An article by posted on January 25, 2010 0 Comments

Mike Puma of the NY Post, opined that Fernando Tatis could be re-signed by the Mets if they decide to take a pass on Carlos Delgado. The prevailing wisdon is that Tatis would be able to platoon with the left-handed Daniel Murphy at first base. As most of you know, I’m not thrilled with the idea […]

Delgado Limps Himself Out Of First Base Job

An article by posted on January 25, 2010 0 Comments

Jayson Stark of ESPN, reported yesterday that scouts who have seen Delgado try to play first base in Puerto Rico are not impressed. He writes,   “He’s got no range at first — none,” said one scout. “He actually limps out there. He can’t play first on a day-to-day basis. I think he can still DH, because he’s […]

Trying To Make Sense Of The Outrage

Only Mets fans can spend 48 hours vigorously debating a trade that swapped one 25th man for another. All of a sudden Brian Stokes, who allowed 72 hits and 38 walks in just 70 innings, is likened to a budding star due to his same old and tired 95 mph fastball that has yet to […]

Adios Luis Castillo – Thanks For The Memories

An article by posted on January 24, 2010 0 Comments

It’s hard to believe that a player could hit .302, with an OBP of .387, and still be so unwanted.  But when you break down the numbers, you see why Luis Castillo is such a poor fit for the 2010 Mets.  Of course his defense is weak.  But I see his offense as an equally […]

We Have Ourselves a Brawl Club, The Mets of NY Town

Elio Chacon, an original Met, may best be remembered for starting the first triple play in Mets history in 1962. It happened on May 30 (Memorial Day), and it came against the Los Angeles Dodgers. They were playing their first game in New York since their final game at Ebbets Field on September 24, 1957 […]

This morning, Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog writes, “Yep, the Mets are up to something, and close to making a deal… fingers crossed.” I would certainly hope the Mets are up to something… With Ben Sheets now being the best option left in free agency, everyone suddenly thinks they are Nostradamus and are predicting that he is […]

Is the Mets “brand” damaged ?

An article by posted on January 22, 2010 0 Comments

In years previous I’ve heard Omar in a few of his “State of the Mets” interviews include phrases like “our brand remains strong” or “we remain confident in our brand”. Usually, this is a corporate phrase thrown around when discussing the state of a company’s business. In my heart of hearts, I’d like to think […]

The Three Scruffy Looking Ones In The Back

An article by posted on January 21, 2010 0 Comments

What a strange and long off season it has been for the New York Mets. Pitchers and catchers report in less than a month, and as someone jested on Twitter, we have neither. After being spurned by Bengie Molina after a five week courtship, Joel Pineiro flat out rejected us even before we could get […]

Losing Bengie is a Lucky Break

An article by posted on January 20, 2010 0 Comments

The knee-jerk reaction among the unenlightened on New York sports talk radio (can someone please shut WFAN’s Chris Carton up for crissakes!) and in the blogosphere today is that the Mets blew another one when catcher Bengie Molina decided to spun the club’s offer and sign for less money to return to San Francisco. But […]

Heart is such an important characteristic necessary to build a championship team.  And many fans have concluded that this is a trait that David Wright lacks. In response to fan chatter,  David has set out on a journey in order to find heart.  And Jose Reyes has gone along for the ride in hopes of […]
