I got treated to a great link in our chat room yesterday that pretty much blew me away when it opened up. Check out this amazing rendition of Citi Field by the critically acclaimed New York artist, Borbay. This guy is a genius. You need to visit Borbay’s site where he takes you through a complete […]

Making Sense of the Tankersley Signing

An article by posted on January 12, 2011 0 Comments

The signing of LHP Taylor Tankersley on the surface appears to be a mediocre move, but an in-depth look reveals a method to the madness. Tankersley has been with the Marlins for his entire major league career so he knows the division. It is not a huge factor but is a slight benefit knowing the premiere bats in the NL East in advance.

There Is No Winning…

As I have been reading through a lot of postings and responses to signings, lack of signings – it is the same general theme that is occurring. The Mets fanbase being up in a stir over the lack of big signings. When the Mets signed Jason Bay for 66 Million dollars, it didn’t seem to […]

Bonilla’s Millions

When the New Year kicked in, talk of the Mets turned from looking towards the future to taking a not-so-fond trip down Memory Lane regarding one of the most disliked and controversial characters in Mets history. Nope, I’m not talking about Richie Hebner. I’m talking about Bobby Bonilla. While there is much to be said […]

Kris Benson Retires; Says “Im Done”

According to Doug Miller of MLB.com, former Mets starter Kris Benson has apparently retired, saying “I’m done”. Benson pitched for the Mets in 2004 and 2005 after he was acquired with Jeff Keppinger in exchange for Ty Wigginton and Jose Bautista. (yes, that Jose Bautista!) Benson went 14-12 as a Met with a 4.23 ERA in 242 1/3 innings. […]

Violence In America Touches A Baseball Family

I’m writing off-topic again, but not far off. Our country has been shocked this week by violence at an outdoor meet and greet by a Congresswoman from Arizona. Eighteen injured, six killed, and the Congresswoman has a serious brain injury the outcome of which is still in doubt. And how did this happen? A lone […]

No Lewis, No Problem

The Reds yesterday signed Fred Lewis to a one-year deal worth $900,000. This is a great signing for the Reds, but it will force the Mets to turn their attention elsewhere. The NL Central defending champion Reds will sport an outfield comprised of the young stud Jay Bruce in right, exciting Drew Stubbs in center, […]

What If The Mets Can Compete In 2011? Part 2

An article by posted on January 11, 2011 0 Comments

Everyone knows I don’t have much confidence in the 2011 Mets and I’m already looking forward to the 2012 season.  I honestly believe this is just a lost season, where .500 would be acceptable, but “what if” the Mets can compete in 2011? Marvel Comics does a series of comics where they explore the road […]

Whatever The Mets May Be In 2011, They’re Still Our Team

There have been countless lost seasons in this franchise’s history, many of them gone before pitchers and catchers report in February. This is looking like another one of those years. The Mets only did minor tweaking this winter and are no better now than they were when the season ended. They are putting their stock […]

A Team Of Potential

An article by posted on January 10, 2011 0 Comments

As we approach the 2011 season, it seems as though several teams in the NL East have significantly improved this offseason. The Phillies brought back Cliff Lee to set up one of the best pitching staffs, at least on paper, in recent history. The Braves added Dan Uggla to solidify the middle of their order. […]
