At the risk of being called “Captain Obvious” and getting comments of “Gee, ya think?”, I wanted to point out that the Mets are out of the Playoff hunt, and the only thing meaningful about the end of the 2009 Mets season will be playing time for the prospects and maybe to play spoiler. Now […]

So another month ends in what seems to be the never ending saga of the 2009 Mets. In a month where the Mets put together only 10 wins, it’s hard to find hope in a lost season. No Met pitcher had more than 2 wins in August. It’s a bittersweet twist because it’s much easier […]

Going into the 2009 season hopes were high for the Mets.  Most people believed that once the Mets signed Francisco “K-Rod” Rodriguez that all the problems from last year were solved.  Last year the bullpen killed us in our race to the playoff’s but that was not the only reason why missed out of the […]

So pitching wise, I’d have to say we did not see a bad week for the Mets, with the Mets starters throwing out two Johan-esque performances (Misch, Figueroa), some decent ones (Redding, Figueroa), and some…bad ones (Parnell, Pelfrey, Parnell). I did that the AAAA team won’t mail in the season yet, as they’re still out […]

When Johan Santana was disabled with a season-ending injury, the Mets knew his replacement would have some big shoes to fill.  Since replacing Santana in the rotation last week, Nelson Figueroa has done his best to pitch like the Mets ace.  Today, he pitched into the eighth inning and struck out a career-high 10 batters, […]
