Last night, while watching the Mets go down to the Braves 5-3, Gary Cohen repeated the score as the Mets headed into the ninth inning. Out of the blue, Keith Hernandez wondered out loud when was the last time the Mets hit a three run homer. Neither he or Gary could remember when, and nor could I. It may have occurred in June, but that wasn’t the point they were making. Back in 2006, when the Mets [...]
Okay so it’s not really the conference call from hell, but lately doesn’t it seem like Omar’s become the harbinger of death whenever he addresses the media? Today he had another one of those conference calls where he throws an unexpected curveball at us, or was it a spitter? There are many versions out there about what was said, but I think I’ll go with Newsday’s David Lennon’s take on it because he does an [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
It’s been such a trying season… You try and maintain some semblance of optimism, but at some point you become overwhelmed with the errors, running miscues, lack of fundamentals, etc. Everyone is blaming the injuries for this Mets debacle ever since Carlos Delgado first hit the disabled list. But what happens next season when Carlos Delgado packs his bags and goes back to the American League? We keep hearing about Dan Murphy and Nick Evans [...]
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 [...]
We’ve said it time and time again here on this site, but I wouldn’t trust the Mets’ medical team. with a hangnail. After all the wrong diagnoses and misrepresentations and errant treatments, Carlos Beltran has seen enough bad medicine to let him seek a second opinion with an outside doctor. According to Jon Heyman, Beltran may get second opinion from and outside doctor for his ailing knee. Beltran who was placed on the 15-day DL, could [...]
