An article by posted on June 2, 2009 0 Comments

The Morning Grind is the place for Mets fans to sound off on anything and everything! An open thread for ranting and raving about the Mets, completely raw and uncensored! That eighth inning was hard to watch last night. I think we have our new Heilman… or Mota… or you get the idea… After a bad outing […]

I’m trying to figure out who or what sucks the most tonight in the wake of a disgusting 8-5 loss to the miserable Bucs. Let’s see there’s blowing a five-run lead, not getting more than a hit after the third, and J.J. Putz. I think I’ll go with Putz as sucking the most out there […]

The Mets open up a four game series tonight with the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park. As a fan I really like the look PNC Park has, I just wish there were more fans in th seats. This is by no means a knock on Pirates fans. Its been 16 years since the Bucks have […]

Colin Stephenson of the Star Ledger, wrote an interesting article focusing on yesterday’s eight inning when Jerry Manuel yanked J.J. Putz and replaced him with Bobby Parnell. He writes, Did Manuel have any hesitation to bring in the rookie to relieve the veteran, former closer Putz? “I brought him in, didn’t I?” Manuel snapped when […]

Why The Mets?

An article by posted on June 1, 2009 0 Comments

What is it exactly that makes the Mets ‘the Mets’? Why do we root for this team with unending loyalty and a lifelong commitment? It can’t be for our string of championships. We have won just twice in almost five decades, our previous one coming a generation ago. A growing number of fans are too […]

The Mets Were At Their Best In May… Really!

An article by posted on June 1, 2009 0 Comments

This about all of the highs and lows of the last month… The month of May started out with Oliver Perez losing his rotation spot, going to the bullpen, and ending up on the DL with a bum knee. All of our starters except for Johan Santana, had ERA’s that were 5.50 or higher, and […]

Credit Manuel For Making The Tough Decision On Sunday

I’ve been giving Jerry Manuel a lot of heat for his in-game strategy lately. Most recently, on Saturday I felt he put the Mets into a poor position to win the game when he rested most of his regulars. That said, I need to give him his due for taking out J.J. Putz in the […]

Mets Can’t Afford A June Swoon

As the calendar changes from May to June, the Mets find themselves a half game behind the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League East.  They have managed to stay at or near the top of the division despite the fact that the Mets have become the walking wounded.  In 2006, it was the month of […]
