Pelfrey’s New Pitch

An article by posted on March 20, 2009

Pelfrey was spectacular yesterday, furthermore showing why the Mets have strength in their rotation, but he also showed something a little more yesterday, his new pitch. From hanging around Livan Hernandez, Pelfrey has developed a new sinker for left handed batters, who usually do damage against Pelfrey. The New York Times actually calls it a […]

Evans Almighty Is White Hot!

An article by posted on March 20, 2009

Somebody forgot to give Nick Evans the memo. The young first baseman started the spring with a one way ticket to AAA Buffalo, but all bets are off now. Apparently, either nobody told Evans, or he decided on his own to make it utterly impossible for the Mets to send him to the minors. You […]

According to mets.com, David Wright suffered a cracked toe nail after fouling a ball off of his left foot in yesterdays loss to Venezuela.

Wright Is As Clutch As They Come

An article by posted on March 18, 2009

Maybe after last nights game winning walk-off hit by David Wright, some dissenting Mets fans can begin to embrace David Wright as clutch hitter. Of course, one game isn’t going to convince you of anything, but last nights win over Puerto Rico was actually one of many. When Wright stepped up with the bases loaded […]

Freddy Garcia’s Last Stand?

An article by posted on March 18, 2009

Livan Hernandez will get the start today against the Braves, but all eyes will be on Freddy Garcia in what I believe could be a make or break moment for him. Garcia is slated to follow Livan Hernandez after he finishes pitching today. If Garcia pitches well and shows any signs of improvement from his last three efforts, […]

Livan Still Has The Edge

An article by posted on March 17, 2009

The battle for the fifth starters job got a little bit more murkier today when Jon Niese took the mound against the Atlanta Braves. Niese has more of an uphill battle because he not only has to pitch better than his rivals, he really needs to set himself apart in a big way for the Mets to give him the […]

I Vote For Pedro!

An article by posted on March 17, 2009

Once last season ended and throughout the off-season I thought that Pedro Martinez would be just a memory of days gone by.  I didn’t hold a grudge against Pedro but he was hurt more often than not and did not earn the big contract he was given.  Pedro was brought here to bring the Mets […]

This One Just for Fun: A-Fraud Loves Himself

An article by posted on March 17, 2009

At the risk of being identified as a “moron” for detracting from the stellar character possessed by one A-Fraud, I figured the base might get a kick out of the NY Post story about how much that excellent baseball player and all-around wonderful NY Yankee, Alexander Rodriguez, spends lots of time admiring himself. (C’mon admit […]
