Is The Timing Right For Fernando Martinez?

An article by posted on May 19, 2009 0 Comments

There’s a few stories out there today about how Ryan Church may be dangerously close to becoming a former Met. I’m not sure how to feel about that. One base running blunder should not be reason enough to get rid of someone and calling for his ouster. Would this even be a consideration if it […]

I took a look at David Wrights numbers this season and see how his splits looked since he was dropped from third in the batting order to fifth. These numbers do not reflect last nights game. Lets just ignore the one game where he batted cleanup and just compare his stats in the number three […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Johan

An article by posted on April 25, 2009 0 Comments

Once in a while, I have those days where in my gut I know that the Mets are going to lose. Once every fifth day, I feel really good about the game. With Johan Santana pitching, I know it will be a low-scoring affair (on both sides unfortunately). I think yesterday was the first game […]

Not too long ago, Mets fans were second-guessing the decision to sign Luis Castillo to such a long-term deal. But Castillo is off to an amazing start this year, beginning last night 4th in the league in hitting, and he continued his hot streak last night against the Cardinals.

Can The Mets Afford To Carry Marlon Anderson?

An article by posted on February 7, 2009

In 2007, Marlon Anderson parlayed a .319 average in just 60 at-bats into a two year deal worth $2.2 million dollars. Not bad for a bench player who had hit .231 in the first half of that season before being cut by the Dodgers and signed from the scrap heap by Omar Minaya. Last season, […]
