Last week I shared an email from Jeff Wilpon that said he would aggressively do whatever it takes to win a championship in 2010. Today, he expanded a little more on that. First let me share his opening remarks before he fielded a few questions. Fred, Saul and I would like to thank Mets fans for supporting the team through this painful, disappointing season. Like all fans, we are extremely unhappy with our results, both […]
The Mets remained mum regarding their coaching staff for 2010 on Sunday, but several sources are reporting that the Mets have made some moves. Joel Sherman is reporting that the Mets have fired bench coach Sandy Alomar Sr. and first base coach Luis Alicea. Pitching coach Dan Warthen will be resigned for the 2010 season, and Howard Johnson will be back as well. Razor Shines will be back, but not as the third base coach. On Saturday, manager […]
The Mets finally played some solid baseball and beat the Houston Astros 7-1 Friday night in the opener of their final series of the season. John Maine (7-6) made his final start of the season and delivered one of his best performances in two years. He pitched seven solid innings and allowed just one run on five hits, and he didn’t walk a batter while striking out seven. It was just what the Mets needed […]
So much for revamping the bullpen last off season… J.J. Putz – 2 thumbs down… Sean Green – 1 1/2 thumbs down (I sliced half my thumb off on a slicing machine when I worked at the deli. Not!) Frankie Rodriguez – You tell me? According to Newsday, Francisco Rodriguez became the first pitcher since Lee Smith in 1995 to allow two game-ending grand slams in the same season. That’s an epic fail anyway you […]
As we reported yesterday, the Mets have announced that no tickets will go up in price next season for Citi Field, and that they will reduce season-ticket prices by 10 to 20 percent. They will also be reducing the number of gold level ticket games which put a premium on desirable matchups. That’s a fitting gesture and a good first step toward healing the rift between the Mets and their fan base. However, lost in the […]
While appearing during his regular weekly spot with Mike Francesa on WFAN, Jerry Manuel sounded more like a general manager at times than he did a manager. When asked if he was intrigued by any of the starting pitchers and if any one starting pitcher caught his eye as far as the 2010 rotation, Manuel gave no ringing endorsements, and instead he offered quite the contrary. “I think the guys we have here now are good […]
As Ed Leyro blogged yesterday, Jose Reyes, who has been out since May, has torn his right hamstring while working out on Tuesday. He was already trying to recover from a torn hamstring tendon, for which surgery appeared increasingly likely. Now, the new injury only complicates the situation and raises questions about whether Jose Reyes will be ready to play again by opening day. Much of the speculation suggests that Reyes could potentially miss a significant portion of next season, and there […]
It feels great to be back again after being sidelined for almost a week with a nasty flu and no internet service as well. However, it doesn’t feel all that good analyzing another ugly loss for the Mets, this time at the hands of the surging Nationals who won their second straight against the Mets. The Mets have made losing an art form. I’ll make this recap short yet not so sweet… Mike Pelfrey started the game […]
While we debate the pros and cons of whether or not Luis Castillo should be traded in the off season, let me add this for your consideration. I decided to see where Luis Castillo’s season ranks among the best all around seasons by a Mets second baseman. To begin, Edgardo Alfonso not only delivered the best season ever for a Mets second baseman in 2000, but I would even argue that he also put up […]
