Pagan’s Maturing Giving Mets Options

An article by posted on May 23, 2010 0 Comments

Last winter, when the Mets signed Jason Bay, I was struck by the amount of talented players whom the Mets had procured and had to play the outfield in 2010. I envisioned an outfield of Beltran flanked by Bay and the ex-Brave Jeff Francoeur, who had come to the Mets in the Ryan Church deal, and had […]

I openly admit that I have not come to terms with the fact that we actually dealt with a four game sweep in Florida, because in my recent memory, that has never happened before. The Mets were usually able to scratch out a game or something, but we really messed it up this weekend. It’s […]

Some might call me fickle.  Others might call me faithless.  I am certainly not fair weather.  Call me whatever you’d like.  But I’m sure that I wasn’t the only one to leave Citifield before the end of the game last Tuesday night. Those who stayed saw the Mets score six runs on so many clutch […]

Jonathon Niese was hit hard, and the Mets could hardly come up with a string of timely hits in their 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Reds. Game Notes: Jonathon Niese was hit hard, going six innings, allowing four runs, twelve hits including giving up a couple of homers. The only saving grace for Niese all night […]

An article by posted on May 5, 2010 0 Comments

My hunch is that few to no Mets fans now miss Brian Schneider, last year’s non-entity of a backstop. Yeah, and the non-entity the year before that. After Fernando Nieve blew Maine’s 4-2 lead in the eighth inning (Mainey threw six above average innings in one of his best performances thus far) in Cincy by […]

Jeff Francoeur, who was struck on the left elbow by a pitch in the seventh inning last night, will be in the lineup this afternoon. Francoeur, who put on a personal one-man highlight reel against the Phillies, was later removed from the game, taken for x-rays and was diagnosed with a contusion on his elbow. He was expected to get […]

Even with a John Maine injury, the Mets offense proved effective in their 5-2 win versus the Atlanta Braves Game Notes John Maine looked decent for 3 2/3 innings until he was pulled with an injury in his left, non throwing elbow. Maine walked two, struck out three and gave up one run which was […]

What If Beltran Doesn’t Return?

Last night’s Met victory provided me with a brief moment of satisfaction as it pertains to this team. It’s frustrating seeing the Mets flailing away at the baseball at times. Johan pitched pretty well however, and the Mets finally won a series. Rejoice Met Nation! I must broach a subject that has perplexed and exasperated me […]

According to Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog, Ike Davis will be wearing uniform number 29 when he takes the field for tonight’s Major League debut against the Chicago Cubs at Citi Field. Over the years, the Mets have had many great players who donned number 29, including one of my favorite Mets of all time, Dave […]
