This is the time during Spring Training that all Major League teams start to cut down their rosters, sending some players down to their Minor League affiliates, while others are sent on their way right out of the organization. The funny thing about this process is that there are very few surprises as to who stays and who goes. Sometimes a young player with just a little minor league experience makes such an outstanding impression that […]
On Tuesday, Peter Botte of the The Daily News had some quotes from Darryl Strawberry regarding the Mets offseason and whether he felt they could do more, and while his remarks set off a mild ripple effect in the Mets blogosphere, Steve Popper of The Record tells us that there’s even more to the story. Strawberry didn’t mince words while describing the Mets apparent lack of toughness and chemistry. “Teams come over here and drill hitters and stuff like that, and you […]
Throughout history, the greatest conflicts are the ones which pit man against his fellow man. Moses vs. Pharaoh; Alexander Hamilton vs. Aaron Burr; Darth Vader vs. Luke Skywalker. However, not all conflicts must end in death. On that note, there is nothing more exciting than a showdown between a pitcher and batter in an important and critical moment of a baseball game. The Mets have had some incredibly exciting and hair raising moments. Below is […]
The year 1976, when the Mets won 86 games, concluded an eight year (’69- ’76) period in which the Mets finished over .500 seven times. Of course, prior to 1969, the Mets had seven consecutive losing seasons beginning in their inaugural season of 1962. Then began a drought from 1977 through 1983 during which the Mets finished last or next to last in seven consecutive seasons. They lost between 94 and 99 games each season […]
Yeah, it’s been difficult being a Mets fan these last few seasons. But that doesn’t mean we don’t love our team. Here are a few things I am thankful for as we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow: David Wright, Carlos Beltran and Johan Santana: Yes, Wright forgot how to hit home runs, and the other two guys missed a big chunk of 2009, but we still have a nice core of all-stars. Some teams don’t. The […]
Before 2009 turned into a nightmare year for the Mets, their fans we were excited. Aaron Heilman was gone, the Mets signed K-Rod and added J.J. Putz to the bullpen and they were opening up a new ballpark. For the final 2 seasons Shea Stadium saw the Mets playoff dreams evaporate on the last day of the season, we were hoping that the demons of Shea were gone with our brand new ball park. Citi […]
It was 22 years ago today on a lazy Sunday afternoon at Wrigley Field in Chicago. The Mets were battling the St. Louis Cardinals for the division title and needed to win the finale of their four-game series against the Cubs after being defeated in the first three games. They were in the throes of a six losses in eight games streak after cutting the Cardinals’ lead from 10½ to 3½ games. In those eight […]
I watched a Mets game the other day and to say we looked terrible and inept would be an understatement. The opposing team scored 2 in the top of the first and 2 more in the second. There was a hit batsmen, an error, a wild pitch and a couple of walks thrown in for good measure. There were also 3 stolen bases in the first 4 innings, not to mention ‘action in the Mets […]
There are Hall of Famers and then there are others who put up solid numbers for an entire career. One particular player compiled a 289 career BA and 2715 hits over 22 years. These numbers are not worthy of enshrinement in Cooperstown but he was a solid, consistent player. He was an All-Star and once won the NL Batting crown with a 324 average. As a first baseman, he made only 128 errors in 13,901 […]
