An article by posted on May 30, 2009 0 Comments

One week ago: “I need to get better.  I need to get on base and score.” One week ago on May 22, the Mets were in the midst of a tough road trip, facing top shelf teams on their respective home turfs. The Mets were going into Boston with a 4-6 record over their last […]

An article by posted on May 29, 2009 0 Comments

After Gary Sheffield was nailed at the plate, at what he assumed was a home run by Daniel Murphy on Thursday night-assumed being the operative word, it might behoove all of the Mets to bust it on balls that carom off the quirky Citi Field walls. To be a home run, or not to be […]

An article by posted on May 27, 2009 0 Comments

Buffalo 3, Lehigh Valley 5 Jon Niese had yet another godawful performance for the Bisons this season, tonight giving up 5 runs in 6 innings.

Why Are The Mets So Bad At Handling Injuries?

An article by posted on May 26, 2009 0 Comments

This team when it comes to handling injuries is just horrible.  We saw it last year with Ryan Church’s concussion in Atlanta.  The Mets gave him a game off, flew him to Colorado and had him playing while suffering a concussion.  It was a major setback to the season as Church was not the same […]

Buffalo 1, Lehigh Valley 2 Oliver Perez. That’s about all you need to know tonight. Ollie was Ollie, walking 5 in 4.1 innings, including one with the bases loaded and one to the opposing pitcher. He threw just 48 of 88 pitches for strikes and took the loss, despite giving up just a run on […]
