The Mets are desperate. “We really, really have put ourselves in a tough spot,” manager Jerry Manuel said. “And we’re the only ones to blame for that. We had opportunities and didn’t get it done.” Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Mets are asking Johan Santana to pitch on three days rest and start in todays game against the Marlins. Supposedly, the Mets’ ace went to Jerry Manuel and said that he would be willing to […]
Almost to the exact day as last year, the Mets find themselves again on the verge of elimination at the hands of the Florida Marlins. What is it about the Mets that can energize and motivate a team like the Marlins to deriving such pleasure from delivering the final blow to the Mets? Former Mets catcher and current Marlin, Paul LoDuca believes it’s not really the Mets player’s attitudes like so many believe. “It’s a low […]
Here we go Mets fans! It’s been quite a year of ups and downs for the Mets, but we are still alive and well and that’s all that matters. The Mets enter the final three games in second place and only one game behind the Philadelphia Phillies. They are in a flat-footed tie with the Brewers for the Wild Card spot. Wow, I can’t believe it comes to this… Here are the probable pitchers for […]
Choke – [chohk] verb 2007 New York Mets 2008 New York Mets Should the 2008 New York Mets find their way into the playoffs, should they make to the big dance, should they be crowned World Series Champs this year, I will not look back on the 2008 New York Mets as a team I enjoyed watching. This is not a winning ball club. I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed watching a […]
Last night’s loss will reverberate with this team for a long time. It may just have been the most demoralizing loss of the season. It was clearly a maddening display of poor execution at the plate and a lack of pure baseball instincts and intellect. David Wright swinging wildly at ball four in the ninth inning with the winning run only 90 feet away is an image I won’t soon forget. With the Mets tied, and young […]
That’s right. No wild card for us. We want the division. While it normally wouldn’t matter how we got it in, this year we have something to prove. After the disappointing finish to the 2007 season, the Mets and their fans should not stand to hand it to the Phillies again. However, I do begin to worry when I think that even if we do make it to the playoffs, how long can we go with the dreadful […]
I keep waiting for something positive to happen… I’m looking for a sign… An omen… Anything… What can I say about Jon Niese? Last week against Atlanta I was so wowed by him I couldn’t stop talking about him for days on end. Now, I don’t know what to say. Seeing him serve up that grand slam to the opposing pitcher, Jason Marquis… well let’s just say I knew it was over right there and then. […]
If the season ended today, the Mets would be on their way to the post season… So why am I so down? Scott Schoeneweis, was speechless after yesterdays loss. “There’s no explanation anymore. I just don’t know what to say. We’re not consistently making big pitches at big times. We do it one night, we don’t do it the next night. There’s really nothing more to say or explain or philosophize about.” What a loser… We’ve […]
On the surface, the MVP is a bit misleading. The person who does not follow Baseball would think the MVP award goes to the best hitter or top pitcher. This is not the case. The best pitcher wins the Cy Young Award. The top hitter may win the Silver Slugger Award or the Home Run title. The Most Valuable Player is just that: The Most Valuable. It goes to the one individual who has the […]
