Is There Something Wrong With Johan?

An article by posted on April 14, 2010 0 Comments

As of right now Johan Santana will be pitching once again on 6 days rest which gives him an extra day off.  Normally this would be a good thing but Johan is not a typical pitcher.  For some reason Johan has trouble pitching on extra rest.  It’s somewhat dumbfounding but that is the case with […]

Last seasons’ wounds haven’t healed.  Yet, sitting around discussing the current issues with this current incarnation of the NY Mets with some friends has revealed not panic, but apathy… Willie Harris catch has robbed us of a .500 start, but, more importantly, Johan Santana’s lack of velocity this past Sunday and really for quite some […]

It’s hard to believe the euphoria of Opening Day took place but a week ago.  Since the Mets won Game One they have lost 4 out of 5, and two consecutive home series against Florida and Washington.  Not the Sterling start this team wanted-or more importantly, needed. Then came yesterday’s revelation by Jerry Manuel that the team was […]

An article by posted on April 12, 2010 0 Comments

No, it’s not the trading deadline, although at times I wish it were. I have already gone on record as an advocate for optimism when it comes to our orange and blue clad warriors. Reason being, it was near impossible to judge what we had while just watching games that don’t count as well as […]

An article by posted on April 10, 2010 0 Comments

For years my brother and I had been seven pack ticket holders over at Shea Stadium. I was upset last year when the Mets masterminds decided to do away with seven packs, and only offer a fifteen game package. For me fifteen games just wasn’t doable, not only from a financial point, but for family […]
