Hey, some things never change. Just as he did last season, David Wright once again has a hitting streak that is worth noting as he embarks on the new season. After yesterday’s big series finish against the Florida Marlins, David Wright now has a 20 game hitting streak that he began on September 19, 2007. Not too shabby! Did you know we have over two dozen custom David Wright graphics that we designed just for you!
Pedro Martinez is on the shelf….again. For at least the next six weeks he will sit along side left fielder Moises Alou, backup catcher Ramon Castro, and setup man Duaner Sanchez. The trip to the disabled list is certainly no foreign place for the 36 year-old righty. It had to be expected at some juncture this season, just not as immediate as 57 pitches into the campaign. The unfortunate hamstring “tweak” has much of Queens on […]
First off, I don’t care if A-Rod makes more by himself than the entire Marlins team combined. I think all baseball players are overpaid to begin with. I love my Mets, but they are entertaining fans, not saving the world. And even though I applaud those who give their time and are involved in charity work, common sense says that they don’t need to be making millions to raise money for others. They could do that […]
All these so-called Mets fans ripping Willie for not using Wagner are nuts. Wise screwed up but he was the right choice to pitch. I’m sure nobody complained when he struck out the first two batters. Why would you bring in Wagner to pitch to a guy who had never homered in his short career? Everyone just chill out! Wise is going to be just fine. Before getting that change-up high enough for Andino to […]
I just got my Mets email subscription and it was a letter from Mets manager, Willie Randolph. Check it out… Our team is ready to go. That’s the message I want to send to you Mets fans as we prepare for today’s opener in South Florida. The goal this year is to make our final season at Shea something special and I think we can. We’ve had a great spring. Our batting order certainly can […]
Right handed pitcher Brian Stokes was designated for assignment. I think the Mets may have called this one wrong. Even if you really believed that Joe Smith would out-produce Stokes, something that was not even debatable, why not keep Smith in the minors for the first month and see if Brian Stokes was as good as he looked? He had all the things you would look for in a solid reliever and had a great […]
Surprise, surprise… For those of you including myself, who thought Joe Smith and Mike Pelfrey would begin the season in New Orleans… think again! Both Smith and Pelfrey were all smiles today when they were told by Willie Randolph they had made the team. Pelfrey and his 8.15 Spring ERA will take the mound against the Braves on Saturday! Smith and his 6.76 Spring ERA will be on hand to bail Pelfrey out if needed. […]

The Mets have not decided on a fifth starter this far into Spring Training. They’re saying Jorge Sosa may get the job, with both Brian Stokes and Joe Smith able to prove themselves worthy of the bullpen. Both Mike Pelfrey and El Duque aren’t ready to start, but I think Pelfrey will be ready before El Duque. I hope they at least give Nelson Figueroa a spot in the bullpen. He has performed consistently throughout […]
