We’re talking Mets’ collapse and Moose’s quest for win #20. Keep it goin’ here.
i kinda feel sad for the met fans…………………..Nottt !
Of course the story tomorrow will still be about the Yankee’s failures this year.
Oh no you didn’t.
Doesn’t Jeff Baker look like Chad Moeller, kind of?
yea he does…
so is phil coke strictly a reliever from this point on? i thought he was a started in the low minors to start this season.
id keep coke as a reliever
I believe he’ll be given an opportunity to start. Failing that, he’s already showing himself to be a capable reliever.
Agree completely. He’s more valuable if he can be a good starter, but if not, it looks like he’ll be a strong part of the pen going forward.
He started in AA this year. Might as well try him as a starter, then they can move him back if they have too.
So, if the Mets lose… We’re looking at Brewers-Phils and Dodgers-Cubs, right?
I believe so.
Gotta love the Piniella-Torre angle.
yes we are
Go Torre’s, i mean Dodgers!!!!
Where have ya’ been lately AL. i thought you bailed on us
Nah man just my local baseball park started their fall season so ive been busy umping left and right. Had a game today but made sure to be back home to watch end of the baseball games today.
Awesome dude. so you can be our Umping analyst lol.
Mike we dont always see eye to eye but thats the good thing about bullshitting over sports. However i MUST tip my cap to you for this “We’re talking Mets’ collapse and Moose’s quest for win #20. Keep it goin’ here” particularly the mets collapse part lmao
Someone asked in the last thread re: who’s closing. Michael Kay has said Mo is available to close today. Whether they actually use him is another question.
Damaso marte probably right? or wait. no, it cant be mo didnt they shut him down with pettite?
it might of been talked bout already but idk cuz i jus got here but apparently cash told hal he wants back which is a good thing.. i found it on realgm
I have a feeling that if the Mets don’t make the playoffs, the media would still kill the Yanks more than the Mets and the media would be complete Met apologists.
I can’t understand, for the life of me, why this matters to you.
A little bit.
Is it really necessary to ragg on the man. Ivan never bothers anyone. hes just making a very fair point.
I didn’t rag on him. I appreciate that Ivan is a big Yankees fan and that he comments here a lot. I happen to think he’d be better off if he’d just be above the tabloid media, as opposed to being bothered by it, because I think he’s better than that and shouldn’t worry about what a bunch of hacks write in a less-than-respectable paper. I didn’t insult him, and don’t appreciate you insinuating that I did.
No its just how you over exaggerated with the “for the life of me” comment. i can see you grabbing your chest while you are saying that.
Not really, no.
Just like met fans. when i go into school tmrw offering lozenges and tissues to all the met fans they will wag their obnoxious fingers in my face over the yankees not making it either.
Yikes. Is everyone in here in high school? lol
ChiSox won. So if Minny wins (they’re leading 2-0 in the 8th), then Chicago will have to win their rain makeup with the Tigers tomorrow to force a 1 game playoff on Tuesday.
Don’t they have to win that next game regardless the Twins lose or not?
Right, but if the Twins lose today and Chicago wins tomorrow, there’s no need for a playoff on Tuesday.
wright chavez and easley uhoh ……..
alright lets start making some predictions for the mets’ half of the 9th.
i say they bring the tying run into scoring position with 1 out and then pop out/strike out to end it.
too bad beltran wount come up in likely hood. i would like to see his knees buckle like in the 2006 NLCS against the cards lmao
Wait, did Kay really just say Miranda is in to tighten up the defense??? Hahahah!
Let’s go Joba.
Is everything ok with Mo? With all of the spurious reports going around, I’ve lost track of whether Mo has shoulder problems or not.
All I remember is the Yankee beat writers getting on Girardi for “lying” about Mo’s injury.
Short version on Mo:
He’s been pitching all season with a sore shoulder. He’s got calcification and bone chips that either need to be removed surgically or he can try to rehab it. He hasn’t made a decision yet. He asked Girardi not to tell the reporters cuz he wanted to do it himself. Hence the “lying” fiasco.
Ah… and has anyone apologized to Girardi about this. I can’t stand how those a-holes got on girardi’s case on that post game show.
i might feel a lil bad
How somber will it be to celebrate the stadium after a loss?
You gotta be kidding me. Moose must be shitting bricks in the clubhouse….
MEH, joba will strike out the rest of the side. without allowing a run. or wait, are they taking him out?
WOW. Joba is out already….
David Wright is so clutch.
A-Rod could learn a thing or two from Wright when it comes to being CLUTCH.
one out away.
Clutchy McClutch Clutch.
Hope nothing is physically wrong with Joba.
How was his velocity?
And Coke was 95 on the same gun.
Damian Easley = the last hope?
