Beasts of the East

The Mets created a lot of goodwill with their loyal fans after a 9-1 homestand late in April.  It certainly seemed as though some things were working: Ike Davis was called up and created an impression on the team and the fanbase, Jose Reyes moved his spot in the lineup and it seemed to work […]

Last night I took a look at my weekly stats report from the week of April 18-24 and was surprised to see that MMO had reached another milestone. It’s been a while since I shared some sire info, so I thought, hey why not… Monday April 19th, 2010 will forever go down as the day that […]

There’s Only One NY Team In First Place, And It’s Not The Yankees!

Not only are the Mets all alone in the NL East, but they have more home wins than any other team in baseball! Last night, the Mets set a season high for runs scored with ten, while improving to 8-1 on their 10-game homestand which concludes this afternoon. So many things to be smiling about […]

An article by posted on April 28, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets of 2010 are doing things that teams of winning seasons did. Some say it’s coincidence; I say it’s a good sign. For example, the Mets current seven-game winning streak is the longest in April since winning seven straight in 2006, when they came within one game of the World Series. The April winning […]

Optimists Have Their Day In The Sun

Yesterday, opening day, the optimists ruled. The naysayers out there already have their rebuttals. “You had Santana pitching, you should have won. Now lets see what you’ve got”.

The Best Rotation Available is Yet Unavailable

All offseason we talked about what is best for our beloved Mets. What’s best as far as free agency. What’s best as far as who is managing. What’s best from the GM position.

Strasburg Making Me Nervous

An article by posted on March 10, 2010 0 Comments

Seeing highlights of Nationals’ pitcher Stephen Strasburg from yesterday’s game against Detroit bummed me out just a little.  I love watching great pitchers do their thing, and it’s especially exciting to see young pitchers like Strasburg break into the bigs and blow hitters away.  But I’m just a bit bummed out, because he’s in the […]

Last week, when Johan Santana was asked by a reporter who the best pitcher in the NL East was, without hesitation he replied, “Santana”. A couple of days later after the Phillies Jimmy Rollins caught wind of it, he disagreed and said the number one pitcher in the NL East is Roy Halladay. Take off […]

The Mets played one heck of a series against the Phillies this weekend, sweeping Philly and securing their lead atopthe NL East, pushing the Phillies back 16.5 games in the division. At this point, don’t be surprised if the Nats don’t pass the current 4th place team. Then their only hope would be to play spoiler. What a series for […]
