When Willie Randolph has Rick Peterson make a call to the bullpen, it has become a vicious game of "Choose Your Poison." It’s like playing "Russian Roulette" with six bullets in your six shooter. "Omar Minaya and Willie Randolph have to assume the blame." That is what Ed Coleman from WFAN had to say. It was a poorly constructed bullpen that began when Omar Minaya decided to give Guillermo Mota the contract that should have gone [...]
I thought I would share some of our recent comments and emails with you. None of it may mean much, but it does show the level of anxiety shared by most Mets fans this morning. Not a good week so far for our Mets. I am not happy with Willie Randolph for sending Wagner out for a second inning. He had already given up a homerun in the 8th. Instead I would have went to Heilman [...]
After the Mets (and our) recent nightmare yesterday, many thoughts raced through my mind as to what my blog should be about today. I would really like to stay cheery and positive, but it would just feel like I’m being phony. So I have decided to go the route of a “fake it till you make it” attitude and just do something completely random and nonsensical…which happens to be a specialty of mine. That being [...]
The "Force" was clearly not with the Mets last night as they lost their third straight game in this series and their fourth straight overall. The umpires have been a big factor in each game, and clearly, the majority of the calls have gone against the Mets. Last night’s call by second base umpire, CB Bucknor, kept the Mets from scoring the tying run and snuffed out a would-be comeback from the Mets. The call [...]
Here are the results of last weeks poll question which asked the question: Do You Want Guillermo Mota On The Post Season Roster? I’m sure it would surprise nobody that an overwhelming 58% of you said NO WAY. I wonder if any of you voted again after last nights debacle? Only 9% of you said that you DEFINITELY wanted Mota to pitch in the post season. A number that I still feel was WAY to high. [...]
Much has been made this year, (especially by me) of the lack of passion and excitement that has been missing from the Mets this year. With the exception of a Paulie LoDuca blow- up it has been pretty monotonous. It’s hard for me to say that when we have the most exciting player in baseball on the team in Jose Reyes… Thankfully, we are soon to get the boost we have been waiting for in [...]
It’s been a long and bumpy ride all season long for the Mets’ long list of would-be number five starters. It started out with so much hope and promise after Mike Pelfrey won the job coming out of Spring Training, but after quickly falling to 0-6, a poorly executed game of musical chairs began. The Mets have lacked a true ace all season long. A true stopper, if you will. It’s prevented the Mets from [...]
For the first time in who knows how long, the Mets finally have all their regulars in the lineup at the same time. With the return of Paul LoDuca and Luis Castillo to the lineup tonight, we get to enjoy the team that Omar Minaya so intelligently put together to win us a World Championship. But don’t get too used to seeing these guys all together out there. In fact, by the time Pedro Martinez [...]
My, how quickly the tide can turn. Two short weeks ago, I myself stated in my weekly piece here at Metsmerized that I was a fan filled with worry and concern. Nothing specifically brought me to feel in the manner I did. The Mets were dreadful; they were winning marginally if at all, and failed to impress by doing so. They resembled not much more than a tired, old, oft-injured, uninspired ball club. To add [...]
