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 [...]

A (adv.) – St. Lucie Mets (19-29) 5/21 – The Mets fell behind early against the Clearwater Treshers and lost 9-6. Despite back-to-back HR’s in the 6th, the Mets couldn’t push another rally.

Those runs raised his ERA to 5.30 for [...]

Either Willie Randolph read yesterday’s post on this site, or he actually came to his senses. Whatever the case may be, Carlos Delgado has been removed from the clean-up spot and dropped to the number six spot in the order for today’s lineup against the Braves. It was a long time coming and hopefully the move will help the team offensively and give Delgado some time TO find his power stroke without hurting the team. I [...]
The Mets got a day off to shake off the dust of the Subway Series and move on to the business at hand. Sure, everyone including myself loves the Subway series and we really get a charge out of beating the Yankees, but in the grand scheme of things, it’s not the Yankees who we need to beat, it’s the Braves. As a team the Mets have made a name for themselves right from the [...]
Billy Wagner has finally gotten used to the glaring heat that comes from being under the spotlight in New York. Last year he had a couple of rough stretches and even when things were going right, he just never looked comfortable as a New York Met. Despite that, he finished with solid numbers and racked up 40 saves. This year, Wagner is a different pitcher. He has been of the most dominant closers in the [...]
