I’m not usually too keen on tipping my cap to players not wearing Mets uniforms, but this could not be overlooked. In an incident that was sort of forgotten in the Mets doubleheader sweep of the Marlins two days ago, Marlins third baseman Greg Dobbs did something that transcends the sport. In the ninth inning of the first, game Dobbs ripped a line drive into the first few rows along the first base line. The […]
So Steve Carlton picked up the win last night for the Philadelphia Phillies… Actually, it was rookie Vance Worley, throwing a Carlton-like game, who picked up the win. During their history, the Mets always seem to have a knack for losing to no-name pitchers. Granted, Worley is on fire right now, but there’s no reason why this rookie, who was only supposed to tread water in the Phillies All-Star rotation, should have beaten the Mets […]
Now that Jason Isringhausen has recorded his 300th save, Terry Collins told reporters that he would start weaning one of his younger relief pitchers—Bobby Parnell or Pedro Beato—to become the team’s pitchers. Izzy was just what this team needed this year, whether it was his ability to get clutch outs in big spots or the leadership he provided to the younger players. However, the likelihood that he returns next year is minimal to say the […]
After hearing his name every single day for quite awhile a few weeks ago, Carlos Beltran has almost become a forgotten figure in New York. Maybe it just seems that way since almost every post was Beltran related, but even so Beltran’s association with the Mets is history. Anyway, here’s a Beltran update. In 11 games for the San Francisco Giants, Beltran is hitting just .244. He has no home runs and just two RBI. […]
The tradition of Long Island baseball continues to grow as more local young men are making themselves known around the minor leagues. Huntington’s own Cam Maron joins the list. After graduating from Hicksville High School, Maron was drafted by the New York Mets in the 34th round of the 2009 MLB Draft. Ironically, he grew up a Mets fan, so he says he relishes the opportunity to play for his favorite team. “It’s a dream […]
As the eternal optimist I am when it comes to the Mets, I’m not giving up hope until the team is mathematically eliminated. Even with a Carlos Beltran trade looming, who knows? The team can get hot. They gutted out two clutch wins in Cincinnati so far and can make a statement with two more. Now that it’s late July, catching the Phillies is a long shot. The Mets are 13.5 games behind Philadelphia and […]
Recently, many professional athletes have made communicating via Facebook and Twitter part of their daily routines. While some of these athletes are known for being controversial, others, like Justin Turner of the Mets, do it for the fans. “I just enjoy doing it and getting the fans involved and trying to get them a little bit of perspective on what goes on from our side of things,” said Turner. Turner informs fans of the on […]
With the trade deadline fast approaching, the Mets still appear uncertain about whether they’ll be buyers or sellers. Eventually, they’ll have to make a decision, and if they wind up being sellers, they possess several risky trade targets—possibly too risky to be thought of as rental players. The first of course is Jose Reyes. Though Sandy Alderson has claimed it’s unlikely that the Mets trade Reyes, he may reconsider if the Mets fall wildly out […]
If the Mets could only keep one of their young superstars to be the face of the franchise for the next decade, would you choose Jose Reyes or David Wright? This is a very difficult question since each comes with a certain price tag and skillset. In a perfect world, the Mets will be able to sign both players long-term—Reyes this offseason and Wright next offseason—in an attempt to keep two of the organization’s best […]
