SCORE: San Diego 2, Mets 1, at Citi Field. RECORD: 2-1. SUMMARY: What, you expected this to last forever? When you pitch you always have a chance to win. When you don’t hit, that chance is negated. The Mets wasted a solid outing from Dillon Gee in suffering their first loss of the season today by the Padres. This coming after the Mets outscored the Padres, 19-6 in their first two games. “Dillon pitched well, we just weren’t [...]
I arrived at Citi Field last night as any eager Met fan after an impressive Opening Day win. But there was one problem: It was absolutely freezing! That hasn’t stopped me before, but based on the wind, I had a feeling I was in store for a low-scoring game. I even turned to my buddy before the game and told him to look at how quickly the flags on the top of the stadium were [...]
ESPN New York’s Mark Simon got a chance to talk to Mets third base coach Tim Teufel, and the two of them discussed the team’s infield defense. I highlighted what Teufel had to say about some of the Mets infielders, but you should check out the entire article here. UZR & Defensive Metrics “I embrace them. Any time we can use measurements to help us in our coaching, I’m willing to look at it. I [...]
There is a conspiracy theory everywhere you look. I read one suggesting the Mets made David Wright captain to divert attention away from the field, where they are projected to be bad. Very bad. Smokescreens like that never work. Besides, Mets fans are like children and dogs in a way, after awhile, they know when they’re getting duped.C’mon. Are you serious? How long do you think that will last? With virtually no hope given to the Mets [...]
There must be times Mets manager Terry Collins sits in his office with the door shut, puts his head in his head and wonders how he is going to handle his team. There are probably times he thinks retirement might not be such a bad thing. In most camps, positions and batting orders are set a week from Opening Day. That isn’t the case with the Mets, where Collins is still juggling his options with [...]
The worst-case scenario seems imminent for the Mets. They faced a myriad of pitching questions entering spring training, including: Johan Santana’s availability after shoulder surgery; Dillon Gee coming off surgery to repair an injury to his shoulder; and injury-prone Shaun Marcum. All three have been answered in the negative. One would think a free agent would report to camp in shape, but Marcum didn’t and insisted a long-tossing program was what it took instead of [...]
Mets GM Sandy Alderson was a guest of Mark Hale and Mike Vaccaro of the New York Post on their podcast today, and he had some interesting things to say about a variety of Mets topics. At one point, Hale brought up the possibility of signing Ike Davis to an extension and buying out his arbitration years, similar to the extension the Mets completed last spring with left-hander Jonathon Niese. “We’re always looking at our [...]
I spent last week on Lanai, a beautiful and remote Hawaiian Island. Sports, for the most part, was far from my mind. To say that is a rarity for me, is a major understatement. Still weeks from Opening Day, I considered it an opportunity to relax before the frenzy of another baseball season began. Wearing my Ike Davis shirt the last morning, I was approached by an individual asking if I was an Ike Davis’ [...]
Good Saturday morning. A little talk in the clubhouse about Team USA losing last night to Mexico. The operative word being “little.’’ I’ve only been here a few days, but trust me on this one, after doing 20 some Spring Trainings the days are usually all alike. We’re usually in the clubhouse by 7:45 in the morning, sometimes earlier depending on where the game is that day. The first thing most players do is head [...]
