Yesterday I posted a widely controversial blog about my disdain over much of the internet reaction to the Jeff Francoeur trade on Wednesday night. The post was intended to characterize the stark differences between internet savvy Mets fans and those who follow the team in more traditional ways. It was also my own personal reaction to the hate-fest that took place that evening on Facebook and mostly Twitter. Surely, no Mets player who gives 110% deserves the barrage of […]
During last night’s Mets broadcast, I thought the best part of a dismal game was when Gary, Keith and Ron found themselves stumbling for words when the results of the Toyota Text Poll was revealed. Here is a screen shot courtesy of Amazin Avenue. Keith Hernandez spoke out first and said “Hmmm”. Gary Cohen and Ron Darling were a little more enlightening, but still struggled to decipher the results. And even Kevin Burkhardt found it necessary to jump in and try to explain what […]
Here is a video courtesy of Adam Rubin and ESPN New York on Jeff Francoeur reacting to the trade. Francoeur had no hard feelings and in fact was grateful to the Mets for sending him to a team that will be heading to the Post Season. Obviously, the Mets see that I don’t fit in the plans next year here. They’re giving me an opportunity and taking care of me, and for that I can forever […]
In the closest game that the Mets have played in recent weeks, Mike Pelfrey pitched an eight inning gem and after Bobby Parnell got into trouble, Hisanori Takahashi closed the door and the Mets won 2-1. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey pitched a gem today, going eight innings giving up six hits and two walks and striking out four. Pelf was great today, after a long first inning buckled down and started retiring batters effectively and […]
I read a solid article entitled “What If Billy Wagner Never Got Hurt?” by Brian Joura of Mets 360. Brian not only contemplates what could have been in the second half of the 2008 season, but also what might have transpired if the Mets signed an outfielder instead of K-Rod later that offseason. We have seen how good Wagner has been this season. If Wagner had not been injured in 2008, the Mets probably have […]
The Mets take the series opener against the Astros, 3-1. The last time the Mets took the road opener, was back on June 18th against the Yankees. Almost two months ago. Jon Niese had another great start but walks away with a no decision. The offense supplied some late inning support to win the game. The bullpen did their job for two shutout innings. Mets get back to .500 on the season. Game Summary Jon […]
Joe Posnanski answered a question on his blog a few days back about who is the worst everyday player in baseball for 2010. “A friend and I have a bet – I say Rony Cedeno, he says Chone Figgins. I know Yuni was your choice at one point last year, can you give us an update and settle a bet?” His judgment of “The Worst Everyday Player in Baseball” goes by these qualities… (1) Poor […]
The Mets take game two against the Phillies in a tight 1-0 win. Johan Santana had a great start not giving up any runs, and not allowing a hit for the first five and two-third innings. Frankie Rodriguez pitched five outs to get his twenty fourth save and win it for the Mets. Jeff Francoeur supplied the only Mets run in the seventh with a solo homerun. This the Mets first nine innings 1-0 win […]
Almost as predictable as the Mets falling short in the wins column these days is the projected fall-out that occurs after each loss. Every beat writer or sports news outlet is trying to find the scapegoat. I find that laughable, since I believe Jerry Manuel, Howard Johnson or Omar Minaya are symptoms of a larger problem. I can’t believe that letting any of those guys go will help in the short or long term, except […]
