How Strasburg Deal Impacts Harvey

Watching Stephen Strasburg pitch on Monday night, part of the Monday Night Baseball telecast on ESPN, he wasn’t as sharp against the Detroit Tigers as he had been against his previous two opponents, the Kansas City Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals.

West Coast Trips Exacerbate Obsession

My addiction is permeating everyone in my home.  We are becoming consumed by this team, and I love it. Last I remember, Steven Matz had just slashed a double down the right field line and Dave Roberts took the ball from Scott Kazmir.  Next thing I know, I wake up to Geico Sportsnight on SNY. […]

Do The Mets Have a Catching Problem?

Is this situation from 2015 or 2016?  Travis d’Arnaud suffers an injury that is going to keep him on the DL for an extended period of time. The Mets then turn to Kevin Plawecki, who just doesn’t hit.

Harvey Was Cruising, Then It All Fell Apart

Tough loss on Saturday. I say that because when the Mets hit three home runs, score five runs, and Matt Harvey is on the mound I expect the team to win. Especially when Harvey retired the first 13 Cleveland batters he faced. Unfortunately for the Mets they took a hard luck 7-5 loss to drop […]
