The Mets are floundering. They are a team that intimidates nobody. They are laughed at, joked about, pushed around, and chanted at by even the worst teams in the league. How can they possibly believe they can win a division title under these circumstances? Yesterday, another great pitching performance was squandered and wasted by an offense that is mediocre at best and inept, inadequate and incredibly incompetent at worst. Actually check that… the latter […]
Willie has it all wrong… He needs to wake up and smell the coffee… Yesterday, his excuse for bringing in Aaron Heilman, a move that cost the Mets a win, was that he wanted to get a couple of innings out of him, so the bullpen would be rested for the weekend. What’s he thinking? Why not worry about winning the game at hand first? Isn’t that the way it oughta’ be? To make matters […]
I have to. I just have to. I couldn’t sleep all night thinking about the mess that happened last night. True, with few minor exceptions, the Mets bats were not awake until the latter part of the game, but the end result would have been enough to win or at least force extra innings and have a shot at winning had Heilman not loused things up again. I blame Heilman for not pitching well. But I […]
Willie Randolph inherited the wrath of the fans tonight when he came out to take the ball from Aaron Heilman who had just allowed four Nationals to cross the plate and take the lead in the seventh inning. The boos were twice as loud and twice as thunderous than the ones that greeted Heilman as he walked back to the dugout. For some reason Willie keeps sending Heilman out in close games, only to take […]
What the hell was with the Nationals Monday night, specifically, Elijah Dukes and Lenny Harris? It was like little league out there. A last place team chanting in the dugout, during a meaningless game, as each player stepped into the batter’s box. Were they that bored? That cold? Figueroa had the perfect response, if you were observant enough to read his lips as he walked off the mound at the end of the inning. But […]
The Mets have announced that RHP Nelson Figueroa and reliever Jorge Sosa have been designated for assignment. Claudio Vargas has been called up from New Orleans and reliever Matt Wise has been activated from the Disabled List. They have also placed outfielder Angel Pagan on the 15-day disabled list with an injured shoulder and called up Fernando Tatis who was tearing it up in New Orleans. Maybe it was a fear of public fan backlash… Maybe it […]
Yet another Monday has come and followed a weekend series where the Mets have taken 2 out of 3 games from an opponent and as a result I have a little more spring in my step today. It was nice to see Carlos Beltran have a good day, he certainly was due for one. Maybe the pink bats and equipment the Mets used should be the unofficial new colors this season… that is, if they can continue to hit […]
"It’s just a spring clean for the May queen. Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run There’s still time to change the road you’re on. And it makes me wonder." With apologies to Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, I have to disagree because I am a little alarmed. The Mets really do have two paths they can go down… and it does makes me wonder… Path One – […]
I love this game! There’s nothing else like it… Yesterday one of our regular readers pointed me to a fact that has gone widely unnoticed by many Mets fans. He told me that the only two Mets batting over .300 were Ryan Church and Brian Schneider. That’s right… the two players we got in the much maligned Lastings Milledge trade were the top two hitters on the Mets. Sorry for ever doubting you Omar, can […]
