    Mets vs Phils at Citi Field

    despite all the drama surrounding the team, they continue to play well-

    Takahashi has pitched really well....he mixes a 91 mph fastball with some low 60's junk, & batters definately haven't figured him out yet.

    let's get over .500 tonight with a W!

    Was at the game last nigh and had a great time. Was really impressed by the clutch hits and strikeouts.

    There was about 30-40 Philly fans seated under the Pepsi porch that were really loud and boisterous in the fist two innings but their true colors showed once their team was down a few runs and you didn't hear a peep out of them for the rest of the night.

    Saw a nice gesture during batting practice though. Joe Blanton hit a flare that cracked an older fellow who had his back turned right in the head. He dropped like a sack of potatoes and after bp was over Blanton came over and gave the guy a bat. Pretty cool reward for getting beaned.

    Given Dickey's history, I don't want to get too excited, but he's really pitched well for us.

    True, he did seem to get pretty lucky that Philly couldnt buy a big hit last night. Seemed the bases were juiced in 4 of the 6 innings.

    Takahashi hasn't given up a run as a starter yet and he faced the Yanks and the Phils.


    Could the Mets have actually have found a gem?

    It would be wrong if Manuel loses his job in the near future. Plain wrong

    There is no straight face smiley face. This team has not quit. Manuel is not to blame

    I disagree.

    For a manager to get fired this early in the season his team has to be playing sub .350ish ball.

    And the Mets are not doing that.
