In what has become a long battle between two pitchers who have failed to take a convincing lead, Mike Pelfrey and Orlando Hernandez now face their last chance to make a lasting impression. In one corner you have youth, and in the other corner you have experience. The problem is that Pelfrey’s youth seems a little too raw for a team who has their eyes on a division title, while El Duque’s experience seems to be a [...]
Hard to believe but Spring Training is almost through and the season is slowly creeping up on us… I can’t wait! I feel like I used to as a child on Christmas Eve, when anticipation and anxiety were at their peaks. I think we can expect good things from the Mets performance this year, unlike that unwrapped present from Grandma on Christmas morning which to quote Jeff Foxworthy,” You may not know what’s in it [...]
It was mid January; it had proved to be a disastrous off-season for the Mets. Following the well documented and highly criticized collapse of September, the teams most prominent need appeared it would again go unaddressed for a second consecutive off-season. Than, the 29th day on the 2008 calendar emerged, and it became a day in which the Mets starting rotation was instantly altered from being their chief enigma to arguably the most stout in [...]
Now that Spring Training is in "full bloom", I thought it would be fun to take a look at the differences between the game that our beloved Metsies play versus the other three major sports – football, basketball and hockey.

After what seemed like an eternity battling kidney stones, I finally got some time to actually sit down and blog a little bit about my Mets. The last time I sat in front of my computer, the Mets were on the verge of acquiring Johan Santana, and I was so overjoyed to see that we finally got our man. With Johan in the fold it means we finally have a bona-fide stopper and it allows [...]
Okay, so it was bound to happen….Moises Alou got hurt. We all knew it was gonna happen. Okay, so maybe Omar didn’t know when he picked up Alou’s option, but that’s beside the point. Brian Schneider has a tight hammie. Ryan Church and Marlon Anderson collided, with Church still experiencing symtoms of his Grade 2 concussion. Luis Castillo is recovering from double knee surgery. Allegedly, so is Carlos Beltran, but I think it’s because Johan [...]
