An article by posted on September 24, 2009 0 Comments

Way too much is being made of comments from Jerry Manuel that sounded like Omir Santos will be the starting catcher next season. I must have come across a dozen stories that ran with that notion today, but let’s not read too much into what Manuel is saying regarding the catching situation. First, Manuel is […]

Jon Heyman of SI.com mentioned something over the weekend regarding Mets first baseman Daniel Murphy that caught my attention. While reporting that Carlos Delgado may still attempt to comeback this season, if only for just one or two weeks, he also throws this in, The Mets have thought about possibly bringing back Delgado on an incentive-laden […]

This weekend we reported on how well John Maine performed in his rehab start for Port St. Lucie. He pitched four shutout innings while allowing just two hits, one walk, and striking out six. The news was even better when Maine said that he experienced no pain the next day. “It’s a little tight but it’s […]

Thole and Misch Fuel Mets 8-3 Win Over Rockies

An article by posted on September 4, 2009 0 Comments

Even after an impressive 8-3 win over the Rockies, don’t expect me to gloat as much over a win or agonize as much over a loss as I once did throughout the season. Wins and losses don’t mean as much anymore given the Mets current circumstances. Instead, I look for outward signs of hope for next […]

As the Mets fell to the Rockies 8-3 last night, you couldn’t help but wonder about the makeup of Mike Pelfrey who continues to make the case that he may never be a number two or three pitcher. As Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez pointed out last night, Pelfrey is woefully short on guts and […]

Ask just about any Mets fan nowadays about who will be behind the plate in 2010, most will have no idea. And, I can’t really blame them, the Mets have not made getting a quality catcher a priority in the past few seasons, unless you call Brian Schneider and his .189/.272/.318 line quality. If you […]

An article by posted on August 19, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets Minor League system has been the subject of debate all season long in 2009. The criticism is mostly justified in my opinion based on two things. 1. The Mets claim that they have a superior farm system loaded with talent that they consider untouchable. The overall standings of the Mets minor league affiliates tells a […]

At Least We’re Set In Right Field For 2010

An article by posted on August 14, 2009 0 Comments

As I wrote back when the Mets first acquired him, the Mets were the big winners when they dumped the lackluster Church in exchange for the young righthanded former first rounder, Jeff Francoeur. About a week and a half later, I indicated that his recent hitting woes were simply a matter of making adjustments. Here […]
