After another poor outing Saturday the Mets have said that Oliver Perez will be removed from the starting rotation. Exactly where he will be going remains up in the air. There are two obvious options: move him to the bullpen or send him to the minors to work things out. Moving Perez to the bullpen […]

Rumor has it that the Mets have released Freddy Garcia. (I saw this blogged somewhere but don’t have a solid source yet.) After a terrible outing for Buffalo last night Garcia seemed to indicate that he may retire. His agent has denied the retirement rumor but it seems like that may not matter if no […]

I haven’t blogged too much this spring because there hasn’t been very much to write about. It’s been a relatively quiet spring. But now that we’re a week away from the regular season it’s time to start writing. The big news yesterday was the official coronation of Livan Hernandez as the fifth starter. This move […]
Livan Hernandez‘s chances at the fifth starter spot on the roster got stronger this morning as the Mets sent Jonathon Niese to minor league camp. A part of me was hoping they’d go with Niese and let him develop on the major league level. But with the way Hernandez has been throwing lately he is […]
Today may be the day that decided the fifth starter competition. Freddy Garcia threw 2 innings and allowed 7 hits. Those who saw it said he looked like he was throwing batting practice. He came in to relieve Livan Hernandez who had thrown 5 innings allowing 5 hits and 1 run while striking out 3. […]
I unfortunately have not had the opportunity to blog since last Thursday but if I could have I would have written about Johan Santana. When it was announced that he wouldn’t make his start on Friday I began to worry that something may be wrong. The earlier announcement that Santana would be skipping the WBC […]
