Time does not heal all wounds. The pain of what happened on September 11th, 2001 has not subsided. We can put the tragedy of what took place on that day out of our minds, but we can never put it out of our hearts. Every single day, Americans are still dying because of 9/11. Their lives continue to raise the death toll of that tragic day. What started out as 3,000 lives lost, has now [...]
I had one of those mornings this morning… I think it was because I didn’t have any coffee. Hey, I can’t wait to see Pedro take the mound tomorrow afternoon at Shea. Yesterday he said he feels sharper than he did during his first start and that he expects to throw more pitches than the 76 he threw against the Reds. I think Carlos Delgado is snake bit or something… The only two times this [...]
It’s still to early to say who will win the National League MVP in 2007, but one player who is starting to get some much deserved attention, is New York Mets third baseman, David Wright. Back in April and May when Wright was enduring one of the longest slumps in his career, nobody could have imagined that he would bounce back so strong that he would find himself among the top ten in almost every offensive category. Nobody [...]
Matt over at Metsblog had a very telling statistic on his site today. Apparently, Howard Johnson is having a great impact as hitting coach for the Mets. Check out what Matt wrote… Prior to Rick Down being fired as the team’s batting coach, the Mets hit .268 as a team, .252 with runners in scoring position, while they have reached base roughly 33 percent of their plate appearances. Meanwhile, since Howard Johnson was hired as [...]
Mets starting catcher Paul Lo Duca is this years nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award. As explained on mlb.com, each of Major League Baseball’s 30 teams has one nominee, and Lo Duca has distinguished himself among the Mets for this year’s nod. This special award recognizes the player who best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team. It is named in honor of the former Pirates outfielder [...]
Looks like the news on Carlos Delgado is much worse than first reported. Mets.com is now reporting that first baseman, Carlos Delgado will miss a week to ten days due to a strained right hip flexor. Delgado underwent a magnetic resonance imaging test on Wednesday after feeling a twinge in his right hip while swinging at a pitch during the eighth inning of New York’s 11-7 win over the Reds on Tuesday. Not exactly the [...]
I don’t think so, but many others do, including some of the players and people in the front office. Here is what Joel Sherman of the New York Post wrote in his column… There have been rumblings of dissatisfaction for Randolph both in the front office and in the clubhouse. Four different major-league sources said Mets upper management has expressed concerns about Randolph both tactically and in failing to get his team to play with [...]
I think Willie Randolph finally gets it. After an entire season of hearing Randolph apologizing for his bullpens deficiencies, and sugar coating every single blown save and single missed opportunity, it has finally dawned on him that his bullpen in fact, very unreliable and very ineffective. On Friday night, in a game that the Mets had to absolutely win, that fact became clearly evident to everyone watching. With the Mets up 4-0 in the sixth [...]
It took what seemed like an eternity, but Pedro Martinez is finally back! He is slated to start on Monday unless he feels sluggish tomorrow after todays bullpen session. Pedro said "If my arm doesn’t fall off, I will pitch on Monday." he also said "I miss my teammates, I can’t stand to be one more day without my team." He had a very impressive bullpen session that featured an assortment of curve-balls, change-ups, and a [...]
When Willie Randolph has Rick Peterson make a call to the bullpen, it has become a vicious game of "Choose Your Poison." It’s like playing "Russian Roulette" with six bullets in your six shooter. "Omar Minaya and Willie Randolph have to assume the blame." That is what Ed Coleman from WFAN had to say. It was a poorly constructed bullpen that began when Omar Minaya decided to give Guillermo Mota the contract that should have gone [...]
I thought I would share some of our recent comments and emails with you. None of it may mean much, but it does show the level of anxiety shared by most Mets fans this morning. Not a good week so far for our Mets. I am not happy with Willie Randolph for sending Wagner out for a second inning. He had already given up a homerun in the 8th. Instead I would have went to Heilman [...]
