The "Force" was clearly not with the Mets last night as they lost their third straight game in this series and their fourth straight overall. The umpires have been a big factor in each game, and clearly, the majority of the calls have gone against the Mets. Last night’s call by second base umpire, CB Bucknor, kept the Mets from scoring the tying run and snuffed out a would-be comeback from the Mets. The call [...]
Here are the results of last weeks poll question which asked the question: Do You Want Guillermo Mota On The Post Season Roster? I’m sure it would surprise nobody that an overwhelming 58% of you said NO WAY. I wonder if any of you voted again after last nights debacle? Only 9% of you said that you DEFINITELY wanted Mota to pitch in the post season. A number that I still feel was WAY to high. [...]
Much has been made this year, (especially by me) of the lack of passion and excitement that has been missing from the Mets this year. With the exception of a Paulie LoDuca blow- up it has been pretty monotonous. It’s hard for me to say that when we have the most exciting player in baseball on the team in Jose Reyes… Thankfully, we are soon to get the boost we have been waiting for in [...]
It’s been a long and bumpy ride all season long for the Mets’ long list of would-be number five starters. It started out with so much hope and promise after Mike Pelfrey won the job coming out of Spring Training, but after quickly falling to 0-6, a poorly executed game of musical chairs began. The Mets have lacked a true ace all season long. A true stopper, if you will. It’s prevented the Mets from [...]
For the first time in who knows how long, the Mets finally have all their regulars in the lineup at the same time. With the return of Paul LoDuca and Luis Castillo to the lineup tonight, we get to enjoy the team that Omar Minaya so intelligently put together to win us a World Championship. But don’t get too used to seeing these guys all together out there. In fact, by the time Pedro Martinez [...]
My, how quickly the tide can turn. Two short weeks ago, I myself stated in my weekly piece here at Metsmerized that I was a fan filled with worry and concern. Nothing specifically brought me to feel in the manner I did. The Mets were dreadful; they were winning marginally if at all, and failed to impress by doing so. They resembled not much more than a tired, old, oft-injured, uninspired ball club. To add [...]
The race for the NL East is slowly drawing to an end. The Phillies and Braves are losing steam, and well, we just keep winning. Before Saturday, the Mets scored 5 runs or more in 12 consecutive games. That’s insane for a team who has had several key players out with injuries. The success from players David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes, Luis Castillo, and Moises Alou have really jump-started the team’s chances to lock in [...]
I apologize for the awful play on words, but can anyone dispute the fact that El Duque DOES give his opponents bloody hell? Of course you can’t! El Duque has been "all that and a bag of chips" for the Mets this season, and he has become the unofficial ace of the pitching staff. Would I be stretching the truth if I said that signing El Duque to a 2-year contract in the off season, [...]
Those words may have become a standard in baseball, but not to Kevin Kernan of the New York Post. According to him… It is over! So at 6:47 last night when Aaron Heilman got Luis Gonzalez to bounce into a 1-6-3 double play to give the Mets a 4-3 win over the Dodgers at sweaty Shea Stadium, the NL East race came to a close. Sure, there are magic numbers ahead and the official champagne [...]
