Can Pedro Feliciano Be The Mets Setup Man?

An article by posted on March 25, 2010 0 Comments

Considering he’s relied upon so heavily in the Mets’ bullpen, Pedro Feliciano was given a nice little break recently. Now, with about a week and a half remaining in Spring Training, he’ll be used rather steadily as he aims to prepare himself for what will probably be another 80-appearance season in relief for the Amazin’s.

Call these the “Dog Days,” of Spring Training. With the regular season opener less than two weeks away it still resembles more mirage than oasis. Waiting for that ketchup, er, season to flow, grows with anticipation as another meaningless Grapefruit League tilt thankfully is capped. The storylines have been played out and one can only bang the […]

Yesterday was a big day for 20-year old RHP Jenrry Mejia as he continues to move closer toward locking up a spot in the 2010 Mets bullpen.

An article by posted on March 23, 2010 0 Comments

We now return you to ‘As The World Turns‘… That should be what each return from a commercial on SNY and WPIX says this exhibition season… I am becoming more concerned as the Mets continue to have more questions than answers each day spring training continues. What drama… We should be getting closer to making cuts. Instead the […]

Should Mets Sign John Smoltz?

Please don’t hold my pessimism against me. Usually I’m a “glass is half-full” kind of guy, but the 2010 Mets are essentially relying on the same starting rotation they had last year as it’s been painfully told and shown to us all winter long. Johan Santana, Mike Pelfrey, John Maine, Oliver Perez and perhaps either […]

Add a sidebar by the unsinkable Nelson (Molly Brown) Figueroa, and it has been business as usual at camp. Established players hone their skills and young […]

An article by posted on March 10, 2010 0 Comments

Watching Johan Santana’s understandably horrific spring training debut yesterday, something dawned in this Mets fans head.  No, there is no fear whatsoever that Johan is a different pitcher post-op, in fact, quite the contrary.  Based on his velocity and arm slot, I am positive he will have a monster year.  The reason I have absolutely […]
