The Not-Ready-For-Prime-Time Players

An article by posted on April 21, 2009 0 Comments

Losing 6-4 to the Cards isn’t the story. It’s how the Mets lost that’s darkening every fans mood. How can so much badly played baseball be packed into 9 innings! Perez returned to his bad self. Four decent innings, and that’s all she wrote. Loss of control, and then batting practice. Yadier owns us. We […]

Why Are The Mets Making Life Miserable For Church?

An article by posted on April 21, 2009 0 Comments

I think everyone understands what signing Gary Sheffield was going to mean for Ryan Church. Obviously based on how much Sheffield has accomplished in his career, we all knew it would lead to some complications in terms of finding playing time for everyone. That said, it was still tough to see one of our hottest […]

Forget LOB, Where’s The Stolen Bases?

An article by posted on April 21, 2009 0 Comments

For the last three seasons we’ve been spoiled by the speed of Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and David Wright. The Mets were among the league leaders each season in stolen bases, and speed was a big part of our game. But so far this season, the team’s stolen bases are down and not where we […]

The NY Post is reporting that what began early yesterday morning after George Willis of the NY Post outed the Mets for insulting our beloved Doctor K, has ended in a complete about-face by the New York Mets. It all started when George Willis’ column in yesterday’s Post reported that the Mets planned to erase […]

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 […]
