Don’t Blame Hernández

The Mets wre tied going into the 9th inning last night in Houston. That’s when Roberto Hernandez entered the game with the mission of preserving the tie so the Mets bats would have a chance to win it in the 10th (yeah, right). Hernandez ended up losing the game. It’s easy to be upset at […]

Mets Salvage One

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. The Mets salvaged one game from their series against the Rockies last night. To lose 2 out of 3 at Coors was not a good thing and the team should be ashamed of themselves. Víctor Zambrano (7 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 SO) […]

Dayn Perry Suggests Sexston to the Mets’s Dayn Perry has an article on 5 trades that need to happen by sunday’s trade deadline. One of thos 5 trades is the Mets acquisition of Mariners first baseman Richie Sexson.

Larry Freakin’ Brown

The latest rumors sound a lot more serious and an announcement appears imminent so it’s time I sounded off about the Larry Brown to the Knicks situation. My feelings here are not that complex and can probably be summed up in one word: history. History as in Pat Riley. When Riley took over the Knicks […]

Alfonso Soriano

With the production the Mets are getting at second base this year it’s no wonder they’ve come up as a possible landing point for former Yankee and current Texas Rangers second baseman Alfonso Soriano in recent trade rumors. The combination of Kazuo Matsui, Miguel Cairo, Chris Woodward, Marlon Anderson and whoever else the team has […]

Another Bad Loss

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. Remember what I said yesterday about giving the Mets a pass on their loss to the Rockies the night before? Nevermind. They couldn’t get it done again last night against the worst team in the league. This is a team you must beat if you’re going […]

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. I’ve said many times in this space that one of the keys to the Mets becoming a better team is to not only be able to play the better teams well but also to be able to consitantly beat the worse teams. Last night they proved […]

That’s What I’m Talking About!

Click here for a recap of yesterday’s game. The Mets controlled the whole game yesterday. Scored first, held the lead, scored some more and never gave up (even when Danny Graves was pitching). Kazuhisa Ishii (4 H, 0 ER) did a good job of protecting his spot in the rotation for now despite walking 5 […]


Sorry for not having posted the last several days. Things at work have gotten a bit busy with a big project nearing an all too agressive deadline preventing me from posting more regularly than I have in the last week and a half or so. In the second half the Mets have managed to get […]

Good Start to Second Half

The Mets opened the season last night with a good win against a good team beating the Braves, the wild card leader, 6-3. There were a few good performances last night: Mike Piazza hit a game winning 3 run homer. Carlos Beltran went 4 for 4. David Wright hit 2 homers. Kris Benson had a […]
