An Optimistic Mets Fan Faces The Hard Truth

An article by posted on April 2, 2010 0 Comments

You may have noticed that I have not written much in recent weeks.  It’s simply because I’ve had little to say.  And as spring training winds down, I am left shocked and speechless, with my mouth wide open.  It’s sad but true.  I am extremely discouraged on the state of the 2010 Mets. All winter […]

Please Let This Be A Joke

The Mets have one of the highest payrolls in Major League Baseball today, despite the well know fact that they are not spending it where they need it most. Congratulations Mets, you went out and signed Jason Bay to a 4-year $66 million contract. You also went out and signed Kiko Calero, Henry Blanco and Rod Barajas […]

We are now a weekend away from the start of the 2010 Major League Baseball Season and New York Mets fans all over the planet are pulling out their remaining hair and saying to anyone who will listen “Oh no, here we go again”.. Well not so fast. True the season will start with a […]

You Are What Your 2-3-4 Starters Say You Are

An article by posted on March 31, 2010 0 Comments

Let me tell you one thing: All this blather that the games don’t count, and it’s still only spring training, the wind is the reason balls are flying into the stratosphere, etc, etc, is beyond worrisome. It’s downright frightful-and not a figment of Mets’ fans imagination. The Mets pitching stinks and the only one who […]

We’re just five days from the start of Opening Day.  We Mets fans have had to endure a lot of anguish these past few seasons, and so far nothing has given us significant indication that 2010 will be a successful season.  In fact, the injuries are continuing to mount, and the rotation still has a […]

With Murphy Out, Don’t Rush Ike

An article by posted on March 31, 2010 0 Comments

With the news that Murphy will miss some time due to injury, the one thing I can ask for is the organization to not rush the development of Ike Davis. The plan for Davis after his impressive spring was for him to be sent down and get some seasoning at the minor league level. With […]

Is Mike Pelfrey Tipping His Pitches?

An article by posted on March 31, 2010 0 Comments

Some pitchers just don’t have it.  You can tell from the first inning you ever see them throw.  Some pitchers look dominant from day one and besides some growing pains, you always feel like it will all click eventually.  Then there is Mike Pelfrey. We have all heard about how filthy Big Pelf’s stuff is.  […]

2010 National League Projections

An article by posted on March 31, 2010 0 Comments

Last year, my predictions were way off – at least as far as New York Met predictions.  Almost every Met spent part of the year on the disabled list, and we all know the disaster that followed.  This year, instead of making predictions, I will make “projections”.  I am no Nostradamus, so I will leave […]

An article by posted on March 30, 2010 0 Comments

The final countdown to the beginning of the MLB season has begun in earnest as we are now 6 days from opening night on ESPN where the Yankees face the Red Sox in what looks to me as it should be some of the closes races for all the divisions in recent years. CC Sabathia […]
