The Mets have announced that RHP Nelson Figueroa and reliever Jorge Sosa have been designated for assignment. Claudio Vargas has been called up from New Orleans and reliever Matt Wise has been activated from the Disabled List. They have also placed outfielder Angel Pagan on the 15-day disabled list with an injured shoulder and called up Fernando Tatis who was tearing it up in New Orleans. Maybe it was a fear of public fan backlash… Maybe it [...]
Yet another Monday has come and followed a weekend series where the Mets have taken 2 out of 3 games from an opponent and as a result I have a little more spring in my step today. It was nice to see Carlos Beltran have a good day, he certainly was due for one. Maybe the pink bats and equipment the Mets used should be the unofficial new colors this season… that is, if they can continue to hit [...]
"It’s just a spring clean for the May queen. Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run There’s still time to change the road you’re on. And it makes me wonder." With apologies to Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, I have to disagree because I am a little alarmed. The Mets really do have two paths they can go down… and it does makes me wonder… Path One – [...]
I love this game! There’s nothing else like it… Yesterday one of our regular readers pointed me to a fact that has gone widely unnoticed by many Mets fans. He told me that the only two Mets batting over .300 were Ryan Church and Brian Schneider. That’s right… the two players we got in the much maligned Lastings Milledge trade were the top two hitters on the Mets. Sorry for ever doubting you Omar, can [...]
Willie Randolph has an appointment with destiny at the end of the month regarding his job security. The owners will meet with Omar Minaya and I assume Willie Randolph, to evaluate the team’s performance as well as Willie. <begin humming Taps> Like the majority of fans, I like Willie a lot. I think he’s accomplished many great things for the Mets in the short time that he has been here. Unfortunately though, he has rustled [...]
Welcome back to another addition of Hot and Not. The Mets have shown great strides towards improvement, but they had good numbers against Brad Penny to begin with. Hopefully, they’ll sweep this doubleheader and they get the confidence they need. Who’s HotMoises Alou: Okay, so he’s only played in a couple of games. And he may need time to get his swagger back. But the man is certainly making up for lost time. Any 41-year-old who [...]
The most predominant question in my mind has been if the Mets have the fire within them to succeed. For whatever reason, to me, it seems like the Mets of September have simply just carried over into 2008. They’re not playing with the same zest and enthusiasm that they played with in 2006 and most of 2007. Obviously, the Mets do have a fire and a passion. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t even be playing [...]
I know some of my fellow bloggers already mentioned this, but it bears repeating: One day the Mets can’t hit their way out of a paper bag, the next day they can break through a ton of bricks! Keep in mind that since I was at work today, I did not see the game. I only know the details because of Andrew V’s recap and a few highlights from my mom, who was fortunate enough [...]
Ahh the smell of green grass, beautiful palm trees, tropical drinks and sushi… that is what baseball is all about. At least it is in Los Angeles. (freaking wierdos!) Our New York Mets are in a virtual paradise, far away from the hostile crowds and boo birds they must deal with at home games. Ahh… this is the life. Rest and relaxation… Rest and relaxation my ass! Get on that damn field and start swinging that lumber and [...]
