Fear And Loathing In New Britain With Some RockCat Angst

B-Met Manager Pedro Lopez Throws BP Well at least Wheeler is pitching today, and I just saw him and boy does he have his game face on. After two rain-filled night games where the RockCats ate the B-Mets lunch, we got day baseball, we got sun, and we got Zack Wheeler on the hill today. […]

Making The Right Call At Second Base

A parent recently told me an inspiring story of sportsmanship, from a Flagler Police Athletic League playoff game.

Arr, Dickey Stifles The Pirates In A Swashbucklin’ 3-2 Victory Over The Pirates

Dickey probably could have gone the entire game tonight the way he was dealing – 7 dominant innings led the Mets to a 3-2 victory. Summary I have come to the conclusion that I need to see as many of Tricky Dick’s games as I possibly can, because this man can seriously pitch. R.A. started […]

On The Road With Petey Pete: Wet & Soggy In New Britain

With respect to Bisons lefty Chuck James who told me a few weeks ago in response to my somewhat facetious comment to him, “Everyday’s a beautiful day for baseball.” Yesterday in New Britain, CT it wasn’t exactly a beautiful day for baseball as it rained right up until game time, and then the B-Mets lost […]

An article by posted on May 21, 2012 0 Comments

Right now the starting pitching options are limited as the Mets look to fill the void left by Mike Pelfrey. Who would have thought we would miss Mike Pelfrey so much? Anyway, things don’t look great right now as Miguel Batista is on the DL, and Jeremy Hefner leaves you little to get excited about. […]
