The last two weeks or so have been some of the worst I’ve experienced as a Mets fan. I can deal with the 2007 and 2008 collapse. I can deal with Generation K being Generation 0. I can even deal with losing the World Series to the Yankees and losing Game 7 of the NLCS […]

An article by posted on November 20, 2010 0 Comments

I admit that the whole process associated with picking the new manager of the Mets is like root canal for me, situational substitution for a guy who has been in the baseball business for over thirty years should come as second nature, and there should be very little difference between Backman, Melvin and Collins.  My […]

An article by posted on November 19, 2010 0 Comments

It’s a simple question to ask, but definitely not one you can easily answer. The topic comes up frequently on MMO, with one pro-Backman fan suggesting that “not only would he be a great choice to be the Mets manager, but he would even sell tickets”.

Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog believes that there is enough of a framework based on circulating rumors, that the Mets and Red Sox should and could connect on a potential deal.

A couple of days ago I pondered the wisdom of the Mets pursuing Justin Upton after coming across the post below from Bob Nightengale. Well what first seemed like just a rumor or speculation, has now grown into a MLB-wide hysteria as there’s no shortage of offers being tossed around complete with quotes from several […]

Guess who’s back? For those of you who don’t know me, I am just as much a Jets fan as I am a Mets fan. For those of you that don’t follow Jets football, the Jets have been experiencing a period of success in the last two years or so. The major factor in the […]
