Boys of Summer

An article by posted on January 29, 2009

I love music. As I’m sure many of you can agree, there are poignant moments in our lives when we can not only remember what was happening, but also be able to put a song to it. Case in point, 1988 NLCS. Mets vs. Dodgers. The two teams traded punches back and forth until Game 7 […]

Let It Be

An article by posted on January 10, 2009

This offseason, Omar Minaya has fixed the bullpen. He hasn’t done much else; I would have signed Oliver Perez before Tim Redding. It’s such a shame they’re not even considering Perez. I would give him a multi-year deal over Derek Lowe any day of the week. With the departures of both Aaron Heilman and Scott […]

Cole Hamels Calls Mets “Choke Artists”

An article by posted on December 12, 2008

Cole Hamels had some choice words about the Mets yesterday. If you’re in a good mood, stop reading NOW: On our two September slides: “Last year and this year, I think we did believe that. Three years ago, we didn’t, because they smoked everybody. I really thought that was the year they were going to […]

Is CC Sabathia Really Worth It?

An article by posted on November 15, 2008

With the Yankees once again setting the bar for the free agency period by making a ridiculous offer to CC Sabathia, I find myself asking: “Is really worth 6+ years/$150+ million?” I don’t think he’s worth it. Sorry. While the Santana-Sabathia 1-2 punch would easily be the sickest in all of baseball, while we would […]

Luis Castillo, Meet Guillermo Mota

An article by posted on November 4, 2008

When we acquired Luis Castillo on Deadline Day 2007, I thought that getting an everyday second baseman was exactly what the club needed. While Castillo performed in August and September, the club historically collapsed (how long will we be hearing those words in a sentence?). Based on Castillo’s performance in August and September, Omar Minaya […]

Where’s Our Moment in the Sun?

An article by posted on October 30, 2008

I couldn’t bear to watch the conclusion of Game 5 last night. I turned it on to check the score and then immediately turned it back off. The Philadelphia Phillies, our arch rivals, had won the World Series. There’s a guy that lives on my street that has erected a Phillies flag and a Phillies […]

It Can Only Get Better From Here

An article by posted on October 17, 2008

Watching our arch rivals, the Philadelphia Phillies, get to the World Series guaranteed that this off-season is going to be particularly longer (and particularly more painful) than usual. But lets face it: the Phillies deserve it. They played with heart while we played like we were dead. Their offense came through in the clutch and […]

Trading Wright is the Wrong Move

An article by posted on October 4, 2008

Earlier this week, Mike Francesa suggested trading David Wright because he is nowhere to be found in pressure games. This idea to me is laughable, mainly because 25-year-old Gold Glove 3rd baseman who average 29 homers and 114 RBI and hit over .300 in their first four seasons grow on trees. Don’t we wish? So […]

2009 Is Gonna Be “Gangsta”

An article by posted on September 29, 2008

It was like the movie Groundhog Day. Except instead of waking up to Sonny & Cher every morning, once again, we are waking up the day after the Mets were eliminated from playoff contention in the last game of the season. Last year was heartbreaking because the lead lost and this year was heartbreaking because […]

Shea Deserves Better Than This

An article by posted on September 27, 2008

Okay, it might not be as storied as Yankee Stadium but it still doesn’t change the fact that Shea Stadium is also closing, being knocked down, and destined to be a parking lot for Citi Field. I’m angry with the Mets right now. It seems like every year around this time, we turn into a […]
