Shades of the 2009 Mets are already apparent here this season. Though that team was more talented on paper, it was ravaged by the injury bug which gave Jerry Manuel very little to work with on a day-to-day basis. Well, it seems that injuries already have played a role this season. Last year’s breakout player, […]

Giants Fans Make Themselves At Home, Dodgers Fans Right Behind Them

In this photo from Yahoo Sports taken during last nights game, you can see evidence of what you probably heard during the game’s broadcast which was a crowd where San Francisco Giants fans far outnumbered Mets fans at Citi Field.

Ground Zero, Revisited

It was a quiet President and a small group of White House officials who came back to Ground Zero today after first stopping at the Fire House where 15 firemen were lost. He then moved on to the site where Ground Zero has changed a lot since most of us last saw it. There are […]

Game Summary The pitching was there tonight, but offense was nowhere to be found. Capuano had a nice start, bullpen held up well, but Lincecum and bullpen just proved to be too much for the Mets offense.

David and Derek

First I’ll talk about David Wright because this is a Mets site. Why is it that so many Mets fans want to tear down Wright’s obvious love of the game and his only team, the Mets? There are no perfect people, and certainly no perfect ballplayers, but there are those who are different. These are […]

With the impressive performance of Pedro Beato so far this season, I am beginning to see some similarities of another young pitcher that I have grown quite fond of over the years.

The Mets lost the opener last night, and it was a rough one. It was a back and forth for the majority in the game and after a high energy top of the ninth where the Mets got out of a runner on third with no outs, they responded with putting runners on in the […]

System Failure

Mets lost 7-6 tonight against the Giants, but the play on the field told a different story and it wasn’t as close as the score would suggest. This was a sloppy game for the Mets, with plenty of fundamental errors, mental lapses and too many missed opportunities to count. Josh Thole had three hits, but […]

Joel Sherman of the NY Post has a rough take on where the Mets are and even says it’s okay for some Mets fans to be delusional about the Mets chances this year. Thanks Joel. He also discusses some of the potential trade options for the Mets and of course it’s the same usual suspects; Jose […]
