Circle Of Love – Duaner, Omar, Jerry

An article by posted on March 11, 2009

Good evening MetsMerizers! I woke up this morning feeling pretty good and the first thing I see on SI.com is an article about how Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya are at odds over Duaner Sanchez being released.   Granted, the article was taken from the NY post so I’m sure it’s a bit exaggerated. The Mets […]

Cory Sullivan Isn’t Messing Around

An article by posted on March 11, 2009

Cory Sullivan has adopted a take no prisoners approach to spring training this season. Even though he signed a major league contract in January to play with the Mets, he is taking no chances. He’s not walking around with a sense of entitlement believing that he doesn’t have to try hard because he is a lock to […]

Jerry Manuel Is So Much More Than A Gangsta

An article by posted on March 10, 2009

There are so many qualities I admire about Jerry Manuel, but the one I admire most is his ability to be forthright and tell it like it is. Unlike past Mets managers, I never get the feeling that Manuel is simply paying us lip service. Yesterday, he weighed in on Pedro Martinez and regardless of […]

Mets Would Be Smart To Cut Duaner Sanchez

An article by posted on March 9, 2009

I think it’s time we stop dreaming about the Duaner Sanchez we saw for three months in 2006, and start accepting the fact that the “pre taxi cab from hell” Sanchez is never coming back. It’s been three years… Lets move on already… The truth is that, he was riding a hot April in 2006 […]

After being knocked around yesterday by the Michigan Wolverines, Tim Redding was quoted by the New York Post as saying, “I showed them last year – that’s why I’m here,” said Redding, who was 10-11 for the Nationals in 2008. “I don’t have anything to prove. I’ve proved to myself I belong on this stage, […]
