An article by posted on August 14, 2009 0 Comments

As I wrote back when the Mets first acquired him, the Mets were the big winners when they dumped the lackluster Church in exchange for the young righthanded former first rounder, Jeff Francoeur. About a week and a half later, I indicated that his recent hitting woes were simply a matter of making adjustments. Here […]

An article by posted on August 1, 2009 0 Comments

It seems fitting that on Build-A-Bear Night at Citi Field, the Mets would come out of their two-game hibernation.  Their 12-hit attack on the Diamondbacks’ pitchers, capped by Angel Pagan’s eighth-inning grand slam, fueled the Mets to a 9-6 victory Saturday night over Arizona. Pagan picked a perfect time to hit the first home run […]

Jonathon Niese was called up from Triple-A Buffalo to replace the injured Fernando Nieve in the starting rotation.  If he continues to pitch like he did tonight, he might not have to go back anytime soon.

The New York Mets and the Houston Astros started off the game 1-1 and all was fine until a very depressing fourth inning when pitcher Mike Hampton hit a 2-run homer off of Johan Santana.

It’s strange what a difference four months can make. In March, we were filled with optimism. Our big concern coming into 2009 was avoiding a 3rd straight September collapse. We hoped for the best and were anticipating an enjoyable season in our new stadium. Our huge Achilles heel was solved when Omar Minaya went out […]

One player whose name is starting to get thrown around in conversations about Mets Minor Leaguers with good statistics is Josh Satin. Satin is mainly a second basemen (but can play the other infield positions as well) for the Savannah Sand Gnats. His stats this year, look promising for the 24-year old, but there are a […]

In Defense Of Jeff Francoeur

An article by posted on July 11, 2009 0 Comments

It’s amazing how wide ranging the opinions have been on the trade that sent Ryan Church to Atlanta for Jeff Francoeur on Friday. It looks likes this trade has the fan base far more divided than the Lastings Milledge trade, with both sides either loving it or hating it. I took a spin around a few […]

Evans Sent Down, Francoeur Batting Fifth

An article by posted on July 11, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets made a couple of moves today. First, they claimed veteran infielder Angel Berroa off waivers from the Yankees and assigned him to AAA Buffalo. Berroa, the 2003 AL Rookie of the Year, had been designated for assignment by the Yankees on June 24 after hitting just .136 with one double and one RBI in 21 […]
