An article by posted on May 24, 2009 0 Comments

This morning I voiced my concerns about assuming that K-Rod could be done for weeks and even months. I said to leave the diagnosing to the professionals and cited my my own experiences with people who suffered back spasms like K-Rod and were back at work in a few days. I urged everyone to just be […]

The short answer is, nobody knows. I’ve read a half dozen articles today regarding Frankie Rodriguez, and while a couple of them are painting a gloom and doom scenario, I say leave the diagnosing to the professionals and keep hope alive. I know many a person who had severe back spasms that prevented them from walking or even […]

I thought the Mets made a mistake when they decided they would put Bobby Parnell in the bullpen to start the season. Boy was I ever wrong! The more I see of this kid, the more there is to like. I’ve heard his name in trade rumors all off season long and even this season […]

Spirit of ’86

Whenever the Mets and Red Sox square off in their rare interleague meetings, even a casual Mets fan can’t help but think of the 1986 World Series.  Their seven-game showdown was one for the ages, culminating in the World Championship trophy being brought to Shea.  During this weekend’s interleague series between the Mets and Sox, […]

Everyone Pray for Frankie

An article by posted on May 23, 2009 0 Comments

The unusual absence of our star closer had me concerned during the game. They spanned the bullpen with the cameras during the 9th inning as JJ Putz was on the mound, and Frankie was no where to be found. After the win, we waited for Jerry Manuel’s press conference because we knew someone would ask him […]

The Mets play game two of this inter-league series against the Boston Red Sox. Mets took game one despite the lack of defense behind Santana. “He’s making his pitches, and he’s executing his pitches, but we’re not executing on our end defensively,” manager Jerry Manuel said. “And to some degree, that has to be frustrating.

Can We Ditch Ramon Martinez Now?

An article by posted on May 23, 2009 0 Comments

I have seen all I can stand of Ramon Martinez filling in at shortstop. He may go down in Mets history as the worst shortstop ever to field the position. Four errors in three games?  Even Fernando Tatis couldn’t possibly do any worse than Martinez, so why not have him fill in for Reyes so […]

Wanna Know How Good Santana Is?

An article by posted on May 23, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets defense keeps finding themselves in all sorts of predicaments when Santana is on the mound. Seven unearned runs as a result of 11 errors behind Johan. Usually you rely a team’s defense to bail the pitcher out of a jam. In Santana’s case, it’s the pitcher who bails his team out of their jams. That’s how […]
