Where’s The Thump In Bay’s Bat?

An article by posted on May 18, 2010 0 Comments

Jason Bay is a guess hitter because he has been streaky his entire career.  So far, his short tenure with the Mets has been one wrong answer after another.   Take the seventh inning of Sunday’s fifth straight Mets loss – Please.  With the annoying Marlins about to break out a four-pack of brooms, the Mets […]

Mets Need To Fire Coaches Too!

An article by posted on May 18, 2010 0 Comments

Baseball is a long season and when a team under-performs the way the Mets are you always hear the usual fire the manger and/or general manager.  I support that 100%.  Jerry and Omar absolutely need to go.  Omar has done a horrible job of building the franchise and Jerry Manuel is just not a manager […]

Is Hisanori Takahashi The Answer?

An article by posted on May 17, 2010 0 Comments

Who is Hisanori Takahashi? Peering into the vacuum of 2010, I would have to say he has been one of the most consistent relievers for the Mets this season.  And…well, that’s about it. The rumblings we’ve been hearing on blogs, news sites and other media forms are true: Takahashi is scheduled to make Friday night’s […]

A Little Competition Never Hurt Anybody

As I’ve gotten older I’ve seemed to have become more and more nostalgic about my childhood. It’s only natural considering in September I’m going to be a father for the first time. I remember the lessons my dad taught me as if he sat me down yesterday. One lesson that made a huge impression was […]

Why Jerry Goes, and Omar Stays

An article by posted on May 17, 2010 0 Comments

This will be my final defense in the case of Omar Minaya versus the NY Mets fan base. Last night, I wrote an article where I explained why it’s time for Jerry Manuel to be let go. There is a difference to me between wanting a manager fired in May because the team lost a […]

Mets In Contact With Other Teams For A Top Starter

An article by posted on May 17, 2010 0 Comments

According to a report by Andy Martino of the Daily News, the Mets do have the payroll flexibility to add another starter “if they remain in contention”. That’s a big “if” of course. A person with direct knowledge of the Mets’ thinking also told Martino that the team has no interest in bringing Pedro Martinez back to Queens. […]

Where Is Nelson Figueroa When You Need Him

An article by posted on May 17, 2010 0 Comments

We could use Nelson Figueroa.  After Johan Santana and Mike Pelfrey, he would be our next best starting pitcher. I was never sold on John Maine after seeing him in spring training.  He’s recently had a few positive starts, though those were against weak hitting NL teams and at the friendly confines of Citifield when […]

One Mets Fans’ View…From the Cheapest Seat…

It’s finally happened Met Nation. I finally snapped and used my “TV Brick” to throw at my 37 inch flat panel. The sponge brick, a gift from my ex-wife about 16-18 years ago, heretofore has only been used when watching NFL football. The last time I recall I threw it in anger was a playoff […]

It’s Time to Shea Goodbye to Jerry

An article by posted on May 16, 2010 0 Comments

So I spent the weekend away, away from the internet and for the most part away from the Mets outside of highlights on the MLB Network in the morning. Oh, by the way. Personal endorsement. If you have the option to watch MLB Network’s Quick Pitch or MLB Tonight instead of Sportscenter/Baseball Tonight. Do yourself […]
