Francoeur feels anxious when he bats

23

"'I get so anxious,' Francoeur said. 'I don’t know. Part of me thinks I need to go on medicine. I do.'" Funny, I feel the same way when I watch Francoeur bat.

Jason Bay's 2007 Season

Jason Bay's career numbers are outstanding - .280 AVG, .376 OBP, .896 OPS, and .384 wOBA.  Yet his 2007 season looks lousy, to the tune of a .247 AVG, .327 OBP, .746 OPS, and .326 wOBA.  Although...

Source: Chicago Cubs get Seattle Mariners' Aaron Heilman for two players

Heilman is deprived of the chance to lead the American League in tight pants. Eric's take: Per Ken Rosenthal, one of the players coming from the Cubs would be shortstop Ronny Cedeno.

We could do a lot worse, as long as the prospects the Mets trade aren't too valuable.

Why Is Carlos Delgado Getting MVP Consideration?

(promoted from fanposts. --eric) I'm thrilled that Delgado is having such a great second half for the Mets, but he has a lower VORP lower than Reyes, Wright, and Beltran. Even just looking at...

Jerry Manuel and Bunts

In an effort to figure out whether or not Jerry Manuel is the buntingest bunt who ever bunted, I looked up the number of sacrifice hits for the Chicago White Sox from 1998-2003, which were the...

Friends Tell El Duque He Shouldn't Have To Change Windup For Mets To Like Him | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

+

NEW YORK—Close friends of Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez explained to the Mets pitcher Tuesday that, despite his team's attempts to get him to alter his unconventional delivery to alleviate the stress placed on his right push-off foot, Hernandez is great the way he is and should not have to change anything about his mechanics just to fit in on the Mets roster. "If the Mets don't want you to be their fifth starter, that's their loss," Hernandez's longtime friend Bob Cohn, 52, reportedly told the pitcher Tuesday. "Your windup is great. It's unique, it's quirky, it's flashy without being pretentious—Orlando, it's you." Cohn and Hernandez's other friends, however, later went on to suggest that maybe Hernandez might want to try possibly abandoning his high leg kick, "just to show a different side of yourself, you know?"

Maybe Willie Randolph is a better strategist than we give him credit for being.  He doesn't bunt or hit and run too much, and in general he puts the best guys out there.  Sure, it took him about a...

Concerns About Glavine

I was glad to see that the Mets' bats perform so well last night.  Beltran and Delgado had big hits, and Castro continued to show why he's our best option at catcher - although we should be careful...
