It’s Time For SNY To Do Something About Joe Benigno

An article by posted on July 8, 2008

SNY is driving me insane with their Anti-Mets coverage. They continue to pick apart the team like vultures devouring the dead carcass of an animal. They fill their air time with amateurs that have no business being in front of a camera or given a microphone. For months now, I have been lamenting about how […]

Jose Reyes Is The Real All-Star – The Players Snubbed Him

An article by posted on July 7, 2008

Maybe it was for all the homerun celebrations and the choreographed high fives. Maybe it was for all the times he rattled a pitcher with a fake steal attempt and forced a balk. Maybe it was all that and more, but there’s no mistaking the fact that the players snubbed Jose Reyes and that is […]

Oliver Perez Has Put The Mets In A Better Position

An article by posted on July 7, 2008

Oliver Perez has been the poster child of the Mets woes so far this season. His inconsistency has been a source of frustration, and he has been blamed for the Mets’ inability to put together a solid win streak. His step backward after last year’s 15 win season may have been the straw that broke Rick Peterson’s back […]

The Most Important Player On Our Team

An article by posted on July 6, 2008

In one of my recent blogs, I defended Carlos Delgado. Many fans have blamed the first baseman as the primary reason for our struggles and inconsistent play this entire season. Baseball is a team sport. The 2008 Mets will either succeed or fail as a team. However, that being said, there is one player who […]

Carlos Beltran To Start Batting Second

An article by posted on July 6, 2008

What a nice bounce-back effort by the Mets last night as they defeated the Phillies 9-4. The game may have been a springboard to some upcoming changes in the Mets lineup starting with a new look in the top of the order. Last night during our Gameday Live open thread, our topic of discussion was […]

The Hot and The (Mostly) Not

An article by posted on July 5, 2008

Welcome to another installment of Hot or Not. If you would have asked me last week, I would have said our most frustrating loss was the 11-0 blowout to Seattle. This morning, I would say yesterday’s loss to the Phillies would go down as our most frustrating. Since Willie Randolph left, we’ve moved up to […]

Manuel: “He Was Stressed” – Santana: “I Was Fine”

An article by posted on July 5, 2008

As I look back at last night’s gut-wrenching loss, I felt the game hinged on the decision to pull Johan Santana after only 95 pitches. Here we go with the damn pitch counts again. I thought this wouldn’t be such a big issue after firing Rick Peterson… Anyhow, I digress… In the post game, Jerry […]

Hopefully, No Phat Lady This Weekend

An article by posted on July 4, 2008

Mets fans all over have been holding their breath for the past month or so as we approach this weekend’s four-game series versus our division rivals, the <insert expletive> Phillies. Since our change in management in mid-June, the Mets have a record of 7-8, a coin flip out of context. With context, though, we see […]

In a New York Post exclusive Bart Hubbuch reports the follwing… Jose Reyes and Keith Hernandez had to be separated on the Mets charter plane Sunday night after a tense confrontation over Hernandez’s critical comments about the All-Star shortstop.
