Just When We Needed An Unsung Hero…

In Doug’s Dugout today, we talk about unsung heroes, dropping like flies, and other moronic thoughts: My primary thrust today was focusing on replacing Mike Pelfey’s innings (the Chris Schwinden experiment failed), but then Mike Nickeas and Jordany Valdespin had the audacity to interrupt me with last night’s heroics against the Phillies.

Pitching Is A National Treasure In Washington

It’s amazing what that Gio Gozalez trade has done for the Washington Nationals. A lot of those who squawked that the Nats gave up too much are eating crow these days. Damn, I wanted the Mets to go after him so bad last Winter. The Nationals were smart in locking him up to a five-year, $42 million dollar contract […]

Ask Petey: Where Will Nimmo, Marquez & Evans Play?

Need to know? Ask Petey  Another good question was just slid under my door, but when I checked, there was no one out in the hall except the neighbor’s cat. Could this have been sent by the Secret Service?….nah! It’s just a note in a badly soiled envelope with a barely legible name scribbled across […]

Travis Taijeron Named Player of the Week

Today, Mets outfield prospect Travis Taijeron was named the South Atlantic League’s Player of the Week.

Mets Minors: Who’s Hot, Who’s Hotter

One thing you will surely notice when reading this is that a few of these guys do not fit the standard definition of “prospect.” There are a handful of veteran players here who are having too good of a season to ignore. So I have stretched the classic definition of prospect to include minor league […]
