As we come to grips with the fact that hope will be the prevailing theme in 2011 and that basically we are playing the same hand we had last season minus Johan Santana, we will all have our patience tested. There’s a lot of things that need to go right where hope is concerned for the 2011 Mets. We hope Jason Bay shows up and performs at a level we all expected when we first [...]
Whether you see the 2011 Mets as team that is in rebuild mode or one only a few changes away from a playoff contender, one thing remains absolutely certain and that is the need to bolster the rotation with an effective and reliable starting pitcher. With the odds of landing Cliff Lee or Zach Grienke fading fast, and a barren free agent crop this hot stove season, our new GM Sandy Alderson will have to [...]
Before I begin this week’s post I apologize for my post last week on Omar Minaya and Roy Halladay. When writing my post last week I had no intention to hurt anyone or insult anyone’s nationality. I promise in the future to be more careful with my posts. This is not a post bashing Johan Santana. I know early on in the 2010 season I wrote that Santana was done and I admit I was wrong. [...]
Mike Pelfrey went seven and one third innings of quality baseball, and key offensive contributions from David Wright and clutch hitting from Ruben Tejada gave the Mets the win, 4-3 versus the Brewers. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey went seven and one third innings today, giving up three runs on five hits, walking four and striking out two. Pelfrey was wild today, throwing roughly half his pitches for strikes. Pelfrey gave up a long home run [...]
You can drive yourself crazy trying to figure out ways for the Mets to get out of this free-fall into oblivion and putting the organization back on the right track. The ideas and opinions are countless. I can’t really tell you what the Mets are gonna do, but I do have a list of things I hope they don’t do. Here are the first two of the ten worst things the Mets can do this [...]
According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, Mike Pelfrey is open to a contract extension with the Mets. “I would be interested,” Pelfrey said about the possibility of a contract extension. “They’d have to bring it up, but I’m sure we’ll explore it. I’m definitely open to it.” Pelfrey is still under Mets control until 2014 and is arbitration eligible after this season. So far, the Mets have not approached Pelfrey about an extension and nobody expects them to at [...]
Game Notes Mike Pelfrey was about as good as you can get today and had nothing to show for it. Pelf went seven innings, allowing one earned run and another unearned, giving up five hits, striking out four and walking zero. The gameplan was in place all game and he executed it, locating masterfully. Pedro Feliciano came out in the eighth inning and after a mid-season stumble, has regained form. He has allowed two runs [...]
A lot of people on here and twitter and in general say I’m very negative about the New York Mets and they are correct. Overall, the last 4 seasons have been disappointments with 2 consecutive collapses, the injuries last season and now this dreadful season. 2010 has seen rookies being called up when not ready, more mishandling of injuries and just downright bad baseball. However, there have been 3 big positives this season such as: 1. R.A. [...]
Mets sweep the Pirates in four games with a 6-2 win. Mike Pelfrey pitched seven great innings of two run baseball. Bullpen pitched well. Offense was lead by Angel Pagan and Lucas Duda who each had two RBIs on the night. Game Summary Mike Pelfrey has sealed his spot as next season’s number two starter (maybe even the ace with Johan out). Another great start by him with seven strong innings of only allowing two [...]
Mets take over the Phils with a 4-3 win to tie up the series. Mike Pelfrey had a great start going into the eighth inning only giving up two runs. Three bullpen pitches combined for two outs before Takahashi gets another save. Ike Davis goes 4-4 with 3 RBIs and Jose Reyes hits his ninth homerun of the season. Game Summary Mike Pelfrey makes a strong attempt to become next season’s number two starter as [...]
The last two days typified the season in that it was a blowout win followed by a blowout loss. Two opposite ends of the spectrum. Good and bad. It has been that way all season. Consistency, but in a mediocre way. Mike Pelfrey has become a serious concern. It was disappointing to see Mike Pelfrey’s performance. He’s been great for an extended period, then lousy for a time, seemed to turn it around and now has [...]
