Mets Beginning To Meet Expectations, Even Alou

The Mets seem to be heading into the All Star break on a high note. They’re finally beginning to hit expectations. They’ve won six of their last seven games and have cut the Phillies lead to 1.5 games. They seem to be hitting on all cylinders right now despite their starting second baseman and corner […]

Vote Wright

Mets third baseman David Wright did not make the All-Star team but his chances aren’t dead yet. MLB is taking votes for the fans to name the last member of both teams and Wright is among the the 5 nominees for the National League. You can vote now on MLB’s site or use the handy […]

What’s Going On With Church’s Head?

Warthen Interview

Dan Warthen was interviewed on the air during the third inning of tonight’s game. Here’s some of the points he made.: Pedro Martinez arm strength is good. His stuff is good. We just have to keep pumping him up. He’s physically fine. It’s just “between his ears”. Some work on Aaron Heilman‘s mechanics have got […]

Video: Sanchez Hit By Line Drive

Here’s video of Duaner Sanchez getting hit by the line drive last night. It was really scary to watch. The ball came very close to hitting him on the kneecap and that may have ended his career. Sanchez said before tonight’s game that he’s healthy. I imagine Jerry Manuel will only use him if absolutely […]
