Hot or Not: We’re in the Home Stretch Edition!

An article by posted on September 20, 2008

The Mets climbed back into first place after a 9-5 victory over the much maligned Braves. Oh, and that one team in Philadelphia got walloped by the Marlins (Yay Marlins!) Welcome to another installment of Hot or Not. I’m hoping the Mets can carry this column into the post season. Daniel Murphy and Nick Evans […]

As reported in the Buffalo News, the Buffalo Bisons have called a press conference for Monday morning in Dunn Tire Park to officially announce the New York Mets will be their new parent club next season. “This is great news for Buffalo sports fans. The Mets and Bisons are a natural marriage, and one that […]

Dan Murphy Vaults Mets Back Into First Place With Key Hit Against The Braves

The Mets overcame some shoddy defense to come back and beat the Braves by a score of 9-5 thanks to a huge pinch hit two-run double by rookie sensation Dan Murphy. The game started out with Jose Reyes hitting a leadoff first inning homerun to put the Mets up early, but it soon became clear […]

Exit Starting Pitcher, Enter Heartbreak

An article by posted on September 19, 2008

A little less than two years ago, the Mets bullpen was heralded as the most elite in the National League. It was set up perfectly and had all of the elements that constructed an ideal committee to spell the tired starting pitching staff. My how times have changed! When a starter visibly didn’t have his stuff […]

Playoff Roster Scenario – Part 1 of 3

An article by posted on September 19, 2008

As I wrote in a post earlier this week, the Mets are making the playoffs. Whether it’s by winning the division or winning the Wild Card, I have absolutely no doubt the Mets are in. That being said, I was wondering about a few decisions the Mets may soon have to face in constructing their […]

Why Doesn’t Anyone Blame David Wright?

An article by posted on September 19, 2008

I love David Wright as much as the next Mets fan (okay, maybe even more) but he seems to be immune to any blame for the Mets current affairs. I got excited as David finally reached the .300 mark last week and I cried when David entered a 1-for-18 slide that puts his current average […]

The Mets Need More Than Church To Save Them

An article by posted on September 18, 2008

All during the period Ryan Church was recovering from his post concussion syndrome, I couldn’t wait for him to return and help save the Mets’ floundering offense. Now that he has returned, I can’t help but wonder if he’s the same exciting player we saw in April and May, or the mediocre player he was […]

Reyes and Righties

An article by posted on September 18, 2008

Just another September in Flushing, and we’re in the midst of a struggle between the lines. Every night brings minor strokes and heart attacks to the life of every Mets fan. Last night, it was stated that Jose Reyes has not been feeling comfortable at the plate against the left-handed pitchers. That gives a huge explanation as to […]

Shave Zone = Mets Cancer

An article by posted on September 18, 2008

I’m not sure if you noticed, but I have. Where is Giuseppe Franco? As much as that commercial is annoying, I think he’s the one that has the winning magic for us. Not Jerry Manuel, not Mr. Met, not Ramon Castro. It’s Giuseppe Franco. His “Procede” commercials clogged SNY for about 90 percent of the […]

Another Casualty – Easley Could Be Done For The Season

An article by posted on September 18, 2008

Less than two days ago the Mets learned that Fernando Tatis separated his shoulder and would be out for the rest of the season. Last night we learned that Damion Easley is dangerously close to that same fate. Easley revealed yesterday that he had actually suffered a small tear of his right quadriceps muscle. The tear […]
