There has been a lot of talk about what to do with Jenrry Mejia. Do the Mets send him to the minor leagues and start to stretch him out to become a starting pitcher? Do they keep him in the bullpen and hope he matures in the major leagues? After Francisco Rodriguez’s best attempt to allow the Yankees to have yet another Subway Series moment, I’ve decided what the future should hold for Mejia. This [...]
You always hear about struggling teams calling a “players only meeting,” right before they fall off the cliff. If you have the right people in the clubhouse, this moment can make or break your season. I’m of the belief that you don’t call a player’s meeting unless you have your #1 or #2 starting pitchers going that night. This way if something doesn’t click in the meeting, you still have the artificial result by 1 [...]
I’ve never been a huge David Wright fan. That’s not to say I dislike him, not at all. I just have never owned a Wright t-shirt, and never been a “Wright Guy.” Truth be told, I’m a Reyes guy. Just as I did last year, I’m asking the Mets and the fan base to let David be David. So far, none of what I wrote about Jose has really happened, so I don’t expect this [...]
This will be my final defense in the case of Omar Minaya versus the NY Mets fan base. Last night, I wrote an article where I explained why it’s time for Jerry Manuel to be let go. There is a difference to me between wanting a manager fired in May because the team lost a game and wanting a manager fired when you feel he’s just out there guessing. I can deal with losses. I [...]
So I spent the weekend away, away from the internet and for the most part away from the Mets outside of highlights on the MLB Network in the morning. Oh, by the way. Personal endorsement. If you have the option to watch MLB Network’s Quick Pitch or MLB Tonight instead of Sportscenter/Baseball Tonight. Do yourself a favor and flip to the MLB Network. Their coverage of the sport far surpasses any agenda ESPN seems to [...]
This won’t be that long of a blog, I swear. Considering right now I’m home early from work and it’s 4-4 in the game, I’m sure most if not anybody reading this is doing so with GameCast on at work or sitting in front of their home television. This is about the Philadelphia Phillies. You know, anybody I know who is a Phillies fan tries to discredit any belief about their fan base or their [...]
Why is it that whenever the 2010 Mets win a baseball game, I feel like our fan base reenacts the final scene to “40 Year Old Virgin,” to the tune of Age of Aquarius? Then, whenever the 2010 Mets lose a baseball game, our fan base does their best Ghostbusters impression? What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor. Real wrath of God type stuff! Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and [...]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Henry Blanco has been placed on the bereavement list which has forced the Mets to call Josh Thole up to fill his roster spot. Thole has struggled in AAA posting a .203 AVG with 1 HR and 10 RBI in 21 games for Buffalo. It will be interesting to see if Thole gets a start in this series versus Washington, one would assume if he does, it’ll [...]
You wouldn’t know it by looking at the fan base’s reaction today, but the Mets have started their home stand with a series victory. The Mets are 17-14, and will face the identical 17-14 Nationals this week in a series where one team could be proven a phony, while the other could be proven to have larger issues than we all feared. These are not your lay down and die Nationals. While their pitching doesn’t [...]
For starters let’s all take a moment to thank the baseball God’s that Matt Cain is not pitching in this series, and because of that David Wright shouldn’t have to answer more than 1 question about the head hunting incident. *pause* End scene. So moving on, the NY Mets stumble home and do their best impersonations of a 2 a.m. “walk of shame.” This series against the Giants begins an absolutely brutal stretch of games [...]
There’s no possible way I could’ve let this go without a quick blog. This is for all of those fans out there that have called sabermetrics crap when referencing OBP. I still don’t get that really since OBP wasn’t invented with sabermetrics. ESPN did a poll of 100 MLB Players. They asked the players 20 quick questions, allowing them to remain anonymous. Now for the readers out there that say they never look at OBP, [...]
