  • The Stat Line of the Night — 9/6/10 — Danny Espinosa

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/6/10 — Danny Espinosa

    Rookie Danny Espinosa was called up to the big league squad for the Washington Nationals just last week when rosters were expanded.  As well as he was playing in Triple-A, no one including himself thought that he was going to be having games like this so early in his major league career.  His huge night […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 8/1/10 — Adam LaRoche

    The Stat Line of the Night — 8/1/10 — Adam LaRoche

    The Arizona Diamondbacks recently made some big moves as the trade deadline was nearing, but the general feeling is that they were sellers.  At 23 games back in the division, there is not much hope for this season.  That doesn’t mean a D-backs fan can’t dream, however.  Yesterday was a perfect day for an Arizona […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/29/10 – R.A. Dickey

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/29/10 – R.A. Dickey

    A long, long time ago, R.A. Dickey was one of the hottest pitching prospects in all of baseball. He was a 1st round pick of the Rangers in 1996. But like so many prospects that are hyped up, Dickey never lived up to his potential. Until now — almost 15 years later. Dickey is now […]

  • “Let’s Get You Back Out To ‘Shitty’ Field”

    “Let’s Get You Back Out To ‘Shitty’ Field”

    Here is another case of “he said what?” How shitty can the new home of the Mets really be?  Perhaps this ESPN reporter was referring to the team on the field rather than the stadium they play in when he called Citi Field, “Shitty Field.” A simple slip of the tongue?  Or was he trying […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 7/6/10 — Johan Santana

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/6/10 — Johan Santana

    The Mets have had their ups and downs this season, but it seems as though every time Johan Santana takes the mound, the Mets bats go silent.  He is sporting a 3.15 ERA with a measly .239 batting average against him, however he was only 5-5 going into last night’s game.  Santana didn’t need any […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 6/20/10 — C.C. Sabathia

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/20/10 — C.C. Sabathia

    C.C. Sabathia had a pretty bad May.  For most pitchers, a 1-2 record and a 5.15 ERA wouldn’t have been catastrophic for a month, but the expectations for the former Cy Young award winner are a bit higher.  Things did not look to get any easier this month, with C.C. facing both Johan Santana and […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Just Keeping His Arm Warm

    Picture Of The Day: Just Keeping His Arm Warm

    As a former pitcher, I never used to ice.  That’s probably why I never made it past D1 college.  But this ice job in the picture should probably be filed under ‘excessive icing.’  This Mets pitcher has his right arm completely mummified after his outing against the Nationals.  Icing the arm isn’t going to help […]

  • David Wright’s Situation-al Workout

    David Wright’s Situation-al Workout

    Last season was a rough one for Mets’ third baseman David Wright, as he was sidelined for much of it after sustaining a concussion when he was hit in the head by a Matt Cain pitch.  Wright did return (albeit, with a giant spaceship-like helmet on his head), but he was never the same. Now, […]

  • Sunday, August 23, 2009: The Craziest Day In Baseball History?

    Sunday, August 23, 2009: The Craziest Day In Baseball History?

    Total Pro Sports – I wouldn’t expect people to begin asking the question “Where were you on August 23rd,” but those who were near a television watching the afternoon slate of Sunday’s baseball games will know that they witnessed one of the craziest weekend’s in Major League Baseball history. We’ll start in New York where […]

  • Phillies’ And Mets’ Fans Just Can’t Seem To Get Along

    Phillies’ And Mets’ Fans Just Can’t Seem To Get Along

    Total Pro Sports – Most people will tell you that baseball’s biggest rivalry is between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.  That may no longer be the case and we have the video evidence to prove it. This weekend was not the first time Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets fans have […]

  • A Bad Weekend To Be A Baseball Player’s Head

    A Bad Weekend To Be A Baseball Player’s Head

    Total Pro Sports – Whether you are standing in the batters box waiting on a 90 mph fastball, or the one delivering it, baseball can be quite the dangerous game.  It is often described as a non-contact sport, but don’t tell that too Mets third baseman David Wright or Dodgers pitcher Hiroki Kuroda. It happens […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 08/04/09 – Albert Pujols

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 08/04/09 – Albert Pujols

    Total Pro Sports – During the All-Star break much of the talk was surrounding Albert Pujols‘ great first half and the possibility of him capturing the triple crown.  He has since struggled at the plate and as a result his numbers have take a hit, but last night may have been the night the Cardinals […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/30/09 – Johan Santana

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/30/09 – Johan Santana

    Total Pro Sports – Not much has gone right for the New York Mets this season as injuries have pactically decimated the club, but thanks to a strong performance from Johan Santana yesterday theyfound themselves working on a five game winning streak that put them only two games under .500.  Unfortunately, the streak would eventually […]

  • Erin Andrews Gets Chords Pulled, Takes Ball In The Chin

    Erin Andrews Gets Chords Pulled, Takes Ball In The Chin

    Total Pro Sports – New York has not been too kind to sports’ hottest sideline reporter, Erin Andrews.  First someone was tugging on her chords during a live ESPN interview.  Then she was struck in the chin by an Alex Cora foul ball in the 4th inning and taken to a nearby hospital a few […]

  • New York Mets’ Daniel Murphy Makes Play of The Year

    New York Mets’ Daniel Murphy Makes Play of The Year

    Total Pro Sports – You may have to watch this one twice to truly believe what you are seeing.  Even Joe Torre was not convinced with what had just occurred in front of his eyes, hence his seemingly endless trot out to first base umpire Marty Foster. During last night’s game between the Mets and […]
