Are The Mets Done Shoving Parnell Down Our Throats Yet?

An article by posted on September 15, 2011 0 Comments

This is beginning to get ridiculous now.  First the Mets removed Izzy from the closer role and asked him to groom Parnell to be the teams closer.  Now since Parnell has blown 5 saves in 10 chances they have decided to try John Franco as a potential mentor/tutor? I am getting a little tired of […]

For the past few seasons it was believed that Mets starter Mike Pelfrey had the goods to be a top of the rotation type starter.  Last season he had his best season as a pro as he won 15 games against just 9 losses.  His career low 3.66 ERA and dominance for most of the season warranted […]

Sandy Alderson’s comments about the New York Mets not being able to spend this off-season did not make much sense. Why with the impending sale of a minority stake in the team would Alderson come out at the end of August and say that the Mets would not be big players in the free agent […]

Let’s Face It, Mike Pelfrey Has Maxed Out As A New York Met

Last night was just another example of Mike Pelfrey being Mike Pelfrey. After cruising through the San Diego lineup for the first five innings allowing just one run, it all came crashing down on the right-hander in the sixth. The 27-year-old allowed three runs on four sharply hit balls and a sac fly. The Amazin’s so called “ace” left […]
