Atlanta Braves: (78-56; Leader) Alright, you already know what the Bravos have been up to, but did you know that they’re going to play the Florida Marlins next? Riveting stuff. Also, Tim Hudson won NL Pitcher of the Month on the back of his 1.71 ERA in August. Philadelphia Phillies: (76-58; -2) Last week, when […]

Jeff Francoeur: The Other Side Of Yesterday

An article by posted on September 3, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday I posted a widely controversial blog about my disdain over much of the internet reaction to the Jeff Francoeur trade on Wednesday night. The post was intended to characterize the stark differences between internet savvy Mets fans and those who follow the team in more traditional ways. It was also my own personal reaction to the hate-fest that […]

Good Morning, Mets Faithful. I’ll attempt to take you into your weekend with a few thoughts. Gee, Mejia or Both? Well, I got my wish. Dillon Gee’s primed for a Sept. call-up. Yet another effort to see our AAA guys get a shot to get a chance, Omar’s “going young” mandate not withstanding. The 24-year-old is 13-7, 4.69 ERA in 27 starts […]

Most Mets Fans Gave Francoeur A Proper Sendoff

During last night’s Mets broadcast, I thought the best part of a dismal game was when Gary, Keith and Ron found themselves stumbling for words when the results of the Toyota Text Poll was revealed. Here is a screen shot courtesy of Amazin Avenue. Keith Hernandez spoke out first and said “Hmmm”. Gary Cohen and Ron Darling were a little more […]

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 […]

The Kids Are All Right…We Hope

An article by posted on September 1, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]

Morning Grind: Misch-take, Ollie’s Beef, Liar-Liar

An article by posted on September 1, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]
