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 […]

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.

As most of you already know, Ben Sheets spent the 2009 season recovering from surgery to fix up his torn flexor tendon, but now he seems to be recovering pretty good. A slew of teams will be showing up later today to see Sheets pitch for the first time in almost a year. Then soon […]

It Didn’t Take The Mets Long Did It?

An article by posted on January 19, 2010 0 Comments

It only took the Mets 14 days into the New Year to embarrass themselves and their fans.  Of course I’m talking about the whole debacle over Carlos Beltran’s knee surgery.  Once again the Mets completely mishandled the news of an injury to a key player on their team.  Some that should have been simple has […]

Mets Need “QUALITY” Versatility

An article by posted on January 17, 2010 0 Comments

Okay Fans. It’s time to put to bed all the foolishness that has enveloped the Mets this past week. Make no mistake. It is ALL foolishness. We can try to ascertain who is at fault, who was right, who was wrong. Analyze it. Whatever. The bottom line is we’re missing, arguably, our best player for […]

In 2005, Jose Offerman was a Met for about 15 minutes.  In 72 at-bats for New York, Offerman hit .250, with one HR and 10 RBI.  Since his cup of coffee with the Mets, the 41-year old Offerman has been fighting to get back into the major leagues.  Unfortunately, he taken the fighting part a […]
