Carlos Beltran went 2 for 4 with a 2 run homer to put the Mets of the board.
Jason Bay hit 2 homers today, one solo and one 3-run shot.
Mike Pelfrey pitched 6 scoreless innings and allowed 5 hits, walking 2, and striking out 2.
It is so strange how well Pelf pitches with Paulino behind the plate. He is a different looking guy. He throws inside and is so much more confident when Paulino catches him.
Who would have thought that all of the Mets offense today would be all from home runs. Kind of funny thinking how the ball doesn’t carry in LA at night and the Mets can barely hit a homer every 2 games.
Today was so good for Jason Bay. He pulled one homer and hit the other one to the opposite field. This really showed that he could be coming around as a hitter for the Mets…hopefully.
Angel Pagan went 4 for 6 with 4 RBI including 2 doubles.
Daniel Murphy drove in 4 runs on 2 clutch 2 run singles with the bases loaded and 2 outs.
Jason Bay went 1 for 2 with 4 walks and an RBI single.
Wow…that is all I can say, WOW.
This team is doing everything right. They are working the count and just hitting line drives. This team is so clutch getting endless hits with 2 outs and RISP. This is the most I have enjoyed watching this team in a long time.
Pagan is starting to get some hits off of left handed pitchers, that is great for him to start getting hot.
Cap was good tonight, his only blemish was 2 Miguel Cabrera homers.
The Mets were 10-17 with 2 outs tonight, that is a huge number.
Mike Pelfrey was awful today posting a line of 2 innings, 8 hits, 7 runs (6 earned), 1 walk and 1 strikeout.
Blane Boyer pitched 2 innings and gave up 3 runs.
Buchholz, Beato, and K-Rod pitched a scoreless inning each.
Ike Davis went 2 for 4 with 2RBI.
Angel Pagan also had 2 hits including a 2 run homer.
Emaus and Reyes had 2 hits each.
Wright went 1 for 5 with 3K’s
I’m sorta torn on this game, Pelfrey was awful and I loved the comeback. But after, they couldn’t score again.
Pelfrey simply looked awful in his outing tonight. He was fooling nobody.
I love how the Mets fought back against the Phillies tonight because it showed even in a big deficit, they can still fight back and make it a game. They don’t quit. Last year this would have been a blowout.
The offense has looked great today with everybody contributing.
Well, it’s over, the 2010 season is done. It seems like it went by so quickly going from David Wright’s first inning homer opening day, to the call up of Ike Davis, to R.A. Dickey and Jon Niese’s one hitter, to Beltrans return, and finally to Oliver Perez pitching the last inning of 2010. ALOT happened this year and it seems like it just went by so quickly. It’s sad. Anyway, part 1 of the season review is all about the offense as a whole. Baseball is a team sport, individual evaluations will be saved for the player by player evaluations.
The pinch-hitting was great this year whether it was Chris Carter, Josh Thole, Mike Hessman, or Jesus Feliciano someone always seemed to get the job done.
The Mets led the league in stolen bases this year which means they are the running team that they had to be in order to be successful.
Many players turned it on late in the year including Carlos Beltran, David Wright, Josh Thole, and Ike Davis.
The Mets had 4 walk off homers this year Rod Barajas, Henry Blanco, Ike Davis, and Josh Thole all hit them. The Mets were the first team ever to have 3 catchers hit walk off homers in a season.
The Mets used the triples alley in their park to rack up a ton of triples from Pagan and Reyes.
The Mets had more players hit more homers and more players have higher RBI totals.
The Mets were the worst team with the bases loaded this year hitting 0 grand slams and hitting around .200 all together.
The Mets had too many players who struck out, don’t get me wrong they aren’t the Diamondbacks, but they were wild swingers who struck out too much and didn’t walk enough.
The lineup was never the same, it seems that they could never find out who would be a good cleanup hitter. Carlos Beltran, Chris Carter, David Wright, Ike Davis, Jason Bay plus others all hit cleanup this year.
No Met hit over .300 this year.
No Met had over 30 homers this year.
Offensive Grade for the Year: C….Needs ALOT of improvement
Nobody on the Mets is hitting right now. No one really has hit since the all-star break. We have people who can carry our offense. If Wright, Beltran, or Davis get hot, they can carry the ball club. Reyes also needs to hit consistently in order for this team to be succesful. None of this is happening. Wright and Davis are in a slump, and Beltran hasn’t found a groove since his return. Reyes has been somewhat consistent in his offense, but that is it. The Mets need to find a way to score runs or the future does not look bright.
