Thole and Misch Fuel Mets 8-3 Win Over Rockies

An article by posted on September 4, 2009 0 Comments

Even after an impressive 8-3 win over the Rockies, don’t expect me to gloat as much over a win or agonize as much over a loss as I once did throughout the season. Wins and losses don’t mean as much anymore given the Mets current circumstances. Instead, I look for outward signs of hope for next […]

Not to Point Out the Elephant in the Room…

An article by posted on September 2, 2009 0 Comments

At the risk of being called “Captain Obvious” and getting comments of “Gee, ya think?”, I wanted to point out that the Mets are out of the Playoff hunt, and the only thing meaningful about the end of the 2009 Mets season will be playing time for the prospects and maybe to play spoiler. Now […]

Let’s rewind back to Saturday August 15th, 2009. It was a warm, sunny afternoon at Citi Field. The Mets and Giants were in the midst of a pitcher’s duel between two of the best in the game in Johan Santana and Matt Cain. All was going as planned, and both pitchers were in the midst […]

The Mets played one heck of a series against the Phillies this weekend, sweeping Philly and securing their lead atopthe NL East, pushing the Phillies back 16.5 games in the division. At this point, don’t be surprised if the Nats don’t pass the current 4th place team. Then their only hope would be to play spoiler. What a series for […]

  Jeff Francoeur is getting an MRI on his left thumb this morning, after injuring it while making a diving catch the half-inning before he hit into the unassisted triple play Sunday.

Who Are These Doctors Anyway?

You know, I can accept the fact that the injury bug has bitten our Mets hard this season, and that freak accidents have hurt, as has being beaned in the head by opposing pitchers.  We’ve learned to accept that we have average to below-average replacements and that the season was basically over before the all-star […]

Blogger’s disclaimer:  This is a sequel to a previous post I wrote a few weeks ago.  This might look like a humorous piece, but after the events of Saturday’s game surrounding the concussion suffered by David Wright, I’m starting to think the Mets might need to take the contents of this blog into consideration, even […]

A Plea For Sanity

An article by posted on August 16, 2009 0 Comments

I can’t begin to tell you how scared and helpless I felt as I watched David Wright lie still on the ground after being hit in the left temple by a 93-mph Matt Cain fastball. The force of the blow was so powerful that it knocked Wright’s batting helmet clean off his head and sent […]

What was supposed to be a pitcher’s duel between Johan Santana and Matt Cain turned into another story altogether, as David Wright was felled by a 94 MPH fastball thrown by Cain.  The Wright beaning was the most disturbing feature of today’s 5-4 loss to the Giants in 10 innings. Both Santana and Cain had […]
