Daniel Murphy will hit third and start in left field tonight against the Braves. Fernando Tatis will again start at first base for the injured Carlos Delgado.

You can’t win ‘em all, it has been said, but last night’s defeat did sting a tad. For one, the Mets continue to squander sterling Johan Santana performances. He should hire a lawyer and sue the hitters for non-support. Why do the bats take a respite every time the fiery lefty storms the hill? The […]

Last night, I was feeling a little masochistic and I decided that a self imposed torture of listening to WFAN after the game would do the trick. It did. I did manage however to hear an interesting call about Dan Murphy that managed to find a way to sneak in between all the ”Jerry Manuel sucks” calls, and the “this […]

Last week I wrote about Oliver Perez and the decision of Omar Minaya and the Mets to send him into the bullpen.  The next day the Mets decided to put Ollie on the disabled list (DL).  The reason provided by the Mets was that after an MRI it was determined that Ollie was suffering patella […]

Jerry Manuel was asked a great question during the post game presser. “Will your team come to regret these Johan Santana losses in September?” “There will probably come a time,” Mets manager Jerry Manuel said. “There will probably come a point where you’ll think, ‘Wow, we missed a lot of opportunities with Johan.’” Ya think???

I Got Two Big Problems With This Loss

An article by posted on May 11, 2009 0 Comments

1. Why did he take out Johan Santana when he was the only pitcher best equipped to get out of that inning? I don’t care if Johan Santana had already thrown over 100 pitches. The guy is a warrior and wanted to stay in the game. Plus even if he was a little winded, 80% […]

OK, Lets Talk About Sean Green

An article by posted on May 11, 2009 0 Comments

Let me begin by saying that the Mets bullpen is one of the best in baseball right now and certainly the best in the National League. With that being said, this post might come off as being a little bit too nit-picky. I am somewhat befuddled by Jerry Manuel’s incessant overuse of Sean Green so […]

An article by posted on May 11, 2009 0 Comments

While reading a recap of yesterday’s game from Associated Press, I read something that caught me completely by surprise. Apparently, after the game Ian Snell spoke with reporters and pretty much accused Wright of somehow stealing signs. Here is the way AP tells it, “They hit some good pitches. I found out later they had our […]
