Despite reports that the Mets are not actively shopping Daniel Murphy, ESPN’s Jayson Stark said in a chat today, that the Mets second baseman is available if teams were willing to pay a high price. “They’d definitely move him,” he writes. “But they want quality back. Sandy Alderson does a really good job of making […]

I recently answered some questions for The Nats Blog in anticipation of the upcoming weekend series with the Washington Nationals. The Mets are off to a 6-8 start, are you disappointed with how things are going right now? Definitely. Although I wouldn’t say I’m surprised by their early performance, it’s still disappointing to experience. The […]
Jerry Manuel is fed up with the lack of production from his offense and he has decided to shake things up for this afternoon’s game against the Cardinals. A frustrated Manuel said, ” Things aren’t working right now. I need to give our hottest hitter, Carlos Beltran more at-bats.” Well wake up and smell the […]
Losing 6-4 to the Cards isn’t the story. It’s how the Mets lost that’s darkening every fans mood. How can so much badly played baseball be packed into 9 innings! Perez returned to his bad self. Four decent innings, and that’s all she wrote. Loss of control, and then batting practice. Yadier owns us. We […]
The Mets have yet to make a decision regarding Mike Pelfrey and his upcoming start on Sunday. Pelfrey said yesterday, that he wants to pitch and that he’s not concerned about the forearm. Jerry Manuel remains non-committal either way, and most have surmised that the decision has already been made to skip his start on […]
A 7-2 victory was just what the doctor ordered. Yes! When Ron Darling says that a guy “pitched really well tonight” who am I to dispute? Given the weather and lack of great run support, I agree. He looked good and maintained his composure. His slider looked good, and nice to see he’s sporting a […]
This much we know about the Mets in 2009—the bullpen is improved, Johan appears to be on a Cy Young mission, and Daniel Murphy is a decent #2 hitter. We also know that the Mets can’t hit in the clutch, the numbers 2, 3 and 4 starters are huge question marks, and they have a knack for making huge mental mistakes at the worst possible times.
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 […]
It’s amazing to me how some people not only try to play armchair general manager, but how they can make some absolutely idiotic trade proposals. On LoHud.com yesterday, a dude named “80s Joel” proposed that the Mets trade David Wright to the Rays for Evan Longoria.
In a bit of a surprising move, Jerry Manuel announced to reporters that he plans to have leftfielder Dan Murphy batting second in the lineup. The move means that Luis Castillo would become the eight place hitter. It’s a move that has been debated for months here on this site, and one that will make […]
Happy Spring Training Mets fans! I can’t wait for the season to begin so the Mets can prove everybody wrong! With the arrival of Spring Training, I’m bringing back the Hot or Not feature. I really can’t judge anyone based on their performance just yet, mainly because half the team is leaving for the World […]
