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....

A Fifth Is Down the Hatch

Little has been made of the Mets ascent to first place in the NL East simply because this is a team that is constantly overanalyzed and ripped asunder to the negative. Early spring twinges in the left arm of Johan...

25 Games In

Now that we're caught up on all the games, I thought I'd take a few moments to share some random thoughts on the first 25 games of the season. The Backup Catcher Remember how popular Ramon Castro was here a...

Some Thoughts with a Week to Go

I watched last night's game against the Orioles and came away impressed by several things I saw. Although Oliver Perez still wasn't throwing his best fastball, he certainly looked much better than he did his first couple of outings back...

More Thoughts on the Bench

In many ways, the battle for bench and bullpen spots have been the most compelling of the spring for the Mets, particularly since no one really seemed inclined to battle Livan Hernandez all that hard for the fifth starter's job....

Out of Left Field?

I promise to get to the conclusions for the 2009 Mets previews series, but I wanted to weigh in on some of the weekend's news. The biggest news was Jerry Manuel's pronouncement that Daniel Murphy was the Mets everyday LF...

Preliminary Thought on the Mets -- Position Players

Yesterday I shared a few initial things that I'm paying attention to this spring from the 2009 Mets starting rotation and bullpen. Today we'll take a look at the position players, tomorrow the bench. Catcher Brian Schneider and Ramon Castro...

Thoughts of Spring

It's been a rough winter where I live in west central Connecticut. Seems like I've been shoveling snow every other day since December, and as I write this my outside thermometer is registering a balmy 6.7 degrees Fahrenheit. However, now...

Winter Meetings Day One

I remember previous seasons reading complaints that Omar Minaya was impatient and too quick to overpay for the player or players he wanted. Now there is criticism about how none of the holes on this team have been filled yet....

Demolition Man, Part IV - The Outfield

In many ways, the Mets' outfield is the part of their team with the most question marks. Despite the string of injuries suffered by Mets outfielders, though, it's the place where they're most likely to stand pat this winter. Fernando...

Mets 08 Lament (with an eye to 09)

The second guessers are coming out in droves. As if its not bad enough to have experienced the pain and suffering of the past two Septembers, we now have to listen to a laundry list of reasons and less than...

An Uncomfortable Win

Game 112: Mets 6 - Padres 5 Billy Wagner's season has featured huge ups and downs, and the ninth inning has been a nervous time for Mets fans. Now that Billy is on the shelf for two weeks it has...

As the Game Rolls On

ALL-STAR FOLLIES The All-Star break has come and gone and the greatest fear of all Mets fans was front and center. Wags had the game and the World Series home field advantage on his arm and blew the opportunity. Had...

Keeping Those Good Feelings Coming x10

Game 96: Mets 10 - Reds 8 With all due respect to Twins fans who come to this site and feel the need to defend their ex-ace, there is little doubt that Johan Santana has been a disappointment this season....

A Blast from the Past

Game 51: Mets 7 - Marlins 6 (12) The script for last night's game was straight out of 2006. When someone faltered, someone else picked him up. What a concept! Oliver Perez was handed leads of 2-0, 3-1 and 4-2,...
