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 […]
Where is Omar Minaya? After triggering a stunning turn of events at a press conference that was intended to announce the firing of Tony Bernazard, Minaya has been invisible from the public eye. Omar Minaya made the firing of Bernazard a mere footnote after levying a sharp and unexpected attack on Adam Rubin’s integrity. He came off like a vindictive GM who wanted to take down the person he felt was responsible for the downfall of his longtime friend, Tony […]
Unless you’ve had your heads in the sand, you all know that Luis Castillo is on fire. He might be more responsible for this little winning streak than any one player on the team. Since dropping that popup in Yankee Stadium, Castillo has transformed himself back into the player that made him a three time All Star and gold glover. Jerry Manuel was glowing when he spoke about Castillo’s resurgence. “The thing about Luis, we […]
Mets COO Jeff Wilpon met with reporters shortly before the start of last night’s game and offered his apologies for what transpired during Omar Minaya’s press conference on Monday. “After some reflection, I thought it was important to come out and talk to everybody. We’re very sorry about what happened. It was the wrong forum. The wrong time. The wrong situation for Omar to express himself in that way. It hurt the organization. Omar admitted he […]
In responding to a post I read earlier today, I left a comment that I thought was a good stand-alone for a blog post. If you listened to WFAN this morning, they spent a great deal of time ripping into Adam Rubin if in fact he inquired about a job with the Mets. I also read a couple of articles this morning advocating that Adam Rubin’s actions were inappropriate and a definite conflict of interest. […]
When the Mets traded Ryan Church to the Atlanta Braves for Jeff Francoeur, there was an outcry among Mets fans such as I’ve never heard before over a trade that I thought was a great one for the Mets. All of a sudden Ryan Church was looked upon as this golden boy, when in fact he hadn’t put together a string of six solid games in a row since April of 2008. At the time […]
If the Mets were distracted by all of today’s craziness off the field, they sure didn’t show it on the field as they took the opener of a crucial four-game series against the Colorado Rockies, 7-3 tonight at Citi Field. The win puts them a full game closer to a Wild Card spot as they improve to just 6 1/2 games back. Oliver Perez started the game and quickly put the Mets into a 2-0 […]
This afternoon, the suddenly revitalized Mets launched a 13 hit attack against the Astros to beat them 8-3, and take the series two games to one. It was the second straight win for the Mets who have been fueled by the hot hitting of Angel Pagan and Luis Castillo, and clutch hitting of Jeff Francoeur. Even David Wright seems to be getting into the act. Livan Hernandez started the game and it looked like he wouldn’t survive the first […]
