After the ending to last night’s game, the Mets needed someone to step up today.  Perhaps it would take the collective efforts of more than one man to erase the bitter taste of the Friday Follies that took place in the ninth inning.  Maybe three men would be needed.  Which men could lead the team […]

There Will Be More Gut Wrenching Losses…

An article by posted on June 13, 2009 0 Comments

Howie Rose called it the worst regular season loss in franchise history and that none ever hurt this bad. He should know, he’s seen them all.

Speechless

I’m speechless, my friends.   In over 40 years of watching baseball I never witnessed a player costing his team the game by flubbing a routine pop up.  Every year baseball shows me something I have not yet seen.   I can live without what I just saw.   Sitting next to my son, the Yankee fan […]

I can’t believe what I just saw… I find it so hard to remain optimistic after watching the Mets lose in gut-wrenching fashion once again. With a huge victory only one out away, Luis Castillo drops the game-ending third out, allowing two Yankees runs to score and give them a walk-off victory in front of a packed […]

With the news that John Maine has been placed on the disabled list with what Omar Minaya calls “weakness and fatigue”, can we now seriously consider the need for another starting pitcher? Who knows when John Maine will come back. If we were to go by what he said last night it would leave us once […]

Ya Gotta Believe or Ya Gotta Bereave?

If you would have told me that the Mets would be in second place at the beginning of June, I probably would have believed you. If you had told me we’d be in second place without Jose Reyes and Carlos Delgado and with Wilson Valdez and Fernando Martinez, I probably would have laughed in your […]

This Is Why The Mets Acquired Tim Redding!

Back in January, the Mets were looking to acquire a big name pitcher to pair up with Johan Santana at the top of the rotation.  Before missing out on Derek Lowe and settling for Oliver Perez, the Mets decided to shore up the back end of the rotation by signing Tim Redding to a one […]
