It’s September 4th, and the Orioles find themselves one game out of first place in the American League East. That statement, on it’s own, isn’t too ridiculous. It’s when you start looking at the stats that make that statement look ridiculous. The Orioles are not a good baseball team according to the stats. In fact, if you were to look at the league statistical rankings, before looking at the standings, you would think they stink. […]
When I first started to write this piece about a week ago, it was going to be about why Daniel Murphy is not the answer at second base for the Mets. I questioned why some Mets fans are obsessed with this player that was, to me at least, a fringe major leaguer at best. I argued that he wouldn’t even start for the majority of major league teams. I proclaimed if you are going to […]
Adam Rubin of ESPN recently tweeted that he spoke to Hairston, and although Hairston doesn’t know who claimed him off of waivers, he figured it was the Arizona Diamondbacks. There are two basic reasons why the Diamondbacks may have claimed Hairston – the first reason could be to block Hairston from being picked up by another NL West opponent – the second reason could be that they have an actual interest in Hairston. That second […]
Over the next few months, there will be much discussion with regards to the Mets needs, and what they have to do to improve on this 2012 season. In fact, these discussions have probably been going on for about a month now. That’s one of the therapeutic things fans do when their team is in the dumps. Over the past month, I have seen very emotional fans voice their opinions on certain players in the […]
Mike Trout is having a season for the ages. The kind of season that has baseball fans checking the box score in the newspaper to see what he did the night before, and team executives scratching their heads wondering how they missed on this kid. If you turned on ESPN last year, the only time you would hear the word trout, was during one of those outdoors shows. It’s funny how things change in a […]
Many Mets fans are hoping and expecting that David Wright will be a member of the New York Mets after the 2013 season. However, after looking at the current state of this team, I wouldn’t count on it. David Wright is going to be faced with a very big decision within the next year. David has gone on the record stating that winning will be a big factor when he ultimately makes his decision. It sounds like […]
With two player’s testing positive for Performance Enhancing Drugs in the past two weeks, it is as clear as ever that PEDs are still an issue with Major League Baseball. Nobody should be surprised about the two latest positive test results. I listened to an interview of a player not too long ago (the player’s name slips my mind right now), but he said at one point he believed that 90% of players were on some […]
Fans of the Rocky movies know what I am referring to. After being retired for years, Rocky was asked why he was returning to the ring in the last Rocky installment, his response was “there’s still some stuff in the basement.” In other words, he couldn’t move on with his life until the fire burning inside him was completely out. That is the fire of competition, which all athletes have burning inside them. It causes […]
Someone is ultimately going to have to answer for the collapse of the Mets pitching staff and poor performance of the bullpen in 2012. It won’t be Sandy Alderson. I doubt it will be Terry Collins. The only person left is Dan Warthen. Is it really fair that Warthen takes full responsibility for what has happened with the Mets pitching staff over the course of this year? Warthen did a fantastic job with the pitching […]
