Is It Really About Re-Building?

An article by posted on July 19, 2009 0 Comments

I don’t know. To me, when I hear the word ‘rebuild’, I think of a team like the Washington Nationals or Pittsburgh Pirates, who have had little or no superstars in recent years, and whose only direction is up. Our New York Mets are far from the Nationals and Pirates, and far from the basement in their division. […]

Mets Should DFA Redding and Promote Jon Niese

For the life of me, I just can’t ever figure this team out sometimes. Here we are hanging on the edge of a cliff and praying that we don’t fall into complete obscurity, and yet with help just a phone call away, the Mets refuse to dial 911. During the All Star break, I blogged […]

It’s Time To Show Omar The Door

An article by posted on July 19, 2009 0 Comments

To sell, or not to sell. That is the question. However, the answer is not as easy as you might think. If the Mets become sellers, then Omar Minaya will be rubber stamping this season which was engineered by him, as a failure. If the Mets become buyers, and they still don’t make it, then […]

Mets Are Becoming The Butt Of ESPN’s Jokes

An article by posted on July 18, 2009 0 Comments

Has anyone been watching SportsCenter recently?  I happened to be watching this morning and noticed another Not Top 10 list.  Immediately, I remembered the recent Not Top 10 where they focused on the Mets.  Apparently, the Mets’ follies had become fodder for jokes in Bristol.  The SportsCenter crew couldn’t contain themselves as they were running […]

Mets Chop Braves 5-1 Behind Santana’s Smooth Effort

An article by posted on July 18, 2009 0 Comments

The fact that Johan Santana won a game after the All-Star Break was nothing new.  After all, he’s now 59-17 in his career after the All-Star Break and 9-0 with the Mets.  The only thing new about it was the team he defeated. Santana pitched seven shutout innings and his teammates provided him with all […]

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 […]

Mets Shutout Again, Fall To Braves 11-0

An article by posted on July 17, 2009 0 Comments

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?

An article by posted on July 17, 2009 0 Comments

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?

An article by posted on July 17, 2009 0 Comments

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

An article by posted on July 17, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]
