An article by posted on October 5, 2010 0 Comments

We interrupt your regularly scheduled day of blog reading to give you breaking news that’s already been broken. Omar Minaya has been relieved of his GM duties and Jerry Manuel’s option for the 2011 season was not picked up. Of course, this wasn’t even breaking news before it became official.  It was a foregone conclusion […]

You Let Your Team And Your Fans Down, Omar…

There was so much to digest between the press conference and the half-dozen or so interviews with the Wilpons on Monday. But after everything was all said and done, one thing Jeff Wilpon said really struck me as odd, and even 24 hours later, I can’t seem to shake it and I still find myself going back to it. […]

There Was No Hiding The Wilpon’s Discontent

I watched Fred and Jeff Wilpon squirm yesterday with embarrassment and pain. It was clear to me by their body language and tone of voice they felf genuine embarrassment and frustration of having to go through the firing and hiring process once again. They were under the glare of the spotlight not only in New […]

Admission is the first step to beating addiction, particularly when you’ve been living in denial for so long.  To that I have a big declaration to make here, and I wanted to share it with fellow Mets fans. I have come to the conclusion that 2006 was an accident. Hi Mets fans, my name is […]

They’re gone!  Yes, Omar Minaya is thankfully no longer the General Manager of the New York Mets.  Even better news is that Jerry “The Gangsta” Manuel has finally been fired and will no longer be managing the Mets and laughing after a loss. I know the beat writers will miss him but we’re finally free […]

Fred And Kevin Get Candid On Camera

This afternoon I watched an interview on SNY that was a gem. Kevin Burkhardt sat down and quietly spoke with Fred Wilpon about all that has been happening the past few weeks. About all the current Mets news – hirings, firings, etc. and the changes that will now be able to take place as the […]

Another Salute To Dickey

Heading into this season R.A. had a 14-22 record and 6.30 ERA in 48 career starts.  The nicest thing that could be said of his career numbers were centered about the promise he showed while working out of the Mariner’s bullpen in 2008, when he posted a 2.oo ERA in 36 relief innings. This year, […]

Morning Grind: ’12 Is The New ’11 For The Mets

Just another manic Monday, huh, Met Nation? Hopefully, better days are on the horizon for what could be arguably the most beleaguered large market team in the league. It’s expected that the team wins. It’s expected that the team spends. It’s expected that there are more playoff runs, positive progressions and growth, and pennants and […]

And The Award For The 2010 Mets Whipping Boy Goes To…

An article by posted on October 4, 2010 0 Comments

He’s a terrible manager. He burns out the bullpen. He hooks the starters too quickly. The players don’t respond to him. There’s dissension in the clubhouse. He’s lost control of the team. He needs to go. Once we get rid of him things will improve. No, I’m not talking about Jerry Manuel. I heard these […]

To New Beginnings…

It would have been nice to end the season with one more win today, but I think we all saw the writing on the wall the second we saw Oliver Perez emerge from the bullpen gate. Still, I am very proud of the many accomplishments that so many of our players made this season, especially […]
