In Doug’s Dugout today we broach the following:  A scout’s opinion on Ike, Stephen Strasburg, and other random mindless thoughts:   When Ike Davis was drafted off the campus of Arizona State, a scout described him as having, “light-tower power.”  In the minors his first year he had an outage, but as he has matured and […]

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 […]

Remember Pat Misch? While taking a look at how our minor league teams  were doing, I was surprised to see how well Pat Misch was still doing at Class-AAA Buffalo. He got off to a great start in April and I thought he would eventually cool off, but I was dead wrong. As of last […]

As we bask in the glory of an ever so dramatic win last night, and take in the images of all that transpired during and after one of the best games of the season thus far, it feels so good to be a Mets fan. Watching how Mike Pelfrey has evolved this season has been […]

Pelf’s Pellucid Performance

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 […]

Nine weeks into the season already? I can’t believe it myself. In random baseball news, Armando Galarraga threw only about the 390,000th non-perfect game in major league baseball, nothing special. John Maine is on the DL with a weak shoulder and now Perez because his knee hurts. Uh…no comment. At least he’s not taking up […]

An article by posted on June 8, 2010 0 Comments
