MetsMerized Player Of The Week! 6/28-7/5

An article by posted on July 6, 2009 0 Comments

So this week wasn’t good, and that’s a major understatement. A lot of Met fans, including myself, are really getting tired of watching this so-called Major League team try to play baseball. Any opposing pitcher seems to dominate them, and things are not looking good. However, there was one bright spot this week, and undoubtedly I have […]

An article by posted on July 5, 2009 0 Comments

It’s been a brutal 4th of July weekend getting swept by the hated Phillies.  The Mets now sit below .500 for the season.  Clearly the team needs some help – either from the return of our injured stars or via trade – although it appears that the front office is still prudently waiting for the […]

Yesterday while a guest of Kevin Kennedy’s Inside Pitch on Sirius XM, former Mets closer and captain John Franco, threw a spit ball at his former team when he was asked to comment on the current state of the Mets. “Watching them almost every day, there’s no leadership there,” Franco said during an interview with SIRIUS XM. Nobody […]

Mets Under .500, Fall To Brewers 10-6

An article by posted on June 29, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets lost to the Milwaukee Brewers 10-6 tonight although it wasn’t as close as the score would suggest. The Mets looked lifeless out there tonight and their body language has become a concern to me. Every now and then when the cameras peeked into the dugout, all you saw were a bunch of sad […]

Citi Field – Where Homeruns Go To Die

 I read an interesting article on ESPN by Tristan Cockcroft entitled Shea It Isn’t. The piece is well written and well researched and is a fair comparison of the two parks. One of the interesting parts of his article was the following chart which shows exactly which non-homers would have been homeruns at Shea Stadium. Hitter […]

Alright, so I was going to say “I hope everyone’s having a good day”, but watching K-rod walk Mariano last night has sucked the life out of me. I wasn’t favoring the umpire’s strike zone last night, or the ESPN announcers…but that’s not what I’m writing about. I do hope everyone’s having a good day, […]

I cant recall a season where our Mets have been so decimated by injuries. I know that we should actually consider ourselves lucky in many ways. We’ve last 40% of our starting staff along with our newly acquired set-up man. David Wright has been forced into the role of trying to carry this entire team […]

A Closer Look At David Wright

An article by posted on June 27, 2009 0 Comments

Our All-Star third baseman, David Wright, is in the middle of the weirdest offensive year of his life. I think it’s actually cause for worry. David Wright is batting .351 and he’s leading the NL in batting, and I won’t dispute that he’s been on base more than he ever has. However, I became very […]
