Welcome, Mets fans, to another edition of Hot or Not! Usually, this list is put into three categories: the players who are doing so amazingly well, the players who I feel are doing better than they were the week before, and the players who are slumping and could do a lot better (or the players who blow games in the bottom of the 13th). This week, I feel this list only needs two categories: the [...]
"The Mets have shown me more ways to lose than I even knew existed." Casey Stenegel said this more than 40 years ago, and it rings so true today. This season, we’ve probably seen the Mets lose in every possible way, plus a few additions. The Mets are currently going through a rough patch. In April, we weren’t really worried and we said to ourselves, "It’s only April. They’ll come around." As we approach Memorial Day weekend, the Mets currently [...]
Welcome back to the third installment of Hot or Not, the only list where you want to be in the hot seat. This week, I’ve had to consider many things besides from a player’s performance; otherwise the whole team would be Cold As Ice. Hot as FireMike Pelfrey: El Duque can take as long as he wants to recover thanks to Pelfrey. Although his record doesn’t reflect it, the Big Pelf has pitched some of [...]
I’m not going to try and write another blog about the struggles of the Mets. Keeping track of the wins and losses on my pocket schedule is painful enough. Clearly, something is "up" because of oh-too-familiar win one, lose one pattern of this entire month. I’m not going to go on about Mike Pelfrey’s gem of a loss, because we all know what happened. I’m not going to write about our inability to keep a winning [...]
Welcome back to another addition of Hot and Not. The Mets have shown great strides towards improvement, but they had good numbers against Brad Penny to begin with. Hopefully, they’ll sweep this doubleheader and they get the confidence they need. Who’s HotMoises Alou: Okay, so he’s only played in a couple of games. And he may need time to get his swagger back. But the man is certainly making up for lost time. Any 41-year-old who [...]
The most predominant question in my mind has been if the Mets have the fire within them to succeed. For whatever reason, to me, it seems like the Mets of September have simply just carried over into 2008. They’re not playing with the same zest and enthusiasm that they played with in 2006 and most of 2007. Obviously, the Mets do have a fire and a passion. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t even be playing [...]
Hey Mets fans, this is a new feature I will be doing every Saturday highlighting the best (and worst) of the week. Anybody (or any aspect) of the Mets can be hot (or not). Who’s HotRyan Church: So far, he has been the Mets MVP. Voting has started for the All-Star game and if anybody deserves a spot right now, it’s him. Currently batting a .324, Church leads the Mets offensively (but I didn’t really [...]
One of the few brighter spots in the Mets rotation this April has been Mike Pelfrey. Okay, so he’s not Johan Santana but he is 2-1 with a 4.43 ERA (and that’s only because of his last start against Atlanta, he let off 5 runs in 5.1 innings for those keeping score at home). We knew Pelfrey’s time had come but Willie was probably gonna use El Duque had he been healthy. After a dismal [...]
After sweeping the Nationals at home, the Mets are just an hour away from bringing that swagger and conifdence to Philadelphia. With first place on the line, the Mets have everything they need to climb into that position, if not tonight, then sometime this weekend. Our offense is coming around, the bullpen is getting better, Jose Reyes is smiling again, Jimmy Rollins is at his uncle’s funeral, and the defense isn’t half bad. Most importantly, just [...]
