Hopefully, the Mets are playing it safe and will allow Mike Pelfrey to rest rather than pitch on Sunday. In a post I made this morning, I suggested that the Mets call up Nelson Figueroa and let him pitch until Mike Pelfrey is 100% pain free and has no further soreness in his forearm. I wrote in a comment to Adam: The Mets should just shelve Pelfrey for 2 weeks, and use Nelson Figueroa for [...]
Only two starts into his new role as the Mets number two starter, a role many warned might lead to a unwise workload in only his second full season, Mike Pelfrey is already ailing with what is being called forearm tendinitis. The Mets have long considered Mike Pelfrey, a former first round pick, a prized possession, but when Pelfrey complained of a stiff forearm in spring training, the Mets solution was to keep trotting him [...]
Hey, did anyone else just notice that Oliver Perez didn’t skip over the foul line like he usually does after the first? It’s the first time I’ve seen him end the first inning without his customary hop over the line as he is heading to the dugout. Keith Hernandez just got a chance to speak with Rachel Robinson in the booth. His first words? “First of all, I never knew Jackie Robinson had such big [...]
Gary Sheffield is expected to start in right field for the first time this season. He enters the game with 499 homeruns and may mark the first memorable Mets moment at Citi Field if he hits number 500 at Shea tonight. I’m not exactly sure how to feel about that, but if it’s a game winning homer than bring it on. Who knows what we can expect from Oliver Perez when he takes the mound [...]
David Wright just hit the first Mets homerun at Citi Field, and it wasn’t just your ordinary homerun… With the Mets down by three runs in the bottom of the fifth, Dan Murphy and Jose Reyes were on first and third and the crowd was getting raucous. Then, Wright took a 3-2 pitch into the deep into the night over the leftfield wall to tie the game up. It was dramatic shot and hopefully it [...]
No surprise here, but as expected the New York Mets have designated pinch-hitting specialist and reserve outfielder, Marlon Anderson for assignment. The Mets made the announcement this afternoon to make room for tonights starter, Livan Hernandez. If Anderson clears waivers, he can either accept a spot at Triple-A Buffalo or become a free agent. Anderson was 0-for-4 this season at the time of his demotion. And so it goes…
A Page Out of 2008 And a bad one at that. Yes, we battled back, and that was great to see, but we should have won this game, not lost 5-4 after coming back twice. We lost because we left 14 men on base, and because every time we needed the big pitching performance from the pen they let us down. Some non-linear thoughts on why we failed tonight: Mainey pitched really well with the [...]
According to Adam Rubin, Gary Sheffield’s debut as a starting right fielder for the Mets will wait until Wednesday against the Padres, Jerry Manuel announced. Manuel said he would have thrown Sheffield into right field Sunday against the Marlins, even if Sheffield wasn’t quite ready, but the manager wanted to have his primary lineup on the field that day with ace Johan Santana on the mound. Carlos Beltran just hit his first homer of the [...]
The Saturday night game between the Florida Marlins and the New York Mets when they go down (down) in Miami has been moved to 6:10 from it’s previous time of 7:10. SNY does not pick up coverage of the game until 7:00 because FOX Saturday Baseball has an exclusivity timeframe from 4:00 to 7:00 PM on Saturdays. What that means is that when FOX airs a Game of the Week on Saturday afternoons, no other [...]
