Is Ike Davis The Solution At Cleanup Spot?

There are going to be a lot of changes over the next year. But I think it’s a pretty safe bet to say that Ike Davis is as close to untouchable as anyone could be on this Mets roster. That is for good reason, since there is no reason to move a 25 year old […]

Through statistics such as OBP, SLG, and a slew of other stats, Beane was able to snatch ballplayers with “hidden virtues” up for a song, creating a team on a $35 […]

Remember The Frenchy?

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 […]

The Washington Nationals opened Citi Field this season by taking two of three games against the Mets. Our guys went down to D.C. this week and returned the favor by winning two of three down there. Sadly, the Mets six game winning streak came to an end on Thursday night, but I think after watching […]

Benchwarmers: Are Mets Reserves Better Or Worse?

Like any other major league bench, many of the Mets reserves have already been pressed into some regular duty due to injuries or giving a slumping regular some time off.

You ever the get the feeling when you’re watching a Mets game that the batter will hit a home run on the next pitch? Well, I can’t say this is completely true about last night, but I was pretty close. After the debacle of a call by Marvin Hudson that erased Jose Reyes’ one-out triple, […]

Upon Further Review; Time For More Replay In Baseball

An article by posted on April 28, 2011 0 Comments

Like you I saw the play involving Jose Reyes at third base last night. Umpire Marvin Hudson blew it on all levels, from not seeing the play, to falling for the acting of Washington’s third baseman Jerry Hairston, to making a bad call, to not asking for help. I don’t think he was in proper […]
