New York Mets

Mets Turn The Corner,Now to the Top - Blog

Posted by bob plezia on March 31, 2014 - 9:00pm

I had the opportunity to watch the Mets this Spring Training in games against the Cards, couple of times against the high ranking Nationals, the Braves and the Tigers. I was also able to talk with some of the coaches about this year's team, the new acquisitions, the trades and the status of the prospects in the minor league. We also went over briefly the state of finances of the organization, etc.

Mets: if not now then when - Story

Posted by Bob Plezia on March 21, 2013 - 8:37pm

Had the opportunity to watch the Cards at the Mets today in Spring Training.
At the post game meet, the Mets had a couple of announcements: 1) Jon Niese would open the season for the Mets, and 2) David Wright was named the team captain.
These are honors usually bestowed on the top players on the team. And if you look at the Mets' player records, both of these players have reasonable successful numbers. Are they league leading? No. But, this team is not league leading either.

Dodger's Yesterday, Mets Next? The Fans? - Blog

Posted by Bob Plezia on April 21, 2011 - 5:32pm

The move yesterday by MLB to take over the Dodger's was for the "betterment of the franchise, the fans and baseball". Frank McCourt, 50% owner with his ex or soon to be ex the other 50% owner, claims the team's financial and operating condition is within the MLB guidelines for the franchise. 
The Mets, who borrowed $25 mil. from MLB in Oct., is currently not within the MLB franchise operating guidelines and in need of cash now for liquidity/operating purposes, hence the recent offer to sell a portion of the team.

This is an exciting week in MLB as rosters have to be cut to 25.
Trades, releases, signings, options considerations, etc. are happening by the hr.
The Mets, today, not only have more former GMs working for them, Alderson, DePodesta and Ricciardi, all 3, individually, have more on their resumes than the one former.

Mets 8 Beat Braves 2 - Blog

Posted by Bob Plezia on March 26, 2011 - 5:37pm

The Mets had 12 hits today so the hitting seems to be in good shape. Another Q was 2nd and it appears Emaus has it and its his to lose. His 2 for 3 today brought his BA to .318. Another Q was pitching. Pelfrey pitched 5 2/3 inn, gave up 2 runs. 2 DPs helped. so the defence was solid with no Es vs 5 Es for the Braves. Acosta, Brydak, brought up today, Parnell and KRod (clocked at 91) shut the Braves the rest of the way.

Mets R16-H23-E1, Cards R3-H9-E1 - Blog

Posted by Bob Plezia on March 24, 2011 - 5:47pm

And the Skip was asked at post game, would you call this a break out game? At which the Skip said, after hesitating, with a kind of low voice, something like, "I think so".
This is the most runs scored in a game by the Mets this Spring, this is the most runs against the Cards this Spring, this is the worst loss by the Cards this Spring, this  is the biggest margin of victory by the Mets this Spring, 16 runs, 23 hits, etc. etc. etc.

Bisons scrimmage N.O. - Blog

Posted by Bob Plezia on March 23, 2011 - 4:25pm

The score was about even but with all the switches, you could not keep track easily, so we called it a scrimmage.
Beltran hit in each if the first 5 inn. He did the same yesterday. He ran w/o a limp and well, and his swing looked good, he hit the ball well a couple of times. He needs more BP to get the strike zone, and hit the pitch where it is.
Lutz was 3 for 4 with a triple to right ctr and 2 run HR over left field fence. His stroke looked good. Ratliff was 2 for 2 and looked good with 2 solid liners.

Mets ss beat Nationals in PSL 7-4 Yesterday, 6th straight loss for Nats. Notes. Ollie? - Blog

Posted by Bob Plezia on March 20, 2011 - 2:20pm

The Mets bats have come around more last week and they had 12 hits yesterday. Wright has been 8 for 11 after starting 0 for 13 then 1 for 17 and 2 for 22. We've learned he has been working on some minor changes to his swing so no one in the Mets org. was panicked with his start. Wright showed great patience with the diff approach while not getting any return earlier. Bay had 3 BB yesterday bringing his OBP to .393.
The hitting goal of the Mets this yr is OBP. They are working on strike zone discipline and simplifying swings.
