According to mlb.com, Major League Baseball will be expanding the rosters for this year’s All-Star Game from 32 to 33 players. The extra player added will be a pitcher, allowing for each league to have 13 pitchers at its disposal. This move was deemed necessary because last year’s Midsummer Classic lasted 15 innings, prompting both managers to use all of their available pitchers. The last time rosters were expanded was in 2003. That move was […]
It was the year 2000. The Y2K scare had come and gone. Music fans were wondering who let the dogs out. Mets fans were still cursing out Kenny Rogers for ball four. The nemesis of the day wore a tomahawk on his chest. The Braves were the Mets’ chief rivals in 1999 and 2000. The Mets’ mojo was rising in 1999 and it took them all the way to the sixth game of the National […]
Recently, my colleague Gregg (Gregga) posted a fine piece on Ralph Kiner. In it, he mentioned how Mr. Kiner still provides excellent insight and colorful stories about players past and present, despite being a young man of 86 years of age. Seeing Mr. Kiner on SNY this past Thursday brought back memories of my youth. I remember arguing with my parents after watching a Mets telecast because they wanted to change the channel while I […]
In our last episode, the Three Fernandos appeared to have disbanded. Fernando Nieve was fighting for his life to stay in the rotation and was given one more shot to remain a core member of the Three Fernandos. Fernando Tatis was in the process of having the villagers sew him a new uniform. Rumor had it that his new number was going to be 6-4-3. Fernando Martinez had been sent down to Triple-A Buffalo after […]
Please do not be alarmed. That’s not a picture of David Wright getting injured. But the way things have been going for the Mets lately, would you be surprised if it was? The rash of injuries to hit the Mets continued this week with the news that Carlos Beltran would have to be placed on the disabled list with a bone bruise in his right knee. He joins a number of Mets players on the […]
As we reach another Father’s Day, let’s take a break from discussing the lack of run support for Johan Santana and the Three Fernandos breakup tour to reflect on a special man in our lives. He is the man who more than likely showed us how to throw our first curveball, took us to our first ballgame and showed us the proper way to order a ballpark hot dog (which I seem to have forgotten […]
As with the rest of the team, the Mets pitching staff has been hit by injuries to some of its key moundsmen. Two of the projected starting five (Oliver Perez and John Maine) and one of their key bullpen acquisitions (J.J. Putz) are currently on the disabled list. Despite all this, the Mets have remained near the top of the standings in the National League East, only two games behind the first place Philadelphia Phillies. […]
When we last left the Three Fernandos, they were defeating the evil forces of El Guapo (Derek Jeter), his right-hand man Jefe (Alex Rodriguez) and his left-hand man Castillo (Mark Teixeira). The Fernandos were able to thwart the Yankee bandits by confusing them into thinking they were everywhere. Dressed in matching Mets jerseys, the firepower provided by the bats of Gary Sheffield and Omir Santos and the cleanup crew of Sean Green and Francisco Rodriguez […]
The Philadelphia Phillies will be needing a new bat in the lineup for at least two weeks. SI.com is reporting that Raul Ibanez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained groin. He is eligible to return from the DL on July 3, but Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. is unsure whether Ibanez will be ready to play then. “It may be longer. But it’s to the point where we needed […]
