An article by posted on December 17, 2010 0 Comments

To be honest, in preparing for the Mets Holiday party, I was pretty sure there would be one player I would not get the chance to talk to: Carlos Beltran. With all the hype surrounding a possible position change or even a trade, I figured Beltran would briefly talk to the writers and reporters and […]

Entering only his second season in the big leagues, Ike Davis carried himself like a classy veteran at the Mets Holiday party on Tuesday.

Despite handing out gifts to 100 school children dressed in a hot Santa outfit, David Wright still talked for over 10 minutes with several bloggers at the Mets Holiday party on Tuesday. Wright played Santa for the second time, with the last time being back in 2006. It’s hard to believe, but Wright will now […]

Opening Day is 3 ½ months away and we all know what to expect in 2011. Not a damn thing. Sandy Alderson has stated that it will be a season to observe, to listen and learn, and rebuild for the future. Safe to say not many of us have hope for next season. It’s December 2010 […]

I was contemplating whether or not to write this and perhaps allow our collective wounds time to heal regarding Cliff Lee’s decision to rejoin the Phillies. First off I’ll be up front and tell you that at many points this past season, I was clamoring for the Mets to land Lee. I knew it would […]

Sandy Alderson said Philadelphia’s stunning signing of Cliff Lee will have no great bearing or impact on his plans for putting together the Mets for 2011. Nor should it.

New Mets manager Terry Collins, dressed in his red holiday garb, was also kind enough to answer some questions at the Christmas party. As with Alderson, the bulk of the conversation focused on the Cliff Lee signing. “Certainly I was shocked, but I know better than to be shocked in our business,” said Collins. “They […]

The major topic we discussed was the Cliff Lee deal with the Phillies. “A little bit surprised it was the Phillies,” said Alderson. “We knew there was a third club involved. It makes […]

No Apologies. Just My Philosophy.

I’ve been called a Mets apologist here lately. I don’t really understand that to be honest. What am I apologizing for? Giving a newly hired GM more than 3 months and 0 games played before I judge him? Guilty as Charged I guess. But, while being called an apologist I’ve been accused of just negating […]
