Last night was just another game that was too difficult to watch, and in fact I was overcome with sleep for the last inning. The Mets lost to the Dodgers 9-1, and the game was as ugly as the score would indicate. Just as they had in their previous five contests, the Mets jumped out with an early lead after scratching out a run in the first inning, and then failed to score again for [...]
Paul Lo Duca, who happens to be my favorite current Met, has fallen to second place behind Russ Martin in the All Star voting. I will do everything in my power to make sure that does not happen. Please click on the All Star voting link in the right column and vote for your team. You can vote up to 25 times with one email account, so I expect each of you to vote at [...]
If the Mets think things are going to get any easier for them after losing three straight series to the Diamondbacks, Phillies and Tigers, think again. Tonight they begin a three game series against a Los Angeles Dodgers team that has arguably the best starting pitching in the National League. They meet for the first time since last season’s National League Divisional Series. The Mets swept the Dodgers in that series, and you can expect [...]
In March he wasn’t even wanted on the team by most Mets fans. He was hitting about .150 in Spring Training and everyone was hoping for Lastings Milledge to supplant him in right field. Of course, I’m talking about Shawn Green. Tomorrow Green will rejoin the team, and Mets fans will welcome him back with open arms. Shawn Green has gone from least wanted to keeper, and all it took was two months and a [...]
The Mets announced that they have optioned David Newhan to AAA and called up outfielder Ricky Ledee from New Orleans. Here is some of the text from their Press Release… The New York Mets selected the contract of outfielder Ricky Ledee from New Orleans (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League today and optioned infielder/outfielder David Newhan to the Zephyrs. Ledee will wear #9 and will be available for tonight’s game at Detroit. Ledee batted .287 [...]
Despite their division leading record, we have yet to see the Mets clicking on all cylinders. Throughout the first two months of the season, they have been plagued by an assortment of injuries that has greatly impacted their ability to score runs consistently. They have now lost three straight for the first time this season, and are on the verge of being swept, also for the first time this season. The Mets finally got Carlos Beltran back [...]
The Mets have scheduled an MRI for Thursday morning for Endy Chavez to determine the severity of his hamstring injury. Endy Chavez seemed to be in much pain and some believe a trip to the Disabled List is unavoidable. Chavez pulled up lame while trying to beat out a double play with the bases loaded in tonight’s loss to the Phillies. He had to be carried off the field. Mets Merized will continue to monitor [...]
Pedro Martinez took another huge step toward his return today at Port St. Lucie. For the first time since undergoing rotator cuff surgery, Pedro threw 31 pitches off the mound and had very positive results. Here is some of what was being reported by AP… The three-time Cy Young Award winner threw 31 pitches after warming up with seven throws. Before that, he threw on flat ground from 120 feet at the Mets’ spring training [...]
In a reversal that may be stunning to some but certainly not to Mets fans, the Philadelphia Phillies have pulled back on their earlier assertions when players such as Brett Myers and Jimmy Rollins said that the the Phillies were the team to beat. This morning, Randy Miller of phillyBlurbs.com had several interesting quotes regarding this new found revelation for several of the Phillies’ players. The Phillies now admit Jimmy Rollins was wrong. Just like [...]
What is the deal with so many Met fans freaking out about the chants at Shea?? I don’t get the people who say things like no chanting "Yankees Suck" because we’re Mets fans… It’s because I’m a Mets fan that I will continue to raise the roof at Shea whenever I see the scoreboard flash a Yankees loss! I just got two messages on our myspace page. (It’s what prompted this blog!) 1. Do Met [...]
Can somebody please explain to me why so many Yankee fans keep saying that what A-Rod did the other day against the Blue Jays happens all the time? All the time??? What baseball games have they been watching??? For those of you who have been living under a rock the past 5 days, Alex Rodriguez interfered with a play when third baseman Howie Clark camped under an infield popup, but backed off after Rodriguez ran slowly past him and shouted [...]
