The 2010 Postseason has seen an impressive resurgence in the art of pitching. So far six shutouts have been recorded. Only twice in major league history has there been more in a postseason, the latest being in 2001 when seven were tossed. MLB has a cumulative ERA of 3.35, the only team that seems to have escaped this pitching swoon are the New York Yankees, who’s team ERA pushed 5.00. The same New York Yankees who [...]
The Mets so far have had one of the best seasons of any team in Major League Baseball…seriously. I know you must think Spector’s finally lost it. Follow me on this one. The Mets this season have fielded about 15 players who have actually contributed – a far cry from the normal 25 man roster. Let’s reminisce and go back to early Spring – Port St. Lucie – when hope was abundant – when we [...]
All season long so many of us have dissected in every which way possible, every move the New York Mets have made. Granted some of us have used hacksaws and some of us have used the precision of a neurosurgeon, to make our points. I’ve occasionally waded in both pools, admittedly. The way the Mets have played this year have at times been quite frustrating, however, as fellow MMO writer Ed Leyro pointed out the [...]
The Mets have ended this past week taking 2 out of 3 from the World Champion New York Yankees to sweeping the National League Champions, the Philadelphia Phillies, impressively shutting them out in all 3 games. To call 2010 a rollercoaster year for the Mets is more than an understatement. To go from worst to first, back to worst and once again to being in contention in a few weeks is borderline manic, and we [...]
First, allow myself to introduce…myself. The handle is Taryn, but you can call me Coop, some circles know me as “The Coop,” and others know me as “The Coopinatrix.” Erm, plead the fifth on that one. Anyway, I am the primary contributor of a three years running Mets blog called “My Summer Family,” a passionate narrative from a cool chick and the love for her baseball team. I contribute to other sites as well, and [...]
After yesterday’s big round of cuts and today’s expected cuts of Omir Santos and Raul Valdez, the Mets 25 Man Roster looks hardly like anything we expected after the offseason began. That’s not to say it’s good or bad, but somewhat surprising to say the least. The 2010 reconstruction plan was going to be predicated on three things according to Omar Minaya and Jeff Wilpon; Pitching, Speed and Defense. The biggest changes to the offense were [...]
I’ve always been a Mets fan. Well, since around 1970 or so…that’s as far back as I can remember. So even though many of you have read my work on there the last six-eight months about how frustrated and annoyed I am with the way the team has played and the direction they have gone in with personnel, a new season is upon us and optimism reigns supreme. Let’s face it, every baseball fan loves [...]
