Just thought I would share with you some of the things that really ticked me off while watching/listening to yesterday’s game… First off, the dumb idea that Ruben Gotay’s throwing error in Saturday’s game may have been caused by the fact that he now knows he is going to be the everyday second baseman, at least for a while, and his nerves got the best of him. Ron Darling actually bought that? Is he serious?? No matter who […]
I am diligently trying to remain positive. I am trying to see the glass half full, rather than half empty, but the truth is, sometimes I don’t even see the glass! How many scoring opportunities are the Mets going to waste? How many outs can they possibly make with runners in scoring position? How many Carloses are going to continue to disappoint??? This truly IS no joking matter. The Braves are breathing down our necks […]
You are probably saying, why Manny? Well, it’s just Manny being Manny. Last year when Manny Acta was the third base coach, he was aggressive, and he knew what he was doing. I’m not saying that Sandy Sr. isn’t doing his job correctly, it’s just he’s not as enthusiastic as Acta. Manny fires up the team with his energy. I haven’t heard anything about any coach trying to fire this team up. Better yet, I […]
I thought it would be fun this week to sort of “laundry list” the things that I like and dislike about our Mets. I hope you will find some of these items to be very interesting… LIKES: – Paul LoDuca batting second. Come on, Willie, you know he belongs there, why would you put him anywhere else? He is the only hitter patient enough to take pitches to let Jose Reyes do his thing on […]
Lastings Milledge: Mets Fans Finally Get A Homegrown Outfielder They Can Call Thier Own, But All They Want To Do Is Trade Him
He’s fast, he’s powerful, he can catch, he’s got a shotgun for an arm, and he can hit. Oh yeah, and one more thing… he’s got a whole lotta attitude. Of course I’m talking about our very own Lastings Milledge. I can’t remember another player who was surrounded with as much of a media spotlight even before getting a full season in the bigs. He has already gotten as much ink in this city this past year, as […]
I had planned to write a first half report card for the Mets today, but since there were already about two hundred of them out there from local newspapers, obscure magazines and other dubious Mets blogs, I said the heck with that. I would advise you to skip the newspapers and magazines, and check out the other Mets bloggers if you want a real fans point of view. Let me just say that John Maine, Billy Wagner, David Wright, […]
It’s been the same news for the American League for the past couple years. Pitch well, hit hard, win. That formula works for them every year they win, and it seems like they win every time they play. The All-Star Game isn’t just any interleague game; it’s like round one of the World Series, even though it’s not. The tagline for this year’s All-Star Game is, "..this game counts." In my opinion, it really does. […]
The Mets ended the traditional first half of the season at 48 and 39, slightly worse than they did last year at this time, when they had a record of 53 and 36. It’s only a difference of five more wins and three more losses. But if you think about, considering all the injuries, the “iffy” pitching and defense, and the average offense they have been displaying, the Mets are in a fairly decent position […]
Last night the Mets won in thrilling fashion as they beat the Astros 5-3 in a 17 inning marathon. The Mets started the game down 3-0 after the Astros took the lead scoring all their runs in the 4th inning off of Tom Glavine. Carlos Delgado then launched a 2-run shot in the fifth, and David Wright added a solo homer in the 7th to tie the game. The Mets blew opportunity after opportunity to […]
