Our Shining Song

When the Mets defeated the Cardinals in Game 6 of the 2006 NLCS, I referenced a song by Steve Winwood called “One More Morning“. It seemed simple. Win Game 6 while down 3-2, get one more morning. It was a natural fit. “One More Morning”, along with being the title of that post, was the next next to last track on Winwood’s Roll With It album. But there was a greater plan...

A friendly letter to a Mets fan

Dear Mets Fan, It was October 19, 2006. My 22nd birthday. I was in Boston, back in town to celebrate. While stopping at my old college newspaper office, I watched Adam Wainwright hurl a curveball, outside corner, and Carlos Beltran saw it … saw it … saw it … and buckled. Called strike three. Game over. Mets lose. What a terrible moment. What a heartbreaker. Especially after...

Fittingly, Bartolo Colon the final torch bearer for the Montreal Expos

Coming into 2015, there were seven “active” players who previously suited up for the Montreal Expos. In no particular order, they were Luis Ayala, Scott Downs, Bruce Chen, Endy Chavez, Maicer Izturis, Bartolo Colon, and Jon Rauch. Chen retired before the start of the season. Ayala is pitching in the Mexican League after spending all of the 2014 season in the minor leagues. Rauch...

Happy Birthday Gary Cohen

It’s Outta Here!!!! Gary Cohen turns 55 years old today. There’s no one I would rather see calling every game’s live action on SNY. The trio of Cohen, Darling, and Hernandez makes for entertaining television, even when the Mets are having a losing season. Cohen has been calling the action in the Mets booth since 1989. He started on WFAN radio calling games with the legendary...

Lessons From My Dad… And Gil Hodges

It was one of the most memorable games in team history. And I had the luck of good timing (or maybe bad timing) to be in the stands. No, it wasn’t July 1, 2012 when Johan Santana hurled the Mets first no-no. It wasn’t October 19, 2006 when Endy Chavez defied the laws of gravity and robbed Scott Rolen of a home run. It wasn’t October 25, 1986 when Mookie Wilson hit that slow...

The last Expo standing

By Miles Wray The Washington Nationals — who once earned exactly 59 wins in consecutive seasons (2008-09) and who are presently one of baseball’s most-feared, most-bankrolled teams — are entering their eleventh season playing their home games in America’s capital.

Today In Mets History: Chavez Claimed On Waivers

In 2002, the Mets claimed outfielder Endy Chavez on waivers from Detroit. CHAVEZ: Magic moment. Chavez played three unremarkable seasons with the Mets, but arguably had one of the most memorable moments in franchise history when he leaped high against the left field wall at Shea Stadium to rob the Cardinals’ Scott Rolen of a home run. Chavez then quickly threw the ball into the...

The Seattle Mariners Have A Battle For The Five Hole Starter

The Fifth Man In Rotation Will Win Job During Spring The Seattle Mariners roster for 2015 continues to finalize itself.  The M’s just picked up Endy Chavez one more time with a minor league deal to bolster their depth in the outfield.  Only one spot is truly “up for grabs” during spring training from what I can discern.  That spot would be the 5th starter in the M’s five...

Chavez, Gutierrez agree to minor league deals with Mariners

SEATTLE (AP) Outfielders Endy Chavez and Franklin Gutierrez have agreed to minor league contracts with the Seattle Mariners and will report to big league training.

Once a Gold Glove center fielder with Seattle, Gutierrez was limited to 41 games in 2013, when he was slowed by hamstring injuries...

Happy New Year Marlon Byrd

Hours before 2015 officially becomes reality, Marlon Byrd was sent packing to Cincinnati.  The first time the Phillies traded Byrd (back in 2005), it netted the team Inning-Endy Chavez from the Nationals.  This time it brings Reds pitching prospect Ben Lively to Philadelphia. Amaro also sent $4M to Cincy to cover half of Byrd's salary. Lively has a live arm...see what I did...

Should The Seattle Mariners Attempt To Re-Sign Their Own Free Agents?

The Mariners do have six names on that list, and while none of them are along the lines of a Robinson Cano...

We Can’t Even Be Sure of Uehara

Et tu, Koji? Going into last Friday’s contest with Seattle, Uehara had been one of the few bright spots in the dismal 2014 season. In 57 appearences, he had a 5-3 mark and 1.53 ERA, allowing 40 hits in 58 2/3 innings. His 26 saves and only 7 walks and 72 K’s helped enable the Sox to have a 44-0 team record when leading after 8 innings (which, of course, has been pretty rare)...

Close, but no cigar. Trevor Bauer pitched into the seventh inning, his best start on the road during his young Major League career, but it wasn’t enough to log his first victory away from Progressive Field. A home run by Endy Chavez was enough for the Seattle Mariners to win 3-2 Friday evening, despite a late, ninth inning rally by the Tribe. Chavez wreaked havoc all evening on...

Jake Peavy Doesn’t Give Offense Chance To Play Spoiler In Red Sox’s Loss

All of the run support in the world wouldn’t have helped Jake Peavy on Tuesday as the Boston Red Sox fell to the Seattle Mariners 8-2 at Safeco Field. OK, technically, nine runs would have done the trick. But you get the point. Peavy, who has been victimized by low run support all season, didn’t give the Red Sox’s offense a chance to play spoiler.
