The fact that Johan Santana won a game after the All-Star Break was nothing new. After all, he’s now 59-17 in his career after the All-Star Break and 9-0 with the Mets. The only thing new about it was the team he defeated. Santana pitched seven shutout innings and his teammates provided him with all the runs he needed in the sixth inning as the Mets defeated the Braves 5-1. It marked the first career […]
Much has been made about the 2009 Mets resembling the 1987 team because of the injuries. The difference is that this year’s injuries have mainly cost the Mets their offensive spark plugs while the 1987 team lost their starting pitchers to various injuries. I have done extensive research on the 1987 team and I will try to show why the current team is not dead yet. For those of you who already know the ending […]
As you’re all well aware, Jeff Francoeur will be the Mets new everyday rightfielder. The reaction on this site and all over the blogosphere has been quite vocal, to say the least. I have noticed a share of fans panning the deal, despite the fact that Francoeur has yet to play his first game in a Mets uniform. I will not attempt to compare Ryan Church to Francoeur in this post. I will leave that […]
According to mlb.com, Phillies’ outfielder Jayson Werth has been added to the National League All-Star team to replace injured Mets centerfielder Carlos Beltran. Werth will join his fellow Phillie outfielders Raul Ibañez and Shane Victorino in St. Louis for the All-Star festivities. Ibañez was voted in by the fans as a starter while Victorino made the team this week as the winner of the Sprint Final Vote. Werth enters tonight’s action with a .268 batting […]
Before the injuries started mounting, before the fielding and mental errors began to grow, the Mets’ front office made another error. This error happened in the offseason and it was made by Omar Minaya. The Mets could have acquired Jason Marquis from the Cubs for practically nothing and didn’t pull the trigger. First, as reported by Dan Graziano in the Star-Ledger, the Mets could have sent much-beleaguered reliever Aaron Heilman to the Cubs for Marquis. […]
Including today’s game with the Phillies, the Mets have now played 81 games. They’ve reached the midway point of the season battered and bruised, but still breathing. Their record stands at 39-42, leaving them four games behind first place Philadelphia. Somehow, they’ve managed to stay competitive in the standings while occasionally looking pathetic on the field. What does the Magic 8-ball have in store for the second half? Before we shake it up for the […]
According to espn.com, Oliver Perez is set to return to the Mets to make a start on Wednesday night against the Dodgers at Citi Field. Although he claims to be healthy, his latest effort on the mound seems to suggest that not much has changed since we last saw him in New York. He continues to be the master of the conga line, allowing opposing hitters to walk freely around the bases. He threw 92 […]
Earlier this week, Jerry Manuel had a team meeting with his players after the Mets dropped their fifth straight game, a 6-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. They had been playing sloppy, lethargic baseball and had fallen two games under .500. In the nearly half hour meeting, Manuel claimed the following: “The whole key was to say that we have enough. We have enough. We’ve got enough in here to do what we need to […]
The last time the Mets were in Pittsburgh, I wrote a piece about PNC Park having similar effects to the Mets as Atlanta’s Turner Field once had, and to an effect, still has. Over the past few years, PNC Park had become a house of horrors for the Mets. They failed to clinch the division title there in 2006, they suffered repeated late-inning setbacks there and earlier this season, the Pirates won all three games […]
