Last night’s Met victory provided me with a brief moment of satisfaction as it pertains to this team. It’s frustrating seeing the Mets flailing away at the baseball at times. Johan pitched pretty well however, and the Mets finally won a series. Rejoice Met Nation! I must broach a subject that has perplexed and exasperated me […]

I came across an interesting post by Jerry Vrentas of the Star-Ledger who reveals that Omar Minaya has been consulting frequently with a sabermetric guru before making a trade or player acquisition. Meet Ben Baumer, who serves as the Mets’ official Statistical Analyst, Baumer has been serving the Mets in this role for the last seven seasons […]

We all know about the on again, off again musings of Jerry Manuel with regards to batting Jose Reyes third in the lineup, a move that Reyes is strongly opposed to. In fact, Manuel had planned on unveiling Reyes in the third spot during the Cardinals series last weekend, but backed off after Reyes began chirping […]

From this point on I’ll be focusing on two kinds of blogs. The first and most important will be the upcoming series preview. I’ve never done a series preview before; I toiled with game previews while our buddy Elliot was away last summer. So stick with me, if I’m brutal at the start, just think […]

So here we are fifteen games into the season with a 7-9 record and finally winning our first series of the season against the Cubs. Optimists (a club of which I was a charter member) are still under the impression that the season is still in hand and that only minor changes are needed right now. While others […]

Baseball Needs The Mets To Be Good!

I read a great quote from a scout in the latest edition of Jayson Stark’s Rumblings & Grumblings on ESPN.com. “You know, baseball needs the Mets to be good,” one scout said. “Baseball is more fun when the Mets are good and that rivalry between them and the Phillies is cooking. But this just isn’t […]

Jason Bay’s Bat Needs To Get Louder

Who would have thought, a disappointing start to the 2010 season would have Mets fans ranting about anything but starting pitching. Mike Pelfrey has been lights out thus far posting a 0.86 era in 21 IP. Johan Santana seems to have achieved 2006 euphoria; and aside from some inopportune home runs, the bullpen and Japanese […]
