Just When You Think It Can't Get Any Worse

I received an email last night from The New Yorker magazine plugging an article about Fred Wilpon that would be coming out today. To be honest with you, I expected a fairly boring read with the standard denials of foreknowledge...

Loving the One You're With

Thanks to this post by Rob Neyer I came across this one on David Schoenfield's SweetSpot blog about the difficulty in teams producing homegrown pitchers that win at least 50 games for their franchise. The criteria was that the pitcher...

Opening Week Observations

I was sitting in front of my television set yesterday doing my best to enjoy yesterday's home opener. Several times during the game I found myself muttering "this team sucks" in frustration with yet another failure to deliver a big...

Pelfrey's No Ace, But We Already Knew That

It was kind of heartening to see the fight that the Mets showed tonight in Philadelphia, although I most decidedly not one who believes in moral victories. Still, I know the big story from this game will be another ugly...

Quick Hits 4-6-2011

Back when I had more time to do this blog I frequently used to post my reaction to items I came across in my reading. I had a couple of extra minutes today, so... Mike Pelfrey as potential trade bait....

Season Preview: Armed or Just Dangerous?

In Part One of our season preview we put forth our thoughts on the financial situation surrounding the Mets. In part 2 we'll take a look at the team that's been assembled and what can be reasonably expected from them....

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...

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...

Season Preview: Starting Pitching

Before I get into the meat of this piece I'd like to offer a quick apology for the sporadic posting. The "part-time job" that I started working early this month has developed into a 6 day a week more than...

Close Games an Early Concern

Game 9: Padres 6 - Mets 5 Sorry to be so late with this. I've been pushing myself way too hard lately, and wound up passing out on the couch last night. I'm tempted to make something out of the...

Opening Sputter

Game 7: Padres 6 - Mets 5 I was driving around listening to this game on the radio while running some errands last night. When I got home I sat down and tried to write this piece and just didn't...

No Style Points Tonight

Game 2: Mets 9 - Reds 7 I had an ugly feeling of déjà vu watching the last few innings of this one. I can't say all that surprised, though, particularly by Frankie Rodriguez in the ninth. I've seen him...

Your Official 2009 Keys to the Mets, Part 1

As I mentioned Thursday, I think there are too many variables in place to make any effort to predict what might happen this season a crapshoot. I can see this team anywhere from around .500 to well into the 90s...

Two Weeks to Go -- Starting Pitching

Two weeks from today the Mets will be in Cincinnati playing a baseball game that will count in the standings. Sometime between now and then the 25-man roster will be finalized. As of today it looks like most of the...

Pelfrey Looks Strong

Sorry for being a little sporadic on the posting this week. I'm buried in work. I had a chance after dinner tonight to sit down in front of the TV and spend some quality time with this afternoon's game that...

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...

Stayin' Alive

Game 160: Marlins 6 - Mets 1 (Friday) Game 161: Mets 2 - Marlins 0 (Saturday) And now the season comes down to Oliver Perez on short rest. Somehow that seems fitting. Of course Johan Santana was all that and...

Four Omar - Five to Go

Upon the revelation that Omar Minaya is about to be extended four more years, it is time to reflect on the still to be determined 2008 Mets campaign. Nothing is more obvious than the high quality pitching delivered start in...

It Doesn't Matter Who's To Blame

Game 155: Braves 7 - Mets 6 We're reading a lot about the bullpen today. While they certainly deserve their fair share of culpability, the Mets haven't gone 4-6 over their last ten games -- played against the two bottom...

Insanity Reigns

Game 150: Nationals 1 - Mets 0 (Tuesday) Game 151: Mets 9 - Nationals 7 (Wednesday) Sorry I didn't check in yesterday. I made a couple of attempts to write about Tuesday night's game, but felt I was just rehashing...

Winning Ugly Never Looked So Good

Game 145: Mets 13 - Nationals 10 I have little inclination to dwell on the relative aesthetic merits of any September win. I know there are those who question how a team that gives up 18 runs in two games...

Pelfrey

Game 132: Mets 9 - Astros 1 In many different ways we've talked about the strides Mike Pelfrey has made this season. As I began my long trek out to Shea yesterday afternoon I realized that I was excited about...

Pelfrey Finishes

Game 127: Mets 7 - Braves 3 For the second time this week a Mets starting pitcher gave the entire bullpen a night off. After managing and surviving his sixth inning hiccup, Pelfrey needed only a combined 25 pitches to...

I Liked This Ending Better

Game 122: Mets 2 - Pirates 1 One run lead in the ninth. Playing against the Pirates. Aaron Heilman on the mound carrying the hopes of both Mets fans and a starter who had pitched effectively. Sound familiar? This one...

Game: Lousy. A Chance To Spend An Afternoon With Your Fellow Bloggers: Priceless.

Game 117: Marlins 8 - Mets 2 I went to Shea for this game as part of a group of bloggers that were the guests of MetsBlog's Matt Cerrone. Zoƫ Rice has some pictures and a nice write up on...

