Surprise, surprise… For those of you including myself, who thought Joe Smith and Mike Pelfrey would begin the season in New Orleans… think again! Both Smith and Pelfrey were all smiles today when they were told by Willie Randolph they had made the team. Pelfrey and his 8.15 Spring ERA will take the mound against the Braves on Saturday! Smith and his 6.76 Spring ERA will be on hand to bail Pelfrey out if needed. […]

The Mets have not decided on a fifth starter this far into Spring Training. They’re saying Jorge Sosa may get the job, with both Brian Stokes and Joe Smith able to prove themselves worthy of the bullpen. Both Mike Pelfrey and El Duque aren’t ready to start, but I think Pelfrey will be ready before El Duque. I hope they at least give Nelson Figueroa a spot in the bullpen. He has performed consistently throughout […]
The Mets are ready to bring home the brass ring. Everything I’ve seen this spring tells me all I need to know about how dominating the Mets will be in 2008. With 19 Spring Training wins already in the books, it shows that the Mets are ready to move on and get this party started already. I know there are so many of you who put no stock in Spring Training records and stats, but […]
I hardly ever get mixed up in politics. I find it at best to be boring and headache inducing, not to mention listening to divisive politicians who rarely have the best interests of the people at heart. So when I mention it, I try to be as light hearted as possible considering the sensitive nature of the subject. That being said, I thought I would mix up this 3 horse race (Obama, Clinton & […]
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 […]
