Almost to the exact day as last year, the Mets find themselves again on the verge of elimination at the hands of the Florida Marlins. What is it about the Mets that can energize and motivate a team like the Marlins to deriving such pleasure from delivering the final blow to the Mets? Former Mets catcher and current Marlin, Paul LoDuca believes it’s not really the Mets player’s attitudes like so many believe. “It’s a low [...]
Here we go Mets fans! It’s been quite a year of ups and downs for the Mets, but we are still alive and well and that’s all that matters. The Mets enter the final three games in second place and only one game behind the Philadelphia Phillies. They are in a flat-footed tie with the Brewers for the Wild Card spot. Wow, I can’t believe it comes to this… Here are the probable pitchers for [...]
Last night’s loss will reverberate with this team for a long time. It may just have been the most demoralizing loss of the season. It was clearly a maddening display of poor execution at the plate and a lack of pure baseball instincts and intellect. David Wright swinging wildly at ball four in the ninth inning with the winning run only 90 feet away is an image I won’t soon forget. With the Mets tied, and young [...]
I keep waiting for something positive to happen… I’m looking for a sign… An omen… Anything… What can I say about Jon Niese? Last week against Atlanta I was so wowed by him I couldn’t stop talking about him for days on end. Now, I don’t know what to say. Seeing him serve up that grand slam to the opposing pitcher, Jason Marquis… well let’s just say I knew it was over right there and then. [...]
If the season ended today, the Mets would be on their way to the post season… So why am I so down? Scott Schoeneweis, was speechless after yesterdays loss. “There’s no explanation anymore. I just don’t know what to say. We’re not consistently making big pitches at big times. We do it one night, we don’t do it the next night. There’s really nothing more to say or explain or philosophize about.” What a loser… We’ve [...]
The more I see of Pedro Martinez, the more I worry about whether he is going to be a strong option as a starter for the Mets in the post season. Pedro’s days of dominating hitters are long gone, but I still figured he would give us a quality start whenever he took the mound. I never expected him to go from great to… well… to mediocre. And I’m being kind. It’s no wonder why everyone who’s who in [...]
The Mets won a coin toss against the Brewers today to determine home-field advantage for a potential one-game wild card playoff between the two teams. If the Mets and Phillies tie for first place and have better records than the runners-up in the other divisions, then the Mets will be the NL East champions based on their 11-7 head-to-head record against the Phillies, who would take the Wild Card. There would be no need for [...]
As reported in the Buffalo News, the Buffalo Bisons have called a press conference for Monday morning in Dunn Tire Park to officially announce the New York Mets will be their new parent club next season. “This is great news for Buffalo sports fans. The Mets and Bisons are a natural marriage, and one that I believe will last a very long time. I encouraged the Mets to affiliate in New York State and I’m [...]
The Mets overcame some shoddy defense to come back and beat the Braves by a score of 9-5 thanks to a huge pinch hit two-run double by rookie sensation Dan Murphy. The game started out with Jose Reyes hitting a leadoff first inning homerun to put the Mets up early, but it soon became clear this game was going to be a wild one. Oliver Perez actually pitched a great game going six innings and [...]
