ones not to get a hit.
In the Field:
  • Ryan Church dropped a fly ball in the 5th inning to lead to a run scoring.
On the Mound:
  • Mike Pelfrey struggled in the first inning but then settled down and went 5 (88 pitches).
  • After David Wright’s game tying home run, Pedro Feliciano balked in a run and there was no more scoring after that.
  • The Mets were hitless off Duaner Sanchez and Heath Bell.
The Stadium:
  • It still needs more concession stands. The lines are crazy.
  • The apple is much bigger when Wright hit that home run.
  • It is definitely a pitcher’s park. Maybe even more so then Shea.
  • If you are going then don’t enter in the rotunda. Security is way to high there and it is much better if you enter in the left or right field entrance.
Player of Game:
The Player of game goes to Jody Gerit for hitting the first ever home run at Citi Field.
The Met of game goes to David Wright bringing the team back in the 5th.
Up Next:
Off today then tomorrow night at Citi Field against the Padres, 7:10.
