Cameron/Sheffield Trade Dead

It seems the Mike Cameron for Gary Sheffield deal is dead. I guess it’s all for the best. Did you hear Sheffield’s tirade about being traded yesterday? I don’t blame him for feeling that way but if that’s the way he responds to a rumor then I’d hate to see how he reacts to an […]

Mets and Yanks to Make a Deal?

Joel Sherman reports in today’s New York Post that the Mets and Yankees are discussing a blockbuster deal the centerpiece of which is Mike Cameron for Gary Sheffield. I’m like the idea of this trade depending on what spare parts are built into it. Cameron would get a chance to play his natural and preffered […]

Good Win

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. Good show last night. Víctor Zambrano had another good start. This time he got some good run support and was credited with the win.

Tough Stretch Coming

No days off until the All-Star break, 10 out of 13 games against divisional opponents. Let’s get it on! Reminds me of The Blues Brothers: It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we’ve got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark and we’re wearing sunglasses. Hit it.

Another Game Blown By The Bullpen

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. Víctor Zambrano had another good start last night but the bullpen blew it for him. The guilty party this time was Aaron Heilman, who had a good streak of 13 scoreless innings spanning 11 appearances since moving into the bullpen in mid May. Heilman’s bad outing […]

Beer Leaguer Clowns Around

Jason Weitzel of Beer Leaguer, a blog plugged as “alternative viewpoints on the Philadelphia Phillies, gives a partial analysis of last night’s game from a Phillies perspective. A nice job but what brought me to mention it here was the amusing and perhaps insulting (from a Mets perspective) headline: “Clowns strike first: Mets top Phils”. […]

Don’t Get Too Excited

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. The Mets beat the Phillies 8-5 last night. There were several good hitting performances. Jose Reyes had 3 hits and manufactured a run in the first inning. Carlos Beltran and Doug Mientkiewicz had 2 hits each (including a homer by Mientkiewicz). Brian Daubach hit his first […]
