Omar Minaya spoke with Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and made some disparaging remarks when talking about the team’s lack of what he calls “an edge”. “We have good guys, solid professionals. There is a smile on David Wright’s face, a smile on Jose Reyes’s face. But there is not an edge to them. Some people […]

Kevin Burkhardt did a great piece on the telecast the other night comparing the new Homerun apple at Citi Field to the old one from Shea.  For those of you who missed it, the old apple is made out of papier mache and weighs practically nothing. It is 12 feet in diameter. The new apple is […]

How much blame does pitching coach Dan Warthen warrant for the lack of early season success from the 2-5 pitchers? A lot? A little? None? If the Mets are going to win this thing, it’s going to take a lot more than Johan Santana and good bullpen. The inability for our starters to pitch deep […]

Not So Random Thoughts – 3 Year Decline

An article by posted on April 30, 2009 0 Comments

As far as the Mets are concerned April is now over and they find themselves in 4th place with a 9-12 record, closer to last place than first. Not exactly the beginning we all envisioned after overhauling our bullpen and adding a few role players to our bench. In 2008 the Mets found themselves at […]

April Booms 1B – It was tough to overlook Carlos Pena and his nine dingers in the AL, but Youkilis is batting .414 with 20 runs scored. Albert Pujols is a god! 2B – Chase Utley put a scare into many of us on draft day, but if you were lucky enough to grab him […]
