After last weeks four game losing streak I started to observe our own chat room as well as other Met chat rooms and MLB blogs and some are blaming Omar Minaya for the Mets miserable start this year.  He didn’t sign the big free agents that were available  this past off-season.  Last year he signed […]

I polled my Twitter followers tonight and asked the following question… Should Omir Santos replace Ramon Castro as the primary backup when Brian Schneider is activated from the DL on Friday? mattstedjan@metsmerized Yes!… and give him the chance at first string. CRSLINY@MetsMerized I LIKE THIS KID, AND I THINK HE MAY BE IN OUR FUTURE, I […]

Josh from Jorge Says No, emailed me a great video of the 1969 Mets who made an appearance on the Ed Sullivan show shortly after they won the World Series. Check out how young Tom Seaver looks, and Nolan Ryan too. Wayne Garrett looks just like Richie Cunningham from Happy Days. Enjoy…

I’m finding some interesting reads this morning from some who are concerned about David Wright’s lack of production this month. Newsday narrows it down for us… After hitting .342 (13-for-38) in his first 10 games, Wright is hitting .188 (6-for-32) in his last eight to drop his average to .271. He has only six RBIs, […]

I watched a Mets game the other day and to say we looked terrible and inept would be an understatement. The opposing team scored 2 in the top of the first and 2 more in the second. There was a hit batsmen, an error, a wild pitch and a couple of walks thrown in for […]

Game Summary The Mets (8-10) were unable to complete a sweep of the Washington Nationals (4-13) thanks to another dismal performance lefthander Olive Perez. Jordan Zimmermann stymied the Mets offense as they were literally handcuffed this afternoon and unable to mount any credible rally. Mets Pitching What can I say about Oliver Perez that you haven’t already […]

The Sky Could Be Falling

Someone should have told the Mets they didn’t have this Sunday off. They sure did play as if today was not a regularly scheduled game. Again, we faced a rookie, and again he (Zimmermann) made us look very bad. Incidentally, our third Sunday in a row has been spoiled. I’ll confess that I stopped watching […]
