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 [...]
The reason why I don’t get into the off-season that much or even Spring Training is because there’s so much more to what goes on behind the scenes than we ever know. I like to just pay attention, whatever happens, happens and I get ready for Opening Day and good times. However, this Mike Jacobs things has be going crazy. The Mets are in a unique situation this year. The team that “has no minor league [...]
It’s been a while since I posted here. One reason was my computer crashed and I couldn’t remember my login info, but the main reason was, I’m tired. You know, this past season more than any other I’ve learned to just throw my hands in the air and commit to watching 162 games a year, and hope to see October baseball. This year, more than any, I’ve paid close attention to the Hot Stove market, [...]
Dear Often Angry Mets Fan, I don’t know if the 2009 Mets season made me a tougher fan, or if writing for this blog site did, but man you need to quit crying. Let’s talk about reality for a second. The New York Mets cannot get every player in the MLBPA. It just can’t happen. John Lackey is reportedly getting a five year deal worth what, over 82 million dollars? Look, that is a LOT [...]
For most, this is your second favorite time of the year. There’s opening day, and then there’s the hot stove. I guess I’m in the minority; I’m usually very quiet during the off-season because frankly, I can’t stand the constant speculation. Fans don’t know what is going on behind closed doors, and reporters create news to keep their job. It’s kind of like the NFL Draft. Is Mel Kiper Jr. ever right about the NFL [...]
