I’m not ready to jump off a ledge just yet, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit scared right now. At a time when the Mets should be playing their best baseball, we have instead been witness to shoddy defense, horrendous relief pitching, and a lackluster approach at the plate. The Mets are reeling. Jose Reyes has become a liability in September, Carlos Delgado is still a no-show after a [...]
The Phillies have once again closed the gap between themselves and our first place Mets. Not a single good thing came out of the weekend series, except our MVP hopeful David Wright becoming only the third player in Mets history to join the 30/30 club. Two Mets players were ejected during the series for legitimately arguing balls and strikes. It was as if the Mets were taking on 10 players in the field. The calls [...]
Disgusting is all that needs to be uttered. No other words are necessary to describe the performance of the Mets this past weekend against the Philadelphia Phillies. With a six and a half game lead in the division entering play on Friday, the series presented a chance to slam the door on the Phillies playoff aspirations. Come Monday morning, the lead has been trimmed to a mere 3 and a half game cushion and the [...]
A season can have several turning points or shifts in momentum. When the Mets win it all in 2007 and I look back and reflect on the season, the biggest turning point to me will be the sweep in Atlanta. I have read several articles and blogs which refer to the the disaster in Philly as the turning point for the Mets, but I beg to differ. That may have been a turning point for [...]
When the wrecking ball begins to lay waste to what once was heaven to millions of fans, it will not be a Mets baseball game that would have closed out the long and proud history of Shea Stadium. In fact, it will be the Piano Man, Billy Joel, who will preside over Shea Stadium’s final farewell. The native New Yorker will perform a string of concerts there shortly after the end of the Mets 2008 [...]
All of this week it seems we have spent considerable time lobbying for one of our own beloved Mets, David Wright, to win the National League Most Valuable Player Award. Actually, David has been making his OWN case for most of the season, everyone else finally seems to be catching on now. In my personal (and admittedly biased) opinion, he should very well be the league MVP. Especially if the Mets can beat Jimmy “Big [...]
When the Mets got swept by the Phillies in Philadelphia a few weeks ago, you could have almost thought it was the end. We all know that this team has not played with the intensity and spark that they did last year. But all of a sudden, the Mets can’t do anything wrong. It’s almost as if we did take a trip back to 2006. I complained and moaned about Paul LoDuca not batting second. [...]
Time does not heal all wounds. The pain of what happened on September 11th, 2001 has not subsided. We can put the tragedy of what took place on that day out of our minds, but we can never put it out of our hearts. Every single day, Americans are still dying because of 9/11. Their lives continue to raise the death toll of that tragic day. What started out as 3,000 lives lost, has now [...]
Wake me up, when September ends. Do not be deceived, Green Day is not coming to town. For the Mets however, the playoffs are schedule to appear in Flushing this fall for their second annual run at the World Series title. Exactly twenty games remain on the schedule for the Metropolitans in this 2007 season, not one of which is against a team clinging to a spot in the post season. According to the Elias [...]
I had one of those mornings this morning… I think it was because I didn’t have any coffee. Hey, I can’t wait to see Pedro take the mound tomorrow afternoon at Shea. Yesterday he said he feels sharper than he did during his first start and that he expects to throw more pitches than the 76 he threw against the Reds. I think Carlos Delgado is snake bit or something… The only two times this [...]
It’s still to early to say who will win the National League MVP in 2007, but one player who is starting to get some much deserved attention, is New York Mets third baseman, David Wright. Back in April and May when Wright was enduring one of the longest slumps in his career, nobody could have imagined that he would bounce back so strong that he would find himself among the top ten in almost every offensive category. Nobody [...]
