I’m really trying my best to stay positive over the past month even though I have had plenty of good reasons to vent. Every time I see Rick Peterson make a call to the bullpen I can’t help being overcome with fear and anxiety. The bullpen has become so unreliable that even a 3 or 4 run lead has Mets fans wondering if the bullpen can close it out. Everyday it seems like they all [...]
Check out the patch the Mets will have on their uniform next year as they say their farewell to Shea Stadium. It’s pretty cool I think, and it does a great job of bringing together the present and the past of the place we’ve called home for over 40 years. I really look forward to seeing the Mets play in their new home Citi Field, but I am going to miss Shea Stadium very much. [...]
With our Magic Number down to 7 and only 8 games left to play, the Mets have one way of ensuring that they clinch a division title… Keep winning! The way the Phillies have been playing lately means that we can’t relax and hope that they lose 2 or 3 games down the stretch. They have a lot of fight and a lot of grit, and they don’t look like they are letting up anytime soon. [...]
I’m not ready to jump off a ledge just yet, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit scared right now. At a time when the Mets should be playing their best baseball, we have instead been witness to shoddy defense, horrendous relief pitching, and a lackluster approach at the plate. The Mets are reeling. Jose Reyes has become a liability in September, Carlos Delgado is still a no-show after a [...]
Yes folks, this is the last edition of the Minor League Report. I’ll just go through a quick recap of the teams that made the playoffs, and their results, and the records and such for the other teams. AAA – New Orleans Zephyrs The Zephyrs finished the regular season winning the PCL American South division with a 75-69 record. They faced the Nashville Sounds in the first round of the playoffs and defeated them winning [...]
A season can have several turning points or shifts in momentum. When the Mets win it all in 2007 and I look back and reflect on the season, the biggest turning point to me will be the sweep in Atlanta. I have read several articles and blogs which refer to the the disaster in Philly as the turning point for the Mets, but I beg to differ. That may have been a turning point for [...]
When the wrecking ball begins to lay waste to what once was heaven to millions of fans, it will not be a Mets baseball game that would have closed out the long and proud history of Shea Stadium. In fact, it will be the Piano Man, Billy Joel, who will preside over Shea Stadium’s final farewell. The native New Yorker will perform a string of concerts there shortly after the end of the Mets 2008 [...]
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 [...]
