Game time is 3:05 PM today, so if you’re at work, get online to program the DVR (or wait for the replay on SNY at 7:30 PM). Here is the lineup against Roy Halladay:
MetsToday reader “NormE” had this to say in the comments section: Joe, if your looking for perspective, how about comparing 2010?s opening day roster with this year’s roster? There’s been quite a bit of housecleaning and, in the field, position- by-position the Mets look better off (except left field). The bullpen, on paper looks sounder. [...]
If you have been visiting MetsToday for a while, then yesterday’s changes may have caught you a bit by surprise.
Over the past week or so we’ve been experimenting with some things here at MetsToday and I’d appreciate your feedback. Specifically: 1. How do you like the new comment system? What in particular do you like / not like? 2. Did you appreciate the inclusion of videos in the posts last week? Would you like [...]
Marty Boryczewski August 17, 1972 – September 11, 2001 Teammate, friend You will always be remembered ** UPDATE ** Loyal MetsToday reader gsparber has provided this gallery of photos from a 9/11 ceremony on Long Island. Thanks, Gary.
Today is the 30th anniversary of the death of Thurman Munson. Yes, I know this is a Mets blog but it’s also my blog, and “Thurm” was, hands-down, my favorite baseball player of all time — and the reason I chose to don the “tools of ignorance”. (John Stearns and Jerry Grote are also high [...]
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Mets now lead MLB in press conferences since the All-Star Break. Elias also announced that today’s conference held by Minaya broke the all-time record for most apologies in a 48-hour period. Well done, men!
In a remarkable turn of events that may change the course of American history, it has been discovered that journalists Robert Woodward and Carl Bernstein spilled the beans on Watergate as part of a devious plan to become President of the United States and/or gain Presidential Cabinet positions. According to recently found notes from an [...]
Mets 7 Rockies 3 And for a followup routine, the Mets played a baseball game … The excitement in Flushing began with the firing of Tony Bernazard, an event that closed with a squabble between Omar Minaya and Adam Rubin. For an encore, the Mets held another press conference to speak about the first (but [...]
… the more they stay the same. That’s the saying, right? If you saw this printed somewhere today, I bet following snippet would not be surprising: This ship has been off course for three seasons, not because of a lack of resources, but because of a lack of judgment. The Mets began the year with [...]
Perhaps the most disturbing thing about the Tony Bernazard “situation” is not Bernazard’s actions, but the Mets’ feeble, wishy-washy, inactive response. They have neither stood behind their VP of Player Development, nor have they fired him, nor have they even put him on some kind of a suspension. Their response to the multiple allegations toward [...]
Mets 9 Reds 7 Jeff Francoeur and the Mets are now 2-0. The Beltranless, Delgadoless, and Reyesless offense exploded for six runs in the third and fourth frames, and later tacked on another pair of much-needed insurance runs as the Mets beat the Reds, won the three-game series, and head into the All-Star Break with [...]
In our latest edition of Window Shopping, we look at the Washington Nationals. Since they’re on a pace to threaten the ’62 Mets record for losing — and win the Bryce Harper sweepstakes — they should be sellers. Problem is, you have to actually offer something of value in order to make a sale. And [...]
A team that is sitting in last place, nine games below .500 and in a division headed by the Cardinals, Cubs, and Brewers, would presumably be sellers. Indeed, the fire sale began a few weeks ago for the Pirates, who dealt away Nate McLouth, Nyjer Morgan, Sean Burnett, and Eric Hinske over the past few [...]
Phillies 4 Mets 1 So much for taking over first place this weekend. Fernando Nieve was decent, if unspectacular, allowing 3 earned runs in 5 2/3 innings of work. But, he allowed six hits and walked another six, so every inning was a struggle. About what you might expect from a fill-in fifth starter facing [...]
