Adam Dunn Was The Way To Go, And Still Could Be…

An article by posted on August 4, 2009 0 Comments

I’m not going to draw you into another one of my diatribes on how the Mets needed to go after Adam Dunn last off season. I wasted too many words on my pursuit of Adam Dunn in the off season, and countless more words expressing my disappointment when he ultimately signed with the Nationals. When […]

So here we are, still a mile away from playoffs ambitions and the hope in the fanbase is dwindling. However, I’m still believing. One of the things that does worry me is the true status of our injured players. The list is long and isn’t easy on the eyes, and it has been growing for […]

When everyone went down on the disabled list we were all waiting on the edge of our seats until after the All-Star break because that’s when Omar and the Mets promised Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes would return and turn the season around.  Today is August 4, 2009 and Beltran and Reyes are not back. […]

I’ll make this short and (hopefully) sweet, so please don’t shoot the blogger.  As you may already know, I am an optimist.  However, as much as I’d like to see the Mets have a miraculous finish to the 2009 season, every time they lose to second division teams like Arizona, the chances of them playing […]

Mets Comeback Falls Short; Lose 6-5 To D’backs

An article by posted on August 3, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets came close to pulling a rabbit out of their hat tonight after falling behind 6-0 to the Diamondbacks after two innings. They came up a run short, but came so close to tying and winning the game if not for another baserunning blunder by Angel Pagan. Nelson Figueroa was called up to make […]

Has Omar Waved The White Flag?

With the Mets making absolutely no moves at the trade deadline, it makes me wonder if Omar Minaya has given up on this years team. After winning 6 of 9, most Mets fans are believing, but apparently Minaya is not. Minaya has also not pushed very hard to get Reyes, Beltran, Delgado, Maine, and Putz […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Month For July!

An article by posted on August 3, 2009 0 Comments

Here we are in August, with a sub-par July behind us. You could say the Mets finished on a high note, but then you’d be partially lying. The Mets took a series win against the Rockies and some momentum into their series with the Diamondbacks, and promptly lost the first and third games. However, there […]

One Nut Job For Another?

You may have heard over the weekend that Wally Backman was fired from his job as manager of the Joliet Jack Hammers of the Northern League. I love Wally, he was a great Met, but I’m not surprised he was let go. What is surprising though, is that some Mets fans are considering and hoping […]

The beards must grow on!  After the players vowed not to shave until the Mets reached the .500 mark, the team continued their inconsistent play since their five-game winning streak ended on Thursday, as they were defeated by the Diamondbacks by the final score of 5-2.  The loss dropped the Mets 7½ games behind the […]

Pedro Feliciano Has Gone From Specialist To Special

An article by posted on August 2, 2009 0 Comments

Here’s a quick question for you to consider.  Who is the longest tenured Mets player currently on the 25-man roster who has not played in the majors for any other franchise during his time with the team?  Although you might think the answer is Jose Reyes, he’s only been with the team since June 2003.
