There are no words right now that can give me or you any comfort or peace. After all, what can you say about a team that literally had it all and yet gave it all away? What do you say about a team that had so much talent and not enough heart? Over the next few weeks I will analyze this once promising season, one game and one player at a time. I’ve held back these last few weeks [...]
Carlos Delgado sustained a broken right hand early in the game when he was hit by a Dontrelle Willis pitch. Adam Rubin reports… The Mets suffered another blow in the first inning when Carlos Delgado suffered a broken left hand when he was struck by Dontrelle Willis with a first-inning pitch. This was later confirmed by John Delcos… Confirmed: Fractured left hand. See you in Port St. Lucie. Other News: Jose Reyes has been showered [...]
In a surprsing move, the Comissioners Offfice acted quickly and suspended Miguel Olivo for five games for instigating the benches clearing brawl during yesterday’s Mets win. No Mets players were fined or suspended for what took place before, during or after the brawl. Several Florida Marlins players admitted that today’s game had plenty of meaning for them and that the Mets picked the wrong team to pick a fight with. Hanley Ramirez on today’s game: [...]
What seemed improbable only 24 hours ago has become a reality for the New York Mets. Not only do they win in impressive style on the strength of a masterful pitching performance by John Maine, but with both the Phillies and the Padres both losing this evening, the Mets are back in the game! They once again are in control of their own destiny, and with a win tomorrow it ensures at the very least [...]
Many years ago, former Mets manager Yogi Berra coined the phrase that would become synonymous with late season heroics. Yogi Berra believed in 1973, just like the late, great Tug McGraw. With two games left in the season the Mets still have life. With a win today followed by a Phillies loss tonight, the Mets can get right back into the drivers seat. We’ve seen how good the Phillies can be when they were chasing first [...]
Willie Randolph could have started Pedro Martinez instead of Philip Humber on Wednesday. He chose not to so he could give Pedro an extra days rest. Pedro said that he was ready to go, but his words fell on deaf ears. Willie had already made up his mind and he was going with Humber. Just like he made up his mind last week when he went with Brian Lawrence. As a result of this decision, Philip Humber went [...]
Last night I had the most wonderful dream. I was back in New York and at Shea Stadium for the last game of the 2007 World Series. The Mets and Indians had played themselves into a 3- 3 series tie thanks to some late inning heroics by Guillermo Mota, who struck out the side in back to back innings in game 6. This game was no contest though, as the Mets cruised to a 12 [...]
Leaves are falling all around, It’s time I was on my way. Thanks to you, I’m much obliged for such a pleasant stay. But now it’s time for me to go. The autumn moon lights my way. For now I smell the rain, and with it pain, and it’s headed my way. Ah, some songs can really sum up the way I feel this morning. Deep down inside I have a feeling of impending doom [...]
I’m really trying my best to stay positive over the past month even though I have had plenty of good reasons to vent. Every time I see Rick Peterson make a call to the bullpen I can’t help being overcome with fear and anxiety. The bullpen has become so unreliable that even a 3 or 4 run lead has Mets fans wondering if the bullpen can close it out. Everyday it seems like they all [...]
