The Ballad of Oliver and John

An article by posted on May 12, 2010 0 Comments

A few weeks ago, I suggested that the Mets pitching staff’s overperformance could result in a hat-tipping to Dan Warthen, who may be deceivingly quiet. By “deceiving,” I mean he is not a flashy pitching coach, people rarely ever heard of him before he came to the Mets although he does have a bit of […]

In a game that was looking like the Nationals would take it, the Mets worked around a bad outing from Jon Niese to stage an 8th inning comeback and win 8-6 Game Notes Jonathon Niese went out today, and was in trouble from the get-go. He would only finish the day going 4 1/3 innings, […]

In another time, perhaps 50 years from now, the Mets will get the opportunity to tear down Citifield, and build a new stadium for their fans and team.

A Stunning Look Into The Mets’ Offensive Woes

An article by posted on May 11, 2010 0 Comments

There are many question marks surrounding the Mets’ offense this season. Why isn’t Jose Reyes hitting? Why is David Wright striking out so much? Why can’t Jason Bay get a clutch hit? Where did Jeff Francoeur’s bat disappear to? Why isn’t Luis Castillo on crutches yet? It’s enough to make a Mets fan go crazy […]

There’s Something Very Phishy About This Post

I wanted to post something before the game and I had a choice to either write something about the trash at Citi Field or some non Mets news that smelled very Phishy. What a choice, huh? I decided to go with the latter, but before I do, I wanted to thank our friends at the uber-cool Real Dirty Mets […]

An article by posted on May 11, 2010 0 Comments

It’s safe to say that David Wright has been in a real rut at the plate as of late. He’s back to pressing at the plate, his swing is way off kilter, and he’s even letting his emotions get the best of him. On the surface, you look at Wright’s numbers on the season and there’s […]

Earlier today, Joe D. posted a blog saying that 1B/OF Chris Carter is very close to joining the Mets. In it he wrote, With the Mets’ continuing reluctance to take on additional payroll, they find themselves in the very fortunate (and envious) position of tapping into their minor league system for help that appears to […]

Time To Give Oliver Perez His Walking Papers

An article by posted on May 10, 2010 0 Comments

Oliver Perez took the mound today against the National League’s best starter, Tim Lincecum. Sometimes in a matchup like this, you’ll see some mediocre pitchers unfortunate enough to be in this matchup, at least elevate their performance somewhat. That wouldn’t be the case for Ollie as he delivered one of his worst performances of the […]

After another week of futility for Gary Matthews Jr, Frank Catalanotto and Oliver Perez, it occurs to me that with Memorial Day fast approaching, the time for the Mets to makes some significant changes to the complexion of their roster has arrived.
