An article by posted on June 13, 2011 0 Comments

This week was a harder decision than I’ve had to make in a while – go with the pitcher or go with our electric lead off man. It’s sometimes hard to choose what matters more (and usually, I’m such a pitching maniac). I was really impressed with the starting pitching of the Mets this week […]

Is It Time To Move Pagan Back To Top Of The Order?

An article by posted on May 30, 2011 0 Comments

Since coming off the disabled list, Angel Pagan has been a hitting machine. With his hot return, it begs the question of whether Terry Collins should re-insert Pagan into the No. 2 spot in the lineup. As Pagan regains his stroke, Justin Turner continues handling the bat well, which is ideal for a No. 2 […]

The Mets Have Roster Depth

I really enjoyed reading Ken Davidoff’s column on Newsday this morning. Unlike the last few seasons, Davidoff points out that this year the Mets have gotten some solid contributions from their roster depth when players have gotten hurt or landed on the DL. Jason Pridie is one such player that has been a pleasant surprise […]

Well, it seems that injuries already have played a role this season. Last year’s breakout player, […]

Angel Pagan has been off to a dreadful start, and there is no debating that. Pagan has not only batted under .170 so far, but he has also lacked the clutch hitting that the Mets relied on so heavily last season. With such a slow start in 2011, it begs the question we are reluctant to ask: Was 2010 just a fluke […]

Mets On Track To Beat Their Own MLB Record Of 120 Losses

An article by posted on April 21, 2011 0 Comments

Due to the changing nature of Baseball there are certain records which will stand forever. Cy Young’s 511 wins and Walter Johnson’s 113 shutouts come to mind. Nowadays pitchers don’t even toss 113 complete games much less 113 shutouts. Then there are records which were supposed to stand forever but did not, such as Ty Cobb’s […]
