MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 18)

So Murphy and Reyes hit the DL last week – but as a fellow writer stated, this DL stint, if not a serious injury for Reyes, could do a number on his value in the offseason. It could help the Mets retain our star SS for the fturue, but it did make me question how […]

Let’s Face It, Mike Pelfrey Has Maxed Out As A New York Met

Last night was just another example of Mike Pelfrey being Mike Pelfrey. After cruising through the San Diego lineup for the first five innings allowing just one run, it all came crashing down on the right-hander in the sixth. The 27-year-old allowed three runs on four sharply hit balls and a sac fly. The Amazin’s so called “ace” left […]

The Never Say Die Mets, and Other Feeble Thoughts

I have to say, that although the 2011 version of the Mets is a win, a loss, a loss, a win, there have been no dearth of exciting comebacks this season. For instance, take last night. Down and almost out, they rallied with big hits by David Wright and Lucas Duda (he is starting to […]

Being a Mets fans is a full time job. It takes a toll on you mentally, physically (if you break stuff) and emotionally. I can not remember a season in recent memory that was just fun, exciting and enjoyable without any let downs at seasons end. It’s part of what makes being a Mets fan […]

Is Jason Bay FINALLY Turning The Corner?

I know, this is probably the third time someone has written an article just like this when Jason Bay has begun to play decently, but in the past 10-15 games, Bay has looked very strong at the plate. Could this finally be the arrival of the 66 million dollar man that the Mets signed in January of 2010? […]

The Straw That Broke The Camels Back

An article by posted on August 8, 2011 0 Comments

As much as it pains me to say, yesterday’s loss meant more than just an “L” in the loss column. It pretty much signified the end of the Mets playing somewhat meaningful baseball in 2011. The loss dropped the Mets back below .500 and nine back in the wild card. Couple that with the loss […]
