An article by posted on October 12, 2010 0 Comments

We’ve spent the last week talking about who will be our next manager and GM. As Sandy Alderson recently moved to the top of the GM list, most Mets fans are clamoring for either Wally Backman or Bobby Valentine to take over as skipper. My question is: Why not both? It seems improbable, almost impossible, […]

Mets Need To Do The Wright Thing

An article by posted on October 8, 2010 0 Comments

The Cardinals didn’t make the post-season this year but I don’t expect them to be trading Pujols. The Rockies didn’t make it either but somehow I don’t see them shopping Troy Tulowitzki. The Padres just missed but I am pretty confident they’ll hang on to Adrian Gonzalez. So, why oh why, would the Mets be […]

He’s a terrible manager. He burns out the bullpen. He hooks the starters too quickly. The players don’t respond to him. There’s dissension in the clubhouse. He’s lost control of the team. He needs to go. Once we get rid of him things will improve. No, I’m not talking about Jerry Manuel. I heard these […]

Lets be honest. We all could have been Yankee fans. We could be wearing Derek Jeter jerseys, praying every night to our God Mickey Mantle and ending all debates with the robotic illogical response, “27 Championships.” But we’re not. We’re Mets fans. And like a marriage, we’re in this for better or worse. Lately, however, […]

In Defense Of The Wilpons: Are The Mets Heading To The Junkyard?

Think back to that first car you owned. Wont it always have a special place in your heart? Remember all the great memories and the feeling of freedom that came with it. Cruising around with your friends, stereo blasting. Driving a bit too fast, too reckless. Finding that one special dimly lit place to make […]

It was a good day. We scored a run in the bottom of the 8th to defeat Montreal 5-4, reached .500 and now trailed the first place Phillies by just 3. Orber Moreno picked up the W in relief and Braden Looper collected his 20th save. Batting 7th that day was a rookie 3bman named […]

It was June 15, 1977 when the Mets were sent into a tailspin that would last almost a decade. ‘The Franchise’ was traded to Cincinnati for 5 players who were basically scrubs. After what became known as The Midnight Massacre the Mets proceeded to average 96 losses for the next 7 years. It was 6 […]

In the most emotionally charged scene in the movie ‘Tombstone’ Wyatt Earp, played brilliantly by Kurt Russell, screams to Ike Clanton, ‘You tell ‘em I’m comin! And Hell’s comin’ with me!’ When the Mets headed north from Florida and embarked on the 2010 season, none of us were optimistic. By the time Spring Training ended […]
