The calendar has turned to the point that proved to be the demise of the 2007 New York Mets. September has arrived once again, after an offseason filled with questions of a possible mental hangover, the Mets of this campaign appear poised to lay those demons to rest. Entering the Summer Olympic Games a few weeks ago, the United States men’s basketball team was dubbed as being “The Redeem Team.” The tag fits perfect with […]
Three up on the Phillies in the NL East with 22 left to play. Not in as good shape (standings-wise) than the 2007 Mets at this time. At this time last year, the Mets had a stronger lead in the NL East. However, last year, at this point, the writing was on the wall. 2007 was not to be for the NY Mets. I recall a dread about the team’s prospect for post season hopes. […]
Let’s give it up for Carlos Beltran! The knock on Beltran after his first season with the Mets was that he was soft. How ridiculous… He is anything but soft. Time and time again we have seen him crash into walls, limping off the field, and what not. And yet each and every time he bounces back without a DL stint, usually playing again the very next day or within a day or two. Carlos […]
Josh Thomson of the Journal News spoke to September callup and top Mets prospect, Bobby Parnell. The Mets’ top pitching prospect, Jonathon Niese, got the start last night, but perhaps the next best young arm is Bobby Parnell. The 6-foot-3 right-hander was among 10 call-ups, nine of whom joined the team when rosters expanded yesterday. The 23-year-old Parnell made 29 starts in Binghamton and New Orleans this season but will join the bullpen here. His last […]
When Mets fans first heard the term Generation K back in the nineties, it would invoke hope and dreams of a Mets dynasty. The term referred to three highly touted Mets prospects; Jason Isringhausen, Bill Pulsipher and best of all, Paul Wilson. They were supposed to lead the Mets from relative obscurity to the World Series, just like Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman and Gary Gentry did in 1969. Today, when you utter those words to […]
On the surface July 21, 2004 seemed like a pretty good day for the Mets. We defeated the Expos 5-4 at Shea with a run in the bottom of the 8th. We reached the .500 mark (47-47) and were just three games behind the Phillies. Orber Moreno picked up the win in relief of starter Jae Seo and Braden Looper collected his 20th save of the year. Hidden in all of this was the uneventful […]
September 1 1890: In the first Triple Header ever played, the Brooklyn Bridegrooms take all 3 from the Pittsburgh Allegheny’s, 10-9, 3-2 and 8-4. 1902: The most famous DP combination ever, Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers and Frank Chance, play together for the very first time. 1912: In a highly publicized pitching duel, Smokey Joe Wood of Boston defeats Walter Johnson of Washington, 1-0. 1958: Cards pitcher Vinegar Bend Mizell walks 9, but still manages a […]
I came across this blurb by Bart Hubbuch in the NY Post. Manuel said he will consider pinch-hitting more often for right fielder Ryan Church, who is scuffling a bit at the plate since coming back from a seven-week absence due to post-concussion syndrome. Church is hitting .158 (3-for-19) in his past six games after a 0-for-3 outing last night. “Ryan hasn’t quite gotten into the flow yet,” Manuel said. “We gave him a couple […]
With every game that passes, a Met fan’s life expectancy drops three years during this divisional race. Why did the Little League World Series championship team from Hawaii look like nine Shane Victorino’s running around out there last week? Seriously, one is enough! Since when does, A.) a bunion sideline you for an entire season, and B.) surgery on said bunion threaten to end your career? Hey El Duque, come on bro, it’s a BIG TOE. Why is it […]
