Stop Putz-ing Around

What a lousy way to lose a game and waste a good (but not great) start by Livan Hernandez. Hernandez followed up his complete game against Washington last week by holding the Pirates to 3 runs in 5.2 innings last night. It was not his best start of the year but it was enough to […]

Scheduled Starters For Atlanta Series

Yesterday’s rainout changed the Mets pitching schedule for the coming week. Here’s the expected starters for the two game set against Atlanta. Tonight – John Maine (1-2, 5.40) vs. Javier Vazquez (2-2, 3.38), 7:10 p.m., SNY. Tuesday – Livan Hernandez (1-1, 6.75) vs. Kenshin Kawakami (1-3, 7.06), 7:10 p.m., SNY.



Tonight’s Lineup 4/28/2009

Carlos Delgado‘s sore hip and Luis Castillo‘s back spasms will keep the regular right side of the infield out of the lineup tonight. Also out of the lineup is Daniel Murphy. I find this curious. If the team is committed to Murphy in left field then why has he been on the bench for 3 […]



Freddy We Hardly Knew You

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 […]



Pitching Matchups for Marlins Series

Monday – Anibal Sanchez (1-1, 2.50) vs. John Maine (0-2, 7.47), 7:10 p.m., SNY. Tuesday – Ricky Nolasco (1-2, 6.86) vs. Livan Hernandez (1-1, 7.31), 7:10 p.m., SNY. Wednesday – Josh Johnson (2-0, 2.20) vs. Johan Santana (3-1, 0.70), 1:10 p.m., SNY.



Today’s Crazy Lineup

Jerry Manuel is trying so hard to keep Luis Castillo out of the two hole in the batting order. Today’s lineup is mostly a crap shoot with the jackpot being to break out of the slump the team is in. So why not move the hot hitting Castillo to the two hole for just one […]



Pitching Matchups For St. Louis

The St. Louis Cardinals have reworked their rotation due to their rainout yesterday. Here’s the latest pitching matchups for the Mets visit this week: Tuesday – Oliver Perez (1-1, 7.84) vs. Todd Wellemeyer (1-1, 4.50), 8:15 p.m., SNY. Wednesday – John Maine (0-1, 7.20) vs. Joel Piniero (2-0, 5.40), 8:15 p.m., SNY and ESPN. Thursday […]
