Willie Randolph inherited the wrath of the fans tonight when he came out to take the ball from Aaron Heilman who had just allowed four Nationals to cross the plate and take the lead in the seventh inning. The boos were twice as loud and twice as thunderous than the ones that greeted Heilman as he walked back to the dugout. For some reason Willie keeps sending Heilman out in close games, only to take […]
What the hell was with the Nationals Monday night, specifically, Elijah Dukes and Lenny Harris? It was like little league out there. A last place team chanting in the dugout, during a meaningless game, as each player stepped into the batter’s box. Were they that bored? That cold? Figueroa had the perfect response, if you were observant enough to read his lips as he walked off the mound at the end of the inning. But […]
The Mets have announced that RHP Nelson Figueroa and reliever Jorge Sosa have been designated for assignment. Claudio Vargas has been called up from New Orleans and reliever Matt Wise has been activated from the Disabled List. They have also placed outfielder Angel Pagan on the 15-day disabled list with an injured shoulder and called up Fernando Tatis who was tearing it up in New Orleans. Maybe it was a fear of public fan backlash… Maybe it […]
Yet another Monday has come and followed a weekend series where the Mets have taken 2 out of 3 games from an opponent and as a result I have a little more spring in my step today. It was nice to see Carlos Beltran have a good day, he certainly was due for one. Maybe the pink bats and equipment the Mets used should be the unofficial new colors this season… that is, if they can continue to hit […]
"It’s just a spring clean for the May queen. Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run There’s still time to change the road you’re on. And it makes me wonder." With apologies to Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, I have to disagree because I am a little alarmed. The Mets really do have two paths they can go down… and it does makes me wonder… Path One – […]
I love this game! There’s nothing else like it… Yesterday one of our regular readers pointed me to a fact that has gone widely unnoticed by many Mets fans. He told me that the only two Mets batting over .300 were Ryan Church and Brian Schneider. That’s right… the two players we got in the much maligned Lastings Milledge trade were the top two hitters on the Mets. Sorry for ever doubting you Omar, can […]
Willie Randolph has an appointment with destiny at the end of the month regarding his job security. The owners will meet with Omar Minaya and I assume Willie Randolph, to evaluate the team’s performance as well as Willie. <begin humming Taps> Like the majority of fans, I like Willie a lot. I think he’s accomplished many great things for the Mets in the short time that he has been here. Unfortunately though, he has rustled […]
Welcome back to another addition of Hot and Not. The Mets have shown great strides towards improvement, but they had good numbers against Brad Penny to begin with. Hopefully, they’ll sweep this doubleheader and they get the confidence they need. Who’s HotMoises Alou: Okay, so he’s only played in a couple of games. And he may need time to get his swagger back. But the man is certainly making up for lost time. Any 41-year-old who […]
The most predominant question in my mind has been if the Mets have the fire within them to succeed. For whatever reason, to me, it seems like the Mets of September have simply just carried over into 2008. They’re not playing with the same zest and enthusiasm that they played with in 2006 and most of 2007. Obviously, the Mets do have a fire and a passion. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t even be playing […]
