Sorry Met Fans, But Bobby Parnell Is Not An All-Star

Couldn’t help reading today that Bobby Parnell deserves to be an All Star on MetsBlog.  Sorry, but I beg to differ. Parnell ranks 13th out of 15 National League closers with 9 saves. The leader, Pittsburgh’s Jason Grilli, has 22 saves, while Edward Mujica of the Cardinals and Craig Kimbrel have 17 saves each. All three […]

Mets Waste Another Gem By Hefner In Nationals 3-2 Walk-Off Win

I’m feeling very ill tonight so I hope you don’t mind this very condensed version of tonight’s game. The Mets blew a 2-1 ninth inning lead as the Washington Nationals tagged closer Bobby Parnell for two runs in their dramatic 3-2 walk-off win. 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, […]

Who Carried The Mets Lunchpail In May?

Daniel Murphy’s college coach called him Joe Lunchpail; a blue collar guy who, for his age, “… knows as much about hitting as anybody out there,” said Terry Alexander, Jacksonville University Dolphins. “He wants to take it to a science.” Murphy hit .317 during the month of May, including 10 doubles. He is second in […]

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. Here was Gee, pitching the game of his life and in the midst of retiring 15 consecutive batters – including […]

Is Bobby Parnell Finally Growing Up?

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 […]
