Spring Notes

There’s a buzz around this morning about today’s batting order and it has nothing to do with where Luis Castillo or Jose Reyes will bat. Manager Jerry Manuel has put today’s starting pitcher Oliver Perez in the no. 2 hole in the order. Manuel wants to see Perez bunt and is apparently confident enough that […]

Shpigel: Tiebreakers Explained

Ben Shpigel of the New York Times has an excellent summary of the National League playoff tie breakers. Shpigel breaks down the four scenarios and tells us what happens when any of them comes to pass. Considering the weather reports I’m assuming he’s using the days Monday and Tuesday loosely.

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.

Mets Coaching Shuffle

In the wake of the firings of Willie Randolph, Rick Peterson and Tom Nieto the Mets coaching staff was obviously shuffled around. Sandy Alomar Sr. moved from third base to bench coach, Ken Oberkfell and Luis Aguayo were brought up from New Orleans to coach first and third respectively and Dan Warthen was brought up […]
