Welcome To [Insert Name Here] Stadium

An article by posted on August 26, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

No Johan, No Win; Marlins Defeat Mets 2-1

On a night when Johan Santana was supposed to take the mound, Nelson Figueroa stepped into his shoes.  The rest of the team paid tribute to Johan by doing what they do best in his starts; not scoring.  They played a close game, but ultimately fell a run short, dropping the opener of the nine-game […]

As if the news that Jeff Francoeur tore a ligament in his thumb after making a spectacular catch yesterday weren’t bad enough, Jerry Manuel just announced during the post game conference that Johan Santana has been experiencing “some discomfort” in his left pitching elbow. Due to this, Santana will not make his start tomorrow against […]

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 […]

Including today’s game with the Phillies, the Mets have now played 81 games.  They’ve reached the midway point of the season battered and bruised, but still breathing.  Their record stands at 39-42, leaving them four games behind first place Philadelphia.  Somehow, they’ve managed to stay competitive in the standings while occasionally looking pathetic on the […]

We’re “This Close” To Blowing The Whole Thing Up

An article by posted on July 1, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

The Mets have been socked with too many injuries and a fair share of adversity so far this season. When that happens, it becomes so hard to spot some of the good things that have also emerged out of all the drama and upheaval. One such positive has been the outstanding pitching of Livan Hernandez. Who could […]

Brian Stokes has been missing since April 28th and none seems to know why he hasn’t been seen in a game since then. When last seen, Stokes was wearing his home uniform and had tossed 1.2 scoreless innings against the Marlins. He can easily be identified by his 0.00 ERA. Stokes is known to brandish a 98 […]
