SaberMETrics

An article by posted on April 29, 2010 0 Comments

Before you jump to post a comment about how you hate Sabermetrics, or how you find them useless. Please at least read this? For starters, I’m terrible at Math. It was my worst subject in school, and I literally had zero interest in it unless it revolved around baseball stats. I don’t read about Sabermetrics, […]

  “We’re playing pretty good baseball. I knew once those middle of the order guys hit, it could be a lot of fun. The good thing is we have won games when they haven’t hit; now that they’re hitting it’s more of an all inclusive thing.”  ~  Jerry Manuel   “It’s great to see that everybody […]

There’s Only One NY Team In First Place, And It’s Not The Yankees!

Not only are the Mets all alone in the NL East, but they have more home wins than any other team in baseball! Last night, the Mets set a season high for runs scored with ten, while improving to 8-1 on their 10-game homestand which concludes this afternoon. So many things to be smiling about […]

Over the past few heartbreaking seasons we have spent much time on this site debating the importance of ‘swagger.’ I have personally been a huge advocate of this. Some have agreed. Some have disagreed. There is something to be said about walking onto a field and displaying a sense of confidence. As our Mets now […]

How sweep it is! Anytime the Mets utilize their brooms against the Braves its a good feeling. Regardless of the standings or time of the year. The fact the Mets buoyed their 3 of 4, first series victory of the year from the Cubs, by one-upping it with a sweep, signals better days ahead in Flushing. Nine days […]

Forgotten Man: What To Do With Murphy…

We’ve all enjoyed the remarkable return of a contending Mets team. Make no mistake either, this team is a contender and will contend. It’s amazing what a 23 year old AAA callup will do for a floundering and monumentally boring team…(and some good starting pitching)   Thank you Ike Davis, because, coincidentally, since you were recalled […]

Meet Ben Baumer, who serves as the Mets’ official Statistical Analyst, Baumer has been serving the Mets in this role for the last seven seasons […]

This Was One For The Ages

Last night’s epic 20 inning marathon between the Cardinals and the Mets had more ups and downs than a ride on the Cyclone in Coney Island. When the game finally came to an end and I saw Luis Castillo field the grounder off the bat of Ryan Ludwick and fire it to Mike Jacobs at first […]
