In case you are unaware, David Wright has hit the ground running to start the 2012 season, and that’s putting it lightly. The franchise third baseman has been infamous for eating up the southpaws, but in what is shaping up to be a career year for David Wright, he has actually hit right handed pitching moreso than that of the lefties in 2012. Wright is batting .376/.475/.554 on the year, ranking fifth in all of […]
The supposed “grand dynasty” that is the Philadelphia Phillies appears to be wavering to this point in 2012. Inconsistent bullpen work, aging players and awful defense have resulted in their resting at the bottom of the NL East 30 games into the season. Some teams would mope and continue to free fall, others would rise up and return to glory, but the Phillies have had a different approach so far; win, by any means necessary. […]
With Josh Thole going on the new 7-day DL with a concussion, Mike Nickeas will get a chance to show what he’s got as an everyday backstop over the next week. This is a wide open opportunity for Nickeas, who has never been known for much more than an above-average arm and a good clubhouse guy. After being drafted by the Rangers in the fifth round of the 2004 draft, Nickeas worked his way up to Double-A […]
Recap: It was a beautiful day for baseball as the Mets took on the Arizona Diamondbacks and bested them behind R.A. Dickey’s stellar outing, taking the rubber game of the series 3-1. For the first few innings, it looked as if Dickey had the stuff to go the distance and end the streak of 7,995 games without a no-hitter, but alas, Gerarado Parra’s fourth inning ground-rule double dashed any hopes of that. Another disappointment in […]
“I’m coming back. Write it down in big letters. I’m not going out like this.” -Mariano Rivera today on his possible season-ending ACL injury Those are the words of a true champion, of someone who doesn’t know the meaning of the word “can’t”. If you know him just as the all-time saves leader, then you do not know Mariano Rivera. Despite whatever resentment you may hold for the logo across his chest, one has to […]
Why are Manny Acosta and Miguel Batista still New York Mets? With ERA’s of 9.69 and 6.92 respectively in a combined 26 innings of “work” –if you can call their awful outings work–, they do not deserve to be at the major league level in any way, shape or form. In an offseason centered around creating a strong and formidable bullpen, Sandy Alderson and the Mets are letting that effort go to waste by leaving […]
Recap: Dillon Gee took the hill to square off against the Rockies rookie hurler Guillermo Moscoso in the second game of the three game set in the Mile High City. Gee, coming off an awful start, came to play tonight, hurling seven frames allowing four runs (3 earned) on seven hits while punching out seven, picking up his second win of the year. Moscoso however didn’t enjoy the same success, only completing five innings while […]
Unless you were living under a rock or otherwise incapacitated, it was impossible not to hear about Jose Reyes’ return to Flushing with his last-place Miami Marlins. After an eventful offseason by the Marlins, headlined by the 6-year, $106 million deal that got Reyes in one of those God-awful Miami uniforms, the former Met came back to where it all began these past few days. It was a welcomed trip down memory lane for the 28-year old speedster, but […]
Kirk Nieuwenhuis; it’s almost as hard to spell his name as it is for pitchers to get him out. Kirk came up this year after Opening Day to replace the injured Andres Torres and has performed with the finesse of a seasoned veteran. Whether it’s in the middle of the order, or leading off, the 24-year old centerfielder has found a way to get on base. He doesn’t particularly exceed in one or two parts […]
