September 1 1890: In the first Triple Header ever played, the Brooklyn Bridegrooms take all 3 from the Pittsburgh Allegheny’s, 10-9, 3-2 and 8-4. 1902: The most famous DP combination ever, Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers and Frank Chance, play together for the very first time. 1912: In a highly publicized pitching duel, Smokey Joe Wood of Boston defeats Walter Johnson of Washington, 1-0. 1958: Cards pitcher Vinegar Bend Mizell walks 9, but still manages a […]
I came across this blurb by Bart Hubbuch in the NY Post. Manuel said he will consider pinch-hitting more often for right fielder Ryan Church, who is scuffling a bit at the plate since coming back from a seven-week absence due to post-concussion syndrome. Church is hitting .158 (3-for-19) in his past six games after a 0-for-3 outing last night. “Ryan hasn’t quite gotten into the flow yet,” Manuel said. “We gave him a couple […]
Last night, the New York Mets were down to their last strike. Luis Castillo got on base, followed by David Wright and Carlos Delgado. Enter Carlos Beltran. The first pitch he sees off Kevin Gregg ends up in the right-center field stands, in the section of Dolphin Stadium aptly known as the “Fish Tank.” And with that swing of the bat, Carlos Beltran single-handedly beat the Marlins. Welcome to another installment of “Hot or Not.” […]
Mike Pelfrey is obviously the present and the future of this Mets rotation. With Ollie and Pedro facing free agency, and with John Maine’s shutdown, our Opening Day 2009 rotation is very much up in the air. Barring any major free agent signing (i.e. CC Sabathia), Mike Pelfrey is on pace to become our #2 guy behind Johan Santana. And yes, we are talking about the same Mike Pelfrey that barely made the rotation at […]
Putting away all the recent discourse regarding Carlos Delgado for just a moment, I was wondering how the Mets were going to deal with a more pressing issue at the end of this season. What about Pedro Martinez and Oliver Perez? Obviously their situations differ greatly from that of Delgado because the Mets have an option on their first baseman, and Perez and Pedro both walk at the end of the season. But, how should […]
AUGUST 29: 1887: Denny Lyons of the Philadelphia A’s is held hitless and his consecutive game hitting streak ends at 52 games. 1948: Led by Jackie Robinson, who hits for the cycle, Brooklyn defeats STL, 12-7. 1951: The Yankees trade Lew Burdette to the Braves for Johnny Sain. Six years later, the Braves defeat the Yankees in a 7 game World Series. The hero for the Braves is Lew Burdette, who tosses 3 complete game […]
Two times last night, Jose Reyes was doubled-up off of first base after a flyball was caught in the outfield. Fortunately for Jose and the Mets, Ryan Howard was unable to handle the first ball (or his glove for that matter), and Jose returned safely to first base. This first inning blunder could have cost the Mets their first run. Is this just an example of Jose trying to do too much or is this […]
I guess today is Carlos Delgado Day on Mets Merized Online. Well, why not? While some can say that this Mets resurgence lies squarely with Interim Manager Jerry Manuel, can anybody deny that he couldn’t have done it without Delgado? Not only is Delgado doing the right things at the plate, but he even has picked up his performance defensively, continues to provide veteran leadership in the clubhouse and he always seems to be saying the right […]
While there were a few bright spots in last night’s Mets loss to the Phillies, one particular thing stands out in my mind. Forgive me for not being able to recall the inning, but Damion Easley was at the plate, with a chance to hit for the cycle (only needing a double), and with Jose Reyes on first, Easley drops a drag bunt down the third base line, beating out the throw and giving the […]
