An article by posted on July 12, 2010 0 Comments

The New York Mets started this season with the hopes of making up for the previous three disappointing seasons.  The acquisition of Jason Bay, a healthy Johan Santana, Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran and a comeback season for David Wright all made for a very promising year of baseball in Queens. A Look Back:  The […]

The All-Star Game isn’t until tomorrow, but my thoughts have already turned to the post-Break schedule for the Mets.  The Mets are one of nine teams in the hotly contested National League playoff race.  The other eight teams are either leading their respective divisions, leading the Wild Card race or within two games of the […]

When I heard Jason Bay get booed it was the last straw. The last straw as far as keeping my feelings about the booing of home team players as simply a rant among my friends. It was bad enough when David Wright was booed during last season and earlier this year. But when I heard […]

Thomas Kaplan of the NY Times updates us on Oliver Perez who made his third minor league start for Class AAA Buffalo this afternoon.

As Major League Baseball moves into its All-Star Break, it’s time to reflect on the Mets and what they need to do to improve the team in the second half.  Whereas many people have been clamoring for another starting pitcher before the trading deadline on July 31, I don’t think that’s the answer.  In fact, […]

The Mets at the time of this post will be a games away from the All Star break and five games back of the NL East leading Braves. The focus has been on starting pitching and with the apparent signing of Cliff Lee to the Texas Rangers, the Mets will clearly be looking elsewhere for starting pitching. This […]

All Our LeBron’s Have Left Too

I really feel for the Cleveland Cavalier fans today.  Their Franchise has scorned them and moved on to a bigger and brighter stage.  Cleveland fans who really have had nothing but heartbreak for as long as I’ve been alive (39 years) have suffered the ultimate blow.  I thought last year was rough when C.C. Sabathia […]
