Mets losses always get me to start thinking and yes even overreacting. I was wondering about a few things while I watched the game, and I wanted to discuss one of them with you. Last season we had to switch the 3-4-5 spots in the batting order because of Delgado’s slump. Now that he is hitting the heck out of the ball again, should we revert back to a 3-4-5 of Beltran, Delgado, and Wright? […]
The usually mild mannered Willie Randolph, was anything but that during his post game press conference this afternoon. A visibly distraught Randolph was as critical of his team’s performance than at any time since he took control of the team. “That put a damper on a nice off-day, huh? Jeez,” Randolph said after the Mets fell below .500 (5-6) with an overall ugly display at Shea. “Hitting into five double plays is what happens when […]
When listening to the opening introductions on the last Opening Day at Shea I intently heard the loud disdain for some members of the Phillies. When Jimmy Rollins’ name was announced I think the boos were so loud it put another crack in the Liberty Bell. OK I get it, I’ve been paying attention, I know why the Met Fan characteristically boos him and others, such at Pat Burrell, Chase Utley and other players from […]
Ben Sheets rained all over Johan Santana’s Shea Stadium debut, and masterfully out-pitched our new ace as the Milwaukee Brewers topped the Mets 5-3 on Saturday. Three home runs by Bill Hall, Rickie Weeks and Gabe Kapler helped end Santana’s day and a three-game losing streak. He lasted 6 2-3 innings and allowed five runs and six hits with two walks, striking out seven and throwing two wild pitches. On the other side, Ben Sheets […]
When Angel Pagan hit the game winning single in the bottom of the 12th inning yesterday, it marked the first time I was excited for the Mets, and I mean really excited for the Mets, since Johan Santana opened up the season in Miami. Really though, the Mets were playing Triple-A players and Hanley Ramirez at best. The true tests, Atlanta and Philadelpia came and went. The Mets went 2-3 in those five games. The […]
Add to that knowledgeable, loyal, indiscriminate, relentless, forgiving, unforgiving, manic and obsessive… fill in the rest. We can be found all over the country and in every corner of the world. Every now and then I enjoy looking at our site statistics and marvel at the places some of our readers come from. Just this week we hailed visitors from Dubai, Iraq, Australia, South Africa, Netherlands and even the Philippines. The reasons that led us […]
Perhaps as crucial as adding Johan Santana was to the Mets pitching staff over the off-season, was general manager Omar Minaya’s decision to retain Mike Pelfrey. After all, at the time of the deal he was the most developed young pitcher the organization had to speak of. Philip Humber and Kevin Mulvey possessed promise, but were not deemed to be at the talent level of Pelfrey at the present time and probably not ever. […]
For every action there is a reaction. If Mike Pelfrey fails to deliver a solid performance, the reaction by Mets General Manager, Omar Minaya will be quick and far-reaching. After bringing perhaps baseball’s best pitcher in Johan Santana this off-season, things have gotten sour in a hurry in what was portrayed as a formidable starting rotation. Pedro Martinez was lost only 3 1/3 innings into the season, and Orlando Hernandez has yet to throw his first […]

Luis Castillo is complaining of sore surgically repaired knees and […]
