An article by posted on May 15, 2009 0 Comments

Man, that David Wright stinks! Even so, he did go three for three, and gave us key ribbies tonight, including driving in the game winner! Metsies beat the Giants 7-4. Doesn’t it feel great when we beat our parents–GIants and Dodgers! As Mets fans know, we don’t play these teams especailly well when we go […]

Binghamton 8, Trenton 7 Josh Thole BUSTED out of a slump in a HUGE way, going 5 for 5 and igniting the Mets decisive 3 run bottom of the 9th with a leadoff single. He would score on Josh Petersen’s game tying homer. Later in the 9th, Ruben Tejada hit a grounder to second, which […]

Memo to Jose Reyes: Grow Up Already!

An article by posted on May 14, 2009 0 Comments

Plain and simple, Jose’ Reyes has to grow up. He has to realize that he is one of two cornerstones for the Mets, and no longer a new-born colt prancing by his mother’s side. He needs to lead the Mets to the next level, not drag them into the abyss. Reyes will be 26 in […]

So after starting the season 9-12 in April and looking like a mistake-prone bunch of overpriced players who can’t hit or pitch in the clutch, our Mets have gone 9-2 in May and sit in first place today at 18-14….

An article by posted on May 13, 2009 0 Comments

Buffalo 1, Gwinnett 9 Not much to say about this one. The Bisons were bootstomped, right from the outset, with Brandon Knight giving up 5 runs in 5 innings, and then Carlos Muniz putting the game out of reach giving up 4 UER in the 6th. The Bisons were held to 5 hits, by Angel […]

Buffalo 4, Gwinnett 3 in 11 innings Tim McNab picked up a cheap win (it’s the theme of the night), giving up a pair in the top of the 11th, (1 earned, due to a Fernando Martinez error), only to see the Bisons score 3 in the bottom half of the inning for the win. […]

You can’t win ‘em all, it has been said, but last night’s defeat did sting a tad. For one, the Mets continue to squander sterling Johan Santana performances. He should hire a lawyer and sue the hitters for non-support. Why do the bats take a respite every time the fiery lefty storms the hill? The […]

Last week I wrote about Oliver Perez and the decision of Omar Minaya and the Mets to send him into the bullpen.  The next day the Mets decided to put Ollie on the disabled list (DL).  The reason provided by the Mets was that after an MRI it was determined that Ollie was suffering patella […]
