Re: Has the Mets collapse begun again?


-- Mets are 1-4 since this thread was started.
-- Phillies are now in first place by half a game with 12 games left to play for the Mets
(one up in the win column)
-- Mets have a [sign in to see URL] year old rook with a [sign in to see URL] era starting on the mound today vs the Nats.


Remaining schedules:

Mets- 2 at Nats, 3 at Braves, 4 vs Cubs, 3 vs Marlins

Phillies- 2 at Braves, 3 vs Marlins, 3 vs Braves, 3 vs Nats

Note: Mets have backed into the WC lead due to the Brewers collapse.
(.5 game lead-- one less loss than the Brewers)
-- Houston also still has a chance for a WC spot, 3 games back with 12 to play
_________________________

and...

WASHINGTON -- The long list of disabled Mets became one name longer Tuesday night. Fernando Tatis was removed from the Mets' game against the Nationals and whatever other games the Mets may play this season. Beginning in the fifth inning, Tatis moved to the infirmary dugout alongside Moises Alou, Billy Wagner, John Maine, Orlando Hernandez, et al, his right shoulder separated, his season complete.
Tatis landed on the shoulder after he made an unsuccessful attempt to catch a sinking line drive that became the pivotal play in the Mets' 1-0 loss to the Nationals. He was escorted off the field by trainer Ray Ramirez and was to travel by train to New York on Wednesday morning, so the full extent of the injury could be determined.

Nick Evans and later Endy Chavez replaced Tatis in left field. The two of them and Daniel Murphy now will share the position with the two rookies, Evans and Murphy, starting most of the games.

"It's very discouraging," manager Jerry Manuel said. "He's been a big and solid piece of what we are and what we've accomplished."

Soon after he join the Mets in mid-May, Tatis, 33, became an important contributor. A third baseman by trade, he moved to the outfield -- he had started 28 games in left and 35 in right -- and provided some of the right-handed run production the Mets had hoped to get from Alou. He finished his first big league season since 2006 with a .297 average, a .484 slugging percentage, 11 home runs and 47 RBIs in 92 games (273 at-bats).

Re: Has the Mets collapse begun again?


perhaps I should have titled this thread "will the Brewers collapse continue?"
(they are 2-8 in the last ten games)

But anyway-

Mets and Phillies hold serve yesterday

-- Mets are now 3-4 since this thread was started.
-- Phillies are still in first place by half a game with 10 games left to play for the Mets, and 9 for the Phillies.
(Phillies are one up in the win column)
-- Mets have lefty Oliver Perez (10-7) on the mound vs lefty Jo-Jo Reyes (3-11) for the Braves tonight.
(who names their kid Jo-Jo?)


Remaining schedules:

Mets- 3 at Braves, 4 vs Cubs, 3 vs Marlins

Phillies- 3 vs Marlins, 3 vs Braves, 3 vs Nats

Note: Mets now have a 1.5 game lead over the Brewers in the WC standings- two less losses than the Brewers)
-- Houston now has almost no chance for a WC spot-- they are 5 games back with 10 to play
(tied with Florida)

It appears that both WC teams will come from the Eastern divisions.

Re: Has the Mets collapse begun again?


here is how the standings list looked after April ended:

Who fell the hardest since then?
Answer: Dbacks.
after a 20-8 start, they went 59-70
(with 5 games left to play)
and THAT is how the 14-13 Bums in April, could win the West after only going 6 games over .500 after April (68-62)
That's just pathetic.

Of the teams with losing records in April-
Who climbed the highest?
Answer: Toronto.
after an 11-17 start, they went 72-57
(with 5 games left to play)

Of the teams with winning records in April-
Who climbed the highest?
Answer: Rays
after a 15-12 start, they went 80-50

Note:
Giants more or less maintained their April pace all season long (averaged out on the overall)
An average of around 3 games under .500 for each month.
13-16 after April ended
57-71 since then.
(6 months at 3 games under .500 for each month = 18 games under .500 for the season.
The Giants are currently 17 games under .500 with 5 games left to play--- (70-87)

1 Texas Rangers 10-18 W1
2 Toronto Blue Jays 11-17 L2
3 Colorado Rockies 11-17 L1
4 San Diego Padres 11-17 W1

Re: Has the Mets collapse begun again?


Also of note, the Giants are 2 Games back for 3rd place with 5 to play.

Rox finish with three at Arizona, so the chance are high 3rd could happen. I mean, it's Livan Hernandez against Jon Sanchez tonight...

Re: Has the Mets collapse begun again?


Wed. 9/24--
Mets 5-8 since this thread was started
(They had a 3 game lead in the NL East at the time.)

Tonight:
-- Phillies lose
-- Mets lose in extras at home after stranding ten men on base in the last 5 innings, including stranding a runner on 3B in every inning from the 5th on out (except for the tenth, where they went down quietly)

In the bottom of the ninth, tied 5-5, the Mets had a leadoff triple, then loaded the bases and failed to scored.
(Wright K'd on ball 4 for the first out, then a FC at the plate for out number 2, then a final K on a ball out of the zone to end their chances.)
D Lee and Aramis Ramirez buried the Mets in the tenth with an RBi double, followed by a two run jack.

Phllies lead is still 1.5 games over the Mets

--Brewers win behind CC Sabathia who pitched on 3 days rest and tossed a gem

Remaining schedules:

89-70 Phillies (at home)--- 3 vs Nats
87-71 Mets (at home)----- 1 game vs Cubs, 3 vs Marlins

WC race-

87-71 (Mets at home)----- 1 game vs Cubs, 3 vs Marlins
87-71 Brewers (at home)--- 1 game vs Pirates, 3 games vs Cubs.

Note: Substantial Nor'Easter moving in on the East Coast.
Phillies have an off day tomorrow, but the Mets/ Cubs game may not be played.
