You can’t win ‘em all, it has been said, but last night’s defeat did sting a tad. For one, the Mets continue to squander sterling Johan Santana performances. He should hire a lawyer and sue the hitters for non-support. Why do the bats take a respite every time the fiery lefty storms the hill? The numbers don’t lie: 2.14 runs per game, worse for a starter (with 6 or more starts) this year. Can’t the […]
“If I were a baseball manager, I would tell my guys batting third, fourth, fifth and sixth never to slide. Sure, there would be some embarrassing Jeremy Giambi/Carlos Beltran moments, and maybe a few runs would be lost along the way. But in the end, there would be a lot less injuries to my stars.” The musing by the Daily News’ Filip Bondy appeared in his “The Daily Blahg.” First of all, thank goodness he […]
The fears broached in spring training are coming to fruition in the first month of the season. Will the Mets be competitive when spots 2-5 come up in the rotation? The answer this week was a resounding NO. After Johan Santana pitched another one of his signature games last Saturday, it’s been all downhill. Oliver Perez and John Maine are hard-pressed to get through five innings and Mike Pelfrey is not sound. Livan Hernandez was […]
Opening Night is grand when it pertains to Broadway, but baseball is another story.Far be it from me to douse the flames of fervor, but the christening of Citi Field as the skies darken and the temps’ plummet is another in a long list of travesties perpetrated on the defenseless fans. We are treated more and more like sheep as time passes and we comply by following the shepherd off to slaughter. Nevertheless, I ask […]
Waking up on opening day of the baseball season has a similar feel for grown-ups as Christmas morning does for kids. We greatly anticipate that first pitch, akin to a child rushing to tear open the presents. We can’t wait to see if this particular year includes something we always wanted a World Championship or a Pet Rock. For the past two seasons the ending has been a clunker, but when the bell rings […]
As we officially enter the purgatory known as the “dog days of spring training” it’s hard not to become antsy. We can hear the sizzle of an upcoming season, but long to taste it. Whoever said patience is a virtue had to be a baseball fan around this time of year. With opening day less than two weeks away, everyone-fans, players, managers, and sportswriters have grown tired of the monotony of spring training. […]
Mets fans may be clamoring for the return of Pedro Martinez but management is not. I agree with team brass, not because I love the candidates for the fifth starting slot, but does anyone believe he could hold up to the rigors of a full season when he has broken apart at the seams the last two plus? If Pedro were the prideful athlete he would play this season for the major league minimum […]
I have an idea on how to end the stalemate between Manny Ramirez and the Dodgers:Have Manny request a bailout from the federal government. Every other business in the United States has, why not Manny? He’s as entitled as the rest of them, and probably more productive. At least he’s upfront with his demands and won’t pay one cent of bonuses after he receives the money. Sharing is not in Manny’s DNA (just ask the […]
Omar Minaya has proved adept at lying in the weeds and swooping in at the right moment to add star power to the Mets. He used that prudent strategy to sign free agents Carlos Beltran, Johan Santana, and this off-season, Frankie Rodriquez. Ironically, when he deviated, and basically bid against himself, he landed Luis Castillo. That signing has been a disaster. But, Minaya can rectify it with one more signing. Bring in Orlando […]
