Today you’re going to hear a lot about Rod Barajas’ On Base Percentage. Let me start by saying, I am and will be a 100% supporter of Barajas. He does a lot of things that a stat cannot tell you. If the only options were Barajas or Molina, Molina is obviously better defensively but Barajas seems to fit this team quite nicely. With that said, when you rely solely on team chemistry to guide you [...]
Up until a few days ago, we Mets fans were in heaven on earth. Mets in first, Yanks in 2nd. How could it be any better? I never really understood the fascination with caring about the Yankees record to be honest. I don’t get giddy over the Subway Series either. I worry about Philadelphia-Atlanta-Florida-Washington. I will say this though; I kind of enjoy this Javier Vazquez saga. I mean, we all know the Yankees are [...]
You know as if I didn’t wake up today in a worse mood. I’m an NHL Penguins fan and a Mets fan of course, so yesterday was on all accounts, a bad sports day. Today, I read two posts on our site describing in great detail why basically Jerry Manuel deserves to take the heat for yesterday’s loss. I have gone to other sites, seen the same thing, and I am sure without tuning into [...]
So here we are, less than 24 hours removed from as tough of a loss to swallow as any we’ve had so far in 2010. There is one positive thing to note from Sunday’s loss. We don’t have to listen to Miller & Morgan talk about the Mets until the Yankees come to town on May 23rd. Nor do we have to listen to McCarver any time soon. Just a nice heaping serving of our [...]
There are few things in life I dislike more than Philadelphia sports teams. I dislike the guy who tells a little kid there’s no Santa less than I dislike Philly sports teams. I dislike Global Warming less than I dislike Philly teams. I dislike close-talkers less than I dislike Philly sports teams. I find Yanni and Desperate Housewives to be more likeable… than Philly sports teams. Finally, yes…I even dislike the NY Yankees LESS than I dislike Philly [...]
Before you jump to post a comment about how you hate Sabermetrics, or how you find them useless. Please at least read this? For starters, I’m terrible at Math. It was my worst subject in school, and I literally had zero interest in it unless it revolved around baseball stats. I don’t read about Sabermetrics, I don’t go to church on Sunday and pray to the God that is Bill James, and I don’t think [...]
Jeez, I almost forgot that it was my job to write series previews! Talk about having to get used to that and quick! Luckily for me and my responsibilities here, the Mets were rained out last night after a rain shortened victory against the Atlanta Braves. Man, is there nothing worse than a rain out? The only positive thing was I got to bang through a bunch of TV Shows we have on DVR. Between [...]
From this point on I’ll be focusing on two kinds of blogs. The first and most important will be the upcoming series preview. I’ve never done a series preview before; I toiled with game previews while our buddy Elliot was away last summer. So stick with me, if I’m brutal at the start, just think of me as the Mets middle of the order. (Getting off to a slow start) The second obviously is [...]
News from Adam Rubin is that the Mets have designated Mike Jacobs for assignment to make room for Tobi Stoner for tonight’s game. First, lets begin with this. Thank God. I’ve never hidden the fact I was against Mike Jacobs being on this team. He is a professional strikeout hitter who if he’s lucky gets 20 good at bats where he hits the ball out of the park. I’ve never been a fan of somebody [...]
Opening Day is a new beginning, whether you’re optimistic or pessimistic, it should be a day to celebrate the potential that your team could have a great season. It should be a day to enjoy the game you love, and say goodbye to the dreary winter months. Your team gets introduced for the first time, and if you’re lucky, you’re at the 1st home game of the year to show your support for your team! [...]
You’ve heard me say it, and I still think it’s true. I think last year humbled me a bit as a Mets fan, and a baseball fan. Now I’m not saying I’m going to sit quiet, not complain, or not get into a daily debate with Bayonne over the value of getting on base as opposed to the sacrifice fly (zing!) What I mean is, I think for the past 3 years the off-season has [...]
