Picture this…the eighth place hitter just doubled in the bottom of the ninth with one out and the game tied at two. Next batter? Not the pitcher. Not a pinch hitter. Not the man who took over the ninth spot in the order when he went in as part of a double switch. Simply, the ninth place hitter that day. What’s going on? It seems a designated hitter has been inserted into the lineup and [...]
I hate Mondays, but at least this one this one won’t be so bad because I have a Mets game to look forward to after work. And, might I add, that yesterday’s sweep was absolutely fantastic and that I loved the back page of Newsday this morning with the title "STRAIGHT A’S." ha ha As you all know Carlos Delgado didn’t play yesterday, but check this little tidbit out… Before the game, Delgado went to Willie Randolph [...]
I just had to share this article with you after I read it this morning. Kristie Ackert over at the Daily News really made me laugh with the opening paragraph to her column today. Too bad there isn’t time to change the Paul Lo Duca bobble head doll that will be given away today at Shea. If there were, the miniature version of the Mets’ hot-headed catcher could not only come with a removable mask, [...]
OK. So the Mets didn’t sweep the Yanks. They didn’t even take the series. But they didn’t get swept either. In fact, the season series is tied at three and the next time these two teams could face each other would be the World Series. Let me sum up this past weekend for those of you who couldn’t bare to watch for yourselves…our offense was mediocre. Our pitching was lacking. And our defense was, if nothing else, questionable. Even [...]
Sometimes I find it so hard to see the positives in the Mets season, thus far. I spend so much time looking at and thinking about the negatives, that I forget how many times the Mets have overcome adversity in the past. I was thinking about last year when the Mets lost Pedro Martinez and I thought, "oh my God, our season is over!" Of course I was wrong, our season was not over, and [...]
Mike Lupica severely lashed out at Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado in today’s Daily News. Here is just a little bit of what he had to say… Jose Reyes tried to be a star for his team, all the way to the top of the ninth, when he went up there righthanded against Mo Rivera and got the bases-loaded single that brought the Mets to within 11-8. But that was all the Mets had. Because [...]
These Mets don’t seem to have the fighting spirit… Sometimes you have to fight for what you really want… Sometimes, you have to do whatever it takes to get that R-E-S-P-E-C-T! That is the Mets biggest problem so far this season. They don’t have the stomach for a good old fashioned brawl. After the Dodgers hit their third straight homer, it was a perfect situation for throwing inside to Juan Pierre and letting the Dodgers [...]
Each week I will recap the Mets Minor Leagues and give you a rundown on their games, highlights, and any significant player news, injuries or promotions. It will be posted in two parts with the first part encompassing the high minors and the second part, the low minors. AAA – New Orleans Zephyrs (36-33) 6/11 – The Zephyrs had a tough time driving in runners as they fall to the Round Rock Express, 5-3. [...]
Last night was just another game that was too difficult to watch, and in fact I was overcome with sleep for the last inning. The Mets lost to the Dodgers 9-1, and the game was as ugly as the score would indicate. Just as they had in their previous five contests, the Mets jumped out with an early lead after scratching out a run in the first inning, and then failed to score again for [...]
