They held the wrap party for “Nightmare on Roosevelt Avenue,” yesterday afternoon, and a good time was had by all. The Mets scored a month’s worth of runs to commemorate the ending of a nightmarish first half of baseball. Broken bodies, coupled with botched pop-ups equaled shattered hopes. Hopefully, now Jason, Freddy Kruger, and all of their twisted pals, can pack up their chain saws, hatchet’s, and other assorted bludgeoning apparatus, and return the bodies […]
About a month ago I broached the unpopular vision that if the Mets fell out of contention by the all-star break they should become sellers. Stop putting patches on the holes, but fill them permanently. According to another Mets site I was being “drawn and quartered,” by fellow bloggers. Anybody remember? Anyone want to get onboard with my radical, ahead of the curve thinking? Too late, no other major league team would want the Mets […]
Watching the Mets this past weekend ranked slightly above the on goings with the Kardashian Clan, but below C-Span. Anytime your hometown team averages one run per game, in the bandbox known as Citizen’s Bank Ballpark, it is a frustrating and sleepy endeavor. Regardless of who appears in the daily lineup. Right now the Mets are being overmatched by pitchers eligible for their AARP cards and also ones pulled off the scrap heap. What to […]
So far the Subway Series has been a train wreck for the Mets offense. Imagine if Alex Cora had continued his anemic ways against A.J. Burnett (where did he get that shirt, from Greg Anthony?) and not snapped an 0-21 lifetime with a slap single? We would have been lamenting about getting no-hit by the former Met, a feat no Mets pitcher has ever accomplished. Nevertheless, the “hits cupboard” is barren right now, as the […]
Baseball is a romantic sport because one moment it snaps your heart in two, the next aflutter with hope. Take what has transpired in Met land as a prime example: Injuries seemingly have sabotaged a season, leaving fans thinking of changes and lamenting of what might have been. Then the St. Louis Cardinals, the former hated rival (some still hold grudges from 1985) arrive, and if not for Joel Pineiro’s gem, a four game sweep […]
There are two things a ballclub that has been decimated by injuries can do: Slide their gloves back on their handlebars and peddle home dejectedly, or adopt an “us against the world” mentality. Last night, the Mets showed the latter. And, why not? What do they have to lose now that all is lost? The pressure is off Jerry Manuel because the groceries he was given this spring have molded from the summer rain. Omar […]
From inside the Mets (and Rays) clubhouses I gleaned several conclusions Saturday: Carlos Beltran is a real gamer (I proposed trading him a month ago because the returning bounty would fill several holes, but I agree with a post who called me “insane” ). He’s hurting right now. (scheduled for a MRI Monday). His knee barks loud when he has to put on the breaks. His diving catch yesterday, that saved two runs, is probably […]
Ryan Church will never be more than a marginal player for the following reasons: His swing is too long; it starts in Flushing and ends in Corona. Number Two: He has a low baseball IQ. Case in point, during a tilt of the Subway Series, and a runner in scoring position with one out, he attempts to bunt. With a short porch at the end of a jet stream staring him in the grill. Ouch! […]
I’m speechless, my friends. In over 40 years of watching baseball I never witnessed a player costing his team the game by flubbing a routine pop up. Every year baseball shows me something I have not yet seen. I can live without what I just saw. Sitting next to my son, the Yankee fan (how did that happen?) I sensed that K-Rod wanted no part of Mark Texiera. I endorsed pitching around the torrid […]
