Lately, it seems the only thing the Mets excel at is finding ways to lose. Shaun Marcum had his first quality start as a Met, going 6.2 innings allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits while walking one and punching out three. He threw 96 pitches, 65 of which for strikes, however fell to 0-4 on the year in easily his best effort for the Amazin’s this season. After matching goose eggs with the [...]
We wont win this season. We wont compete this season. We wont be any good this season. Okay, now that that’s settled, lets go ‘Play Ball’ this season and see what happens. Opening Day is a little over one month away and when that first pitch is thrown, the Mets technically have just as good a chance as anyone to win. We Mets fans are an interesting bunch Always have been. In 1962 that other [...]
The season is winding down, and it’s time for me to pick out the FirstPitchMitch All-Stars. The FPM All-Stars are like the All-Madden team of baseball – they are the best of the best. When this team steps in to the stadium the skies open up, and the baseball gods marvel at their creation. Without further ado, I present the first ever FPM All-Stars… Catcher – Yadier Molina Yadier narrowly edged out Buster Posey simply [...]
There are Hall of Famers and then there are others who put up solid numbers for an entire career. One particular player compiled a 289 career BA and 2715 hits over 22 years. These numbers are not worthy of enshrinement in Cooperstown but he was a solid, consistent player. He was an All-Star and once won the NL Batting crown with a 324 average. As a first baseman, he made only 128 errors in 13,901 [...]
If the 2007 and 2008 seasons did one thing to me as a Mets’ fan, it’s that they have made me believe that if the worst can happen, the worst will happen. I’m not a pessimist by nature, but these Mets have turned me into one.
Losing 6-4 to the Cards isn’t the story. It’s how the Mets lost that’s darkening every fans mood. How can so much badly played baseball be packed into 9 innings! Perez returned to his bad self. Four decent innings, and that’s all she wrote. Loss of control, and then batting practice. Yadier owns us. We had a 4-0 lead that lasted till the fifth; we also had 10 hits till that point, and then added [...]
