Heilman Being Heilman

An article by posted on May 1, 2009 0 Comments

As the Mets venture South to Philly this weekend following a less-than-stellar beginning to their season, I thought it might brighten some peoples’ day by pointing out what occurred last night in Chicago. The Cubs and Marlins were locked in a 2-2 tie going into the 10th. In walks Aaron Heilman.  Heilman did not record […]

The Comeback Kids

Have any of you read Jack Curry’s piece in today’s Times about the Sillies? Well penned analysis about our enemy’s well developed tendencies to bounce back in the late innings. Had you heard about this Philly proclivity? Our Mets decidedly don’t comeback as Curry painfully indicates given how we have lost games for a while […]

The Idiot’s Guide To Citi Field

An article by posted on May 1, 2009 0 Comments

(Author’s note: This is just one man’s unbiased, impartial view of Citi Field. In no way am I implying that I am speaking for all Mets fans. Just my thoughts) After surviving a brutally cold winter in the northeast, last Sunday was one of those beautiful spring days that made it all worth it. Upon […]

Binghamton 8, Portland 3 Emmanuel Garcia broke out of a 6 for 37 slump in a huge way, going 3 for 4 with 3 runs, leading the Mets to a convincing 8-3 win over the Sea Dogs today. Josh Thole, Shawn Bowman and Mark Kiger also had multi hit games for the Mets, while Ruben […]

Well it seems as if the front office is all about giving players their shot and if they fail they are gone. Casey Fossum was designated for assignment this past Sunday after a short stint with the Big Leagues. Freddy Garcia never even made it to a big league game before being cut either. I […]

4/29 Minor League Report! Duda, Ratliff!

Buffalo 0, Rochester 1 I’m not sure what else I can say at this point. Pitch well and lose, pitch poorly and lose, score 4 and give up 5, score 0 and give up 1…it’s just a sad sad situation up in Buffalo right now. The Bisons were held to 7 hits and 3 walks […]

Best Bullpen In The NL, Except For Past 2 Days

An article by posted on April 29, 2009 0 Comments

Just another loss. Stop overdramatizing! Right? Lest, I incur the wrath of amateur statisticians, let me just say the BP is fantastic, league-leading in fact, but it just so happens they’ve blown two good starting performances in two days. No need to worry, right? I mean, the BP is fixed—the first three weeks of April […]

Uh-Oh

An article by posted on April 29, 2009 0 Comments

I was thinking last night as the Mets had a comfortable three-run lead, that maybe, just maybe they have turned a corner and that I can write something positive today. But in the back of my mind I was thinking that a 3-run lead with a (let’s face it) still-shaky bullpen was not going to hold up against the Marlins.

4/28 Minor League Report! THOLE, DUDA, NIEUWENHUIS!

An article by posted on April 28, 2009 0 Comments

Binghamton 8, Portland 9 As one of my friends is fond of saying, it is better to fail spectacularly then succeed blandly (paraphrased). In that vein, I present to you Roy Merritt’s first blown save, a spectactular 3 run bottom of the 9th. OK, all kidding aside, it was an ugly night for the pitchers, […]
