Hot or Not: We’re in the Home Stretch Edition!

An article by posted on September 20, 2008

The Mets climbed back into first place after a 9-5 victory over the much maligned Braves. Oh, and that one team in Philadelphia got walloped by the Marlins (Yay Marlins!) Welcome to another installment of Hot or Not. I’m hoping the Mets can carry this column into the post season. Daniel Murphy and Nick Evans […]

We’re in the Home Stretch!

An article by posted on September 13, 2008

The New York Mets have 17 games left to play. As has been the story all season, we blew a 7 game lead with 17 left to play. It’s bad enough we historically collapsed, but if I have to hear about it on a national broadcast one more time, I’ll break my TV. Seriously, the […]

Carlos Beltran 5, Marlins 4

An article by posted on August 30, 2008

Last night, the New York Mets were down to their last strike. Luis Castillo got on base, followed by David Wright and Carlos Delgado. Enter Carlos Beltran. The first pitch he sees off Kevin Gregg ends up in the right-center field stands, in the section of Dolphin Stadium aptly known as the “Fish Tank.” And […]

After doing what was expected necessary, our New York Metropolitans find themselves sitting atop the NL East. Clutch hitting, a stellar rotation, and a bullpen that saves games (for a change) all played pivotal roles this week. It also helped that Manny was being Manny in L.A. instead of Boston. And I would also like […]

An article by posted on July 5, 2008

Welcome to another installment of Hot or Not. If you would have asked me last week, I would have said our most frustrating loss was the 11-0 blowout to Seattle. This morning, I would say yesterday’s loss to the Phillies would go down as our most frustrating. Since Willie Randolph left, we’ve moved up to […]

Opening Day…Well, They’re Not Exactly Jitters

An article by posted on March 28, 2008

The Mets have not decided on a fifth starter this far into Spring Training. They’re saying Jorge Sosa may get the job, with both Brian Stokes and Joe Smith able to prove themselves worthy of the bullpen. Both Mike Pelfrey and El Duque aren’t ready to start, but I think Pelfrey will be ready before […]

Would Putting Pelfrey in the ‘Pen be Such A Bad Thing?

An article by posted on December 28, 2007

While rumors are swirling about the Mets actually being in the Johan Santana race, I don’t want to give up the New Orleans Zephyrs to ultimately spend $200 million on Santana. Sorry ’bout that. I want Carlos Gomez; we’d be unstoppable when it comes to stealing bases. I want Philip Humber; we haven’t really seen much […]
