For many years, environmentalists have been looking for energy sources that do not consume fuel or contribute to the excessive amounts of pollution in the air.  One of the energy sources that satisfy those criteria is wind.  And one of the best wind generators in recent times is right here in New York, wearing #44 […]

According to Andy Martino of the Daily News, Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya’s jobs are safe for now. The Mets have lost six of seven games since the All-Star break, but all indications are that manager Jerry Manuel and general manager Omar Minaya are in no immediate danger of losing their jobs. Minaya is making […]

Mets Need A Jolt…Time To Deal Frenchy, Barajas…

An article by posted on July 22, 2010 0 Comments

For the month of July, the Mets are every bit as bad as they were good in June. Exactly 1 month ago, the Mets were hot and heavy for Cliff Lee. Now, personally, I thought the Mets should have made a move a month ago, when the situation was that the team could land a starter to […]

Counting Down to the End of Jerry and Other Thoughts

An article by posted on July 22, 2010 0 Comments

Last night was one of those rare moments in my long life as a Mets fan when I was actually torn about wanting them to win the game. At the same time I was hoping that Oliver Perez would get out of that 2AM New York time jam, I was also rooting for a total […]

Mets Swept Away In Desert Storm, Things Look Bleak

An article by posted on July 22, 2010 0 Comments

The only thing worse than getting swept by the woeful Arizona D’Backs, is actually staying up to watch all three losses. There’s plenty of blame to go around, but make one thing clear, this isn’t just an ordinary team slump, this team is sinking fast. All the good vibes and great clubhouse chemistry that seemed to fill […]

D.O.A.: Deadline on Arrival

An article by posted on July 22, 2010 0 Comments

If the past helps dictate the present, I have high doubts that Omar Minaya will make a move, any move, good or bad, to help this team at the trading deadline.  Why is that?  Well, when has he EVER been aggressive at the trading deadline?  Or with trades, period? I had a conversation on Twitter […]

Oliver Perez (0-3, 6.28 ERA)  was pulled from the starting rotation after allowing 7 runs in just 3 1/3 inning against the Florida Marlins back on May 14th and when asked by upper management, Oliver refused a minor league assignment. With no other options manager Jerry Manuel was left with a wasted roster spot as […]

It was a sad day in baseball land for the athletes when the criteria for getting into the game/lineup became based on your contract $$$ rather than the statistical averages of your on the field abilities. This is not how they do it in Little League where everyone must play a certain amount of time/innings. […]

The Second Lefty: A New Mets Bullpen Concept

The Mets are crumbling my friends. Yes, I know crumbling may be a little too strong a word to describe the state of the Mets right now, but what else can you call it at this point, it’s not September 30th so it’s clearly too early to call it choking. And there’s still some time to […]

Thole Needs To Stay; Focus on 2011.

An article by posted on July 21, 2010 0 Comments

I think I’m starting to come to the realization that not only will the Mets not pick up a big time pitcher before the deadline, but that this team really isn’t a playoff caliber team. I know what’s going to happen, half of the comments will be calling me out like I’m some fair-weather fan, […]
