Ben Sheets hit 91mph in his showcase workout yesterday in Louisiana. According to MetsBlog, the Mets had a representative in attendance among the 20 or so scouts and reps on hand. Jon Heyman of SI.com said that he talked to a couple of scouts who were very impressed and felt they were watching ‘the old Ben Sheets. All along, I have felt that Ben Sheets could be the key to the pitching market. Once teams knew the […]
It only took the Mets 14 days into the New Year to embarrass themselves and their fans. Of course I’m talking about the whole debacle over Carlos Beltran’s knee surgery. Once again the Mets completely mishandled the news of an injury to a key player on their team. Some that should have been simple has exploded in the face of the Mets… again. Go back to last year and the press conference from hell where […]
Okay Fans. It’s time to put to bed all the foolishness that has enveloped the Mets this past week. Make no mistake. It is ALL foolishness. We can try to ascertain who is at fault, who was right, who was wrong. Analyze it. Whatever. The bottom line is we’re missing, arguably, our best player for at least 2 to 4 weeks of the regular season, and probably a little longer. (Let’s be hopeful it won’t […]
Like the rest of you, I found the news of Carlos Beltran’s surgery earlier this week disturbing. I found the Mets reaction to be disgusting. So being both disturb and disgusted, I took a step back and tried to find something positive we could focus on. First, pitchers and catcher aren’t due to report to Port St. Lucie for another month. This will give manager Jerry Manuel and his coaching staff some time to prepare […]
Ben Sheets is by no means the only selfish ballplayer. In fact he’s just one of the vast majority. But I chose to pick on him because his name is so prominent in the news right now, as he tries to find a team to gamble and guarantee him a lot of money. If you don’t know, Ben Sheets has been injury prone for most of his entire career. He has averaged just 18 starts per […]
Carlos Delgado is currently playing in the Puerto Rican Winter League and is interested in returning next season. Likewise, the Mets are interested in bringing the slugging first baseman back to New York. Delgado had a good start to the 2009 season with a .298/.393/.521 line. Of course, that was all in a total of 26 games as the 37-year old first baseman underwent season-ending right hip surgery back in May. The Mets are not the only team interested […]
The saga continues. Once again the question arises when it comes to the Mets medical staff and the organization leadership; does the left hand know what the right hand is doing? Obviously not. With so many players injured during the course of the 2009 season and the way the players were or were not treated medically correct, sparked a very real concern among Mets fans everywhere. Of course it really goes back to the 2008 […]
Mark McGwire’s admission that he used steroids is both a black eye and a small weight off Major League Baseball’s collective shoulder at the same time. I mean, this wasn’t something we all didn’t know, but at the same time, it’s important for guys like Mac to come clean. After thrilling us with the Great Home Run Chase of 1998, we were owed the truth. I’m looking in your direction, Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds, […]
Ben Sheets, who after refusing to throw for teams early in the offseason, will apparently put his repaired right arm on display for suitors. Sheets, 31, has drawn interest from many teams, though it has generally been tempered because of his exorbitant contract demands for a pitcher with injury problems. Sheets has asked for a $10-12 million deal for at least two years. While interest in him is there, those numbers have scared off most […]
