From Left Field: Mets Say Goodbye To Pro Player…Dolphin…Sun Life Stadium

From Left Field: Mets Have Knack For Making No-Name Pitchers Look Great

So Steve Carlton picked up the win last night for the Philadelphia Phillies… Actually, it was rookie Vance Worley, throwing a Carlton-like game, who picked up the win. During their history, the Mets always seem to have a knack for losing to no-name pitchers. Granted, Worley is on fire right now, but there’s no reason […]

Maybe it just seems that way since almost every post was Beltran related, but even so Beltran’s association with the Mets is history. Anyway, here’s a Beltran update. In 11 […]

All Star Week: A Look Back At Mets In The Home Run Derby

Tonight is the annual Home Run Derby, which in my mind is one of the most exciting events in all of sports. Though no Mets will be participating, the field consisting of David Ortiz, Adrian Gonzalez, Jose Bautista, Robinson Cano, Prince Fielder, Rickie Weeks, Matt Kemp and Matt Holliday should put on a good show.

Granted, Bay missed a significant chunk of time last season due to a concussion, but even before that, he struggled offensively. This […]

The Mets Are Still Finding Interesting Ways To Lose

An article by posted on May 17, 2011 0 Comments

I am happier than anyone with how the Mets have been playing lately. The team is getting offensive production from unlikely sources, the bullpen has been miraculous and Mike Pelfrey seems to be getting back on track. However, all of a sudden, shades of the 2009 injury plague have crept back to the team. David […]
