The great thing about baseball is how it shifts your opinions on players from Point A to Point B and then back to Point A again. Always evolving, always transforming and always wonderfully unpredictable. It’s sort of like real life that way. I remember all the jokes, all the griping and all the complaining when Omar Minaya first signed journeyman pitcher R.A. Dickey and yet six months later he was one of our favorite players […]
Sometimes I wonder why I even read some Mets related posts on Facebook or Twitter. If you were to gauge the Mets fan base on the way General Manager, Sandy Alderson has run the team, well you would think that this team was based out of Miami. Yes, I realize that the lunatic fringe faction of our fan base ( a small – yet loud minority) will never be satisfied with Alderson until this team […]
If you are a Mets fan, you know that David Wright is still with team, or that Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran are in Toronto and St. Louis, respectively. But what happened to guys like Nick Evans or Rod Barajas? We have the answers. 11 Players who made it into a game in 2010 with the Mets, are still employed by the team. That would be the aforementioned David Wright, Ike Davis, Ruben Tejada (Although […]
Congratulations to Ichiro Suzuki, who slapped a single tonight for the 4,000th hit of his incredible career, split between Japan and the major leagues. Suzuki got his historic hit off Toronto’s R.A. Dickey. Ironically, his milestone single was his 2,722nd hit in the major leagues which also moved him ahead of Yankee legend Lou Gehrig on the All Time list. He tipped his cap and bowed as the fans at Yankee Stadium gave him a standing ovation and […]
In case you missed it, here is Travis d’Arnaud ripping a double into the gap for his first major league hit. “Finally got it out of the way,” d’Arnaud said, according to ESPN New York. “Thankful my teammates were all there every time I kept coming to the dugout without a hit and they were all backing me up and what a wonderful feeling.” I love how fluid and level his swing is, which you […]
It’s taken me a long time to warm up to John Buck after that whole punch-pie incident with Jordany Valdespin. Until that point he was exceeding my expectations for someone who was forced on us as a condition of the R.A. Dickey deal. But sometimes you just gotta move on, and after hearing his take on his new reduced role with Travis d’Aranud, I’m willing to let bygones be bygones. Put it there, pal… The […]
With Mets minor league pitchers turning in many outstanding performances last week, it was difficult to decide who would be this week’s MMN pitcher of the week. Rafael Montero posted a terrific 1.20 ERA in 15 innings pitched for Las Vegas while Jacob Lugo, who flew under the radar for most of the season, dazzled in two starts for Savannah this week. However, I decided to select the Mets’ top prospect, Noah Syndergaard. Syndergaard’s dominating two starts last week […]
A team insider has confirmed to ESPN New York that catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud is indeed slated to replace John Buck when he heads to New York for the birth of his baby. The Mets promoted d’Arnaud to Triple-A Las Vegas so he’d be close by when Buck is placed on paternity leave. It will be great to finally get a look at D’Arnaud who’s spent about three months recovering from a broken foot. “I feel like […]
Travis d’Arnaud was blown away after catching five scoreless innings from Noah Syndergaard during Sunday’s 6-0 win for Binghamton. “What can I say about an outing like that?” said d’Arnaud, who is coming back from a broken foot suffered in April. “He had an absolutely electric fastball, his curveball was pretty devastating and his changeup — I didn’t even know he had a changeup like that. It just made his fastball look so much quicker […]
