Great Scott

* Mets walk-off loss #375 (postseason included) was their second in the last three days and fourth this season. It is the second time this season that they've lost a game on a walk-off home run.

* The four losses match the Mets walk-off total for all of 2007.

* It is the first time that the Padres got two walk-off wins against the Mets in a season since 1995.

* The Mets have 25 walk-off losses against the Padres. Seven of them have been by a 2-1 score.

* It marked the first time in Pedro Feliciano's career that he gave up a walk-off hit.

Walk-Off HR vs Mets
Padres History

2008 Scott Hairston
1995 Brian Johnson
1989 Chris James
1986 Tony Gwynn
1979 Jerry Turner

* Scott Hairston now has 3 walk-off home runs, all of which have come since August 3, 2007, all for the Padres. In fact, Hairston also had the go-ahead extra-inning home run for the Padres in their one-game playoff against the Rockies last season, only to have that wiped out when the Rockies rallied to win the game.

* The only other Scott with a walk-off hit against the Mets also had his for the Padres: Scott Livingstone, who beat the Mets 2-1 with a walk-off single on September 4, 1995.

True Mettiversarys know...Since the first posting on this blog (June 8, 2005), the Mets walk-off record is 28-19.

The best Mets ejections I know

When you think of the Mets and famous ejections, I'm guessing you first think of the famous Bobby Valentine mustache game, when after Valentine got tossed, he returned to the dugout in disguise. You know it. You love it. I remember being amused when I asked Bobby V about it while we were working on Baseball Tonight, how he simply said "It worked. We won the game." (true) But the Bobby V mustache game of June 9, 1999 is one of many, many memorable Mets ejection stories. And now thanks to Retrosheet and the magic of , we have a convenient means for being able to share them.

Without further ado (and with more work to do), here are some of my findings
