Petey’s a Philly… Yuck!

An article by posted on July 15, 2009 0 Comments

Indications are that Martinez is now a Phil for something like a million bucks with an incentives package worth $1.5 million, with an official announcement just hours away. Recall back in spring that Martinez supposedly wanted 5 million for the year, and this was a leading reason the Mets wouldn’t bite. Well, to many it made […]

Mets beat writer Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reported a little while ago in his blog that Bernie Madoff stole $700 million from the Wilpons.  That is a lot higher than the originally reported $300 million that the Wilpon’s allegedly lost.  Since the scandal broke late last year the Wilpons have not publicly […]

In July 2005 the New York Mets signed 16 year old Fernando Martinez.  F-Mart was given a signing bonus of $1.4 million and from that point on was labeled as the future of the New York Mets.  Omar Minaya said of F-Mart when he signed that: “What we saw in [Martinez] was a 16-year-old kid […]

Bored With the All Star Game

Tuesday night will be baseball’s annual All Star Game, from Bush Stadium in St. Louis Missouri. St. Louis is a great baseball town, and the Cardinals are one of Major League Baseball’s most historic and great baseball teams. Having said that, I have no interest at all in the All Star Game. This morning I […]

Will Pedro Spell Heartbreak For Mets Fans?

An article by posted on July 13, 2009 0 Comments

They held the wrap party for “Nightmare on Roosevelt Avenue,” yesterday afternoon, and a good time was had by all. The Mets scored a month’s worth of runs to commemorate the ending of a nightmarish first half of baseball. Broken bodies, coupled with botched pop-ups equaled shattered hopes. Hopefully, now Jason, Freddy Kruger, and all […]

Buffalo 2, Scranton 1 Coming off a 5 hit complete game shutout, Jon Niese wasn’t on top of his game tonight, giving up a run while scattering 8 hits (3 in the first, when he escaped a bases loaded one out jam without giving up a run). Over his last 7 starts, Niese is 4-1 […]

Please Give Me 10 Minutes in the Dugout!

JMAN’s post-game last night–not so good. Very Randolph-esque now. Lots of mumblin’, lots of hoping, lots of “it’s not so good; we have to try to turn it around” crap! Fans, I’m thinkin’ it’s high time for a little fire and brimstone. Whadda ya say? No one would seriously argue that a bit of the […]
