Mets pitchers in 2011 have just been pathetic at the plate. Yes, pitchers are suppose to be “the easy out” in the lineup, and more often than not, they are retired, but not at the pitiful rate the Mets pitching staff has. Mets pitchers are batting a collective .073 with 5 walks compared to 55 punchouts in 123 at-bats. The Mets pitcher’s batting average is near the bottom of the league in batting average, and this is even inflated due to Chris […]
According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the idea of a realignment is being mulled over in which the current six divisions would be eliminated, and instead have simply the two leagues. Olney broke the story on his twitter saying: In the midst of labor talks, possibility of realignment,with two 15-team leagues,has been raised The idea is to pool all the teams together, having two leagues of 15 clubs each, and the top five seeds of each league […]
Baseball has become an utter shell of what it once was, and that thought eats away at me every day. If Legends such as Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Cy Young, Satchel Paige and Walter Johnson were playing today, the present stars would be footnotes, bench players or even in the minor leagues. Today all the players care about is who will pay them more, not simply to play the game. The days of men in baseball are gone, […]
On Friday night, as many of you know, several hundred die-hards gathered on the Shea Bridge, myself included, chanting for the cause of keeping Jose Reyes as a New York Met. Many wearing The7Line’s T-shirts, it was truly an incredible experience to be part of such an event. To read my full report on Friday’s Reyes Rally you can click Here. But anyway, I truly expected this to be a one time event, we get our point across […]
Bay has been just God awful to start the season, and there is no debating that. Bay has seemingly lost any trace of his once feared and revered power stroke. This loss of pop simply cannot be blamed on Citi Field, as with the way Bay is hitting, I don’t think he could muscle one out of “Kiddie Field”! With Bay hard pressed not only to make contact, but to lay off pitches in the dirt, It […]
December 12th, 1984, the Mets acquired one of their best players to ever grace our presence in Flushing. Immediately, the fanbase was ecstatic over the acquisition, but in the coming years, Carter would prove to be one of the greatest Mets of all time. In only a mere five seasons, most of the fifth spent on the DL, Carter with his child-like exuberance and play, found a special place in every person’s heart that calls […]
Jose Reyes, going into his contract year, has just been tearing up the majors, to say the least. Now with Reyes out for 2-6 more days due to the death of his grandmother, there is a legitimate risk that Reyes might cool off after being away from baseball for that amount of time. With few star players left healthy on the Mets roster, Reyes slowing down would be detrimental to the Mets offense. The 27-year […]
Wilpon’s comments made yesterday were basically true, it is just that it should not be said by the owner. I believe Joel Sherman summed it up perfectly in saying that: The reality is that Wilpon had Wright defined ideally: Great kid, but no superstar player. But that truth should be left for people like me to tell. It is simply ungrateful sounding from this owner. What went through Wilpon’s brain when he made these comments? […]
In the chapter on Sandy Alderson in Moneyball, one of the biggest things Alderson was credited for was how he ran his minor league system. Alderson runs a franchise like a military style boot camp. He has specific rules, and wants these rules and regulations enforced properly by his respective managers, especially in the minors. In an effort to impose plate discipline on the minor and major league hitters, Alderson created a rule, mostly applying to minor […]
