Dillon Gee tossed 5.2 shutout innings today on route to a 2-0 shutout victory for the Mets Tuesday evening – their first ST victory since March 9th. Summary Dillon Gee looked pretty sharp out there tonight – He looked in control for basically the entire duration of his start. He pitched into the sixth, allowing only three hits and a walk while striking out four. Francisco took over after, and immediately walked a batter and […]
Dickey took the mound and looked brilliant in 2 perfect innings, but a rain delay and an Adam Loewen error put the Mets on the track to a 3-1 loss. Summary R.A. Dickey started today opposite Marlins ace Josh Johnson where we caught our first glimpse of Jose playing against us. Dickey threw only 23 pitches (16 strikes) in 2 perfect innings – but was taken out due to a 1 hour rain delay in […]
This afternoon, Pelfrey struggled again and gave up 4 ER off 2 HR in 4.1 IP, and sent the Mets on their way to a 7-1 defeat. Summary It was a tough day for Mike Pelfrey, who started opposite Adam Wainwright. It is early in spring training, but a line of 4 ER, 2 HR, and 6 H in only about 4 innings is not encouraging. I do not have a good feeling about Francisco, […]
Before I start, I have to admit to my bias. I have lost a lot of faith in the direction of the franchise. It is well defined at this point and it is not the way I would handle things. There was a glimmer of hope in all of us that really felt in the back of our minds that Jose Reyes would somehow return to the Mets. It’s impossible to play for a team […]
The idea of front-loading contracts is simple. You pay a player for his good years and as the contract goes on, the salary decreases. The concept is not meant to save anyone money and it does decrease short term payroll flexibility, but can benefit a team in the latter years of a deal. I am obviously not the first person to suggest this idea, but you will see why I pose the question as I […]
Regardless of my feelings about the actual Francisco Rodriguez trade, I was really curious as to what the Mets would be getting in return from the Brewers. The general assumption is that we would get two PTBNL who didn’t matter at all, but I wanted to look more into the situation. As you already know, the Mets acquired two young pitchers for Rodriguez: Daniel Ray Herrera and Adrian Rosario. Herrera’s name was familiar to me […]
I keep hearing about the Rockies wanting Wright. What do you think we could get for him? Is Cargo out of the question? –Gary Hanley Well Gary, allow me to get a few things out of the way before I delve into this question. First off, we’re not completely sure that Wright is even on the trading block. Throughout the season, we had many rumors and whispers that David Wright was available and on the […]
With the Mets offseason in the opposite of full swing outside of coaching decisions, allow me to change up the flow just a little bit with this post. These photos are a little late, but I had the good fortune of being invited to a Mets game recently. It just so happened to be R.A. Dickey’s last start of the regular season. For those of you who may not remember, Dickey pitched brilliantly, but was denied (for the […]
The Mets are in need of a center fielder. They should just sign Carlos Beltran. He won’t cost that much because he is 34. Sign him for two years and that will solve they’re problems. What do you think? –Jacob Chalif There are many ways to go about answering this question and many things that need to be considered. First off, there’s a little worry about Carlos Beltran’s ability to handle CF. Remember, Beltran played […]
