Welcome Mets fans to another installment of Hot or Not. The Mets looked as if they were on their way back against San Fransisco, but they have since taken a few steps back against the Padres. They’ve only scored two runs in their last 23 innings, with Scott Schoeneweis and Johan Santana charged with losses. But I still have to pick somebody to be Hot and I have to pick somebody to be Not. Hot [...]
Thanks to a walk-off hit by pitch charged to Scott Schoeneweis, the Mets fell to the Padres 2-1. The game’s starter, Mike Pelfrey had pitched six solid innings of baseball, only allowing one run. Was it the best start of Pelfrey’s career? No. Did he keep his team in the game? Yes. Did he get the job done? In my opinion, yes. Pelfrey’s 2-6 record does not represent the kind of pitcher he is at all. His [...]
The Mets have been on a West Coast diet for the past week facing up with Torre and the Dodgers at Shea and Bochy’s Botching Giants in San Francisco. It appears as though the Mets enjoy West Coast flavors because they look as if they’re playing hungry. In the past week, the Mets have gone 5-2. The team ERA is 4.94 over the past week (inflated in large part to Oliver Perez’s “outing” which earned [...]
Seeing the Marlins occupying the top spot in the N.L. East the last few weeks hasn’t really bothered me all that much so far this season. However, for one very brief day I saw the Phillies in first place last week and I was seeing red… Not Phillies red…. There was blood in my eyes… I still haven’t gotten over them taking the division away from us last season, and while I can respect the [...]
You’re going to have to forgive me this morning. As excited as I am about the Mets taking 3 out of 4 games from the Dodgers, I can’t help but feel nostalgic today. Like all of us here on this site, I have a passion for all things Mets. So much so, that even the littlest things can trigger memories and other thoughts about them. One of the things that I have always loved [...]
The Mets capped off what started out as a very tenuous homestand with a great win on Sunday night before a national audience that saw them take 3 out of 4 games from the Los Angeles Dodgers after a convincing 6-1 victory. Johan Santana started for the Mets and performed every bit like the ace the Mets had hoped for tonight with a solid effort that saw him pitch all the way into the eight inning. [...]
Some time next week the Mets should be activating Moises Alou from the disabled list. It most likely means the end of the road for Nick Evans who would assuredly be the player who Alou will replace on the roster. We’ll see Evans again in the future, but clearly he needs more seasoning and more everyday playing time in the minors for now. Maybe the next time Alou gets injured, we can catch a glimpse of [...]
Happy Saturday Mets fans and welcome to another edition of Hot or Not. This week, we’ve watched our Metropolitans resurge against the (formerly) first place Marlins. They took a step backwards last night against the Dodgers, but I believe that they can still turn this thing around! Hot as FireDavid Wright: Heeeeeeeeee’s baaaaaaack! After last night’s game, he brought up his batting average to .284 and he now leads the team in home runs and [...]
There was a baseball team that played many years ago. Their statistics were less than stellar to say the least. The # 2 and # 3 starters were both under .500 for the season. The right fielder led the team in RBI’s with a mere 79. The power came from a first baseman who led the club with an insignificant 23 home runs while hitting a lowly .239. No one else on the team had over 20 dingers. Speed [...]
Two years ago, on May 23, 2006, the Mets were playing the rival Phillies. The game was tied 8-8 and went into extras. The Phillies’ Ryan Madsen had entered his 7th inning of relief when one Carlos Beltran stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the 16th inning. That night, Carlos Beltran hit a long home run over the Mets bullpen, sending the Shea Faithful home happy. I had not seen the end of [...]
Visions of 2006 have cluttered my mind over the past three days. For much of the last eight months of baseball at Shea Stadium, the Metropolitans were a hollow vessel lacking a heart beat. They were there in body, looking quite lavish in their blue and orange uniforms, but it was quite evident that the hunger and drive to attain victory was lost somewhere along the way. Was it the benching of Jose Reyes [...]
