Ike’s Stock Is Soaring, While Emaus’ Is Tumbling

An article by posted on April 12, 2011 0 Comments

As the calendar turned from March to April, I mentioned that in addition to the staying healthy, the Mets would need key performances at second base and first base to give the offense an added boost. Two players who were on my watch list were Ike Davis and Brad Emaus. Davis because questions over his […]

Ram’s Rambles: I Hate Walks

I could say this a thousand times and I still won’t get tired of it. I love pitching. I think pitching wins ball games and you can put me at a 1-0 shutout victory over a 10-6 slugfest any day of the week. It’s a minority opinion, but real pitching is the combination of artistry […]

It has been almost 12 years in between pitches as a New York Met for Jason Isringhausen, but last night when he emerged from the bullpen and took the mound, he was one of the lone Mets relievers that got the job done against the Rockies. Isringhausen came into the game with two runners on and the […]

Mets Flash: Parnell Can’t Hold Lead, Pressure Is Mounting

Once again, the Mets bullpen could not hold a lead and they fell to the Rockies 7-6 tonight at Citi Field. This time the culprit was setup man Bobby Parnell who could be losing his grip on his role as a late inning reliever. Terry Collins was frustrated tonight and said he didn’t care how […]

Jon Heyman of SI.com, reports in his latest column that “there’s growing suspicion” that the Mets will try trade Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes, Francisco Rodriguez and Mike Pelfrey if they are not in contention before the July 31 trade deadline.

Alderson Uncovers A Gem In Chris Young

An article by posted on April 11, 2011 0 Comments

Lost in the ugliness of yesterday’s loss to the Nationals, was a brilliant performance by right-hander Chris Young who pitched a one-hitter through seven innings. Young, who also pitched for GM Sandy Alderson when both were with the San Diego Padres, tossed his second solid effort in a row, and has allowed just two earned […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 1)

It feels good to be doing this again – it means the season is in full swing and Mets baseball is starting to matter again. I refuse to be too pessimistic against anyone but Blaine Boyer this early in the season. The Mets have the potential to be a good team…probably not great, but we […]

3 Up, 3 Down: The Not So Happy Homecoming Edition

An article by posted on April 11, 2011 0 Comments

The Mets hosted the Washington Nationals for Opening Weekend at Citi Field. I’m not sure what the deal was with the 4:10 start on Friday afternoon, but at least the Mets did a classy thing by having Ralph Kiner toss out the first pitch. The Nationals took the series 2-1 thanks mostly to a horrible, […]

Isringhausen Comes Full Circle

It didn’t take long for GM Sandy Alderson to act after yesterdays debacle by the bullpen that cost starter Chris Young a well deserved win. For reliever Jason Isringhausen however, it was opportunity knocking as he replaces the ousted Blaine Boyer who was cut minutes dater his meltdown. “We need some innings,” Alderson said. “We’re […]
