What About Pedro and Perez?

An article by posted on August 29, 2008

Putting away all the recent discourse regarding Carlos Delgado for just a moment, I was wondering how the Mets were going to deal with a more pressing issue at the end of this season. What about Pedro Martinez and Oliver Perez? Obviously their situations differ greatly from that of Delgado because the Mets have an […]

Reeling In Reyes

An article by posted on August 28, 2008

Two times last night, Jose Reyes was doubled-up off of first base after a flyball was caught in the outfield. Fortunately for Jose and the Mets, Ryan Howard was unable to handle the first ball (or his glove for that matter), and Jose returned safely to first base. This first inning blunder could have cost […]

Oh My Gado, What A Night!

I guess today is Carlos Delgado Day on Mets Merized Online. Well, why not? While some can say that this Mets resurgence lies squarely with Interim Manager Jerry Manuel, can anybody deny that he couldn’t have done it without Delgado? Not only is Delgado doing the right things at the plate, but he even has picked […]

Our Bullpen Isn’t THAT Bad… Actually, It Is.

An article by posted on August 27, 2008

After last night’s debacle, I can’t help but look at the weakest spot on the Mets right now: the bullpen. With the loss of Billy Wagner, little has gone right. Here’s a few nuggets for you to chew on; The Mets bullpen is: 12th in ERA: 4.27T-1st in blown saves: 226th in HR allowed: 472nd […]

Easley Done

An article by posted on August 27, 2008

While there were a few bright spots in last night’s Mets loss to the Phillies, one particular thing stands out in my mind.  Forgive me for not being able to recall the inning, but Damion Easley was at the plate, with a chance to hit for the cycle (only needing a double), and with Jose […]

It’s August 27. We are in the middle of the pennant race. We are in second place. We are only a half game back. Then why do we feel like we’ve already lost? Why do we feel like we are helpless as we watch the year slip through our fingers? Why are we, in the […]

Big Pelf – The Magic Continues

An article by posted on August 26, 2008

What can you say about Mike Pelfrey that hasn’t been said already? I am running out of superlatives I can use to describe how special and how amazing his season continues to be. Last night’s performance may have been his best one yet… Nine solid innings of one run ball with eight strikeouts and no […]

Four Mets Relievers Lead League In Appearances

An article by posted on August 25, 2008

As Joel Sherman of the NY Post stated in his article this morning… There are many categories you want your players to be among the league leaders. This is not one of them. The New York Mets have four relievers in the top nine in the NL in appearances. Pedro Feliciano and Aaron Heilman (68 games) […]

New York-Now And Forever A National League City

An article by posted on August 25, 2008

Have you ever tried to have a logical discussion about baseball with a Yankees fan? It’s virtually impossible. After perhaps five minutes, ten if you’re lucky, they resort to the old stand-by: Twenty Six Championships! Twenty Six Championships!! Twenty Six Championships!!! They sound like a parrot. And I think I know the reason why Yankees […]
