An article by posted on April 5, 2010 0 Comments

When will the booing start?  I don’t think it should.  I am proposing a moratorium on booing the Mets at Citifield.  The question is how long can it last?  There will be plenty of opportunities for booing, but hopefully many more for cheering.  Regardless Mets fans, give it a break.  No booing on Opening Day! Scenario #1 […]

I have been very disappointed in my fellow Mets fans this spring.  I read and hear a vast amount of criticism and negativity about this year – but not much hope or excitement.  Isn’t this attitude why we hate Yankees fans so much.  I understand being critical of the team – even I don’t expect […]

When the Mets made their final cuts today, it opened the door for plenty of second guessing from diehard Mets fans and media alike. The Mets never make it easy on themselves… One of the more peculiar decisions the Mets made in finalizing their 25 man roster today, was deciding to keep reliever Sean Green over […]

The cover of the 62 yearbook was fitting because we were the new team, the baby, of the National League. Along with the Houston Colt 45’s (later the Astros) this brought the total number of major league teams to 20. There were no divisions, no playoffs. You finished first. And you went to the World […]

You may have noticed that I have not written much in recent weeks.  It’s simply because I’ve had little to say.  And as spring training winds down, I am left shocked and speechless, with my mouth wide open.  It’s sad but true.  I am extremely discouraged on the state of the 2010 Mets. All winter […]
