Will Wright Ever Hit 30 Homeruns Again?

An article by posted on September 15, 2009 0 Comments

I recently was emailed this question by one of our readers. I heard that the Mets will not alter the dimensions of Citi Field next season. Does this mean that David Wright is doomed to be a 10-12 homerun hitter instead of a 30 homerun hitter? I was a little surprised myself when I heard […]

On 9/9/09, Major League Baseball announced a fan poll contest, called the All-Time 9. What that means is that fans can go to official website of their favorite teams and vote for the best single seasons at a position in team history, with the goal of putting together an all-time lineup. After a quick jaunt […]

The Power Is Back On! Wright’s HR Shocks Phils 10-9

An article by posted on September 12, 2009 0 Comments

Rest easy, Mets fans.  It appears David Wright has finally paid his electric bill as his power has been turned back on.  Wright had his best offensive game of the season, collecting two home runs (his first multi-homer game since September 14, 2008 against the Braves) and tying his career-high with six RBI.  His second […]

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 […]

Wright Taking The Right Precautions

An article by posted on September 1, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

Let’s Play A Little Role Reversal, Shall We?

An article by posted on August 25, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

An article by posted on August 24, 2009 0 Comments

  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. The thumb swelled Sunday night. Francoeur will be out of the lineup for Monday’s game and let’s hope that’s all he will miss. […]

Who Are These Doctors Anyway?

An article by posted on August 19, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

The Citi Field Cat Takes Its Latest Victim

An article by posted on August 17, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]
