There was an article by Mike Puma in yesterday’s NY Post that caught my attention. Mr. Puma states that Jeff Wilpon wants to trade Carlos Beltran, even though a trade appears unlikely because of his salary and his recent injury history. Although it is true that Beltran has not performed like the Carlos Beltran of old, I believe the Mets are being too quick on pulling the “let’s trade Carlos Beltran” trigger. Let’s review a […]
There’s a joke going around in the Mets clubhouse these days. Perhaps you’ve heard about it. It involves the underachieving, soon-to-be 35-year-old second baseman who wanted out of New York despite the fact that he was given a long-term contract worth more money than anyone else would have paid him. What’s that? You haven’t heard the joke yet? Well, let me tell you the story about Luis Castillo, the man who recently told the New […]
Former Mets pitcher Pedro Martinez was in New York yesterday for a promotion and sat down with Max Dickstein of amNewYork for a short Q & A session. It was your typical interview until Pedro was asked for his opinion on the Mets and the Yankees. He answered the Yankee part of the question in one sentence, but had quite a few things to say about the Mets. It started out so innocently… […]
There is a lot of turmoil in Mets-tropolis. R.A. Dickey was clashing with Jerry Manuel when the manager removed him from yesterday’s game. The fans are clashing with the front office for not doing anything to improve the team. What’s a blogger to do with all this clashing going on? You guessed it. It’s song parody time! Earlier today, Joe D took a song by Black Sheep and wrote a humorous piece about the approaching […]
For many years, environmentalists have been looking for energy sources that do not consume fuel or contribute to the excessive amounts of pollution in the air. One of the energy sources that satisfy those criteria is wind. And one of the best wind generators in recent times is right here in New York, wearing #44 for the Mets. That’s right, Mets fans. Jason Bay’s daily strikeouts might be bad for the Mets, but they’re quite […]
The All-Star Game isn’t until tomorrow, but my thoughts have already turned to the post-Break schedule for the Mets. The Mets are one of nine teams in the hotly contested National League playoff race. The other eight teams are either leading their respective divisions, leading the Wild Card race or within two games of the Wild Card leader. The Mets will play six of those eight teams between July 15 (the first game after the […]
As Major League Baseball moves into its All-Star Break, it’s time to reflect on the Mets and what they need to do to improve the team in the second half. Whereas many people have been clamoring for another starting pitcher before the trading deadline on July 31, I don’t think that’s the answer. In fact, I think the team just needs to improve some things internally, things that have nothing or very little to do […]
The Mets and the Braves are currently battling it out atop the NL East this year, evoking memories of classic Mets-Braves rivalries of yesteryear. The final pages of the script for the year 2010 have yet to be written, but the Mets gave their fans a memorable chapter in the Mets-Braves rivalry ten years ago today in a game played at Shea Stadium. It was the year 2000. The Y2K scare had come and gone, […]
Did you hear the one about the comedian and the former first baseman who called a baseball game for the New York Mets? No? Well, come tonight, you will. Tonight’s game against the Detroit Tigers will feature legendary comedian and lifelong Mets fan, Jerry Seinfeld, joining Keith Hernandez and Gary Cohen in the broadcast booth for at least three innings (and maybe more). SNY’s vice president of production, Curt Gowdy, Jr. said the […]
