Yesterday on MLBTR, they linked to a report in the Detroit News, that the Detroit Tigers were interested in David Wright. “David Wright looks as if he will be available and the Tigers almost certainly will be among those clubs inquiring.

Time For Bay To Give Us Some Bang For The Buck

An article by posted on May 7, 2011 0 Comments

I am not a big stats guy. They can be telling, but also misleading. With some numbers, you can twist them into meaning anything you want. That’s not the case with Jason Bay, whose numbers have been fundamentally telling and just plain bad. He hit six homers with 47 RBI while batting .259 last season. […]

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

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 […]

Mets Should Take It Very Slow With Santana

An article by posted on May 6, 2011 0 Comments

Last night during my interview with Kerel Cooper of On The Black, we discussed Johan Santana and his timetable for return. I said that if this team continues to play under .500, I believe they need to hold him off as long as they can. In fact, if the Mets continue to play poorly in the coming months, they […]

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, […]
