Big Pelf, Big Win?

An article by posted on May 18, 2010 0 Comments

For the first time this month, a Mets starting pitcher finally earned a victory.  (Only took them 17 days.)  Last night’s win was a big one for the Mets.  (Seems like we’re always saying that.)  Mike Pelfrey went a solid 7 and 2/3 innings, giving up only two runs.  And though the Mets offense didn’t […]

Where’s The Thump In Bay’s Bat?

An article by posted on May 18, 2010 0 Comments

Jason Bay is a guess hitter because he has been streaky his entire career.  So far, his short tenure with the Mets has been one wrong answer after another.   Take the seventh inning of Sunday’s fifth straight Mets loss – Please.  With the annoying Marlins about to break out a four-pack of brooms, the Mets […]

Mets Need To Fire Coaches Too!

An article by posted on May 18, 2010 0 Comments

Baseball is a long season and when a team under-performs the way the Mets are you always hear the usual fire the manger and/or general manager.  I support that 100%.  Jerry and Omar absolutely need to go.  Omar has done a horrible job of building the franchise and Jerry Manuel is just not a manager […]

The Ship Hasn’t Sunk, But It Is Leaking

I know it has been some time since my last contribution, so hopefully this one is good enough to make up for lost time… After another interesting, if not depressing week of Mets’ baseball, it is clear as day that this team needs to make some changes. While everyone is calling for Jerry Manuel’s head, […]

Where Is Nelson Figueroa When You Need Him

An article by posted on May 17, 2010 0 Comments

We could use Nelson Figueroa.  After Johan Santana and Mike Pelfrey, he would be our next best starting pitcher. I was never sold on John Maine after seeing him in spring training.  He’s recently had a few positive starts, though those were against weak hitting NL teams and at the friendly confines of Citifield when […]

One Mets Fans’ View…From the Cheapest Seat…

An article by posted on May 17, 2010 0 Comments

It’s finally happened Met Nation. I finally snapped and used my “TV Brick” to throw at my 37 inch flat panel. The sponge brick, a gift from my ex-wife about 16-18 years ago, heretofore has only been used when watching NFL football. The last time I recall I threw it in anger was a playoff […]
