I know there are rumors flying around like crazy about pending free agent signings, and that the Mets are interested in the likes of Ben Sheets, Joel Pineiro and John Smoltz.  And while any of those guys are capable of stepping in and being, at the very least, our #4 starter, we should be prepared […]

It only took the Mets 14 days into the New Year to embarrass themselves and their fans.  Of course I’m talking about the whole debacle over Carlos Beltran’s knee surgery.  Once again the Mets completely mishandled the news of an injury to a key player on their team.  Some that should have been simple has […]

Okay Fans. It’s time to put to bed all the foolishness that has enveloped the Mets this past week. Make no mistake. It is ALL foolishness.

An article by posted on January 17, 2010 0 Comments

Like the rest of you, I found the news of Carlos Beltran’s surgery earlier this week disturbing. I found the Mets reaction to be disgusting. So being both disturb and disgusted, I took a step back and tried to find something positive we could focus on. First, pitchers and catcher aren’t due to report to […]

Likewise, the Mets are interested in bringing the slugging first baseman back to New York.  Delgado had a good start to the 2009 season with a .298/.393/.521 line. Of course, that was all in a total of 26 […]

Can I Get A Doctor Please?

The saga continues. Once again the question arises when it comes to the Mets medical staff and the organization leadership; does the left hand know what the right hand is doing? Obviously not. With so many players injured during the course of the 2009 season and the way the players were or were not treated […]

Even when the Titanic was doomed and sinking to the bottom of the North Atlantic the Captain, John Smith remained in the wheelhouse. Yesterday, as the Mets organization again was taking on water, their leader, Omar Minaya was in warm dry Arizona carrying Jeff Wilpon’s luggage. At this point, that is all Minaya is-an overpaid […]
