An article by posted on April 15, 2008

What a way to open a series! There were so many bright spots in this game I don’t know where to begin, but let me start with Mike Pelfrey who pitched a gem tonight at Shea Stadium. Pelfrey’s fastball was popping and his slider was devastating to the Nationals hitters. He pitched seven solid innings […]

Just Another Manic Monday…

An article by posted on April 14, 2008

Happy Monday… kind of an oxymoron if you ask me. Right up there with “Smart Jock” and “Classy Phillies”.   It has been a rough week for our beloved Mets, which in turn makes it a worse week for fans. Hopefully starting Tuesday night against the “Gnats”, things will finally turn around. It’s a good […]

Should We Go Back To A 3-4-5 of Beltran, Delgado and Wright?

An article by posted on April 14, 2008

Mets losses always get me to start thinking and yes even overreacting. I was wondering about a few things while I watched the game, and I wanted to discuss one of them with you. Last season we had to switch the 3-4-5 spots in the batting order because of Delgado’s slump. Now that he is […]

Mets Lack Of Execution Gives Randolph The Willies

An article by posted on April 13, 2008

The usually mild mannered Willie Randolph, was anything but that during his post game press conference this afternoon. A visibly distraught Randolph was as critical of his team’s performance than at any time since he took control of the team. “That put a damper on a nice off-day, huh? Jeez,” Randolph said after the Mets […]

Boo, What Is It Good For? Absolutely Nothing…

An article by posted on April 12, 2008

When listening to the opening introductions on the last Opening Day at Shea I intently heard the loud disdain for some members of the Phillies.  When Jimmy Rollins’ name was announced I think the boos were so loud it put another crack in the Liberty Bell.  OK I get it, I’ve been paying attention, I […]

Ben Sheets rained all over Johan Santana’s Shea Stadium debut, and masterfully out-pitched our new ace as the Milwaukee Brewers topped the Mets 5-3 on Saturday. Three home runs by Bill Hall, Rickie Weeks and Gabe Kapler helped end Santana’s day and a three-game losing streak. He lasted 6 2-3 innings and allowed five runs […]

Same Old Song and Dance?

An article by posted on April 11, 2008

When Angel Pagan hit the game winning single in the bottom of the 12th inning yesterday, it marked the first time I was excited for the Mets, and I mean really excited for the Mets, since Johan Santana opened up the season in Miami. Really though, the Mets were playing Triple-A players and Hanley Ramirez […]

Mets Can Exhale As Big Pelf Arrives

Perhaps as crucial as adding Johan Santana was to the Mets pitching staff over the off-season, was general manager Omar Minaya’s decision to retain Mike Pelfrey. After all, at the time of the deal he was the most developed young pitcher the organization had to speak of. Philip Humber and Kevin Mulvey possessed promise, but […]

Will Mike Pelfrey Force Omar Minaya’s Hand

For every action there is a reaction. If Mike Pelfrey fails to deliver a solid performance, the reaction by Mets General Manager, Omar Minaya will be quick and far-reaching. After bringing perhaps baseball’s best pitcher in Johan Santana this off-season, things have gotten sour in a hurry in what was portrayed as a formidable starting rotation. […]
