As reported on ESPN’s SportsCenter and mlb.com, Cardinals’ reliever Brad Thompson has been suspended by Major League Baseball for throwing a pitch near the head of David Wright. The league deemed the inside pitch to be intentional, justifying the suspension. Thompson was to have begun serving his suspension tonight as the Cardinals opened up a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park. However, Thompson chose to file an appeal, thus delaying his suspension until […]
One of the more telling signs about the makeup of the current New York Mets, was clearly visible during the Wednesday matinée against the Cardinals. The Mets may have won the game 9-0, but the Cardinals showed the Mets that they were the team to be reckoned with and not to be messed around with… or else. In the fifth inning, Nelson Figueroa hit Albert Pujols with an inside pitch that Pujols seemed to turn into. […]
As some of you may have noticed today, Zach Braff appeared on SNY’s telecast of the Mets/Cardinals game yesterday. During his interview with Kevin Burkhardt, Braff discussed how he was in the process of filming episodes for the popular sitcom, Scrubs, which is entering its ninth season. This sent me off on a random thought of which Mets players/announcers, both past and present, would play some of the show’s characters. I figured why not parlay […]
Blogger’s disclaimer: I am not being serious in this post in any way, shape or form. I’ve just had enough trying to figure out what went wrong with this year’s team. While others blame Omar Minaya or the trainers, I’ve found something else to blame for this year’s misfortunes. Read on… It was April 13, 2009. Citi Field was hosting its first regular season game between the Mets and the Padres. The team was intact […]
At this stage of the game I would think that even the most optimistic of Met fans would have to agree that there will be no “meaningful September baseball” this year. With a schedule featuring mostly teams that were below .500 the Mets had a chance to make a splash in the NL Wild Card race, instead they made a thud. The Mets have been a part of my summer for well over thirty years, […]
So here we are, still a mile away from playoffs ambitions and the hope in the fanbase is dwindling. However, I’m still believing. One of the things that does worry me is the true status of our injured players. The list is long and isn’t easy on the eyes, and it has been growing for a long time now. The Mets hope to receive help to their team of the walking wounded soon enough here […]
Johan Santana rebounded from his rough last outing against the Astros to pitch brilliantly today, as the Mets cruised to a 7-0 victory over the Rockies in game one of the day-night doubleheader. Six days after giving up a dozen hits to the Astros, Santana recorded a positive dozen as he picked up his 12th victory against eight losses. ‘Han The Man pitched seven shutout innings, allowing four hits and one walk while striking out […]
Jonathon Niese was called up from Triple-A Buffalo to replace the injured Fernando Nieve in the starting rotation. If he continues to pitch like he did tonight, he might not have to go back anytime soon. After a rough first inning, Niese settled down and pitched beautifully for six additional innings. The offense came alive and the long ball returned to the Mets as they defeated the Astros 10-3 at Minute Maid Park. After three […]
We can beat a dead horse all day long about how bad and disappointing the 2009 Mets have become, and how we’re going to have to endure a few months of meaningless baseball now that all hope for the playoffs is basically lost. So instead of beating the horse, I’m just going to point out a few things I noticed when perusing stats last night (through Sunday’s games)….. The Mets have 53 home runs, worst […]
