Does The Expanded Roster Help In A Pennant Race?

An article by posted on August 27, 2007

For the first time in who knows how long, the Mets finally have all their regulars in the lineup at the same time.  With the return of Paul LoDuca and Luis Castillo to the lineup tonight, we get to enjoy the team that Omar Minaya so intelligently put together to win us a World Championship. […]

Braves and Phillies: Down For The Count

An article by posted on August 27, 2007

My, how quickly the tide can turn. Two short weeks ago, I myself stated in my weekly piece here at Metsmerized that I was a fan filled with worry and concern. Nothing specifically brought me to feel in the manner I did. The Mets were dreadful; they were winning marginally if at all, and failed […]

Despite All The Injuries, Mets On Verge Of Another NL East Title

An article by posted on August 27, 2007

The race for the NL East is slowly drawing to an end. The Phillies and Braves are losing steam, and well, we just keep winning. Before Saturday, the Mets scored 5 runs or more in 12 consecutive games. That’s insane for a team who has had several key players out with injuries. The success from […]

Duque Gives His Opponents Bloody El

An article by posted on August 26, 2007

I apologize for the awful play on words, but can anyone dispute the fact that El Duque DOES give his opponents bloody hell? Of course you can’t! El Duque has been "all that and a bag of chips" for the Mets this season, and he has become the unofficial ace of the pitching staff. Would […]

It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over

An article by posted on August 26, 2007

Those words may have become a standard in baseball, but not to Kevin Kernan of the New York Post. According to him… It is over! So at 6:47 last night when Aaron Heilman got Luis Gonzalez to bounce into a 1-6-3 double play to give the Mets a 4-3 win over the Dodgers at sweaty […]

Is It The Endy Of The Line For Milledge?

An article by posted on August 26, 2007

It looks like Endy Chavez will not get activated today after all. It seems that he will instead be playing in another rehab game for Binghamton this afternoon. I have no idea why the Mets are biding their time. My guess is that they are torn between sending Lastings Milledge back to the minors, or […]

An article by posted on August 26, 2007

As the Mets get ready to sink the Dodger’s post season ambitions, check out what frustrated manager, Grady Little, had to say after the game. His reply was to a question that asked what went wrong in the first two games in the series against the Mets. His reply ends up being a back-handed compliment […]

All They Are Is Dust In The Wind

An article by posted on August 25, 2007

Paul Lo Duca is getting back into the swing of things while rehabbing in St. Lucie. He appeared in both games of a double header last night while making his first rehab appearances. He caught five innings for Brooklyn and went 0-for-2 with a walk in the first game, and in the second game, he served as […]

Conine the Barbarian: What The Mets Need?

An article by posted on August 24, 2007

As pessimistic as a Mets fan can be at times (especially at the end of a close game), I am beginning to feel a small sense of hope. The tune of many bogs including one of mine has been whether or not Omar Minaya was going to do something to provide a spark in the […]
