Mets Managerial Search Isn’t A Fair Race.

An article by posted on November 17, 2010 0 Comments

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported today that the managerial “search” is more of a formality: I guess Hale, in particular, has a chance to throw a Hail Mary and get the job. But this is as close to a rigged event as possible with Collins as the favorite and Melvin as a […]

Dan Uggla Trade Gives One Pause On Trading Reyes Or Beltran

An article by posted on November 17, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday, I was quite surprised by the trade that sent Dan Uggla to the Braves for utility infielder Omar Infante and reliever Mike Dunn. The fact that he was traded isn’t what surprised me. We all knew the writing was on the wall once Uggla turned down a four-year deal worth $48 million dollars from the […]

An article by posted on November 16, 2010 0 Comments

Today Ken Rosenthal reported that the Brewers would listen to offers regarding several players, one of those players is Rickie Weeks.  Weeks has one year left on his contract.  In 2010 Rickie Weeks will be making $2.75 million dollars.  The Mets we know need someone at second base as it’s highly likely that Castillo won’t […]

I Love Backman, But…

I won’t sugar coat things for you (as if you’ve ever worried about the Coop doing that)…I LOVE Wally Backman.  LOVE HIM.   When My Summer Family was still in operation, I wrote a piece called “Backman is the Answer.  What was the Question?“  This detailed why I was upset that the Mets didn’t at least […]

Alderson Should Bring Hudson To The Mets

As Sandy Alderson continues to hire his buddies and show no urgency in hiring a manager, he needs to consider bringing Orlando Hudson to the New York Mets. Hopefully Alderson will finally cut loose the dead weight  that is Luis Castillo.  The Mets should have signed Hudson in 2009, but instead they let him go to the […]

Alderson’s Big Test Will Be In Who He Hires As Manager

An article by posted on November 2, 2010 0 Comments

While everyone celebrates that Sandy Alderson is the new GM and that he said all the right things the Mets still need a manager.  Unfortunately for us it looks like the Mets are going to be cheap with who they hire.  Also Alderson doesn’t like spending money so that means Bobby Valentine won’t be the […]

The New Philosophy

Like many of you, I have been paying attention to the World Series.  I knew if just one of either the Phillies or the Yankees were in it, I’d have a problem because I’d be too emotionally invested.  If it was both, I wouldn’t be able to watch it at all.  However, two teams that […]

Mets Need To Make A Plan And Stick With It

As we all know, the final candidates for the next Mets general manager are Josh Byrnes and Sandy Alderson.  Some have said there could be an announcement by the end of this week as to which of them will get the nod. Personally I hope the next GM is Alderson. I don’t like some of what I’ve read about […]

THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT!
