Power Play: Could Ike Davis Be The Next Darryl Strawberry?

An article by posted on April 24, 2011 0 Comments

It seems odd to compare Ike Davis to Darryl Strawberry.  After all, Darryl was the #1 pick in the 1980 amateur draft, took home the Rookie of the Year Award in 1983, and is at or near the top of many of the Mets’ all-time hitting records.  Ike Davis?  He was known for being the […]

Jason Bay didn’t take very long to contribute to the Mets offensively, and it sure did pay off as the Mets went on to win a tight one against the D-Backs 6-4.  Even with the rain delay, the Mets offense still decided to come alive today.  The team’s 15 hits is a season high for the […]

Last season, the Mets went into the MLB Draft with the 7th pick overall.  I’ll admit, that having such a high pick does increase the chances of getting a good to great prospect, and so far  things couldn’t be better for RHP Matt Harvey.  When the Mets selected Harvey, questions arose about how he will translate his success […]

Why Can’t Everybody Be a Met?

An article by posted on April 22, 2011 0 Comments

There’s a lot of negativity in the Mets fan base when it comes to the direction of where the 2011 team is headed. I don’t really have a problem with it, because at 6-13 we all should be frustrated.  However, this idea that the 2011 season is all the fault of Sandy Alderson is just […]

Getting the Wright Return

An article by posted on April 22, 2011 0 Comments

As time ticks away, and the Mets continue to lose games to inferior franchises, I get closer and closer to the thought that David Wright has to be made publically available for the good of the franchise.  It’s not a dislike for Wright, or a disgust for the Mets, the Wilpon’s etc. It has nothing […]

What A Difference A Bay Can Make

An article by posted on April 22, 2011 0 Comments

David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Jason Bay and Ike Davis together at last in the middle of the order.  I know it is only one game, but inserting Bay into the middle of that lineup really solidifies the middle of the batting order.  Jason did not tear the cover off the ball in his first game back, but just his […]

These Are The Times Where We Miss Santana

An article by posted on April 22, 2011 0 Comments

With the Mets now officially the worst team in baseball, and no clear way to stop the bleeding, these are the times we miss ace Johan Santana. Without Santana, the Mets have no legitimate stopper in the rotation, something they are in dire need of. But given that we shouldn’t realistically expect Santana to return until July, what […]

Come on, you knew when the Mets lost the first two games of this series, this 3 Up & 3 Down entry would be called “Houston We Have A Problem”, how could it not be? Our guys lose 2 of 3 to the Astros, and their record is now 6-13. The 3 Ups all come […]
