Kaz Yeeeshi

Shari from Take the 7 Train dubbed him that and it cracks me up. Last night, Yeeeshi went 5.2 innings, only walked one, gave up nine hits, and walked only one. I like to see the one walk, but I also saw him hit a batter on an 0-2 count and relatively suck all around. Earlier in the year, Kaz went the first six games trading off sparkling performances and horrific ones. Now, he only turns in horrific ones. Ishii has started nine games this season for the Mets, and in his three great starts in which he allowed one run or less, he posted a 0.90 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and gave up no homeruns. In the other six starts, Ishii has given up no less than five runs, though last night only three of them were earned. In those six starts, he has a 8.10 ERA, 1.74 WHIP, and has given up seven homeruns.

Ishii is very bad. You just do not know what you are getting night in and night out from him and lately, it has been all bad. Now, last night's loss was not his fault. He could of given up one run and the Mets would have still lost, but I'm not sure how much longer he will be run out there. If Doug Mientkiewcz and Kaz Matsui can be benched, and both of them the Mets are on the hook for more money than Ishii, Yeeeshi can definitely pick the splinters out of his ass as well. I still think about the Mets pulling the trigger for Ishii and giving away Jason Phillips, and I still would have done the deal with the circumstances being what they were. No one could have predicted Jae Seo and Aaron Heilman would be looking great this year, but it is time to do the right thing again. Like with a lot of other moves, the Mets are slow to make a necessary change. Give the guy a chance to see if he can be a LOOGY out of the pen. Lefites are hitting him at a .128/.209/.282 clip and he only walks a lefty every 9.75 at bats compared to 6.33 at bats for righties. It is certainly worth a shot at this point.

  • The Padres, Yankees, and Orioles are interested and Cammy and I am fully behind the idea of the Mets making someone overpay for Cameron. The Mets are in the drivers seat here and have the luxury of not having to trade him.

  • Minor update:
    • Hagerstown beat West Virginia 3-2 and Mike Carp led the charge by going 2 for 3 with this 16th homerun of the year and two RBIs. Carlos Gomez went 2 for 4 with a solo homerun as well and they provided all of the offense for the Suns.
    • Oh, in case you have not noticed, Brian Bannister is good. Binghamton beat Norwich 1-0 behind a complete game, four hit shutout by Brian Bannister. He did not walk one batter and struck out ten while facing the minimum 27 batters. Brian became the Eastern League's first eight game winner and upped his record to 8-1 and lowered his ERA to 1.87. The lone run came off of Anderson Hernandez's bat and he went 2 for 4.
    • The Tides lost 3-0 to Scranton and were four hit. Neal Musser pitched well in the loss going six innings, giving up five hits and three walks, surrendered two earned runs, and struck out four.
  • Last night, the Mets had six hits and David Wright had three of them. Aaron Heilman upped his scoreless inning streak as a reliever to 13.2 innings. Out of any reliever to pitch more than ten innings out of the bullpen, he is the only reliever to have a sub 1.00 WHIP and he leads all current members of the bullpen in K/9.

  • From Fox Sports:

    The Mets recently rejected the Giants' offer of second baseman Ray Durham for second baseman Kaz Matsui. The trade fit the Giants' desire to get younger — Durham is 33, Matsui 29. But the Mets view Matsui as a superior defender, while Durham's range is extremely limited. The Giants also have expressed recent interest in Rockies right-hander Jason Jennings.

  • From North Jersey.com:

    Martinez, who will start tonight, is 13-0 with a 1.30 ERA in 13 starts against the Mariners. And in Safeco Field, he's 6-0 with an 0.77 ERA. A win tonight ties him with Houston's Roy Oswalt, who is 14-0 against Cincinnati, for the best mark against one team.

    "They just got me on a good day," Martinez understated.

  • Not that the Mets would have won, but with the bases loaded and two outs, the pinch hitting version of Ted Williams was at the plate in the eighth inning. He was subsequently called out on two horrific strikes called. The first one was bad and the second one was worse being a foot inside. Then Anderson got thrown out as soon as he jawed off to the "ump" after the ridiculous incident. That ump, has no place being the majors. Absolutely a horrible, horrible call.

    Hi there!
    I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
    I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
    Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
