NY Sports Dog: May Was One Wacky Month

May Was One Wacky Month

I love this team--love them. May is one of those reasons why.

It featured the best month of May in team history, an embarrassing sweep at the hands of the Dodgers, a 5-1 homestand, the worst lineup since 1979, a couple of trades, the debut of a 20-year old superstar of the future, and a team that fought their way through a devastating amount of injuries to stay near the top of the NL East standings.

Some May performances:

  • The Mets had winning streaks of 8, 4 and 3 and a losing streak of 4
  • David Wright hit .378 for the month--strangest .378 ever
  • Carlos Beltran hit .323 with 17 RBIs...last year he hit .306 with 19 RBIs in May
  • Carlos Delgado went to the DL on May 11th
  • Fernando Martinez had his first big league hit on Saturday
  • Frankie Rodriguez was 10 for 10 in save opportunities with a 0.00 ERA (Pitcher of the Month!)
  • Pedro Feliciano went 2-0 with a 1.42 ERA for the month in 15 appearances, and held the opposition to a .188 batting average
  • Johan Santana went 4-1 with a 2.43 ERA
  • Livan Hernandez went 3-0 with a 2.70 ERA
  • John Maine went 3-1 with a 3.30 ERA
  • Ramon Castro was traded
A wacky month....and a great one!

Thanks to my daughter for the picture...she snapped it on Saturday in front of Citi Field.
