Pelfrey’s Sinker Was Sharp, He’s Determined To Have A Big Year

Yesterday, Mike Pelfrey put his revamped sinker to the test and the early results were very encouraging. The big right-hander tossed two hitless innings yesterday in an intrasquad game at Digital Domain Park. He struck out two and walked one over his two hitless innings and even shattered Valentino Pascucci’s bat with a sinker. Pelf worked exclusively from […]

Will Going Back To Basics Help Bay Rediscover His Power?

With the Mets making the very necessary adjustments to Citi Field this offseason, Jason Bay is one of the guys the Mets feel will greatly benefit and just maybe he will become the player the Mets hoped to get two offseasons ago. Jason certainly thinks so and for a guy who has had two miserable […]

Don’t Appearances Count For Something?

An article by posted on February 24, 2012 0 Comments

I admit, it’s not my money so the Mets can do whatever they want with theirs. Even so, to pay upwards of $3,000 an hour to charter a helicopter to watch the Knicks last night was in poor form. This is a team in financial distress and they splurge like that? The statement was the […]

Maybe It Isn’t All Bad…

Despite the Mets lack of big offseason signings, the departure of Jose Reyes and the news that the payroll is being regulated strongly for the first time in years brings most Mets fans into a dark, dreadful place.

Good For Backman

An article by posted on November 7, 2011 0 Comments

I like that Wally Backman was finally offered the Mets’ Triple-A managerial job. It appeared Backman would take a bench coach job with Washington, which I said he should take because at the time the Mets didn’t offer him the Triple-A position. Well, the Mets did offer that job and it is good he stays […]

Thankfully The 2011 Mets Season Is Finally Over

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 […]

Mets On The Verge Of Climbing Mt. 500 Once Again

An article by posted on September 8, 2011 0 Comments

When the Mets fell to 61-68 I began to think about how bad this might get.  They had fought so hard all season long, and now the injuries were finally starting to take their toll on this young roster.  The guys like Turner, Tejada, and Gee among others were beginning to get exposed playing everyday […]
