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!

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 […]

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

 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. […]

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 […]

Pelfrey Cares, We’re Loving Sean Green, They Make How Much?

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Metsmerized Today! Mike Pelfrey got his clock rung yesterday in Pittsburgh in what he called the worst start in his career. Jerry Manuel agreed with that assessment and said, “Yeah, I would have to say Pelfrey was pretty bad.” Pelfrey actually had a pair of tickets to […]

Mets Can’t Afford A June Swoon

As the calendar changes from May to June, the Mets find themselves a half game behind the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League East.  They have managed to stay at or near the top of the division despite the fact that the Mets have become the walking wounded.  In 2006, it was the month of […]

Game Summary Mets win with a walk off! Game started off a pitching dual, very unlikely I know, but there was no hits for either team till the third, and no runs till the fourth. Mets were able to get the game tied and keep the game tied at 1-1 into extra innings. Omir Santos […]
