You know as if I didn’t wake up today in a worse mood. I’m an NHL Penguins fan and a Mets fan of course, so yesterday was on all accounts, a bad sports day. Today, I read two posts on our site describing in great detail why basically Jerry Manuel deserves to take the heat […]

So here we are, less than 24 hours removed from as tough of a loss to swallow as any we’ve had so far in 2010. There is one positive thing to note from Sunday’s loss. We don’t have to listen to Miller & Morgan talk about the Mets until the Yankees come to town on […]

Blame It On The “Reign” Of Jerry Manuel

An article by posted on May 3, 2010

As I sat there last night and watched a fourth inning unfold that included a bases-loaded walk to the opposing 47-year-old pitcher (the second consecutive walk of the inning, mind you) and a grand slam home run to the most hated Phillies player, probably ever, I thought that maybe, just maybe, I had entered some […]

That Loss Was On Jerry Manuel

Just when things were seemingly going great for the Mets, especially after taking the first game in the just completed Phillies series, they hit a brick wall. And while there was not much the Mets or Jerry Manuel could have done to defeat the always dominating Roy Halladay on Saturday, I do believe they had […]

When The Ace Is No Longer A Given

An article by posted on May 3, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets have an outstanding record in comparison to what most Met fans expected. Almost nobody expected a first place position at this juncture of the season. Almost nobody expected that they would play with such vigor, good defense, and timely hitting. I can safely say that NOBODY expected our ace, the only pitcher that […]

Sunday’s Loss Needed To Be One Of Our ’62′ Wins

An article by posted on May 3, 2010 0 Comments

No matter how good a team is they will still lose 50 games over the course of the season. On the flip side, the worst team in baseball, no matter how awful they may be, will still manage to win 50 games. It’s those other 62 games that separates pennant winners from last place. Tonight’s […]

This past Saturday night, the NYPD began an investigation involving an SUV parked in Times Square packed with fertilizer and fireworks that could have been part of some kind of terrorist attack. A report from the Washington Post surfaced that Police and FBI agents are investigating a 911 call placed at 4 a.m. Sunday from […]

Santana and Reyes: Now It’s Time To Be Concerned

An article by posted on May 2, 2010 0 Comments

Although I often cringe at the MMO posts that are almost an hour-by-hour barometer of the current state of the Mets (lose a few in a row, we’re terrible/win a few in a row, we’re pennant contenders), I couldn’t resist starting to write this as Johan Santana dejectedly trudged off the mound after the lambasting […]

Ike Davis Benched Tonight Despite .571 BA Against Southpaws

An article by posted on May 2, 2010 0 Comments

Gary Matthews Jr. who is batting .156 and slugging .219 in 16 games is starting in centerfield and worse yet leading off tonight. Even if you could make a case for batting GMJ over Angel Pagan, why would you bat him first? Ike Davis is also riding the pine tonight against left hander Jamie Moyer, even […]
