Exit Starting Pitcher, Enter Heartbreak

An article by posted on September 19, 2008

A little less than two years ago, the Mets bullpen was heralded as the most elite in the National League. It was set up perfectly and had all of the elements that constructed an ideal committee to spell the tired starting pitching staff. My how times have changed! When a starter visibly didn’t have his stuff […]

Reyes and Righties

An article by posted on September 18, 2008

Just another September in Flushing, and we’re in the midst of a struggle between the lines. Every night brings minor strokes and heart attacks to the life of every Mets fan. Last night, it was stated that Jose Reyes has not been feeling comfortable at the plate against the left-handed pitchers. That gives a huge explanation as to […]

Different Season, Different Mets

An article by posted on September 10, 2008

Ok Mets fans, here we are in the middle of a pennant race, and I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely loving it!  I know that sounds like a plug for Mickey D’s, but this really is great!  In a way, part of me awaits the day when the Mets clinch (at home, of course) and […]

An article by posted on September 8, 2008

After yesterday’s doubleheader split, the Mets have 19 games remaining to decide who wins the NL East. They are currently in first place and by two games. More importantly, the Mets have the advantage of winning the head to head matchup with the Phillies this year after finishing 11-7 in the season series. This statistic if extremely […]

The calendar has turned to the point that proved to be the demise of the 2007 New York Mets. September has arrived once again, after an offseason filled with questions of a possible mental hangover, the Mets of this campaign appear poised to lay those demons to rest.

A Field Goal Up.

An article by posted on September 4, 2008

Three up on the Phillies in the NL East with 22 left to play. Not in as good shape (standings-wise) than the 2007 Mets at this time. At this time last year, the Mets had a stronger lead in the NL East.  However, last year, at this point, the writing was on the wall.  2007 […]

Random Thoughts On A Sunday Afternoon

An article by posted on August 31, 2008

With every game that passes, a Met fan’s life expectancy drops three years during this divisional race. Why did the Little League World Series championship team from Hawaii look like nine Shane Victorino’s running around out there last week? Seriously, one is enough! Since when does, A.) a bunion sideline you for an entire season, and B.) surgery […]

Reeling In Reyes

An article by posted on August 28, 2008

Two times last night, Jose Reyes was doubled-up off of first base after a flyball was caught in the outfield. Fortunately for Jose and the Mets, Ryan Howard was unable to handle the first ball (or his glove for that matter), and Jose returned safely to first base. This first inning blunder could have cost […]

Easley Done

An article by posted on August 27, 2008

While there were a few bright spots in last night’s Mets loss to the Phillies, one particular thing stands out in my mind.  Forgive me for not being able to recall the inning, but Damion Easley was at the plate, with a chance to hit for the cycle (only needing a double), and with Jose […]
