I ain't trash talking anyone or anything but the Braves. And I wouldn't have given a hoot but for all the ridiculous smack they were bringing the week before this series... "We're goinfg to win the division" and "We're still the team to beat" and the "We still own the Mets." Dude, they were 12 games out and 5 ganmes under .500 talking that kinda garbage. If I were Bobby Cox I would have fined them.

The Braves are so far away in the Mets' rearview, they can't even smell the smoke coming off Beltran's tail pipe.

The Mets don't have luck with taxis. This sucks if they lose Sanchez for the season.


Mets get pitching after losing Sanchez
N.Y. sends outfielder Nady to Pirates for Perez, Hernandez after taxi crash

Al Behrman / AP
Duaner Sanchez has been a key member of New York’s outstanding bullpen, going 5-1 with a 2.60 ERA in 49 games.

Updated: 2 hours, 38 minutes ago
NEW YORK - After stellar setup man Duaner Sanchez dislocated his pitching shoulder in a taxi accident, the New York Mets quickly replenished their staff Monday by acquiring Roberto Hernandez and Oliver Perez from the Pittsburgh Pirates for outfielder Xavier Nady.

Sanchez was riding in a cab that got into an accident near the team’s hotel in Florida on Sunday night, the Mets said. He flew back to New York on Monday and was being treated at a hospital.

The Mets expect to learn in about a week whether Sanchez will need surgery. If he does, the right-hander would miss the rest of the season — potentially a huge blow to the team’s World Series hopes.


If not, he could return in September, according to general manager Omar Minaya.

It’s the second time in two years a Mets pitcher has been injured in a taxi. Tom Glavine lost two front teeth in an August 2004 accident while going from LaGuardia Airport to nearby Shea Stadium in a cab.

For now, the loss of Sanchez leaves the NL East leaders without one of their best pitchers, so they immediately went looking for another reliever.

They found one just before the non-waiver trade deadline in the 41-year-old Hernandez, who did a solid job as a setup man for the Mets last season before signing with Pittsburgh in December.

“He’s done it. We know him, he knows New York,” Minaya said. “We’re fortunate to get him under the circumstances.”

The right-hander is 0-3 with two saves and a 2.93 ERA in 46 relief appearances with the Pirates.

The 24-year-old Perez has fallen off dramatically after a big season in 2004, when he was 12-10 with a 2.98 ERA and 239 strikeouts — averaging nearly 11 strikeouts per nine innings.

“We gave him up to get what we feel is a very good major league hitter who can be an important part of our lineup,” Pirates general manager Dave Littlefield said. “There were a number of teams interested in Oliver. Sometimes we tend to forget about things quickly, but it was just two years ago that he leads the major leagues in strikeouts per nine innings. We feel Oliver has a bright future, but we have a lot of pitching depth and we were able to use some of it to acquire a good young player.”

Nady was batting .264 with 14 homers and 40 RBIs in 75 games during his first season with the Mets. He was acquired last offseason from San Diego in a deal for outfielder Mike Cameron.

Nady missed about a month this season following an appendectomy.

The Mets will assign Perez to Triple-A Norfolk and recall prized prospect Lastings Milledge from the Tides to share playing time in right field with Endy Chavez.

Called up when Nady was sidelined, Milledge batted .233 with three homers and 12 RBIs during an up-and-down month in the majors earlier this season.


“This kid likes the challenge. I have a feeling he will step up,” Minaya said.

The Mets, scheduled to open a three-game series in Florida against the Marlins on Tuesday, have a 14-game lead over second-place Philadelphia in the NL East.

But suddenly, they have a different look, too.

“I think we’re going to run more,” Minaya said. “We’re probably going to be able to cover more range in the outfield, which is going to make our pitching better.”

Sanchez has been a key member of New York’s outstanding bullpen, going 5-1 with a 2.60 ERA in 49 games. He was acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers last offseason.

Aaron Heilman could assume Sanchez’s role as the primary setup man for closer Billy Wagner.

“I really expect Aaron Heilman to step up and do a better job than he’s been doing,” Minaya said.

Perez reported to spring training last season with the Pirates in poor shape and never did get straightened out. He went 7-5 with a 5.85 ERA and 97 strikeouts.

The left-hander was 2-10 with a 6.63 ERA in 15 starts for Pittsburgh this season before being optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on June 29. In six minor league starts, he was 1-3 with a 5.63 ERA.

Each of the Pirates’ last two pitching coaches, Spin Williams (2005) and Jim Colbert (2006), has had trouble getting Perez to develop a consistent delivery.

He releases pitches from all angles and arm slots, and that leads to big variations in his velocity. He was regularly in the 97 mph range in 2004, but now often drops into the high 80s.

“He has some upside,” Minaya said. “We think Perez has some potential to be turned around.”

That's a mighty big mouth for early August.

Regardless of who your favorite teams are, there's plenty of baseball left to be played, boys.

Signed, the Jawja Peach.

P. S. In 1991 I watched my Braves pull out of last place in the division, they were in the Western Div. back then, worst to first. The Dodgers just didn't see it coming, PeteMan. When it was all over, the Braves were digesting tail pipe smoke pretty good. Even though they lost to the Twins in the Series, next to '75, that WS will go down as the best ever played in my opinion.

I love my Braves, PeteMan. When ya trash 'em, ya trashin' me....and I ain't just whistlin' Dixie.

When my boys are talkin' smack, I call it momentum!

Sorry, Libby, but facts are facts. Your team was talking trash with a losing record. The Mets did their talking on the field last weekend. The Era of the Chop is mercifully over.



