Talk about having defeat snatched out of the jaws of victory, what a depressing loss. Depressing not because the Mets played poorly, only that the victory was right there for the taking. This game featured plenty of ups and downs, but a key hit or two could have made all of us Mets fans happy instead of feeling miserable. There were some key moments in this game and at least three turning points. 1. Oliver […]
(Author’s note: This is just one man’s unbiased, impartial view of Citi Field. In no way am I implying that I am speaking for all Mets fans. Just my thoughts) After surviving a brutally cold winter in the northeast, last Sunday was one of those beautiful spring days that made it all worth it. Upon waking up, I decided that rather than doing the original productive things I had planned, namely sitting around and watching […]
After last weeks four game losing streak I started to observe our own chat room as well as other Met chat rooms and MLB blogs and some are blaming Omar Minaya for the Mets miserable start this year. He didn’t sign the big free agents that were available this past off-season. Last year he signed Luis Castillo to a 4 year contract worth $25 million. This past off-season Omar went out and signed Fransisco “Please […]
Everywhere you go today you’ll read pretty much the same thing. Tops on today’s agenda is of course Oliver Perez and wait until you see what the Mets manager had to say about him. “I don’t know what we do,” Manuel said. “It’s something that has us concerned. It has me concerned. I’ll put it that way. I’m concerned. I’m not going to come out and make a decision with the mood I’m in at […]
Game Summary The Mets (8-10) were unable to complete a sweep of the Washington Nationals (4-13) thanks to another dismal performance lefthander Olive Perez. Jordan Zimmermann stymied the Mets offense as they were literally handcuffed this afternoon and unable to mount any credible rally. Mets Pitching What can I say about Oliver Perez that you haven’t already heard? The voices of reason did say that this is exactly what would happen, but after seeing Burnett, Lowe, Wolf […]
Following yesterday’s game, Mets manager Jerry Manuel spoke to reporters at his post game presser and said that he will use his current starting pitchers one more time through the rotation. But he also cautioned that if things do not get better, he will make some changes. “It’s not rocket science,” Manuel said. “If they ain’t pitching, then you’ve got to find somebody who will.” I don’t know what he possibly could do as a manager other […]
The Mets could have upgraded the rotation this off season, but instead they chose to bring back the same 1-4 starters and fill the fifth spot with Livan Hernandez who will try to salvage the final game of the series this afternoon against the Cardinals. Manuel was visibly frustrated and not his usual candid self during last nights post game press conference. He is clearly dismayed with his under achieving rotation. “We can’t continue to […]
A 7-2 victory was just what the doctor ordered. Yes! When Ron Darling says that a guy “pitched really well tonight” who am I to dispute? Given the weather and lack of great run support, I agree. He looked good and maintained his composure. His slider looked good, and nice to see he’s sporting a new and rather effective changeup. No sense making any predictions given his erratic, “Jekyll-Hyde-esque” performances, but tonight we got the […]
Hey, did anyone else just notice that Oliver Perez didn’t skip over the foul line like he usually does after the first? It’s the first time I’ve seen him end the first inning without his customary hop over the line as he is heading to the dugout. Keith Hernandez just got a chance to speak with Rachel Robinson in the booth. His first words? “First of all, I never knew Jackie Robinson had such big […]
