Ever since Shea Stadium closed its doors for the final time in 2008, David Wright has not been the same player. At least that’s what I hear from many Mets fans. Although I do think the move from Shea Stadium to Citi Field has hurt Wright’s power stroke, I don’t think the ballpark is to blame for his overall decline at the plate from All-Star hitter to strikeout-prone former slugger. As a matter of fact, […]
The New York Mets have struggled in recent years, only making two postseason appearances since 2000. Several large-ticket free agent signings led to the promise of better things to come, but several of those signings didn’t pan out according to plan (Pedro Martinez, Carlos Beltran and Jason Bay, to name a few). However, the Mets have had stars who have shined in the spotlight of the big city since the beginning of the 21st century, […]
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 […]
Synonymous with the New York Mets is Tom Seaver. “Tom Terrific” is known as “The Franchise,” the player who was singularly responsible for making the Mets relevant. Adding him to the pitching staff with the likes of Jerry Koosman, Gary Gentry and Nolan Ryan, and coupling him with players like Cleon Jones and Tommie Agee, caused the Mets to win their first championship in 1969. Legend has it that the Mets were never quite the […]
When the Mets fell to 61-68 I began to think about how bad this might get. They had fought so hard all season long, and now the injuries were finally starting to take their toll on this young roster. The guys like Turner, Tejada, and Gee among others were beginning to get exposed playing everyday and this team would spiral out of control to another terrible record. As it turned out, the opposite happened. The […]
Mike Pelfrey had another poor outing, but the offense spearheaded by Lucas Duda’s second home run in two days rallied to snatch a win from the Nationals, 6-3. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey took the mound, and as has been a recent theme has not had his best stuff, and when he runs into that one bad inning, it doesn’t end. Pelfrey threw 106 pitches over 4 and two-third innings, giving up three runs on five hits, […]
The offense, spearheaded by a David Wright three run shot in the first never let up, and R.A. Dickey pitched a quality six innings in the Mets 7-3 win against the Nationals. Game Notes R.A. Dickey had a good outing and the definition of a quality start, going six innings allowing three runs on nine hits, striking out one. Dickey may have not had his strikeout stuff today, but allowing three runs is nothing to […]
Miguel Batista pitched a solid game, and the Mets offense was buoyed by Marlins mistakes in their 7-5 win. Game Notes Miguel Batista, just recently called up and in his first MLB start as a Met, had a solid outing for his 100th career win. Batista went six innings, allowing two runs on six hits, walking three and striking out three. Batista gave up two of his walks and five of his hits in the […]
Earlier today, my colleague at MMO, Jason Pafundi, wrote an interesting piece on why the Mets should consider trading David Wright. Jason is not the first person on this site or on other sites to explore this topic. The trading of the Mets’ third baseman is a topic that can be argued for days on end, and people on both sides can present valid points to defend their respective arguments. But I’m not here to […]
