You Are What Your 2-3-4 Starters Say You Are

An article by posted on March 31, 2010 0 Comments

Let me tell you one thing: All this blather that the games don’t count, and it’s still only spring training, the wind is the reason balls are flying into the stratosphere, etc, etc, is beyond worrisome. It’s downright frightful-and not a figment of Mets’ fans imagination. The Mets pitching stinks and the only one who […]

We’re just five days from the start of Opening Day.  We Mets fans have had to endure a lot of anguish these past few seasons, and so far nothing has given us significant indication that 2010 will be a successful season.  In fact, the injuries are continuing to mount, and the rotation still has a […]

With the news that Murphy will miss some time due to injury, the one thing I can ask for is the organization to not rush the development of Ike Davis. The plan for Davis after his impressive spring was for him to be sent down and get some seasoning at the minor league level. With […]

2010 National League Projections

An article by posted on March 31, 2010 0 Comments

Last year, my predictions were way off – at least as far as New York Met predictions.  Almost every Met spent part of the year on the disabled list, and we all know the disaster that followed.  This year, instead of making predictions, I will make “projections”.  I am no Nostradamus, so I will leave […]
