Postgame: Mets 5 at Phillies 6 (Game 2)

Today the Mets lost in 10 innings at Citizen’s Bank Park to the Phillies by a score of 6-5.

W- Jack Taschner (1-0)
L – Sean Green (0-2)
Box Score/Recap:

At the Plate:
  • Daniel Murphy was 1 for 2 with a home run.
  • Ramon Castro followed his home run with one of his own and was 2 for 3 but was taken out as Omir Santo pinch ran for him.
  • Carlos Delgado was a pinch hitter and walked so it doesn’t look like he will be going to the DL. After Delgado walked they had pitcher John Maine pinch run for him so he must really not be able to run the bases since they brought a pitcher in to run for him.
On the Mound:
  • Bad Ollie showed up and went only 2 and 1/3 innings before being taken out. Hre was his line: 
    O Perez 2.1 5 4 4 6 2 0 77-36 9.97

  • Ken Takahashi relived him and went 2 and 2/3 innings giving up no runs.
  • Pedro Feliciano then came in and blew the 5-4 lead when he gave up a solo homer to Raul Ibanez.
  • Bobby Parnell then pitched a very good inning and J.J. Putz then threw 2 good innings.
  • In the 10th the Mets brought in Sean Green who put runners on 1st and 2nd with on out. Then got a strikeout. Then a walk to load the bases. Then he went down in the count 2-1 to Shane Victorino. Got him to swing at one in the dirt to even up the count. Then he threw one way outside and then he blew the game, giving up ball 4 high with the bases loaded, so the Mets lose.
My Opinion:
I thought that we would get a good outing from Ollie but was wrong. Now he might be sent to the minors to work on stuff. If I was the Mets I would sent him to Bufffalo for 2 or 3 starts and tell him that you will come back if you pitch well in Buffalo. Clear your head and start winning games again.

Player of Game: Raul Ibanez for tying te game in the 6th with his homer. He was 2 for 4.
Met of Game: Ken Takahashi for keeping the Mets in the game when Ollie couldn’t pitch.
Up Next:
The rubber game will be tomorrow. John Maine vs. Joe Blanton at 1 PM. The Mets will try to win their first series finale this year.

Postgame: Mets 8 at Cardinals 12 (swept)

I will not be writing up a postgame report because I wasn’t able to watch most of the game and if was not a good game for the Mets. I will write this though:

  • Livan Hernandez gave up 5 runs in 5 innings of work.
  • Sean Green gave up 5 runs in 2 innings of work.
  • Anyone who thought that Livan has constituency was really wrong.
  • Livan is not a very good pitcher.
  • The Mets bullpen can’t be trusted other than Franky and Putz.
  • The Mets did almost rally to come back in the 8th but it wasn’t enough.

Daily Scouting Report: Billy Wagner

In my post today about Wagner, I said that Wagner was throwing today. The question is: How will he do and in what roll?

Wagner to Putz to Franky would probably be the best bullpen ever if Wagner does what he did early in his career.Coming off Tommy John Surgery means that he probably won’t do it but he has reasons to try:

  1. Wagner most likely won’t be with the team next year and wants to prove that he is good to other teams.
  2. (Hopefully more importantly) he wants to win a World Series.
Wagner is saying he will be back in late-July or early-August while the Mets are saying late-August at the earliest. This saying that don’t expect him back until at least mid-August if ever. My guess is that the team doesn’t want to rush him back. That makes sense if Putz and Franky perform like they should. If they don’t then the team probably will rush him back and he will get hurt again.

If or when he comes back, my guess is that he won’t do so well and the team will end up pitching Sean Green ahead of him in the 7th.

Postgame: Mets 2 at Reds 1 (Opening Day)

Today in Cincinnati, the Mets beat the Reds 2-1.

W – Johan Santana (1-0)
L – Aaron Harang (0-1)
S – Francisco Rodrigez (1)
Box Score/Recap
Presented from ESPN.
At the Plate:
  • Daniel Murphy hit a solo homer and then later drove in the 2nd run.
  • Ryan Church was 2 for 4 with a stolen base.
  • Carlos Delgado was 2 for 4 with a walk.
  • As a team the mets left 12 men on base. (not good)
On the Rubber:
  • Johan Santana went 5 2/3 innings giving up 3 hits, 1 run, struck out 7 but walked 4. He was removed after throwing 99 pitches.
  • Sean Green relived Johan and threw a perfect 1 1/3 innings.
  • J.J. Putz then pitched the 8th. He walked 11 and struck out 1.
  • K-Rod (but would like to be called Franky Rodrigez) pitched a perfect 9th, striking out 1 and earning his first save.
My Thoughts:
They won. That is the important thing. Johan walked too many but hopefully he will rebound. The team left wayyyyyyy too many runners on base.

Player of Game:
I am going to give the player of game to Daniel Murphy.
Up Next:
The Mets are off tomorrow and will play the Reds again on Wednesday with Pelfrey on the mound.
