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 […]
Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away. Now it seems as though they’re here to stay. Oh I believe in yesterday. Suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be. There’s a shadow hanging over me. Oh yesterday, came suddenly. – The Beatles Omar Minaya has come full circle. His five year tenure is slowly coming to an end, and his five year plan is as distant now as it was in 2004 when […]
Adam Rubin of the Daily News was kind enough to answer a few questions for Mets Merized Online. It’s been a hectic week as far as Mets news goes, and I wanted to get his thoughts on the Halladay situation, Carlos Beltran’s bone bruise, the shift in our top prospects, and other Mets concerns. 1. According to a report by Jon Heyman, Omar Minaya rejected a trade that would have landed Roy Halladay in exchange for prospects; […]
ESPN is reporting that the Oakland A’s and St. Louis Cardinals have completed a trade that sends outfielder Matt Holliday to St. Louis in exchange for third baseman Brett Wallace, outfielder Shane Peterson and right-handed pitcher Clayton Mortensen. The A’s are also including $1.5 million cash in the deal. Wallace is considered an elite propspect and ranked #20 overall by Baseball America in their recent July rankings. (Or about 100 spots ahead of F-Mart!) Holliday, 29, […]
Starting pitcher, Brad Holt continues to shoot up the top prospects lists. The 2008 supplemental first round draft pick, has impressed scouts with his plus fastball and his other pitches continue to improve. I asked Adam Rubin of the Daily News about him on Tuesday, and he now has him ranked among the top three prospects in the Mets organization. Last week, Baseball America released their mid season prospect rankings and Brad Holt was the […]
Brian Moritz of Press-Connects wrote a new article that sheds some more light on the alleged incident involving Tony Bernazard and what transpired in the clubhouse of the B-Mets. The Double-A squad spent the day trying to downplay a story in the New York Daily News that said Tony Bernazard, the Mets’ vice president for player development, ripped his shirt off and challenged the players to a fight during a post-game tirade in the team’s NYSEG […]
I’ve supported Omar Minaya ever since he first took the reins of the New York Mets after the 2004 season. He took an organization that was in complete disarray and put the Mets back on the map. He said that the Mets would be rebuilt and taken seriously, and he gave us his five year plan that would make the Mets significant again, competitive, a contender and so much more. Wow, what a vision… I […]
