From Left Field: Mets Have Knack For Making No-Name Pitchers Look Great

So Steve Carlton picked up the win last night for the Philadelphia Phillies… Actually, it was rookie Vance Worley, throwing a Carlton-like game, who picked up the win. During their history, the Mets always seem to have a knack for losing to no-name pitchers. Granted, Worley is on fire right now, but there’s no reason […]

Last night when I saw Lucas Duda’s numbers up on the board I began to think about what he could realistically finish with.  He has not been up here for that long, but is already closing in on double digit home runs and is nearing 40 RBI. As I was thinking about this I began to wonder where he […]

Lately I’ve been tied up with the Mets at the Court, not the Mets on the field. Neither stick to a timetable, but the on-the-field Mets certainly win their part – and of course there are all the updated readings to consider in the Court case. With the Mets team, all I need to make […]

Jonathon Niese had possibly his worst outing of the season, and the Mets offense could not figured out Phillies starter Vance Worley yet again in their 9-4 loss. Game Notes Jonathon Niese only made it into the fifth, but was completely ineffective today. Niese allowed eight runs on ten hits, walking one and striking out […]

Wait’ll 2014?

I ran into an article by Will Leitch of New York Magazine in which he continues his series entitled “Fixing the Mets”.

Your Best? Losers Always Whine About Their Best.

In the Jerry Bruckheimer film, ‘The Rock,’ John Patrick Mason turned to Stanley Goodspeed and uttered a classic movie line: “Your best? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and get a World Series ring.” No…wait, that wasn’t it. But this website is suitable for all ages. (I pause now so we can […]

Mets Get Mugged In Philly 10-0, Wright Is On The Skids Again

The Mets got clobbered by the Philadelphia Phillies 10-0 tonight in what I would call was the ugliest loss of the season by far. They have now gone 5-16 in their last 21 games and are in their worst strecth since their 5-13 start to begin the season. They are in a deep funk and continue to slide deeper […]
