Before yesterdays outing against the Detroit Tigers, Mets fans alike were seeing a healthy Johan Santana coming back strong and healthy. His stats from his first two outings were telling us that things were going well and maybe we might soon see the Santana of old (calm, cool, and dominant). In his first two starts of the spring, Santana had a 0.00 ERA with 2 K’s, and a WHIP of 1.07 in a combined 4.2 [...]
MLB Trade Rumors reported yesterday that its likely that Chris Young will return to the Mets for the 2012 season. Despite pitching in only 6 games, Young was on track to have a great season. Before tearing a capsule in his throwing shoulder, he was 2-0 with a 3.32 ERA. I like Chris Young. When he was healthy, he gave the Mets some quality starts. Now that we are hearing about Young wanting to return, [...]
Ever since Matt Harvey pitched in his first game in St. Lucie last year, expectations have been high on the University of North Carolina product whom the Mets selected with their first round pick in 2010. Lets fast forward to 2012. Harvey, who is in big-league camp as a “non-roster invitee”, is impressing everyone whose caught a glimpse of him including the likes of the entire Mets coaching staff and front office. Warthen, Collins, Backman and other [...]
Over my 19 years of existence, I have watched thousands of archived baseball games. Whether they are on TV or the Internet, it was always interesting to watch old games from back in the 60′s, 70′s, 80, and 90′s. However, it was always the regular and post season games of the 1986 Mets that I enjoyed watching the most and found the most exciting. It wasn’t just because they were my favorite baseball team, but because [...]
Update: Sandy Alderson continued to make light of the Mets’ money problems on his new Twitter account Friday. “Bought 4 like-new tires at chop shop across from Citi,” the Mets GM wrote. “He threw in free wiper fluid. Better than [Zach] Wheeler deal!” Original Post As alot of you know by now, GM Sandy Alderson has officially joined Twitter. I was reading Matt Cerrone’s response to Alderson joining the Twittersphere this morning, and I wanted to write [...]
With the uncertainty of Johan Santana being ready for Opening Day, the idea of R.A. Dickey being the Mets opening day starter are starting to take shape around Metsland. Dickey was at the Munson Dinner last night where he addressed that possibility with reporters. I certainly hope that’s not the case. My first reaction would obviously be that I would be honored to do it, but it would be by default, because Johan is our ace. [...]
I was reading this great article by CBS Sports’ Rich Countinho asking if Mike Pelfrey can bounce back for the Mets this season. Countinho stated that in order for Pelfrey to bounce back for the Mets this year, he needs to go back to his “old” roots. I agree with Rich because the old way of pitching for Mike Pelfrey was what gave him the confidence to go out and be the pitcher he was [...]
Yesterday, I was watching Clubhouse Confidential on MLB Network and Peter Gammons was talking about the upcoming players who will be put up for a vote for the Hall’s Class of 2013. One of his responses really caught my attention. When Gammons talks about Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens and their chances of getting into the Hall of Fame, he stated that even though they allegedly took PED’s, “the Hall of Fame cannot be the [...]
Happy New Year Everyone! With not a whole lot to talk about today, I’ve got something to talk about. Where will Prince Fielder land? It’s really surprising to see that Fielder has not signed yet. We expected Fielder to ramp up his negotiations after Albert Pujols signed with the Los Angeles Angels. However, it appears that he has slowed down in his pursuit of a new team. According to Fielder’s agent Scott Boras, the process of getting Fielder acquainted [...]
Former Met Carlos Beltran is receiving interest from several teams including the Red Sox, Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Rays. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Beltran is being extensively looked at by the Cardinals as an offensive alternative. With Albert Pujols now in Anahiem, the Cards are looking at everyone in order to replenish their offense. If the Cardinals pickup Carlos Beltran, then its going to be interesting to see if he still has [...]
