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 […]
I apologize for the awful play on words, but can anyone dispute the fact that El Duque DOES give his opponents bloody hell? Of course you can’t! El Duque has been "all that and a bag of chips" for the Mets this season, and he has become the unofficial ace of the pitching staff. Would I be stretching the truth if I said that signing El Duque to a 2-year contract in the off season, […]
Those words may have become a standard in baseball, but not to Kevin Kernan of the New York Post. According to him… It is over! So at 6:47 last night when Aaron Heilman got Luis Gonzalez to bounce into a 1-6-3 double play to give the Mets a 4-3 win over the Dodgers at sweaty Shea Stadium, the NL East race came to a close. Sure, there are magic numbers ahead and the official champagne […]
It looks like Endy Chavez will not get activated today after all. It seems that he will instead be playing in another rehab game for Binghamton this afternoon. I have no idea why the Mets are biding their time. My guess is that they are torn between sending Lastings Milledge back to the minors, or cutting one of their relievers, probably, Aaron Sele. Look for the conclusion to this drama to unfold some time in the […]
As the Mets get ready to sink the Dodger’s post season ambitions, check out what frustrated manager, Grady Little, had to say after the game. His reply was to a question that asked what went wrong in the first two games in the series against the Mets. His reply ends up being a back-handed compliment of David Wright, and a punch to the gut of his own team. "We have struggled with (key) at-bats a […]
Paul Lo Duca is getting back into the swing of things while rehabbing in St. Lucie. He appeared in both games of a double header last night while making his first rehab appearances. He caught five innings for Brooklyn and went 0-for-2 with a walk in the first game, and in the second game, he served as the DH and went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer. He is expected to be activated on Monday and I assume […]
MLB.com reports that Yankees slugger Jason Giambi won’t face any disciplinary actions from Major League Baseball for his comments about his own use of performance-enhancing drugs, which received wide circulation in May, Commissioner Bud Selig said Thursday. "I’m happy with it," Giambi said in New York before the Yankees started a four-game series with the Tigers. "Now I can move forward and not hurt the ballclub by taking a suspension or anything like that." I […]
Mike Vaccaro of the NY Post asks the tough questions this morning. Questions that only the Mets can answer. Every few weeks, you keep waiting for the shock to the system that will finally apply the kick-start necessary for the Mets to achieve the manifest destiny in the NL East everyone seems to expect of them. The first three series losses to the Braves didn’t do it. The 4-14 death march through June didn’t do […]
Did anyone happen to catch Willie Randolph’s interview last night on SNY’s Geico Post Game?? The reporters who were asking the questions really got his temperature boiling especially on one particular question that was asked… Is your team approaching this as a big series, because it seems like the Braves are, and you’re not? What followed next was a clearly infuriated Randolph trying to diffuse a question that clearly struck at the heart of his […]
