The easiest decision the Mets have to make this year is staring them right in the face: Cut Gary Sheffield. As soon as he walks into the Mets club house today have equipment man Charlie Samuels greet him at his locker with a surplus of Hefty bags to stuff his belongings into. He came with baggage let him leave with garbage bags. The fact that he asked Omar Minaya for a contract extension for 2010 […]
It was only a matter of time until the Gary Sheffield story, as it pertains to the Mets, would take a turn for the ugly. However, I’m hanging this on Omar Mianay and not Gary Sheffield. Here is the latest… SI.com’s Jon Heyman tweeted that the Giants were the team that claimed Gary Sheffield and prompted the Mets to pull him back. Many others had speculated that the mystery team was the Marlins. In a post to […]
According to Steve Popper of the Bergen Record, citing an unnamed Mets player, Gary Sheffield has been released from the team. This would certainly be a blow to the team for the remainder of the season, as Sheffield was one of very few legitimate Major League bats in the Mets lineup. Originally signed to be a back up to Daniel Murphy and Ryan Church in the corner outfield positions, Sheffield soon found himself in the lineup just […]
For the second straight game, the Mets were forced to play without any of their core players and this time it really showed as they were annihilated by the Giants 10-1. It was the Mets’ 12th loss in their last 18 games, and things are really starting to go downhill fast. Livan Hernandez started and he was absolutely torched by the Giants batters who were teeing off on him like it was batting practice. He […]
If you were watching today’s game when Gary Sheffield left the bases with apparent leg stiffness, Gary and Ron were reciting the litany of Met injuries, and having trouble remembering all of them. That got me wondering who has not been injured out of the Opening Day roster. Take a look: Out of the Opening Day lineup, only Wright and Murphy have never been injured. Castillo is listed because we don’t have enough information on […]
According to Steve Popper of the Bergen Record, Carlos Beltran took batting practice today on the field for about twenty minutes. Popper said that Beltran appeared to be “fine”. He reports that Beltran hit a ball hard enough to reach the Pepsi Porch, which is definitely encouraging. He even goes as far as saying that he was surprised that Beltran was not in the lineup tonight. Bart Hubbuch echoed a similar report, however he noticed […]
According to our friend Adam Rubin in his Daily News blog, Gary Sheffield has become the latest Mets player to be placed on the disabled list. He will be replaced on the Mets roster by tonight’s starting pitcher, Jonathon Niese. Sheffield hadn’t played since the July 18 game against the Braves, when he was taken out of the game with a leg cramp after chasing a base hit in left field. At the time, Sheffield […]
We can beat a dead horse all day long about how bad and disappointing the 2009 Mets have become, and how we’re going to have to endure a few months of meaningless baseball now that all hope for the playoffs is basically lost. So instead of beating the horse, I’m just going to point out a few things I noticed when perusing stats last night (through Sunday’s games)….. The Mets have 53 home runs, worst […]
For the first time in six years, the Mets began the second half of the season with a loss, falling a season-low 7 1/2 games behind the division leading Phillies. As if that wasn’t enough, last night the Mets were handed their second straight loss after the break, their eighth shutout of the season, and their fourth shutout in the last nine games. Oh, did I mention that they broke their own season-low record from just […]
