Mets-Cubs Series Recap (So Far)

Mets Rumors & News

With rain scheduled for the next four days, who knows when the Mets will play again. They had a golden opportunity to tie the Phillies in the loss column last night, but instead decided to take a fork and stab Mets fans in the eye with it. With the Phillies loss and the Brewers win, the Mets are now tied for the wild card lead and remain a game and a half behind Philadelphia. With the fourth game of the series no lock to be played, here’s what happened in the first three games.
Monday, Cubs 9-5: Nightmare at Shea
Ron Burgundy couldn’t have summed up Jon Niese’s troubles any better: “Boy, that escalated quickly…I mean, that really got out of hand.” Ok, maybe Niese isn’t ready for the big leagues yet. After pitching eight shutout innings in his last start, this one was a …

Yankees Rumors & News

Now that the stadium is closed it seems like some of the Yankees are finding it hard to get motivated to play baseball. First Hideki Matsui and now Andy Pettitte have shut their seasons down along with “The House That Ruth Built.”
Pettitte, who is normally a very strong second half pitcher, has struggled lately and has been complaining about a sore shoulder in recent weeks. Unlike Matsui he will not need surgery to repair anything, but he and the Yankees both thought that with the team eliminated from the playoffs there was no need to further tax his ailing shoulder.
“(The shoulder) has given me a little trouble,” Pettitte said. “I just wanted to go out and pitch, to do what it takes to get out there and pitch. Now that it’s over, now that we’re not going to the playoffs, there’s no sense in trying to do what it takes to go out there.”

Fortunately for them, the Mets failed to capitalize, falling to the Cubs. The Brewers continued to stay hot and look like a different team then the one that took the field during the first three weeks of September. As we approach the final weekend of the season, three teams are within two games of each other.

Recap of Wednesday’s Action:

Brett Myers followed a poor start at Florida, with another poor start last night. Myers had no command of his fastball and gave up six runs on ten hits, in four-and-a-third innings, as the Braves beat the Phillies 10-4. Chipper Jones’ three-run pinch hit home run in the fifth inning, iced the game for the Braves. Although the Phillies lost, it didn’t mean there weren’t any fireworks. In the eighth inning with the Braves leading 10-4, Shane Victorino …
