This has been the winter of discontent for Mets fans.  We have been extremely vocal and opinionated in criticizing our team and management.  We expect a lot, and rightfully so.  But now that roster moves have been completed, I’ve noticed many more Mets Merized fans excited about the upcoming season.  We are more confident that […]

Is Oliver Perez Capable Of Being Consistent?

An article by posted on February 24, 2010 0 Comments

I was ready to accept the fact that Omar Minaya made a really horrible decision when he re-signed Oliver Perez last year to a 3-year deal worth $36 million.  I was a Perez fan back in the 2006 playoffs, especially when he did a commendable job starting Game 7 of the NLCS.  Of course, since […]

2010 NY Mets: Finding Their Metsier

An article by posted on February 20, 2010 0 Comments

The 2010 New York Mets remind me of how I felt about the New York Rangers when the 1993-94 season began. The Rangers in 1991-92 acquired Mark Messier from the Oilers. They won the Presidents trophy for best record in the regular season, but then lost to the Penguins in the 2nd round, after Mario […]
