DANIEL MURPHY, 2B PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS As often has been the case with Daniel Murphy, expectations were moderate at best. If given the chance, the Mets would have replaced him, but with more pressing needs they spent their limited resources elsewhere so Murphy remained in the lineup. After several years of searching for a position, Murphy finally settled in at second base and has improved defensively. As a .290 lifetime hitter with limited power, Murphy was […]
Before I begin, let me preface this by saying that if you’re not a Daniel Murphy supporter, then in all likelihood you will not be a fan of this post. (And for the record, the title of this piece was suggested by my Gal For All Seasons, so I’m not alone in my appreciation for the Mets’ second baseman.) Now that we have that out of the way, let’s look back at the great second […]
Tuesday night’s game at Citi Field marked the first time the New York Mets organization has hosted the Midsummer Classic in nearly 50 years. The last one was at Shea in it’s inaugural season of 1964. While this year’s game couldn’t match the on-field drama of that contest which ended when the Phillies’ Johnny Callison hit a walk-off homerun (long before anyone ever used the word “walk-off”) to give the NL a 7-4 victory it […]
Edgardo Alfonzo remains one of the most beloved Mets alumni, both for his post-season heroics (e.g. 3 HR’s including a ninth inning grand slam in the space of two vital 1999 playoff games against the Reds and Diamondbacks), and his role as part of the “Best Infield Ever” as dubbed by Sports Illustrated. His flexibility as a player made him an invaluable asset to the team which moved him from his original spot at second […]
It’s been a while since I last posted with fatherhood taking a great deal of my free time. So let me begin by saying I hope everyone who waited with baited breath for the world to end this weekend enjoyed maxing out their credit cards and cavalierly finding the gumption to tell their bosses off at work; not to mention consumating their affairs with the 20 year family nanny. All done of course with the […]
Hey Everybody, Here are a few newsworthy stories from last week for today’s Morning Grind: Mets Ink Capuano and Buchholz Sandy Alderson has continued his genius signings and has inked RHP Taylor Buchholz and LHP Chris Capuano, both to one year, incentive laden deals. Capuano will receive a base salary of $1.5 million and Buchholz $600,000. I love the signing of Capuano because he is capable of being a successful starter and reliever. He is a 1st half pitcher, lifetime 29-24 […]
Andre Dawson finally received the call he’s been waiting nine years for. However, he won’t be celebrating by going to Disneyworld. Instead, he’ll be going to Cooperstown as the newest member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. In one of the closest votes in Hall of Fame history, Dawson was named on 77.9% of the 539 ballots cast by the members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. His 420 votes were fifteen more […]
