This Mets team is struggling to get started this year. Not for a lack of production from its 4-5-6 hitters, or so the boxscore would have you imagine. Carlos Delgado has hit the ground running with a .343 BA and 3 dingers. Carlos Beltran is hitting .333. Ryan Church is batting a stellar .419 with 6 doubles!! How is […]

Do We Give Ollie Another Turn in the Rotation?

An article by posted on April 15, 2009 0 Comments

A 7-2 victory was just what the doctor ordered. Yes! When Ron Darling says that a guy “pitched really well tonight” who am I to dispute? Given the weather and lack of great run support, I agree. He looked good and maintained his composure. His slider looked good, and nice to see he’s sporting a […]

Seven Games In and I’m Uneasy

An article by posted on April 15, 2009 0 Comments

This much we know about the Mets in 2009—the bullpen is improved, Johan appears to be on a Cy Young mission, and Daniel Murphy is a decent #2 hitter. We also know that the Mets can’t hit in the clutch, the numbers 2, 3 and 4 starters are huge question marks, and they have a knack for making huge mental mistakes at the worst possible times.

Get The Ball Rolling

Good morning Mets fans. Today we see Oliver Perez take the mound for the second time this season and I can only hope we see improvement like we did with Johan’s second start. His ability to maintain control was his downfall in the last start and I hope Jerry & Dan were able to correct […]

4/14 Minor League Report!

Buffalo 3, Scranton 5 in 11 innings Jon Niese’s second start of the season was a bit better then his first (not that that’s saying much…), he allowed 8 hits and 3 runs (2 earned, thanks to a PB and error by Omir Santos), over 5 innings. Eddie Kunz worked 3 scoreless innings behind Niese, […]

My Day At Citi Field

I had a different blog that I was going to do for my weekly piece but since last night was the first official game played at Citi Field and I attended the game I thought our readers would like an inside account of my experience at the new field.  For the last couple of years […]

4/13 Minor League Report! Fernando!

Buffalo 5, Scranton 6 Brandon Knight’s first start of the season was pretty bad, he surrendered 8 hits and 5 runs in 5 innings, though he did strike out 7. He escaped the loss because Kei Igawa pitched just as pitifully for the AAA Yankees (how big of a disaster was that signing, lol). Jon […]

Opening Night Is For Broadway

An article by posted on April 13, 2009 0 Comments

Opening Night is grand when it pertains to Broadway, but baseball is another story.Far be it from me to douse the flames of fervor, but the christening of Citi Field as the skies darken and the temps’ plummet is another in a long list of travesties perpetrated on the defenseless fans. We are treated more […]

4/12 Minor League Report! Calero!

Buffalo 4, Pawtucket 2 in 15 innings Boy, we’ve had some long games early this season. I believe a 14 inning affair for Savannah, now a 15 inning game in Buffalo, resulting in the Bisons first win. Nick Evans provided the heroics with his first hit of the season, a walkoff 2 run homer in […]

Is Santana Jinxed?

An article by posted on April 12, 2009 0 Comments

Okay, it’s a silly question, but it just seems he can never catch a break. We all know that a combination of an incredible error and absolutely no bat support did him in once again. How many times did we watch this scenario unfold in 2008! Admittedly, Josh Johnson is becoming Public Enemy #1 as […]
