Still No Expectations

Matthew Cerrone at Metsblog wrote a post this morning that I had intended to write. The gist of the post is that the season is fraught with challenges and losing two of three to the Yankees over the weekend presents one such challenge. That challenge is: how will this team rebound from the adversity of […]



Optimism After 10 Games

I know it’s only 10 games into a 162 game season but I must say that it was nice waking up this morning in a world where the Mets are in first place. Starting the season winning 2 out of 3 from the Washington Nationals (who are 4-4 since that series) was exciting for Mets […]

The ARod Apology Letter

Much was made out of Alex Rodriguez‘s handwritten apology letter to Yankees fans earlier this week. Everything I read about it was negative. Many called for ARod to have done an apology press conference instead of a letter. But while a press conference would have been better do you really think it would have turned […]



More Fun

I wrote a post last season when the Mets played the Yankees last year abut how baseball was fun again for at least a couple of nights. That’s how I feel about the two game set the two teams just completed at Yankee Stadium. Curtis Granderson returned to Yankee Stadium and belted a home run […]



Can’t Criticize Murph

Daniel Murphy missed the first 2 games of the season to witness the birth of his first child and spend a couple of days on paternity leave. Yesterday he took a beating from Boomer Esiason, Craig Carton and Mike Francesa for doing it. All of them basically saying “you’re a professional so go do you […]



Mets Are 2 for 2 On DL Stints

The Mets may be 0-2 in the standings but they’ve had success at one thing: injuries. The Mets lead the league in putting people on the disabled list during the regular season after they put a second player there in as many days. Just one day after announcing that Bobby Parnell has an elbow injury […]



Parnell On The Shelf

Meet the new season. Same as the old season.

Bobby Parnell had an MRI after complaining of tightness in his forearm after yesterday’s game. The MRI revealed a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right arm. This is the same type of injury that lead to Tommy John surgery for Matt Harvey. Parnell will rest for 2 weeks before being re-evaluated but it’s certainly possible he will suffer the same fate as Harvey.

Davis Hiding Injury Irksome

I root for Ike Davis. Like any other member of the Mets I want him to succeed. But then the New York Post breaks a story about how Davis hid an injury and it upsets me. The injury, to his oblique, occurred while he was struggling early last season and was on the verge of […]
