Move Over Jon And Kate – Here Come The New York Mets

An article by posted on August 20, 2010 0 Comments

 ”Just when I wanted out…they pull me BACK IN!” Michael Corleone said it best in the Godfather III as the Don of the family who finally wanted to go legit and leave behind his life of crime, murder and corruption. I felt the same way this past MLB draft when the Mets once again – […]

Morning Grind: White Flag, MLBPA/Mets, F-Mart, The Return Of Pedro

An article by posted on August 20, 2010 0 Comments

WAVE THE WHITE FLAG The Mets have clearly given up on the season. The Braves’ getting Derrek Lee just strengthens their position. It’s a rental for a 34-year-old, Type B free agent with back issues but it shows that our rivals want to win more than we do. Amazingly, they keep lying to us every post game. Say the words, Flushing. NO […]

Fulfill Your Mets Fantasy

An article by posted on August 20, 2010 0 Comments

It’s hard to be a Mets fan. The Wilpons are broke, players avoid Flushing because of the turmoil, Jerry can’t manage well in game, Omar has lost “it”, and the Mets at the plate have looked atrocious when it counts. All common and valid arguments. The Mets are not making the playoffs. No team with a sub .500 […]

One Small Mistake For Misch, One Giant Loss For Mets-Kind. Astros Win 3-2

An article by posted on August 19, 2010 0 Comments

Houston, we have a problem! It’s the Mets offense. The Mets offense blows it for the Mets as they lose the series finally, 3-2 to the Astros. Pat Misch was pitching well until the seventh inning when he gave up a three-run homerun. The offense combined for two runs on three hits. Bullpen was good […]

You’ll get a kick out of this video that’s making its way through the Mets blogosphere today. It’s a Training Video for Mets closers. It comes from The Pretty Good Sports Show which features some funny videos they produce and post on You Tube. It looks like it’s open season again on mocking the Mets. Of […]

Federal authorities have indicted Roger Clemens on charges of making false statements to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs. The 19-page indictment charges Clemens with three counts of making false statements and two counts of perjury in connection with his February 2008 testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. I bet […]

The Mets are reportedly activating catcher Rod Barajas from the disabled list and expect to have him available for tonight’s game against the Astros. As the Mets face a decision over how long to retain three catchers. Josh Thole has earned the majority of the starts lately with his solid play, but Barajas could cut into Thole’s playing time, […]

Don’t Call It a Boycott: The Great CitiField Sit Out

An article by posted on August 19, 2010 0 Comments

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Joe D for his support in promoting the CitiField Sit Out.  The sit out is an experiment, borne of some discussions on Twitter, via several ideas on Facebook and other social media, based on Mets fans’ general feelings towards the team. I have often said that to […]

Hey Wilpons, You Can’t Have It Both Ways

An article by posted on August 19, 2010 0 Comments

After last night’s 14 inning marathon, I was very proud of the outstanding job by both R.A. Dickey and our bullpen. The bullpen has shined since Hisanori Takahashi returned. Tak, Bobby Parnell, Elmer Dessens and Manny Acosta completely shutdown the Astros for  five and two-third innings of solid relief, enabling the Mets to eventually break the […]
