I had one of those mornings this morning… I think it was because I didn’t have any coffee. Hey, I can’t wait to see Pedro take the mound tomorrow afternoon at Shea. Yesterday he said he feels sharper than he did during his first start and that he expects to throw more pitches than the 76 he threw against the Reds. I think Carlos Delgado is snake bit or something… The only two times this [...]
It’s still to early to say who will win the National League MVP in 2007, but one player who is starting to get some much deserved attention, is New York Mets third baseman, David Wright. Back in April and May when Wright was enduring one of the longest slumps in his career, nobody could have imagined that he would bounce back so strong that he would find himself among the top ten in almost every offensive category. Nobody [...]
Matt over at Metsblog had a very telling statistic on his site today. Apparently, Howard Johnson is having a great impact as hitting coach for the Mets. Check out what Matt wrote… Prior to Rick Down being fired as the team’s batting coach, the Mets hit .268 as a team, .252 with runners in scoring position, while they have reached base roughly 33 percent of their plate appearances. Meanwhile, since Howard Johnson was hired as [...]
As I’m certain that many of the Shea faithful can relate, the Mets performance from the previous day has at least a small effect on how we approach the next day. Many times we go to work, school or anywhere else with our heads hung low in shame and insides tied in knots. Even with yesterdays sad 7- 0 loss to the Reds and a mediocre 5- 5 road trip, there are many reasons we [...]
Mets starting catcher Paul Lo Duca is this years nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award. As explained on mlb.com, each of Major League Baseball’s 30 teams has one nominee, and Lo Duca has distinguished himself among the Mets for this year’s nod. This special award recognizes the player who best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team. It is named in honor of the former Pirates outfielder [...]
Looks like the news on Carlos Delgado is much worse than first reported. Mets.com is now reporting that first baseman, Carlos Delgado will miss a week to ten days due to a strained right hip flexor. Delgado underwent a magnetic resonance imaging test on Wednesday after feeling a twinge in his right hip while swinging at a pitch during the eighth inning of New York’s 11-7 win over the Reds on Tuesday. Not exactly the [...]
It is without a doubt that the Mets have become more aggressive on the bases since Ricky Henderson took over as first base coach. And much to our delight, Jose Reyes not only leads the Majors in steals this year, but he has already broken the Mets single season steal record, previously held by Roger Cedeno, when he swiped 66 bases during the ’99 season. However, even though the Mets are playing well and winning [...]
I’m certain that as I write this, hundreds of other Mets bloggers are thinking the same thing: Pedro is back. Maybe he wasn’t 1999- 2004 Pedro, but he certainly did more than enough to put the Amazins’ in position to win. THIS is the reason Omar signed him to a contract many thought was foolish. Pedro brings so much more to the ballpark than an ordinary pitcher. Electricity, attitude and unpredictability are weapons in his [...]
For those of you out there who may not totally understand how the playoffs work, here is a breakdown of the post-season and where the Mets may find themselves in just a few short weeks: There are three rounds of post season play. The first round is the Division Series. The first place teams from the East, Central and West Divisions, along with the Wild Card winner, play in this round. The Wild Card winner is the second place team with [...]
