Wright Needs A New Six Pack

There are many injury worries in Mets camp this year (which seems to be par for the course for recent Mets camps) but the one that seems to be talked about the most lately is the one suffered by David Wright. Wright was in New York so team doctors could get a better look and […]



Almost Spring

The agony (if you’re a Jets fan) and ecstasy (if you’re a Giants fan) of the football season is now behind us. With the Giants Superbowl victory on Sunday and parade yesterday the NFL news cycle is now complete. We can now start thinking about baseball. I’m not one to analyze rosters through the offseason […]



Bullpen Stronger, Leadoff Still Weak

The Mets made a flurry of moves last night in the aftermath of Jose Reyes‘s departure. The truth is that these are moves that would likely have been made anyway but as Mets fans the Reyes parting is the watershed event of this offseason. Everything the Mets do now will be compared (by most, anyway) […]



Goodbye, Jose!

I was going to write something about the Jets today (and I still may) but then the Jose Reyes news broke and I feel I must comment about it. I suppose Reyes’ departure is no surprising but that doesn’t change the emotional reactions we’re all going through over this news. Yes, he’s probably the best […]



Player Shuffle In Wake Of Wright Injury

News came yesterday afternoon that David Wright has a stress fracture in his aching back. He’ll be out at least 10 days but will likely not need surgery. Almost immediately after hearing the news I thought the Mets would move Daniel Murphy to third base and call up Nick Evans to play first base. Turns […]



Ike to DL, Muprhy To 1B

After further examination Ike Davis has been placed on the DL with an ankle sprain and bone bruise. Fernando Martinez was recalled from AAA Buffalo to take Davis’s roster spot. Daniel Murphy will move over to first base and leave second base to Justin Turner and Willie Harris. Though Murphy has experience at first base […]



Davis To Have MRI

The Mets have sent Ike Davis back to New York for an MRI on his ailing leg. Davis injured the leg last night in when he collided with David Wright while both were attempting to make a play on a popup in front of the mound. This is both bad news and good news. The […]



KRods Option Will Kick In, Get Over It

Last night manager Terry Collins used Francisco Rodriguez in the 8th inning of a loss to the Phillies. The second guessing began almost immediately. Why use your closer in a non-save situation? Why waste an appearance that could have contractual ramifications? (KRod has a $17.5 million option that kicks in if he makes 55 appearances.) […]



Too Early For Pelfrey Trade Talk

Mike Pelfrey has had a less than stellar start to the 2011 season. In his first two starts he’s pitched 6.1 innings allowing 12 hits, 11 earned runs and 5 walks while striking out only 3 batters. His ERA is 15.63. Before the season started many said that in the likely event that the Mets […]
