A Pair Of Aces And Manny Too

An article by posted on October 18, 2008

Just Show Me The Money! For those of you who still have a soft spot for Manny Ramirez and yearn for Omar Minaya to land talented and controversial outfielder, here is what he had to say to reporters as he left the Los Angeles Dodger’s clubhouse for what could be the last time. “I’m not […]

It Can Only Get Better From Here

An article by posted on October 17, 2008

Watching our arch rivals, the Philadelphia Phillies, get to the World Series guaranteed that this off-season is going to be particularly longer (and particularly more painful) than usual. But lets face it: the Phillies deserve it. They played with heart while we played like we were dead. Their offense came through in the clutch and […]

Waiting For Next Year… And It’s Alright

An article by posted on October 14, 2008

The 2008 Mets went quietly into the night. There was no fanfare, no curtain calls. The final chants ever shouted at Shea of Lets Go Mets were more out of desperation than of hope. As we reached into our gut one final time, we were dreaming of summoning the ghosts of rallies past. That did […]

The Mets Are Not Trading Carlos Beltran

An article by posted on October 11, 2008

One of things I love most about the Hot Stove season is all the interesting trade rumors that we hear from the teams and the press that follows them. That being said, one of the drawbacks is all of the false claims and rumors that are not based on any legitimate information. In the last […]

Who Should The Mets Deem Untouchable?

An article by posted on October 10, 2008

You hear the word untouchable bandied about quite often in Mets circles. I’ve always felt that the Mets have always used the term all too often in years past and that in most cases it came back to haunt them.

Since the season ended, we’re all looking at the changes the Mets need to make, and most of us have a couple players at the top of their list of people they’d like to see elsewhere.  Notably, the majority of the bullpen and Luis Castillo tops most lists.

What If We End Up Not Getting K-Rod or Fuentes?

An article by posted on October 9, 2008

If it’s one thing we can all agree on, it is that the top two closers on the free agent market are Brian Fuentes, formerly of the Colorado Rockies, and Frankie Rodriguez who we all know as K-Rod. I guess we are in agreement that the Mets desperately need a closer too. When it comes […]
