One of my favorite players on the Mets is John Maine. Maine always wants the ball, always goes out to the mound ready to win a game. When he steps on the mound every fifth start he’s as intense as anyone playing the game today. In 2006 he endured himself to Mets fans when he pitched his heart out in the playoffs. On September 28, 2007 he took a no hitter deep into the game […]
After capturing the NL pennant in 2000, the Mets quickly sunk to the depths of mediocrity. 2001 saw the defending league champions struggle to get to 500, finishing 82-80, 3rd place, 6 games back. From 02-04, our Mets fell faster than George W.’s Approval Rating. We averaged just 71 wins and finished a combined 86 games out of first. Then, Omar Minaya was brought in as GM and almost overnight his impact was felt. It […]
Jeremy Reed has just about sewn up a spot on the opening day roster as the fourth outfielder. Today against the Braves, Reed had a banner day going 4-5 with two runs scored and four ribbies. Ironically, he wasn’t even supposed to play today as Carlos Beltran was slated to start but was scratched minutes before the game and replaced by Reed. Jeremy Reed is now batting .426 and for those who think that spring […]
In a bit of a surprising move, Jerry Manuel announced to reporters that he plans to have leftfielder Dan Murphy batting second in the lineup. The move means that Luis Castillo would become the eight place hitter. It’s a move that has been debated for months here on this site, and one that will make many Mets fans happy. Adam Rubin of the Daily News explains: Despite only 131 big-league at-bats on his resume, Murphy’s […]
All the talk lately has been focused on the hot hitting Nick Evans, but if Evans were to make the team, who would be the odd man out? Adam Rubin of the Daily News believes it could be Marlon Anderson despite his guaranteed contract for 2009. Now, Evans has performed so well, he could push the lefty-hitting Marlon Anderson off the team entirely, despite Anderson’s guaranteed $1.15 million contract. “It will probably be an interesting […]
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 front door sinker, basically, it looks good, goes out and comes back, which makes left handed batters not swing at […]
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 rock dude! This kid is has been relentless at the plate… His sheer determination may have clinched his place on […]
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. A cracked big toe didn’t wipe the smile off David Wright’s face or diminish his enthusiasm for the World Baseball Classic. The Mets All-Star third baseman fouled a ball off his left foot in Team USA’s 10-6 loss to Venezuela on Wednesday night at Dolphin Stadium. The ball plunked Wright’s big […]
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 in the bottom of the ninth with his team down by one run, several Mets fans in our chat bemoaned the […]
