An article by posted on September 26, 2011 0 Comments

Walking into the movie theater to see Moneyball, I had my doubts. Will this capture what the book is about? How can Brad Pitt play a hot-head GM like Billy Beane? Is this going to be another Hollywood interpretation of the true essence of sports? To say the least, I had my doubts. I had very low […]

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I got an email from one of our readers yesterday that basically asked me  a few questions about Bay, Tejada and a couple of other players, but what really struck me was this: Why do so many fans hate David Wright? Everybody seems to pin […]

Are Clutch Performances And Players A Myth?

A recent exchange on Twitter between me and a couple of other Mets bloggers, reminds me of why there is such a great divide between the sabermetric crowd and for lack of a better term, the traditionalists, or the old-school crowd if you will. In my opinion, the cause for the divide isn’t really the […]

With hurricane Irene bearing down on the New York area, the Mets have postponed the next two games of the Braves series, leaving us without baseball for a few days.

Is Pelfrey Worth $7 Million To Be A Fourth Starter?

Last night at rain-soaked Citi Field, Mike Pelfrey let up four runs on eight hits and four walks in a 6-1 loss to the Brewers. It was just another forgettable start for Pelfrey whose record dropped to 6-10 with a 4.61 ERA – worst among all starters. Only Ryota Igarashi and D.J. Carrasco have worse ERAs […]

By now this comes as no surprise to Mets fans, but according to Steve Popper of The Record, there’s been some talk of Murphy picking up an outfielders glove in the future […]
