Gary Sheffield is expected to start in right field for the first time this season. He enters the game with 499 homeruns and may mark the first memorable Mets moment at Citi Field if he hits number 500 at Shea tonight. I’m not exactly sure how to feel about that, but if it’s a game winning homer than bring it on. Who knows what we can expect from Oliver Perez when he takes the mound […]
I was just reading an interesting article by David Lennon of Newsday on his blog. Lennon seems all fired up about comments that were made by Jerry Manuel and Dan Warthen who both said they were encouraged by Ollie’s last start. I was kind of surprised yesterday to hear both manager Jerry Manuel and pitching coach Dan Warthen say they were “encouraged” by Oliver Perez’s 4 1/3-inning stint in an 8-6 loss to the Reds. […]
It may be far easier to unravel the mysteries of Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid, than it would be to figure out Oliver Perez. Todays performance by Perez was like a perfect microcosm of his entire career. He starts out be teasing us with a tantalizing performance in the first two innings that invoked memories of Sandy Koufax, and then in the next two innings he does his best Kei Igawa impression. How can anyone […]
The jubilation of the Mets Opening Day win becomes somewhat tempered tonight, when Mike Pelfrey takes the mound against Edinson Volquez and the Cincinnati Reds. The certainty and confidence we feel whenever it’s Johan Santana’s turn in the rotation is very comforting to say the least. Dayne Perry of ESPN, wrote today that Johan Santana needs to get off to a fast start. He writes, Perhaps no player is more essential to his team’s success than Santana. He’s […]
This past weekend we got a chance to see 2 exhibition games played at our brand new ballpark Citi Field and it didn’t dissapoint. The park is beautiful and I look forward to attending many games there. It’s totally different from Shea but it still felt welcoming. The differences in fact at first was a little overwhelming. The one thing that was the same was the “boo birds” in attendance for Saturday’s game against The […]
I don’t even know how to feel about that piss-poor performance by Oliver Perez yesterday. Only 24 hours from Opening Day, and he already has most of us worried including his own pitching coach who ripped him ten days ago for being out of shape, and his own manager who said he was very, very, very concerned. (<—- 3 verys) At this point it’s something we can’t even do anything about… $36 million dollars and you can’t […]
According to 1050 ESPN the Mets will be meeting with Scott Boras who represents both Oliver Perez and Derek Lowe. The NY Post confirms that Omar Minaya and Scott Boras will have lunch together on Wednesday. Here is what ESPN originally posted on their blog: A source says while in New York, Scott Boras will hold a face-to-face meeting with Mets executives to discuss Derek Lowe and Oliver Perez. Boras is in New York today […]