So, the Mets took the series. They may maintain the NLEast, they may choke, that's the beauty of baseball. I've seen it all before and I'm no where near as old as you, Otie.

From 1966 until 1982, I hung out at the ball park when there weren't enough people showing up to have a decent car wreck! I hung on through ostrich races, Wally Wallenda walks over the stadium and the 1982 trade of Brett Butler AND Ted Turner's firing of my beloved Joe Torre!! I again held on until 1991 when I watched my Braves knock LA out of the playoffs! When I saw that, I said, they can take this thing and they almost did. That '91 Series was one hell of a Series. My Braves only get respect from Braves fans, that's ok, fine with me. Yeah, facts are facts....the Mets took the series from the Braves. It could mean everything, it could mean nada and that's a fact.

The Mets could hit a skid and start losing games, they could start having injuries....anything can happen. It ain't over 'til it's over. Right, Yogi?

Hi Libby, sorry to start this up and then miss you the last day or 2 ... Nice to meet you officially...

Well, I agree with you about a couple things, and that'll take less time than what we don't see eye to eye on

The '91 Word Series WAS awesome, a credit to the game.

And anyone who suffers with their team through bad times has the right to say whatever thay want, in my book, so I respect you as a true fan. I ought to know. I'm a Mets fan my whole 43 years and you can see what we have to show... precious little. I stand by my boys just like you stand by yours and that's the way to be a fan. So cheers. I'd also add that it's too bad the Braves don't have more fans like you, then maybe they'd generate enough of a crowd in the first round of the playoffs to win a series.

But if I had a big mouth for August, as you say, what do you make of someone 5 games under .500 as of the end of July yakking about how they're gonna win the division and how the Mets ain't $hit on the eve of the series? Now THAT'S a big mouth! They can BELIEVE that all they want. But if I were a Braves fan I'd be pretty pist right about now at Andruw, Marcus, and Frenchy for poppin' off and saying it out loud to the press...

If one of my Mets talks crap like that it p's me off. (And the answer is, no I'm not crazy about Lastings MIlledge for that very reason.) We fans can do it all we want, that's part of the fun. But I don't like big mouth ball players acting high and mighty, whether they're wearing a Braves uni or the good ol' orange and blue.

So, Libby, it's nice to chat with you, keep bringing your A game and we'll see who's in who's rear view come October. And of course this is all just one year. As fans of any team besides the stupid Yankees, we've all lived through more lean times than good... In the mean time, I'll just say that I am a man who loves a whole lot of things about Georgia, not least being the music, the food, the red clay, the Earl in Atlanta where my band was privileged to play a couple times, and most of all the women.

But the Braves? Hell, after all the misery they've put us through I'd sooner root for the hated Yankees than the Braves!

Man, any Mets fan who is for real should worry more about the NL East and the Braves, at least when the Mets are any good.... I got tireds of the "Yankees Suck" chants at Shea a long time ago...





































OK, so I'm LYING!

I don't agree with their antics, however, I'll comment based on my opinion. This a very frustrated Atlanta Braves team, they are used to winning, especially Andruw, who's been with the Braves his entire career in the big game. Last year was a huge let down, this year has been the absolute pits. I chose to overlook their comments for this reason. I'm willing to bet Cox, TP and players like Smoltzy gave these guys a talkin' to. This team sports a reputation of being a class act.

This series was important and it very well could be a season where we see our beloved Braves finish in the cellar. We desperately need pitching and in my opinion, as much as I respect Bobby Cox, we need a new manager. I decided that last year when the Braves blew it in the Divisions.

Andruw and Marcus are great players, I don't want to see then get caught up in the "Barry Bonds Persona". Cox can still bring them down a notch or two, that he's quite capable of. I have no doubt these guys went in to this series thinking and believing what they were spouting, brother.

If these guys can get healthy and start scoring runs to back up their iffy pitching, they can finish above .500. I'd be happy with that because I've always lived by the motto...."there's always next year to look forward to."

You too, and yes we will. I almost hate to tell you this, but I'm about as rabid over the Yanks and I am the Braves. I inherited a love of Yankees baseball from my grandaddy. He was also a Democrat, but he couldn't help that, I suppose.

Let's play ball!!!! Next time you're in Atlanta, I'll treat you to a fine bourbon.

You'd hate me on paper! I'm a Democrat Yankee and Brave hatin' Mets fan...

But that's the beauty of the world, I'll buy the second round!

Sort of ironically, though, Libby, my New Deal Democrat New Englan born n' bred Daddy was a Braves fan!


The BOSTON Braves, and even the Milwaukee Braves, but when they moved to Atlanta, he gave up and signed on with the '62 Mets.

But in my household -- even now after my Pop died at age 90 a few yrs ago -- Warren Spahn is considered, along with Tom Seaver, the only truly sainted of us fallen humans ever to walk the earth.

(We also have plenty of room in our hearts for Eddie Matthews, Hank Aaron, Joe Adcock, and the "Spahn and Sain and pray for rain" poem!)

So were my grandaddy and daddy. My grandaddy didn't live long enough to see the Braves come to Atlanta....and I seriously think they would both be hanging in the middle of the road with me on politics today, lmao!

I do know for a fact, they would sip the bourbon with me. God bless 'em!

Hiya, Mouse!

I love you, Libby, but this hurts me in my heart. How could a refined Southern belle such as yourself root for such a cold mechanical industry that calls themselves, of all things, the Yankees?



I love you too, Otie.

In a word...Torre!
