Remember When

MetsGeek re-branded itself as RaysGeek?  In light of the Mets upcoming series against the Rays, Chris Gaine over at Amazin' Avenue has an article up about past Mets-Rays series.  R.A. Dickey's 1-hitter against them in 2012 was certainly memorable -- the Mets appealed to the League to have that one hit ruled after the fact into an error on David Wright.  Unsuccessfully, obviously.

8 Years Later

Here's the same chart as the one from yesterday, with the playoff odds for the NL East this year, instead of from 2007.  It's funny, eight years ago I had to make the chart myself by copy and pasting data from BP into an excel spreadsheetl; these days it's all done for you already.  You can download a JPEG with a single click.

What a time to be alive!

At this point, the Mets and Nats chances of making the playoffs are basically mirror images of each other.  It's pretty unlikely that either one of these teams gets a Wildcard spot, and the other three teams in the division are basically totally out of it.

I'm Back, Baby!

The Mets are in first place this late in the year for the first time since 2008, essentially the last time I posted one of these things.  Sabermetrics!  fWAR!  rWAR!  Those are real things, jerks!

I wonder if this thing will even work?  Let's find out!

Man, Haven't Done One Of These In A While

Maybe now that I'm unemployed, I'll have more time for sabermetrics. Or not, whatever.

Just a day away from Mets pitchers and catchers reporting. Finding it hard to get excited for the team this year. Even with the addition of Jason Bay, it looks like approximately an 84-win team. And that assumes that Reyes, Beltran et al will come back and be healthy for most/all of the year. Honestly, I'd bet the under.

Epic Fail

Jesus, can't the Mets do anything right? I mean, this entire season has been a double serving of fail. But the one remaining major league-caliber position player on the team gets beaned in the head, and you can't even retaliate properly? FAIL.

Santana, your heart was in the right place, you just couldn't get it done. Just like the Mets always can't get it done.

God, this reminds me of another time a team spectacularly failed to protect their star player after a concussive beaning. Thankfully the Mets don't have any shameful incidents like that in their past, the memory of which I would have to kill with cheap bourbon. Yes, thank God that never happened.

PS -- Matt Cain, I'm sure it was an accident. But tipping your hat to the crowd afterward was not.
