Mets Literally Add Insult To Injury

An article by posted on July 18, 2009 0 Comments

For the first time in six years, the Mets began the second half of the season with a loss, falling a season-low 7 1/2 games behind the division leading Phillies. As if that wasn’t enough, last night the Mets were handed their second straight loss after the break, their eighth shutout of the season, and […]

The Mets went down to the Georgia and I guess the devil must have went down with them because that’s how gloomy things have been only two games into their second half of the season. Mike Pelfrey and the Mets handed the Braves an 11-0 win and in the process they fell to 8 1/2 […]

Does Omar’s Message Still Ring True?

As the second half of the season commenced last night, with a loss to a familiar foe (curses Chipper), it’s time for Mets fans to slam the door on the resident traveling salesman, Omar Minaya. (When he rings the bell close the blinds) Because whatever he’s selling; vacuum cleaners, encyclopedias, and most importantly-HOPE, you should […]

Where’s The Beef?

Last night, while watching the Mets go down to the Braves 5-3, Gary Cohen repeated the score as the Mets headed into the ninth inning.  Out of the blue, Keith Hernandez wondered out loud when was the last time the Mets hit a three run homer. Neither he or Gary could remember when, and nor could […]

Unhappy Recaps, Slip-Slidin’ Away

I just read Vac’s Whacks in the Post. Mike Vaccaro is one of my favorite sports journalists, and I almost always incline toward his take on the Mets. This morning he pronounces the death knell for our 2009 season, Mets fans. I know I’m not going to win any friends or have any influence by […]

“Losing is a disease. …as contagious as polio.  Losing is a disease. …as contagious as syphilis.  Losing is a disease. …as contagious as bubonic plague.  Attacking one. … but infecting all.  But curable.” This is some dialogue that I’m sure most of you are familiar with.  It is taken from the movie “The Natural,” one […]

Okay so it’s not really the conference call from hell, but lately doesn’t it seem like Omar’s become the harbinger of death whenever he addresses the media? Today he had another one of those conference calls where he throws an unexpected curveball at us, or was it a spitter? There are many versions out there […]

Ed Note: Paul Zinn originally wrote this game recap on Mets Fans Forever. It was an old nemesis that finally got to the Mets tonight. Chipper Jones had the final go-ahead single as the Braves built a lead, fell behind and then rallied for a 5-3 victory over the Mets tonight at Turner Field as both teams […]

Will The Mets Party Like It’s 1987?

An article by posted on July 16, 2009 0 Comments

Much has been made about the 2009 Mets resembling the 1987 team because of the injuries.  The difference is that this year’s injuries have mainly cost the Mets their offensive spark plugs while the 1987 team lost their starting pitchers to various injuries.  I have done extensive research on the 1987 team and I will […]

How We Saw The First Half

An article by posted on July 16, 2009 0 Comments

Mets First Half MVP Griffin – Gary Sheffield, most homers and has been a huge part of team Russell Z – Johan Santana Satish – David Wright – I was reluctant to choose Wright because it seemed as if he didn’t do much this year, but he does deserve some credit for his new-found ability […]
