I can’t begin to tell you how scared and helpless I felt as I watched David Wright lie still on the ground after being hit in the left temple by a 93-mph Matt Cain fastball. The force of the blow was so powerful that it knocked Wright’s batting helmet clean off his head and sent it veering toward the ground just ahead of Wright’s collapsing body. The ominous sound of the baseball and his helmet making impact […]
David Wright was drilled in the head by a 2-0 pitch thrown by Matt Cain in the bottom of the fourth inning during today’s game. Wright walked off the field under his own power, and Fernando Tatis replaced him as a pinch runner. An absolutely scary sight to say the least as Wright lied motionless on the ground for 2-3 minutes. It was a good sign that he walked off the field under his own power. […]
The Mets donned their throwback jerseys and defeated the San Francisco Giants by a score of 3-0 tonight at Citi Field. The Mets combined some solid pitching and timely hitting to win their second straight game. It was a nice way to start their longest homestand of the year. Bobby Parnell delivered an electrifying performance tonight as he held the Giants to just three hits, all singles, in six scoreless innings. Parnell threw 61 of his 86 pitches for […]
As I wrote back when the Mets first acquired him, the Mets were the big winners when they dumped the lackluster Church in exchange for the young righthanded former first rounder, Jeff Francoeur. About a week and a half later, I indicated that his recent hitting woes were simply a matter of making adjustments. Here is what I wrote on July 28th, In Francoeur, the Mets got themselves a player who already had two 100 […]
I’m hearing a lot of talk on sports radio today about Billy Wagner who had another perfect appearance in rehab and is set to be activated this Sunday. Most of the enthusiasm is centered around the chance that the Mets might be able to move him before the August 31st waiver deal deadline. I have no doubt that the Mets will try and get something in return for Wags, but some of the names I’m […]
It figures that the Mets would suddenly pick a random weekend in August to suddenly decide that they want to make Citi Field more Mets-centric or as we like to say, MetsMerized! With the team continuing to struggle and attendance sagging, the Mets are slashing ticket prices and giving Mets fans a new reason to come to the park. According to several sources, we will finally be able to see more tributes to Mets players […]
According to Matt Cerrone and Adam Rubin, Omar Minaya could be getting phased out in favor of John Ricco who is currently the Assistant GM of the Mets. They also speculate that there could be a swap of roles where Omar slips into a player development role, while Ricco becomes the front man. I’m no longer a big fan of Omar, as readers of this site fully know, but if we are going to replace […]
There’s a lot of talk regarding change these days in Mets circles. There’s talk of change at both the general manager and the team manager position too. One name that continues to popup is former Mets manager Bobby Valentine, who is suddenly very available. I know that there are still many Bobby Valentine fans out there, and that many of you would love to see him become manager of the Mets again if Jerry Manuel gets fired. […]
Brace yourself my friends… According to the Tyler Kepner of the New York Times, the White Sox have acquired Alex Rios from the Blue Jays. It’s a straight waiver claim, so the Blue Jays will receive nothing in return. Says Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi: “This allows us to get out from under a contract and do more to address our club.” ESPN is now confirming. Blue Jays outfielder Alex Rios has been claimed off waivers by […]
