David Is Definitely Not On The Wright Track

An article by posted on May 11, 2010 0 Comments

It’s safe to say that David Wright has been in a real rut at the plate as of late. He’s back to pressing at the plate, his swing is way off kilter, and he’s even letting his emotions get the best of him. On the surface, you look at Wright’s numbers on the season and there’s […]

Time For Junior To Grow Up

An article by posted on May 11, 2010 0 Comments

Those of you who know me and follow my writing know that I have a unique nickname for Jose Reyes.  It’s “Junior”.  “Why Junior?”, you ask?  His initials are JR, which is the abbreviation for junior.  And right now, it couldn’t be more appropriate. Before everyone gets bent out of shape and calls for my […]

Mets Could Have Six Players With 20+ Home Runs This Season

An article by posted on May 8, 2010 0 Comments

Last season was one of frustration and futility where home runs and the Mets were concerned. A brand new ball park was held to blame for the lack of oomph in the Mets offense and many were convinced that David Wright would never eclipse 15 homers in a season again. If this season has shown […]

The Wright Stuff

When I filled out some paperwork for Joe D. I named David Wright as my favorite Met player.   I always say that, but I rarely discuss why  – it’s just so simple – he’s an all around good guy and good ballplayer.  David Allen Wright who plays third base for the New York Mets was born in […]

Jonathon Niese was hit hard, and the Mets could hardly come up with a string of timely hits in their 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Reds. Game Notes: Jonathon Niese was hit hard, going six innings, allowing four runs, twelve hits including giving up a couple of homers. The only saving grace for Niese all night […]

Is The Longball This Season’s X-Factor?

An article by posted on May 5, 2010 0 Comments

My hunch is that few to no Mets fans now miss Brian Schneider, last year’s non-entity of a backstop. Yeah, and the non-entity the year before that. After Fernando Nieve blew Maine’s 4-2 lead in the eighth inning (Mainey threw six above average innings in one of his best performances thus far) in Cincy by […]

Sunday’s Loss Needed To Be One Of Our ’62′ Wins

An article by posted on May 3, 2010 0 Comments

No matter how good a team is they will still lose 50 games over the course of the season. On the flip side, the worst team in baseball, no matter how awful they may be, will still manage to win 50 games. It’s those other 62 games that separates pennant winners from last place. Tonight’s […]

Mets Confidence Is Growing And Sweeping The NL

  “We’re playing pretty good baseball. I knew once those middle of the order guys hit, it could be a lot of fun. The good thing is we have won games when they haven’t hit; now that they’re hitting it’s more of an all inclusive thing.”  ~  Jerry Manuel   “It’s great to see that everybody […]

Baffling But Awesome Start

An article by posted on April 28, 2010 0 Comments

Maybe I should move more often.  My family moved from Tennessee to Wisconsin two weeks ago, and about that time the Mets were slipping deeper and deeper into a funk, starting out with a 2-6 record.  It looked like Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya might not last until the end of April with the team.
