I’m not going to draw you into another one of my diatribes on how the Mets needed to go after Adam Dunn last off season. I wasted too many words on my pursuit of Adam Dunn in the off season, and countless more words expressing my disappointment when he ultimately signed with the Nationals. When Jon Heyman and Ken Rosenthal confirmed that Adam Dunn could change teams again, I held out hope that the Mets […]
The Mets came close to pulling a rabbit out of their hat tonight after falling behind 6-0 to the Diamondbacks after two innings. They came up a run short, but came so close to tying and winning the game if not for another baserunning blunder by Angel Pagan. Nelson Figueroa was called up to make the start after compiling a string of solid starts for Buffalo. I was one of those who was hoping to see […]
You may have heard over the weekend that Wally Backman was fired from his job as manager of the Joliet Jack Hammers of the Northern League. I love Wally, he was a great Met, but I’m not surprised he was let go. What is surprising though, is that some Mets fans are considering and hoping that the Mets hire Backman to replace Tony Bernazard as Vice President in charge of Player Development or Jerry Manuel […]
Will the Mets pickup the options on Billy Wagner of J.J. Putz? I feel the Mets should not pick up either of their options unless within the final two months of the season they are able to prove that they have significant value with no signs of holding back because of their injuries. The barometer should be their pre-surgery velocity coupled with their command. If they rise to the occasion on both those levels, than […]
Keith Hernandez says it all the time. Sometimes you just have to tip your hat to the other team, and in this case the other team is the Philadelphia Phillies. They made a brilliant off season move by replacing longtime Phillie and Mets nemesis Pat Burrell, with free agent outfielder Raul Ibanez who has been nothing short of spectacular. Ibanez has put together an MVP type season and leads the team in almost every offensive category […]
As the Mets lost the opener to Arizona 3-2, I couldn’t help but wonder what lies ahead for these Mets. We’re back to the same team that struggles to score runs, and the team that won five straight not so long ago, may have just been a blip on the radar. Omar Minaya says there was no help available that was better than the guys that are coming back. He said the one positive thing that […]
The five game winning streak that rejuvenated a fan base is now just a forgotten memory as the Mets lose their second straight tonight at Citi Field. The Diamondbacks took the first game of the series 3-2 after scoring the winning run on a wild pitch by Sean Green. Livan Hernandez started the game and delivered his third straight solid performance. Hernandez held the D-Backs to just two runs on four hits in six innings […]
Today is one of the biggest days of the regular baseball season for baseball junkies like me; the trade deadline. I always enjoyed this time of the season because it had that hot stove feel to it. But now, with the advent of social networking sites like Twitter, I have a non-stop stream of information and unfortunately misinformation too depending on your take of it. I used to enjoy sifting through all these little nuggets of […]
Jon Heyman of SI.com just said on SNY that he believes that the Mets have turned down an offer from the Indians for All Star catcher Victor Martinez. The 30 year old Martinez, has been rumored to be on the trading block all month and if this is true I would be very interested in knowing why and who the other players in the deal were. I’m actually quite surprised that Omar would turn down the opportunity […]
