An article by posted on April 22, 2009 0 Comments

Not too long ago, Mets fans were second-guessing the decision to sign Luis Castillo to such a long-term deal. But Castillo is off to an amazing start this year, beginning last night 4th in the league in hitting, and he continued his hot streak last night against the Cardinals. David Wright, on the other hand, […]

I don’t post as many links to other interesting Mets blog posts and articles as much as I did in the off season. Mostly because there’s always a million things to write about everyday with the Mets now that the season is in full throttle.  MetsBlog usually does a good job pointing Mets fans to some good reads, […]

Where Does Dan Murphy Fit In The Long Term?

Dan Murphy is a good kid and a hard worker, as Jerry Manuel said yesterday, “He has done everything we have asked of him”. His performance at the plate has been solid and he currently wields a .320 average to go with his team leading 12 runs scored. As a table setter and number two […]

The Not-Ready-For-Prime-Time Players

Losing 6-4 to the Cards isn’t the story. It’s how the Mets lost that’s darkening every fans mood. How can so much badly played baseball be packed into 9 innings! Perez returned to his bad self. Four decent innings, and that’s all she wrote. Loss of control, and then batting practice. Yadier owns us. We […]

I think everyone understands what signing Gary Sheffield was going to mean for Ryan Church. Obviously based on how much Sheffield has accomplished in his career, we all knew it would lead to some complications in terms of finding playing time for everyone. That said, it was still tough to see one of our hottest […]

Forget LOB, Where’s The Stolen Bases?

An article by posted on April 21, 2009 0 Comments

For the last three seasons we’ve been spoiled by the speed of Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and David Wright. The Mets were among the league leaders each season in stolen bases, and speed was a big part of our game. But so far this season, the team’s stolen bases are down and not where we […]

The NY Post is reporting that what began early yesterday morning after George Willis of the NY Post outed the Mets for insulting our beloved Doctor K, has ended in a complete about-face by the New York Mets. It all started when George Willis’ column in yesterday’s Post reported that the Mets planned to erase […]

I know that we’re only 12 games into the season.  I know that today’s date is April 21, 2009 and “it’s only April.”  I know that there are 150 games left to play before the season ends on Sunday, October 4, 2009 against the Houston Astros at Citi Field.  I also know so far this […]

Relax. Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day.

We all need to take a deep breath, relax and step back for a moment. The season is two weeks old and already it appears many fans have given up on our Mets. Yes, this season has been frustrating so far. Yes, this team has failed to get the big hit when needed. We have […]

What The Heck Was That All About?

Talk about your classic head scratchers. I would have loved to be a fly in the room when Omar and his brain-trust made the decision to DFA Darren O’Day, promote Nelson Figueroa, DFA Figueroa 18 hours later and promote Casey Fossum. I bet the conversation went just like this… Omar: Have a seat fellas, we […]
