Well, here we go, another fall and winter filled with free agents and trade rumors. Granted, part of me always enjoys the off season. Who is going where? Why and for how much? Let me just say that losing that 7 game lead hurt almost as badly as that Yadier Molina home run in the NLCS last year. Jimmy Rollins in my opinion was wrong. The Phillies weren’t the team to beat, the Mets allowed […]
Last night I had the most wonderful dream. I was back in New York and at Shea Stadium for the last game of the 2007 World Series. The Mets and Indians had played themselves into a 3- 3 series tie thanks to some late inning heroics by Guillermo Mota, who struck out the side in back to back innings in game 6. This game was no contest though, as the Mets cruised to a 12 […]
I think most baseball fans (including me); have a chip on their shoulder concerning their favorite teams (unless they are Skankee fans that believe their team could win a title with one hand tied behind their backs). Every time a bad play is made fans like us automatically assume that the game and even the season may be lost. So maybe we have a little Eeyore in us, always expecting that rainy day even if […]
All of this week it seems we have spent considerable time lobbying for one of our own beloved Mets, David Wright, to win the National League Most Valuable Player Award. Actually, David has been making his OWN case for most of the season, everyone else finally seems to be catching on now. In my personal (and admittedly biased) opinion, he should very well be the league MVP. Especially if the Mets can beat Jimmy “Big […]
As I’m certain that many of the Shea faithful can relate, the Mets performance from the previous day has at least a small effect on how we approach the next day. Many times we go to work, school or anywhere else with our heads hung low in shame and insides tied in knots. Even with yesterdays sad 7- 0 loss to the Reds and a mediocre 5- 5 road trip, there are many reasons we […]
After the Mets (and our) recent nightmare yesterday, many thoughts raced through my mind as to what my blog should be about today. I would really like to stay cheery and positive, but it would just feel like I’m being phony. So I have decided to go the route of a “fake it till you make it” attitude and just do something completely random and nonsensical…which happens to be a specialty of mine. That being […]
Much has been made this year, (especially by me) of the lack of passion and excitement that has been missing from the Mets this year. With the exception of a Paulie LoDuca blow- up it has been pretty monotonous. It’s hard for me to say that when we have the most exciting player in baseball on the team in Jose Reyes… Thankfully, we are soon to get the boost we have been waiting for in […]
As pessimistic as a Mets fan can be at times (especially at the end of a close game), I am beginning to feel a small sense of hope. The tune of many bogs including one of mine has been whether or not Omar Minaya was going to do something to provide a spark in the Mets clubhouse. I think we all were in agreement that the Mets play prior to the Nats series was more […]
Sullivan County, New York is where I was born and raised. Only minutes from the original Woodstock site and 2 hours west of my Graceland. That is, Shea Stadium in Queens, New York. Today, I live in a small town in rural Alabama called Clanton. The area is nice, people are great and the fried food is plentiful. However, the people all share a common fault. They are Braves fans. My only saving grace is […]