Someone might need to give Cohen a tissue after the game.
Is it wrong that my current concerns are:
1. Is Joba ok?
2. Will Moose get #20.
3. Why are my Bills sucking so bad in StL?
4. Have the Brewers killed C.C. leaving no pitching options on the market?
154. Will the Mets choke again?
Does that make me less of a Yankee fan?
“Grand ol’ ballpark”??? I think not, Gary.
Typical Yankee hating Met fan.
Bruney clutchhh. keep it goin baby.
Heh, Gary Cohen used the term “grand” in reference to Shea Stadium.
ha! i heard that too, had to rewind it to make sure i wasn’t hallucinating.
He fuckin walked Easley.
church 2 run shot ?
and then you woke up right?
shea would explode.
Ouch. How depressing for Mets fans.
And the Mets’ season is OVER. That’s…almost sad.
Heh, the Mets.
… The who?
Ha Ha Ha Bitches, Welcome to the Party.
Im tellin you, if the Marlins had made Lindstrom closer alot sooner than they did they couldve been right there with the Mets and Brewers.
Good bye Mets. Looks like there won’t be an october for either NY team.
Last game of the season, two years in a row. Wow.
On a sunday, by a lefty pitcher, via the marlins. cant get much better than that. lozenge anyone?
Yeah, shocking considering Manuel is Manager of the Year and Delgado’s the MVP.
Willie Randolph sits back, takes a nice long drag off his cigar and nice taste of whiskey. Chillin’.
As Jerry Manuel would say, that’s gangsta.
Enjoy a couple more years with the Big O, Mets.
I guess those bitches at wfan need to have a funeral for 2 teams… MUAHHAHAHAHAHAAHA
Francesa is gonna have a field day tmrw.
they are gonna spend $$$$$ on relief help nex year
So Mike, How badly are you kicking my ass in fantasy?
52.70 to 42.90. You still have Baltimore’s D going tomorrow, but I have Mendenhall and Heap set for tomorrow as well.
Considering I dont have a QB, not bad.
Yeah same here. I had to start Tyler Thigpen at QB, and he rode the bench all day.
oh then never mind haha. LT better make shit happen.
Do y’all think the Marlins are milking the moment a lil bit? With all the protracted hugging on the field?
Mmm, nothing like watching a little Joe Girardi trying too hard. Who’s he gonna send out for the ninth, Phil Hughes?
give the guy a break he wants to get Moose his 20th win.
Girardi gets a break from nobody until he turns 65 and does some Bigelow Green Tea commercials.
And the funny thing is, the yanks might have more wins than the Mets.
Wow I though Mo was shut down.
Well, Mo did rise on the seventh day once before.
Mo warming up.
Oh shit, the hammer of God is warming up.
you think the mets might trade beltran for something ? get some new faces in there or something.. i dont think they could trade wright or reyes but i could see them moving beltran but i doubt it
Considering he did nothing wrong what leads you to that conclusion? he provided their only offense today, had a silently good season. Ive been saying this for a while now, hes their number 2 hitter.
welll im just saying would they get rid of some of the faces in the clubhouse.. i figure they would rather trade carlos than david or jose..
Heh, the Mets scored five runs in their final twenty-six innings.
Ok this really isnt funny. Mo has got to save it for moose.
How typical of this season would it be if the Yanks blow this game for Moose……
Eh, Yanks and Sawkz, why not making it just the least bit exciting?
Have you noticed Marte ALWAYS causes Mariano to have 4 out saves? ALWAYS.
Yanks just can’t close this game out.
If they tie this up, I wonder if Girardi would use Moose in relief in Game 2 if it’s tied late to try and get him a vulture W.
That’s a very interesting thought.
But lets hope it doesnt get to that.
Doubt Moose would try to get a win that way. Plus physically im sure it would be near impossible for him to pitch in Game 2, if there even is one with the weather.
I was thinking about that myself, but didn’t want to mention it unless absolutely necessary, and still don’t want to talk about it.
This is a tough spot for Mo.
Mo doesnt know “tough spots”
come on, mo!
molina guns down ellsbury to end the inning…
Uggla hit the last home run at Shea, right?
jeez, pedroia. that ball was already in the glove when the bat came around.
Blow em away MO.
like shooting fish in a barrel.
Fuck yeah, Mo!
OMG were’s the grit Pedroia?
the stage was set with the rain coming down and everything. imagine if he got a hit, sportscenter would’ve wet their pants to show pedroia getting a huge hit against mo in the rain!!
Mo just Smoked that litte Viena Sausage.
Imagine how good Mo wouldve been this season with a healthy right arm….
Thank Mo for Mo.
Ladies and Gentlemen, your American League Most Valuable Player.
MVP-type strikeout right there.
