Pelfrey Shuts Down Rockies, Mets Win 4-0

The Big Pelf kept the Mets winning streak alive tonight as they won their fourth game in a row. Pelfrey pitched 6.1 shutout innings working himself out of bases loaded jams several times. Daniel Murphy has really stepped up for the team and scored the first run off of a Jeff Francoeur single in the second inning. In the […]

I Don’t Trust Omar Minaya Anymore

I’ve supported Omar Minaya ever since he first took the reins of the New York Mets after the 2004 season. He took an organization that was in complete disarray and put the Mets back on the map. He said that the Mets would be rebuilt and taken seriously, and he gave us his five year […]

Yet again, the Mets lose to the Nationals sinking even further with no help in site. Winning their second game in a row against the Mets, Washington held New York to one run and 4 hits. Obviously it doesn’t matter who we play because our team is so bruised and battered that even the healthy […]

Mets Shutout Again, Fall To Braves 11-0

The Mets went down to the Georgia and I guess the devil must have went down with them because that’s how gloomy things have been only two games into their second half of the season. Mike Pelfrey and the Mets handed the Braves an 11-0 win and in the process they fell to 8 1/2 […]

Time To Change the Channel

A thought occurred to me last night as the score reached 7-0 Dodgers—I don’t have to watch this crap if I don’t want to.  Not that there’s much on TV besides baseball during the summer except horrible reality shows and re-runs, but I’d rather see anything these days besides watching our Mets get trounced and […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! 6/28-7/5

An article by posted on July 6, 2009 0 Comments

So this week wasn’t good, and that’s a major understatement. A lot of Met fans, including myself, are really getting tired of watching this so-called Major League team try to play baseball. Any opposing pitcher seems to dominate them, and things are not looking good. However, there was one bright spot this week, and undoubtedly I have […]

Fantasy Focus: Mets Positional Analysis – Part I: The Good!

An article by posted on July 5, 2009 0 Comments

It’s been a brutal 4th of July weekend getting swept by the hated Phillies.  The Mets now sit below .500 for the season.  Clearly the team needs some help – either from the return of our injured stars or via trade – although it appears that the front office is still prudently waiting for the […]

Pelfrey Outduels Gallardo, Mets Edge Brewers 1-0

An article by posted on July 1, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets salvaged the final game of the series and avoided a second consecutive sweep thanks to starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey. The game looked like a colossal mismatch on paper as another makeshift Mets lineup took on one of the best starting pitchers in the game in Jovani Gallardo. Gallardo absolutely dominated the Mets and […]

Citi Field – Where Homeruns Go To Die

An article by posted on June 29, 2009 0 Comments

 I read an interesting article on ESPN by Tristan Cockcroft entitled Shea It Isn’t. The piece is well written and well researched and is a fair comparison of the two parks. One of the interesting parts of his article was the following chart which shows exactly which non-homers would have been homeruns at Shea Stadium. Hitter […]

In A Big Game, Only The Strong Survive

An article by posted on June 11, 2009 0 Comments

How bad did Jerry Manuel want last night’s clash with the Phillies? Bad enough to spend his closer’s remaining bullets, Frankie Rodriquez, in a tie game for two innings, no less. Who says games in June don’t have the intensity of September affairs? Unfortunately, the Mets could not counter the Phighting Phillies number one asset-guile. […]

Great Baseball Game, Big Pelf, Alex Cora, Omir Santos

I know that many of you are disappointed we couldn’t pull out a win last night against the Phillies. We were so close. Despite the loss it was a heck of a game and we have been treated to some great baseball in the last two games. The Phillies and Mets rivalry has blossomed to […]
