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 […]

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 […]

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.

Mailbag: Player Options and Prospects

An article by posted on August 2, 2009 0 Comments

Will the Mets pickup the options on Billy Wagner of J.J. Putz? I feel the Mets should not pick up either of their options unless within the final two months of the season they are able to prove that they have significant value with no signs of holding back because of their injuries. The barometer […]

It seems fitting that on Build-A-Bear Night at Citi Field, the Mets would come out of their two-game hibernation.  Their 12-hit attack on the Diamondbacks’ pitchers, capped by Angel Pagan’s eighth-inning grand slam, fueled the Mets to a 9-6 victory Saturday night over Arizona. Pagan picked a perfect time to hit the first home run […]

This isn’t a Mets-related story, but I think it’s worth mentioning. After attempting to make a comeback to the Bigs and suffering major setbacks in the Minor Leagues, the San Diego Padres will release Mark Prior at some point this weekend, according to MLB.com. He never played for the Mets, but he was one of […]

The 2009 trade deadline has come and gone and once again Omar Minaya has stood pat and held onto all of his players. It’s been three years since the last time the Mets made a big trade at the deadline. Turning back the clock, Omar Minaya woke up in a GM’s worst nightmare scenario. During […]

Keith Hernandez says it all the time. Sometimes you just have to tip your hat to the other team, and in this case the other team is the Philadelphia Phillies. They made a brilliant off season move by replacing longtime Phillie and Mets nemesis Pat Burrell, with free agent outfielder Raul Ibanez who has been nothing […]

Omar Minaya Is A Dead Man Walking

An article by posted on August 1, 2009 0 Comments

As the Mets lost the opener to Arizona 3-2, I couldn’t help but wonder what lies ahead for these Mets. We’re back to the same team that struggles to score runs, and the team that won five straight not so long ago, may have just been a blip on the radar. Omar Minaya says there was […]
