Trade Beltran If You Must, But Not To The Bronx

An article by posted on June 21, 2011 0 Comments

The question doesn’t appear to be “if,’’ but “when,’’ the Mets will deal outfielder Carlos Beltran. The physical questions that followed him into the season have seemingly been answered in the positive, which means the Mets don’t have to think solely about dealing with the American League, although there are several interesting possibilities, including Boston, […]

Could Ike’s Injury Have Cost Him An All-Star Appearance?

It may seem like a distant memory at this point, but earlier this season, before the unfortunate collision with David Wright that has left him in a boot for the past month, Ike Davis was off to one hell of a season. If Wright had not barreled into Davis in Colorado, especially now after Albert Pujols out with a broken arm, could the […]

With the Mets having dropped 2 of 3 already in their 6-game home stand against AL West foes, the Angels, and with the A’s coming to town tomorrow night, its time for the Mets to step up and just win. The Amazins, haven’t been so amazing this year as the record stands at a sub-par […]

Watch What You Do

An article by posted on June 20, 2011 0 Comments

Here are my thoughts on teams being buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. As long as you are well within ten games of a Wild Card you should NOT be sellers. Not when there’s still a third of a season left to play. Remember 1973.  If you do start selling off players at that […]

The Myths of Omar and Sandy

An article by posted on June 20, 2011 0 Comments

From the day he was hired, to the day he was fired I was often called an “Omar apologist.” I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase before right? Basically from what I deducted from that was “not everything Omar does is garbage,” therefore I am apologizing for him.  Recently, I’ve seen a lot of negativity towards […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 11)

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 […]

It’s Time to Move On From Failure

An article by posted on June 20, 2011 0 Comments

There are so many different opinions on this Jose Reyes saga, and frankly I’m ready for it all to be over. I think I’ve heard it all. I think part of the problem frankly is that the folks who are pro-long term Reyes think that people like myself dislike Reyes and that is why we […]

Pelfrey: Standing Tall At Home

Look at the photo to the left. That was the linescore from last night’s game, a complete game victory by Mike Pelfrey in which Big Pelf was voted co-player of the game with Carlos Beltran (who hit a monster two-run homer that was estimated at 460 feet). It was the first complete game of the […]

Pelfrey Pitches Much Better With A Veteran Backstop

An article by posted on June 19, 2011 0 Comments

Mike Pelfrey has not exactly been consistent over the past one and a half seasons, but more often than not, when Pelfrey is locked in and pitching well, 60 feet, 6 inches away is a veteran backstop calling the game. Pelfrey has always been a pitcher that has trouble stopping the bleeding once the going […]
