Moyer on the Mound for Rubber Match

Today’s line-up is strikingly similar to a regular weekday line-up.  If the team gets killed then we lose the Sunday Line-Up excuse.

Fowler has been moved back to hitting second and Nelson is back in the line-up.

Scutaro
Fowler
Gonzalez
Tulowitzki
Cuddyer
Giambi
Hernandez
Nelson
Moyer

it is a very un-sunday like lineup! If we win by 1,000 runs then we have something to complain about for sure 🙂

Scutaro warming up a bit. Fowler also showing signs of life. Nelson has been rested the last couple of days due to a minor injury. So only Giambi is in as a sub.

Thankyou Jim Tracy!

We look badly over matched today. Game over.

the early deficit certainly didn’t help. this team feeds off momentum. if a pitcher comes out and eats it I think its really rare for the offense to perform. Friday was a nice exception. Not gonna happen against an Allstar like Santana.

Am I doing something wrong? The last few days every time I click on chat it says Event is on Standby.

Nice play Jason.

I can’t believe people are doing the wave in a tie game with Betancourt pitching.

Epic fail. That Mets fan behind the plate looks and sounds like he’s starting to feel the booze.

It’s tough to win when you give the other team 19 hits and 4 walks. Too bad they wasted so much LoDo Magic.

It’s sad. There’s nothing special about this year’s team. I just find it hard to see us putting together a winning streak. Perhaps .500 ball throughout… maybe.

consistently inconsistent. I’m marginally surprised that we are near .500.

If they find that consistency this team might be pretty good.

This series though will be a strain on the pen. I was looking for 6-3 in this series but now I will be happy with 5-4 or even 4-5.

We’re certainly not going to go anywhere with Moyer. He should be on the Padres or Royals. Not in our rotation if we are serious about contending. Too many weak links to this club.

Anyone notice it? Seems like half of the Mets ‘ base hits have been slow bouncing balls up the middle and I kept saying move Tulo or Scutaro and have them positioned right at the bag.

Find some pitching damn it!!!!!!!!!!Oh,I forgot that’s what we were rumored to have done over the winter.Moyer still kept us in the game,and he is our # 5 starter so I think its unfair to expect more than 6 innings and .500 win pct.Which is what he has been doing.Anyone notice Jason Hammel’s early push for the American League Cy Young award?

For the series that’s 22 runs, 52 hits, and 9 walks allowed by Rockies pitching.
Or in other words, in 29 innings the Mets had on average 2 guys touch base every inning.

It’s a miracle we had a chance to win the series, but only Todd and CarGo stepped up yesterday and delivered.

These Rockies can’t lose series to bad teams at home!!! Good teams dominate in their house! I just can’t figure this team out!! It seems like they have much more talent then past years…..

This team is much like past seasons. They have a really great, exciting game. Gets everyone thinking … ok …. this is good … now they are headed in the right direction … followed by 3 games that leave you scratching your head.

I’m already sick of sitting thru cold, windy, wet games.

I do plan on keeping my ticket stub from Fri night.

You don’t think this team has more grit and fight than last year?

I think this team is easily better than last year. They have some toughness and ability to fight. The problem is still the inconsistency.

I’m not saying this team is going to win 90 games, however, this team at least makes it interesting late.

Last year’s team would go 1,2,3 in both the 8th and 9th.

Sure, in general I do agree with you and so far I think Cuddyer has been a pretty good upgrade but I see more sloppy play this season than the past few seasons. I still see inconsistent or even lack of hitting and the same thing I always seem to complain about … inconsistent pitching even though I think this starting rotation could be decent.

Sorry about no post-game write-up last night, I kept trying to make time to write it (even have cool pix thanks to Rox Addict), but just didn’t get it done!!!
