Will Everyone Chill Out About Beltran Already…

An article by posted on April 22, 2009 0 Comments

I wish everyone would stop flapping about Beltran not sliding already. All day I’ve read and heard nothing but countless swipes and insults at the guy, negative posts and articles, trash talking on him like crazy on sports talk radio, and even getting his head bashed in on SNY. Enough already! The way the play developed […]

Buffalo 1, Scranton 6 Freddy Garcia allowed 3 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks in 6 inning in his first outing of the season, enough for the loss tonight, as the Bisons had another inept showing offensively, collecting 8 hits and a walk, but they were just 1 for 6 with RISP and left […]

Dan Murphy is a good kid and a hard worker, as Jerry Manuel said yesterday, “He has done everything we have asked of him”. His performance at the plate has been solid and he currently wields a .320 average to go with his team leading 12 runs scored. As a table setter and number two […]

Losing 6-4 to the Cards isn’t the story. It’s how the Mets lost that’s darkening every fans mood. How can so much badly played baseball be packed into 9 innings! Perez returned to his bad self. Four decent innings, and that’s all she wrote. Loss of control, and then batting practice. Yadier owns us. We […]

Buffalo 7, Scranton 3 The Bisons used a 4 run 8th to erase a 3-2 deficit and hand the Yankees their first loss of the season. Nick Evans nightmare season, however, continued, as he went 0 for 4 with another pair of Ks, he’s now struck out 15 times in 45 ABs, and is rocking […]
