I must say that I was disgusted this morning by an article I read in Newsday. It was written by Wallace Matthews, who decided to throw what little professionalism he had as a writer, out with the trash last night. I still can’t believe that a solid newspaper like Newsday allowed such a hate-filled tirade against the Mets to be printed in their paper. I think his article was degrading and insulting and sounded more like […]
The Mets recently granted free agency to pitcher Jon Adkins, who was one of the players that we received when we traded Royce Ring and Heath Bell to the San Diego Padres. Adkins wasn’t exactly terrible for New Orleans and posted a 3.99 ERA in 48 games, while posting a 2-4 record with 5 saves. The other player we received in that deal was outfielder Ben Johnson who had an injury plagued season in which he batted […]
Another day, another bunch of grades. Today we’re going to be grading the two Mets superstars: Jose Reyes and David Wright. I’m still going to grade them by position, even though Reyes and Wright spent 99% of the time at those position. Here we go! Shortstop (Jose Reyes) Ryan P. Well, from the beginning of the season to mid-August, Jose was lights out. He was batting around .300 with an OBP of .377. […]
Wow, I never really understood what that meant until last night when Joe Borowski set down the Yankees and the Cleveland Indians won the ALDS in dominating fashion. Watching the Yankees crash and burn in the ALDS for the third straight season, was like being wrapped in a warm comforter on a cold winter’s day. It felt wonderful. Now, along with the Phillies, the Yankees join the Mets in a long off season where each team […]
Today starts the first part of the Mets report cards. Six staff members for Mets Merized, including myself, each compiled a grade for each position and it’s respective player(s). Without futher ado, I present to you the Met Merized 2007 Report Cards. The first part will feature First Base and Second Base. First Base (Carlos Delgado and Jeff Conine) Ryan P. – 2007 wasn’t the brightest spot for the Mets. The players just […]
On Friday I took a look at all of the weaknesses the Mets needed to address this off-season, and focused on why they should re-sign both Luis Castillo and Paul Lo Duca. This morning I wanted to delve into the outfield situation. Let’s start with left field which was handled quite well by Moises Alou last season… when he was healthy. He had a consistent season for the Mets and batted .341 to lead the Mets, […]
With the first two considerable moves of the off-season now out of the way, the Mets are in full hot stove mode. With Tom Glavine declining his player option and Willie Randolph officially being retained, the Mets must now go about the business of filling some major flaws and in the process, resurrect the confidence of the fans which has been largely shattered. When you consider the dearth of talent in this year’s free agent […]
Before I start this off season debating, assessing, and blogging about the team, I must first address an issue that has bugged me all year long… I’m talking about the Mets cable network SNY. For months and months I have been bombarded with way too much Yankees coverage and not enough coverage of the team that pays the bills for that network, namely the Mets. I am sick of tired of seeing advertisements that feature Derek Jeter which […]
John Maine learned that he has been playing with a bad hip for most of the second half after receiving the results of an MRI. It may explain the big drop off in his performance shortly after the All-Star break. He will learn later today whether he will need surgery. If he does, it will not prevent him from being ready to go come Spring Training. Damion Easley expects to be running again and rehabbing next […]
