Jon Heyman of SI.com dishes out some Mets tidbits on his blog the Daily Scoop. If you’re not already a subscriber to Jon’s blog, you should be.

The Three Stooges Redux

An article by posted on October 8, 2009 0 Comments

My head nearly spun off it’s axis Monday listening to Jeff (Wilpon), Omar (Minaya), and David (Howard), aka, “The Three Stooges,” putting a spin on the worse season in franchise history over 50.000 Watts. One sounded like an idiot son, another should be fired for cronyism, and the third (what the heck was he doing […]

You’ve heard it again and again and again… Great pitching wins championships.

Here is some background about me in regards to Daniel Murphy. I fully admit I am a “mark,” for him. In August of 2008, I went on mets.com and bought a blue Mets t-shirt with Mr. Met on the front and Murphy’s name and number on the back. It’s a pretty awesome shirt to be […]

A met fan can only hope that when he’s praising a player for performance in September, it’s because he played well in the games that mattered. Obviously, that’s not the case. However, I still feel the need remains to identify and praise the players that showcase their skills over an extended period of time. It’s […]

An article by posted on October 7, 2009 0 Comments

I had no intentions of watching the one game playoff between the Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers last night. Somehow, almost as if it was fate, I came upon the game while channel surfing and paused only because I heard Ron Darlings voice. “Wow’, I thought to myself, “at least one 2009 Met made it […]
