Prospect Pulse: Power Arms For The Mets Pen

There is no doubt that one of the weakest aspects of the 2012 Mets so far has been the bullpen. The Mets bullpen ERA is second to last in the National League at 5.04. Their bullpen’s WHIP is at 1.51, good for 14th place in the league. The Met bullpen this year is also fourth […]

Hits and Misses: Just Another Manic Monday

The Mets are 13-9 and if the season ended today, and I know it doesn’t, the Mets would be in the playoffs. The Marlins and Phillies on the other hand would be watching from home like you and me. Now onto the meaty stuff… During the Colorado series the Mets bullpen was charged with 17 […]

Doug’s Dugout: Comebacks, Palisades Park and a Hot Reuben Sandwich

In Doug’s Dugout today, we discuss comebacks, a Hot Reuben Sandwich, and other insipid thoughts: I will give the Mets kudos for not folding like a child’s tent in a wind storm, after Todd Helton (another Met killer) pinch-hit a grand slam off of Tim Byrdak in yesterday’s 8th inning.

3 Up & 3 Down: Rockin’ the Rockies Edition

The Mets win a three game weekend series against the Rockies, taking the rubber game 6-5 in eleven innings. This was a really strange series where we pretty much saw the unexpected. The Mets scored 9 runs on Friday night, only to see the Rocks score 18! One guy hit for the cycle, another hit […]
