Daniel Murphy will hit third and start in left field tonight against the Braves. Fernando Tatis will again start at first base for the injured Carlos Delgado. If Delgado ends up on the DL, look for Murphy to begin getting playing time at first base. Manuel said the team will evaluate Delgado on Friday and will determine if […]

Buffalo 4, Gwinnett 3 in 11 innings Tim McNab picked up a cheap win (it’s the theme of the night), giving up a pair in the top of the 11th, (1 earned, due to a Fernando Martinez error), only to see the Bisons score 3 in the bottom half of the inning for the win. […]

Johan, Intensity and Non Support

An article by posted on May 12, 2009 0 Comments

You can’t win ‘em all, it has been said, but last night’s defeat did sting a tad. For one, the Mets continue to squander sterling Johan Santana performances. He should hire a lawyer and sue the hitters for non-support. Why do the bats take a respite every time the fiery lefty storms the hill? The […]

Last night, I was feeling a little masochistic and I decided that a self imposed torture of listening to WFAN after the game would do the trick. It did. I did manage however to hear an interesting call about Dan Murphy that managed to find a way to sneak in between all the ”Jerry Manuel sucks” calls, and the “this […]

I Got Two Big Problems With This Loss

1. Why did he take out Johan Santana when he was the only pitcher best equipped to get out of that inning? I don’t care if Johan Santana had already thrown over 100 pitches. The guy is a warrior and wanted to stay in the game. Plus even if he was a little winded, 80% […]
