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. Does a team that finishes the season in such disappointment two years running deserve to […]

Church’s Future

An article by posted on October 9, 2008

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. Recently, though, I’ve seen people list Ryan […]

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 […]

Mission (Not) Accomplished

An article by posted on October 6, 2008

Maybe I’m mistaken but when we made a managerial change on June 17, I thought the purpose was to get us into the Post-Season. When Omar Minaya fired Willie Randolph in the early morning hours and replaced him with bench coach Jerry Manuel, I, along with most Mets fans, were hoping for the best. We […]

Trading Wright is the Wrong Move

An article by posted on October 4, 2008

Earlier this week, Mike Francesa suggested trading David Wright because he is nowhere to be found in pressure games. This idea to me is laughable, mainly because 25-year-old Gold Glove 3rd baseman who average 29 homers and 114 RBI and hit over .300 in their first four seasons grow on trees. Don’t we wish? So […]
