Something Is Rotten In Queens

All year long we’ve been told that the Mets are financially in good health. It’s been the mantra ever since the name Bernard Madoff made headline news with his Ponzi scheme and swept the Wilpon family and Sterling Enterprises on board his swarmy carpet ride; not to mention all the livelihoods he destroyed along the […]

Lets See What Jenrry Mejia Can Do

An article by posted on September 2, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets announced yesterday that Jenrry Mejia will start Saturday’s game at Chicago. Not a surprise. I hope the Mets give Mejia a lot of rope to see what he is capable of doing. Remember he spent a lot of the season in the bullpen, so his innings aren’t what they could be had he […]

Strange ways, here we come… I believe that with the trade of Jeff Francoeur last night to the Texas Rangers, the Mets have essentially conceded the season. Not that I truly believed there is a “chance” that things could turn around, but you can never tell with baseball.  I guess I’m a bit naive that […]

In Doug’s Dugout today we discuss: The Status Quo, Changes, and other mindless random thoughts.   The best part of going on vacation is returning to the comforting surroundings of home.  At least, that’s what I tell my kids.  If you don’t like sleeping in your own bed then buy a new mattress.  Came back from […]

Good Morning, Orange and Blue! So many topics, so little time. We’re hitting it hard and fast this Wednesday. Pat Misch-take I heard the fans that thought bringing up Pat Misch was a great idea when Taka II began to struggle at the #5 spot. I’d rather give the shot to Gee or let Mejia […]

An article by posted on September 1, 2010 0 Comments

The past two days have been miserable for the Mets who have had pretty poor starting pitching, poor hitting and defensive miscues. The Mets look to avoid the sweep tonight in Atlanta as Mike Pelfrey looks to play stopper against Tommy Hanson. Pelfrey has been on a very successful tear of late where he is […]

The Mets said they understood the importance of this series in Atlanta and the need to sweep to have any chance of making September relevant. The Mets said they were ready. Can you imagine what would have happened had they not have been? Last night’s dismantling at the hands of the Braves was disheartening not […]

Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog has posted that Peter Gammons told WFAN that he believes Bobby Valentine will be the next manager of the Mets. “I think there are two things: 1) He has a history and a good working relationship with Omar Minaya and 2) he is one guy that, though Jeff Wilpon will not always […]

Pain Management: Finding A Successor For Jerry Manuel

An article by posted on August 31, 2010 0 Comments

As we await the inevitable firing of Mets manager Jerry Manuel, there’s no shortage of names in the Mets blogosphere for potential candidates. But much of what I’m hearing seems more like reliving the “good old days” rather than assuring we get the best person for the job. Ask most Mets fans and read most […]
