Bringing Mejia North Would Be A Huge Mistake

An article by posted on March 6, 2010 0 Comments

Jenrry Mejia has been very impressive so far this spring. The twenty year old phenom threw 2 and 1/3 perfect innings for the Mets on Friday in their 4-3 loss to the Marlins. Mejia showed dominating stuff while striking out four. Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that Jerry Manuel said the following […]

If Sean Green Is The Disease, Joe Beimel Is The Cure

Last year we had the MetsMerized Online Awards and one of the awards was the “Aaron Heilman Award.” This award would go to the pitcher we fans least wanted to see enter a game. There was a choice of Oliver Perez, J.J. Putz, and Sean Green. I clearly voted for Green. Every time Jerry Manuel […]

Is Their Any Hope In Sight For Mets PR Image?

As all of you know by now, Jose Reyes is on a plane to NY, in order to get tested for an overactive thyroid.  While this is certainly concerning news, even if he has this condition, chances are it will be treatable and he will be ok.  What worries and concerns me however, is how […]

I Like Ike – Mets Need To Bring Davis North…

An article by posted on March 5, 2010 0 Comments

This past offseason, the merciless bashing of the Mets organization seemed to reach it’s zenith. If you listened to talk radio and read all the blogs and papers you would have thought Omar Minaya was the boogieman. Was the criticism justified?

An article by posted on March 4, 2010 0 Comments

Many people would characterize Nelson Figueroa as a very good AAA player.  He can start or relieve, help the team win some games, and fill up seats in the minor league ballpark.  Nelson is probably looking at this kind of scenario again in 2010; one in which he starts the season in the minors, then […]

Go East, Young Men!

An article by posted on March 4, 2010 0 Comments

Much of what dominates Mets talk and is bandied about is whether the Mets will have a successful season in ’10. Can Big Pelf live up to his “potential”? (Don’t you just love that word?) Will Reyes be his old self or even better? Can the #3 through #5 pitchers keep us in games consistently? […]

I May Be Bitter and Jaded, But….

I’ve always been a Mets fan.  Well, since around 1970 or so…that’s as far back as I can remember.  So even though many of you have read my work on there the last six-eight months about how frustrated and annoyed I am with the way the team has played and the direction they have gone […]

What A Surprise, Mets Not Being Given Any Shot!

I am trying really hard to focus on Spring Training as we get a chance to see what will eventually develop into our 2010 squad, with a few pluses and minuses. The glutton for punishment that I am, I decided to watch the Mike and Mike simulcast on ESPN 2 this morning to hear them […]

Jerry Divulging Secrets Again… Or Is He?

An article by posted on March 3, 2010 0 Comments

In his recent “discussion” with Mike Francesca on WFAN, Jerry Manuel discussed his “predictions” for the upcoming season.  He is always very candid and forthcoming in his interviews, this was no different.   Among other things, Jerry admitted that Jon Niese and Daniel Murphy were the leaders to start the season at their respective starting […]
