As we all saw with the 2012 Gold Glove award, the best player does not always win. Maybe the sportswriters of America wanted to give Padres fans to be excited about. Maybe the rapid downward spiral the Mets took in July hurt David Wright’s chances. And as much as I like Chase Headley, the best defensive third baseman did not win the award. The only other meaningful award that a Mets player could possibly win [...]
Jessica gets her wish! She submitted this post before today’s game but it didn’t go up on time. But it all worked out. – Joe D. It seems like a familiar enough scenario: the Mets play the Marlins for the final series of the year. In a must-win series, the Mets lose two out of three. Why does it seem familiar? Because it’s happened far too much in recent memory for Mets fans to even [...]
The Mets begin their final series of the season last night against Miami. The good news is that it is mathematically impossible for the Mets to finish in the cellar. The bad news is that they are going to finish the season down in the wins column. I get asked why I still care about the Mets. They’re going anywhere, Jessica. Why still listen to them, unless you want to get the most out of [...]
As of September 20, the Mets sit in 4th place by one game and six perentage points. Our elimination number is two and Barney Stinson is closer to smoking his next cigarette. The only thing as equally Amazin’ as our 4-23 home record post-All Star break, including 15 straight home games where we scored three runs or less, is the fact that we still sit in fourth place. Are the Miami Marlins that bad of [...]
After Monday’s 3-1 loss to the Phillies, I got on the phone with my dad and we naturally discussed the game. We discussed everything from who was responsible for the only run (Daniel Murphy) to Dickey’s performance. Despite letting off the two solo home runs, both my dad and I felt that Dickey pitched well enough on Monday and Chris Young pitched well enough on Sunday to keep us in the game. However, there is [...]
Yeah, it’s September. The elimination number on the Mets is six. On October 3, Mets baseball will become dormant for the winter as the Wilpon family and Sandy Alderson try to re-sign David Wright and R.A. Dickey to long-term contracts. Or at least that’s what I hope they’ll do. No, the Mets won’t be a .500 team this year, but that plan went moot after the Mets had horrendous homestand after horrendous homestand. They believe [...]
Jose Reyes has been a staple on this Mets team for seven years, from the time he was 19 years old. After 2009 limited him to just 36 games, we are expecting big things from Reyes this year. We were expecting more run production, more triples, more swiftness….and maybe a revival of The Jose Reyes Spanish Academy. But, now that spring games have started, Reyes appears to be MIA. Reyes was following up a physical [...]
In the last 24 hours, Mets fans watched in agony as John Lackey signed with the Red Sox and Roy Halladay got traded to the Phillies. And I hate to add anymore pain to this, but the Cardinals have allegedly offered Matt Holliday one the highest contracts in their team history, according to ESPN. Sure, we made an offer to Jason Bay, but it is for four years and Bay wants a guaranteed five years. [...]
As we all know by now, Wallace Matthews wrote yet another column bashing the Mets. And we, as fans, have every right to be angry. We have every right to boycott Matthews and use our Newsday for our fireplaces. But did we even take the time to consider that maybe, just maybe, Wallace Matthews might be right for a change? The Mets made a blip on the playoff radar in 2006, but lost thanks to [...]
