2010 National League All-Stars… Starting Center Field, Carlos Beltran?

An article by posted on May 22, 2010 0 Comments

As you all are well aware the All-Star ballots are a joke.  We all know it is a popularity contest and more times then not, a more popular player will be chosen over a more deserving player.  In addition to being a mockery of the League’s best talent, it also reflects 1900 technology resorting to […]

Mets Takahashi Pitching Well..Oswalt Asks Out

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

As the game moves along, I’m loving the pitching of a ‘professional’ pitcher like Hisanori Takahashi. In Fenway, Bay would have hit that ball out… I was on my laptop when AP sports alert came across that had a story from AP Sports reporter Kristie Rieken about Roy Oswalt and his agent officially requesting a trade from […]

Omar Minaya Should Have Taken His Own Advice

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

As Jim Nabors in “Gomer Pile” used to say:  “Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.”  He could have been pontificating cryptically on the present wafer thin condition of the Mets’ starting rotation.  A concern expressed by many since there was snow on the ground, and ignored by Omar Minaya, but coming to fruition as June bugs and Vultures are circling.

We Welcome The Yankees To The 2010 Subways Series At Citi Field

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday I read that perhaps there would be more Yankee Fans at Citi Field tonight than Mets fans.  I suppose that is possible, but I’ll leave it to the management to get those figures.    The Yankees haven’t sold out this year either- they’ve got all those empty seats behind home plate. Not sure whether it’s […]

Bizzaro-Wright And The VA Hit Factory

An article by posted on May 19, 2010 0 Comments

*insert David Wright inadequacy rant here* That is how I choose to begin my article. David Wright looks horrible at the plate, righties are killing him with sliders away and anyone with a fastball has a 33% chance to strike out Mr. Wright. He’s walking a fair amount, but it means nothing when he can’t […]

The Mets have made it official and have promoted R.A. Dickey while placing Jon Niese on the DL to make room for him. Tonight, Mets fans will get there first look at R.A. Dickey.  We hope his knuckleball will float like a butterfly and keep the Nationals batters off balance.  My expectations are not very […]
