Atlanta Braves: (71-50; Leader) The Braves took two of three form the Washington Nationals. The Bravos will travel to Chicago to play the Cubs. So apparently, Derrek Lee won’t have far to travel. Philadelphia Phillies: (68-52; -2.5) The Phillies took two of three from the San Francisco Giants, (they did not face Lincecum), and will […]

In Defense of Minaya?

An article by posted on August 20, 2010 0 Comments

In yesterday’s New York Times, Tyler Kepner, who once was that paper’s Mets beat reporter, writes a speculative and thought-provoking piece about the WIlpons either canning or retaining Minaya. Basically, their choice at season’s end will be telling. Wilpon has said little about Minaya and Manuel, and at this point he seems likely to wait […]

The Rocket Has Crashed

An article by posted on August 20, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday afternoon was one of those days you don’t forget – usually it’s good news you remember, but the bad news often creeps up when you least expect it and therefore clings in memory. Roger Clemens – is there anyone in sports who doesn’t recognize that name?  And how many little boys idolized him and his […]

Morning Grind: White Flag, MLBPA/Mets, F-Mart, The Return Of Pedro

An article by posted on August 20, 2010 0 Comments

WAVE THE WHITE FLAG The Mets have clearly given up on the season. The Braves’ getting Derrek Lee just strengthens their position. It’s a rental for a 34-year-old, Type B free agent with back issues but it shows that our rivals want to win more than we do. Amazingly, they keep lying to us every post game. Say the words, Flushing. NO […]

Fulfill Your Mets Fantasy

An article by posted on August 20, 2010 0 Comments

It’s hard to be a Mets fan. The Wilpons are broke, players avoid Flushing because of the turmoil, Jerry can’t manage well in game, Omar has lost “it”, and the Mets at the plate have looked atrocious when it counts. All common and valid arguments. The Mets are not making the playoffs. No team with a sub .500 […]

Mets Need Leaders Desperately

An article by posted on August 18, 2010 0 Comments

Leadership. The word of the week. The month. The year? Clearly, it’s that important. But who’s in charge here? Changing players, GM’s, coaches, scouts, bat boys, and even the clubhouse janitor is futile if they lack the drive and determination to win. The ideal guys will scratch and claw because they have to win, they need to win, nothing less is acceptable or […]
