When Angel Pagan hit the game winning single in the bottom of the 12th inning yesterday, it marked the first time I was excited for the Mets, and I mean really excited for the Mets, since Johan Santana opened up the season in Miami. Really though, the Mets were playing Triple-A players and Hanley Ramirez at best. The true tests, Atlanta and Philadelpia came and went. The Mets went 2-3 in those five games. The […]
Okay, okay, another "Johan is great" post that’s probably three days late. But with good reason. I didn’t want to write a blog entry that said: "Johan’s awesome!!!! He struck out 8 Marlins!!!! Mets are going all the way!!!!" There’s more to Johan Santana than his strikeout-to-walk ratio. Or the number of innings he pitches. Or even how many wins he earns for the Mets. On Monday, I made the drive from Fort Myers to Miami to […]
The Mets have not decided on a fifth starter this far into Spring Training. They’re saying Jorge Sosa may get the job, with both Brian Stokes and Joe Smith able to prove themselves worthy of the bullpen. Both Mike Pelfrey and El Duque aren’t ready to start, but I think Pelfrey will be ready before El Duque. I hope they at least give Nelson Figueroa a spot in the bullpen. He has performed consistently throughout […]
Okay, so it was bound to happen….Moises Alou got hurt. We all knew it was gonna happen. Okay, so maybe Omar didn’t know when he picked up Alou’s option, but that’s beside the point. Brian Schneider has a tight hammie. Ryan Church and Marlon Anderson collided, with Church still experiencing symtoms of his Grade 2 concussion. Luis Castillo is recovering from double knee surgery. Allegedly, so is Carlos Beltran, but I think it’s because Johan […]
David Wright recently said that he believes the Phillies are still the team to beat <cue Jimmy Rollins>. "Philadelphia took care of us last year," he said, "They took care of business in the division. Going into this year, we have to take control again in the NL East." While I love David, I’m going to amend this quote: We need to take control against the PHILLIES. The Phillies are the ones we lost 10 games […]
Okay, okay, okay. So the recent hype has been about the Mets acquiring Johan Santana for Carlos Gomez, Mike Pelfrey, Philip Humber, Deolis Guerra, Kevin Mulvey, and 19-year-old phenom outfielder Fernando Martinez. I wouldn’t complete this deal if I was Omar Minaya. Fernando Martinez has the potential to be a star when he comes up. He just needs more time in the minors and will hopefully be around for opening day 2009. Carlos Gomez is […]
While rumors are swirling about the Mets actually being in the Johan Santana race, I don’t want to give up the New Orleans Zephyrs to ultimately spend $200 million on Santana. Sorry ’bout that. I want Carlos Gomez; we’d be unstoppable when it comes to stealing bases. I want Philip Humber; we haven’t really seen much of him but I could see him as either a future starter or a long reliever. I want Mike Pelfrey; […]
It is probably very hard…wait…it is very hard to be Omar Minaya right now. But watching the Diamondbacks aquire Dan Haren from the Athletics and then trade Jose Valverde to the Astros makes me wonder: what is Omar doing? Or not doing? We could have had Dan Haren, or at the very least Joe Blanton. And it would have cost us Lastings Milledge. I understand that if Billy Beane wanted to make a deal, he would […]
The Mets, right now, are in a holding pattern. Nothing has happened. Nothing. If something had happened, I’d be writing about that instead. So, as a little treat, I have compiled my thoughts of this off season and hopefully, you will find it funny. -I’m really gonna miss Lastings Milledge and Paul Lo Duca. It seems like if you argue with an umpire and actually show some passion, then you’re gonna get kicked off the […]
