El Duque Dont Need To Cheat To Beat The Likes Of Rollins, Howard and Utley!

An article by posted on June 30, 2007

Charlie Manuel, the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, and the rest of those Philadelphia Cheesecakes may have just catapulted the Mets out of their month long slump on Friday. Besides continuing their usual round of trash talking, this time from starter Cole Hamels, they picked a fight with the wrong guy during game one of the doubleheader when they accused […]

Schoeneweis Has Been A Bust, But The Bullpen Has Improved Lately

An article by posted on June 28, 2007

Before I report on the bullpen, just a little info on tonight’s pitching match-up. Orlando Hernandez will take the mound tonight and try to defeat someone who gave some Mets fans nightmares in the off-season, including Carlos Beltran. Of course I’m talking about Adam Wainwright who takes the mound tonight as a starter rather than […]

Carlos Delgado: The Mets Have Been Down This Road Before

An article by posted on June 28, 2007

Everyone wants to know what the deal is with Carlos Delgado. It’s really plain to see if you ask me. Carlos Delgado has just turned 35. Much like sluggers Jeff Bagwell, Glenn Davis, and Jack Clark to name a few, Delgado has experienced a very sharp decline like they did. The players I mentioned played […]

Mike Pelfrey Gets The Call And Will Start Friday Against The Phillies

An article by posted on June 28, 2007

It’s now official… Mike Pelfrey will indeed start one of the games against the Philadelphia Phillies in Friday’s doubleheader. This move is borne more out of necessity rather than Pelfrey dominating hitters in the minors. He is currently 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA in New Orleans, and has given up 43 hits and 15 walks […]

Mets Fans: Thou Shall Not Walk

An article by posted on June 26, 2007

Can a team intentionally walk an opposing hitter too many times in one game? Morally, I don’t think it is appropriate. But there is no rule in Major League Baseball that limits the number of free passes you can issue a hitter. When the Yankees intentionally walked David Wright THREE times during a Subway Series […]

Randolph Gave Me The Willies Last Night

An article by posted on June 26, 2007

I’m not looking to rag on Willie Randolph, but he really ticked me off for showing up David Wright and getting in his face when he got picked off first base Monday against the Cardinals. It was actually the first time this season that he got caught stealing, but when Wright went into the dugout, Randolph […]

Mets and NL Managing Just Fine…

An article by posted on June 25, 2007

Picture this…the eighth place hitter just doubled in the bottom of the ninth with one out and the game tied at two. Next batter? Not the pitcher. Not a pinch hitter. Not the man who took over the ninth spot in the order when he went in as part of a double switch. Simply, the […]

Know Your Place Rook – Volume Two, And More Monday Morning Rants

An article by posted on June 25, 2007

I hate Mondays, but at least this one this one won’t be so bad because I have a Mets game to look forward to after work. And, might I add, that yesterday’s sweep was absolutely fantastic and that I loved the back page of Newsday this morning with the title "STRAIGHT A’S." ha ha As you all […]

Stay True To The Orange And Blue

An article by posted on June 18, 2007

OK. So the Mets didn’t sweep the Yanks.  They didn’t even take the series.  But they didn’t get swept either.  In fact, the season series is tied at three and the next time these two teams could face each other would be the World Series. Let me sum up this past weekend for those of you who couldn’t bare […]
