Niese Stellar Against ‘Stros; Mets Win 10-3

An article by posted on July 25, 2009 0 Comments

Jonathon Niese was called up from Triple-A Buffalo to replace the injured Fernando Nieve in the starting rotation.  If he continues to pitch like he did tonight, he might not have to go back anytime soon. After a rough first inning, Niese settled down and pitched beautifully for six additional innings.  The offense came alive […]

Even Batman Can’t Find The Mets Missing Offense

For many years, I have been patrolling the streets of Gotham City. Wrongdoers tremble at the sound of my name. Criminals cannot hide from me because I lurk behind every shadow. If you commit a crime in my city, I will find the smallest piece of evidence to incriminate you. You may know me as […]

Mark Teahen Is Good To Go

Since the season started and we got socked with all these injuries, I really haven’t sounded the alarm as far as trades go. I don’t really subscribe to the notion of trading prospects for rental players. The only player I had any interest in acquiring, and one that I devoted an entire blog to, has been Alex […]

Thoughts After A Lost Weekend

An article by posted on July 6, 2009 0 Comments

Watching the Mets this past weekend ranked slightly above the on goings with the Kardashian Clan, but below C-Span. Anytime your hometown team averages one run per game, in the bandbox known as Citizen’s Bank Ballpark, it is a frustrating and sleepy endeavor. Regardless of who appears in the daily lineup. Right now the Mets […]

How Well Does Murphy Have To Hit To Keep His Job At 1B?

An article by posted on May 22, 2009 0 Comments

So now that we finally figured out where Dan Murphy should play defensively, how long before we start worrying about his lack of hitting this month? I mean it’s great that we found him a permanent position he can call his own, but will he hit enough to justify his hold on first base both […]

Jo-han, Jo-han, A Pitcher’s Life For Me

An article by posted on April 25, 2009 0 Comments

Amazing. There is no better word to describe Johan Santana. Talk about a stopper – he’s the only guy in the Mets rotation who can win!  (And have a different handshake for every teammate!)  Now I have been following baseball since 1990, and I’ll admit I have never been a fan of pitching. Never gave it […]

Meet Me in St. Louis, Luis … and Bring the Rest of the Mets With You!

Not too long ago, Mets fans were second-guessing the decision to sign Luis Castillo to such a long-term deal. But Castillo is off to an amazing start this year, beginning last night 4th in the league in hitting, and he continued his hot streak last night against the Cardinals. David Wright, on the other hand, […]

Luis Castillo, Meet Guillermo Mota

An article by posted on November 4, 2008

When we acquired Luis Castillo on Deadline Day 2007, I thought that getting an everyday second baseman was exactly what the club needed. While Castillo performed in August and September, the club historically collapsed (how long will we be hearing those words in a sentence?). Based on Castillo’s performance in August and September, Omar Minaya […]

Another Casualty – Easley Could Be Done For The Season

An article by posted on September 18, 2008

Less than two days ago the Mets learned that Fernando Tatis separated his shoulder and would be out for the rest of the season. Last night we learned that Damion Easley is dangerously close to that same fate. Easley revealed yesterday that he had actually suffered a small tear of his right quadriceps muscle. The tear […]

When Will the Mets Come Through for the Big Pelf?

An article by posted on June 6, 2008

Thanks to a walk-off hit by pitch charged to Scott Schoeneweis, the Mets fell to the Padres 2-1. The game’s starter, Mike Pelfrey had pitched six solid innings of baseball, only allowing one run. Was it the best start of Pelfrey’s career? No. Did he keep his team in the game? Yes. Did he get the job […]
