Updated 10/13 11:00 AM by Joe D. I just wanted to add some interesting info to Tom’s fine post. Alderson received a glowing endorsement from his protégé, Oakland GM Billy Beane, who worked for Alderson for more than half of Alderson’s tenure as GM of the Athletics. Beane spoke to the NY Post via telephone on […]

Before I begin this week’s post I apologize for my post last week on Omar Minaya and Roy Halladay.  When writing my post last week I had no intention to hurt anyone or insult anyone’s nationality. I promise in the future to be more careful with my posts. This is not a post bashing Johan Santana. […]

It’s not just in Flushing. Everywhere in the league where there is no playoff teams in the hunt, these teams are starting to get into position for major moves, trades, and acquisitions. Here comes the money! GM Search A Formality? Joel Sherman thinks that Alderson is the best qualified to fix the “mess” that is […]

Morning Grind: Boras, What A Mets, GM Scavenger Hunt

An article by posted on October 8, 2010 0 Comments

Met Nation, We have come to a place I never thought would ever be. Scott Boras, the Super Agent himself, and I might actually agree on something. He believes that the Mets can make a quick turnaround, provided they use their considerable funds. There are a few teams around the league that do this. Should […]

They’re gone!  Yes, Omar Minaya is thankfully no longer the General Manager of the New York Mets.  Even better news is that Jerry “The Gangsta” Manuel has finally been fired and will no longer be managing the Mets and laughing after a loss.

This afternoon I watched an interview on SNY that was a gem. Kevin Burkhardt sat down and quietly spoke with Fred Wilpon about all that has been happening the past few weeks. About all the current Mets news – hirings, firings, etc. and the changes that will now be able to take place as the […]

Another Salute To Dickey

Heading into this season R.A. had a 14-22 record and 6.30 ERA in 48 career starts.  The nicest thing that could be said of his career numbers were centered about the promise he showed while working out of the Mariner’s bullpen in 2008, when he posted a 2.oo ERA in 36 relief innings. This year, […]
