Clutch's Mets 2008 Awards!

Here are my awards for the 2008 Mets..Feel free to disagree with any of them.
MVP: Carlos Delgado - no doubt in my mind is this guy the MVP of this team..He is the MAIN reason we are still in the race today..He seems to come up with big hit after big hit and leads the team in homeruns and RBI

Most Valuable Pitcher: Johan Santana - It's pretty amazing that this guy only has 13 wins heading in to tonight..He should have 20+ yet this bullpen blew leads for him over and over again..With a 2.70 ERA..This guy is the stud on the Mets staff.

Clutchest player: Carlos Delgado - Here is another award for Carlos,  This one being the most clutch award..Again he seems to always come up with the big hit and is playing big down the stretch.

Best Defensive Player: David Wright - I'm not sure how many of you watch Baseball Tonight. But David Wright is on there almost every night with a great play.  This guy gives it his all.

Best Reliever: Billy Wagner - Even though this guy has been hurt, he still has to be the Mets best reliever this season...Not many relievers on the Mets squad this year have been good...So Billy takes this award..

Young Player to come through: Mike Pelfrey - I thought he has earned an award this year..He has really come through...He is now a big game pitcher and will be a great one to come.

Those are my awards...Disagree with any that you want to.

Cardinals vs. Dolphins recap

A very Nice win for the Arizona Cardinals..I'll break it down.

Kurt Warner did an excellent job against the Dolphins.  He was 19/24 for 361 yards and 3 Touchdowns..  If he continues to play well this team will not only improve...But watch out..The Cards may be a sleeper.

Edgerrin James ran for 55 yards on 18 attempts..His longest run was 13 yards...A decent day for Edge..Look for him to break out in one of these weeks.

The wide receiving duo of Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald were fantastic as well..Both had 6 receptions and above 135 yards.  Anquan Boldin caught 3 Touchdowns...This duo is very dangerous.

The defense did a nice job...Holding the Dolphins to just 10 points..The offensive outburst probably gave the Cardinals a little rest on defense knowing that they didn't have to get a stop.

All and all..The Arizona Cardinals are 2-0..Watch out for this young team.

Jags week two.

UGH..Another loss for the Jaguars...This time to the Bills.This time our problem was the defense.
The defense could NOT get the stop we needed...We had the lead 16-10 and then gave up a Touchdown with 4:21 left to play...Then later gave up a field goal, making it 20-16, and a field goal for the Jaguars would not have won the game.No Matter what..Next week is a must win...We are really struggling right now..Lets get out of it!

Jags week one.

    This was an Embarrasing loss..All around..David Garrard had a bad day.  We couldn't run the ball for our lives...

I'll start with the offense.

    David Garrard had a bad day.  He threw just 3 interceptions all year last year...He already has two..He did go 23-25 for 215 yards an 1TD but we need a better performance out of him next time out.
    The Running was absolutely awful...We have one of the best running back crews in the league...Yet they could only run for 31 yards on a lowly 14 carries...That's awful..
    The offensive line was the worst of all...David Garrard got sacked 7 times..It could have been more to!   David Garrard was running for his life all day long.This has to improve or look for a long season.

Next the defense...They did a nice job today..They only gave up 17 points today..I would have liked only giving up 10 or less though..But overall nice job.

Special Teams
    This was a nice surprise for us today..We had nice field position all day..If the special teams can keep this up...The offense will come around..

Disappointing loss...Especially to a division rival like the Titans..We have to come back and get a win against the Bills next week
