Fielding Metric – UZR

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. I spent the whole weekend with both sides of my family and had a great time. I went shopping on Friday and did some Albert Pujols-like damage to my holiday shopping list. But now back to the grind. I explored some of the more common offensive metrics […]

Former Met Kaz Matsui Joins Rakuten Eagles of Japan

I thought this was interesting to share.  Most of you still remember Kaz Matsui. Since leaving Japan, he’s already moved three times, first to the Mets, then to the Rockies, and finally to the Astros.  He finished the 2010 season in the Astros’ minor league system after being waived by them in May, and is now a free agent.  If […]

Met Nation, We are a bit closer to locking down our GM, the first chip in the succession of moves that are supposed to take the Mets back to the promise land. A bit much? Well, that’s the way we should view these moves. Really. Nothing less than this should be expected by any of […]

 ”Just when I wanted out…they pull me BACK IN!” Michael Corleone said it best in the Godfather III as the Don of the family who finally wanted to go legit and leave behind his life of crime, murder and corruption. I felt the same way this past MLB draft when the Mets once again – […]

We Are Still Operating Without A Setup Man

An article by posted on July 15, 2010 0 Comments

It’s now apparent that the Mets do have what it takes to make a run for the division. We find ourselves in this position because it turns out the Mets were not as bad as many of the experts had projected, and the NL East in general had a lot more parity at the top […]

We usually tend to take our rights and freedoms for granted; as if they were a given. I’ve come to believe, over time, that it’s not so much anyone’s fault but a result of the success of those that have given so much of themselves.  Their success in keeping us free, demands that we step […]

The following paragraph is part of a letter that I wrote – it was published in the New York Times on January 26, 2004. “President Bush mentioned the issue of steroids in sports in his State of the Union address on Tuesday, January 21, 2004. As a lifelong baseball fan, I am very concerned about […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 9)

An article by posted on June 8, 2010 0 Comments

Nine weeks into the season already? I can’t believe it myself. In random baseball news, Armando Galarraga threw only about the 390,000th non-perfect game in major league baseball, nothing special. John Maine is on the DL with a weak shoulder and now Perez because his knee hurts. Uh…no comment. At least he’s not taking up […]
