The Cardinals Are Brilliant, Mets Not So Much

An article by posted on June 30, 2009 0 Comments

As most of you know, the Cardinals picked up utility infielder Mark DeRosa for reliever Chris Perez and a player to be named later. Of course some of us were shocked that the mets couldn’t up that offer, and there has been plenty of debate as to whether or not trading Bobby Parnell was worth […]

You Don’t Know How It Feels…

To [Have] be[en] meeee… at Miller Park. There I was one among a couple of hundred Mets fans (I guess) screaming my lungs out like an idiot, jumping up and down trying to say hi to Keith and Gary (who I am sure saw me as the resident nut w/ the vintage Hernandez jersey), and […]

Mets Under .500, Fall To Brewers 10-6

An article by posted on June 29, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets lost to the Milwaukee Brewers 10-6 tonight although it wasn’t as close as the score would suggest. The Mets looked lifeless out there tonight and their body language has become a concern to me. Every now and then when the cameras peeked into the dugout, all you saw were a bunch of sad […]

With all of our stars sidelined aside from D Wright – it’s been an interesting year for many players in the organization that probably never figured to have an opportunity to play as much as they have in 2009.  So continuing our analysis of these role players that have suddenly become so crucial to our […]

Citi Field – Where Homeruns Go To Die

An article by posted on June 29, 2009 0 Comments

 I read an interesting article on ESPN by Tristan Cockcroft entitled Shea It Isn’t. The piece is well written and well researched and is a fair comparison of the two parks. One of the interesting parts of his article was the following chart which shows exactly which non-homers would have been homeruns at Shea Stadium. Hitter […]

Atlanta Braves: (4-6; -5) The Braves lost two of there to the Boston Red Sox, and now begin a three game home series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Lowe vs. Blanton on Tuesday.

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! 6/21-6/28

Alright, so I was going to say “I hope everyone’s having a good day”, but watching K-rod walk Mariano last night has sucked the life out of me. I wasn’t favoring the umpire’s strike zone last night, or the ESPN announcers…but that’s not what I’m writing about. I do hope everyone’s having a good day, […]

Here’s Some Doom to Go with Your Gloom

That’s right, I’m not in a positive frame of mind. Yeah, something about looking like a sack of crap when playing the Skankees will do this to me. I just cannot let the last three games go, and I really was feeling like we might be able to muddle through until after the All-Star Break. […]

These Mets Are Not “Loveable Losers”

An article by posted on June 28, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets go into tonight’s nationally broadcast game having already lost the season series to the Yankees. With Livan Hernandez taking on Chien-Ming Wang, we should have a chance. Key word: should. With the recent luck of this team, we will probably embarrass ourselves while making Wang look like Cy Young. The Mets are coasting […]

Is It Check-Out Time For Hojo?

I cant recall a season where our Mets have been so decimated by injuries. I know that we should actually consider ourselves lucky in many ways. We’ve last 40% of our starting staff along with our newly acquired set-up man. David Wright has been forced into the role of trying to carry this entire team […]