Minny’s up 6-0 with Joe Nathan on the mound with 2 outs left to go.
Cano Hit a Homer.
That will do.
Let’s get an insurance run here. Please.
What a way to close out Shea….LOL
Cano looks so much better at the plate with the new stance and not constantly being off-balance like before with his open stance.
No, it’s the benching. Nothing to do with what actually would make him hit better. It’s always the intangibles, always.
He’s going to work on his grit in the offseason too. No weights, no swinging that bat, just pure grit training. MVP next year.
Jerry Manuel is kewl beans, I hope he doesn’t get the axe for this. Then again, I felt the same way about Willie Randolph.
Cano’s new stance is working.
Uh oh. Varitek is out of the game, how will Papelbon ever decide what pitches to throw?
Let’s get some runs for Moose, here, Yanks.
O-VER-RA-TED clap cap clapclapclap
I don’t know which was better, that or hearing Tim McCarver cry like a man-bitch when the crowd was doing it.
That was pretty epic when they announced his name during the Allstar Game and “Mar-i-a-no” chants started
Or, Papelcunt. you choose.
Perfect hit and run.
Hey Papelbon, only sac-flies and dribblers beat you, eh?
Oh make sure you tell him, hit and runs and base hits up the middle do as well.
Is it just me or does Papelbon always look like he’s getting ready to give someone a bj…
just too keep with the trend…papelcocksucker
lmfao! papel cocksucker. i said papelcunt or papeldouche. not papelcocksucker lol but i like that.
Personally i always thought his lips look like an anus when he sets.
Does he look like he’s getting ready to give someone a bj, or is he actually getting ready to give someone a bj?
We’ve already established that Ellsbury is the girl/bitch of the team.
Let’s see how long before Anus Face throws anything other than a fastball.
Like the first commandment said, Thou Shal not worship any images or Gods before me or try to be God Papelbon.
lol, and immediately, a changeup
The Panda strikes again.
Molina helping out Da Moose! Insurance runs FTW!
The ‘Skins are setting up for an upset.
Lots of surprising scores today.
My brother picked Chiefs over Denver(which was stupid but he was right), Skins over Cowboys and Bears over Eagles in our Football pick em league.
Good job gardner. Aim for his legs.
Brett Gardner makes shit happen. Another hit off Papelbon.
I know it’s small peanuts but, if K-Rod wins that award for best reliever, that would be a travesty.
How many BS does he have this year? 6 or 7?
Brett Gardner: Red Sox killer
I just realized how bitter I am about this Yankee season. I can’t stop laughing when I think about the Met collapses of the last two seasons…
At least I don’t have to hear it from my Met-fan friends this off-season as I thought I was going to have to…
Dallas’ secondary blows.
you can pour the rosin on your arm with a cement truck papelbon, you just suck today.
I want to see Mo close it out.
But I prefer to see them score 5 runs off Papelbon so Mo doesn’t have to close it out.
It would be funny when Mo steps on the mound the rain stops.
Who do you think is making it rain in the first place.
Papelbon sucks in rain. Take note.
Good point wasn’t it raining when A-Rod hit that HR of him last year ?
When Coco flipped over the wall? I think so.
Yeah, I think so too.
Seriously, when was the last time there was a rain delay in Anaheim?
Their not in Anaheim. Their in LA. Of Anaheim.
Man, All Papelbon has is a fastball.
The Chargers suck.
Melky grand slam, here it comes.
If Melky hits a GS……….
Melky. Can’t we pinch hit for him with something? Meachem? Gene Moynihan? John Sterling? Anyone?
billy crystal work?
anyone else think this is a stall tactic? i bet mo touches the rosin bag once.
Paps a loser.
Wow, Melky laying off the high heater.
A run is a run.
This Papelbon appearance is not going the way they were hoping it would go.
Hey mike, how long has this site been in operation?
Since February 2007. In the very first post I said the Yanks had a better chance of drafting Jesus Christ than Andrew Brackman.
Lmao. that is a good one
didnt he pitch yesterday?
It seems that Moose will get his 20th win.
Boy I tell ya yanks have played good baseball in spetember.
Ha I was just going to say the same thing. There are people who don’t take kindly to talking about September as if it counts.
Well he’s at least not sweating as much as he was last inning.
Heh, T.O. just juked himself to the ground, dummy.
a-rod OWNS papelbon!
Arod does that way to much. Can he not get it out of the infield?
You are questioning whether the future HR king can get the ball out of the infield?
Turn up the sarcasm radar, there, Steve H.
It’s tough. There are plenty of A-Rod haters here who probably shook their head in agreement when they read it.
Miranda hit a Homer.
Wow, the Mets’ ceremony is so unoriginal and bad. So very, very bad.
Come on give them a break isn’t what happen today enough.
