I think everybody here realizes that the Mets primary objective at the Winter Meetings is, and should be to acquire bullpen help. Sure, they need to get themselves a starter or two that can help keep them afloat in 2011, but they do have some players in the minor leagues that could be given a chance come April. In regards to starting pitching in this market, and with the Mets situation, I’d think players like […]
I’m a big Dave Matthews Band fan, to me, they are the band that will live forever just like The Beatles are the band that lives forever for my father. I can turn on any song, at any time, and be in peace. There’s a lyric that comes to mind when I try and describe Winter 2010-2011 in regards to our fan base. “Everybody wake up. If you’re living with your eyes closed. See the […]
The last two weeks or so have been some of the worst I’ve experienced as a Mets fan. I can deal with the 2007 and 2008 collapse. I can deal with Generation K being Generation 0. I can even deal with losing the World Series to the Yankees and losing Game 7 of the NLCS against the Cardinals. What I can’t deal with is watching the fan base at war with one another over who […]
From the beginning, I feel like I’ve been the person here who tells everybody to take a deep breath. Whether it be the fans who want Zack Greinke, or Cliff Lee, whether it be the saber-cats, or the saber-haters, or the Bobby V supports, or even yes, my favorite Mets player of all-time, Wally Backman. Somebody wrote a blog today that said the “ONLY” choice for Manager is Wally Backman. Let me start by not […]
Over the past I’d say two years, I’d put the Mets fanbase up against any other Major League team’s as having the most divided fans when it comes to statistical analysis. It is as much of a line in the sand lately as whether you’re a Republican or Democrat. I think part of the problem is that there is so much negativity around the construction of the current roster that the negativity rolls through the […]
As I was writing a response to Cerrone & Joe D and the rest of our MMO population, I realized I was writing a blog. Therefore, I figured a responsive blog may be the best route to go. It’s a great debate. It’s one that isn’t stale and what I find fascinating about it is well two things. #1 – Nobody knows the answer because nobody knows who the General Manager is, and #2 – […]
The New York Mets are an excellent comparison to the United States voter population in the 2008 Presidential Race. Whether you voted for one or the other, you know as well as I do that the theme of that race was “change.” Not only was it the theme then, but it’s the theme now with elections being held in about two weeks. Everybody wants to see “change,” because in one way or the other they […]
So, I just finished reading a post on metsblog.com, where Matthew Cerrone posts a tweet from Ian O’Connor regarding Joe Torre’s comments about whether he’d listen to the Wilpon’s regarding a chance to manage the Mets. Here are the quotes from Cerrone and also Michael Baron that left me turning my head to the side like a confused lhasa apso. “I have yet to speak with a Mets fan who is in favor of Torre […]
I know I’ve been gone for a while. Life occasionally takes precedence over things like MMO and the Mets as a whole. Truthfully, when I’m home and able to turn on a baseball game, I’m more interested in watching a game that matters rather than Mets/Pirates. Does it make me a bad fan? Well, no, it just means I don’t live and die with needing to watch every game. I check in, I get updates, […]
