Give The Kid A Shot

An article by posted on March 11, 2011 0 Comments

Assuming Carlos Beltran isn’t available to the Mets by Opening Day, replacing him shouldn’t equal the dilemma CBS will have in replacing Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men.” Both of Beltran’s knees are aching and he’s down for the week. Maybe he’ll come back next week; maybe he won’t. So, who will the […]

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 […]

Bienvenue, Montreal?

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. However this story in the New York Times disputes that after furthering their own investigation into this […]

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. Manhattan Mini Storage is running an advertisement in the New York City subways that asks the question, “Why leave a city that has six professional sports teams, and the Mets?” Can it get any lower than this?

From Left Field: Duda Vs. F-Mart?

An article by posted on March 10, 2011 0 Comments

Surprise, surprise. Carlos Beltran is hurt once again. After he resumes baseball activities sometime in the next few days, who knows how long it will take our new right fielder to get in baseball shape? While part of me was hoping Beltran would finally return to the field healthy and productive, the other part of […]

The title says it all, enough already with Oliver Perez and lets end the madness! Oliver Perez struggled tremendously during his start against the Astros.  He gave up 3 runs, on 4 hits during his 3 innings of work.  With his latest struggle against the Astros, Terry Collins and Sandy Alderson are now giving Ollie one final […]

Re-Sign Reyes? Sure No Problem, But For How Much?

Rather than post another Reyes blog, I thought I would simply add a small addendum to this one. Ted Berg posted an interesting question on his blog Ted Quarters: So I’m wondering what you think would be a fair price for an extension for Jose Reyes right now. Knowing that he can be awesome, but […]

Hey check out this sneak peak of an Angel Pagan bobblehead that will be given away at a Brooklyn Cyclones game later this season, June 20th to be exact. It’s just a proof, but I think this is awesome! Go to press! (or whatever it is they say in a bobblehead factory.) Thanks to the Mets […]

Did The Decision To Keep Perez Hurt Ticket Sales?

An article by posted on March 9, 2011 0 Comments

I want to share part of an email that came my way on Monday. It came from a longtime reader who occasionally emails the site and it really struck a chord with me. She wrote: Why is Oliver Perez still here? I feel like I’m being punished by the Mets for some unknown reason, or maybe mocked is a better […]
