An article by posted on June 6, 2011 0 Comments

I like what Collins did in finally moving Bay down in the order.  I know it was made easier because guys like Murphy, Turner and Pagan are hitting so well right now.  But, it was a much deserved demotion for Jason who has not been the player we thought we were signing.  WIth Bay out […]

Collins Says Reyes Isn’t Moving Anywhere

An article by posted on June 5, 2011 0 Comments

I piqued your curiosity didn’t I? Collins actually did say that, but he wasn’t referring to the trade deadline – he was responding to a question about moving Jose Reyes from the leadoff spot to batting third in the lineup. As ESPN pointed out last night, there are plenty of reasons why some people look […]

I understand that Jason Bay had a scheduled day off yesterday. But with Reyes having to leave for a family emergency how does that not change the plans??? Can someone please explain this to me because I feel like that was a Jerry Manuel move yesterday!  That kind of stuff is a huge pet peeve of mine, and here’s why […]

Is It Time To Move Pagan Back To Top Of The Order?

An article by posted on May 30, 2011 0 Comments

Since coming off the disabled list, Angel Pagan has been a hitting machine. With his hot return, it begs the question of whether Terry Collins should re-insert Pagan into the No. 2 spot in the lineup. As Pagan regains his stroke, Justin Turner continues handling the bat well, which is ideal for a No. 2 […]

From Left Field: Not The Injury Bug Again

An article by posted on May 5, 2011 0 Comments

Shades of the 2009 Mets are already apparent here this season. Though that team was more talented on paper, it was ravaged by the injury bug which gave Jerry Manuel very little to work with on a day-to-day basis. Well, it seems that injuries already have played a role this season. Last year’s breakout player, […]

Book Review: Moneyball – An Incredible, Revolutionary Masterpiece

Moneyball tells the fascinating tale of Billy Beane’s ingenious use of statistical analysis in order to assemble a winning ballclub without the luxury of a large payroll. Through statistics such as OBP, SLG, and a slew of other stats, Beane was able to snatch ballplayers with “hidden virtues” up for a song, creating a team on a $35 […]

What A Difference A Bay Can Make

An article by posted on April 22, 2011 0 Comments

David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Jason Bay and Ike Davis together at last in the middle of the order.  I know it is only one game, but inserting Bay into the middle of that lineup really solidifies the middle of the batting order.  Jason did not tear the cover off the ball in his first game back, but just his […]
