Mets Fan Trolling Hard in a Bill Buckner Jersey

When I initially saw this Bill Buckner jersey the first thing I thought was what other random jerseys a Mets fan would potentially wear. Considering this game was in Pittsburgh I totally would have accepted a Bobby Bonilla or Oliver Perez Mets jersey. Oliver Perez gave the Mets a 4.71 ERA over 101 appearances for a cold $44 million. As for Bobby Bo, he’s getting paid $1.2...

Arizona Diamondbacks: Bullpen provides no relief

Oliver Perez A bullpen for a Major League organization is so critical for success, and a bullpen is what the Arizona Diamondbacks lack. One game after another, the relief pitchers find someway to add a number in the loss column as they alone have a 4-7 record to the Arizona total 14-17. Some of the names in the D-Back bullpen include Oliver Perez, Evan Marshall, Brad Ziegler, and...

What The New York Mets Need To Accomplish In 2014

The New York Mets are on their way to missing the playoffs…again. In fact the last time the Mets were in the postseason (2006) Tom Glavine (recently inducted to the Baseball Hall Of Fame) was still pitching, Obama wouldn’t be the president of the United States for two more years, and we all thought Oliver Perez could be a promising starter for the Mets. So yea, it has been a...

D-backs' pen-manship gets high marks

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks received as many feelers on established relievers Addison Reed, Brad Ziegler and Oliver Perez before Thursday's nonwaiver trade deadline as they did on the players they traded, but that is as far as it got. And as far as it is likely to go. No reliever is untouchable, but the D-backs will consider trading from the group only if the other side is willing...

D-Backs 7, Pirates 4

This is all that really needs to be said: Diamondbacks are going to win because of a 2-run error on a pitcher’s ground ball, a homer by Andy Marte, and a homer by Nick Ahmed. — Jim Rosati (@northsidenotch) August 1, 2014 Also, Oliver Perez got the win. Yes, that Oliver Perez. The 2-run error was a killer – bases loaded, 2 outs, pitcher up, and the dreaded ground ball to Pedro…and...

MLB Trade Rumors: Los Angeles Dodgers Looking for Relief Help

The Los Angeles Dodgers have reportedly backed off their pursuit of a starting pitcher and are looking for relief help instead. Of course, there’s a good reason to take any statements about a team’s plans with a grain of salt at this time of year. However, the Dodgers would benefit more from adding a good reliever or two than from adding a big name in their rotation. As things...

For the second consecutive season, the Kansas City Royals limp into the All-Star break during a season in which there were high hopes that a now decades long playoff drought could be snapped.

The Mets Are Experiencing A Home Field Disadvantage

You don’t have to be a numbers-obsessed Mets fan like me to realize that the team has been playing pretty badly at Citi Field over the past few years.  But sometimes the numbers help to advance and enhance the narrative. For example, since the beginning of the 2011 campaign, the Mets have gone 105-145 in games played at Citi Field.  Meanwhile, over the same time period, the team...

Tickets are Tree Fiddy, Yet The Mets get Shutdown by Lurch

Well the guy the Mets looked over this past off-season is currently leading the National League in ERA (0.70). While the remains of John Lannan had an eye popping ERA of 15.75. Should I care that 35-year-old Lurch is pitching the best he has since 2006? Probably not. What I do care about is that this Mets team just got one-hit by the Braves. I can’t stand the friends I...

Through the looking glass: Opening Day

From 1994 through 2007, I attended almost every home opener in Pittsburgh at PNC Park and Three Rivers Stadium. Home openers are a weird thing when you don’t have much hope for the upcoming season; you’re excited that baseball is back, but it’s hard to be truly optimistic about what’s in front of you, as a fan. My memories of all of those home openers have very little to...
