The Mets may have just lost Gary Sheffield to the disabled list after he pulled up lame trying to chase down a Yunel Escobar double. Sheffield caught up with the ball, flipped it to Angel Pagan, and grabbed his right leg in pain. After a long injury delay, he was escorted off the field by the trainer and replaced by Jeremy Reed. The Mets will most likely be without Sheffield for a significant amount of [...]
Mets First Half MVP Griffin – Gary Sheffield, most homers and has been a huge part of team Russell Z – Johan Santana Satish – David Wright – I was reluctant to choose Wright because it seemed as if he didn’t do much this year, but he does deserve some credit for his new-found ability as a leadoff hitter. (His OBP is .410 and he has 20 steals!) Greg P – Gary Sheffield - Who would [...]
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 right opportunity and price. Baseball analysts (notably ESPN) have been saying that it is a buyers market (for trades) this [...]
Earlier this afternoon we posted the following on our site… Earth to Sheffield, earth to Sheffield, can you read me? You would think that with Beltran going on the DL, it would open up even more playing time for right fielder Gary Sheffield. Especially when you consider that he is now our active homerun leader, and only true power source. So why has he yet to take the field since Beltran hit the skids? “I’ve [...]
Game Summary The Mets lost another one of those games that could have easily been a win for them if not for shooting blanks whenever they needed a timely hit. The Orioles outscored them 6-4 despite a 12 hit attack from the Mets offense. Game Recap Tim Redding, making his sixth start of the season started off solid but in the end he was charged with four runs on seven hits in 5-1/3 innings, including a [...]
I just read a quote from Gary Sheffield on Newsday.com. According to Sheff “it takes more than 25 guys to win a world championship”, he should know, he’s been there. I pretty much agree with Sheffield’s statement. Watching last night’s game, you could tell Sheff was hurting, but he put himself out there, and played his best. I wish we could say the same about this Met team. No excuses here. In Omar Minaya’s opinion, everyone [...]
We have a special treat for you this morning. Our friends over at Bugs and Cranks, had an opportunity to interview former Mets reliever and one of the heroes of the 1969 Mets, Ron Taylor. Taylor recorded nine wins and set a then-team record 13 saves for the ‘69 Metropolitans, the first of three consecutive seasons Taylor accomplished the feat. And despite solid regular season numbers, Taylor was at his best on the biggest stage – [...]

Gary Sheffield is hitting .362 with 4 homeruns and 15 RBI’s this month. K-Rod has been incredible this month with a perfect 9 for 9 in saves, a win, and a 0.00 ERA!
