The Mets can spend this offseason. That has been the overall message conveyed for the past several months, however will they spend and to what degree remains the begging question. The “Red Sox Model” has been mentioned a great deal, meaning the Amazin’s would avoid the top-tier free agents, instead finding the Shane Victorinos and Mike Napolis on the market and signing them to lesser deals. Staying true to the theme of this mid-level shopping […]
Put It In The Books! The Mets 2011 season is finally over! What can I say about the Mets 2011 season except thankfully it has finally come to an end. Coming into this season I didn’t expect much and in turn we didn’t get much from this team Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins put out there this year. I know there are people who will for some reason say this was a good season. I […]
Mike Pelfrey had one of his usual one inning explosions, and the Mets offense couldn’t hit with RISP in their 6-1 loss to the Brewers Game Notes Mike Pelfrey took 86 pitches to get through two difficult innings, and three fairly clean innings. Pelfrey’s final line was five innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits, walking four and striking out four. Pelfrey didn’t seem to have good control at all, but a nearly […]
Jonathon Niese started rough, but settled into a groove but a poor umpiring call in the seventh inning erased a possible rally and a baserunner, and the Mets lost 5-1 against the Yankees Game Notes Jonathon Niese had a rough beginning to the start, but seemed to settle in during the later innings. Jonathon went six innings, allowing three runs on nine hits, walking two and striking out seven. Niese was hit hard in the […]
Dillon Gee had his worst major league outing, and the bullpen didn’t fare much better as the Mets lost to the Oakland Athletics, 7-2 Game Notes Dillon Gee had a horrible outing, and it isn’t shown by the basic stats. Dillon Gee allowed four runs on three hits, striking out one but walking SIX. Gee walked in a run, and just got burned by an inability to put batters away. With the bases loaded in […]
The New York Mets are in serious trouble. Any fan watching the early games could have told you that, though. However, they are in worse shape than I ever thought they’d be in. Through the first ten games, their pitching as a whole has been absolutely horrendous. I’m not going to lie and say I expected Pelfrey to pitch like an ace. However, he’s not only not pitched like an ace, he hasn’t even pitched […]
Chris Young was dominant today, allowing one hit over seven innings but the bullpen blew it in the eighth, and then in the eleventh and the Mets lost 7-3, losing the series as well. Game Notes Chris Young looked excellent today, allowing one run on one hit over seven innings, walking two and striking out five. Young was exactly as advertised, having a 14:1 fly out to ground out ratio today. Young was consistently putting […]
Mark Simon of ESPN New York just put some scary thoughts into my head this morning. While he has some good things to say about the Mets acquisition of D.J. Carrasco, there’s one thing about him that looms ominously over his career. But there is a kryptonite that has plagued Carrasco throughout his major league career, and it’s one that reminds us of one of the Mets most significant statistical issues from last season. It’s […]
