This Day In MLB History…

November 2nd, 1972: Leading the league in victories (27), ERA (1.97), starts (41), complete games (30), and strike outs (310), Steve Carlton wins the NL’s CY Young Award. ‘Lefty’s’ 27 victories nearly accounts for nearly half (45.8%) of the last-place Phillies wins. Although it pains me to praise the work of a ballplayer that played […]

Will he stay or will he go.  That is the question that has been asked all season.  Since it is not yet a reality that he really may not be here next year, how do you think you would feel if he signed with another team? Just think for a moment that he REALLY does […]

Phoreshadowing The Phillies’ Phuture

In making the final out of the Phillies’ season for the second straight year, Ryan Howard suffered an apparent Achilles injury, falling to the ground and writhing in pain as the Cardinals celebrated their unlikely division series victory.  In a worst-case scenario (torn ACL), Howard would miss nine months or more while recovering from surgery […]

Pelf-Awareness

I am one of the regulars on a weekly Kult of Mets Personalities podcast, and if you listened to it, you would know that I am the resident Mike “Big Pelf” Pelfrey homer. I root for him probably harder than any other Met. I don’t know why either, but I feel a personal connection to […]

An article by posted on April 7, 2011 0 Comments

I am going to start this article off by adding the disclaimer that we are still only five games into the season. However, the Mets have gotten off to a quick 3-2 start. The team has looked good with the exception of Mike Pelfrey. It is already obvious that this is a different Mets team […]

In a late night stunner, Cliff Lee agreed to sign with the Philadelphia Phillies, as first reported by MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan. Early last night, there were reports that the Yankees had fears that Lee wasn’t landing in The Bronx and that proved correct. Before midnight they were told by Lee’s agent, Darek Braunecker, that Lee […]

Playing Hard Versus Hardly Playing

Wins and losses mean very little these days for the Mets since being mathematically eliminated last week. That said, I was stunned by how the team responded after Chase Utley’s dirty take-out slide of Ruben Tejada last night. What ever happened to pride and respect? Once again, the Mets shrunk in the face of adversity […]
