LIVE BLOGGING FROM CITI FIELD This game’s over and the Mets pounded the Padres 11-2 today at Citi Field. It was an “All Hands On Deck Effort” by this revamped Mets team which was great to see. Collin Cowgill with a huge Mets debut and big contributions also from Byrd, Buck, Wright, Tejada, Murphy and of course Jon Niese who looked sharp in his first start of the season. Fun game and it was fun […]
Interesting April? That is for sure. Expectations are clearly low for the Mets this year. However, they were also low last year, and the team gave fans at least three months of a season before falling off a cliff. Yes, on paper this team doesn’t look good, and they have been hampered by an astonishing number of injuries this Spring. However, this is baseball, and anything can happen. Certainly, a LOT of things will have […]
I get it. I really do. At this point, no Mets’ fan in their right mind thinks Johan Santana is going to be ready for Opening Day. And it appears the start will go to Jonathon Niese. And out of any other options in the rotation, Niese is probably the one that most deserves it. Shaun Marcum? No. Dillon Gee? No. Matt Harvey? No. Hmmm, on second thought… Look, I’m not even saying that I’m […]
With Opening Day less than two weeks away, the names of those who could open the season on the disabled list has more star power than the team we’ll see on the field come April 1 against the Padres. Closer Frank Francisco told the team he is still not feeling right after a 31-pitch side session on Saturday. He is still trying to recover from inflammation following off-season surgery to remove above spur form his right elbow. […]
The latest on Johan Santana cane from manager Terry Collins who said that Johan Santana’s decision to throw a bullpen for the first time in 10 days, was “unnecessary” and said he “wished his ace handled himself differently.” Mike Kerwick of The Record quotes Collins who suggests that Santana needs to calm down and get his emotions in check, and that he should have gone about this the proper way. “He’s fine,” Collins said, “and […]
I probably wasn’t the only person frustrated last year watching Kirk Nieuwenhuis, or Lucas Duda, or Ike Davis appearing to take fat pitches down the middle of the plate only to see them swing at a breaking pitch in the dirt or a fastball at eye level. On several notable occasions Keith Hernandez himself went off on hitters taking 2-1 fastballs “right down the pike” as he’d say. There was a perception among many fans […]
Kirk Nieuwenhuis came up last season after CF Andres Torres went down. Billed as an athletic and toolsy outfielder with some promise, Nieuwenhuis hit the ground running raking to the tune of a .325 batting average in March and April. Then came some strike outs, and more strike outs, and then came a whole lot of weak grounders and even more strikeouts, which led to his demotion in July when he batted .105 — deer […]
There is a big battle going on in the Mets blogosphere. Not only on blogs or Facebook or Twitter, but even bars and anywhere you’ll find Mets fans. Some fans just want their points heard and don’t care what anyone else has to say. Some like and appreciate the dialogue and are open to hearing other views. Some Met fans just like to complain, and even if the team had a 56-1 record, they would moan about that one loss. It’s […]
We’re just five days from the start of Opening Day. We Mets fans have had to endure a lot of anguish these past few seasons, and so far nothing has given us significant indication that 2010 will be a successful season. In fact, the injuries are continuing to mount, and the rotation still has a giant question mark or five. But that all doesn’t hide the fact that the calendar turns tomorrow, and it’s no […]
