Coming through in the clutch is a great measure of a baseball player’s value. Who is and who isn’t clutch. MMO readers have had numerous heated arguments on this subject. Just remember – No player can be clutch all the time. Here are my top ten battles in which Mets pitchers or batters failed to come through in clutch. Mets Come Out On The Bottom #10- Jon Matlack vs. Bert Campaneris and Reggie Jackson on [...]
There are several interesting player comparisons we can look at in the first few rounds of 2010 fantasy drafts. This season seems more muddled then normal, with very few clear-cut selections for fantasy owners to make due to injuries or epic struggles in 2009. One of the interesting debates right now comes in the second round, with David Wright (ADP 14.40) currently going a selection before Carl Crawford (ADP 15.17), on average. Given the type [...]
This past week Carlos Delgado played baseball for the first time in months in Puerto Rico. The Mets as we know are down on that beautful Island right now scouting him, deciding whether or not to offer him a contract for the 2010 season. Reports coming out of Puerto Rico is Delgado doesn’t move well. It seems that hip is still a problem and that is exactly why the Mets need to avoid bringing Carlos [...]
Throughout history, the greatest conflicts are the ones which pit man against his fellow man. Moses vs. Pharaoh; Alexander Hamilton vs. Aaron Burr; Darth Vader vs. Luke Skywalker. However, not all conflicts must end in death. On that note, there is nothing more exciting than a showdown between a pitcher and batter in an important and critical moment of a baseball game. The Mets have had some incredibly exciting and hair raising moments. Below is [...]
Djean Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette believes that the Pirates are interested in signing right fielder Ryan Church. Church, 31, hit .273 with four home runs and 40 RBI’s while splitting time as a member of both the Mets and Braves last season. This news is somewhat surprising as it was rumored for weeks that the Pirates were looking to sign another free agent outfielder by the name of Rick Ankiel. However, as Kovacevic notes [...]
December 7th 1984 - Poking hot coals from Hot Stove History The guy pitched well, but there were so many arms “on the come” throughout the Mets minor leagues and majors that Frank Cashen dealt away a good young arm in Walt Terrell on December 7th 1984. Walt Terrell had arrived via a trade from April 1, 1982. I think the Texas Rangers organization and fans realize the “April fools” joke was on them that [...]
I have to be honest, I didn’t think GM Omar Minaya had it in him to land Jason Bay. I was ready to chalk up the 2010 season to rebuilding and maybe finishing in fourth place, but Minaya’s pursuit and subsequent landing of Bay to play left field for the Mets and possibly bat cleanup has changed my outlook of this team. Not entirely, of course, but this is a solid move that injects a [...]
I fear the Fish . As currently constituted the the Marlins are a very good ball club. They finished 87-75 in 2009 and have the potential to do better in 2010. This is quite a feat considering they have the lowest payroll team in all of baseball. Last year they started the season at $36M. They have a great lineup with solid top of the rotation starting pitching. Their main weakness is relief pitching. Starting [...]
The Mets have started 2010 the right way as Jason Bay is officially a New York Met after passing a physical. Later on today the Mets will have a press conference introducing Jason Bay as the newest Met. The deal is for 4 years and is worth $66 million dollars with a vesting option for a 5th year. Some have problems with the contract but the Mets needed Jason Bay to fill that very sizable [...]
