Is it just me, or is there an uncanny resemblance between the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants and our beloved Metropolitans? Somewhere I can hear Alanis Morrissette asking "isn’t it ironic" how these two franchises actions over the past couple seasons mirror each other. Remember back before the Giants shocked the world in Super Bowl XXI, when they were in the tabloids each and every week, fans were booing their every move, and Tom Coughlin was on the verge […]
Visions of 2006 have cluttered my mind over the past three days. For much of the last eight months of baseball at Shea Stadium, the Metropolitans were a hollow vessel lacking a heart beat. They were there in body, looking quite lavish in their blue and orange uniforms, but it was quite evident that the hunger and drive to attain victory was lost somewhere along the way. Was it the benching of Jose Reyes […]
The troops are currently in the staging area, cleaning their weapons. The engineers are working on the engines and we’re starting to see them click on some of the available cylinders. D Day has been set for June 3rd. Pedro Martinez has thrown a rehab session in A Ball St. Lucie and has been declared ready to return. And not a moment too soon. He returns to what he all hope is Major League form, […]
One word describes last night – AMAZING!! What we witnessed last night, my friends, is reminiscent of 2006 – the Team, the Time, the Mets! They did everything right – from quality pitching, aggressive base running, timely hitting and passionate energy. Tears filled my eyes as the team greeted Beltran at home plate, as he scored the winning run, and then piled on top of Tatis, who most definitely was last night’s hero. The super […]
Please be advised that this blog was compiled yesterday, before the Mets beat the Marlins 5-3 at Shea. If in fact this team is beginning to turn it around, this will all seem a little less meaningful. They say, “No news is good news.” In the Mets case, no news is, well, no news. Same old story, day after day, week after week, and even month after month. Stretching back to June 1st of last […]
M is for the many games you’ve lost this year – Twenty three to be exact. It’s not even June yet. E is for every time you let us down. Every pop up with the bases loaded. Every runner stranded in scoring position. Every swing and a miss for strike three to end an inning. Every botched throw. Every missed play. Every homerun given up to the opposition. Every racy comment. Every dodged interview. Every […]
I think Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts said it perfectly on the FAN this morning… “Delgado’s got to go!” It’s true, maybe if the Mets grew some guts and cut their losses now, they would send a message to the rest of the team, insisting that there will be no more nonsense. This team is playing .500 baseball. And while David Wright may insist that this team has more talent than their record indicates, talent, […]
Alright already. Enough Willie-bashing. Enough clubhouse drama. Enough losing. Remember what you’re here for in the first place? To play baseball. To put on a show for the New York fans. To win a championship. I just don’t get it – over the weekend, I saw something in this team that I didn’t see for a long, long time. I saw fire, drive, determination and passion. I saw excitement and an eagerness to play – […]
The cool winter air brought the Evil Empire a glaring, once in a lifetime opportunity. A chance was at the forefront to acquire arguably the greatest starting pitcher to come along in the last decade was balked at by general manager Brian Cashman. Weeks later, the Mets decided to part with a large collection of promising youth to land Johan Santana. Friday evening when the Mets travel across town to do battle with the Yankees, […]
