The Mets are proving that winning baseball isn’t just measured by pure numbers such as batting averages or home runs or even low walk totals. Winning baseball is a mishmash of that along with solid clutch playing and a really big chaser of luck. Luck isn’t something the Mets are used to lately not to mention their fans. The start of the 2010 season was beginning to feel like a bad epilogue to 2009 as […]
The Mets won game two against the Cardinals 2-1 in 20 innings. It was the longest victory in franchise history. Game Notes Who would have expected Jamie Garcia, a no name pitcher, to go toe-to-toe with a two time Cy Young award winner like Johan Santana? But that’s how it was with both pitchers throwing a gem of a game. Santana was dealing with 9 strikeouts, no runs, 1 walk and only gave up 4 […]
All offseason we talked about what is best for our beloved Mets. What’s best as far as free agency. What’s best as far as who is managing. What’s best from the GM position. What’s best at each position. And even what’s best from ownership. We all have had our very candid and pointed opinions and we share them like no other fan in the league does. Baseball fans are some of the most knowledgeable and […]
I found it so laughable and typical that after almost an entire spring training without a peep from Jerry Manuel regarding Nelson Figueroa, Manuel chose yesterdays implosion on the mound from Figgy to reveal his intentions about the 35-year old right-hander. After a near perfect run this spring, you would think that Figueroa might have jeopardized his chances to secure a roster spot after allowing seven runs in 2 2/3 innings against the Marlins on Friday. Figgy called […]
We now return you to ‘As The World Turns‘… That should be what each return from a commercial on SNY and WPIX says this exhibition season… I am becoming more concerned as the Mets continue to have more questions than answers each day spring training continues. What drama… We should be getting closer to making cuts. Instead the questions are becoming more pronounced each day. At first base, if Daniel Murphy is starting, he’d better abandoned that more upright […]
In a new post to his blog, Adam Rubin of the Daily News, analyzes the Mets spring training battles and speculates on the potential Opening Day roster. Regarding the rotation, Adam believes that Jon Niese is still the front-runner to be the team’s fifth starter and writes, The smart money still has Jon Niese claiming the final slot in the rotation over Fernando Nieve, with Hisanori Takahashi only on the fringe of that race, despite the Japanese lefthander slated for a pair of Grapefruit […]
Update 2:05 PM: Kevin Burkhardt says from what he’s been told Takahashi is NOT a bullpen option because he’s not a power arm plus he struggles against lefties. He’s a Tom Glavine type that either makes the Met SP rotation or is gonna be sent to Buffalo as SP insurance. (hat tip to Sach) Original Post 1:52 PM According to David Waldstein of the NY Times , the Mets appear ready to sign left-hander Hisanori Takahashi […]
According to this report on MASN Sports, Japanese free agent Hisanori Takahashi has reportedly rejected deals from both the Mets and Orioles. The Mets had actually offered the reliever a Major League contract, but couldn’t reach an agreement on the dollars according to another report appearing on NPB Tracker. I’m a little surprised that the Mets continue to focus so much on the bullpen, especially after signing Chris Everts, Elmer Dessens, Ryota Igarashi, Kelvim Escobar and most recently […]
