I asked this question the other day while on Twitter, with Jenrry Mejia in the bullpen, Nelson Figueroa in Philly, and no major league ready pitching prospects on call, who would be the Mets’ first choice to replace an injured or under-performing starter? Kelvim Escobar, Hisanori Takahashi and Fernando Nieve were the most popular answers I received. Unfortunately, Escobar may not comeback from his injury and even if he did, he signed on as a reliever, and […]
Sure, we’re all thrilled that the Mets continued their Opening Day dominance on Monday with a win over the Marlins to start the 2010 season. It was a very complete performance with Johan Santana, Fernando Nieve and K-Rod holding the Marlins to one run; and our hitters, starting with David Wright belting a first-inning two-run homer against our nemesis Josh Johnson, delivering enough runs to make it a rout. Newcomers Jason Bay, Gary Matthews Jr. […]
You may have noticed that I have not written much in recent weeks. It’s simply because I’ve had little to say. And as spring training winds down, I am left shocked and speechless, with my mouth wide open. It’s sad but true. I am extremely discouraged on the state of the 2010 Mets. All winter long I stuck up for the Mets. I jumped early on the Murphy bandwagon and called for fans to accept […]
Some pitchers just don’t have it. You can tell from the first inning you ever see them throw. Some pitchers look dominant from day one and besides some growing pains, you always feel like it will all click eventually. Then there is Mike Pelfrey. We have all heard about how filthy Big Pelf’s stuff is. How unhittable his “bowling ball sinker” can be, etc etc. So why isn’t he dominating after 80 ML starts? Why […]
While reading MetsBlog, I came across an interesting link in which Tim Dierkes of MLBTR compiled a pretty cool spreadsheet. Dierkes ranked this years projected opening day rotations based on how much each team has spent. It really is a unique way to look at things and I hope you visit them to see his entire list. Surprisingly, the Mets who are obviously in desperate need of pitching help, have spent the fourth most money in the Majors. Here […]
The 2010 season opener is just 6 days away for the Mets. In 6 days the Mets will stop playing Spring Training games and play games that really matter. This Spring hasn’t been a great one. Carlos Beltran didn’t make it to the field, Jose Reyes was sidelined for 3 weeks, and there’s still questions going into the season that have most Met fans worried about 2010 before it even starts. I know the numbers aren’t […]
Remember in the classic baseball movie Major League 2, when Charlie Sheen’s character, Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn, had the hilarious habit of naming and re-naming each of the pitches in his arsenal? Including the new pitch he was working on that spring? Maybe Mike Pelfrey should consider naming his pitches beginning with his sinker, which I now dub ”The Stinker”. Once again Mike Pelfrey took the mound for his scheduled start, and much like his other four spring […]
All offseason we talked about what is best for our beloved Mets. What’s best as far as free agency. What’s best as far as who is managing. What’s best from the GM position. What’s best at each position. And even what’s best from ownership. We all have had our very candid and pointed opinions and we share them like no other fan in the league does. Baseball fans are some of the most knowledgeable and […]
Nice interview in the NY Post this morning with former Met and SNY Analyst Bobby Ojeda. Q: Based on the inconsistency Mike Pelfrey, Oliver Perez and John Maine have shown this spring training, do you think the Mets made a mistake not picking up another starter this offseason? A: I would have agreed with that statement last year. But this year, I honestly believe Mike Pelfrey will be better after last year’s experience. John Maine […]
