Steven Matz Makes Grapefruit League Debut

You’ve heard the name before, but 2013 was the first real look at the Mets’ LHP prospect Steven Matz due to him missing significant time recovering from arm injuries. I recently named him as my Mets’ pitching prospect to watch in 2014, as he seems to be on a path to be named a top-five […]

What Can We Make Of Juan Centeno?

This paragraph in a Fangraphs.com article about the bias of Top 100 lists, started me thinking: “It’s interesting that Yadier Molina never made a top 100 list when you consider he was a semi-high pick with two brothers in the big leagues and never hit below .275 in a full-season minor league. The thing that […]

It’s Slow. It’s Boring. The Games Are Too Long. But Enough About Football…

Jose Valentin was ninety feet from home. Endy Chavez was on second representing the tying run. Pinch-runner Anderson Hernandez was on first. Bases loaded, 2 outs, bottom of the 9th. The Mets trailed 3-1. A base hit would tie it, a double would send us to the World Series against Detroit. 56,357 fanatics screamed and […]

An Ode To Whitestone Mike

You know when I was just a teenager, I was the drummer in a band we called Andromeda. Yes, I’m aware that some Swedish band has since swiped our name, but that’s okay as I heard they were heavy metal too. I also wrote dozens of songs, mostly on the backs of napkins at 3:00 […]

Well as we know predictions are like opinions – everybody has one, and of course mine were wrong. So now […]

What has been well-documented however, is just how much of an impact the Dark Knight of Gotham has had on the New York Mets organization and their fans alike. The mood surrounding this franchise has plunged […]

Beltran’s Cooperstown Headgear

I find it impossible to read an article or a forum about Carlos Beltran without there being some mention of “the curveball” or Adam Wainwright. That of course refers to Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS where, with the bases loaded and the winning run on first base with two outs in the ninth, Beltran […]

AL Defeats NL 3-0 In Mid-Summer Classic Amid Some Memorable Moments

Well the 2013 All-Star Game has come to a close as the American League defeated the National League by the score of 3-0. It was the lowest-scoring All-Star Game since 1990, when the AL earned a 2-0 victory. I loved the Opening Ceremonies and it was great to see Carlos Beltran and Mariano Rivera get some […]
