As the Mets worry about Johan Santana’s elbow, and feel pretty good about John Maine, Mike Pelfrey and Ollie Perez in the middle, there are too many guys who can’t seem to win that fifth starter’s role. A fifth starter is a luxury until May 1, but not if someone gets hurt (or is already hurt), but we wouldn’t be Mets fans if we didn’t look back at what might have been for this rotation. […]
A few weeks back fans of the New York Mets nearly went into cardiac arrest when it was announced that Johan Santana was experiencing some stiffness in his left elbow which as we all know is his throwing arm. Santana was scheduled to fly out of Florida and into New York for an MRI to see what exactly was wrong with the elbow but because of bad weather he did not make that flight. There […]
After being knocked around yesterday by the Michigan Wolverines, Tim Redding was quoted by the New York Post as saying, “I showed them last year – that’s why I’m here,” said Redding, who was 10-11 for the Nationals in 2008. “I don’t have anything to prove. I’ve proved to myself I belong on this stage, with a ballclub of this caliber, doing the job that I can do.” Who is he kidding here? Redding only […]
Pedro Martinez said that he would use the World Baseball Classic as an audition for any interested teams, and today’s outing against the Netherlands was a good start. Martinez replaced Rafael Perez for the 5th inning and proceeded to pitch 3 scoreless innings, face the minimum 9 batters, gave up one hit, and struck out four of the final five hitters faced. Martinez threw 40 pitches, a whopping 32 of them for strikes. He gave […]
Ironically, for my first Mets Merized post I will not be focusing on the Mets, but rather the World Baseball Classic. Love it or hate it, Mets fan might want to pay attention to it – since there is a major league high sixteen Mets participating. Whether its the idea of the world’s best players squaring off in an international format, or I am just starving for some competitive baseball after the winter – I […]
A couple of days ago there was a photo in the paper of a smiling Pedro Martinez having a good time preparing for that annoying WBC with fellow Dominicans, such as, ahem, Moises Alou–didn’t that tell me all I needed to know?. He was wearing a Mets cap, and it took me a minute to realize that he isn’t really a Met anymore. That kind of affected me. I wasn’t sure why at first because, […]
Let’s face it, we’re all concerned and rightly so about Johan Santana’s elbow. Take him out of the Mets’ rotation and suddenly we look like the Braves. But a few days ago I was reading the (awesome) USA Today sports page, and there was a capsule preview about the 2009 Mets, and about how Omar Minaya went out and grabbed two closers to make up for the absence of Billy Wagner in 2009, and to […]
Pitching Coach Dan Warthen said earlier today to the New York Post that it is unlikely to expect ace Johan Santana to start Opening Day, April 6, against the Cincinnati Reds. The more likely season debut for Santana would be Saturday, April 11 against the Florida Marlins. Santana will throw bullpen sessions on March 7 and 10 and throw batting practice on the 13th. After a side-session on March 15th, he could make his first […]
We begin this week’s look at the NL East with the team that has had the most tumultuous week, the Washington Nationals. Jim Bowden, GM of the Nationals resigned amid allegations of skimming money from signing bonuses from Dominican player signings. Stan Kasten, team president will take over on an interim basis, while the team looks for a permanent replacement. Kasten has prior GM experience with the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks during the 80′s, and has […]
