I posted this prior to the Yankees series, and I wanted to re-iterate it. This road trip, the entire season hangs in the balance in my view. This is the type of trip a team like the Mets can either prove to Sandy Alderson they are worth keeping or the type of trip that can just kill a season and start the trade wheels in motion. To me, for those of you out there who […]
Part of being a Mets fan in 2011 seems to be that you are segmented off into two groups. One group, wants the future to be bright while hoping to remain competitive. The other group seems to want to focus on 2011, and only 2011. To me, the second group is what got us in trouble to begin with. In my view, there is a lot to be excited about right now but I’m cautiously […]
From the day he was hired, to the day he was fired I was often called an “Omar apologist.” I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase before right? Basically from what I deducted from that was “not everything Omar does is garbage,” therefore I am apologizing for him. Recently, I’ve seen a lot of negativity towards Sandy Alderson and his front office team. In all reality, from the day fans heard Alderson’s name was mentioned in […]
There are so many different opinions on this Jose Reyes saga, and frankly I’m ready for it all to be over. I think I’ve heard it all. I think part of the problem frankly is that the folks who are pro-long term Reyes think that people like myself dislike Reyes and that is why we don’t want to see him signed. I’ve heard so many ridiculous statements with regards to Reyes, that the argument is […]
There’s not a whole lot left to say when it comes to Jason Bay. It’s just so similar to Oliver Perez, that I just hope Bay makes the right decision here. Bay needs to get out of New York City, and start to figure this whole thing out. They can’t trade him because nobody will take him most likely, and anything the big club tries doesn’t seem to work. All that is left is to […]
Yesterday our own Craig Lerner posted a quote from WFAN’s Mike Francesa about Jose Reyes which was “Jose Reyes sat right there in that chair and looked me in the eye and told me he was looking for the same deal Carl Crawford signed. He sat right there in that chair. He said it on the air loud and clear, that he expects to get paid like Carl Crawford. This isn’t speculation, this isn’t from some […]
Somebody has to come to Fred Wilpon’s defense right? So I am fully aware that I will be in the minority here, and I don’t mean to be all anti-Met fan here but… I’m really happy he said what he said. Before you just read that sentence and attack, let me explain. For how long has it seemed as though the Mets owners were uneducated fans with an open checkbook? I mean consider all of […]
You know, a lot of people have tons of opinions about who the Mets should have acquired, or what they should have traded to get talent. If you’ve read my stuff, you know I’m in the camp of people who recognize Alderson has a 4 year contract, so I’m willing to give him 3-4 years before coming to a conclusion on all of his moves. When you consider the financial state of this franchise, and the […]
There are two sides to the Jose Reyes fan argument. There are people like me that say trade him, and get something for him that has more of a guarantee than a compensation draft pick or two. And then there are the people who want to pay Reyes whatever it takes to sign him and keep him in a Mets uniform, or they think Reyes would take some sort of hometown discount to stay. If […]
