While there were a few bright spots in last night’s Mets loss to the Phillies, one particular thing stands out in my mind. Forgive me for not being able to recall the inning, but Damion Easley was at the plate, with a chance to hit for the cycle (only needing a double), and with Jose Reyes on first, Easley drops a drag bunt down the third base line, beating out the throw and giving the [...]
This upcoming November, we all will be electing a new President to lead this country. However, a far more important election this fall will be who is named Most Valuable Player of not only the National League, but also Mets Nation. Jose Reyes quietly has been putting up MVP-like numbers all season long, all the while with a big smile on his face. Reyes leads the league in at-bats (524), triples (13), and multi-hit games. [...]
I for one do not usually believe in everything I see. Statistics though, are quite difficult to overlook and push aside. In baseball, they prove to be solid numerical proof to almost tell a story of how a player has performed. Since the conclusion of last nights 9-3 victory over the Washington Nationals, I have dissected carefully any and all statistical information pertaining to the turnaround of the birthday boy, Oliver Perez. Omar Minaya [...]
I don’t think I was the only Mets fan this morning who is a little surprised to see that they share first place with the Phillies. It’s like a cherry on top of Wednesday night’s sundae of a game. Seeing the Mets play an actual laugher of a game vs. the Nationals on Wednesday night was a welcomed surprise. I can’t recall the last time the Mets routed a team to the point where the [...]
The first half of the season is over, thankfully. And as we get back to the second half of the season, I hope we can look forward to continuing to enjoy watching New York Mets Baseball. The past two weeks have been exciting. The Mets have been playing the type of baseball we all hoped they could. I never would have guessed it earlier in the season. All too often in the first half of [...]
The New York Mets find themselves just a half game behind their rival Philadelphia Phillies. The Mets, who have won nine straight, as well as their fans, are probably wishing that somehow, some way, this mid-summer classic was an end-of-the-season classic, so as not to break this team’s unbelievable momentum. Nine in a row is no joke. They are doing everything right and it is paying off. Our starting pitching is un-hittable. And our offense [...]
Where would the Mets be this past few weeks without new pitching coach Dan Warthen? It seems in just a short amount of time that he has brought this year’s pitching staff back to life and has really jump-started Mike Pelfrey. Since taking over for Rick Peterson last month, Warthen has corrected Oliver Perez’s inconsistency, dramatically changed Pelfrey’s performance, solved Pedro hat-tipping his pitches and even changed Johan Santana’s delivery to make him even more effective. During [...]
As the week has unfolded as crisp and smooth as a cloth napkin in a fine restaurant, our beloved Amazins stand only one game in the loss column behind the Phillies. After disposing of the Giants and the abominable lineup they send out each night, Colorado comes into Flushing for a pre all star break weekend excursion The Mets will hope to catapult themselves to the thrown of the NL East upon closing out the [...]
With the All-Star teams being named earlier today and only one Met, Billy Wagner, being on the roster with David Wright potentially being voted in with MLB’s LAST VOTE, this could be an opportune time for the remaining players on the Mets to get their heads together, re-group, and make a strong push for the playoffs in the second half of this season. If the score holds after this rain delay today, coupled with a [...]
Mets fans all over have been holding their breath for the past month or so as we approach this weekend’s four-game series versus our division rivals, the <insert expletive> Phillies. Since our change in management in mid-June, the Mets have a record of 7-8, a coin flip out of context. With context, though, we see a team revitalized. The Mets show to have resolve and fight in them. Ryan Church has returned to the lineup [...]
Both the Mets and the Yankees are coming into this weekend’s subway series with records neither fan base is happy about. The water cooler has not been bearing witness to any smack-talk as it usually does this time of year. Rather, Yankee fans and Met fans seem to be avoiding each other, hugging the shadows not wanting to be noticed. Frankly, both teams have stunk it up this season. Each team finds themselves in third [...]
