Part of being a Mets fan in 2011 seems to be that you are segmented off into two groups. One group, wants the future to be bright while hoping to remain competitive. The other group seems to want to focus on 2011, and only 2011.  To me, the second group is what got us in […]

Don’t Look Now, But Beltran Has Been As Good As Ever

With all the news surrounding Jose Reyes and his incredible season that he is having, we often forget the main-man driving him in, Carlos Beltran. Beltran, after two injury-riddled seasons, was expected to have an above average season at best in 2011. But the 34-year old now right fielder has not only exceeded what anyone […]

An article by posted on June 30, 2011 0 Comments

Game Summary True NL vs AL fashion here tonight. Sixteen runs scored for the Mets on twenty hits…and no homeruns. Tigers smashed in five over the fence. Totally different styles of scoring. Cap gets hit hard to end his good start streak. Bullpen is embarrassing, but offense can win ball games alone it seems like. […]

Jose Reyes, Ty Cobb and the $64,000 Dollar Question

Jose Reyes, made his 1,000th career game last night against the Detroit Tigers a memorable one. The game’s most dynamic player, went 4-for-4 at the plate with a walk and three runs scored. He was just a home run shy of hitting for the cycle; being the last Met to perform the feat. There is nothing Jose Reyes […]

Buffalo Bisons 3 – Leigh Valley IronPigs 6 I expect Jack Egbert to be this ineffective, but what I don’t expect him to be is this wild. Egbert lasted for only 81 pitches tonight and only 45 of those were strikes (55%). He only gave up two walks, but with his stuff he needs to […]
