About two weeks ago, I questioned if hype got the best of us with regards to Ike Davis. Today, I was hoping I’d write about how he has snapped out of it. The truth is, it’s time to go Ike. This is not about last night. I don’t think last night was a pack it in night as some seem to feel. It was a bad loss, we move on. This is about April-June 5. [...]
Tomorrow is June 1st, and with June comes the start of trade rumors galore. I’m not a big trade rumors guy to be honest. I think reporters do get valuable information, but I think so much changes on a day to day basis that trade talks can end before they are even reported. The Mets will wake up on June 1st as the 2nd National League wildcard team. Maybe I am crazy, but I think [...]
Memorial Day weekend is a great time for baseball. Families around the northeast will have their first traditional BBQ of the year. I love Memorial Day because (with respect to Gary Keith and Ron), I enjoy sitting outside and listening to the WFAN broadcast while enjoying some delicious BBQ. This weekend, the San Diego Padres head east to join the Mets for the start of the longest home stand of the season. This weekend will [...]
This evening, former Met Rusty Staub was joined by several Mets bloggers on a conference call. On June 2nd, the Mets 50th Anniversary Alumni Bobblehead series will feature Rusty Staub. The following day, Staub will be a judge during Banner Day! We were given a chance to ask Staub one question, so I decided to ask him about the relationship with a hitting coach during a slump, and what his thoughts on Ike Davis’ struggles [...]
Yesterday, Joe D posted some thoughts regarding sending Ike Davis down to the minor leagues. During the discussion I threw a thought out there. “What if Duda is the 1B of the future, and not Ike?” For the most part it got ignored, but after last night’s poor at bat as a pinch hitter, I still have to wonder. What if? What if all of us who desperately wanted another young star to call our [...]
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania…one of my all-time favorite cities, and home of one of the worst Mets memories of my life. It was September of 2006, my girlfriend and I had booked a trip to see the Mets face the Pirates long before the standings looked the way they did. As we walked the Clemente Bridge, you would have thought you were at Shea West. More Mets fans than Buccos fans, and what made it even more [...]
There’s nothing like a little controversy to keep us all busy for the next 6+ hours before first pitch tonight huh? Doesn’t it seem like whenever the Mets lose the final game of a series, there is always that “how will they bounce back from ____?” Whether it be a bullpen disaster, injuries, or a dispute in the dugout. They always make it interesting don’t they? Tonight, the odd 2 game NL Central theme continues. [...]
There will be a special Meet and Greet with the Binghamton Mets on Monday, May 21, at 5:30 pm at New Britain Stadium before the start of the game at 6:35 pm. It is a great opportunity to meet the top prospects in the Mets farm system as they make their way to the big leagues! If that wasn’t enough, there will be an all you can eat buffet for $10. For more info, check [...]
I’m not sure who is feeling better today, the Mets players or their fans? Sure, the Phillies didn’t have Howard or Utley, but they had Halladay and Lee and the Mets still swept them in Philadelphia! Before the Arizona series, I explained how I thought that series through the Toronto series were going to tell us a lot about this Mets team. So far, they are 5-1, and have 10 more games to go. After [...]
