Chris asks…. Why are the Mets ignoring Cuban prospects? They showed no interest in Jose Abreu, Yoenis Cespedes or Yasiel Puig. They also passed on Jose Fernandez who was selected immediately after the Mets drafted Brandon Nimmo, and made no attempt to sign Aroldis Chapman. Who is in charge of Latin America scouting for the Mets and why are they ignoring one of the hottest international markets in baseball? Teddy replies… First of all, that […]
A lot of things can happen in 14 years. Children are born, people die, presidents are elected, and fads come and go. (Remember the Macarena?) But I can’t believe it was 14 years ago today that one of the most overlooked moments in Mets history took place. Yes, today is the 14th anniversary of when Todd “The Tank” Pratt went boom to lead the Mets past the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 1999 NLDS. I remember waking […]
In today’s ever changing world, the art form of music is extremely important. Classical Music calms us down, Hard Rock and Hip Hop can give us a feeling of angst as well as euphoria , Adult Contemporary can make us contemplative and this new pop//techno//Bieber style is just well….. CRAP ! But the type of music a ballplayer uses when he steps up to the plate or runs out to the mound is rather important as well. […]
Just days after being released by the New York Mets, pitcher Livan Hernandez was handed a $16,000 lawsuit, TMZ reports. The lawsuit, which was filed by a man named Luis Vizcaino, states that Livan had used him as his personal driver throughout the 2009 season for when he was in New York. According to the suit, Hernandez owes Vizcaino $7,500 for his services as a driver. The suit also alleges that the pitcher totaled Vizcaino’s […]
Get it? Okay, anyway. According to Espn.com, the Mets have announced that Billy Wagner has been activated from the disabled list. To make room for Wagner, the Mets have released pitcher Livan Hernandez. Hernandez was 7-8 with a 5.47 ERA. Hernandez started the year off strong, but since July 3rd at Philadelphia, he really hasn’t shown the Mets much. You know, the one thing I could never stand about him was how he never seemed to care […]
For the second straight game, the Mets were forced to play without any of their core players and this time it really showed as they were annihilated by the Giants 10-1. It was the Mets’ 12th loss in their last 18 games, and things are really starting to go downhill fast. Livan Hernandez started and he was absolutely torched by the Giants batters who were teeing off on him like it was batting practice. He […]
The five game winning streak that rejuvenated a fan base is now just a forgotten memory as the Mets lose their second straight tonight at Citi Field. The Diamondbacks took the first game of the series 3-2 after scoring the winning run on a wild pitch by Sean Green. Livan Hernandez started the game and delivered his third straight solid performance. Hernandez held the D-Backs to just two runs on four hits in six innings […]
This afternoon, the suddenly revitalized Mets launched a 13 hit attack against the Astros to beat them 8-3, and take the series two games to one. It was the second straight win for the Mets who have been fueled by the hot hitting of Angel Pagan and Luis Castillo, and clutch hitting of Jeff Francoeur. Even David Wright seems to be getting into the act. Livan Hernandez started the game and it looked like he wouldn’t survive the first […]
We can beat a dead horse all day long about how bad and disappointing the 2009 Mets have become, and how we’re going to have to endure a few months of meaningless baseball now that all hope for the playoffs is basically lost. So instead of beating the horse, I’m just going to point out a few things I noticed when perusing stats last night (through Sunday’s games)….. The Mets have 53 home runs, worst […]
