Post Game: Yankees 5, Mets 3

The Mets (39-29) lost to the Yankees (42-26) by the score of 5-3 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium.

The Mets eight game winning streak has come to an end, and their record is now 7-1 on their road trip.

For a full recap and box score, check out here.

The Least You Should Know:

  • Mike Pelfrey started for the Mets today, and he struggled from the very beginning, allowing a run in the first and a pair of two run home runs in the third and fourth innings – one by Mark Teixeira which tied the game at 3-3, and then a Curtis Granderson blast which gave the Yankees the 5-3 lead.
  • Pelfrey did go seven innings, but allowed all five runs on seven hits.
  • Jose Reyes hit a leadoff home run and a two run home run against Phil Hughes in the third, who started off poorly but settled down nicely to go seven innings for his tenth victory of the year.

…well, you can’t win ’em all i suppose…

…pelf’s problem was he had trouble getting that sinker down consistently, and he was centering a lot of pitches, and against that team in that ballpark, nobody can afford to do that…

Reyes continues to swing a hot bat, and all of a sudden, he is hitting for more power, which is yet another great sign…he’s going on all cylinders, and its great to see…

Up Next:

The Mets will go for the series victory tomorrow afternoon at Yankee Stadium, with Johan Santana facing CC Sabathia. Game time is at 1:05 pm.


He can be a quality backup. I don't think the giants will go through with it, but it wouldn't be the worst decision in the world.


As someone who watches the Jets, Why in gods name are the Giants interested in Sanchez?

Can they improve him? Possibly, but that would involve giving him playing time.

Aside from Sanchez's inacuracy and mistiming, he doesn't see the field.  He looks for the dump off, and throws picks and fumbles worse than Eli did last year,

They wont get much for Nassib.


Trade Nassib for a choice draft pick and invite Sanchize to camp.

I never hated Sanchez, he seemed to be as good as the players they put in front of him. 

When the Jets had receivers and OL and a running game they went deep into the playoffs, when he had none of those he looked awful, kind of like a poor-man's Eli when Eli is at his worst.  Last year Eli had a bad year due to NO protection, receivers who didn't do their homework and no running game, sooooo I think Sanchez in a good team in a good system is pretty serviceable, not the dog Jets fans make him out to be.   Then again he is is hurt thanks to Marvin Austen's hit on him (just before Austen was cut by us) 

So perhaps he'd look better as a target in Eagle Green


The jets went deep into the playoffs in spite of him. He was the weakest link on that team. Their defense was the best in the league and their offense had a solid oline and a good run game. He is a game manager, and not even a great one. No, he isn't as terrible as most make him out to be - but I still wouldn't want him. Could he come in and win a game or two if Eli got hurt? Sure. But I would rather go with the cheaper potential unknown in Nassib.
