Citi Field, aged two, already has a past. Last year when we first saw the place, there were a lot of Brooklyn memorabilia and exhibits there. We knew that the Dodgers had moved to LA in the long ago fifties, so many of the visitors thought that something was wrong. And it was. Fred Wilpon, […]

Born on the same day the Mets won their second World Series title, Jonathon Niese pitched like a champion last night against the San Diego Padres.  In shutting out the Padres, he allowed only one man to reach base all game, a double to centerfielder Chris Denorfia to lead off the third inning.

Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog reported that the Mets are scouting the Baltimore Orioles and had scouts in attendance during Kevin Millwood’s (0-7 4.64 ERA) start against the Yankees. It’s possible that they may also have some interest in Jeremy Guthrie (3-6 3.71 ERA) among other O’s starting pitchers. As has been widely reported already, the Mets have no […]

An article by posted on June 9, 2010 0 Comments

Pelted only by the game’s second and third hitters, Mike Pelfrey threw perhaps his best game of the season. For the second time in a row, our number five man to start the season, looked Seaver-esque, almost always ahead of hitters in the count, he economized on his pitches magnificently and got batters to swing […]
