Good morning Mets fans. Today we see Oliver Perez take the mound for the second time this season and I can only hope we see improvement like we did with Johan’s second start. His ability to maintain control was his downfall in the last start and I hope Jerry & Dan were able to correct […]

If you’re talking about his stature and his 6’7″ frame, than by all accounts Mike Pelfrey has earned the nickname of “Big Pelf”. However, if the word “big” is supposed to be indicative of his performance level when he takes the mound, well I’m not buying it. Not yet anyway. The Mets must have bought […]

Since 2006, it’s been said that “As Jose Reyes goes, so do the Mets.” So far, after a scant seven games into the season, the Mets find themselves sitting in 4th place with a 3-4 record. Jose Reyes hasn’t exactly lit things up at the plate or even on the basepaths. It was maddening to […]

Buffalo 5, Scranton 6 Brandon Knight’s first start of the season was pretty bad, he surrendered 8 hits and 5 runs in 5 innings, though he did strike out 7. He escaped the loss because Kei Igawa pitched just as pitifully for the AAA Yankees (how big of a disaster was that signing, lol). Jon […]
