Looks like K-Rod was living foul.  Sources exclusive to TONY Sports are reporting that the brawl between K-Rod and his father-in-law was regarding infidelity issues.  Stay tuned for more details…

Boiling Point

June 3, 2010

 

Johan Santana has been dominant once again this season, with an ERA of 1.29 in his last five starts and an ERA of 2.75 for the season.  If you dig deeper into the numbers, and take out the one inning in which he let up nine runs to the Phillies who were illegally stealing signs, his ERA dips down a full run to 1.75 on the year.  However, the lefty has just four wins on the season, and Wednesday afternoon against the Padres was another wasted Johan Santana effort for the Mets.  While most players would love the opportunity to play in New York, one has to begin wondering whether Santana secretly wishes he could exile himself from the city and the organization.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Groundhog Day

May 24, 2010

 

Everything is all 'high-fives' in Mets land...for now.

For one weekend, the New York Mets were able to lay claim to the New York baseball throne by defeating the hated Yankees in an important series for the franchise.  For three days, Mets fans could boast that Pelfrey was better than Phil Hughes and any thoughts of Sabathia being the better ace than Santana were put to bed.  While the two wins in the past two days appeared to have saved Jerry Manuel’s job, and put some life into the Mets season, fans of The Amazins must keep their excitement in check. 

After all, haven’t we seen this same story before?  Read the rest of this entry ?

The State of the Union

May 21, 2010

After a 10-7 win over the Nationals Thursday night, the Mets completed a 2-6 road trip and limp home facing six games at Citi Field that could be the coup de grace for Jerry Manuel.  Despite an abundance of injuries, three games against the Yankees will be no cake walk and the red-hot Phillies loom after the weekend.  A mediocre Mets team could find themselves six or so games under .500 by the end of next Thursday.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Here lies Jerry Manuel….

May 17, 2010

A moment of silence, please.

Sunday afternoon was a beautiful day on the Island, complete with sunny skies and a cool refreshing breeze.  However, instead of lounging on the beaches, firing up the BBQ, or taking a stroll with my girlfriend on the boardwalk, I decided to torture myself like I was starring in Saw 7 and plop on the couch to catch the Mets/Marlins game.  The “Amazins” were attempting to impede a four-game sweep at the hands of the fish.  The contest began like a scene out of Groundhog’s day, as the third inning came equipped with defensive follies, clutch hitting by the opponent, and an injury to a pitcher to boot.  All things that Mets fans have become accustom to  for the past 10 plus seasons.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Demote Oliver Perez

May 10, 2010

In Sunday’s  loss to the Giants, Oliver Perez once again struggled to find the strike zone and was pulled in the fourth inning.  The schizophrenic walked seven of the 26 batters he faced and threw 98 pitches while surrendering three earned runs in just 3.1 innings.   It was the fourth time in just six starts this season that Oliver Perez could not complete six innings of work.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Jason Bay stinks

May 6, 2010

 

Jason Bay was 0 for 4 with two more K's on Wednesday

Entering the 2010 season, one of my lesser concerns was Jason Bay and his adaptation to New York City.  Based off what he did replacing Manny Ramirez in Boston, I had no reason to doubt that Bay would find his place in Queens and serve as a lethal threat out of the clean-up spot.   In 2009 for the Red Sox, Jason Bay belted 36 home runs and racked up 119 RBI’s while hitting .267 and swiping 13 bases.  Those stats alone were more than worthy of a $70 million contract. 

After five weeks into the 2010 season, however, Jason Bay is starting to remind me of Carlos Beltran in 2005.  Read the rest of this entry ?
