For Whom The “Bell” Tolls

An article by posted on July 15, 2009 0 Comments

What a punkass Heath Bell turned out to be. I’m not saying that because the National League lost to the junior circuit (Again!), but because I just read his post game comments and it showed me what a jerk he really is. For those of you who made the wise decision not to watch last night’s […]

For as bad as the Mets have looked at times this season (and I have advocated blowing up the team or just not paying attention to them anymore), it’s almost miraculous that they are not worse than three games under .500 and 6 ½ games out of first place.  When you think about the lousy […]

An article by posted on July 15, 2009 0 Comments

Indications are that Martinez is now a Phil for something like a million bucks with an incentives package worth $1.5 million, with an official announcement just hours away. Recall back in spring that Martinez supposedly wanted 5 million for the year, and this was a leading reason the Mets wouldn’t bite. Well, to many it made […]

Madoff Stole $700 Million From Wilpon!

Mets beat writer Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reported a little while ago in his blog that Bernie Madoff stole $700 million from the Wilpons.  That is a lot higher than the originally reported $300 million that the Wilpon’s allegedly lost.  Since the scandal broke late last year the Wilpons have not publicly […]

In July 2005 the New York Mets signed 16 year old Fernando Martinez.  F-Mart was given a signing bonus of $1.4 million and from that point on was labeled as the future of the New York Mets.  Omar Minaya said of F-Mart when he signed that: “What we saw in [Martinez] was a 16-year-old kid […]

So here we are on the verge of another mid-summer classic and my poor Mets find themselves 6 1/2 games out of first place with three teams to catch, and that’s the good news. The bad news is that we’re 6 1/2 games back in the wild card race with nine teams to catch. Geez… It’s […]

An article by posted on July 14, 2009 0 Comments

Tuesday night will be baseball’s annual All Star Game, from Bush Stadium in St. Louis Missouri. St. Louis is a great baseball town, and the Cardinals are one of Major League Baseball’s most historic and great baseball teams. Having said that, I have no interest at all in the All Star Game. This morning I […]
