UPDATE: It looks like MetsBlog and Adam Rubin accidentaly posted the wrong lineups today, but I’m gonna keep this blog going just for a good argument and debate. MetsBlog and Adam Rubin are reporting that Carlos Beltran will be batting third tonight and David Wright drops down to the fifth spot in the lineup. Let me be the first to applaud this move and I hope it’s not just a temporary move either. For a […]
Another 13 runners left on base, was the dark side to an otherwise satisfying win Friday night against the Brewers. It’s a trend that has become all too prevalent for this offense which returned intact from last season. Now with just ten games in the books, the Mets have left 89 runners on base. That amounts to almost nine stranded baserunners per game. As long as this disturbing trend continues, it makes it difficult for […]
The first week of the season has been one of mixed emotions. It has provided us with both sources for optimism as well as reason for concern. Our hitting is off to a good start. Delgado has continued his offensive onslaught from last year, Beltran and Wright are definitely doing their part, Daniel Murphy is hitting just under 300 and Reyes, although a bit sluggish thus far, will soon kick it into high gear. Last […]
Typically, when a pitcher throws seven scoreless innings and allows just three hits and strikes out thirteen batters, he comes out of it with a win. But, that wasn’t the case today for Johan Santana, Sunday’s hard luck loser. The Mets lost a heartbreaker to the Marlins by a score of 2-1. Both Marlins runs were unearned and the result of a fly ball that dropped out of the glove of Daniel Murphy in the […]
Does four games provide you with enough data to start spotting trends? Probably not, but I’m going to do it anyway. Here are two very disturbing trends… Pitchers Not Going Deep 1. Johan Santana - 5.2 innings pitched 2, Mike Pelfrey – 5.0 innings pitched 3. Oliver Perez – 4.1 innings pitched 4. John Maine – 5.0 innings pitched 5. Bullpen – 14.2 innings pitched Final Analysis – So far Mets pitchers are averaging five innings per […]
The 4-0 Marlins beat the Mets 5-4 with a walk off hit in the ninth inning by Jorge Cantu off reliever Darren O’Day. You’re not going to win many games when you leave 14 runners on base, and that’s exactly what the Mets did. Maine started and other than letting up two solo homers to Hanley Ramirez and Dan Uggla, he had a good outing allowing just those two hits and a walk in five […]

Even though I already knew what it was going to say, when I got my Sports Illustrated in the mail, I turned right to the page where they had their playoff predictions. And as I saw Mets over Dodgers, Mets over Cubs, and Mets over Angels, I forgot that SI had a curse of sorts. But then I remembered, and I hoped that they cursed CC Sabathia instead of the Mets. As the eve of […]
The Mets outfield has some question marks going into the season – but it should have the depth to be solid all year. Other then Jeremy Reed replacing Endy Chavez, it will look similar to the end of the last year. Although it has some questions, the pieces fit together nicely to give it depth should anyone not live up to expectations. In left field, Daniel Murphy and Fernando Tatis figure to split time – […]
