Two Very Disturbing Trends

An article by posted on April 11, 2009 0 Comments

Does four games provide you with enough data to start spotting trends? Probably not, but I’m going to do it anyway. Here are two very disturbing  trends… Pitchers Not Going Deep 1. Johan Santana - 5.2 innings pitched 2, Mike Pelfrey – 5.0 innings pitched 3. Oliver Perez – 4.1 innings pitched 4. John Maine – 5.0 […]

Bullpen Not At Fault

After watching the game last night against the Florida Marlins one could say that the ending was a 2008 re-run.  John Maine pitched 5.0 innings, allowing 2 hits, both of which were solo home-runs.  He didn’t walk anyone and pitched a total of 83 pitches.  After Maine left the 5th inning Bobby Parnell and Sean […]

The 4-0 Marlins beat the Mets 5-4 with a walk off hit in the ninth inning by Jorge Cantu off reliever Darren O’Day. You’re not going to win many games when you leave 14 runners on base, and that’s exactly what the Mets did. Maine started and other than letting up two solo homers to […]

You know, a friend of mine once told me that I was the only person who actually answered that question when she asked it to try to change the subject of a conversation. She couldn’t believe she found such an avid Mets fan who took her literally! I laugh every time I think about that. […]

I was just reading an interesting article by David Lennon of Newsday on his blog. Lennon seems all fired up about comments that were made by Jerry Manuel and Dan Warthen who both said they were encouraged by Ollie’s last start. I was kind of surprised yesterday to hear both manager Jerry Manuel and pitching […]

The Good, The Bad, and The Ollie

It may be far easier to unravel the mysteries of Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid, than it would be to figure out Oliver Perez. Todays performance by Perez was like a perfect microcosm of his entire career. He starts out be teasing us with a tantalizing performance in the first two innings that invoked memories […]

A Tale of Two Closers

April 8, 2009. Francisco Rodriguez comes into the game against the Cincinnati Reds in the bottom of the ninth inning. The Mets have a two run lead, and need their stud closer to come in and shut the door to close out the win. In true Mets-fashion, Frankie gives us all reason to keep our […]

I’m feeling so good about the Mets right now especially after what I witnessed last night.  That game against the Reds was more than just another early season win, it was convincing evidence that this might be the year the Mets go all they way. Let me explain… The old Mets never would have stood a […]

Pelf Not as Bad as You Might Think

I can only imagine what was going through the minds of some of you when Cincy took a 4-2 lead-Pelf pitched well enough to have been beaten 3-2 at that point. But Pelf was not all that bad, not as bad as that really high, 100-plus pitch count might indicate. What I saw was a […]
