Last night before the game, former Mets manager and new ESPN Sunday Night Analyst Bobby Valentine met with Mets shortstop Jose Reyes. They exchanged greetings, talked, and Valentine kissed the back of his hand. According to David Waldstein of the NY Times, Valentine then came away with a huge smile, and said, “And by the way, in case anyone asks, I made him into a switch-hitter.” Valentine brought Reyes, who spoke little English, and the bilingual coach […]
Don’t look now, but have you taken a look at Jason Bay’s numbers since he returned from the disabled list? The Mets are 5-0 since Bay was activated on April 21st, and he has strengthened and fortified what was once a meek lineup. Bay is hitting .368 (7-19) with two doubles, one home run, three RBI and a .429 on-base percentage, and the Mets have a .301 (50-166) batting average since Bay rejoined the lineup. Over the […]
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN? The Mets have confirmed that Ronny Paulino will be activated from the disabled list for Friday’s game in Philadelphia. Paulino caught all nine innings on Tuesday for Triple-A Buffalo and went 0-for-4. Original Post 4/26 Since the Mets first signed catcher Ronny Paulino on December 7th, he’s been pretty scarce in the Mets clubhouse. First it was a one month delay due to visa problems stemming from his PED suspension, then it […]
Here are a couple of quotes from Paul DePodesta from Adam Rubin of ESPN NY. You can read the whole interview at ESPN. Regarding this year’s Draft Class: “We’re excited about it. We think it’s a pretty deep draft — not necessarily in every category, but in general. There are definitely some good top-end players. There’s no doubt. We’re going to have a good choice at 13. I think we’re going to have at least […]
Here is some additional new info from hittracker.com courtesy of metsblog.com that sheds more light on my post from a few days ago. The Citi Field has averaged 2.27 home runs per game so far this season which ranks third highest in the National League. Ironically, Citizens Bank Park has one of the lowest home run rates at 1.36. This could be just a fluke, and why you should never rely heavily on small sample sizes. Matt […]
This afternoon, Mets GM Sandy Alderson was a guest of Mike Francesa on Sportsradio 660 WFAN. Before Alderson’s appearance, Francesa referred to Alderson as a liar – repeatedly saying that Alderson came on his show and lied. Francesa came to this conclusion because Alderson is an intelligent baseball man with an Ivy League degree and is not a fool. When Sandy came on his show before the season started, and told his listeners that the Mets would win […]
After tonight’s 6-1 loss to the Astros, Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters that he met with setup man Bobby Parnell in the trainers room, where he was being examined after feeling some discomfort. Collins said he was concerned because he hasn’t seen Parnell throwing his upper nineties fastball and is worried that there may be a problem. Parnell later said that he’s been having a hard time gripping the baseball with his middle finder for more than a week, and […]
Here are the top and bottom five of week two’s MLB Power Rankings as posted on the Daily News. Thanks to the Mets, the Colorado Rockies moved up six spots to claim the top spot. Top Five 1.

Philadelphia Phillies (10-4, Last week: 2) With […]
