Many will say “Yes” but as usual, I don’t agree with the majority of what I’ve been hearing. The team has done little to improve, operating under the belief or the “company line” that guys such as Big Pelf will improve or that John Maine, and the ever-enigmatic Ollie Perez are going to return to their 2007 form. This may be asking a lot for a team that has yielded multiple disappointing seasons for the […]
This morning when I opened up my email I was both shocked and surprised to see an email from the Mets saying they were offering six pack ticket programs this year, and we could order them right away. For years I was seven pack holder at Shea Stadium. Last season, when Citifield opened the Mets did away with the seven packs, in favor of a 15 game pack. Sorry, from both a financial and domestic […]
Three straight NL East crowns and one World Series victory have catapulted the Philadelphia Phillies into Atlanta Braves territory as far as Mets rivalries go. There is nothing worse than obnoxious Phillies fans coming up the Turnpike and invading Citi Field as the Phillies beat up on the Mets as they have done the past three years. There is again reason to fear more of the same in 2010. The Phillies have a lock on […]
As Hojo’s Mojo posted yesterday afternoon J.J. Putz in an interview last week said that: “When the trade went down last year, I never really had a physical with the Mets.” In 2008 Putz was ineffective due to injury in his pitching arm. Can anyone name a franchise in any other sports that runs a team like this? Before a player comes to your team you give him a complete physical, especially when he has a […]
It’s quite possible that the Wilpons do have a plan. It’s a long term plan and you might not like it because it doesn’t include trying to win at all costs in 2010. Maybe the main concern that Mets management has is the health of their current star players. Carlos Beltran is hurt and Jose Reyes is coming back from a major injury. Carlos Delgado is not worth re-signing due to his age and chronic […]
Is there any doubt that Omar Minaya is searching for leadership to help change the chemistry of his ballclub without gutting the “core” of this team? The Jason Bay signing was not just to fulfill the need for power in the lineup, it was done also with the hope that Bay would help fill a void for leadership that exists. I’m not trying to disparage any current member of the Mets. David Wright will eventually […]
The Washington Nationals lost 103 games last season. It would have been worse had they not been saved by a season ending seven game winning streak. Their pitching was in chaos all season long. Relief pitchers blew 25 saves during the season. They had only one starter who made more than 19 starts. They have made several moves this winter, mostly investing in pitching. It’s a safe prediction that they will improve from last year’s […]
Occasionally, all of us become downtrodden, pessimistic, and critical of the Mets. Even the most faithful and patient Met fans have problems with this. We vacillate between positive and negative storylines and opinions in our comments, our radio calls, our blog writing and reporting. I’d like to take a positive look at what the Mets have done and give hope to all of us for 2010… The need for good health takes precedent over all […]
The Mets sent a press release out yesterday about the Dave Matthews Band shows just announced for Citi Field, on July 16 and 17. Sure, this is significant for you DMB fans (tickets go on sale February 26), but the problem is, it also might be the most significant event at Citi Field this season. Because by mid-July, it’s quite possible the Mets could be out of the playoff race. It’s easy to be skeptical […]
