I have completely had it with this roster. I am tired of same old tired players playing the same old tired baseball. It’s not that I don’t like guys like Damion Easley, Marlon Anderson, Moises Alou, and all the other tired old veterans, I just think we have too many players like this. I feel like we went from having one Julio Franco in 2006 to a dozen of them in 2008. I just can’t take [...]
Wow, todays match-up between Brandon Webb (11-2) and Mike Pelfrey (2-6) really shows the disparity between a great team and a team who thinks they’re great. It just seems like the Mets keep finding ways to lose, while teams like the Phillies and the Diamondbacks keep finding ways to win. I really feel bad for David Wright who is always at his locker after each game trying to explain why his team is so abysmal. [...]
This morning, John Delcos from the Journal News raised a few questions. Questions that are already on the minds of Mets fans. Questions that only the Mets can really answer. When does it stop being early? When does the disclaimer there’s a lot of season left begin to lose its credibility? I don’t even pretend to know the answers, but I do know the urgency to start winning has never been greater for the Mets. [...]
Round 1 – Pick 18 – IKE DAVIS, 1B/OF, Arizona State Baseball America: The son of former big league reliever Ron Davis, Ike was not a scouts’ favorite coming into his junior season. A decorated high school career that included a star turn with Team USA’s youth national squad and an MVP award at the 2004 Aflac Classic, and his pitching family pedigree, had most scouts regarding him as a pitcher out of high school. He [...]
He was selected in the third round of the 1997 First-Year Player Draft. Christopher Louis Aguila graduated from McQueen High School (NV) in 1997. While in McQueen, he set the single-season home run record. Although. Aguila may not be a prospect, he is showing signs he belongs with the big club. The 29-year-old outfielder played for the Marlins from 2004-2006 and the Pirates minor leagues in 2007. The Mets signed him in March has been [...]
Seeing the Marlins occupying the top spot in the N.L. East the last few weeks hasn’t really bothered me all that much so far this season. However, for one very brief day I saw the Phillies in first place last week and I was seeing red… Not Phillies red…. There was blood in my eyes… I still haven’t gotten over them taking the division away from us last season, and while I can respect the [...]
The Mets capped off what started out as a very tenuous homestand with a great win on Sunday night before a national audience that saw them take 3 out of 4 games from the Los Angeles Dodgers after a convincing 6-1 victory. Johan Santana started for the Mets and performed every bit like the ace the Mets had hoped for tonight with a solid effort that saw him pitch all the way into the eight inning. [...]
Some time next week the Mets should be activating Moises Alou from the disabled list. It most likely means the end of the road for Nick Evans who would assuredly be the player who Alou will replace on the roster. We’ll see Evans again in the future, but clearly he needs more seasoning and more everyday playing time in the minors for now. Maybe the next time Alou gets injured, we can catch a glimpse of [...]
I’ve seen enough of Damion Easley, Fernando Tatis and Marlon Anderson before he got injured, to know that we can and should do better than Carlos Delgado at first base. His slump is not technically a slump. Slumps don’t last two years. Delgado is in steep decline and the sooner the Mets realize it, the better it will be for the team. Carlos Delgado is one of the biggest reasons for this team’s lackluster performance [...]
