This upcoming November, we all will be electing a new President to lead this country. However, a far more important election this fall will be who is named Most Valuable Player of not only the National League, but also Mets Nation. Jose Reyes quietly has been putting up MVP-like numbers all season long, all the while with a big smile on his face. Reyes leads the league in at-bats (524), triples (13), and multi-hit games. […]
Where would the Mets be this past few weeks without new pitching coach Dan Warthen? It seems in just a short amount of time that he has brought this year’s pitching staff back to life and has really jump-started Mike Pelfrey. Since taking over for Rick Peterson last month, Warthen has corrected Oliver Perez’s inconsistency, dramatically changed Pelfrey’s performance, solved Pedro hat-tipping his pitches and even changed Johan Santana’s delivery to make him even more effective. During […]
With the All-Star teams being named earlier today and only one Met, Billy Wagner, being on the roster with David Wright potentially being voted in with MLB’s LAST VOTE, this could be an opportune time for the remaining players on the Mets to get their heads together, re-group, and make a strong push for the playoffs in the second half of this season. If the score holds after this rain delay today, coupled with a […]
Over the next three weeks, the Mets have twenty two games to play before the All-Star Break. Of which, they play Seattle and the Yankees at home, then go to St. Louis, have a big four game series in Philly, then come back home to play San Francisco and Colorado. If they can win every series by winning two out of three or three of four the Mets will have a record of 52-43. This surely will […]
At a loss for words on how the last week of baseball has played out here are some uncanny lyrics that fit the state of the Mets…. Viva la Vida by Coldplay I used to rule the worldSeas would rise when I gave the wordNow in the morning I sweep aloneSweep the streets I used to ownI used to roll the diceFeel the fear in my enemy’s eyesListen as the crowd would sing:"Now the old king is […]
With the Mets recent slide this weekend in San Diego, I feel it’s now or never with this ballclub making the postseason. The 2008 New York Mets are currently 30-32, again under five hundred and 7.5 games behind the surging Phillies. With Pedro Martinez returning this past week, the Mets were supposed to have found their savior in the rotation to take the pressure off Santana, however it seems once again the offense has hit another slump and […]
Is it just me, or is there an uncanny resemblance between the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants and our beloved Metropolitans? Somewhere I can hear Alanis Morrissette asking "isn’t it ironic" how these two franchises actions over the past couple seasons mirror each other. Remember back before the Giants shocked the world in Super Bowl XXI, when they were in the tabloids each and every week, fans were booing their every move, and Tom Coughlin was on the verge […]
Who says Carlos Beltran is not a leader? Last night Keith Hernandez said, "Just because you have a fiery personality, it does not make you a leader". He was referring to Carlos Beltran when he said it, and it’s not the first time our former team captain referred to Beltran as a leader in the clubhouse. Beltran has taken a long time to become a fan favorite, mostly due to an injury marred first season. However, […]
I just had to share this article with you after I read it this morning. Kristie Ackert over at the Daily News really made me laugh with the opening paragraph to her column today. Too bad there isn’t time to change the Paul Lo Duca bobble head doll that will be given away today at Shea. If there were, the miniature version of the Mets’ hot-headed catcher could not only come with a removable mask, […]
