The New Philosophy

An article by posted on October 29, 2010 0 Comments

Like many of you, I have been paying attention to the World Series.  I knew if just one of either the Phillies or the Yankees were in it, I’d have a problem because I’d be too emotionally invested.  If it was both, I wouldn’t be able to watch it at all.  However, two teams that […]

A Victim of His Own Success

Admission is the first step to beating addiction, particularly when you’ve been living in denial for so long.  To that I have a big declaration to make here, and I wanted to share it with fellow Mets fans. I have come to the conclusion that 2006 was an accident. Hi Mets fans, my name is […]

The Mets 2011 PreDICKEYment

An article by posted on September 13, 2010 0 Comments

In a year rife with moral victories and the subsequent heartbreak that comes along with it, R.A. Dickey has been one of the more pleasant surprises with the 2010 Mets.  I’m sure most Mets fans weren’t expecting much from a 35 year-old quasi-journeyman knuckleballer (I certainly wasn’t), we can now break bread that R.A. Dickey […]

Conspiracy Theorists

This latest media hub bub regarding three Mets really has my blood boiling.  No, not about what you think – the fact that it’s a story to begin with, that’s what gets me.  I guess the Mets having another subpar season isn’t enough for local sports writers these days and adding fuel to the Mets […]

The Kids Are All Right…We Hope

Strange ways, here we come… I believe that with the trade of Jeff Francoeur last night to the Texas Rangers, the Mets have essentially conceded the season. Not that I truly believed there is a “chance” that things could turn around, but you can never tell with baseball.  I guess I’m a bit naive that […]

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 […]

The Untouchables

Almost as predictable as the Mets falling short in the wins column these days is the projected fall-out that occurs after each loss.  Every beat writer or sports news outlet is trying to find the scapegoat.  I find that laughable, since I believe Jerry Manuel, Howard Johnson or Omar Minaya are symptoms of a larger […]

Playing Not To Lose

Along with SNY analyst Bobby Ojeda. fellow former 1986-’er Darryl Strawberry is calling out the team for not only leadership issues (or lack thereof) but for not putting “fear” into their opponents.  “They laugh at these Mets,” says Strawberry.  While I agree with him to a certain extent, he has to understand, as well as […]

D.O.A.: Deadline on Arrival

An article by posted on July 22, 2010 0 Comments

If the past helps dictate the present, I have high doubts that Omar Minaya will make a move, any move, good or bad, to help this team at the trading deadline.  Why is that?  Well, when has he EVER been aggressive at the trading deadline?  Or with trades, period? I had a conversation on Twitter […]

A Victim of Circumstance

When I first heard rumbling during Spring Training that pitching phenom prospect Jenrry Mejia may be brought up with the big club to make Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya look good…erm, uh…I mean of course to get Mejia adjusted to major league hitting, well, I was dead set against the idea.  See, while the Mets […]
