Kevin Kernan of the NY Post relays that Bay said he is a “lead […]
There are three words every baseball fan loves to hear. They bring us back to the time when we were kids and just wanted to have a catch with our friends. They provide warmth in our hearts and minds during an otherwise cold winter. They provide us with a sense of anticipation that the next season will be better than the last. Those three words are PITCHERS AND CATCHERS and as of today, the pitchers […]
Pitchers and catchers are arriving in Port St. Lucie, workouts will be starting shortly and soon exhibition games will be played in Florida. The Mets will be trying to erase the 2009 season and focus on winning in 2010. There a lot of question marks coming into the 2010 season for the Mets such as their rotation after Johan Santana, Daniel Murphy’s ability to be a productive 1st baseman both offensively and defensively, Luis Castillo […]
Mets’ imported arms, Ryota Igarashi and Hisanori Takahashi threw bullpens Monday, within hours of their arrivals. Igarashi is locked into the bullpen since he has a two-year major-league deal. He will be pairing with the over-worked lefty “Perpetual” Pedro Feliciano for the set up job. Takahashi, who spent 10 seasons with the Yomiuri Giants in Japan, is a lefthander on a minor-league contract, trying to get on the roster as the fifth starter—which he feels […]

I think that I’ve finally succumbed to Hot Stove fatigue… Information overload… I don’t know about you guys, but I’m so ready for spring training. I just want to move on already. This off season was overloaded with so much misinformation, overblown speculation and an endless stream of conflicting reports. Wow, it was mind-blowing to say the least, especially for Mets fans who I feel bore the brunt of it more-so than any other team. […]
Any day now, pitchers and catchers will begin reporting to spring training all across Florida and Arizona. In a few weeks, all teams, including our Mets, will begin their spring training games, and then less than two months from now, Johan Santana will likely be throwing the first live pitch for the Mets since last October. Usually around this time of year, once the Super Bowl has been played and sports docket is less than […]
Spring Training is upon us, and as pitchers and catchers are getting ready to report to Port St. Lucie, I just don’t feel any excitement so far. Usually at this time of year I’m looking forward to Spring Training and the upcoming baseball season, but so far I don’t feel any the usual excitement and anticipation stirring inside me. 2009 was just awful to be a fan of the New York Mets. Injuries and incompetence ran rampant and by […]
