2010 pointed out the Mets lack of a solid overall bench, and the mismanagement of some call ups and how they were used is also a major area of concern for me. Jesus Feliciano cannot successfully be the fifth outfielder for the Mets. His lack of pop or any kind of doubles power makes him a decent defensive outfielder. Keeping him on the bench instead of a defensive wizard or a great hitter is stupid. [...]
The Mets so far have had one of the best seasons of any team in Major League Baseball…seriously. I know you must think Spector’s finally lost it. Follow me on this one. The Mets this season have fielded about 15 players who have actually contributed – a far cry from the normal 25 man roster. Let’s reminisce and go back to early Spring – Port St. Lucie – when hope was abundant – when we [...]
Five weeks after crashing into a wall and suffering a concussion, Mets left fielder Jason Bay is going to begin his rehab and resume working out. He is unsure about how long it’s going to take, but he expects to return this season and wants to play, even if it’s only for the final week of the season. Here is a video of Jason Bay talking to reporters on Friday courtesy of ESPN New York. Obviously, Bay’s [...]
Before I begin, I want to first clarify that I was happy when the Mets signed Jason Bay in the offseason. I would have preferred a similar type deal to the one that the Red Sox offered of two years with a team option, but I realized that the Mets had to overpay to get him to play in Flushing rather than in Beirut. One of the things that I felt made the deal less [...]
In a post by Andy McCullough on NJ.com, he writes that Jerry Manuel does not expect Jason bay to return this season. The reports the manager says he sees do not offer much hope. Jerry Manuel indicated on Friday he does not expect to see outfielder Jason Bay return to the playing field this year. Bay, Manuel said, continues to suffer from concussive symptoms and has yet to resume baseball activity. So Manuel is not [...]
In Doug’s Dugout today we discuss, Anger,the disliked trio of Oliver Perez, Luis Castillo, and Carlos Beltran, and Packing Materials. If you are an avid Mets fan you should be angry today. Seething actually. Angry your GM, Omar Minaya waved the White Flag at the trading deadline; a team with numerous holes couldn’t fill any of them? (Maybe he was in a cave and didn’t see what the rest of his division rivals did at [...]
How good it feels to be home. Jonathon Niese went to the mound today and pitched six solid innings, getting out of trouble consistently and received plenty of run support as the Mets beat the Cardinals 8-2 Game Notes Jonathon Niese went to the mound today and provided the Mets with some quality pitching to kick-off their trip home. Niese went gave up one run in six innings on seven hits with two walks and [...]
It just keeps getting better and better. Hat Tip To Seven Train To Shea. So as we step into this crucial home stand, we must now do it without Jason Bay. However some people may feel this is more of a blessing than a curse. Bay has not lived up to expectations at all this year and it will be interesting to see how the team reacts without him. I can only hope he gets [...]
The Mets offense goes back to being silent as they lose game three of the series, 3-2 in the thirteenth inning on a James Loney walk-off homerun. The game became a battle of the bullpens as both pitchers only went five innings each but the game ends with James Loney, who hit his first career walk-off homer off of Oliver Perez in the 13th inning. Game Summary Mike Pelfrey continues to have rough starts as [...]
Great pitching, timely hitting, and great defense, all added up to a much needed 6-1 win over the Dodgers last night. It snapped a streak of 13 straight games in which the Mets only scored four runs or fewer. Game Notes Johan Santana (8-5) was brilliant again. Last night he pitched seven innings and allowed one run on five hits with one walk and four strikeouts. Over his last five starts, he has been lights out [...]
