So here we are fellow Mets fans. Almost halfway through the month and the Mets are languishing in fourth place behind everybody but the Nats and 2 games under .500. Like me, I’m certain most of you envisioned better days than this for the Amazins’ in 2008. Omar took care of the Mets most glaring need in Johan Santana and still it was not enough. Perhaps the collapse will not be so easily removed from […]
With the Mets recent slide this weekend in San Diego, I feel it’s now or never with this ballclub making the postseason. The 2008 New York Mets are currently 30-32, again under five hundred and 7.5 games behind the surging Phillies. With Pedro Martinez returning this past week, the Mets were supposed to have found their savior in the rotation to take the pressure off Santana, however it seems once again the offense has hit another slump and […]
Round 1 – Pick 18 – IKE DAVIS, 1B/OF, Arizona State Baseball America: The son of former big league reliever Ron Davis, Ike was not a scouts’ favorite coming into his junior season. A decorated high school career that included a star turn with Team USA’s youth national squad and an MVP award at the 2004 Aflac Classic, and his pitching family pedigree, had most scouts regarding him as a pitcher out of high school. He […]
During his unprecedented run of pennants and World Championships as manager of the Yankees in the 1950′s, Casey Stengel was quoted as saying, "I don’t get paid to win every game. I get paid to win two out of every three games." It seems as if this does not hold true for our current manager. Willie Randolph has been placed in a tenuous no-win situation this season, thanks in part to the players on the […]
Welcome Mets fans to another installment of Hot or Not. The Mets looked as if they were on their way back against San Fransisco, but they have since taken a few steps back against the Padres. They’ve only scored two runs in their last 23 innings, with Scott Schoeneweis and Johan Santana charged with losses. But I still have to pick somebody to be Hot and I have to pick somebody to be Not. Hot […]
Thanks to a walk-off hit by pitch charged to Scott Schoeneweis, the Mets fell to the Padres 2-1. The game’s starter, Mike Pelfrey had pitched six solid innings of baseball, only allowing one run. Was it the best start of Pelfrey’s career? No. Did he keep his team in the game? Yes. Did he get the job done? In my opinion, yes. Pelfrey’s 2-6 record does not represent the kind of pitcher he is at all. His […]
He was selected in the third round of the 1997 First-Year Player Draft. Christopher Louis Aguila graduated from McQueen High School (NV) in 1997. While in McQueen, he set the single-season home run record. Although. Aguila may not be a prospect, he is showing signs he belongs with the big club. The 29-year-old outfielder played for the Marlins from 2004-2006 and the Pirates minor leagues in 2007. The Mets signed him in March has been […]
The Mets have been on a West Coast diet for the past week facing up with Torre and the Dodgers at Shea and Bochy’s Botching Giants in San Francisco. It appears as though the Mets enjoy West Coast flavors because they look as if they’re playing hungry. In the past week, the Mets have gone 5-2. The team ERA is 4.94 over the past week (inflated in large part to Oliver Perez’s “outing” which earned […]
Seeing the Marlins occupying the top spot in the N.L. East the last few weeks hasn’t really bothered me all that much so far this season. However, for one very brief day I saw the Phillies in first place last week and I was seeing red… Not Phillies red…. There was blood in my eyes… I still haven’t gotten over them taking the division away from us last season, and while I can respect the […]
