Although there were some strange calls on offense, The Giants played well as a team! Next up though is a tougher opponent in a much tougher environment! Along with youth and a veteran QB in Brett Favre, the Giants will definitely have to keep the momentum and the confidence going!

Pedro Martinez says he is 100% healthy. He may be but is he in pitching shape?

Better yet, when he comes back to the Mets, will he make a difference?

In his second rehab start, he gave up a 3 run homer but did strikeout 4. Martinez said that he is’nt really working on striking people out but mostly working on locating pitches..

“This is Rookie ball and A ball, and they are scoring three, four, five runs on me. I am not really looking for strikeouts. I am actually working on pitches, where do I want pitches to fall, what specific zone I want in my pitches and forget about the kids.”

Forget about the kids? If you can’t get “The Kids” out you aren’t going to get Major League ball players out.

In my opinion, The Mets could use a boost especially in the bullpen, but I doubt Martinez will be the solution. Martinez is a high-profile player and will take some of the pressure and the spotlight off the team that has been riddled with injuries. And with the Phillies and the Braves breathing down their necks in the standings this would be a plus and they should be able to focus on winning games with the players they have now.

Bottom line, he will make a difference but it won’t be due to the amount of strikeouts he has or the location of his pitches.

You may have noticed that I rarely talk abouth the Mets, Nets or any hockey period, well here I go.

I wanna start by saying congrats to Tom Glavine on winning his 298th victory, 2 shy of 300 wins. Thats a big accomplishment for any pitcher. But like I always say, it’s not how you start, but how you finish and the Mets are beginning to struggle. their offense has been mediocre to the point where they had to shake up the coaching staff. They fired Rick Down and replaced him with the 1st base coach, Howard Johnson. Another move which I think was kinda stupid was bringing in Ricky Henderson to coach 1st base. What the hell does he know about coaching other then showing someone how to steal a base. And wait, wasn’t he reportedly in the dugout playing poker a few years back during the NLCS?? Just Dumb!

Talk about being used!
With the injury to Nenad Krstic, the Nets gave an opportunity to Mikki Moore, a player who spent most of his time in the d-league. Moore filled in pretty good I must say, helped the Nets considerably and after the end of the season, he said would give the Nets “a discount” on resigning him. Well, he didn’t. He bolted for the money and Sacramento Kings. You had a guaranteed spot backing up Nenad and who is to say Krstic he is going to be 100 percent anyway. Plus playing with one of the top 3 point guards ever in J. Kidd who will get you the ball.. Bad Move!

Now Hockey..
