Generally teams have to think of creative ways to fill the stands (or, corporations think of creative ways for teams to fill the stands) and this year more than ever this will need to happen. I have spent some time going through the promotion schedules for April for about every team, and I have picked […]

Pelfrey’s New Pitch

An article by posted on March 20, 2009

Pelfrey was spectacular yesterday, furthermore showing why the Mets have strength in their rotation, but he also showed something a little more yesterday, his new pitch. From hanging around Livan Hernandez, Pelfrey has developed a new sinker for left handed batters, who usually do damage against Pelfrey. The New York Times actually calls it a […]

Could Figueroa Slip In That Last Spot?

An article by posted on March 15, 2009

Redding has been shut down, Garcia has been pretty terrible and Livan Hernandez has been tolerable. That is the state of the Mets fifth rotation spot.

Having Your Cake and Eating It Too: Where to Bat Reyes

An article by posted on February 17, 2009

Jerry Manuel made a very casual comment the other day that he was going to try changing things in the order to not only give Castillo more confidence but also to make Reyes a better player, because really, you are only the leadoff batter once a game. If only there was a way for Reyes […]

The MLB Fantasy Baseball Rankings have came out, and they have ranked 800 players. I don’t take too much stock in the fantasy rankings, but its also nice to see your players recognized. One debate I hear a lot with Mets fans is who is better, Reyes or Wright? Well MLB.com also has a hard […]

What Happens to Pedro?

An article by posted on January 11, 2009

With the Mets signing Redding this past week to have him “compete” with Niese for the final rotation spot, and still confident that they will sign either Lowe or Perez, the question then becomes what happens to Pedro. Omar still likes Pedro, and was open to his return. Pedro has made it very public that […]
