An article by posted on March 25, 2010 0 Comments

Call these the “Dog Days,” of Spring Training. With the regular season opener less than two weeks away it still resembles more mirage than oasis.

The storylines have been played out and one can only bang the […]

You’ve heard me say it, and I still think it’s true. I think last year humbled me a bit as a Mets fan, and a baseball fan. Now I’m not saying I’m going to sit quiet, not complain, or not get into a daily debate with Bayonne over the value of getting on base as […]

Welcome to Club Carter, Mets fans. Where the drinks are free and you get all the Kool-aid you can drink. I am still advocating that Carter makes the team. Whether he is given the starting job or a bench spot is not as clear cut in my mind, but I definitely think he should be […]

Do Mets Still Have Problems With Positional Depth?

Depth… Depth… Depth… How deep are the Mets? It’s a thought that sometimes falls through the cracks. The Mets received some great news about Reyes’ and his thyroid issues so he should be getting back to baseball very soon once he’s in baseball shape.

We now return you to ‘As The World Turns‘… That should be what each return from a commercial on SNY and WPIX says this exhibition season… I am becoming more concerned as the Mets continue to have more questions than answers each day spring training continues.

Mets fans are not happy right now.  There are so many question marks.  No one can even agree on who deserves to go north at the end of spring training. As far as uncertainty goes, the starting pitching is the most suspect.  The performance of the Mets #2, #3, and #4 starters are not exactly […]
