An article by posted on June 22, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets looked strong once again last week but lost the last two games of their road trip to the Yankees, posting a 7-2 road trip overall. Santana got victimized by a Grand Slam (again!) and that made the start look a lot worse than it probably was. Beltran’s rehabbing, Mejia’s in AA, and Parnell […]

I’m sure like most of you, I was tickled orange-and-blue when Johan Santana was traded to the New York Mets in the offseason leading to the 2008 season.  I have a few friends who were from Minnesota who did warn me, however, that Santana takes a while to “warm up” during the season.  Expect a […]

Look in the dugout during a Mets game.  If you see Jose Reyes smiling, laughing and dancing, you know the Mets are winning and contending.  If you see him anyway else, they are probably losing.  We saw it happen in 2006.  Reyes led the Mets with 194 hits, batting .300.  He hit 37 doubles, 19 […]

All season long so many of us have dissected in every which way possible, every move the New York Mets have made. Granted some of us have used hacksaws and some of us have used the precision of a neurosurgeon, to make our points. I’ve occasionally waded in both pools, admittedly. The way the Mets […]

I was about 6 years old when my father threatened to throw me out of the house. The reason was simple. I told him I was going to be a Yankees fan. It was the early 1970’s and I knew nothing about Baseball. But still, I was going to root for the Yankees. Why? As […]

Did any of us think this would be possible some six weeks back? We’ve won eight straight, 12 of 13, and we just shut out our favorite team to hate in the Bronx! What a game! What performances! Gamesmanship, strategy, decision-making, fundamentals…concepts we only could have wished for last year at this time. Mets fans […]
