I got an email the other day asking me why I always downplay the Mets going after players like Shin-Soo Choo, Jacoby Ellsbury or Carlos Beltran. The reader wanted to know why I’ve become such a pessimist. My response to her was simple. “I don’t trust the people in charge, hence I’m skeptical of anything they say.” In the Fall of 2010, nobody was happier to see Sandy Alderson and company take control of this […]
Barbara Barker of Newsday caught up with Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson who had some nice things to say about Zack Wheeler, but also pointed out what the young right-hander’s main problem is. “You’ve got to like his arm,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. “He has a good fastball and breaking stuff. But it’s command. It’s always going to be command up here. No matter how hard you throw, you have to locate. That’s been […]
Yeah…This was such a joke of a game that I insinuated in the shout box that I didn’t even think it deserved a recap. But it happened — and what’s done is done. Zack Wheeler, our touted prospect, took the mound against the Nationals for his Citi Field debut and it was rocky, to say the least. Wheeler looked to be making an effort to throw more pitches over the plate, although his strike:ball ratio […]
One of the most revealing things about the Mets’ 7-6 loss to the Nationals today, is that they are 7-1 this season when Jon Niese and Matt Harvey start, and 1-7 when they turn to Dillon Gee, Jeremy Hefner and Aaron Laffey. That says a lot, doesn’t it? Today’s sacrificial lamb was 26-year old Jeremy Hefner who made a quick exit lasting only four innings and allowing four earned runs on four hits, three walks and a […]
Ben Sheets, who after refusing to throw for teams early in the offseason, will apparently put his repaired right arm on display for suitors. Sheets, 31, has drawn interest from many teams, though it has generally been tempered because of his exorbitant contract demands for a pitcher with injury problems. Sheets has asked for a $10-12 million deal for at least two years. While interest in him is there, those numbers have scared off most […]
In Newsday, David Lennon posted an interesting article about the possibility of Godzilla coming ashore in Flushing next season. I hope Omar Minaya doesn’t read that article. We don’t need him to get inspired by it. The Mets need a power hitter who can play left field or first base. Hideki Matsui hit 28 HR for the Yankees in only 456 at-bats, but almost every one of his at-bats came as a designated hitter, as […]
After the 2007 season, the Mets faithful were thrilled by the acquisition of ace Johan Santana. Despite only poor team performances since his acquisition, Johan’s contributions to the team have been unending and undeniably huge, highlighted by his memorable effort on the 2nd-to-last-day of the 2008 season and the last game at Shea Stadium that I choose to remember. Last season, the Mets reeled in K-Rod who, while he’s had his moments of faltering, has […]
