Game Summary Wow, one of the best games of the year! The Mets were able to ride high on the strength of three homeruns and Santana’s seven innings pitched to win game one against the Phils 6-5. Pitching Johan Santana had a decent start only giving up one hit through the first three innings. He had trouble […]

Wow, K-Rod Feels Great and Wants To Close Today!

An article by posted on May 24, 2009 0 Comments

This morning I voiced my concerns about assuming that K-Rod could be done for weeks and even months. I said to leave the diagnosing to the professionals and cited my my own experiences with people who suffered back spasms like K-Rod and were back at work in a few days. I urged everyone to just be […]

How Long Will K-Rod Be Out?

An article by posted on May 24, 2009 0 Comments

The short answer is, nobody knows. I’ve read a half dozen articles today regarding Frankie Rodriguez, and while a couple of them are painting a gloom and doom scenario, I say leave the diagnosing to the professionals and keep hope alive. I know many a person who had severe back spasms that prevented them from walking or even […]

Everyone Pray for Frankie

An article by posted on May 23, 2009 0 Comments

The unusual absence of our star closer had me concerned during the game. They spanned the bullpen with the cameras during the 9th inning as JJ Putz was on the mound, and Frankie was no where to be found. After the win, we waited for Jerry Manuel’s press conference because we knew someone would ask him […]

Lincecum, Schmincecum… That’s all the Mets had to say as they completed their biggest comeback of the season and beat the Giants 8-6 on Friday night. It was a game that featured many layers of clutch hitting, clutch baserunning, clutch fielding and a little bit of luck on this very Freaky Friday. Livan Hernandez started and […]

Billy Wagner is scheduled to be back in the bullpen by August. If he’s even close to his old self, Jerry Manuel might have the luxury of having three closers — albeit three very high-priced closers, but three closers.

Is It Time To Shea Goodbye To Omar?

An article by posted on April 28, 2009 0 Comments

After last weeks four game losing streak I started to observe our own chat room as well as other Met chat rooms and MLB blogs and some are blaming Omar Minaya for the Mets miserable start this year.  He didn’t sign the big free agents that were available  this past off-season.  Last year he signed […]

Mets Bullpen Serves Notice To NL

An article by posted on April 7, 2009 0 Comments

When was the last time a Mets starter left the game in the middle of the sixth inning, handed the ball to the bullpen to protect a one run lead, and still come out out with a win? Are you drawing a blank? Let’s just agree that it’s been a long time. The Mets bullpen, masterfully […]

Game Recap: Mets 2 – Reds 1

An article by posted on April 6, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets opened a new season with a 2-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds today in a rain soaked Great American Ballpark. Johan Santana who started the game got in trouble a couple of times, but for the most part delivered a solid performance today.  He pitched 5.2 innings and allowed just a run on […]

K-Rod 3 Years $37MM vs. Ollie 3 Years $36MM

An article by posted on February 4, 2009

Lost in the excitement of the Oliver Perez signing, is a very underreported yet very interesting fact. Most of us agree that the Mets overpaid to get the Oliver Perez deal done. It was a move I certainly won’t argue with. But, now that the dust has settled, it’s become apparent to me that we […]
