Here Come The Braves: Will The Mets Be Ready This Time?

An article by posted on August 6, 2007

After allowing the dust to settle and the smoke to clear on the hoopla that was Tom Glavine’s 300th career victory, the Mets now have a far more significant matter at hand. With the milestone put in the rear view mirror, the focus is squarely set on the Atlanta Braves. They head to Flushing this […]

John Maine – A Met Whose Time Has Come

An article by posted on July 29, 2007

Emerging from the depths of mediocrity midway through the Mets historical 2006 run to the NLCS was 26 year old John Maine. He arrived to the “big show” early in May after now former Met hurler Brian Bannister went down with a severe hamstring injury. At that moment, not one single Met fan could tell […]

Mets Making Me Crazy, But Boy Do I Love them!

An article by posted on July 23, 2007

Just thought I would share with you some of the things that really ticked me off while watching/listening to yesterday’s game…  First off, the dumb idea that Ruben Gotay’s throwing error in Saturday’s game may have been caused by the fact that he now knows he is going to be the everyday second baseman, at least for a […]

Mets Fans: This is NO Joking Matter!!

An article by posted on July 17, 2007

I am diligently trying to remain positive. I am trying to see the glass half full, rather than half empty, but the truth is, sometimes I don’t even see the glass! How many scoring opportunities are the Mets going to waste? How many outs can they possibly make with runners in scoring position? How many […]

Like ‘Em or Not, These are the Mets!

An article by posted on July 16, 2007

I thought it would be fun this week to sort of “laundry list” the things that I like and dislike about our Mets. I hope you will find some of these items to be very interesting… LIKES: – Paul LoDuca batting second. Come on, Willie, you know he belongs there, why would you put him […]

Will Mets be Whole after the Half?

An article by posted on July 9, 2007

The Mets ended the traditional first half of the season at 48 and 39, slightly worse than they did last year at this time, when they had a record of 53 and 36. It’s only a difference of five more wins and three more losses. But if you think about, considering all the injuries, the […]

Mets Well Represented in 2007 All Star Game, but is Selection System Fair?

An article by posted on July 3, 2007

The New York Mets will have four players represent them in this year’s All Star Game. David Wright, Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and Billy Wagner will all do us proud next Tuesday night in San Francisco. There has been much talk that John Maine deserved a spot on the NL roster as well, and I […]

Mets Did Rain Dance, Victory Dance Last Week

An article by posted on July 2, 2007

Last Wednesday’s rain-shortened game against the Cardinals got my wheels spinning once again. And actually, my number one question came a day later: Why in creation did the Mets and Cards NOT play Thursday night’s game?  What did Thursday have to do with Wednesday?  I live literally 20 minutes from Shea (without traffic) and it was dry and clear […]

Mets Fans: Thou Shall Not Walk

An article by posted on June 26, 2007

Can a team intentionally walk an opposing hitter too many times in one game? Morally, I don’t think it is appropriate. But there is no rule in Major League Baseball that limits the number of free passes you can issue a hitter. When the Yankees intentionally walked David Wright THREE times during a Subway Series […]

Mets and NL Managing Just Fine…

An article by posted on June 25, 2007

Picture this…the eighth place hitter just doubled in the bottom of the ninth with one out and the game tied at two. Next batter? Not the pitcher. Not a pinch hitter. Not the man who took over the ninth spot in the order when he went in as part of a double switch. Simply, the […]
