It’s funny how sometimes a conversation opens your eyes to something and you just have to get it off your chest. We often here about how bad the Mets bullpen is. How it’s the worst in the league, and how Sandy Alderson did a terrible job at getting bullpen help. To me, I always thought that wasn’t true. Now I know it. The tricky thing about ranking bullpens is plenty of pitchers have appearances, usually […]
As you probably could have guessed, I’m not in favor of bringing Matt Harvey up right now. I think just as with the Upton discussion, too many people are quick to jump to the easy solution. The Mets can easily send some top prospects for Upton, that doesn’t mean there’s no negative side to the deal. The Mets can easily appease the fans and call up Harvey, but that doesn’t mean they should. The last […]
Last night, SNY announced the Mets All Time Greatest Players at each position over their entire franchise history, it got me to think about just how different we all are. Some of us lived through the Dodgers and Giants and welcomed in the new Mets because they couldn’t stand to root for the Yankees. Some of us started watching baseball because of the 1969 Mets. While others had early Mets memories dating to the mid […]
What could have turned into a disaster of a road trip, ended up being a memorable one. Everybody seems to be on cloud 9 after the sweep in Tampa Bay. Just as the Mets have had to forget about their poor outings and focus on the next game, they must forget about the sweep and worry about today. This team is tenacious. However, I feel they sometimes get a tad too comfortable in success. For […]
As the 2012 season continues, I am starting to think back to 2009 when many of us tossed everything off our desks and felt defeated after the Phillies acquired Roy Halladay. Fast forward to them “stealing” Cliff Lee, and were pegged the best rotation ever by some. Now, the Phillies are 29-33, sitting in last place in the NL East. About a week ago, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said “I thought we lost that edge […]
As I watched the Subway Series this weekend, I couldn’t help but feel disgust for the Mets bullpen. I know I’m not alone here. In terms of Rauch, Francisco and Ramirez, I felt that the “back of their baseball card,” was enough to make me feel okay about their acquisitions. I still think they are better than they are pitching, but it simply isn’t looking good right now. I wonder if the Mets didn’t acquire […]
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 […]
