Mets slugger David Wright played catch and took some ground balls from his knees yesterday, a welcomed first step in his recovery process. This was the first baseball-related activity Wright has done since going on the DL in Mid-May. [blackbirdpie url="http://twitter.com/#!/ESPNNewYork/status/82570185525039105"] Wright said afterwords that he “felt good” and he will see a doctor late in the week […]

Watch What You Do

Here are my thoughts on teams being buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. As long as you are well within ten games of a Wild Card you should NOT be sellers. Not when there’s still a third of a season left to play. Remember 1973.  If you do start selling off players at that […]

The Myths of Omar and Sandy

An article by posted on June 20, 2011 0 Comments

From the day he was hired, to the day he was fired I was often called an “Omar apologist.” I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase before right? Basically from what I deducted from that was “not everything Omar does is garbage,” therefore I am apologizing for him.  Recently, I’ve seen a lot of negativity towards […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 11)

Intangibles – a simple word that can mean so much more. As much as I live and die by the statistics, in fact, probably more than the average non-sabermetric fan… I’m always looking for the intangible things; the things that can’t be measured by any statistic but still have an impact on the game. For […]

Buffalo Bisons 16 – Norfolk Tides 2 This offense outburst came out of nowhere. The Bisons got off to an 11-0 lead before Norfolk even got on the scoreboard. The amazing part is how much scoring they did with two outs. Val Pascuccci broke the ice with a two-run home run in the 1st inning, […]

It’s Time to Move On From Failure

There are so many different opinions on this Jose Reyes saga, and frankly I’m ready for it all to be over. I think I’ve heard it all. I think part of the problem frankly is that the folks who are pro-long term Reyes think that people like myself dislike Reyes and that is why we […]

Pelfrey: Standing Tall At Home

Look at the photo to the left. That was the linescore from last night’s game, a complete game victory by Mike Pelfrey in which Big Pelf was voted co-player of the game with Carlos Beltran (who hit a monster two-run homer that was estimated at 460 feet). It was the first complete game of the […]

Pelfrey Pitches Much Better With A Veteran Backstop

An article by posted on June 19, 2011 0 Comments

Mike Pelfrey has not exactly been consistent over the past one and a half seasons, but more often than not, when Pelfrey is locked in and pitching well, 60 feet, 6 inches away is a veteran backstop calling the game. Pelfrey has always been a pitcher that has trouble stopping the bleeding once the going […]

Buffalo Bisons 3 | Norfolk Tides 11 Talk about a throw away season. Josh Stinson has been just downright awful all year long and tonight was no different. He gave up seven runs in three innings tonight and that is actually his longest outing in his last three starts. Those three starts have lasted 1.1, […]
