That was one of the worst innings Maine has ever thrown.

I guess Met chatterers are resting up before the playoffs as well.
   3. Banta Posted: September 23, 2006 at 06:45 PM (#2186062)
Well, it's been a long season.
   4. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: September 23, 2006 at 06:56 PM (#2186067)
Endy is really having a fantastic season.

What a shot. It's about time.
   6. Banta Posted: September 23, 2006 at 06:59 PM (#2186069)
I was wondering how much longer Wright would let us talk #### about him.
   7. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: September 23, 2006 at 07:04 PM (#2186073)
Nice to see the Mets show some life againsts a lefty.
   8. Banta Posted: September 23, 2006 at 07:19 PM (#2186087)
Not that it should be surprising to anyone, but Trachsel seems certain that he's starting.
   9. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: September 23, 2006 at 07:33 PM (#2186095)
Reyes has two walks putting him at 49 on the season. One more and he validates OFF's prediction.

Well, I was out doing some birthday shopping. Back just in time to see Soriano go all Piazza on Mota.
   11. Banta Posted: September 23, 2006 at 07:40 PM (#2186101)
I think I want the Mets to sign Soriano if possible. Sure, he'll be overpaid, but he's a massive talent. The people who expect him to fall off a cliff next year are a bit insane, in my opinion.
   12. Sam M. Posted: September 23, 2006 at 07:42 PM (#2186103)
Geez, life is good. Mets have the best record in the league. Louisville avoided the trap game today, really dominating K-State. Wright went deep. The new guy is taking me out for my birthday tonight, and after a month we're going great.

The only real question is . . . when exactly is the meteorite going to fall from the sky and blast me to smithereens??? ;-)
   13. Sam M. Posted: September 23, 2006 at 07:47 PM (#2186109)
Zimmerman's quick in the field, isn't he? Couldn't get that throw on the bag, but he was so quick to get rid of it. He'll be a Gold Glover.
   14. Sam M. Posted: September 23, 2006 at 07:53 PM (#2186113)
That gives Wright 92 runs on the year. I guess it's unlikely he'll get to 100, but not impossible if he plays most of the rest of the games. He just missed last year (99).
   15. Sam M. Posted: September 23, 2006 at 07:59 PM (#2186117)
And THAT puts Jose (Jose, Jose, Jose!!!) back at an even .300 on the season. I REALLY want him to him to finish above .300.

By the way, David Wright right now? Coming into the game today, compare his 2005 and his 2006 season stats:

.306/.388/.523
.307/.380/.523

That's pretty freaky. His down second half has pretty much resulted in a Xerox copy of 2005.
   16. Dudefella Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:12 PM (#2186120)
awww hell.
   17. Raskolnikov Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:19 PM (#2186124)
How does the 1Bman break a leg on the play? Can someone explain?
   18. Raskolnikov Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:22 PM (#2186125)

The last FA who was described in such a way was Carlos Beltran. And we all know how that signing turned out ...
   19. Dudefella Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:24 PM (#2186126)
Looks like when he and Kearns collided, their knees hit.
   20. Raskolnikov Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:30 PM (#2186128)
Lastings Milledge has arrived.
   21. Sam M. Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:31 PM (#2186129)
OK, what happened to allow David Wright to triple on a pop up to Vidro??? My Fox affiliate has gone haywire, so the game is temporarily off . . . .

"

Did I miss a fight???
   23. Sam M. Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:38 PM (#2186133)

No, but Soriano sure kicked his ass . . . .
   24. Raskolnikov Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:40 PM (#2186134)
Soriano has become a more refined hitter, as demonstrated by that Wagner AB. (Yet another shameless plug pleading Omar to pursue him in the offseason.)
   25. Raskolnikov Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:42 PM (#2186137)
Ballgame!
   26. Sam M. Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:45 PM (#2186139)
Unfortunately, we still have to win 7 of our last 8 to get to 100 wins. Looking like it's gonna be tough. But we will be the only NL team to get into the 90s, anyway.
   27. Dudefella Posted: September 23, 2006 at 08:53 PM (#2186145)
Still no word on Johnson. damn.
   28. AJMcCringleberry Posted: September 23, 2006 at 11:23 PM (#2186217)
I missed the offensive explosion, thanks a lot FOX. Reyes is easily one of the top 10 players in the NL, but I get the feeling he won't do well in MVP voting.

I think I want the Mets to sign Soriano if possible. Sure, he'll be overpaid, but he's a massive talent. The people who expect him to fall off a cliff next year are a bit insane, in my opinion.

IMO, the people who think he'll be this good again are insane.

He doesn't have to be "this good again" to be very, very good.
