Sounding Off: Wright and Recker Both Take The Blame For Last Night’s Loss

After yesterday’s 2-1 ninth inning loss, David Wright didn’t blame the bad call at third base and instead pointed the finger of blame for the loss on himself and the rest of the offense. “Sometimes the calls go your way. Sometimes they don’t. What we need to do a better job of is offensively going […]

3 Up & 3 Down: Frustrated By The Phillies Edition

In last weekend’s edition of 3&3, I cautioned to watch out for a Dodger’s team that was struggling. That warning should have been extended to this weekend’s series with the Phillies as well. Against two teams that have been struggling, our Mets finished 1-5. Looks like our team is fast becoming a cure to another […]

Las Vegas 10, Sacramento 6 On the mound, Darin Gorski got the start and had a decent outing. He fared much better than he had in his previous start, but finished just a third of an inning shy of getting a quality start. The lefty allowed three earned runs and struck out four, en route to […]

Managing To Be Evasive: Will The Mets Extend Terry Collins?

With Terry Collins’ contract due to expire at the end of this season, speculation is rife that along with a shift in the talent level (and hopefully the fortunes) of the team, a move may be made to replace the Mets’ skipper.  GM Sandy Alderson having been typically circumspect when the question of a managerial […]

3 Up and 3 Down: Frying The Friars Edition

The New York Mets wind up winning two out of three games in opening series against the San Diego Padres.

Matt Harvey: The kid […]

Was Matt den Dekker In Line For A Roster Spot With The Mets?

At this point, I think everyone knows that I am a Matt den Dekker fan. I’ve argued in his favor since early spring training, when he leaped through the St. Lucie night and pulled a would-be home run from beyond the left-centerfield wall. Many Mets fans never knew who den Dekker was until that moment. That […]

The Steroid Era Is Not A Thing Of The Past

The current period of baseball has often been labeled the “Post-Steroid Era”, but there is nothing “post” about it. Yesterday we learned that over 90 baseball players’ names lie within the records of the now infamous Miami Biogenesis clinic; enough athletes to field ten teams. We talk about steroids as if it’s a thing of […]

Sandy Alderson’s Philosophy On Evaluating Terry Collins

General manager Sandy Alderson stopped short of saying manager Terry Collins’ job was secure, but in a conference call this week, left the impression he will be judged with a broad paintbrush. As GM, Alderson’s job description entails building for the future, and while Collins has nothing guaranteed to him beyond this season, it doesn’t mean […]

A Review Of Dave Hudgens, Mets Hitting Approach, Results

I probably wasn’t the only person frustrated last year watching Kirk Nieuwenhuis, or Lucas Duda, or Ike Davis appearing to take fat pitches down the middle of the plate only to see them swing at a breaking pitch in the dirt or a fastball at eye level. On several notable occasions Keith Hernandez himself went […]
