Steroids, and all PED’s have become such a staple in sports that now headlines are made less on accomplishments but more on accusations. Jeff Pearlman, who I will preface by saying is very open in terms of his communication and is never one to shy away from his opinion, wrote a piece recently about his trip to Citi Field. In his blog, Pearlman writes the following: “Here’s the thing: Why isn’t anyone questioning Byrd’s season? […]
So, this morning Eric Young Jr. tweeted this about the unfortunate play that resulted in a broken ankle for Tim Hudson who is now out for the season: For ppl who think I would purposely try 2 hurt someone,& felt they needed to say that 2 me…I will continue 2 pray for u as well.#godbless — Eric Young Jr (@EYJr) July 25, 2013 Young isn’t really taking flak for this, is he? If you look at how the […]
Congratulations to both Chris Flexen and Miller Diaz; they’ve been selected as the pitcher of the week in their respective leagues! Not to be outdone, Dustin Lawley was named the FSL offensive player of the week, as well. First, let’s start with the stellar week that Flexen had for the K-Mets. After struggling to a 5.63 ERA in 32 innings pitched last season for Kingsport, the 19-year-old has shown a marked improvement in 2013. That improvement was on display this […]
Last night’s loss to the Braves sucked big time… This much is true… But what bugged me the most was how it wiped out a brilliant performance by Dillon Gee who continues to dominate after injuries saw him start the season off in some pretty dire straits. The Mets wasted Gee’s seven shutout innings and the fact he had a no-hitter through six became an afterthought. The right-hander didn’t seem to mind it, but I […]
CHEATER, LIAR, SUSPENDED, JUSTICE! Updated By Clayton Collier: The 65-game ban of Ryan Braun was negotiated by him, MLBPA and MLB. Major League Baseball was looking for a suspension beyond 2013, says ESPN’s T.J. Quinn, however Braun was able to get it reduced to the remainder of the current season. Sources tell OTL MLB confronted Braun with volumes of evidence provided by Tony Bosch, including texts. — T.J. Quinn (@TJQuinnESPN) July 22, 2013 If plan […]
I asked my writers who they thought was the biggest surprise for the Mets in the first half, and one of the benefits of having 25-35 active writers is that it gives me a good well-rounded sense of where the Mets fan base is on these roundtable questions I like to do. As expected there were some varied answers, and few added comments as well. Here is what we came up with. Daniel – The […]
Sandy Alderson told reporters before Saturday’s game that the decision to skip his start yesterday was based largely on reducing his workload. “He would pitch in the All-Star Game whether he pitched today or not,” the Mets’ GM said. “That wasn’t the reason we made the decision. We made the decision on his projected workload over the course of the season. His blister was a factor and the ability for him to pitch a side […]
Andy Martino of the Daily News, spoke to a person with direct knowledge of the team’s thinking who said that the Mets are more likely to keep Marlon Byrd this summer, rather than trade him before the Trade Deadline on July 31. We can debate the pros and cons of that, but I want to discuss Byrd in a different context for now. When you think about a player that deserves to be MLB Comeback […]
Former-Met Scott Hairston was dealt on Monday to the Washington Nationals after struggling mightily with the Cubs in 2013. While in hot pursuit of free agent outfielder Michael Bourn, Chicago swept Hairston out from under the feet of the Amazin’s front office, forcing Sandy’s “What Outfield?” Mets into the spotlight. Many, myself included, criticized Alderson for allowing the veteran to walk, especially on such an inexpensive deal. However once spring arrived and a new season was […]
