The race for the NL East is slowly drawing to an end. The Phillies and Braves are losing steam, and well, we just keep winning. Before Saturday, the Mets scored 5 runs or more in 12 consecutive games. That’s insane for a team who has had several key players out with injuries. The success from players David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes, Luis Castillo, and Moises Alou have really jump-started the team’s chances to lock in [...]
I apologize for the awful play on words, but can anyone dispute the fact that El Duque DOES give his opponents bloody hell? Of course you can’t! El Duque has been "all that and a bag of chips" for the Mets this season, and he has become the unofficial ace of the pitching staff. Would I be stretching the truth if I said that signing El Duque to a 2-year contract in the off season, [...]
Those words may have become a standard in baseball, but not to Kevin Kernan of the New York Post. According to him… It is over! So at 6:47 last night when Aaron Heilman got Luis Gonzalez to bounce into a 1-6-3 double play to give the Mets a 4-3 win over the Dodgers at sweaty Shea Stadium, the NL East race came to a close. Sure, there are magic numbers ahead and the official champagne [...]
It looks like Endy Chavez will not get activated today after all. It seems that he will instead be playing in another rehab game for Binghamton this afternoon. I have no idea why the Mets are biding their time. My guess is that they are torn between sending Lastings Milledge back to the minors, or cutting one of their relievers, probably, Aaron Sele. Look for the conclusion to this drama to unfold some time in the [...]
As the Mets get ready to sink the Dodger’s post season ambitions, check out what frustrated manager, Grady Little, had to say after the game. His reply was to a question that asked what went wrong in the first two games in the series against the Mets. His reply ends up being a back-handed compliment of David Wright, and a punch to the gut of his own team. "We have struggled with (key) at-bats a [...]
Paul Lo Duca is getting back into the swing of things while rehabbing in St. Lucie. He appeared in both games of a double header last night while making his first rehab appearances. He caught five innings for Brooklyn and went 0-for-2 with a walk in the first game, and in the second game, he served as the DH and went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer. He is expected to be activated on Monday and I assume [...]
As pessimistic as a Mets fan can be at times (especially at the end of a close game), I am beginning to feel a small sense of hope. The tune of many bogs including one of mine has been whether or not Omar Minaya was going to do something to provide a spark in the Mets clubhouse. I think we all were in agreement that the Mets play prior to the Nats series was more [...]
OK, so I am a wee bit premature with this, not to mention a tad anxious. But my mission tonight is to educate those of you who do not already have an understanding of the magic number. The magic number is used to determine when and how the first place team would "clinch" their position in the playoffs. It is any combination of first place wins and/or second place losses that would mathematically eliminate the second [...]
Center fielder Carlos Beltran was named National League Player of the Week today. Recently coming off the DL, Beltran showed everyone he was healthy and ready to play some ball. In the last two series against the Pirates and the Nationals, Beltran went 9-for-24 with 4 homers and 10 RBI’s. Sunday was his best day when he went 2-for-3 with 2 homers against the Nats helping the Mets earn the sweep. This is the second time [...]
