You May Ask Yourself, Well, How Did I Get Here?

Last night, I had a dream. I had an awesome dream. The Mets were in first place, and a Mets pitcher not named Santana was leading all of baseball in ERA. This despite the fact that, as a team, they were scraping the bottom in batting average, not hitting for...

Curiously, What's Wrong With the Mets?

Understanding that hindsight is 20/20, much of the blame for the present travails of the Mets falls squarely on personnel decisions that should have been dealt with very differently. We will never now for sure which decisions can be attributed to whom, but Omar Minaya is the final arbiter on...

Game 6: Evoking Memories of 2009

Nationals 5 - Mets 2 I'm not trying to do a ton of game analysis this season. I try to get something with some thoughts on each game, but my work schedule doesn't allow me to post after games in a timely fashion. I keep it brief and to the...

Game 5: Ollie Being Ollie

Nationals 4 - Mets 3 One of the bigger questions for the Mets this year is which Oliver Perez will show up -- the good Ollie, who can be a dominating left-handed pitcher, or the bad Ollie, who doesn't have a clue where the ball is going when it leaves...

Game 4: Solid Pelfrey + 4 Homers = Win

Mets 8 - Nationals 2 All of the hand-wringing over Mike Pelfrey's spring numbers can come stop, at least for a few days, as Pelfrey delivered a solid 6 inning effort in his first game that counts. That split-fingered change he throws looks like it can be that effective off-speed...

Game 3: Niese Okay, Offense Not So Much

Marlins 3 - Mets 1 Jon Niese looked pretty good in his first start, but the Mets left their bats at home last night. I was impressed how much mileage Niese got out of his fastball and cutter last night. If he takes what he did last night and mixes...

Game 2: Forgetting the Maine

Marlins 7 - Mets 6 (10) There were several different story lines running through this one -- the offense was pretty bad, some dumb plays on the bases, and the Marlins bullpen looks a little shaky in the early going. The biggest story, however, was John Maine's struggles. He lacked...

Low Expectations May Be the Elixer For the first time in several campaigns, no one picks the Mets the win the NL East and few pick them for the NL Wild Card. Perhaps we have been blessed by the lowering of expectations? For those of us who prefer to see...

Mets Fans Understand What's Relevant

Thanks to George Vecsey for yet another condescending piece on the Mets from the New York Times. I used to enjoy the Times' sports coverage once upon a time, but there is a certain arrogance to it now that makes them better suited to Yankees coverage. That's fine, too, whatever...

Season Preview: The Bullpen

The news is out on the latest round of cuts, and they pretty well clarify the bullpen the Mets are going north with: Francisco Rodriguez (R) Ryota Igarashi (R) Jenrry Mejia (R) Sean Green (R) Fernando Nieve (R) Hisanori Takahashi (L) Pedro Feliciano (L) It's somewhat surprising that Kiko Calero...

In Our Prayers

I was saddened to read about the passing of Steve Keane's mom on his The Eddie Kranepool Society blog. I've had the good fortune to talk Mets with Steve at a couple of different events. He's a class act himself, and reading about his mom at the above link you...
