Mets In Contact With Other Teams For A Top Starter

An article by posted on May 17, 2010 0 Comments

According to a report by Andy Martino of the Daily News, the Mets do have the payroll flexibility to add another starter “if they remain in contention”. That’s a big “if” of course. A person with direct knowledge of the Mets’ thinking also told Martino that the team has no interest in bringing Pedro Martinez back to Queens. […]

Ollie’s Last Stand?

An article by posted on May 13, 2010 0 Comments

Gas is expensive these days and so would be swallowing the contract of Ollie Perez.  Right now you couldn’t get a tank of unleaded in a trade for the maddening lefty.    Nevertheless, it’s time to remove the tags and push this clunker down the hill.  For everyone’s sanity.  “They Shoot Lefties, Don’t they?” has found it’s […]

The Ballad of Oliver and John

An article by posted on May 12, 2010 0 Comments

A few weeks ago, I suggested that the Mets pitching staff’s overperformance could result in a hat-tipping to Dan Warthen, who may be deceivingly quiet. By “deceiving,” I mean he is not a flashy pitching coach, people rarely ever heard of him before he came to the Mets although he does have a bit of […]

Is Santana Still The Ace We Traded For?

An article by posted on May 4, 2010 0 Comments

When Johan Santana was traded here I was extremely happy, he was supposed to be the best pitcher in the majors.  Santana was going to get the Mets a World Series title, the first World Series title since 1986.  Santana did not come cheap, it cost the Mets prospects that didn’t amount to much but […]

When The Ace Is No Longer A Given

An article by posted on May 3, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets have an outstanding record in comparison to what most Met fans expected. Almost nobody expected a first place position at this juncture of the season. Almost nobody expected that they would play with such vigor, good defense, and timely hitting. I can safely say that NOBODY expected our ace, the only pitcher that […]

The Mets Pitching Staff Has Been Good For Nothing

An article by posted on April 27, 2010 0 Comments

Yes, you did read the title correctly. Over the past week and a half, Mets pitchers have indeed been good for nothing, meaning they’ve been good enough to hold the opposition to practically nothing on the scoreboard. Pitching was not supposed to be the strong point of the 2010 Mets. After all, the Mets’ starting […]

Our Offense Needs To Step It Up

An article by posted on April 27, 2010 0 Comments

The pitching this young season has been great.  I don’t think that anyone can honestly say they thought the pitchers, be it the rotation or the bullpen would perform the way they have so far.  Every expert said that the Mets couldn’t contend in 2010 because of the starting pitching after Johan but the starters, […]

Mike Pelfrey: Bend But Don’t Break Baby

An article by posted on April 26, 2010 0 Comments

Last night’s one nothing victory over Atlanta cemented a terrific start to the 2010 campaign for Mets hurler, Mike Pelfrey (4-0); possibly of his career with now 24 consecutive scoreless innings. As the great Joe Morgan pointed out himself during the game, Pelfrey showed strong signs of growth, maturity, poise and skill, throwing five shutout […]

Jenrry Mejia To Remain In Bullpen

An article by posted on April 26, 2010 0 Comments

As the Mets’ bullpen has exceeded expectations in the early part of the season, the need for Jenrry Mejia seems to be diminishing, but Jerry Manuel remains adamant that the 20-year-old will be a bigger part of the pen rather than be pushed out and sent to tune up in the minor leagues for an […]

One Game Under .500, Not Too Bad

An article by posted on April 24, 2010 0 Comments

Through the first 17 games of the season the New York Mets are 8-9. No, this is not the fast start that us fans had wanted to see the team get off to, but it not too bad considering the losses of the first 4 series. Also, we are yet to see the offense come […]
