As we all sit back and wait for Omar Minaya to make that blockbuster trade or signing, only to see him sign more mediocre players, reality is starting to set in. If this hot stove pattern continues — and I’m sorry, Minaya has given us no reason to believe otherwise – the Mets in 2010 could easily be a fourth place team, and maybe even fifth. First of all, the Phillies are not exactly going […]
As the Mets continue their three game series against the Marlins in Florida, I decided to do a little research of past Marlins/Dolphins stadiums. Dolphin Stadium, as most of us are use to calling the home of the Marlins and Dolphins, was originated in 1984 and was called that until 1987. Later in 1987 it was changed to the name Joe Robbie Stadium. In 1990, 50% of the stadium was bought out to bring baseball […]
For as bad as the Mets have looked at times this season (and I have advocated blowing up the team or just not paying attention to them anymore), it’s almost miraculous that they are not worse than three games under .500 and 6 ½ games out of first place. When you think about the lousy starting pitching we’ve endured at times, the mental mistakes that seem to multiply, the injuries to most of the key […]
Sometimes desperate times make us think desperate thoughts. Last night as I watched Johan Santana serve up a change-up to Ryan Braun that, frankly, I could have hit, and then watch the ball and a bunch of Brewers bounce all over the field and across the plate four times, my disbelief turned into realism. I started to think, is Santana the ace he was in April and May or is this worst stretch of his […]
Game Summary Thanks to a solid performance by starting pitcher John Maine, the Mets took the rubber game of their weekend series with the Marlins and beat Florida 3-2. The Mets got some key hits in the Pitching John Maine broke out his new changeup and used it to stifle the Marlins bats today. In six innings pitched he allowed just 3 hits, 2 walks, and didn’t allow a run. He struck out 5 batters, […]
Game Summary The Mets (9-11) fell to the Florida Marlins (12-8) 7-4 due mostly in part to a Sean Green implosion and an inability to add runs late. Jorge Cantu tagged the Mets for two homeruns. Mets Pitching Livan Hernandez had a decent start and was able to keep the Mets in the game. He allowed just 2 earned runs in 5.1 innings pitched on 3 hits and 2 walks, while striking out 5 Marlins. He handed the bullpen the lead […]
We all need to take a deep breath, relax and step back for a moment. The season is two weeks old and already it appears many fans have given up on our Mets. Yes, this season has been frustrating so far. Yes, this team has failed to get the big hit when needed. We have carried over some of our bad habits from the last 2 heartbreaking seasons. We are still failing to come through […]
One of baseballs greatest charms is how unpredictable it can be at times. We spent an entire off season arguing and debating who out fifth starter would be. When Livan Hernandez was finally tabbed for the job, I’m sure that many of us weren’t entirely thrilled, but as Mets fans we accepted it just the same. Now, after one turn in the rotation, it’s Livan Hernandez who finally gave the Mets the length and endurance […]
The 4-0 Marlins beat the Mets 5-4 with a walk off hit in the ninth inning by Jorge Cantu off reliever Darren O’Day. You’re not going to win many games when you leave 14 runners on base, and that’s exactly what the Mets did. Maine started and other than letting up two solo homers to Hanley Ramirez and Dan Uggla, he had a good outing allowing just those two hits and a walk in five […]
