With our Magic Number down to 7 and only 8 games left to play, the Mets have one way of ensuring that they clinch a division title… Keep winning! The way the Phillies have been playing lately means that we can’t relax and hope that they lose 2 or 3 games down the stretch. They have a lot of fight and a lot of grit, and they don’t look like they are letting up anytime soon. [...]
I think most baseball fans (including me); have a chip on their shoulder concerning their favorite teams (unless they are Skankee fans that believe their team could win a title with one hand tied behind their backs). Every time a bad play is made fans like us automatically assume that the game and even the season may be lost. So maybe we have a little Eeyore in us, always expecting that rainy day even if [...]
The Mets are in serious trouble. Wait a minute…I think I started a blog back in July with that same sentence. Here we go again: Not only is the team letting their lead in the National League East slip away, but they don’t seem to care. I am not saying these guys don’t want to win, or that they have given up. It’s just that, upon looking at them, it seems as if they are [...]
I’m not ready to jump off a ledge just yet, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit scared right now. At a time when the Mets should be playing their best baseball, we have instead been witness to shoddy defense, horrendous relief pitching, and a lackluster approach at the plate. The Mets are reeling. Jose Reyes has become a liability in September, Carlos Delgado is still a no-show after a [...]
The Phillies have once again closed the gap between themselves and our first place Mets. Not a single good thing came out of the weekend series, except our MVP hopeful David Wright becoming only the third player in Mets history to join the 30/30 club. Two Mets players were ejected during the series for legitimately arguing balls and strikes. It was as if the Mets were taking on 10 players in the field. The calls [...]
Disgusting is all that needs to be uttered. No other words are necessary to describe the performance of the Mets this past weekend against the Philadelphia Phillies. With a six and a half game lead in the division entering play on Friday, the series presented a chance to slam the door on the Phillies playoff aspirations. Come Monday morning, the lead has been trimmed to a mere 3 and a half game cushion and the [...]
A season can have several turning points or shifts in momentum. When the Mets win it all in 2007 and I look back and reflect on the season, the biggest turning point to me will be the sweep in Atlanta. I have read several articles and blogs which refer to the the disaster in Philly as the turning point for the Mets, but I beg to differ. That may have been a turning point for [...]
When the wrecking ball begins to lay waste to what once was heaven to millions of fans, it will not be a Mets baseball game that would have closed out the long and proud history of Shea Stadium. In fact, it will be the Piano Man, Billy Joel, who will preside over Shea Stadium’s final farewell. The native New Yorker will perform a string of concerts there shortly after the end of the Mets 2008 [...]
All of this week it seems we have spent considerable time lobbying for one of our own beloved Mets, David Wright, to win the National League Most Valuable Player Award. Actually, David has been making his OWN case for most of the season, everyone else finally seems to be catching on now. In my personal (and admittedly biased) opinion, he should very well be the league MVP. Especially if the Mets can beat Jimmy “Big [...]
