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 […]
Scott Hairston has made it clear that he wants the chance to be an every day outfielder. He said it earlier this week, and continues to back it up with his play in the field. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but at this point, he is probably the Mets best option heading into 2013. Hairston was 3-4 with three doubles again last night. He has raised his average to .274, to go along with […]
Matt Harvey was nothing short of spectacular last night. There was something different about last night’s start that was the key to his success. Did anyone else pick up on it? Answer: He only threw three change-ups the entire night. I’ve been arguing that this kid has been throwing too many change-ups in his starts since his electric debut in Arizona. It seemed like he was forcing the change-up in his past couple of starts, […]
The Mets collapse in the second half of this season has been disappointing on many levels. One of the more disappointing things has been the failure of players to step up and cement their place with this team for the future. Is it safe to say that the only players that have stepped up at all this year have been Daniel Murphy, Ruben Tejada, and R.A. Dickey? David Wright doesn’t count because we expected him […]
Do you remember when you became a Mets fan? Was it because the Brooklyn Dodgers up and left town, leaving you with no option other than to root for the hated Yankees? Was it that miracle run in 1969? Was it the power house Mets teams of the 1980s? Maybe it was something else. Whatever it was that drew you to the blue and orange, everyone has their own special reason to attribute their fandom […]
The New York Post reported earlier today that David Wright is more interested in winning championships, than the money he is bound to receive when his contract expires at the end of this year. David states “the money issue for me, I don’t think that will be deciding factor.” David, the fans like the sound of that, but you aren’t the first athlete to utter those words before bolting town for a bigger pay check. […]
As I sit here watching Shark Week, I can’t stop thinking about how I wish the Mets would be more aggressive. I know their financial situation isn’t the greatest, but as fans, why do we have to suffer for the bad investment choices of a few? It doesn’t seem right. The saddest part of the story is, much like the poor seals that swim off the coast of South Africa, there isn’t much relief in […]
Moneyball is a ultimately a strategy that was developed by a small market team’s general manager in order to compete large market teams. When Billy Beane sat down and started to think about creative ways to stay competitive with large market teams, he didn’t write the word moneyball on a dry erase board, and tell everyone in the room that this was his new idea. Moneyball was a name, that was given by an author, […]
The Mets currently have a front office in place that has earned them the nickname the “Moneyball Mets.” Mets G.M. Sandy Alderson was once Billy Beane’s mentor, and the Mets have also added a couple of other front office executives that once worked with Beane. As the Brady Bunch theme song goes – everyone sing along – that’s the way we became the Moneyball Mets. Does that mean the Mets are on pace to have the […]
