Willie Randolph inherited the wrath of the fans tonight when he came out to take the ball from Aaron Heilman who had just allowed four Nationals to cross the plate and take the lead in the seventh inning. The boos were twice as loud and twice as thunderous than the ones that greeted Heilman as he walked back to the dugout. For some reason Willie keeps sending Heilman out in close games, only to take […]
The Mets have announced that RHP Nelson Figueroa and reliever Jorge Sosa have been designated for assignment. Claudio Vargas has been called up from New Orleans and reliever Matt Wise has been activated from the Disabled List. They have also placed outfielder Angel Pagan on the 15-day disabled list with an injured shoulder and called up Fernando Tatis who was tearing it up in New Orleans. Maybe it was a fear of public fan backlash… Maybe it […]
"It’s just a spring clean for the May queen. Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run There’s still time to change the road you’re on. And it makes me wonder." With apologies to Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, I have to disagree because I am a little alarmed. The Mets really do have two paths they can go down… and it does makes me wonder… Path One – […]
I love this game! There’s nothing else like it… Yesterday one of our regular readers pointed me to a fact that has gone widely unnoticed by many Mets fans. He told me that the only two Mets batting over .300 were Ryan Church and Brian Schneider. That’s right… the two players we got in the much maligned Lastings Milledge trade were the top two hitters on the Mets. Sorry for ever doubting you Omar, can […]
Willie Randolph has an appointment with destiny at the end of the month regarding his job security. The owners will meet with Omar Minaya and I assume Willie Randolph, to evaluate the team’s performance as well as Willie. <begin humming Taps> Like the majority of fans, I like Willie a lot. I think he’s accomplished many great things for the Mets in the short time that he has been here. Unfortunately though, he has rustled […]
Ahh the smell of green grass, beautiful palm trees, tropical drinks and sushi… that is what baseball is all about. At least it is in Los Angeles. (freaking wierdos!) Our New York Mets are in a virtual paradise, far away from the hostile crowds and boo birds they must deal with at home games. Ahh… this is the life. Rest and relaxation… Rest and relaxation my ass! Get on that damn field and start swinging that lumber and […]
Mets Merized – Joe D.It’s been an inconsistent and uneven start so far for the New York Mets. While many expected the team to explode out of the gate they instead continue to churn along and stay at or close to the top of the standings. We have seen a few stinkers in the early going, but the promise and hope of something special is clearly evident too. The Mets need a few things to break their way […]
Steve Popper of The Record had some interesting things to say in one of his recent articles regarding Willie Randolph and the Mets. The one that caught my attention was a quote where he cites fellow writer Bob Klapisch… Willie Randolph can’t consider a just-above-.500 record lucky. One person in the higher echelon of the franchise already told The Record’s Bob Klapisch last week that the honeymoon is over and the countdown is on to start […]
While many Mets fans are already calling for Willie Randolph’s head, don’t you think if anyone should be shown the door that it should be Rick Peterson and not Willie? It’s so easy to hang everything on Willie, but the fact of the matter is that he never got a fair shake. Among many other different issues, he was not even allowed to choose his own pitching coach. I think it is critical to a […]
