Detroit Tigers pitching coach Rick Knapp is saying Kenny Rogers has decided to retire, according to mlive.com. Rogers has not made this official. Knapp is claiming since he is close to the pitcher, he claims it as fact. Other reports have indicated the 44 year old pitcher has been contemplating coming back in 2009 to give himself another year. Should he retire, he will be known by one horrible moment in Mets Fan-dom and one […]
Outside of Citi Field itself, that is exactly how it is going to be on opening day if the Mets do not get themselves some help with that starting rotation. Good pitching stops good hitting. We all know this. It’s drilled into our brains by every baseball analyst on television and in the papers. NEWSFLASH! Right now the Mets do not have enough pitching. All they have are Johan Santana and Mike Pelfrey as their number […]
Remember the good ‘ole days when the New York Mets had “The Best Infield Ever” as described by a cover on Sports Illustrated? Remember who made up that infield? John Olerud, 1B; Edgardo Alfonzo, 2B; Rey Ordóñez, SS; and Robin Ventura, 3B. No other team could compete with that. The combination of number 13 and number 10 alone was incredible. How about bringing back some of that stellar defense with Fonzi? At 35 years of […]
With Jason Giambi going back to the Oakland Athletics, where he began his baseball journey, people have started to discuss if going back to the original team a player started with would resurrect their careers. I do not agree with this. Coming home again does not come with any guarantees. Some people argue that it gives the player more motivation to play. If this were the case, why play at all? By making that argument, […]
I woke up to the freezing cold and icy roads this morning in Pennsylvania. I did not want to get out of bed. So I turned on my cellphone and went to ESPN. God bless Verizon. There is another side to the J.C. Romero story. I was on board with everyone else where I did not fault Romero for his use of the supplement, 6-OXO. It looked like he did his part in researching to […]
I have often prided myself in getting great deals when I am shopping. I get what I want at the price that I want. Shopping is the only area in my life that I practice patience. Omar Minaya has apparently adopted my philosophy when shopping for new players. I think the Mets have been very smart in the way they handled this offseason. Minaya has been so patient, to the point where it drives Mets […]
“Tickets are too expensive.” “The Mets are not thinking about families.” “Those prices are outrageous.” Those are the number one complaints that I get from Mets fans every time I write about tickets. To be honest, I think people are in an uproar over nothing. The Mets have taken every step to try to keep prices as low as possible for everyone. The only thing I can ask is, have you really checked out the […]
With the Winter Meetings on the horizon and just ahead, I return from a three month hiatus from posting here on Metsmerized. I have not been short of words to say or topics to discuss, but the emotional letdown of yet another September meltdown was too much to overcome until now. My outlook for this offseason is optimistic but yet frighteningly realistic at the same time. I do believe the Mets number one priority needs to be adding […]
Since the season ended, we’re all looking at the changes the Mets need to make, and most of us have a couple players at the top of their list of people they’d like to see elsewhere. Notably, the majority of the bullpen and Luis Castillo tops most lists. Recently, though, I’ve seen people list Ryan Church up there, and I’m a little perplexed. Sure Ryan Church lost a lot of production at the plate down […]
