Still Believin’

An article by posted on July 7, 2009 0 Comments

The story as I remember it, goes something like this: the 1973 Mets were struggling, they weren’t playing up to their potential, when general manager M. Donald Grant called a team meeting. At the end of the meeting Grant told the Mets “I believe in you guys”, at which point pitcher Tug McGraw yelled out “YA GOTTA […]

Met Fans: Omar Has Failed Us

An article by posted on July 7, 2009 0 Comments

I know it sounds like bad dialogue out of a comic book or a Michael Bay movie but it is unfortunately true.  Omar over the last couple of years seemed to be the “Teflon GM.”  The last 2 seasons we have witnessed the Mets collapse and miss going into the playoffs by one game.  Omar […]

Swept Away Again — Disgusting

An article by posted on July 6, 2009 0 Comments

Hmmm… what next genius move will emanate from Mets’ ownership? Perhaps the promotion of Josh Thole or Wilmer Flores. My God, what farther depths will we sink to this season? If being swept out of Citi by the Yanks weren’t bad enough, today we fans were treated to a greater humiliation (owing to playoff chances […]

Thoughts After A Lost Weekend

An article by posted on July 6, 2009 0 Comments

Watching the Mets this past weekend ranked slightly above the on goings with the Kardashian Clan, but below C-Span. Anytime your hometown team averages one run per game, in the bandbox known as Citizen’s Bank Ballpark, it is a frustrating and sleepy endeavor. Regardless of who appears in the daily lineup. Right now the Mets […]

The Mets Ain’t Half Bad, But They Ain’t Half Good Either

An article by posted on July 6, 2009 0 Comments

Even though the All Star Break doesn’t reach us for another week, the official halfway point of the season (81 games) came yesterday after the Mets 2-0 loss to the Phillies. The New York Mets find themselves four games behind the division leading (and Mets-fan hated) Philadelphia Phillies. The “official” first half ended with a […]

Fantasy Focus: Mets Positional Analysis – Part I: The Good!

An article by posted on July 5, 2009 0 Comments

It’s been a brutal 4th of July weekend getting swept by the hated Phillies.  The Mets now sit below .500 for the season.  Clearly the team needs some help – either from the return of our injured stars or via trade – although it appears that the front office is still prudently waiting for the […]
