Last seasons’ wounds haven’t healed.  Yet, sitting around discussing the current issues with this current incarnation of the NY Mets with some friends has revealed not panic, but apathy… Willie Harris catch has robbed us of a .500 start, but, more importantly, Johan Santana’s lack of velocity this past Sunday and really for quite some […]

Clutch Hitting… Or Any Hitting At All

An article by posted on April 13, 2010 0 Comments

Experts, fans and anyone with a mouth speaks of such anti-Billy Beane topics as “clutch hitting”. I am here to bring an even crazier philosophy – one so insane, that if you comprehend it you may want to be institutionalized. Its called “hitting, period”. Unfortunately, this is a crazy, next level idea that only appeals […]

On Sunday, 20-year old Aroldis Chapman, who signed a six-year, $30.25-million contract with the Cincinnati Reds, made his first start for Class-AAA Louisville Bats. It was an electrifying debut for one who is sure to become baseball’s next big thing. Chapman’s fastball hit 101 mph on the radar gun and stayed in the high 90s throughout the […]

Guess who’s back? That’s right, it’s the MetsMerized Player Of The Week! I have to admit, I was itching to get back to doing this. It became a part of my weekly lifestyle, and it’s great to know Mets baseball has began once more. Sure, I’ll admit that we haven’t started off in the ideal […]

Jerry Manuel Continues To Mismanage This Team

An article by posted on April 13, 2010 0 Comments

Coming into 2010 we knew that there would be questions regarding the pitching, we knew that there were guys coming back from injuries and we also knew that the Mets needed a good start for Jerry Manuel to keep his job as the manager.  The Mets haven’t started good, losing their first 2 series to […]

Mets Unprepared After Months Of Preparation

An article by posted on April 12, 2010 0 Comments

It’s hard to believe the euphoria of Opening Day took place but a week ago.  Since the Mets won Game One they have lost 4 out of 5, and two consecutive home series against Florida and Washington.  Not the Sterling start this team wanted-or more importantly, needed. Then came yesterday’s revelation by Jerry Manuel that the team was […]

An article by posted on April 12, 2010 0 Comments

Hours after Johan Santana and the Mets ended a disappointing weekend series with a loss to the Nationals, I came across a rather disturbing article on ESPN.com, that really upset the hell out of me. The piece was written (and I use that word loosely) by Ian O’Connor, and to say that it was one of the […]

I always tell my friends who are Yankee’s fans, it’s easy to be a Yankee fan. Everything is handed to you. To be a Met fan it takes a certain rare, albeit hopeful, yet borderline delusional personality. The Yankee’s are like the older brother that grew up a Hilton to the Mets kid who grew […]

I’ll Give The Mets An April 30th Deadline

An article by posted on April 12, 2010 0 Comments

No, it’s not the trading deadline, although at times I wish it were. I have already gone on record as an advocate for optimism when it comes to our orange and blue clad warriors. Reason being, it was near impossible to judge what we had while just watching games that don’t count as well as […]

First Week. First Impressions?

An article by posted on April 11, 2010 0 Comments

I know it’s only one week into this season. We still have 25 more to go. I am in no way giving up on the 2010 Mets. That being said I am feeling pretty pessimistic right now. Am I the only one? As we Mets fans always do, we hope for the best but somewhat […]
