I am a new writer here, so I thought to start off, before talking Mets, I would introduce myself. I am a 19-year old college student. I have been a fan of the Mets my entire life, but sadly I have not been able to see them win it all. I have had the privilege to go to quite a few games, although I have only been able to go to one game at CitiField. [...]
With the Nationals acquisition of Edwin Jackson yesterday, we need to start seriously considering them as legitimate contenders to not only have a good season, but to potentially win the NL East or at minimum steal a wild card berth. With their off season additions the Nationals will have a very well rounded and talented starting rotation. A rotation of Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Edwin Jackson, Jordan Zimmermann and John Lannan spells trouble for NL East and the rest of the National [...]
This must be what Sandy Alderson and the Wilpon’s think of us as they sit around their luxurious million dollar estates eating their caviar and sipping their imported wine. Safe to say the departure of Jose Reyes, while not a surprise, was like a stab through our collective hearts. We hoped against all hope that somehow, someway, Jose would return in 2012. Our hearts told us one thing but our heads told us something else. [...]
The Mets will play their final game ever this evening at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. It was a short-lived history, since the Marlins were brought into the league as an expansion team in 1993. Coming into the last game, the Mets are 73-72 in games played on the road against the Marlins. They will try to stay above .500 tonight with first pitch scheduled for 5:10 p.m. since the Mets have a [...]
With the Mets 7 1/2 games behind the wild card leading Atlanta Braves, but still having two months to go in the season, I’m not one to give up and give in concerning the Amazin’s playoff chances here in 2011. After the trade of closer Francisco Rodriguez the night of the All-Star game, and then just a few short weeks later with the trade of the resurgent Carlos Beltran many saw this as this team [...]
With the news breaking that All-Star Shortstop Jose Reyes would run Sunday, which he did, and then fly to Brooklyn today for a rehab game with the Cyclones – it’s just what the doctor ordered for the Mets. Right now the Mets are on thin ice, they stand 8 1/2 games behind the wild card leading Atlanta Braves, who like the Philadelphia Phillies just don’t seem to lose, making it difficult for the Mets to make up any [...]
I am one of the regulars on a weekly Kult of Mets Personalities podcast, and if you listened to it, you would know that I am the resident Mike “Big Pelf” Pelfrey homer. I root for him probably harder than any other Met. I don’t know why either, but I feel a personal connection to Big Pelf. It’s mostly because I saw him pitch in his major league debut in 2006. I always felt he [...]
Atlanta Braves: (78-56; Leader) Alright, you already know what the Bravos have been up to, but did you know that they’re going to play the Florida Marlins next? Riveting stuff. Also, Tim Hudson won NL Pitcher of the Month on the back of his 1.71 ERA in August. Philadelphia Phillies: (76-58; -2) Last week, when I wrote about the team from Philly, they were on a four-game losing streak. Now, they’ve won six of seven, [...]
Atlanta Braves: (73-54; Leader) The Braves were swept by the Colorado Rockies, and look to rebound this week against the Florida Marlins. Saturday’s matchup features two 14-game winners in Tim Hudson and Ricky Nolasco. Sunday’s game features two 11-game winners in Derek Lowe and Josh Johnson. Philadelphia Phillies: (70-57; -3) As bad as the Braves had it, the Phillies were worse. They were swept in four games, at home, to Roy Oswalt’s old buddies in [...]
Atlanta Braves: (71-50; Leader) The Braves took two of three form the Washington Nationals. The Bravos will travel to Chicago to play the Cubs. So apparently, Derrek Lee won’t have far to travel. Philadelphia Phillies: (68-52; -2.5) The Phillies took two of three from the San Francisco Giants, (they did not face Lincecum), and will head home to play the Nationals. Florida Marlins: (60-60; -10.5) The Marlins took three of four from the Pittsburgh Pirates, [...]
Atlanta Braves: (66-48; Leader) The Braves took two of three from the Houston Astros, and will open up a weekend series with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Mike Minor made his debut against the Astros, going 6 IP with 4 Runs, 3 Earned. The big news out of Atlanta, though, is that we may have seen the last of Larry “Chipper” Jones. Jones, expected to retire after the season, suffered a torn ACL, ending his season. [...]
