An article by posted on June 14, 2008

Welcome Mets fans to another installment of Hot of Not. Not a lot of highlights this week. There have been some, such as Carlos Beltran’s walk off home run but most of the focus this week has been on Willie Randolph’s job and which coaches may go with him. Lets get started: Hot As FireMy […]

Maybe We Are Not That Good

An article by posted on June 14, 2008

It’s time to face some hard, cold facts. This season has, thus far, been a source of huge let downs and disappointments for both Mets fans and players alike. With the exception of an occasional bright spot, 2008 has been an unending deluge of heartache and frustration. Almost since Opening Day it has become clear […]

Don’t Believe Everything You Read – Willie’s Job Is Safe For Now

An article by posted on June 13, 2008

When I woke up this morning and went to work, I read about two dozen posts on the "Willie Watch". I was tempted to write my own post on the matter, but thought otherwise. Throughout the day I wondered if Willie would still be the manager when I got home. And, as you all know by now, […]

Where There’s a Will(ie), There’s a Way

An article by posted on June 13, 2008

I sat there stunned as Billy Wagner blew his 5th save yesterday. I turned the game off after that because I had a feeling of what was going to happen next: enter Heilman, D-Backs win game. Of course, I put none of the blame on Heilman himself because he would not have been pitching had Wags […]

A Game Is Just A Game

An article by posted on June 12, 2008

In the past week, we have seen our beloved Mets return to their losing ways through a mixture of poor relief pitching and lack of clutch production. One week ago, the Mets appeared to have “turned the corner” onto a winning street. Unfortunately, they switched off their GPS device and made another turn.  Last night, […]

Mets Just Keep Wasting Time

An article by posted on June 11, 2008

Better late than never.  And I know it’s not the smartest move to post during a game, but I have to.  All day I had writer’s block – What to write about?  What to talk about?  Well now there’s plenty. What in hell was Willie thinking pulling Pelfrey when he did?  Is one lousy little […]

Enough Is Enough, Bring Up Some Of The Kids

An article by posted on June 11, 2008

I have completely had it with this roster. I am tired of same old tired players playing the same old tired baseball. It’s not that I don’t like guys like Damion Easley, Marlon Anderson, Moises Alou, and all the other tired old veterans, I just think we have too many players like this. I feel like […]

I’m Starting To Feel Sick Now

An article by posted on June 11, 2008

Wow, todays match-up between Brandon Webb (11-2) and Mike Pelfrey (2-6) really shows the disparity between a great team and a team who thinks they’re great. It just seems like the Mets keep finding ways to lose, while teams like the Phillies and the Diamondbacks keep finding ways to win. I really feel bad for […]

With 100 Games Left, The Urgency To Win Has Never Been Greater

An article by posted on June 10, 2008

This morning, John Delcos from the Journal News raised a few questions. Questions that are already on the minds of Mets fans. Questions that only the Mets can really answer. When does it stop being early? When does the disclaimer there’s a lot of season left begin to lose its credibility? I don’t even pretend […]
