On Monday night, I watch the replay of Johan Santana’s no-hitter on SNY and was just as captivated as the night I watched it live on television. But this time around, I kept thinking to myself what could have been with Santana had his Mets’ tenure not been decimated by injuries. Then I of course looked to the future hope of the Mets’ starting rotation that almost certainly does not include the veteran lefty. Matt [...]
Updated with thoughts by Joe D. on 5/31 When Terry Collins removed Dillon Gee in the eighth inning last night after registering one out, I like everyone else who were interacting on Twitter busted a gasket. Here was Gee, pitching the game of his life and in the midst of retiring 15 consecutive batters – including the last five via a strikeout – and Collins decided to pull him despite only throwing 88 pitches to that [...]
One of my greatest wishes as a relatively young Mets fan is wanting to have seen Tom Seaver pitch. Sure, I’ve seen the highlight videos and World Series tapes that portrayed his dominance, but it’s still not the same as seeing the best pitcher in Mets’ history actually toe the rubber. However, albeit still very early, we younger Mets fans are seeing firsthand what it was like when Seaver took the mound in the form [...]
Most baseball pundits cast off the Mets’ outfield as being the worst in the league heading into the season. On paper, maybe that is correct, but based on performance, the Mets outfield hasn’t been all that bad. Lucas Duda has looked good offensively, Marlon Byrd has had some big hits, Mike Baxter gives all-out effort every time he’s on the field, and Jordany Valdespin proved last night what a great asset he is to the [...]
NL East At A Glance Miami Marlins: The team that essentially alienated whatever fan base they thought they had looks like an obvious 5th place team in this division. They do however have the best player in the division in Giancarlo Stanton. No matter what the rumors say, I still think Giancarlo is a Marlin for a very long time. If I’m wrong, I hope I’m apologizing on my way to buy a Giancarlo Mets [...]
To turn attention away from Mike Piazza and the Hall of Fame vote for just a minute, let’s discuss the future Mike Piazza, or so we hope. The Mets acquired Travis d’Arnaud, their catcher of the future, in the trade that sent R.A. Dickey to the Toronto Blue Jays. But why can’t the future be right now? d’Arnaud said he’s ready to play and recovered from a knee injury that ended his minor league season [...]
MLB.com’s Marty Noble wrote a piece that the Mets should try to make a push to acquire Miami Marlins budding superstar slugger Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton is just 23 years old and has shown mammoth power in just three professional seasons. But hold on, the Marlins have already traded the rest of their star players. Why would the team part ways with its only young power bat? Well, Stanton is a hot commodity right now, and [...]
Just in case you haven’t noticed, the Mets signed David Wright to an eight-year contract extension. Also a friendly reminder, David Wright is a third baseman. The Mets also have a guy named Ike Davis, who despite a slow start in 2012 managed to club 32 home runs. Davis plays first base and is just 25 years old just so you know. Of course, as Mets fan, you know all this information through and through. [...]
Heading into this offseason, Sandy Alderson was bound to make some changes to the Mets’ roster. Even with a limited supply of funds, how long can a team deal with mediocrity before making a change? That same limited supply of funds virtually made it hard to think the Mets would pursue free agents, so Alderson came out and said that he’d be creative in exploring trade possibilities. We’re only in late November, and already it [...]
