I’m feeling very ill tonight so I hope you don’t mind this very condensed version of tonight’s game.

Jeremy Hefner threw an absolute gem, holding the Nats to one run […]

Fried Rice: Has Collins Burned Out His Lefty Reliever?

If you didn’t know any better, you would think the Mets only had two relievers in their bullpen; closer Bobby Parnell and lefthander Scott Rice. On those rare occasions when the Mets need to protect a late lead, Parnell and Rice have been Terry Collins‘ first line of defense and his go-to guys. For Rice, […]

Collins Pulling Gee Was A Mistake That Didn’t End Up Hurting The Team

Updated with thoughts by Joe D. on 5/31 When Terry Collins removed Dillon Gee in the eighth inning last night after registering one out, I like everyone else who were interacting on Twitter busted a gasket.

Is Bobby Parnell Finally Growing Up?

I have always been dubious about Bobby Parnell. Despite the electric fastball, he’s struggled with his command, control and composure on the mound. I always felt that Parnell had the most hittable 98-mph fastball in the history of the game. I personally was ready to give up on him last year, and suggested it was […]
