“I believe” in miracles. I really believe in trades when they make sense. My personal feelings aside (for now), I think everybody on this team should be up for grabs and should not be deemed “untouchable”.

Lots of time over the weekend to think about the plight of the Mets. First was the Connecticut press asking Fred about the Mets, when he was promoting UConn basketball on SNY. Funny, most people in Connecticut -including me – do not get SNY on their cable stations. Now I’m wondering if he wants to […]

It’s hard to believe that Mets quasi-number two starter, Mike Pelfrey (10-6, 4.16), has not won a game since June 25th when he improved his record to 10-2.  Since that day he has seen his ERA swell from 2.42 to 4.16, and he has gone past the fifth inning just once in seven starts. Pelfrey will […]

Yesterday I spent the day at a friend’s house during the Mets/Phillies game. This friend just recently had a son, the first child in our group of friends. You know as I was hanging out outside, I’d check in on the game in the living room, we both watched the final outs and once the […]

Fear of Racism in Queens?

Let’s speak bluntly, shall we? Everybody who has followed the columns and discussions on MMO this season knows I have wanted JMAN to be an ex-Mets manager since spring.
