What a difference a few hours makes. Matt Harvey toed the rubber and allowed no earned runs in eight innings tonight, but as we’ve come to expect, the run support was not there and the Mets dropped a heartbreaker 2-1. The game was quiet for three innings, but Josh Satin got it going in the top of the fourth when he drove a double to the opposite field. John Buck followed with a double of his own, […]
It was déjà vu all over again to start Game 2 of the Mets’ three-game series against the Giants. The Giants took an early 2-0 off Dillon Gee. This time the Giants scored on an Anthony Recker error trying to catch Brandon Belt stealing that scored Hunter Pence and a poor fielder’s choice by Daniel Murphy that allowed Belt to score. The Mets battled back in the fourth and hung three on Barry Zito on […]
John Buck wen’t 0-for-4 in last night’s win over the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. He struck out all four time to earn the dreaded Golden Sombrero. In my recap of the 3-0 win, I mentioned that it may be time to start giving Anthony Recker a few more starts – not so much because he’s that much better than Buck, I couldn’t honestly say that. But it would be good to find out exactly what […]
So now that we finally figured out where Dan Murphy should play defensively, how long before we start worrying about his lack of hitting this month? I mean it’s great that we found him a permanent position he can call his own, but will he hit enough to justify his hold on first base both now as well as the future? If I knew that Murphy was projected to be a 30-100 type slugger as […]
As I watched the start of the game last night and got my first look at Dan Murphy manning his new digs at first base, I have to admit my expectations for success were very low. Based on what I had already seen of Murphy at leftfield, and how reluctant the Mets were to move him to first base, I could only surmise that he must be even worse as an infielder than he was as […]
Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post, reported on Jerry Manuel’s interview on WFAN with Mike Francesa. During his appearance, Manuel said that Dan Murphy will start at first base tonight against the Dodgers. Daniel Murphy will start at first base for the Mets tonight against the Dodgers, and Jerry Manuel said the second-year player needs to produce there to stay in the lineup. With Carlos Delgado out, Manuel is using Gary Sheffield regularly in the […]
According to Adam Rubin of the Daily News, here are the main points covered during Omar Minaya’s conference call with the media. 1. As most of you already know, Carlos Delgado will be out an estimated ten weeks after surgery to repair his hip injury. The ten weeks is estimated based on the track record of other players with a similar condition. 2. Don’t look for the Mets to make a trade. Omar Minaya insisted […]
Last nights loss coupled with the loss of first baseman Carlos Delgado for an extended period of time, is enough for me to begin to consider some serious options in terms of a trade. First lets consider the whys… 1. The experiment in leftfield with Dan Murphy has been shelved because Jerry Manuel feels he needs a presence in the middle of the lineup. Right now that presence is named Gary Sheffield. 2. Carlos Delgado’s […]
Maybe someone can help me out on this, but if both Jeremy Reed and Daniel Murphy are in the lineup, shouldn’t you play Reed in leftfield and Murphy at first base? Wouldn’t it make sense to be defensively flawed at one position rather than two? Jeremy Reed is a fine defensive outfielder, and in his career he has less than five starts at first base all of them coming as a Met this month. If Dan Murphy […]
