Mike Pelfrey had another bad outing, but the bullpen brigade and a great comeback spearheaded by Carlos Beltran helped the Mets split the series and win the game, 9-8 Game Notes Mike Pelfrey was hit hard from the onset of the game, getting shelled for three runs in the first, second and one in the third. For those who don’t want to read that, Mike Pelfrey gave up SEVEN RUNS in three innings. His final […]
“Even if the financials break down as reported, one would think the $100 million dollars being earmarked for operating costs will go toward the projected $70 million dollars in losses this season, and any additional losses next season. Basically, the way I see it, this will keep them afloat for two years, and that is assuming they don’t lose the lawsuit. By the end of those two seasons, the Wilpons better have figured out a plan to […]
Most of the talk about Fred Wilpon’s comments to The New Yorker has been about what he has said about the players. However, Wilpon said much more than that and it is important that the whole story, both his comments about Reyes, Wright, and Beltran as well as the rest of the story is addressed. It has long been known that Jackie Robinson has been a personal hero of Wilpon’s, so much so that they […]
Dear Fred Wilpon, When you were a child, didn’t your mother ever teach you that when you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all? In all seriousness this was a mistake on Mr. Wilpon’s part. The Mets are currently 2 games below .500 and by no means out of it this season. Sandy Alderson has been on record saying he believes this team can win now. Mid-season trades are looking less […]
It’s been a while since I last posted with fatherhood taking a great deal of my free time. So let me begin by saying I hope everyone who waited with baited breath for the world to end this weekend enjoyed maxing out their credit cards and cavalierly finding the gumption to tell their bosses off at work; not to mention consumating their affairs with the 20 year family nanny. All done of course with the […]
Since the hiring of Sandy Alderson there seems to be a an overwhelming sentiment among the fanbase that if you don’t 100% support everything Alderson and his front office do then you’re not a real fan of the New York Mets. Gone are the days when having a different opinion was acceptable. Today, Mets fans who disagree with the front office are labeled haters and trolls. They are singled out and attacked on sites like this one or social […]
The idea of a scapegoat is a loaded one, a deeply symbolic one with biblical meanings surrounding it. In sports, it has its own special meaning. I recently saw a movie called “Catching Hell,” which was a documentary surrounding Steve Bartman. Perhaps you’ve heard of him, he was a guy who was infamously singled-out by not only the Cubs fanbase but the Cubs players themselves in 2003, when he reached for a fly ball coming […]
Carlos Beltran has never been many things. He’s never been the most popular player on the Mets. He’s never been a media darling. He’s never been the vocal rah-rah type of leader some teams have. He’s never had to be any of these people because for years, Beltran has let his play on the field do the talking for him. Yet he still has his critics. There are some fans who will never forgive him […]
Carlos Beltran ERUPTED for three home runs, and that offense helped mask a subpar outing from Jonathon Niese and the Mets won the series by winning today, 9-5 versus the Rockies. Game Notes Jonathon Niese went six and one-third innings, giving up five runs on seven hits (two home runs) while walking two and striking out three. Although the final line does look ugly, most of the damage on Jonathon was done in the seventh […]
