I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound, everybody look what’s going down? It’s Opening Day! Whether you are a Pirates, Astros, Yankees, or Mets fan, Opening Day has (or should have) a ton of emotions tied into it. It’s the start of a new year for many, time to move on from the never ending off-season banter, and focus on the actual game that is played on the field. Let the prospects […]
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Opening Day was today (although nobody really noticed), and it’s time to go on the record with some predictions. The MLB season to me, is the hardest to predict. You cannot really predict injuries, and anything can happen over the course of 6 months. However, it’s always fun to try right? Now that things are starting to settle, I feel I have a better idea of what […]
In case you missed it or had better things to do with your day than worry about one independent blogger getting his Mets media credentials revoked, let me hit you with the stunning news: Howard Megdal - who recently released Wilpon’s Folly - a book detailing the Mets poor financial situation, had his media credentials revoked by the Mets . Some background for you in terms of media credentials. A Major League Team cannot revoke privileges from members […]
Whenever there is a discussion about General Manager’s talents with regards to a rebuilding team, it often seems like the amateur draft is a measuring stick used, and it’s used improperly. Perhaps it is because the General Manager is seen as the face of the franchise in terms of decisions to be made, but in reality, the General Manager has little to do with the amateur draft. Case in point, if the GM was the […]
With Carlos Beltran leaving the Mets via trade and then signing with the Cardinals, there appears to be a lot of nostalgia going around about his career. In fact, it seems lately that Carlos Beltran and “Hall of Fame,” have been seen together in several discussions with Mets fans. Personally, I think the Hall of Fame is getting a bit too watered down. I love that a guy like Ron Santo got elected (though I […]
When things are going bad with a franchise, there are times when fans will look at every decision made and search for the negatives. Recently, it seemed as though some hysteria erupted at the fact that Mike Pelfrey signed a 1 year deal worth $5.7 million to avoid arbitration. Sometimes I find that people comment on things they either do not understand or refuse to understand. For me, if I don’t understand a process, I […]
With the current direction of the NY Mets, it seems there has been a lot of talk here about how much weight to put into Baseball America’s Prospect Rankings. First, let me explain what BA actually does with regards to these rankings to avoid any assumptions. From their own website, “Our prospect ratings are based on our own research and conversations with scouts, managers, instructors, front-office personnel and others in the game. Obviously all of […]
There are times when you see a very distinct line drawn in the sand between Mets fans. Often times, both sides misunderstand something about the other side, and things get out of control. People who agree with things Alderson are doing are not tired of the same old tricks that never seem to work in NY, and are not tired of bad contracts and overpaid players underperforming. They are Sandy apologists. People who are not […]
Last night I couldn’t go to bed after a long day because for the first time since Alderson became GM it seemed as though a plan of sorts was being unveiled. Before anybody assumes anything, I don’t think anything that happened last night was phenomenal, I just think it was a sign of moving on, and an actual plan for 2012. The biggest move was the trade of Angel Pagan for Andres Torres and Ramon […]
