Buffalo 1, Scranton 6 Freddy Garcia allowed 3 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks in 6 inning in his first outing of the season, enough for the loss tonight, as the Bisons had another inept showing offensively, collecting 8 hits and a walk, but they were just 1 for 6 with RISP and left […]

If the 2007 and 2008 seasons did one thing to me as a Mets’ fan, it’s that they have made me believe that if the worst can happen, the worst will happen. I’m not a pessimist by nature, but these Mets have turned me into one.

I don’t post as many links to other interesting Mets blog posts and articles as much as I did in the off season. Mostly because there’s always a million things to write about everyday with the Mets now that the season is in full throttle.  MetsBlog usually does a good job pointing Mets fans to some good reads, […]

Dan Murphy is a good kid and a hard worker, as Jerry Manuel said yesterday, “He has done everything we have asked of him”. His performance at the plate has been solid and he currently wields a .320 average to go with his team leading 12 runs scored. As a table setter and number two […]

Losing 6-4 to the Cards isn’t the story. It’s how the Mets lost that’s darkening every fans mood. How can so much badly played baseball be packed into 9 innings! Perez returned to his bad self. Four decent innings, and that’s all she wrote. Loss of control, and then batting practice. Yadier owns us. We […]

Why Are The Mets Making Life Miserable For Church?

An article by posted on April 21, 2009 0 Comments

I think everyone understands what signing Gary Sheffield was going to mean for Ryan Church. Obviously based on how much Sheffield has accomplished in his career, we all knew it would lead to some complications in terms of finding playing time for everyone. That said, it was still tough to see one of our hottest […]

Forget LOB, Where’s The Stolen Bases?

An article by posted on April 21, 2009 0 Comments

For the last three seasons we’ve been spoiled by the speed of Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and David Wright. The Mets were among the league leaders each season in stolen bases, and speed was a big part of our game. But so far this season, the team’s stolen bases are down and not where we […]
