Can’t Anybody Here Play This Game?

My title is one of Casey Stengel’s most memorable quotes and is applicable to how this season has started for the Mets. Yesterday’s doubleheader loss, coming hours after Terry Collins’ closed doors meeting, was a study in bad baseball. It made me wonder what would have happened had the Mets not focused on fundamentals during […]

Doug’s Dugout – A Twin Killing, Tulo, The North Atlantic

In Doug’s Dugout today we discuss: The North Atlantic, a Twin Killing, Tulo, and other assorted feeble thoughts.

For Love Of The Game

I read a bunch of papers every day, both delivered to my home and on the web. My field is Political Science and there is plenty of news there any day to catch my eye, although I do limit my attention to the Congress and the President. Here in Connecticut we have a new Governor […]

Feliciano Likely Out For Season, Alderson Looking Pretty Wise

An article by posted on April 15, 2011 0 Comments

In mid-December, when the crosstown rival Yankees signed Mets’ lefty specialist Pedro Feliciano to a two year, $8 million deal, the front office was criticized for letting him walk. Now, roughly four months later, it is looking like quite the smart move by Sandy Alderson who elected to pass on Feliciano. Feliciano had experienced a sore tricep that put him […]

I received an email from one of our regular readers last night asking me what I thought of the 4-7 start to the season. He was worried and wanted to know if I was worried too. My answer in short is yes, I do have concerns, but I also believe we are in capable hands […]

How About We Throw Some Strikes?

An article by posted on April 14, 2011 0 Comments

On the whole, baseball is a simple game. The pitcher takes the ball and throws it over the plate, while the batter either watches it go by, puts the ball in play or swings and misses. Pretty simple, right? Well, our beloved Mets have of course found a way to skew the most basic facet […]

Are Mets/White Sox Destined For Each Other?

An article by posted on April 14, 2011 0 Comments

Let’s all be honest, we knew what this team was before the season even started. Not losing all faith yet, but the Mets may in fact be sellers at the deadline. Recently I was asked if the Mets would be sellers or buyers at the deadline, to which I responded buyers. However that was the […]
