We have just one more week of Spring Training left and the good news out of Mets camp is that Jose Reyes may soon appear in a minor league game perhaps as soon as today. Also, Omar Minaya said this weekend that we should not rule Jose Reyes out for Opening Day. As soon as Reyes gets back into his regimen I have a feeling we’re going to revisit a hot topic that was introduced at […]
Dwight Gooden was arrested Tuesday morning in NJ and charged with driving under the influence of drugs following an auto accident. Gooden has previously stated he’d been sober the past 3 and a half years. The accident occurred at morning rush hour and according to reports Doc’s son was in the car with him at the time. It’s saddens all Mets and Baseball fans alike and we all wish Doc well and hopefully he’ll someday be […]
It’s so easy for us to say the Mets are a dysfunctional franchise. We’ve certainly bared witness to it the last few years. One particular area of criticism that’s often pointed out is the Mets farm system, or lack there-of. The farm system is cultivated mostly by signing amateur free agents and the draft. The draft is basically like the tax code, the better off your team plays the lower the draft pick you receive. […]
Please don’t hold my pessimism against me. Usually I’m a “glass is half-full” kind of guy, but the 2010 Mets are essentially relying on the same starting rotation they had last year as it’s been painfully told and shown to us all winter long. Johan Santana, Mike Pelfrey, John Maine, Oliver Perez and perhaps either Nelson Figueroa or Jon Niese, are going to round out the staff. It’s a rotation with more health issues than […]
In an exclusive to www.metsmerizedonline.com, Bobby Valentine, former manager of the New York Mets from 1996 to 2002, will be named the team’s next General Manager. I’m a tease what can I say. Perhaps I should have saved this for April 1st but I just couldn’t help myself. No, Bobby V is still at ESPN as an analyst, for now. But he is laying in wait, like a lion in the Serengeti tracking its prey […]
It seems the Cincinnati Reds are interested in acquiring Gary Matthews Jr according to Michael Baron at www.metsblog.com. With Carlos Beltran out until perhaps June, both Matthews and Angel Pagan will be battling for time in center field. Could this be the foot in the door the Mets need to make a deal for Bronson Arroyo? Perhaps not. In an update it seems that initial report was rebuked by John Fayman of the Cincinnati Enquirer. […]
With the onset of actual baseball games being played in Florida and Arizona this week, we can all enjoy a sigh of relief that spring training has finally arrived. To those of us in the northeast, there’s a major streak of envy at the comparably better weather both Arizona and Florida are having right now. Just a few days ago I was digging my car, yet again, out of 18 inches of snow. Where’s Al […]
So apparently Jerry Manuel is having a major bromance with Jenrry Mejia. Apparently he’s gone on record that he wouldn’t object to having Mejia make the club this Spring perhaps as a setup man. Yeah well not so much. They were more like fantasies as he admitted in a press conference. According to John Harper of the New York Daily News, our man Jerry is certainly channeling his inner Jennifer Aniston with this love affair. […]
