Mets Waste A Solid Start From Pelfrey, Lose 2-0 To Nats

How many solid pitching performances have the Mets wasted this season? Ten? Fifteen? Whatever that number may be, chalk up another one as a rare brilliant start by Mike Pelfrey was laid to waste by an anemic offensive performance in the Mets 2-0 loss to the Nationals.

Prospect Pulse: The Relievers

When next year’s Spring Training arrives, there will be some fierce competition for spots in the Mets bullpen. At this point, barring trade or injury, the only logical holdovers would be Bobby Parnell, Pedro Beato and Manny Acosta. Otherwise, it’s pretty wide-open. The recent performances of Josh Stinson and Daniel Herrera are promising, and they should be solidly […]

Jason Bay: Too Little, Too Late

An article by posted on September 13, 2011 0 Comments

Quite frankly, I’m a little sick and tired of the free ride Jason Bay has gotten this year from a New York media that loves to pick and choose who gets blasted in this town, and who doesn’t. I regret the day we signed Jason Bay, and I’m not going to be swayed now simply because he’s […]

If At “First” You Don’t Succeed…Get Depth

There’s an old saying related to baseball that, “If at first you don’t succeed, try the outfield.”  But if the Mets march to the beat of their own drummer, they changed that philosophy from the “outfield” to “first base.”  John Olerud leaves as a free agent, no problem!  Throw Todd Zeile there.  Mo Vaughn hasn’t […]

New York Post A red-faced Bud Selig called the Mets on Sunday night, the commissioner of baseball irate that the organization had thrown his office “under the bus” in divulging MLB […]

Star Wars Night – Mets Pics

Last night, the Mets teamed up with Lucasfilm Ltd. to host the first Star Wars Night at Citi Field. A portion of every ticket sold was donated to “Stand Up To Cancer”. I find your lack of clutch hits disturbing.  Laugh it up, fuzz-ball!  Guards, take him away and delete his Twitter account.   Don’t forget […]
