Jacob deGrom: About NLDS Game One

Personally, yesterday was about as good as it gets for a baseball fan. I left work around noon, making it home in time for the start of the Texas/Toronto game; watched Texas take a 2-0 lead in their series after tying the game 4-4 in the eighth and letting their bullpen absolutely shut the Blue …

End of Year Award Time!

We should probably discuss the end of year awards. I was lazy and didn’t write up my preseason predictions, which is fine because I would have been wrong for all of them. I was wrong for all of them last year. Who knew that Stephen Strasburg wasn’t ready to take the leap—every Nationals fan, apparently—or …

Noah Syndergaard: About Last Night (September 25)

I didn’t think we’d be here. Not if I’m being honest. If you’™ve read this blog for any length of time (if so, thanks!) you know I’ve voiced my fair share of complaints. Prior to the trade deadline, right after the failed Carlos Gomez trade, I voiced many of those complaints in a rather scathing …

Matt Harvey: About Last Night (September 02)

Can I recycle Sunday’s post about Noah Syndergaard? It felt like the same start except this time the Mets scored enough runs that I didn’t storm around the house like a pouting child, and I saw Ruben Tejada hit an inside-the-park homerun. Tejada was an RBI machine in this game. See? I told you he …

Cuddyer, a Balky Knee, and Questions

I’d like to revisit an earlier post. Or part of a post. Really, what I’m intending to do is return to a post from December where I called the Michael Cuddyer signing a way for the budget conscious Mets to sign a bat for the middle of the lineup on the cheap. No one else …

Frequenting the Freq(ing) Mets

The American League won the All Star game. Since I paid attention for all of one Mike Trout home run, any sensible write-up will have to come elsewhere. There was a score, presumably, but I don’t know what that final score was. The AL won, though. SI and ESPN likely have very nice write-ups. I’m …

Making Sense of Lucas Duda

Maybe it’s too simplistic to look at Lucas Duda’s batting line and pinpoint an exact time when things went haywire. Was it in early May when Duda’s OPS dipped below .800 for the first time, a few days before perhaps, or do we look to the very end of May when Duda’s OPS dropped from …

Can Jacob deGrom Start Every Game?

I’m now at the point that when Jacob deGrom starts (or any Mets starter for that matter) I don’t worry if the Mets will score or not. I don’t even particularly enjoy watching the team bat. I’d rather just watch them pitch, enjoying the 15 or so pitches that it normally takes for deGrom to …

Mets Offense Still in O’Hare

There was a moment last night, early in the second inning, when I thought that Matt Harvey had no-hit stuff. His curveball was sharp as Starlin Castro flailed helplessly at it while Harvey’s fastball did Harvey fastball things. Miguel Montero promptly singled, and “folks, there goes the no-hitter” as F.P. Santangelo almost always says, but …

Run, Campbell! Run! Wait…Back!

I’m still trying to process that Michael Cuddyer throw in the second. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything like that before. There’s a part of me that believes that Cuddyer didn’t really cost the Mets a run in that situation, that throwing the ball like a cricket pitch and letting it roll to the …
