Talking Mets Minors With Mets Prospect Hub

A couple of weeks ago I had a chance to send out a few general questions to our old pal Tejesh of Mets Prospect Hub. Tej was kind enough to take some time to share his thoughts about the Mets with regard to the First Year Player Draft and some other minor league things I […]

Collins Calls Mets Flat, I Call Last Night’s Performance A Joke

Terry Collins didn’t mince words last night, and his pre-game concerns of how he sensed a lack of energy from the Mets inside the clubhouse before the game, proved to be prophetic. “We were a little flat,” Collins said. “They’re human beings and the adrenaline knock out for a while, and the fact that they […]

Mets Go Streaking..Again

June was set to be a real test for this team.  More than 20 games against teams which boast better than .500 records stood in the Mets path a few short weeks ago and ultimately, they’ve navigated the month well, but that’s not to say the month of June hasn’t been frustrating. Win three..lose three..win […]

Mark Cohoon was absolutely crushed today, giving up seven runs on eight hits while striking out one and […]

Stranded Runners Doom Mets In 5-3 Loss To The Cubs

Well, we dropped this one to the Cubs 5-3 and these losses are getting hard to stomach. Summary So… Dillon Gee started this one and did not pitch horribly – but he did not pitch well enough to win on this Tuesday night. To be fair, it really was not a bad pitching performance, but […]

Mets Drop The Ball In 6-1 Loss To Cubs

After a rough Subway Series, the Mets traveled to Chicago to visit the great Wrigley Field to play the Cubs. Johan Santana started for the Mets and has been trying to regroup as he hasn’t pitched that spectacular since his no-hitter. He probably didn’t think he’d have a dueling war against the Cubs’ Travis Wood […]

Parnell Back As Mets Closer… Hold On To Your Butts…

Bobby Parnell is on the hot seat again as an oblique injury to Frank Francisco has once again led the 27-year old reliever to assume the role of Mets closer. It’s a role he’s held three times before, but never could retain for more than a week or two and never with any success. While […]

Introduction by Stephen Hanks When the New York Mets announced their All-Time Team last week in honor of the franchise’s 50th Anniversary (Davey Johnson as manager over Gil Hodges? No freakin’ way!), it was no surprise that the first baseman was Keith Hernandez. But for Mets fans who go all the way back to the […]

Regrets… I Have A Few…

How many times have we seen this already this season… I’m talking about Terry Collins lamenting about what he could have done to prevent another bone-jarring moment in a Mets loss. He has compiled enough material to complete his own personal volume of a Book of Lamentations. Last night, was another typical Mets loss you […]
