Six weeks ago, an unidentified Mets executive – and really, how many are there – told Mike Puma of the Post that the front office was pleased with the work of Terry Collins and his staff. Then he said this: “I think they’re doing a good job of sprinting to the finish line.” Sure, if the runner in question is Ramon Castro. The Mets are sprinting nowhere, once again. They’re tumbling, scuffling, tripping to the […]
If you were paying attention during the fourth inning of today’s Mets broadcast, you would have learned that the Mets catchers lead the National League with 45 runs batted in. Wow, really? Omir Santos leads the pack with 22, followed by Ramon Castro who knocked in 13 runners before being traded, and Brian Schneider is holding up the rear with 10 ribbies. Santos is seventh in the league, but when you take a closer look it gets […]
Here’s the place for Mets fans to sound off on anything and everything! An open thread for ranting and raving about the Mets, completely raw and uncensored!. Today’s Hot Point Issues 1. Last night the Mets made a bold move by trading catcher Ramon Castro plus all of his remaining salary to the White Sox for one time pitching prospect, Lance Broadway. On the surface, the trade looks terrible, but is it? In my opinion, the real […]
It’s official, Ramon Castro is now a former Met. With the emergence of the latest Mets sensation Omir Santos, and the return of Brian Schneider, the Mets had to make a move and so they traded Ramon Castro to the Chicago White Sox for right handed pitcher Lance Broadway. The Mets also kicked in some cash to sweeten the pot, with one source reporting that it was $1.4 million dollars, the amount that was left […]
Gary Cohen just gave an update on Brian Schneider during the WB11 Mets broadcast. He said, “Brian Schneider isn’t even close to a return and in fact he hasn’t even done any running”. Schneider, was placed on the disabled list with a strained back on April 17, and was eligible to return on May 2nd. However, he is now experiencing problems with his calf muscle. It’s not know when he is expected to be ready […]
Maybe Omar Minaya knew exactly what he was doing when he told Fox Sports that Wright, Reyes, Beltran and Delgado don’t have an edge… Maybe it was sheer genius when Jerry Manuel pinch hit for Ramon Castro last week much to the dismay of many… When Alex Cora stepped in for Luis Castillo while he was out and looked like Rogers Hornsby maybe something clicked… When Manuel threatened John Maine and Mike Pelfrey with the […]
The NY Post is reporting that Brian Schneider is still being hampered by a sore right calf and may not be activated from the DL as expected on Sunday. Omir Santos and Ramon Castro are getting a reprieve this weekend when it comes to worrying about their roster spots after regular catcher Brian SchneiderBrian Schneider (pictured) developed a sore right calf this week.Schneider was eligible to come off the 15-day DL on Sunday in Philadelphia, […]
Game Summary The Mets (9-12) lost to the Florida Marlins (13-8) 4-3 who won the series and and got back to their winning ways. The Mets squandered another solid start, this time by Johan Santana who didn’t figure into the decision. The bullpen had another classic meltdown, this time by J.J. Putz who along with Sean Green have blown back to back saves. Mets Pitching Johan Santana deserved a win today, but instead he got another no-decision as the Mets bats and the […]
I polled my Twitter followers tonight and asked the following question… Should Omir Santos replace Ramon Castro as the primary backup when Brian Schneider is activated from the DL on Friday? mattstedjan@metsmerized Yes!… and give him the chance at first string. CRSLINY@MetsMerized I LIKE THIS KID, AND I THINK HE MAY BE IN OUR FUTURE, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HIM TAKE SCHNEIDER’S SPOT. rainiedazze@MetsMerized say no to Darth Vader! TIBlockhead@MetsMerized Yes! Go Santos woo hoooo […]
