Let me first tell you that I wrote this article a few days ago when the topic was at it’s most relevant point. I waited anxiously for my regular posting day to weigh in on the subject and I hope you grant me the courtesy of expressing my opinion on the matter. Baseball is a game built upon integrity, morals, respect and without fans it likely wouldn’t be the institution that it has grown to [...]
Let me start out by saying “kudos” to the fans at Shea last night for not booing Carlos Delgado. It’s time we put this whole thing behind us, once and for all, and just root, root, root for the home team! And just to set the record straight, I never said booing was nice. I don’t boo players. But the same way booing is not nice, neither is ignoring the fans when they want a [...]
I know it’s not my night, but since we have been rained out, what the heck… What is the problem? So Delgado didn’t give us a curtain call after his second homerun in yesterday’s win against the Braves. Boo-hoo. I mean a curtain call is nice and all, but there is no right or wrong time to do it. A player doesn’t have to do it. The fact that we are wasting time discussing Delgado’s [...]
Ok, ok. We were swept by the Cubs in a short two-game series in Chicago. The Cubs are going to be a force to be reckoned with in the National League this year, and since you can’t win ‘em all, at least we didn’t lose to a crummy team. Tonight begins the next chapter in the novel we call 2008… The Mets, without a doubt, must sweep the Nationals, in this also short two-game set. [...]
Ah, so much to talk about, where do I begin? Let’s start with the fans: In regards to whether or not Mets fans are over-reacting and booing the team too much, too soon: Get over it. This is New York and we expect nothing but the best. When Yankee fans explain that they are not sore losers, but rather, they just will not accept mediocrity, we shut up and listen. It works the same way [...]
Perhaps as crucial as adding Johan Santana was to the Mets pitching staff over the off-season, was general manager Omar Minaya’s decision to retain Mike Pelfrey. After all, at the time of the deal he was the most developed young pitcher the organization had to speak of. Philip Humber and Kevin Mulvey possessed promise, but were not deemed to be at the talent level of Pelfrey at the present time and probably not ever. [...]
How about a little fan poll to get the ball rolling today? Ok, which of the following best describes the 2008 Mets Home Opener? A. a total disappointment B. a nightmare on Roosevelt Ave C. an embarrassment beyond belief D. a belated April Fool’s joke E. all of the above If you said E, you win – unlike the Mets. Like many others, I had to work yesterday and could not watch the game nor [...]
Pedro Martinez is on the shelf….again. For at least the next six weeks he will sit along side left fielder Moises Alou, backup catcher Ramon Castro, and setup man Duaner Sanchez. The trip to the disabled list is certainly no foreign place for the 36 year-old righty. It had to be expected at some juncture this season, just not as immediate as 57 pitches into the campaign. The unfortunate hamstring “tweak” has much of Queens on [...]
First off, I don’t care if A-Rod makes more by himself than the entire Marlins team combined. I think all baseball players are overpaid to begin with. I love my Mets, but they are entertaining fans, not saving the world. And even though I applaud those who give their time and are involved in charity work, common sense says that they don’t need to be making millions to raise money for others. They could do that [...]
It was mid January; it had proved to be a disastrous off-season for the Mets. Following the well documented and highly criticized collapse of September, the teams most prominent need appeared it would again go unaddressed for a second consecutive off-season. Than, the 29th day on the 2008 calendar emerged, and it became a day in which the Mets starting rotation was instantly altered from being their chief enigma to arguably the most stout in [...]
Now that Spring Training is in "full bloom", I thought it would be fun to take a look at the differences between the game that our beloved Metsies play versus the other three major sports – football, basketball and hockey. "Tick-Tock, there is no clock!" Baseball is the only sport not controlled by a time clock. If it takes them a half hour or two hours to play one inning, that’s what it is. Possession [...]
