This Was One For The Ages

An article by posted on April 18, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]

An article by posted on April 14, 2010 0 Comments

While Jerry Manuel ponders things like the Mets 2-5 start, John Maine’s spot in the rotation, and how they can eke out a win against the Rockies and Cardinals, the time has come for us to ponder life without Jerry Manuel. The fast start that he himself admitted he needed all through the Spring, has […]

An article by posted on April 4, 2010 0 Comments

When the Mets made their final cuts today, it opened the door for plenty of second guessing from diehard Mets fans and media alike. The Mets never make it easy on themselves… One of the more peculiar decisions the Mets made in finalizing their 25 man roster today, was deciding to keep reliever Sean Green over […]

A Preview Of The 2010 Mets: Believe In Miracles

An article by posted on April 3, 2010 0 Comments

After yesterday’s big round of cuts and today’s expected cuts of Omir Santos and Raul Valdez, the Mets 25 Man Roster looks hardly like anything we expected after the offseason began. That’s not to say it’s good or bad, but somewhat surprising to say the least. The 2010 reconstruction plan was going to be predicated on […]

Yesterday, the New York Yankees released RHP Chad Gaudin, making him a free agent. Last season Gaudin appeared in 31 games, starting 25 of them and allowing 146 hits and 76 walks in 147 innings.

Can Pedro Feliciano Be The Mets Setup Man?

An article by posted on March 25, 2010 0 Comments

Considering he’s relied upon so heavily in the Mets’ bullpen, Pedro Feliciano was given a nice little break recently. Now, with about a week and a half remaining in Spring Training, he’ll be used rather steadily as he aims to prepare himself for what will probably be another 80-appearance season in relief for the Amazin’s.

Yesterday was a big day for 20-year old RHP Jenrry Mejia as he continues to move closer toward locking up a spot in the 2010 Mets bullpen. He passed his test of working on back-to-back days with flying colors. The young phenom pitched a perfect inning of relief in the Mets’ 7-6 exhibition victory over the Braves, […]

Mejia Takes A Walk On The Wild Side

An article by posted on March 20, 2010 0 Comments

By now you all know my stance on simply handing 20-year old Mejia a bullpen spot, especially when it means passing on one of Hisanori Takahashi, Kiko Calero, Nelson Figueroa or even Fernando Nieve who are all performing better than him. I won’t bore you with my theories on how this same experiment didn’t work for Bobby Parnell […]

Regarding the rotation, Adam believes that Jon Niese is still the front-runner to be the team’s fifth starter and writes, The smart money still has Jon Niese claiming the final slot in the rotation […]

Is our bullpen going to be any good?

An article by posted on March 17, 2010 0 Comments

We all know the Mets added a power bat in Jason Bay, are still dealing with injuries/medical issues to key players like Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran, and have huge holes in the starting rotation.  But I haven’t heard as much talk about the bullpen.  A year ago, almost to the day, I wrote a […]
