Adam Rubin of the Daily News had an interesting side note to his article this morning… Met starters are averaging 5.8 innings through the first 19 games. Met relievers have made 70 appearances out of the pen through the first 19 games. Last season the Met bullpen logged one appearance shy of 500 for the year. This year, they are on pace to make 597 trips to the mound if this keeps up. It’s still […]
Sometimes logic eventually prevails when it comes to the New York Mets. In a surprise move, Willie Randolph finally dropped Carlos Delgado down to sixth in the order. It was a move that Mets fans have been screaming for on Mets blogs everywhere. Ryan Church will step in at bat fifth behind cleanup hitter Carlos Beltran. This may only be temporary as the Mets expect to activate Moises Alou from the DL some time this […]
At least that’s what Joe Benigno of WFAN says. This morning after his opening monologue, he made a good case for his assertion. Why did Willie Randolph go out of his way to burn up Jose Reyes after the Cubs finale regarding the play where he threw the ball home and got an out? Reyes might have been able to go for the double play, but he played it safe instead and threw the ball home and got the sure […]
As much as I love Willie, sometimes I just have to question his logic. Case in point yesterday’s game against the Cubs… The Mets have just lost two heart breaking games and they surely needed a win in the finale against the Cubs. Why on earth would you pick that game to rest Ryan Church? Church is currently one of your best and most consistent bats in the lineup and his defense in rightfield has […]
Where will the the saga of Carlos Delgado take us this year? It’s a long story, so you better grab a seat and sit yourself down for a spell. The tale begins in April of last season, and takes us back to the old days of the "Wild, Wild West", when a town would hire themselves a gunslinger to help rid the town of all the riff-raff and make it respectable again. Carlos Delgado was brought in to be […]
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, […]
