After two of the most shameful games in the history of the New York Mets, I’m calling for the team owner – yes, you Fred Wilpon – to make some moves. Last night a local sport station host played “Taps” as he recounted the past two games. He’s a long time fan of the Mets […]

The Weeks Ahead: One Last Chance

I know, no sane fan can come away from a 14-1 flogging at the hands of one of the worst teams in baseball and shout “Who’s Next!”  As a Met fan these days, however, sanity is not an option.  Even with bitterness in my heart and vinegar running through my veins I have to at […]

Last Night, The Mets Mailed It In

 OK, fine, that was the turning point, but the real indictment of the Mets came in the eight other innings.

It’s not the adversity, but how you respond that is critical, and the […]

Mets start their six game road trip against two division rivals with a 4-1 loss against the Braves. The Mets just seemed to give up during the game, with the exception of Santana who got better as the game went on. There was, once again, no offense to help Santana who had a decent outing […]

Are we banking on August to make the playoffs? I’m glad one of my fellow bloggers beat me to the punch. No way was I going to list all the teams’ new acquisitions and dredge up all the angst that I had pent up inside of me. Saying that this franchise was handcuffed by the […]

Oliver Perez Is Our Recurring Nightmare

An article by posted on August 2, 2010 0 Comments

Let me start by saying that I’m not hanging yesterday’s loss on Oliver Perez. The game was lost and completely out of hand long before he took the hill in the eighth inning. In fact that’s why he came into the game… The only time we see Ollie now, is when a win becomes as […]
