“Lee is a great pitcher, and it’s not that I want them to be overly aggressive. Part of the whole plan is to be disciplined and get something good to hit. The other part of that is, it could be the second pitch of the at-bat. You don’t have to go up there and just take pitches. You might be able to get a good ball to hit on the first or second pitch of […]
I think some Met fans are making way too much of Mike Pelfrey’s pitching performance last night. In fact he was one bad call from an ump away from being a complete disaster. And even so, Pelfrey now owns the worst ERA on the team with a 4.76 mark. It’s familiar territory for Pelfrey who had the worst ERA last season, and again this Spring. Pelfrey allowed 10 hits and a walk in 5.2 innings […]
Check out this funny Zoloft spoof on the Mets by those pranksters at UCB Comedy. Hat tip to Mets Police.
GAME ONE: METS 1 – BRAVES 0 In his first start since 2010, Johan Santana hurled five scoreless innings, and after David Wright struck with a go-ahead RBI single in the sixth off Tommy Hanson, the Mets’ bullpen shut the door on the Braves to preserve the Opening Day victory. GAME TWO: METS 4 – BRAVES 2 Lucas Duda belted a pair of homers to back R.A. Dickey as the Mets defeated the Braves to […]
Here’s a another edition of MMO Mets Quotables which includes some pre and post Opening Day game quotes as well as some other assorted goodies. “It’s a great feeling. We’re as ready as we can possibly be right now. We’ve got the big boy going and that means a lot. That’s an exciting time for everybody to see him on the mound again. It’s Opening Day. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” ~ Terry Collins on Opening […]
The Mets made two last minute moves and placed pitchers Pedro Beato (shoulder stiffness) and D.J. Carrasco (sprained ankle) on the disabled list today in advance of Opening Day tomorrow afternoon. The moves opened up roster spots for reliever Miguel Batista and outfielder Mike Baxter. Relievers Tim Byrdak (knee) and Frank Francisco (knee) will both avoid the DL as will outfielder Andres Torres (calf). The Mets Opening Day Roster is now set and as follows: Opening Day Lineup Andres […]
A new MMO feature for a new Mets season, introducing MMO Mets Quotables. “We lost Jose. We lost Carlos. We lost Frankie Rodriguez, all very, very good players. We lost some big pieces of the puzzle. But you know what you do? You bring other people in to fill those spots. You trust them. You believe in them. Now what I’ve got to have them do is believe in themselves, because that’s where it starts. […]
The country might be in dire economic shape, but don’t tell that to the San Francisco Giants or the low market Cincinnati Reds who both set new benchmarks player compensation. Lets start with Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain who is now the richest right-handed pitcher in baseball after he agreed to a five-year contract extension that will guarantee him $127.5 million dollars when added to the $15 million salary for 2012 that was remaining in his previous deal. […]
Here is a followup to a post I wrote last week on Jason Bay AKA The 500 Pound Gorilla In The Corner Outfield. Mike Puma of the NY Post writes this morning: A club official yesterday floated the possibility that if Bay is struggling six or seven weeks into the season, the Mets could explore other options, including a platoon in left. Bay is hitting .195 with no RBIs this spring after going 0-for-3 in the Mets’ 9-2 exhibition […]
