Greg Dobbs’ single with two outs in the ninth inning scored Emilio Bonifacio from second base with the winning run Friday, and the Miami Marlins rallied to end the New York Mets’ five-game winning streak with a 6-5 victory.
On Thursday afternoon, #MetsAreBetterThan was trending nationwide, and it elicited a wide range of comments. Here were some of the responses.
Just two short months ago, all we heard was how the Mets were destined to fail. To be honest, that seems like an eternity ago.
The Mets may need to find a stand-in for Jose Reyes’ full-time replacement.
New York lost 18-9 to the Colorado Rockies on Friday night, done in by six errors and an 11-run inning by the Rockies that overwhelmed the offensive display by Scott Hairston, who hit for the cycle.
Justin Turner drew a bases-loaded walk in a sensational 13-pitch at-bat and Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit an RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning as the Mets rallied past Heath Bell and Miami, 3-2, on Thursday.
David Wright hit a two-run homer to become the Mets’ career RBIs leader, R.A. Dickey outpitched Mark Buehrle in a crafty duel Wednesday night and New York beat the Miami Marlins 5-1.
Mets fans were planning to lament Jose Reyes’ arrival at Citi Field in a Marlins uniform. But they all missed the point — they should’ve been grateful Santana was wearing the blue and orange.
The announced attendance was 20,192, the smallest of the season at Citi Field. But those Mets fans in the stands Tuesday night sure could make some noise.
Jerry Recco’s first update of the morning got going with some news and notes from the Mets, who welcomed Jose Reyes back to Citi Field.
Jose Reyes went hitless in his return to Citi Field and Lucas Duda lined a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning that caromed off reliever Edward Mujica, sending the New York Mets to a 2-1 victory over the Florida Marlins on Tuesday night.
Though some fans may be upset with the idea of honoring a now-division rival, Mets third baseman David Wright thinks Jose Reyes should get a good hand from the Flushing faithful.
Reyes appeared in 999 games at shortstop for the Mets, second only to Bud Harrelson (1,280) for the most in club history.
It has the look and feel of a debacle. In other words, it is something that only the Mets could come up with.
For a short while there, and in the end it could prove out as a VERY short while, the Mets could share a laugh over the Yankees’ starting rotation.
