Pelfrey, the $15 Million Man?

An article by posted on August 24, 2009 0 Comments

I recently wrote an article about the reasons why Derek Lowe would not have been a wise investment, paired with why Oliver Perez was the best possible option if the Mets wanted to sign a free agent. It doesn’t mean Perez was a good signing, it means Lowe for 60 mil/4 years would have been […]

The Mets played a heck of game and beat the Phillies 4-2 in the first of a four game series with the Phillies. I usually save me comments for the end of the recap, but I gotta tell you how impressed I was with the intensity of the Mets given their dismal situation.  They played […]

What Happened To Mike Pelfrey’s Strikeout Rate?

An article by posted on August 18, 2009 0 Comments

When Omar Minaya decided that Mike Pelfrey would slide into the number two spot in the rotation, many of us had raised eyebrows to say the least. Even though I would have rather seen Pelfrey hold down the fort at the bottom of the rotation I figured that maybe there was a slim chance that […]

On the day after David Wright was sent to the hospital with a concussion after experiencing a close encounter with a Matt Cain fastball, the Mets were able to give him a wonderful get-well present by defeating the Giants in walk-off style at sunny and hot Citi Field.  Daniel Murphy lined an RBI single with […]

This morning I will concede on a bet I made on Opening Day and pay up the $25 bucks I’ve lost. I bet my friend, a notorious Yankee fan, on who would have the better season… Our number two pitcher Mike Pelfrey or the Yankees number five pitcher Joba Chamberlain. The battle wasn’t even close. […]

The beards must grow on!  After the players vowed not to shave until the Mets reached the .500 mark, the team continued their inconsistent play since their five-game winning streak ended on Thursday, as they were defeated by the Diamondbacks by the final score of 5-2.  The loss dropped the Mets 7½ games behind the […]

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 […]

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 […]
