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.

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 […]
