On Friday, Mets sixth round selection Joe Tuschak, ended his high school baseball career with a bang.  Tuschak’s grand slam highlighted a six-run outburst in the fourth inning for Northern York in a 6-3 win Friday over Tunkhannock to take the Pennsylvania State Baseball Championship. Immediately after the game, the highly regarded centerfielder spoke to reporters and then surprisingly […]

I really wanted to get this post up a few days ago, because my original post was going to be titled “Jose Reyes has more triples that Jason Bay has RBI”.  A few days ago that was the case, as Reyes had 11 triples to Jason’s 10 RBI.  It came up in a conversation with […]

Whether he’s attending one of his four daughters’ sporting events or speaking to local little leagues, the Smithtown, Long Island native has been adjusting to life after his playing career.

Why Nimmo And Not A Pitcher?

An article by posted on June 7, 2011 0 Comments

The New York Mets need pitching, pitching and more pitching. That’s why it’s quite strange that the team selected high school outfielder Brandon Nimmo with the No. 13 overall pick in this year’s MLB Draft. I can echo Robert Knapel’s sentiments on the subject that this pick is odd. First off, Nimmo, who is the […]

Today is June 1st, so that marks the one-third point of the season. The Mets are eight games behind the Phillies for first place in the NL East and 6.5 games behind the Florida Marlins for the Wild Card. While some claim it’s still too early to be scoreboard watching, I believe every game counts, […]

Can Reyes Keep His Hot Streak Going Upon His Return?

An article by posted on May 31, 2011 0 Comments

Jose Reyes, going into his contract year, has just been tearing up the majors, to say the least. Now with Reyes out for 2-6 more days due to the death of his grandmother, there is a legitimate risk that Reyes might cool off after being away from baseball for that amount of time. With few […]

Lamenting The Pitfalls of the OBP Craze

I just wanted to take the opportunity to note that it was REFRESHING to hear Keith Hernandez ( a man who knows a little bit about hitting) and Gary Cohen lament the effect that this OBP nonsense just may not be good for baseball in the long run, although not in those exact words. I’ve […]

Fan Post: Together We Can All Make A Difference And Save The Mets

Though to most baseball fans the season has just begun, to many Mets fans it was over before it started. The Mets were welcomed at the beginning of the season by five fans covering their faces in shame with brown paper bags and chanting “sell the Mets.” After being sued for $1 Billion by Bernie […]

Mets Should Take It Very Slow With Santana

An article by posted on May 6, 2011 0 Comments

Last night during my interview with Kerel Cooper of On The Black, we discussed Johan Santana and his timetable for return. I said that if this team continues to play under .500, I believe they need to hold him off as long as they can. In fact, if the Mets continue to play poorly in the coming months, they […]

Book Review: Moneyball – An Incredible, Revolutionary Masterpiece

Moneyball tells the fascinating tale of Billy Beane’s ingenious use of statistical analysis in order to assemble a winning ballclub without the luxury of a large payroll. Through statistics such as OBP, SLG, and a slew of other stats, Beane was able to snatch ballplayers with “hidden virtues” up for a song, creating a team on a $35 […]
