Johan And Then What?

An article by posted on July 21, 2009 0 Comments

There has been so much talk this season about the injuries to three of the four offensive guys, that the state of the Mets starting pitching has gone virtually unnoticed. Until now. Looking at the Mets staring rotation, the only certifiable, front end pitcher is Johan Santana. Heck, for my money Johan is the best […]

An article by posted on July 21, 2009 0 Comments

It was revealed a few hours ago that the Mets were offered Cy Young winner Roy Halladay for a collection of Bobby Parnell, Fernando Martinez, Jon Niese, and Ruben Tejada and Omar Minaya rejected the trade.  Many seem to see this as a way of giving up, and it could appear that way.  But let’s […]

Mets On The Verge Of Double Digits In ‘Games Back’

An article by posted on July 20, 2009 0 Comments

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at the standings anymore. Four games out was cute. You want to give us a little something to be anxious about and keep us in the game – fine. Seven games out was worrisome. You want to test our loyalty and make us sweat – okay. But the fact […]

Is It Really About Re-Building?

An article by posted on July 19, 2009 0 Comments

I don’t know. To me, when I hear the word ‘rebuild’, I think of a team like the Washington Nationals or Pittsburgh Pirates, who have had little or no superstars in recent years, and whose only direction is up. Our New York Mets are far from the Nationals and Pirates, and far from the basement in their division. […]

An article by posted on July 18, 2009 0 Comments

Buffalo 1, Toledo 0 Jon Niese is a straight up PIMP. He fired another complete game shutout (OK, so this one was of the 7 inning variety), allowing just 2 hits and 2 walks, and lowering his season’s ERA underneath 4. Over his last 8 starts, Niese has gone 5-1, with a 0.96 era. Spanning […]

As the second half of the season commenced last night, with a loss to a familiar foe (curses Chipper), it’s time for Mets fans to slam the door on the resident traveling salesman, Omar Minaya. (When he rings the bell close the blinds) Because whatever he’s selling; vacuum cleaners, encyclopedias, and most importantly-HOPE, you should […]

7/17 Minor League Report! Davis, Reyes (again, not Jose)!

An article by posted on July 17, 2009 0 Comments

Binghamton 8, Erie 7 There needs to be a rule put into place in baseball whereby if you enter a game with a 3 run lead, and the game ends with a 1 run differential, you don’t get a save. Connor Robertson pitched horribly, giving up 2 runs on 2 hits and 2 walks in […]
