Josh from Jorge Says No, emailed me a great video of the 1969 Mets who made an appearance on the Ed Sullivan show shortly after they won the World Series. Check out how young Tom Seaver looks, and Nolan Ryan too. Wayne Garrett looks just like Richie Cunningham from Happy Days. Enjoy…

An article by posted on April 27, 2009 0 Comments

I’m finding some interesting reads this morning from some who are concerned about David Wright’s lack of production this month. Newsday narrows it down for us… After hitting .342 (13-for-38) in his first 10 games, Wright is hitting .188 (6-for-32) in his last eight to drop his average to .271. He has only six RBIs, […]

The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same.

I watched a Mets game the other day and to say we looked terrible and inept would be an understatement. The opposing team scored 2 in the top of the first and 2 more in the second. There was a hit batsmen, an error, a wild pitch and a couple of walks thrown in for […]

Oliver Perez Is A Recipe For Disaster

An article by posted on April 27, 2009 0 Comments

Everywhere you go today you’ll read pretty much the same thing. Tops on today’s agenda is of course Oliver Perez and wait until you see what the Mets manager had to say about him. “I don’t know what we do,” Manuel said. “It’s something that has us concerned. It has me concerned. I’ll put it […]

Game Summary The Mets (8-10) were unable to complete a sweep of the Washington Nationals (4-13) thanks to another dismal performance lefthander Olive Perez. Jordan Zimmermann stymied the Mets offense as they were literally handcuffed this afternoon and unable to mount any credible rally. Mets Pitching What can I say about Oliver Perez that you haven’t already […]

The Sky Could Be Falling

Someone should have told the Mets they didn’t have this Sunday off. They sure did play as if today was not a regularly scheduled game. Again, we faced a rookie, and again he (Zimmermann) made us look very bad. Incidentally, our third Sunday in a row has been spoiled. I’ll confess that I stopped watching […]

Lets Not Celebrate Too Much!

It’s great to have a victory, break a slump, and give Santana a win he deserves but, the Mets still have a huge problem with RISP and everyone knows it. In yesterday’s game the Mets left 13 on base and (get ready, I hope you’re sitting) where 1 for 18 with runners in scoring position. […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Johan

An article by posted on April 25, 2009 0 Comments

Once in a while, I have those days where in my gut I know that the Mets are going to lose. Once every fifth day, I feel really good about the game. With Johan Santana pitching, I know it will be a low-scoring affair (on both sides unfortunately). I think yesterday was the first game […]

Jo-han, Jo-han, A Pitcher’s Life For Me

An article by posted on April 25, 2009 0 Comments

Amazing. There is no better word to describe Johan Santana. Talk about a stopper – he’s the only guy in the Mets rotation who can win!  (And have a different handshake for every teammate!)  Now I have been following baseball since 1990, and I’ll admit I have never been a fan of pitching. Never gave it […]
