These Mets Are Not “Loveable Losers”

An article by posted on June 28, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets go into tonight’s nationally broadcast game having already lost the season series to the Yankees. With Livan Hernandez taking on Chien-Ming Wang, we should have a chance. Key word: should. With the recent luck of this team, we will probably embarrass ourselves while making Wang look like Cy Young. The Mets are coasting […]

Is It Check-Out Time For Hojo?

I cant recall a season where our Mets have been so decimated by injuries. I know that we should actually consider ourselves lucky in many ways. We’ve last 40% of our starting staff along with our newly acquired set-up man. David Wright has been forced into the role of trying to carry this entire team […]

It was a tough game to watch tonight at Citi Field, as the Mets were shutout by the Yankees 5-0. Alex Cora’s single in the sixth inning was the only hit the Mets had tonight, as the Yankees came so close to pitching the first no-hitter at Citi Field… For the second day in a row! What I […]

Recently, my colleague Gregg (Gregga) posted a fine piece on Ralph Kiner.  In it, he mentioned how Mr. Kiner still provides excellent insight and colorful stories about players past and present, despite being a young man of 86 years of age.  Seeing Mr. Kiner on SNY this past Thursday brought back memories of my youth.  […]

A Closer Look At David Wright

An article by posted on June 27, 2009 0 Comments

Our All-Star third baseman, David Wright, is in the middle of the weirdest offensive year of his life. I think it’s actually cause for worry. David Wright is batting .351 and he’s leading the NL in batting, and I won’t dispute that he’s been on base more than he ever has. However, I became very […]

I Have A Couple Of Axes To Grind This Morning

In what turned out to be the one and only opportunity for the Mets to breakthrough and rough up C.C. Sabathia, the Mets blew a golden opportunity. Actually, let me clarify that and say Jerry Manuel blew a golden opportunity. In the fifth inning, after Gary Sheffield broke up Sabathia’s perfect game with a lead-off solo […]

These days the Mets are a bit of mess as an organization.  There is almost 70 million dollars sitting on the disabled list, the roster is made up of guys who should be in the minor leagues or at best they are back up guys, the farm system has suffered some blows this past week […]

What A Train Wreck This Subway Series Has Been At Citi

An article by posted on June 27, 2009 0 Comments

So far the Subway Series has been a train wreck for the Mets offense. Imagine if Alex Cora had continued his anemic ways against A.J. Burnett (where did he get that shirt, from Greg Anthony?) and not snapped an 0-21 lifetime with a slap single? We would have been lamenting about getting no-hit by the […]

09′ Mets – Poetry In Motion

An article by posted on June 26, 2009 0 Comments

Baseball is a romantic sport because one moment it snaps your heart in two, the next aflutter with hope. Take what has transpired in Met land as a prime example: Injuries seemingly have sabotaged a season, leaving fans thinking of changes and lamenting of what might have been. Then the St. Louis Cardinals, the former […]
