TweetSince their 3-1 start to the season, the Mets have scraped the .500 mark twice: on May 20 at Yankee Stadium, and then last night (6/15) in soggy Atlanta. That’s a couple of pretty fair ballclubs, isn’t it? It’s not like they bulldozed the Mudville Nine to get there: they did it at two of […]

Mets Card Of The Week: 1988 Barry Lyons (exprimental) http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/16/mets-card-of-the-week-1988-barry-lyons-exprimental/ Thu, 16 Jun 2011 13:02:30 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/16/mets-card-of-the-week-1988-barry-lyons-exprimental/

Tweet1988 TOPPS EXPERIMENTAL CLOTH BARRY LYONS So what of Topps and its abiding fascination with cloth? Seems someone in the hallowed halls held fast to the hobby-horsical notion that the kids wanted to see cloth versions of their cards. In 1972, Topps created a test set of brown-backed cloth stickers. These made it out of […]

Comparing Scott Hairston and Justin Turner http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/14/comparing-scott-hairston-and-justin-turner-2/ Tue, 14 Jun 2011 15:59:12 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/14/comparing-scott-hairston-and-justin-turner-2/

TweetMost Mets fans are counting down the days until Ike Davis and David Wright return from the disabled list. This seems innocent enough, as you always want your middle-of-the-order hitters in the lineup. But seemingly the fans want them back just as much for the accompanying removal of players from the current roster. And fans […]

The 2011 Mets: Ride The Rollercoaster http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/14/the-2011-mets-ride-the-rollercoaster/ Tue, 14 Jun 2011 15:50:11 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/14/the-2011-mets-ride-the-rollercoaster/

TweetYou would think that after 40 years of watching the Mets’ brand of baseball, I’d be used to it by now. I was about six-years-old when I finally kind of caught on to what this “base-ball” thingy was. Since then, I’ve seen some seasons where it’s been awful from Jump Street: 1974, 1977 through ’79 […]

Besides a Quality Bullpen, Mets Lack Presence http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/14/besides-a-quality-bullpen-mets-lack-presence/ Tue, 14 Jun 2011 14:13:24 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/14/besides-a-quality-bullpen-mets-lack-presence/

TweetA four-run lead headed to the bottom of the eighth is supposed to be safe. To paraphrase Howie Rose, I was putting this one in the books before the eighth was over. But we know the narrative these past two weeks, don’t we? This bullpen stinks and no lead is safe until the 27th out.
