When the Mets ended the 2009 season, they had three main goals on the agenda; revamp the bullpen, sign a top of the rotation pitcher, and get a power bat to play leftfield, bat cleanup and give David Wright protection. Obviously, we never got the starting pitcher, it’s still too early to tell if the bullpen has been fixed (recent struggles would point to no), but the Mets did manage to sign Jason Bay after a […]
Jason Bay is a guess hitter because he has been streaky his entire career. So far, his short tenure with the Mets has been one wrong answer after another. Take the seventh inning of Sunday’s fifth straight Mets loss – Please. With the annoying Marlins about to break out a four-pack of brooms, the Mets rallied from a 7-0 deficit to draw within one crooked number, thanks to a huge Alex Cora two-run double (more […]
It sure is fun to watch games like last night or Friday and Saturday’s finishes against the Giants, or even the way the team battled back on Sunday against Tim Lincecum. But some of the Mets are striking out at an alarming rate (ahem, David Wright…ahem, Jason Bay). Even Ike Davis, who has been the spark that fired up the team the past few weeks, has 19 strikeouts in 66 at-bats. I heard Keith Hernandez […]
Many were worried about Jason bay being able to hit at Citi Field after the Mets signed him. Some said that Citi Field wasn’t his type of park or that he wasn’t the kind of player who could succeed in Citi Field. Just over five weeks into the season, Bay is batting .239 this season with just a .376 slugging percentage. Not exactly what the Mets were hoping for, but it’s still early. However, it seems that […]
Talk about a bummer of a road trip… The only good part of it was yesterday’s get-away day. I’m totally excited about the Mets coming home to begin weekend series against the San Francisco Giants, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have some inhibitions about Mike Pelfrey and Johan Santana based on their last poor starts. It’s nothing that a 1-2-3 first inning wont cure though. My biggest concern going into tonight […]
When Jason Bay signed his four-year, $66 million contract to play left field for the Mets, it was believed that he would provide the booming bat needed by the Mets that was sorely missed last season. After all, Daniel Murphy led the team with a measly 12 home runs, while Bay hit three times that amount with the Boston Red Sox. The Mets have now played one full month of baseball. After their first 28 […]
After 68 at-bats and 20 games without a homerun to start his Mets’ career, Jason Bay hit his first homer of the year yesterday, blasting a solo shot in the Mets’ 4-0, Game 1 win over the Dodgers at Citi Field. Since Jose Reyes has been inserted in the three spot, Jason Bay is swatting the ball just as Jerry Manuel predicted. Here is Bay as he crushes one over the left-center-field wall. Enjoy the video […]
The pitching this young season has been great. I don’t think that anyone can honestly say they thought the pitchers, be it the rotation or the bullpen would perform the way they have so far. Every expert said that the Mets couldn’t contend in 2010 because of the starting pitching after Johan but the starters, especially Mike Pelfrey have proven those experts wrong. The pitchers have stepped up this season, now it’s time for the […]
Mets took game two of the series against the Braves winning 3-1 and reach .500 on the season. Game Notes Jonathon Niese pitched another great 5 1/3 innings of baseball. He fell into some deep bases loaded trouble in the first inning but was able to fight his way out of it. Niese allowed five hits, walked a season high five batters while striking out six, and only allowed one run for another great outing […]
