Oliver Perez took the mound today against the National League’s best starter, Tim Lincecum. Sometimes in a matchup like this, you’ll see some mediocre pitchers unfortunate enough to be in this matchup, at least elevate their performance somewhat. That wouldn’t be the case for Ollie as he delivered one of his worst performances of the season, lasting just 3 1/3 innings and allowing four runs while walking seven batters, throwing a wild pitch, and hitting one batter. It was […]
For the second time in two weeks, rookie first baseman Ike Davis makes a spectacular catch of a foul popup. The one he made in the ninth inning of tonight’s 6-4 win over the Giants was even better than his first effort. See what you think… What an amazing night for Ike as he continues to wow us with his poise at the plate and his sheer determination to win a game. So far, he […]
This morning, Steve Popper from The Record, shed some light on the shaky status of Mets outfielder Gary Matthews Jr.. He believes it might be a while before GMJ gets another start after an 0-for-4 night on Sunday that extended his struggles to 3-for-33 since opening day, and 3-for-34 after a pinch-hit groundout on Monday. It looks like Jerry Manuel could be growing weary of his lack of production. He alluded to the possibility that if something […]
Yesterday afternoon while scanning the channels on my TV, I surprisingly stumbled upon the SNY broadcast of yesterday’s Bisons’ game against the Louisville Bats. I had no idea that SNY even broadcasted these games, but was so glad to take in a minor league game and watch prospects like Dillon Gee and Jason Pridie. It was a great game that saw the Bisons come from behind and send the game into extra innings tied at 4-4. The contest ended dramatically […]
Gary Matthews Jr. who is batting .156 and slugging .219 in 16 games is starting in centerfield and worse yet leading off tonight. Even if you could make a case for batting GMJ over Angel Pagan, why would you bat him first? Ike Davis is also riding the pine tonight against left hander Jamie Moyer, even though he is batting .571 against southpaws. Fernando Tatis will be playing first base tonight instead. Does Jerry Manuel look at […]
At the end of spring training, Carlos Beltran said he wanted to begin running exercises in Port St. Lucie on April 10, and rejoin the Mets by at least early May, but after three weeks of Beltran’s self-imposed deadline he is still not close to returning. According to the New York Daily News Beltran was fitted for a custom knee brace last week in which he hoped would help accelerate his rehabilitation. That occurred during an April 20 visit to the […]
The fact that one of tomorrow’s starters is 4-0 with a 0.69 ERA and it’s not Roy Halladay shows just how far Mike Pelfrey has come in the first month of the season. Pelfrey knows that he will face his toughest test of this young season when the Mets face Halladay and the Phillies in the second game of the series. “I think sometimes, when you go against guys that are great, I think […]
“We’re playing pretty good baseball. I knew once those middle of the order guys hit, it could be a lot of fun. The good thing is we have won games when they haven’t hit; now that they’re hitting it’s more of an all inclusive thing.” ~ Jerry Manuel “It’s great to see that everybody is contributing to what we want to accomplish, which is to win games, as many games as possible.” ~ Johan […]
As the Mets’ bullpen has exceeded expectations in the early part of the season, the need for Jenrry Mejia seems to be diminishing, but Jerry Manuel remains adamant that the 20-year-old will be a bigger part of the pen rather than be pushed out and sent to tune up in the minor leagues for an eventual starting role. According to ProSportsDaily.com Manuel was asked if the emergence of Fernando Nieve in the pen could free up […]
