I’ve been keeping my eyes wide open and I’ve been spending a great deal of time reading baseball predictions everywhere I go. But all Mets fans know that when Steve Phillips says that the Mets will have the best overall record in the National League, you know we’re sitting pretty! After years and years of dogging the Mets, you know it had to be killing our old GM to say such glowing remarks about his […]
The more I see Lastings Milledge putting up explosive numbers this spring, the more I find myself looking at Ryan Church and scratching my head. Lastings Milledge currently leads the Nationals in at-bats with 66. Ahh… Isn’t it great to be young and healthy? He also is hitting .348 with a .411 on-base percentage. He leads the team in runs scored with 13 and has 9 RBI while slugging an impressive .500 with 6 stolen […]
One of my biggest gripes against Willie Randolph has always been his laid back, one day at a time approach to the game. Don’t get me wrong, I love Willie and I think he’s the perfect manager for the team, but his lack of a sense of urgency really bugs the hell out of me. Last year as the team continued to falter and eventually choked it’s way out of a division title, we kept hearing […]
In what was supposed to be a showcase for the final word on who gets the number five spot in the rotation, both Orlando Hernandez and Mike Pelfrey fell flat on their faces as the Mets fell to the Cardinals 14-4. Each pitcher delivered equally terrible results which now makes a difficult choice for Randolph even tougher. "They didn’t throw too well," Randolph said. "They didn’t step up or distinguish themselves." Sporting his brand-spanking new […]
In what has become a long battle between two pitchers who have failed to take a convincing lead, Mike Pelfrey and Orlando Hernandez now face their last chance to make a lasting impression. In one corner you have youth, and in the other corner you have experience. The problem is that Pelfrey’s youth seems a little too raw for a team who has their eyes on a division title, while El Duque’s experience seems to be a […]
Hard to believe but Spring Training is almost through and the season is slowly creeping up on us… I can’t wait! I feel like I used to as a child on Christmas Eve, when anticipation and anxiety were at their peaks. I think we can expect good things from the Mets performance this year, unlike that unwrapped present from Grandma on Christmas morning which to quote Jeff Foxworthy,” You may not know what’s in it […]
It was mid January; it had proved to be a disastrous off-season for the Mets. Following the well documented and highly criticized collapse of September, the teams most prominent need appeared it would again go unaddressed for a second consecutive off-season. Than, the 29th day on the 2008 calendar emerged, and it became a day in which the Mets starting rotation was instantly altered from being their chief enigma to arguably the most stout in […]
Now that Spring Training is in "full bloom", I thought it would be fun to take a look at the differences between the game that our beloved Metsies play versus the other three major sports – football, basketball and hockey. "Tick-Tock, there is no clock!" Baseball is the only sport not controlled by a time clock. If it takes them a half hour or two hours to play one inning, that’s what it is. Possession […]
After what seemed like an eternity battling kidney stones, I finally got some time to actually sit down and blog a little bit about my Mets. The last time I sat in front of my computer, the Mets were on the verge of acquiring Johan Santana, and I was so overjoyed to see that we finally got our man. With Johan in the fold it means we finally have a bona-fide stopper and it allows […]
