I know that we’re only 12 games into the season.  I know that today’s date is April 21, 2009 and “it’s only April.”  I know that there are 150 games left to play before the season ends on Sunday, October 4, 2009 against the Houston Astros at Citi Field.  I also know so far this […]

Relax. Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day.

An article by posted on April 20, 2009 0 Comments

We all need to take a deep breath, relax and step back for a moment. The season is two weeks old and already it appears many fans have given up on our Mets. Yes, this season has been frustrating so far. Yes, this team has failed to get the big hit when needed. We have […]

What The Heck Was That All About?

An article by posted on April 20, 2009 0 Comments

Talk about your classic head scratchers. I would have loved to be a fly in the room when Omar and his brain-trust made the decision to DFA Darren O’Day, promote Nelson Figueroa, DFA Figueroa 18 hours later and promote Casey Fossum. I bet the conversation went just like this… Omar: Have a seat fellas, we […]

Pessimistic, Bitter, or Both?

My father was asking me if I was going to visit the new Yankee Stadium. I told him I would not pay to set foot in there. I would only go if I got a free ticket. I refuse to give them my money. My fathers’ response? “You’re still bitter from 2000.” Mind you, he […]

Mets Lose To Brewers 4-2, DFA Figueroa

An article by posted on April 19, 2009 0 Comments

I guess a three game sweep was too much to ask for as the Mets wasted plenty of scoring opportunities and fell to the Brewers 4-2. The problem with this loss is that the Mets squandered a gutsy start by Nelson Figueroa who did all he could manage to keep the Mets in the game […]

Attempted Murderers Row

An article by posted on April 19, 2009 0 Comments

What a horrible game!  Nine men left in scoring position. Situational hitting hovering at or about zero. David Wright, please return to the Mets!  I’m at a loss. Brewers don’t have a good pitching staff, and they made us look terrible. Whenever something good started happening, such as a leadoff double or some such, we’d […]

A MetsWrighter’s View of Citi Field

Dwight Gooden may not have been at Citi Field to see his nephew hit his 500th career homerun, but I was. I have been to my share of Mets games over the years, but I have never witnessed a player reaching a momentous milestone like that. It was amazing! And the ironic part is, if […]

Game Recap: Mets Shutout Brewers 1-0

An article by posted on April 18, 2009 0 Comments

The game started out as a classic pitchers duel with both Johan Santana and Yovani Gallardo missing bats and chalking up the zeros. Both the Brewers and Mets were getting baserunners in the early going, but each team’s ace was in full control on this Saturday afternoon, where there was plenty of sunshine, hot dogs, […]

Today Falls Under a Win is a Win

Who saw this one? I didn’t. I live in Chicago. Lucky me, I get the blackout on Saturday afternoons. I spent a chunk of the afternoon hitting refresh. Obviously, the line on Johan speaks for itself. Simply Amazing. Seaver, Gooden, and and Santana. Unequivocally, the greatest three Mets pitchers of all time. What that man […]

Francesa Says Mets Are More Ignorant Than He Thought

An article by posted on April 18, 2009 0 Comments

During one of his legendary tirades, Mike Francesa lashed out at Omar Minaya and the Mets ownership during Friday’s show. Regarding Omar Minaya and the Wilpons he said: “Either they are a lot more ignorant than I thought, or they just don’t really care about winning. It can’t possibly be anything else. They just are plain […]
