Much has been made about the 2009 Mets resembling the 1987 team because of the injuries. The difference is that this year’s injuries have mainly cost the Mets their offensive spark plugs while the 1987 team lost their starting pitchers to various injuries. I have done extensive research on the 1987 team and I will try to show why the current team is not dead yet. For those of you who already know the ending [...]
What a punkass Heath Bell turned out to be. I’m not saying that because the National League lost to the junior circuit (Again!), but because I just read his post game comments and it showed me what a jerk he really is. For those of you who made the wise decision not to watch last night’s mid-summer classic, Heath Bell was charged with the loss after allowing a triple to the Detroit Tigers’ Curtis Granderson who [...]
For as bad as the Mets have looked at times this season (and I have advocated blowing up the team or just not paying attention to them anymore), it’s almost miraculous that they are not worse than three games under .500 and 6 ½ games out of first place. When you think about the lousy starting pitching we’ve endured at times, the mental mistakes that seem to multiply, the injuries to most of the key [...]
Nobody could have predicted the first half that the Mets have just completed, after an off season that fueled such high expectations. Sure there were some questions going into the season, but every team has questions, building a team is not an exact science. The Mets’ biggest off-season priority was to revamp the bullpen, and that’s exactly what they did. Anyway, the injuries to so many key players was too tough to overcome for the [...]
According to mlb.com, Phillies’ outfielder Jayson Werth has been added to the National League All-Star team to replace injured Mets centerfielder Carlos Beltran. Werth will join his fellow Phillie outfielders Raul Ibañez and Shane Victorino in St. Louis for the All-Star festivities. Ibañez was voted in by the fans as a starter while Victorino made the team this week as the winner of the Sprint Final Vote. Werth enters tonight’s action with a .268 batting [...]
Believe it or not, the Mets are ever so slowly getting healthier and making their way back. Last night we witnessed the return of Oliver Perez and regardless the mixed results, it was a good first step considering he hasn’t pitched in well over a month. We have some more updates in the news, so lets get you caught up… Carlos Delgado Out since May 11th, Delgado fielded 25 ground balls for the first time [...]
The All Star Break can’t come soon enough for this Mets team. Unfortunately, Major League Baseball has something else in mind. In a landmark case, Major League Baseball has decided to postpone the All Star Game for one week. In an effort to boost viewership and to improve the experience of all in attendance, the decision was made in the late hours Thursday night by the Commissioner’s office. The staff at Metsmerized Online were able [...]
David Lennon, the New York Mets beat writer for Newsday on his twitter account has some news on Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes and it’s not good, not at all. On Reyes, Lennon says: “Reyes back in NYC. Got another cortisone shot. Shut down again for a few days. Not good.” On Beltran the news is not that encouraging either as Lennon says: Beltran only riding bike. No baseball activity. Will be re-evaluated at AS [...]
I know it sounds like bad dialogue out of a comic book or a Michael Bay movie but it is unfortunately true. Omar over the last couple of years seemed to be the “Teflon GM.” The last 2 seasons we have witnessed the Mets collapse and miss going into the playoffs by one game. Omar did not put a team together the past 2 seasons that played baseball in October. The way the season has [...]
It’s been a brutal 4th of July weekend getting swept by the hated Phillies. The Mets now sit below .500 for the season. Clearly the team needs some help – either from the return of our injured stars or via trade – although it appears that the front office is still prudently waiting for the right opportunity and price. Baseball analysts (notably ESPN) have been saying that it is a buyers market (for trades) this [...]
Congratulations to David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Johan Santana and Francisco Rodriguez who were each named to the National League All-Star team on Sunday. Both Wright and Beltran were voted in as National League starters by the fans, while Santana and K-Rod were selected by Phillies manager Charlie Manuel. For the third time in four years, David Wright will start at third base and represent the Mets in the All-Star Game on July 14. Last year [...]
