Put It In The Books! The Mets 2011 season is finally over! What can I say about the Mets 2011 season except thankfully it has finally come to an end. Coming into this season I didn’t expect much and in turn we didn’t get much from this team Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins put out there this year. I know there are people who will for some reason say this was a good season. I [...]
For the past few seasons it was believed that Mets starter Mike Pelfrey had the goods to be a top of the rotation type starter. Last season he had his best season as a pro as he won 15 games against just 9 losses. His career low 3.66 ERA and dominance for most of the season warranted thoughts that he had finally put it together. Mets fans had dreams of slotting him behind Santana as the number 2 starter. [...]
It’s rare for me to get so annoyed that I ever have an issue grasping for the right words but when you’ve been pushed to the edge of reason, anything can happen and all bets are off. I can honestly say that some of my fellow Met fans lately have had me wanting to grab them by the neck and squeeze. Oh if only that would only do the trick. First, I’m going to lay [...]
Last night was just another example of Mike Pelfrey being Mike Pelfrey. After cruising through the San Diego lineup for the first five innings allowing just one run, it all came crashing down on the right-hander in the sixth. The 27-year-old allowed three runs on four sharply hit balls and a sac fly. The Amazin’s so called “ace” left after 6 1/3 yielding 9 hits, allowing 4 runs (all earned), 2 walks, while striking out 4, against a lackluster [...]
With the Mets 7 1/2 games behind the wild card leading Atlanta Braves, but still having two months to go in the season, I’m not one to give up and give in concerning the Amazin’s playoff chances here in 2011. After the trade of closer Francisco Rodriguez the night of the All-Star game, and then just a few short weeks later with the trade of the resurgent Carlos Beltran many saw this as this team [...]
Over the last month or so, the Carlos Beltran rumors have heated up to the max. It has quickly became a “when” Mets deal Carlos Beltran instead of “if”. Ken Rosenthal reports the Red Sox and Phillies have been the most persistent thus far. That may be true and I’m not discounting that, however I don’t believe Carlos Beltran will be in either uniform come August 31st. The Red Sox lack that true “blue chip” [...]
Today the Mets made top headlines regarding reports surfacing across the internet. The first, Jose Reyes is out 3 weeks with a hamstring injury. The second, Mets are fielding calls on Carlos Beltran. Last but not least, the Mets are supposedly entering into “secret talks” with Jose Reyes team of agents – that however was later shot down by Reyes’ agents. Some of you may remember the article I wrote earlier in the season where [...]
Update June 21, 2011 5:30 PM According to Michael Baron over at MetsBlog.com, Sandy Alderson spoke at CitiField today with reporters and according to SNY producer Matt Dunn, he said he reached out to the agents of Jose Reyes recently, but were told he will not negotiate a new contract until after the season. I find this interesting considering the story of Reyes having spoken to Scott Boras in some capacity was brought to mention by the [...]
According to Mike Puma in today’s New York Post, Carlos Beltran has expressed his desire to see Jose Reyes in a Mets uniform in 2012 and beyond. After the Mets scorched the Pirates for seven runs over the final three innings of yesterday’s 7-0 victory, Beltran had this to say about the front office and his teammate: “They should make the effort and try to sign him, for sure. He grew up in this organization. [...]