Chasing First Again

Game 108: Marlins 7 - Mets 5 Sorry to be so late with this. My food poisoning from early in the week has proven to be the gift that keeps giving, as I struggle to shake off the effects and...

No Letdown

Game 103: Mets 7 - Cardinals 2 St. Louis may be struggling recently, but they were ten games over .500 when they rolled into town and are always a tough team to beat. Given all of the brouhaha from the...

It Could Have Been Worse, I Guess

Game 97: Reds 5 - Mets 2 (Friday) Game 98: Reds 7 - Mets 2 (Saturday) Game 99: Mets 7 - Reds 5 (Sunday) Going into this series I wouldn't have called a 2-2 split a bad result. The Reds...

The Mighty Pelf

Interesting pair of articles on Mike Pelfrey yesterday. The first one (link purloined from Matthew Artus' Always Amazin' blog) was Beyond the Box Score's Peter Bendix' The Emergence of Mike Pelfrey? The question mark at the end of the title...

Mets and Pelfrey Go Into Break on a High

Game 95: Mets 7 - Rockies 0 I posted a piece from Barry Duchan earlier today where Barry writes about how surprised he was by the emergence of Mike Pelfrey. Unlike Barry, I've always thought Pelfrey had the stuff to...

Mike Pelfrey

OK, So I Was Wrong... There probably isn't a Mets fan, blogger, or beat writer who hasn't at one time or another in the past few years pointed out what an awful trade the Mets made when they sent Scott...

It's More than Astrology for Pelfrey

Game 90: Mets 7 - Giants 0 When Mike Pelfrey pitched the Mets to a victory in Colorado June 22, I posted some stats that clearly showed that he turned a corner with his terrific late-May start against the Dodgers....

Mighty Mike

Game 85: Mets 11 - Cardinals 1 This will, of necessity, have to be a quick post. I've got a bunch of people waiting for me to burn some burgers for them. First of all, I'd like to wish all...

Win One, Lose One

Game 78: Mets 15 - Yankees 6 (Afternoon at Yankee Stadium) Game 79: Yankees 9 - Mets 0 (Evening at Shea Stadium) I was talking to my mom after the afternoon victory. While I was happy with the effort, I...

Another Step for Mike Pelfrey

Game 74: Mets 3 - Rockies 1 I wrote the following back in March: Mike Pelfrey It's amazing how some pundits and fans have totally written off a 24-year-old with a fastball you can't teach. I still think the winning...

The Angels Series

Game 69: Mets 9 - Angels 6 (Monday) Game 70: Angels 6 - Mets 1 (Tuesday) Game 71: Mets 5 - Angels 4 (10) (Wednesday) With all of the excitement over changing managers I neglected to post on the first...

Slide Snapped at Five

Game 64: Mets 5 - Diamondbacks 3 (13) On April 15, Mike Pelfrey picked up his second win of the season vs. the Nationals. Almost two months later, he's still waiting for his third. Now, he certainly hasn't been perfect,...

A Win

Game 50: Mets 5 - Marlins 3 I made it through a Mets game last night with hardly any urges to throw something at the TV, and still feeling that life was worth living when it was all over. I...

The Ship Sinks Deeper

Game 49: Marlins 7 - Mets 3 These games are starting to blur together, aren't they? The Mets are losing games for so many of the same reasons, it's hard to tell these losses apart. The Mets haven't won a...

Worse Than Mediocre?

Game 44: Braves 11 - Mets 4 Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them. -- Joseph Heller, Catch 22 The above quote from one of the greatest books of the...

Game 39

Game 39: Nationals 1 - Mets 0 (Played Thursday May 15) For archive purposes here are the links to the Mets.com wrap and my updated pitching stats for Mike Pelfrey. I still don't have much to say on this game....

Arroy-no

Game 34: Reds 7 - Mets 1 I started writing about this game last night after it was over, but it felt like a was writing version 117B of the same post I've written so often over the past 12...

Close, And Then Not So Much

Game 28: Diamondbacks 10 - Mets 4 The Mets staged a nice comeback in this one to make it a game, but then Duaner Sanchez comes into the game and can't get anyone out. Then Scott Schoeneweis comes in with...

Mets Can't Pull Off the Sweep

Game 17: Phillies 5 - Mets 4 It was cheering in a way that the Mets fought back from a 4-0 deficit, and again that they made Brad Lidge sweat a little in the ninth. Still, when it was all...

Pelfrey Dominates, Sanchez Returns

Game 12: Mets 6 - Nationals 0 For one day at least, life is good again. After looking like a lost soul this spring, Mike Pelfrey has looked like a legitimate pitcher in his first two starts of the year....

Reprieve

Game 7: Mets 8 - Phillies 2 I'd hardly call this win over the Phillies an unqualified artistic success, but there were good things in what was certainly a sanity win for Mets fans. The offense still left a little...
