After Gary Sheffield was nailed at the plate, at what he assumed was a home run by Daniel Murphy on Thursday night-assumed being the operative word, it might behoove all of the Mets to bust it on balls that carom off the quirky Citi Field walls. To be a home run, or not to be a home run. That is the question, that only television cameras can address. Yes, the Mets are five-for-five on the [...]
I have to say that I was rather disappointed with this road trip. I know! I know! They lost one-fourth of their roster. Still, I feel the Mets should’ve really gotten on a winning streak here. They did well against the San Francisco Giants. I’ll take three out of four from them. They were up against a Dodgers team that was without Manny Ramirez. The Mets beat themselves during that series. There was no reason [...]
Earlie today Mets manager Jerry Manuel was a guest on Mike Francesa’s radio show. There were some interesting things said by Manuel. Daniel Murphy: Manuel pretty much said that the Daniel Murphy outfield experiment is dead and over with. Murphy will have the next 4 games to prove himself a capable first baseman, otherwise Murph will not be an everyday player. Also sounds like Murphy will not be getting a lot of at bats against [...]
Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post, reported on Jerry Manuel’s interview on WFAN with Mike Francesa. During his appearance, Manuel said that Dan Murphy will start at first base tonight against the Dodgers. Daniel Murphy will start at first base for the Mets tonight against the Dodgers, and Jerry Manuel said the second-year player needs to produce there to stay in the lineup. With Carlos Delgado out, Manuel is using Gary Sheffield regularly in the [...]
The Mets committed a comedy of errors last night but not many bleary-eyed fans were laughing. If you were dedicated (crazy) enough to last past 2:30 in the morning, you were treated to arguably the worse 11th inning in team history. First, Ryan Church misses third base on a Angel Pagan double and the go-ahead run is transformed into an excruciating out. Moreover, Jerry Manuel does not protect his player by contesting the call and [...]
I’m not ready to say it’s time to trade up on Jerry Manuel, but lets just say I’m not his biggest supporter lately. Has anyone else noticde how he barely gets a chuckle whenever he makes a little joke or delivers a sarcastic response to a reporter, during the post game pressers lately? Not long ago, he would bring the house down after each game, but not anymore. The comments on this site regarding Manuel, has [...]
Jerry Manuel was asked a great question during the post game presser. “Will your team come to regret these Johan Santana losses in September?” “There will probably come a time,” Mets manager Jerry Manuel said. “There will probably come a point where you’ll think, ‘Wow, we missed a lot of opportunities with Johan.’” Ya think??? Johan Santana deserves better than this. He deserved a better effort from his teammates and a better effort from his [...]
Mets manager Jerry Manuel was suspended one game and fined an undisclosed amount for “his aggressive arguing and inappropriate contact” with umpire Bill Welke during Thursday’s game against the Phillies. Manuel will serve his suspension Saturday afternoon against the Pirates. Bench coach Sandy Alomar, will manage today’s game. The worst part of this is that Manuel was right and Welke was wrong… it was the third bad call that went against the Mets in that game. [...]
The Mets have announced that tonight’s game will be played according to WFAN. Jerry Manuel was a guest this afternoon of Mike Francesa on WFAN. On Santana – If his turn would not have come up at bat, he would have started the eight inning. When asked about the poor run support for Johan Santana, Manuel said he believes it all evens out and that when he doesn’t have a good day we’ll probably win [...]
