It is so freaking cool to finally go into Mets Spring Training camp and not have to hear about the damned Atlanta Braves and their damned streak of consecutive titles. You have no idea how much I hate that team. I will never forget the year that they clinched just before going into the last series of the season against the Mets. Bobby Cox, who I despise, decided that rather than resting his regulars for a […]
The Chan Ho Park contract just keeps getting better and better. Apparently, the Mets will only have to pay Park $150,000 if he does not make the team out of Spring Training. If he does make the team, the Mets get him for a very reasonable $600,000. Here’s the thing though, as Met fans we should be rooting for him not to make the team, because if he does make the team it means that […]
NY Sports Guy breaks it down. Please forgive me. I’d like to write this in advance to all 8 of you that will read my blogs this season. 7 of those 8 will be my friends who will be reading just because I will make them. As for the rest of you, well, I’ll say it again. Please forgive me. I may write a few things this year that you may disagree with. I may […]
David Wright appeared to wear down toward the end of last season, and after another busy winter, it will be crucial for the All-Star third baseman to keep the demands of his fame in check. With his popularity exploding beyond New York, the Mets’ cover boy must be able to handle the intensifying spotlight. So far I think he has handled his celebrity status quite well. He says and does all the right things, and […]
ESPN, they had a great article by Phil Rogers who ranked all the outfields in baseball, and I was surprised to see the Mets ranked at number 4. Only the Angels, Tigers, and Braves were ranked higher. I thought it was ironic because besides all the comments and questions I get from fans concerned about the starting pitching, worries about the outfield ranked second. In my 2007 Mets Preview last month, I gave the Mets outfield a […]
Only 8 more days until Mets pitchers and catchers report, and as a special treat to all my readers, subscribers and myspace friends, I give you the Ultimate Mets Merized Challenge. Here is a Mets quiz that is sure to test your knowledge of the New York Mets. I hope you enjoy it and look forward to your comments. HOW METS MERIZED ARE YOU! Nothing much happening this week in Mets land. The Mets did do […]
Well, it looks like the battle to replace Darren Oliver as the long reliever just got a little narrower. Dave Williams, who was viewed as a potential long reliever and emergency starter, had an operation to repair a herniated disk in his neck and could be out until June. Williams started feeling pain when he began his offseason throwing program in January. This leaves the Mets with offseason acquisitions Aaron Sele and Jorge Sosa as leading candidates for the job. […]
Tom Glavine, John Maine and Julio Franco participated in a charity event for disabled children yesterday. While speaking to reporters, Tom Glavine had some positive things to say about the state of the Mets starting rotation going into Spring Training. "Those guys give you reason to be excited about what our rotation is going to be," Glavine said, mentioning Perez, Pelfrey, Humber and Maine by name. "There’s going to be competition . . . but I […]
Hi everyone, I’m finally home again after some badly needed "R&R" and back behind a computer. I hope all of you had a great New Years Day or week, as it was in my case. What is up with Omar lately? I am really surprised that he didn’t have a contingency plan for not signing Barry Zito. Does he really mean it when he says he’s happy going into the 2007 season with the current rotation? […]
