June 15, 1977 – The Day The Music Stopped

Three days earlier, Seaver beat the Astros in Houston, 3-1, and after the game said: “This may very well be my last game as a Met.’’ Seaver went the distance that […]

Morning Grind: Mets Pitchers Have Been Terrible On Offense, Even For A Pitcher

Mets pitchers in 2011 have just been pathetic at the plate. Yes, pitchers are suppose to be “the easy out” in the lineup, and more often than not, they are retired, but not at the pitiful rate the Mets pitching staff has. Mets pitchers are batting a collective .073 with 5 walks compared to 55 punchouts in 123 at-bats. The Mets pitcher’s […]

Anytime we can use the word confluence in an entry, we should, I think. Of course when we mention the confluence, we’re talking about the Mets playing the Pittsburgh Pirates, who once upon a time played at Three Rivers Stadium, where the three rivers met, and flowed together, creating a confluence.

Dillon Gee – The Poor-er Man’s Rick Reed

The more I see Dillon Gee pitch, the more I see shades of Rick Reed and that’s more than fine by me. In the mid to late 90’s, Rick Reed was given another baseball life by Steve Phillips and the New York Mets. Technically it was a 5th chance considering he was passed up by […]

Reyes Making An Early Case For MVP

Given all the turmoil surrounding the New York Mets coming into 2011, not many expected anything from the team, during 2011. Coming into the season, speculation arose; perhaps 2011 would be a wash year for the Mets and phase-1 of a long rebuilding process. But, here we stand June 13, and the New York Mets […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 10)

An article by posted on June 13, 2011 0 Comments

This week was a harder decision than I’ve had to make in a while – go with the pitcher or go with our electric lead off man. It’s sometimes hard to choose what matters more (and usually, I’m such a pitching maniac). I was really impressed with the starting pitching of the Mets this week […]

Determining Jose Reyes’ Trade Value

The trade rumors regarding Jose Reyes have been constant since the season has begun. While it will not be the best move for the New York Mets to trade Reyes, it is still a possibility. If Reyes is dealt, the return that the Mets get will be incredibly important. Reyes is putting up MVP-type numbers […]