Have some mercy.
Gee why doesnt someone deliver papalbitch an expresso? then he can continue taking his sweet time
Is anyone else watching the Shea ceremony? I’m confused… Are they just announcing random people who aren’t even there today?
Papelbon has now throw 31 pitches. Yikes.
32 pitches. Yikes-ier.
Moose is 3 outs away.
Michael Kay: “I wonder if that [drying] agent works like other agents, just soaking up 5%.”
Heh, I actually liked that one.
The cop should have tasered Papelbon.
LMAO did the rain stop?!
Oh it did.
wasnt it you who said mo is the 1 who made it rain in the first place? cliche much lol
I can honestly say there’s noone in baseball I enjoy seeing fail more than old Anus Face.
i always liked seeing schilling loose when he did.
and youkilis too. i hate that cocksucker. him, when he threw that tantrum with slamming the bat like a little boy was great
Yup, the rain’s stopping.
Also, Papelbon is a little bitch.
Don’t get mad Papelbon.
get glad =)
Boy the Fenway infield sucks.
OK, Cody, let’s not create a de novo save situation, shall we?
jonathon papelbon is such a shit-eating whore. how in the world does he have any fans?
Giselle, take your pills. Yikes.
sorry, i just really hate him!
lol I know, just a funny moment of hatred there.
That was awesome… a Mets old-timer is walking in from the outfield with a camerman in front of him and he says “you want me to walk slow or you want me to run?” Guy was like 65 years old.
I hope he broke his toe. Thats like carlos Quentin x 10.
Nah. I’d rather he is 100% healthy and continues to have outings like today’s in the playoffs.
Of course if he did break his toe, ESPN wouldn’t give him shit about it, they’d just call him a warrior, showing his grit and heart.
I love that Papelbon is going to be heading into the playoffs with a bad taste in his mouth.
yea and its of the yankees semen. owch. that was a bit much
ha. bit much? probably, but fucking hilarious.
Yeah some things are better off not held back congrats moosey
His bad outings come in Bunches, Hope this is the start of a long stretch of bad outings.
Solid play A-Rod.
Their fallin like flies.
LMAO, my dad. He said ” If baseball didn’t exist, Youkilis would be chopping lumber in Maine”
Actually, he’s a Jewish kid from a good family in Cincinatti.
Do the Teufel Shuffle!
Congratulations, Mike Mussina.
Great job MO!
I love it. KAY: in mussinas first three starts he was 1-3
Moose a 20 game winner. Congradulation Mussina.
First guy to congradulate him is Phil Hughes, pretty cool.
That was followed by an awkward hug with Carl Pavano.
Lmfao. Even tho you bashed me for years, Nice feat moosey
Go Moose. In his last 2 games he got a roaring ovation at the Stadium, then his 20th win.
September 28th, The Metropolitans choke for the 2nd year in a row. and Mike Mussina picks up number 20. God bless him!
The quest for 90 continues.
Dude I’ve been watching the Mets ceremonies… Are they going to play the second game? Have they announced a start-time?
Yea and I’m chuckling watching them cry after that loss.
At least they’re having fun with the ceremonies. That ’86 team is a freaking awesome group of guys to bring back for an event like this.
yea a bunch of crack addicts.
i think 270 wins in the a.l. east = hall of fame
Absolutely. And it very well could be 270 and counting.
I hope he goes for 300.
20 wins !!!!!
Not bad for an old, broken down, toast, who was to be replaced mid-season and become a long man, a dead moose pitcher.
Yogi Berra is in the Mets’ ceremonies.
HAHA… So Yogi walks out, and the next guy they announce is Hernandez. He’s standing in the door in the outfield wall, leaning against the wall like a freaking ass, like he’s being all seductive. He’s like “I’m Keith Hernandez.” Perfect.
Just think, if Girardi had benched Cano earlier, Mussina could have won 30.
very true. then he’d only be 20 away from 300
girardi better treat him to a box of crispy creams
So moose wins twenty, so that means they get what? lets look back it was like candy after 10 soda after 15 ect.. so now is it beer and cigs?
moose is great. solid season and made this game count for something.
as far as tonight’s game, i might check in. i’m def watching the family guy season premiere instead. screw ponson.
Word. I’m expecting Spring Training lineups tonight, for both teams. Would be nice to sweep them though, get to 90 wins.
yanks win the night cap, they finish with a better record than the mets
Hey fun Fact:
The Top three winners in the AL have each 20+ wins, and neither of their teams are in the playoffs. And if you include Webb it’s four. Kinda interesting.
And to think that people still believes pitching wins.
“It would have been better if we would have won today, but I don’t think it spoils the celebration,” general manager Omar Minaya said.
Are you kidding me does this go under the dumb ass statement department?
