Mets By The Numbers: This Post Is Not For The Squeamish

Where would this team be without Matt Harvey? Is it safe to say that as of this moment, the only proven and legit core player under the age of 30 this team has is The Dark Knight of Gotham? I like Jon Niese a lot, but is he a core player? Or just an number […]

Wright Questionable For Tonight, But Not As Questionable As Collins’ Recent Moves

The bad news about the Mets keeps getting worse. David Wright, who was supposed to rest his stiff neck last night, was used as a pinch-hitter and now he’s questionable for tonight’s game at Miami, While it is conjecture Wright might have done something to aggravate his condition, the question can’t help be asked. Seriously, is winning […]

Mets Frustrate Yet Again In Loss To Marlins

What can be said about last night’s Mets game that hasn’t already been said about my high school prom. It was long, nobody could score and it turned out to be a huge waste of time. They say hindsight is 20/20, but my foresight in this one wasn’t so bad either. There were a few […]

Today’s Mets DUH Moment: Problem With Bullpen Is Because Of Rotation

Terry Collins believes that part of the problem with the team’s bullpen is because the starting rotation is failing to go deep into games. He says it has been putting an incredible strain on all of his relievers. Ya think? Aside from Matt Harvey and Jon Niese, who combined are averaging over six innings per […]

Marcum Was Disappointed With His Performance

Shaun Marcum didn’t exactly light up the radar guns in his first start back in Saturday’s 9-4 loss to the Phillies. He struggled with his command and quite frankly, judging I’d say he was lucky the Phillies only tagged him for three runs and not more in his four innings of work. I don’t believe […]
