Last night was a great night for Venezuelan Baseball. We all know the story by now, Miguel Cabrera is the first non-American born player to ever hit for the Triple Crown, and even when he didn’t have to – he went out and played in a meaningless game on the road, and had 2 at bats before Manager Jim Leyland took him out of the game. He deserves not only a ton of respect for […]
This will be totally off topic, but we’re Mets fans because we’re baseball fans right? I find this year’s individual awards to be the most fascinating year I can remember. The AL Cy Young is probably between David Price, Justin Verlander and perhaps Fernando Rodney. The NL Cy Young has 5-7 legitimate candidates as I detailed yesterday. The NL MVP is likely going to Buster Posey, but the AL MVP… that’s still in doubt? This […]
Adam Greenberg finally had his dream recognized with the Marlins in last night’s 4-3 routing of the Amazin’s. After years and years of perseverance, over 22,000 signatures, nearly 2,400 minor and independent league at-bats, Greenberg beat the odds for one one-day contract and a second chance at achieving his childhood dream: getting an at-bat in the big leagues. The left hand-hitting outfielder was drafted by the Chicago Cubs out of University of North at Carolina Chapel Hill in the […]
Everybody knows by now the story of Moonlight Graham right? The end result of that story is that he didn’t get a 2nd chance at getting a major league at bat. Well, in front of our very own eyes we will see an ending to a similar story. Guilford, Connecticut resident Adam Greenberg will be playing the part of Moonlight Graham on October 2nd. Don’t know Greenberg’s story? On July 9, 2005 – Adam Greenberg […]
As a fan it’s practically our job to hate Bud Selig, but say whatever you want to say – his plan has worked. The second playoff spot has created the most interesting September I can remember. Realistically in the AL you have 8 out of 14 teams with less than ten games to go and all still have playoff hopes. None of the division leaders would dare choose to win the wild card rather than […]
The season is winding down, and it’s time for me to pick out the FirstPitchMitch All-Stars. The FPM All-Stars are like the All-Madden team of baseball – they are the best of the best. When this team steps in to the stadium the skies open up, and the baseball gods marvel at their creation. Without further ado, I present the first ever FPM All-Stars… Catcher – Yadier Molina Yadier narrowly edged out Buster Posey simply […]
Every morning I take a glance at the standings and the pennant races. There’s nothing like the drama and intensity of a pennant race. It is the essence of the sport. For the record, this morning the Mets are 15 games under .500 and 24 games behind the Nationals with a schedule that could plummet them to 20 below. So much for a pennant race involving the Mets. Even the collapses of 2007 and 2008 […]
The season is winding down, and it’s time to point out some of the things that I have seen taking place at Citi Field this year. Some of the things have been getting under my skin. They are my pet peeves. You have heard of a do’s and don’ts list – well this is a dont’s list. A list of things you should not do while at the ball park. I like to call them […]
It’s September 4th, and the Orioles find themselves one game out of first place in the American League East. That statement, on it’s own, isn’t too ridiculous. It’s when you start looking at the stats that make that statement look ridiculous. The Orioles are not a good baseball team according to the stats. In fact, if you were to look at the league statistical rankings, before looking at the standings, you would think they stink. […]
