Glavine Falls to Braves Again

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. Tom Glavine pitched 6 great innings last night. Unfortunately the 7th wasn’t anywhere near as good as Glavine lost to his onld team again. But of even greater concern was the Mets not being able to hit anything against Tim Hudson. Let’s hope they can turn […]

Danny Graves: Free Agent

The Reds cut closer Danny Graves yesterday. He’s more or less been stinking up the joint this season but had 41 saves last year. I have to believe that someone doesn’t lose their stuff that quickly and that if he’s really that bad it’s a mental block or a small mechanical breakdown that can be […]

The Wright Call?

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. How far out of the baseline can a player go without being called out? Second base umpire Jeff Nelson showed us last night. With one out in the eighth inning and the bases loaded Doug Mientkiewicz hit the ball to Braves first baseman Julio Franco who […]

Pitching and/or Defense?

The world is up in arms about published pictures of Saddam Hussein in his underwear. His lawyers said “In our opinion this is a violation of all international agreements and human dignity”. People are upset because the pictures could have broken the Geneva Convention. While I agree that publishing these pictures is not right, I […]

Subway Series Stinks

The big Subway Series starts tonight as the Mets take on the Yankees for a three game weekend series that’s sure to be exciting for players and fans alike. Or so the MLB hype department and media would have you think. The bottom line is that the subway series stinks. Why? For one thing it […]

Star Wars Bound

Sorry for no real post today. I had a late morning and am going to Star Wars this afternoon. Aint’ life grand? In the meantime talk amongst yourselves. I’ll give you some topics. Aaron Heilman in the bullpen. Víctor Zambrano starting against the Yankees. Pedro Martinez got a cortisone shot. Discuss.

Koo, Koo, Ka-choo

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. I haven’t had a chance to read very much today but I’m sure that many people are questioning Willie Randolph’s call to have Dae-Sung Koo come in to pitch the 9th inning instead of Braden Looper. I actually have no problem with this call outside of […]

Cameron in Center?

According to Lee Jenkins in this morning’s New York Times former Mets center fielder and current Mets right fielder Mike Cameron offered his center field services to Willie Randolph should Randlph choose to give current center fielder Carlos Beltran a day off. Randolph commented about this by saying “What Mike did says a lot about […]
