Lots and Lots of Injuries

Over the weekend there were a lot of injuries that happened to the Mets but since I had no internet, I wasn’t able to blog about them. Here is a list of injuries:

Could be back this week.
Brian Schnieder – He has been working in extended spring training. Hopes to be back this week.
Jose Reyes – Did not play in Boston. Jerry Manual said that Reyes would not play today (Monday) at Citi Field against the Nats.
Francisco Rodrieguez – After being in the hospital Saturday, Franky was able to jog out to the bullpen yesterday and he did alittle bit of warming up.
Ryan Church – He could be sent to the disabled list according to Manual. Jerry said that Church will be examined on his sore right hamstring today.
Ramon Martinez – He was taken out in the 8th inning yesterday due to back pain. Manual also said that Fernando Tatis could be the starter at shortstop today.
With all of these injuries the Mets only have 2 guys on the bench. The backup catcher and Reed or Pagan.

then you can find it here.

Reyes, Peavy and Ollie

The Mets today announced that Jose Reyes is day to day after getting tendentious in is calf yesterday. As Noble Thoughts said, you never know what the Mets are hiding and Reyes could actually be really badly hurt.

Also today the Padres made a deal with the Chicago White Sox  for Jake Peavy but Peavy waived his no trade claus saying that he wants to stay in the National league on a team playing in Central United States.
In other news Oliver Perez pitched a game in extended spring training today. He went 5 innings but I have not been able to find out his line. Brian Schnieder caught Perez today.

Schneider is Setback

Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post is reporting that Brian Schneider will be setback about a week from when he was supposed to come off the DL on Sunday. The Mets said that he is having soreness in his calf during his rehab.

So all of this talk about who should the Mets send down for Schneider will stop.

Postgame: Brewers 4 at Mets 5 (Game 1)

Today the Mets won in dramatic fashion against the Brewers at Citi Field.

W- J.J. Putz (1-0)
L – Seth McClung (0-1)
Box Score/Recap

At the Plate:
  • The Mets scored 3 runs in the first inning.
  • Gary Sheffield hit home run number 500 in his career and was the first Mets player to ever hit their 500th career home run in a Mets uniform.
  • In the 9th, Carlos Delgado leads off with a double. Then Carlos Beltran strikes out. Then Ryan Church is intentionally walked which brings up the catcher, Omir Santos, who came in when they pinch hit for Castro due to Schnieder going on the DL. Santos hits a ground ball so lightly hit that it isn’t a double play.
  • Then Luis Castillo comes up and hits a infield hit to J.J. Hardy and Delgado scores.
On the Mound:
  • Livan Hernandez was great the first time through the order but ran into trouble in the 5th and 6th. He gave up 4 runs through 5+.
  • The bullpen didn’t give up a run after that.
  • It only took J.J. Putz, 11 pitches to get through the 9th and earn the win.
My Thoughts:
I am not a big fan of Sheffield but congratulations on home run 500. I wasn’t expecting it so soon and it was very clutch Gary. Luis Castillo is starting to come back. He was doing what he should be doing in the 9th. Slap it the other way.

Player of Game:
The Player of Game goes to Gary Sheffield for being the first Mets player to reach 500 home runs as a Met. 
Up Next:
Tomorrow the Mets will play the Brewers at 1:10.

Box Score

Recap

At the Plate:


  • Carlos Delgado was 2 for 5 with a homer and 4 RBIs (not by a Grand Slam)
  • Carlos Beltran was 2 for 4 with a walk and 2 RBIs.
  • Brian Schneider was 2 for 4 with a walk and 3 RBIs. All of which came in the 7th inning when Schneider broke the game open with a 3 RBI double.
On the Rubber:

  • Mike Pelfrey started and went 5 innings. He gave up 4 runs, all of which were in the first. He walked 4, struck out 2 and ended up throwing 104 pitches (56 strikes)
  • Bobby Parnell followed by throwing a no hit scoreless inning although walking 2. Parnell might have pitched another inning but the Mets hit so well the following inning that they had to pinch hit for Parnell.
  • Pedro Feliciano followed and threw 2/3 of a inning giving up 2 runs.
  • Sean Green then game in to bail out Feliciano and he did that in one batter.
  • J.J. Putz then came in to pitch the 8th and he gave up his first run of the season.
  • Frankie Rodreiguez then came in for the 9th and had some control issues. He went 2-0 on every batter he faced. Frankie ended up throwing 30 pitches in his 1 inning of work. More on that later in the post.
Time of Game:
The game ended up going 3 hours and 56 minutes. In total the Mets walked 9 batters and the Reds walked 7 batters It will be a long game when in total 16 walks in the game and that goes with 2 mid-inning pitching changes.
The Bottom of the 9th:
In the bottom of the 9th, Brandon Phillips led of the inning with a walk. Frankie then got Jay Bruce to pop out. Then on a bad call, Edwin Encarnacion reached on a error by Carlos Delgado. What happened was that Phillips ran on the pitch, David Wright threw it to first and Brandon Phillips tries to go to 3rd so Carlos Delgado throws it to 3rd but the 1st base umpire, Bill Welkie, says that Delgado’s foot came off the bag when he caught it so he could throw it to 3rd. Brandon Phillips ends up getting to 3rd safely. Then a walk by Remon Hernandez loads the bases. Frankie then strikes out Alex Gonzalez and get Lance Nix to fly out to Center for the win.
K-Rod and Schnieder
Player of Game:

I am giving it to Carlos Delgado for his 4 RBIs although it could have easily gone to Carlos Beltran or Brian Schneider.

Up Next:

Today at 1 PM Oliver Perez will take the mound on SNY.

Schnieder Out

Reports have said that Brian Schnieder will be out for opening day mean that our opening day catchers will be Ramon Castro and Robinson Cancel.

Too bad Pudge is gone. Couldn’t he have gotten hurt a little earlier so the Mets will get Pudge. I like Castro. He can hit but Cancel sucks.
