Mets Rumors & News

In a game that only took two hours and 18 minutes to play. The Mets defeated the Phillies by a score of 3-1. They are now alone in first place for the first time since April 19th. The Mets are 9-4 against Philadelphia this season, and have won all four series against them.
Jamie Moyer and Oliver Perez were a contrast in styles, but each pitched a classic. There hasn’t been a Mets-Phillies pitcher’s duel like this since 1971, when Tom Seaver took on Jamie Moyer. Perez dazzled, only allowing one run (a Jason Werth solo shot) in 7.2 innings pitched, while striking out 12 with one walk (and one HBP). In his last five starts, he’s only given up five earned runs. Werth’s homer ended Perez’s 24.1 inning scoreless streak against Philadelphia. The ageless, classy Moyer also tossed a gem, by going seven innings, with one earned run, six K’s, …

Jets Rumors & News

Earlier this week the New York Jets signed cornerback, Ahmad “Batman” Carroll. The Green Bay Packers selected the former Arkansas standout in the first round (25th overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft. As a Razorback he was All-SEC in 2001 and 2003 and was a star sprinter on the track team. The 5’10” corner was the first player ever that Green Bay drafted out of Arkansas in the first round. However, he recorded only 3 interceptions in his three seasons (34 games) with the Pack and his poor performance against Greg Lewis of the Philadelphia Eagles led to his release. Lewis burned him for two touchdowns and caused three defensive penalties in week 4 of the 2006 season.
This past season, Carroll played for the Orlando Predators in the AFL after being waived by the Jacksonville Jaguars in May. He was arrested on weapon and drug chargers which led to his release. Carroll started …

Mets Rumors & News

Welcome back, Billy Wagner. There were no ninth-inning meltdowns, fireworks or ulcers in last night’s game. The Mets shrugged off Tuesday’s loss by defeating the Phillies, 6-3, so routinely it seemed like an old Seattle Pilots–Washington Senators matchup. They’re back in a tie for first place, and have an 8-4 record against the Phillies so far this season.
Jose Reyes had the big blast, hitting a three-run homer (his 11th of the season) off Ryan Madson in the sixth, breaking a 3-3 tie. The Mets scored two runs in the first when Brett Myers walked four batters in a row and Marlon Anderson grounded out to drive in a run. They added a run in the third on a Damion Easley infield single (Easley had three infield hits, after getting hit by two pitches the night before―he’s due to get struck by lightning today). Carlos Delgado (two walks, HBP, single) moved up …
