The first half of the season is over, thankfully. And as we get back to the second half of the season, I hope we can look forward to continuing to enjoy watching New York Mets Baseball. The past two weeks have been exciting. The Mets have been playing the type of baseball we all hoped they could. I never would have guessed it earlier in the season. All too often in the first half of [...]
Some called last night’s All Star marathon a great game and an exciting game… whatever… For me it was a star-studded bore… So what else is new for National League fans who have been waiting 12 years for a win. Of course, as fate would have it, a New York Met figured prominently in the game’s outcome; Billy Wagner. What other expletives can I use to describe Wagner’s performance that I haven’t used a thousand times [...]
If some of you are waiting to see what players the Mets might be targeting at the trade deadline, don’t hold your breath. According to Joel Sherman of the NY Post, Omar Minaya has no master plan to fill the left field or bullpen vacancy via a trade. Instead, Omar feels the Mets can fill any needs by promoting from within. Sherman gives three great reasons for why Omar may be reluctant to pull off another big trade. [...]
This week I begin the first part of a new feature. I hope everyone enjoys reading it as much as I enjoyed researching it. JULY 14: 1916: Ernie Koob of the Cleveland Indians pitches a complete game, going all 17 innings, in a 0-0 tie with Boston 1934: Lou Gehrig plays shortstop and bats lead-off. After singling in his first AB, Gehrig is removed. He is ill but the Yankees do this so The Iron [...]
Following a spectacular win at Shea last night, Mike Pelfrey has been named "NL Player of the Week." Pelfrey has amazed everyone with his confidence and control. The 24-year-old went 2-0 while not allowing a run over his two starts against the San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies during the week ending July 13th. Over his 15 shutout innings, Pelfrey scattered nine hits without a walk, while striking out 10. He is the first Met [...]
The New York Mets find themselves just a half game behind their rival Philadelphia Phillies. The Mets, who have won nine straight, as well as their fans, are probably wishing that somehow, some way, this mid-summer classic was an end-of-the-season classic, so as not to break this team’s unbelievable momentum. Nine in a row is no joke. They are doing everything right and it is paying off. Our starting pitching is un-hittable. And our offense [...]
Fernando Martinez, or F-Mart as he is now called, represented the Mets in yesterday’s MLB Future’s Game. He played centerfield and went 1-2 at the plate. Martinez was not having a spectacular season, and in fact he has missed a lot of time due to injures, but in 218 at-bats for the B-Mets this season, he was batting .294 with four homeruns, 12 doubles, 32 runs and 21 RBI’s. At only 19 years old, F-Mart is the prized [...]
Where would the Mets be this past few weeks without new pitching coach Dan Warthen? It seems in just a short amount of time that he has brought this year’s pitching staff back to life and has really jump-started Mike Pelfrey. Since taking over for Rick Peterson last month, Warthen has corrected Oliver Perez’s inconsistency, dramatically changed Pelfrey’s performance, solved Pedro hat-tipping his pitches and even changed Johan Santana’s delivery to make him even more effective. During [...]
The date was October 19, 2002. 44,603 screaming fans packed Edison Field in Anaheim to witness Game One of the World Series. Giants Center Fielder Kenny Lofton walked to the batters box and dug in against Angels starter Jarrod Washburn. On October 1, 1903, almost a full century earlier, a less impressive crowd of 16,242 filled the Huntington Avenue Baseball Grounds in Boston to watch the Boston Americans take on the Pittsburgh Pirates in the [...]
