I’ve seen enough of Damion Easley, Fernando Tatis and Marlon Anderson before he got injured, to know that we can and should do better than Carlos Delgado at first base. His slump is not technically a slump. Slumps don’t last two years. Delgado is in steep decline and the sooner the Mets realize it, the […]

An article by posted on May 29, 2008

One word describes last night – AMAZING!!  What we witnessed last night, my friends, is reminiscent of 2006 – the Team, the Time, the Mets!  They did everything right – from quality pitching, aggressive base running, timely hitting and passionate energy.  Tears filled my eyes as the team greeted Beltran at home plate, as he […]

A MetsWrighter’s View

An article by posted on May 28, 2008

Please be advised that this blog was compiled yesterday, before the Mets beat the Marlins 5-3 at Shea.  If in fact this team is beginning to turn it around, this will all seem a little less meaningful.  They say, “No news is good news.”  In the Mets case, no news is, well, no news.  Same […]

I’m Not Ready To Say “Wait ‘Till Next Year”

An article by posted on May 26, 2008

I am truly at a loss for words today concerning the Mets. Normally on Mondays I give out the “Monday Morning Metsy” Award to the Mets player who has exemplified great play for the past week. For this Monday, I can find none who deserve ANY accolades save Nick Evans, and he hasn’t even been […]
