You Can’t Handle The Truth

For many, our first impression was one of openness and honesty. When Sandy Alderson was introduced as general manager he spoke of wanting to win, yet said there would be difficult times. He gave hope things would be different in the new regime. There seemed to be an honesty about him absent from previous Mets […]

I’ve Made My Peace With This…

Let’s face it, Ruben Tejada isn’t as good as Jose Reyes. Then again, Reyes is far from a lot of the great shortstops who have played this game. Replacing Reyes isn’t like Mike Bordick replacing Cal Ripken. Reyes is a very good player, but there have always been obstacles that prevented him from being great. […]

Hope Is Not A Strategy

Sandy Alderson was brought in here as a fixer, to clean up the mess created by the Wilpon’s financial mess and years of mismanagement on the GM level. Since the Mets’ last World Series appearance in 2000, they have been about quick fixes. They never had a chance at Alex Rodriguez, which is just as […]

Good For Backman

An article by posted on November 7, 2011 0 Comments

I like that Wally Backman was finally offered the Mets’ Triple-A managerial job. It appeared Backman would take a bench coach job with Washington, which I said he should take because at the time the Mets didn’t offer him the Triple-A position. Well, the Mets did offer that job and it is good he stays […]

Reyes’ Departure Could Deter Future FA Signings For Mets.

An article by posted on November 7, 2011 0 Comments

It is easy to recognize what losing Jose Reyes might mean to the Mets on the field: they would be without an impact leadoff hitter, steal threat and solid defensive shortstop. I’m on record as saying the Mets won’t be able to retain him and shouldn’t get reeled in on a long-term deal. In signing Reyes […]
