Shortstop Alex Cora became the latest Met to go on the disabled list after deciding to have season-ending surgery on his right thumb. Cora also has a torn ligament in each of his thumbs and will have surgery on this left thumb this Thursday, and surgery on his right thumb five weeks later. Cora, who signed as a free agent in the offseason, hit .251 with one homer and 18 RBIs in 82 games in his first season with […]
Bobby Parnell made his first major league start at Petco Park on Saturday night, replacing fellow rookie Jonathon Niese in the rotation. Unfortunately, it was not a start to remember as the Mets could not reward him with a victory. New York dropped the third game of the four-game series in San Diego by the final score of 3-1 as their offense sputtered again. The defeat was their eighth consecutive loss at Petco Park, dating […]
Every time an updated injury report is released, August appears to be the month circled for the majority of the disabled players to make their return to the Mets. What will this mean for the players who have been thrust into everyday roles over the past few months? Let’s start analyzing what August has in store for the Mets, beginning with the hitters. The key Mets injuries in 2009 have been the ones to Carlos […]
The Mets finally snapped their four-game losing streak with a 5-4 win over the Dodgers on Wednesday night. Oliver Perez made his long anticipated return to the mound, but he was as erratic as ever as he toiled through five innings while throwing 108 pitches. He allowed just two runs and was very lucky it wasn’t a lot more. When Perez walked the first batter of the game on four pitches, I wondered how many Mets fans turned […]
It looks like Mets assistant GM, Tony Bernazard is back to his back-stabbing ways, and this time it is Jerry Manuel who is lining up to be his next victim. Bill Madden of the Daily News writes, Nevertheless, there’s still no getting around the fact the Mets are presently a depleted mess, plagued not only by this unfathomable rash of injuries to their most important players, but by the same inner turmoil that eventually led to Willie […]
It was a tough game to watch tonight at Citi Field, as the Mets were shutout by the Yankees 5-0. Alex Cora’s single in the sixth inning was the only hit the Mets had tonight, as the Yankees came so close to pitching the first no-hitter at Citi Field… For the second day in a row! What I found most puzzling is that after getting shutout by Burnett at Yankee Stadium on June 16th, I expected the Mets […]
So far the Subway Series has been a train wreck for the Mets offense. Imagine if Alex Cora had continued his anemic ways against A.J. Burnett (where did he get that shirt, from Greg Anthony?) and not snapped an 0-21 lifetime with a slap single? We would have been lamenting about getting no-hit by the former Met, a feat no Mets pitcher has ever accomplished. Nevertheless, the “hits cupboard” is barren right now, as the […]
In a little while the Mets will be hosting baseball tonight at Citi Field, going up against the American League Champions Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays will be starting Andy Sonnanstine. Sonnanstine is currently 5-6 with an ERA of 6.65 in 13 games started. Left handed batters are hitting .249 against him while right handed batters are hitting .290 against him. The Mets lineup for tonight is as follows: Alex Cora – SS Daniel Murphy […]
I know that many of you are disappointed we couldn’t pull out a win last night against the Phillies. We were so close. Despite the loss it was a heck of a game and we have been treated to some great baseball in the last two games. The Phillies and Mets rivalry has blossomed to the point where it has all the flair and high drama of the Red Sox – Yankees rivalry. Last night […]
