Mike Pelfrey Must Find His Way In 2012

The man on everyone's last nerve, Mike Pelfrey, is the Mets infamous underachiever.  Once a well though of prospect with ace level potential, Pelfrey has never been able to to figure himself out for any extended length of time.  I say himself because he has the stuff to be a very good pitcher in this league.  In fact, at one point Pelfrey may have had the stuff necessary to...

On The Road With Petey Pete: The Binghamton Mets

In the words of Mark Twain, “The coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in San Francisco.” An excellent thought but obviously Mr. Twain never saw a baseball game at NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton, NY on a Friday night at the beginning of April. Wow, it really gives new meaning to the phrase “chilled to the bone” I can tell you that much. I had arrived in Binghamton...

Mets Minors: Generation 2K.5

2012 Fantasy Baseball Daily Fix: Yoenis Cespedes strikes again, Lucas Duda blasts two

Lucas Duda Bubbles pop, as home runs fly and blown saves continue.  Opening day has been a little crazy so far, well, with 4 different opening days around the league things seemed to be a bit hectic. The first couple of “opening days” saw the 2011 “The Year of the Pitcher” overflow into 2012. However it wasn’t until yesterday when the hitters decided to join the party...

We’re A Better Team Than People Give Us Credit For

Don’t look now, but the Mets are a win Tuesday away from matching the best start in franchise history — established by the 1985 edition, which opened 5-0. “Everybody is excited about the start,” Terry Collins said after the Mets beat the Washington Nationals, 4-3, Monday night at Citi Field on Daniel Murphy’s walk-off RBI single. “We talked about it in the first...

Ron Darling Become a New York Star Post-Playing Days

Both Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez marveled at the prescient Ron Darling last night. In the first inning, Darling had noted how it would be a good time for Mets starter Mike Pelfrey to fake a pickoff throw to third and first in order to possibly get Ryan Zimmerman starting too early on the 3-2 count. As if on cue, Pelfrey did just that. Later in the game, Darling noted how the poor...
