Where’s Omar Minaya? I Want Him Back.

In November, Andy Martino wrote this article for the Daily News, saying that Omar had received a job offer from Arizona and will discuss a potential opening with Alderson. About six weeks ago, Ian Begley wrote this, quoting Fred Wilpon as saying he personally wishes Minaya return to the organization in an advisory or scouting role, […]

Update 3/14 10:00 AM Steve Popper of the Bergen Record stands by what his Mets source told him regarding the possibility of Johan Santana potentially being shutdown due to soreness and perhaps lost for the season. Regardless of what you believe I can respect him for sticking to his story which may not be as […]

Goodbye To Our Dear Friend Adam

Late last night I learned that one of our own, Adam Baker, passed away at the age of 35 due to complications after kidney transplant surgery. The news hit me like a ton of bricks and I’m still finding it hard to come to grips with his loss. Adam was a good friend and one […]

Thoughts On Roster As We Move Closer To Opening Day

It’s hard to believe that as of this writing, a new baseball season will begin and 30 teams will be tied for first place again… or last depending on your point of view – in 20 days. Yesterday, the Mets made their first round of cuts and although I never expected Fernando Martinez or Ruben […]

K-Rod Will Be A Major Force In 2011

Before that unfortunate altercation ended his season, Francisco Rodriguez was well on his way to a tremendous campaign in 2010. His 3.30 BB/9 was the best of his career, and his 10.52 K/9 was down right nasty. According to ESPN, one of the reasons for his improved performance last season was that he threw more first-pitch strikes than ever before, a […]

Meet the Debts. How close is this team to becoming another ‘Montreal’? For more than two years, the Mets have said that were it not for the Madoff lawsuit, everything would have been fine financially for the team.

This Is Not Funny

An article by posted on March 10, 2011 0 Comments

The team’s standing has apparently fallen so far that it is now the butt of very public jokes.
