The MetsMerizedOnline Player of the Week for this week has shown he has a great impact on this team. This week includes the series against the Atlanta Braves and the weekend (2 of the 4 games) series against the San Francisco Giants for a total of 5 games. Here is our MMO Player of the Week for 4/16/2012-4/22/2012: Through the use of the scorecard, let’s take a look at how Kirk Nieuwenhuis did this week: G AB […]
The San Francisco Giants are champions of the world after knocking out the Texas Rangers 3-1 to win the World Series 4-1. For the second time in the series, San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum outdueled the Texas ace Cliff Lee. The Giants took the lead on a 3-Run HR by Edgar Renteria off Lee in the 7th. Nelson Cruz answered with a solo shot in the bottom of the 7th off Lincecum. Lincecum was dominant […]
When one thinks of storied franchises in Baseball the Yankees immediately come to mind, thanks to Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle and 27 titles. One can even think of the Dodgers. It was in Brooklyn where the color barrier was broken and in Los Angeles where for a 5 year period a LHP pitcher dominated the game like no other. However, the very fabric of our National Pastime is sewn with the Giants. Starting back in 1883 […]
THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT! When Brian Wilson (and his beard) struck out Ryan Howard looking to end the Phillies season, it set up a date in the World Series with the American League champion Texas Rangers starting this Wednesday in San Francisco. Texas Rangers The Rangers rotation is anchored by mid-season acquisition, and playoff ace, Cliff Lee. After Lee is CJ Wilson, Colby Lewis, and Tommy Hunter. Lewis has a 1.45 playoff ERA with […]
Leapin’ lizards! For the first time since Barry Bonds left his syringe in San Francisco, the Giants are champions of the National League West. They won their first division title since 2003 (and only their sixth NL West title overall) by defeating the San Diego Padres on the final day of the regular season, capping a tremendous second half that saw them rise from mediocrity to the top of the division. Also, by defeating the […]
I grew up in an era when interleague play was a pipe dream, or a gleam in Bud Selig’s eye. But I always loved watching the World Series when a National League team would face off against an American League squad, and I also remember going to the Mayor’s Trophy Game, an exhibition between the Mets and Yankees each year that didn’t amount to much because both teams let their scrubs play. So I was […]
While we all know how the Mets have suffered what has basically amounted to season-ending injuries for several players, among them arguably our two top sluggers in Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado, I don’t think any of us expected this power outage to be legendary. Because that’s what this is bordering on. The Mets have 76 home runs through 132 games, putting them on pace for 93, their lowest total since 1992 when Bobby Bonilla […]
These last four games have been great for us Mets fans and for the Mets themselves, but they can’t be making Omar Minaya’s job any easier. With the Mets sinking fast at 7 games under .500 and in fourth place in the NL East after Friday’s loss in Houston, Minaya had to be thinking about becoming a seller at the trade deadline. Sure, that would piss off many of us, but the farm system is […]
