David Wright Is Riding The Pine Today

An article by posted on May 30, 2009 0 Comments

When the Mets take the field against Josh Johnson and the Marlins this afternoon at Citi Field, don’t look for David Wright at third base. Instead, just peer into the dugout and you’ll be able to see him chumming it up with last night’s hero, Omir Santos, who will be sitting on the bench too. […]

Most of you know by now, about how the recently called-up Fernando Martinez failed to run out a fair popup in front of the plate. It was a stupid mistake and he should have been hauling ass. After the game Jerry Manuel explained, “That was really an unfortunate thing for him, but it was a […]

Is The Timing Right For Fernando Martinez?

An article by posted on May 19, 2009 0 Comments

There’s a few stories out there today about how Ryan Church may be dangerously close to becoming a former Met. I’m not sure how to feel about that. One base running blunder should not be reason enough to get rid of someone and calling for his ouster. Would this even be a consideration if it […]

While it was no laughing matter for the Mets and their fans, even the Dodgers’ players themselves found some humor in the Mets horrific display last night. Redding gave us a quality start  and the Mets fought back to tie the game. And then … Two words - Third base. How does one miss it? I have […]

Wright Got Hot After Being Dropped In The Lineup

I took a look at David Wrights numbers this season and see how his splits looked since he was dropped from third in the batting order to fifth. These numbers do not reflect last nights game. Lets just ignore the one game where he batted cleanup and just compare his stats in the number three […]

This weekend, the Mets fly to the other coast to take on the San Francisco Giants in a four game series by the bay. The Mets and Giants have the exact same record of 18-15 coming into this series.  The Giants have been winning of late, taking six of their last ten games. At home, […]

Addition By Subtraction: The Oliver Perez Dilemma

What a difference a week and a half can make. Just ten days ago, we were all throwing stones, pointing fingers and placing blame. Omar should be fired. Wright should be traded. Delgado should be benched. Reyes should stop smiling so much. Things seemingly have changed almost overnight. The same team that was 10-13 and […]

Jo-han, Jo-han, A Pitcher’s Life For Me

An article by posted on April 25, 2009 0 Comments

Amazing. There is no better word to describe Johan Santana. Talk about a stopper – he’s the only guy in the Mets rotation who can win!  (And have a different handshake for every teammate!)  Now I have been following baseball since 1990, and I’ll admit I have never been a fan of pitching. Never gave it […]

Here Come the Men in Black … Galaxy “Pretenders”

I could spend the next 20 minutes writing about the Mets woes and how to fix them … but I won’t. Instead, I’d like to focus on something interesting and fun. As discussed on Wednesday’s telecast, the Mets will no longer be sporting the black “New York” jerseys. From now on, when the team wears […]
