It has been only 11 months since undergoing Tommy John surgery, but Billy Wagner has been progressing quite well in his minor league rehab assignment. He has made four appearances facing live hitters and is yet to give up a run. His fastball has been clocked at 94 MPH and most importantly, he has not felt any pain in his surgically repaired elbow. Although he has not pitched in back-to-back games, the team expects him […]
We all have them—friends who are overly optimistic, even when things with our Mets look as grim as they possibly can. To put this in perspective, during Game 6 of the ’86 World Series, I was hanging out with a bunch of friends in a bar on Long Island. Among those friends was my buddy Tom from Bayside, and I distinctly remember Tom’s insane optimism through my beer-soaked haze as the season was slipping away. […]
Every time an updated injury report is released, August appears to be the month circled for the majority of the disabled players to make their return to the Mets. What will this mean for the players who have been thrust into everyday roles over the past few months? Let’s start analyzing what August has in store for the Mets, beginning with the hitters. The key Mets injuries in 2009 have been the ones to Carlos […]
Here’s a quick question for you to consider. Who is the longest tenured Mets player currently on the 25-man roster who has not played in the majors for any other franchise during his time with the team? Although you might think the answer is Jose Reyes, he’s only been with the team since June 2003. The last person you would think of is Pedro Feliciano, but he is the correct answer. Why would anyone think […]
During an interview with the New York Post two weeks ago injured Mets reliever, Billy Wagner was asked about what he role with the club would be. Wagner was very honest and blunt in his response about whether or not he thought he would have a significant spot in the bullpen. “No. Not at all. I can’t see it. I think that would be foolhardy to even insinuate something like that,” he said. “I think […]
In the early innings of tonight’s Mets telecast, Gary Cohen asked the viewers who they thought was the injured player closest to making his way back from the disabled list. Although Jose Reyes has been doing some light running and is very close to playing in rehab games, he was not the answer. Imagine my surprise when the answer was revealed to be the Sandman, Billy Wagner! So I did a little research to see […]
For as bad as the Mets have looked at times this season (and I have advocated blowing up the team or just not paying attention to them anymore), it’s almost miraculous that they are not worse than three games under .500 and 6 ½ games out of first place. When you think about the lousy starting pitching we’ve endured at times, the mental mistakes that seem to multiply, the injuries to most of the key […]
The Morning Grind is the place for Mets fans to sound off on anything and everything! An open thread for ranting and raving about the Mets, completely raw and uncensored! That eighth inning was hard to watch last night. I think we have our new Heilman… or Mota… or you get the idea… After a bad outing on Sunday, J.J. Putz is trotted back out there on Monday and really outdoes himself with one of the most […]
Two days after shelving J.J. Putz for a few days with a bone spur in his right elbow, the Mets got some good news regarding their former closer Billy Wagner who is rehabbing in Florida. Adam Rubin of the Daily News reports, Billy Wagner has returned to Port St. Lucie after a month-long moratorium on throwing off a mound. It looks like his projection to return from Tommy John elbow surgery by August may be on […]
