As somebody who thinks Omar Minaya (along with Jerry Manuel) need to be fired so that this franchise can move forward and start with a fresh slate, I am however, a rare commodity. I think the signing of Oliver Perez is NOT one that should cost Minaya his job. I read it on this site, other sites, and hear it on talk radio from fans. To quote directly from a fan post today on this […]
Get it? Okay, anyway. According to Espn.com, the Mets have announced that Billy Wagner has been activated from the disabled list. To make room for Wagner, the Mets have released pitcher Livan Hernandez. Hernandez was 7-8 with a 5.47 ERA. Hernandez started the year off strong, but since July 3rd at Philadelphia, he really hasn’t shown the Mets much. You know, the one thing I could never stand about him was how he never seemed to care […]
If you could come back as a fan of another baseball team, and could not choose the Mets obviously, who would you pick? The team I’d pick is a team I’d love to see the NY Mets begin modeling their franchise after. A Big market team, an energized fan base, a team built with speed, pitching, fundamentals and solid player development. I’d be a fan of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Angels in one […]
As one of Omar Minaya’s biggest supporters, I do believe it will be time to demote him after this season. When you take a look around the big leagues, you notice there are eight teams that will continue to operate with a team salary of over $100 million. Those teams are the Yankees, Mets, Cubs, Red Sox, Tigers, Angels, Phillies and Dodgers. There seems to be one glaring difference between their General Managers and ours, […]
According to foxsports.com, the Florida Marlins have acquired 1B Nick Johnson from the Washington Nationals in exchange for AA prospect Aaron Thompson. Johnson is hitting .295 with 6HR and 44RBI for the Nationals. Johnson turns 31 this September, and will become a Free Agent after this season. The Nationals reportedly will pay $1.8 million remaining on Johnson’s contract. I’m a big Murphy fan, but you have to wonder if Johnson could have been a good […]
Tonight is my last Game Preview/Write-Up for probably close to two weeks. I’ll be heading out to California for my honeymoon early tomorrow morning. We’ll get to see at least 2 Mets games out in San Diego on Friday & Saturday (7th and 8th). Enough about me, let’s talk about tonight’s game! You know, my biggest fear for tonight’s game is that maybe the Mets have been playing so well because they were trying to […]
Was Jarrod Washburn on your wish list of cheap players the Mets could or should have gotten today? If so, cross him off. According to ESPN.com, he has been traded to the Detroit Tigers for 23 year old left handed starter Luke French, and pitching prospect Mauricio Robles. At 34 years old, Washburn is having a career year for the Mariners posting an 8-6 record with a 2.64 ERA paired nicely with a 1.07 WHIP.
On my drive home from work today I heard Evan Roberts (Mets fan) say that he believes this is a mediocre team that is just hot right now. Well, Mr. Roberts, this is a team with at least 4 starting players that belong in backup roles, and are merely 2 games shy of the elusive .500 mark. The wild card leading Colorado Rockies came into town, and our mediocre Mets are just one game from […]
The Mets have won their 4th straight game for the first time since May 10th. Take a minute to let that soak in. May 10th. Since the 3-1 loss in Washington last week, this team has seen the light. You can just see it on their faces, the way they react to one another, working together as a dare I say, team. Last night I noticed something that I haven’t really noticed in a while […]
