What can you say about David Wright that hasn’t been said already? He continues to improve in ways that we as Mets fans have never been accustomed to. In many ways he is absolutely perfect in his on the field and off the field persona. Thanks to Wright’s four hit performance last night, the Mets find themselves all alone in first place in the National League East. I’m betting that they stay in first place […]
Exactly what does Fernando Tatis have to do to before the Mets realize that he is a better option off the bench than Brady Clark? So far, Tatis acted like a good soldier and accepted his minor league assignment to New Orleans with grace and dignity. I thought he should have won a job out of Spring Training, but for whatever reason Brady Clark beat him out because of his versatility. (What versatility?) Fernando Tatis […]
Who says Carlos Beltran is not a leader? Last night Keith Hernandez said, "Just because you have a fiery personality, it does not make you a leader". He was referring to Carlos Beltran when he said it, and it’s not the first time our former team captain referred to Beltran as a leader in the clubhouse. Beltran has taken a long time to become a fan favorite, mostly due to an injury marred first season. However, […]
An interesting side note to today’s game that was reported by Jim Baumbach of Newsday. He writes… I also spoke with Brian Schneider about his trouble with catching the ball – he said he was using a new glove model this year for the first time in 10 or 11 years, and he never got comfortable with it. He said it got to the point where catching the ball became something he was thinking about, […]
No sooner than being dropped to the number eight spot in the lineup due to a prolonged slump, Luis Castillo was hinting that he needs more time off to heal. The New York Post writes that when asked if he needs some time off, Castillo said: "Sometimes, I do. When I play three or four games in a row, maybe I can get a day off. I’m going to talk to Willie about it." Last […]
What a way to open a series! There were so many bright spots in this game I don’t know where to begin, but let me start with Mike Pelfrey who pitched a gem tonight at Shea Stadium. Pelfrey’s fastball was popping and his slider was devastating to the Nationals hitters. He pitched seven solid innings allowing no runs on five hits and striking out four. In the third inning he got into trouble by loading […]
Pun aside, David Wright has shown to be the leader everyone has expected him to be. Ever since his first at-bat in 2004 for the Mets, Met fans know that this guy has what it takes to be the leader for this team. The 25-year old All-Star will most likely be named Captain of the Mets, but the question is, "When?" There is no doubt in my mind that Wright will be named Captain. If […]
Mets losses always get me to start thinking and yes even overreacting. I was wondering about a few things while I watched the game, and I wanted to discuss one of them with you. Last season we had to switch the 3-4-5 spots in the batting order because of Delgado’s slump. Now that he is hitting the heck out of the ball again, should we revert back to a 3-4-5 of Beltran, Delgado, and Wright? […]
The usually mild mannered Willie Randolph, was anything but that during his post game press conference this afternoon. A visibly distraught Randolph was as critical of his team’s performance than at any time since he took control of the team. “That put a damper on a nice off-day, huh? Jeez,” Randolph said after the Mets fell below .500 (5-6) with an overall ugly display at Shea. “Hitting into five double plays is what happens when […]
