After 28 Games Mets Fans Remain Hopeful

An article by posted on May 7, 2010 0 Comments

On the one hand, I’m by no means convinced that the Mets are a legitimate playoff contender.  On the other hand they are much improved in virtually every facet of their game.  And that combined with relative parity in the National League certainly should keep the Mets in the Wild Card race as summer approaches.  […]

Giants at Mets Series Preview

An article by posted on May 7, 2010 0 Comments

For starters let’s all take a moment to thank the baseball God’s that Matt Cain is not pitching in this series, and because of that David Wright shouldn’t have to answer more than 1 question about the head hunting incident.  *pause* End scene. So moving on, the NY Mets stumble home and do their best […]

Home Is Where Their Heart Is

The Mets return home to take on the San Francisco Giants this weekend at Citi Field.  We know where the Mets’ hearts are (I’ll explain that in a moment); let’s just hope the Giants left their bats in San Francisco. The Mets went 9-1 on their last home stand, but followed that up with a […]

Time To Get Our Batting Order In Order Again

An article by posted on May 7, 2010 0 Comments

Talk about a bummer of a road trip… The only good part of it was yesterday’s get-away day. I’m totally excited about the Mets coming home to begin weekend series against the San Francisco Giants, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have some inhibitions about Mike Pelfrey and Johan Santana based on […]

The Mets created a lot of goodwill with their loyal fans after a 9-1 homestand late in April.  It certainly seemed as though some things were working: Ike Davis was called up and created an impression on the team and the fanbase, Jose Reyes moved his spot in the lineup and it seemed to work […]

Jason Bay: Rich Man, Poor Numbers

When Jason Bay signed his four-year, $66 million contract to play left field for the Mets, it was believed that he would provide the booming bat needed by the Mets that was sorely missed last season.  After all, Daniel Murphy led the team with a measly 12 home runs, while Bay hit three times that […]

The Wright Stuff

When I filled out some paperwork for Joe D. I named David Wright as my favorite Met player.   I always say that, but I rarely discuss why  – it’s just so simple – he’s an all around good guy and good ballplayer.  David Allen Wright who plays third base for the New York Mets was born in […]

SaberMETrics: ESPN Poll, Batting Average v. OBP

An article by posted on May 6, 2010 0 Comments

There’s no possible way I could’ve let this go without a quick blog. This is for all of those fans out there that have called sabermetrics crap when referencing OBP. I still don’t get that really since OBP wasn’t invented with sabermetrics. ESPN did a poll of 100 MLB Players. They asked the players 20 […]
