Mets Waste Another Harvey Gem In 2-1 Loss To Nats

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 […]

Recker And Byrd Homer To Lift Mets Past Giants

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 […]

Buck Wasn’t Happy About Being Lifted For Pinch-Hitter

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 […]

How Well Does Murphy Have To Hit To Keep His Job At 1B?

An article by posted on May 22, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

If At First You Do Succeed…

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 […]

An article by posted on May 18, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

If You’re Going To Play Both Murphy and Reed…

An article by posted on May 18, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

An article by posted on May 12, 2009 0 Comments

Last night, I was feeling a little masochistic and I decided that a self imposed torture of listening to WFAN after the game would do the trick. It did. I did manage however to hear an interesting call about Dan Murphy that managed to find a way to sneak in between all the ”Jerry Manuel sucks” calls, and the “this […]
