Spring Training

Hernandez, Pelfrey Throw Simulated Games

Livan Hernandez threw a simulated game today. His fastball topped out at 81 mph. Hitters all around the league have started to calculate if their scheduled games against the Mets coincide with the 5th spot in the teams rotation. Brian Schneider said that in the last inning El Duque was working on control and not […]



Perez Is Hot

Oliver Perez had a good outing today. He allowed 1 run on 2 hits while striking out 5 and walking none in 5 innings of work. Now if only he could do that in September.



Pedro To Make First Spring Start

Pedro Martinez makes his first spring start today. It’s only the second time he’s been scheduled to play in a game. The first time, March 6, the game was rained out. Pedro has been filling his time by pitching simulated games and batting practice. It’s kind of late to be getting your first start but […]



El Duque Throwing

There’s finally a reason to feel optimistic about Orlando Hernandez. Due to the injury to his foot El Duque has been working on a new windup that eliminates his trademark high leg kick. The high leg kick was causing pressure on the hurt toe so it had to go in favor of a windup that […]



Delgado, Church, Anderson Ailing

The injury fairy visited the Mets yesterday. Her specific appointments were with Carlos Delgado, Ryan Church and Marlon Anderson. Delgado flew back to New York for an MRI which revealed a hip impingement. He’s expected to miss several days. I did a little research on what a hip impingement is and didn’t like what I […]



Santana To Start Today

Johan Santana will take the mound today in his first spring start for the Mets against the Cardinals at Tradition Field. I’ve been working from home lately which is fortunate for me because it will allow me to watch the game live on SNY. People are very excited about this but keep in mind that […]



Maine Starts Today

John Maine gets the start today against the St. Louis Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, FL. Maine won 15 games last year, his first full year as a starter, and he’ll be counted on to pitch more to the level of his first half of 2007 than his second half. If he can […]



El Duque Starting Slow

It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted but interestingly enough not much has happened. Carlos Beltran had a mini war of words through the media with Jimmy Rollins after Beltran said the Mets were the team to beat this year. Oliver Perez handed the Mets organization their first arbitration loss in 16 years. […]

Sánchez Mound Session Cut Short

According to Mark Hale’s blog on the New York Post‘s website Duaner Sanchez‘s first sessions throwing off a mound ended abruptly after only a few minutes with the right handed setup man ‘over behind the mound’. Stay tuned because this may get interesting. Manager Willie Randolph has already said that Aaron Heilman will assume the […]
