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 [...]
The "Force" was clearly not with the Mets last night as they lost their third straight game in this series and their fourth straight overall. The umpires have been a big factor in each game, and clearly, the majority of the calls have gone against the Mets. Last night’s call by second base umpire, CB Bucknor, kept the Mets from scoring the tying run and snuffed out a would-be comeback from the Mets. The call [...]
Here are the results of last weeks poll question which asked the question: Do You Want Guillermo Mota On The Post Season Roster? I’m sure it would surprise nobody that an overwhelming 58% of you said NO WAY. I wonder if any of you voted again after last nights debacle? Only 9% of you said that you DEFINITELY wanted Mota to pitch in the post season. A number that I still feel was WAY to high. [...]
It’s been a long and bumpy ride all season long for the Mets’ long list of would-be number five starters. It started out with so much hope and promise after Mike Pelfrey won the job coming out of Spring Training, but after quickly falling to 0-6, a poorly executed game of musical chairs began. The Mets have lacked a true ace all season long. A true stopper, if you will. It’s prevented the Mets from [...]
Once again, Adam Rubin of the Daily News, took some time to answer a few questions for Mets Merized Online. Adam is the Mets’ beat writer, and is also the author of the book "Pedro, Carlos and Omar." 1. It seems like the Mets’ chances of securing the NL East title, have gotten a lot better with the addition of Luis Castillo, and the healthy returns of Moses Alou and Carlos Beltran. What is the feeling in the clubhouse with most of [...]
The race for the NL East is slowly drawing to an end. The Phillies and Braves are losing steam, and well, we just keep winning. Before Saturday, the Mets scored 5 runs or more in 12 consecutive games. That’s insane for a team who has had several key players out with injuries. The success from players David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes, Luis Castillo, and Moises Alou have really jump-started the team’s chances to lock in [...]
