The pressure is kind of off

An article by posted on April 7, 2010 0 Comments

Sure, we’re all thrilled that the Mets continued their Opening Day dominance on Monday with a win over the Marlins to start the 2010 season.  It was a very complete performance with Johan Santana, Fernando Nieve and K-Rod holding the Marlins to one run; and our hitters, starting with David Wright belting a first-inning two-run […]

Bay Rings The Bell…

Put it in the books. It was a thing of beauty in game 1, from the weather to the pitching to the timely hitting. Who can complain about the best opening day franchise in baseball? No Met fan in Met Nation could have hoped for a better opener. (Unless we are talking about a no […]

Just Not The Same Buzz For Opening Day

An article by posted on April 6, 2010 0 Comments

I attended my 7th opening day yesterday.  It was the perfect day for baseball, and the Mets looked great.  David Wright floated back into the heavens and made everyone breathe a deep cleansing breath of relief, and Johan Santana looked almost like the vintage ace of old.  So then why was I not completely ecstatic?

Optimists Have Their Day In The Sun

An article by posted on April 6, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday, opening day, the optimists ruled. The naysayers out there already have their rebuttals. “You had Santana pitching, you should have won. Now lets see what you’ve got”. Perhaps they are right. Certainly 2009, nor this most recent spring training has given even the most loyal Mets fans some ill conceived notions that this team […]

It’s Not As Bad As Some Would Have You Believe

An article by posted on April 5, 2010 0 Comments

Loyal, stupid and in denial are the three words that most accurately describes me when talking about the 2010 Mets. Firstly, I’ve been a Met fan for over 35 years. In that time I’ve been treated to one World Championship. If that’s not loyalty, I don’t know what is. Even as we watched the stars […]

A Moratorium On Booing – But For How Long?

An article by posted on April 5, 2010 0 Comments

When will the booing start?  I don’t think it should.  I am proposing a moratorium on booing the Mets at Citifield.  The question is how long can it last?  There will be plenty of opportunities for booing, but hopefully many more for cheering.  Regardless Mets fans, give it a break.  No booing on Opening Day! Scenario #1 […]

Glass Half Empty

An article by posted on April 5, 2010 0 Comments

I have been very disappointed in my fellow Mets fans this spring.  I read and hear a vast amount of criticism and negativity about this year – but not much hope or excitement.  Isn’t this attitude why we hate Yankees fans so much.  I understand being critical of the team – even I don’t expect […]

Must We Really “Abandon All Hope”? Easter greetings to Metsdom! It is Season’s Eve this glorious Easter Sunday, and none of us isn’t excited for our Mets despite what our baseball sense may be telling us. Here’s to 2010 being as unexpectedly wonderful as 2009 was crushingly unexpected! Well, imagine my good feelings being squelched […]
