Whenever I can’t sleep, or wake up much too early – I turn to WFAN and the voice of the night, Tony Paige.  The soft sound of that calming voice helps every time.  Last night, one of the topics was Jose Reyes and the fact that he has never learned to bunt.  Tony’s suggestion is […]

The 18-16 Mets currently find themselves in third place, two and a half games behind the first place Philadelphia Phillies.

Gas is expensive these days and so would be swallowing the contract of Ollie Perez.  Right now you couldn’t get a tank of unleaded in a trade for the maddening lefty.    Nevertheless, it’s time to remove the tags and push this clunker down the hill.  For everyone’s sanity.  “They Shoot Lefties, Don’t they?” has found it’s […]

This won’t be that long of a blog, I swear. Considering right now I’m home early from work and it’s 4-4 in the game, I’m sure most if not anybody reading this is doing so with GameCast on at work or sitting in front of their home television. This is about the Philadelphia Phillies. You […]

A few weeks ago, I suggested that the Mets pitching staff’s overperformance could result in a hat-tipping to Dan Warthen, who may be deceivingly quiet. By “deceiving,” I mean he is not a flashy pitching coach, people rarely ever heard of him before he came to the Mets although he does have a bit of […]

In another time, perhaps 50 years from now, the Mets will get the opportunity to tear down Citifield, and build a new stadium for their fans and team. The life cycle of Citifield will have reached it’s end. The Stadium will have hosted multiple championship teams and hosted All Star, playoff, and World Series games. […]

A Stunning Look Into The Mets’ Offensive Woes

An article by posted on May 11, 2010 0 Comments

There are many question marks surrounding the Mets’ offense this season. Why isn’t Jose Reyes hitting? Why is David Wright striking out so much? Why can’t Jason Bay get a clutch hit? Where did Jeff Francoeur’s bat disappear to? Why isn’t Luis Castillo on crutches yet? It’s enough to make a Mets fan go crazy […]
