Pelf-Awareness

I am one of the regulars on a weekly Kult of Mets Personalities podcast, and if you listened to it, you would know that I am the resident Mike “Big Pelf” Pelfrey homer. I root for him probably harder than any other Met. I don’t know why either, but I feel a personal connection to […]

Mets On Pace For Nearly 100 Losses

An article by posted on May 6, 2011 0 Comments

We saw what the Mets could do a week ago. They were proficient in tacking on runs, scoring late and getting hits with two outs, and – surprise – with runners in scoring position.

It was good to see Mike Pelfrey go out on that mound yesterday and deliver such a strong performance after a week of whispers that he could be pulled from the rotation and shipped to Buffalo. In his longest outing of the season, Pelfrey tossed 7 2/3 innings allowing just one earned run on four hits to beat the […]

From Left Field: Not The Injury Bug Again

An article by posted on May 5, 2011 0 Comments

Shades of the 2009 Mets are already apparent here this season. Though that team was more talented on paper, it was ravaged by the injury bug which gave Jerry Manuel very little to work with on a day-to-day basis. Well, it seems that injuries already have played a role this season. Last year’s breakout player, […]

In this photo from Yahoo Sports taken during last nights game, you can see evidence of what you probably heard during the game’s broadcast which was a crowd where San Francisco Giants fans far outnumbered Mets fans at Citi Field.

Game Summary The pitching was there tonight, but offense was nowhere to be found. Capuano had a nice start, bullpen held up well, but Lincecum and bullpen just proved to be too much for the Mets offense. Game Notes Chris Capuano did a great job on the mound with 6.1 innings pitched and only two […]
