Willie Randolph: I’m Not Taking Anything For Granted This Year!

I just got my Mets email subscription and it was a letter from Mets manager, Willie Randolph. Check it out… Our team is ready to go. That’s the message I want to send to you Mets fans as we prepare for today’s opener in South Florida. The goal this year is to make our final […]

Brian Stokes DFA’d Plus Here’s Your Opening Day Lineup

An article by posted on March 30, 2008

Right handed pitcher Brian Stokes was designated for assignment. I think the Mets may have called this one wrong. Even if you really believed that Joe Smith would out-produce Stokes, something that was not even debatable, why not keep Smith in the minors for the first month and see if Brian Stokes was as good […]

Surprise, surprise… For those of you including myself, who thought Joe Smith and Mike Pelfrey would begin the season in New Orleans… think again! Both Smith and Pelfrey were all smiles today when they were told by Willie Randolph they had made the team. Pelfrey and his 8.15 Spring ERA will take the mound against […]

Opening Day…Well, They’re Not Exactly Jitters

An article by posted on March 28, 2008

The Mets have not decided on a fifth starter this far into Spring Training. They’re saying Jorge Sosa may get the job, with both Brian Stokes and Joe Smith able to prove themselves worthy of the bullpen. Both Mike Pelfrey and El Duque aren’t ready to start, but I think Pelfrey will be ready before […]

Who Says Spring Training Stats Are Meaningless?

An article by posted on March 28, 2008

The Mets are ready to bring home the brass ring. Everything I’ve seen this spring tells me all I need to know about how dominating the Mets will be in 2008. With 19 Spring Training wins already in the books, it shows that the Mets are ready to move on and get this party started […]

The “Wright” Choice in 2008…

An article by posted on March 27, 2008

I hardly ever get mixed up in politics.   I find it at best to be boring and headache inducing, not to mention listening to divisive politicians who rarely have the best interests of the people at heart.

But all Mets fans know that when Steve Phillips says that the Mets will have the best overall record in the National League, you know we’re sitting pretty! After years and years of […]

Is Ryan Church The Answer In Rightfield?

An article by posted on March 26, 2008

The more I see Lastings Milledge putting up explosive numbers this spring, the more I find myself looking at Ryan Church and scratching my head. Lastings Milledge currently leads the Nationals in at-bats with 66. Ahh… Isn’t it great to be young and healthy? He also is hitting .348 with a .411 on-base percentage. He […]

Maybe Willie Randolph Learned A Lesson Afterall…

An article by posted on March 25, 2008

One of my biggest gripes against Willie Randolph has always been his laid back, one day at a time approach to the game. Don’t get me wrong, I love Willie and I think he’s the perfect manager for the team, but his lack of a sense of urgency really bugs the hell out of me. Last […]
