Time to be blunt. Jose Reyes – you are making it really difficult for me to choose somebody else as POTW. You’re being a great sparkplug and you’re tearing it up. You have a “three-game slump” and then drills four hits. The Mets offense has not particularly been on fire lately so it’s not so hard to differentiate. The men are being seperated from the boys, in a prodigal sense, as the year keeps going…and […]
Intangibles – a simple word that can mean so much more. As much as I live and die by the statistics, in fact, probably more than the average non-sabermetric fan… I’m always looking for the intangible things; the things that can’t be measured by any statistic but still have an impact on the game. For some pitchers, it can just be their mental state. Confidence goes a long way when you’re playing the most difficult […]
This week was a harder decision than I’ve had to make in a while – go with the pitcher or go with our electric lead off man. It’s sometimes hard to choose what matters more (and usually, I’m such a pitching maniac). I was really impressed with the starting pitching of the Mets this week – honestly, Dan Warthen’s doing something right or the pitchers are finally putting it together. I think it’s a little […]
It’s been a while since I’ve been back here for the POTW – I think the Mets injury bug has spread to me. I’ve been watching the Mets more often lately, trying to find footage from online feeds, and I’ve been feeling a little different about the team. Our expectations from our Metsies have always been a little high so we all feel a little pessimistic at times when they don’t achieve them. Last week […]
We’re in 4th place – and yet, the Philadelphia Phillie writers just can’t stop writing about the Mets. This piece really rubbed me the wrong way and was noted by Metsblog. The Phillies have a one game lead on the Marlins and about three and a half on the Braves. And yet, Mike Missanelli from the Philly Post had to go ahead and write a piece on his 5 most hated Mets of all time. […]
With the impressive performance of Pedro Beato so far this season, I am beginning to see some similarities of another young pitcher that I have grown quite fond of over the years. If you have not heard of Joakim Soria, here’s a quick synopsis. Soria is the closer for the Kansas City Royals with 138 career saves to his name and a career ERA of 2.13. He came to the Royals through the Rule 5 draft in […]
So last’s week POTW caused a bit of a stir, much to my amusement, and It’s good to see how many people pay attention to my choice for the week. But outside of baseball, today is a great day for Americans. Although the Mets pulled off an extra innings victory last night, America won as well – with the death of Osama Bin Laden. I am sure I do not need to tell you what […]
Things are looking up for the Mets right now and I just wanted to point out something quickly about an ex-Met. Remember Jeff Francoeur? It wasn’t too long ago that Jeff Francoeur sparked incredible debate over every single thing he did. No, really…every thing. There were fiery debates right here and I enjoyed watching all of them. Francoeur became the poster boy for “anti-sabermetrics” and I found the whole thing pretty amusing. In any case, […]
I’ll cut to the chase. Something I’ve been thinking about recently and that I’ve mentioned a few times to friends lately is that the Mets really don’t have a real cleanup hitter. We play in a ball park that is quite obviously pitcher friendly and it can very well sap a few runs from any team playing there. Since the Mets haven’t loaded up on gap hitters that play to Citi Field (which isn’t too […]
