Mike Pelfrey Shuts Up All The Doubters

An article by posted on July 9, 2008

Where are all the Mets fans who couldn’t wait to unload Mike Pelfrey in the off season? I’ll tell you where they are… scratching their heads and staring at their TV’s every time he takes the mound and exclaiming "OMG, I’m so glad Omar didn’t trade him!" Don’t feel so bad, I used to be […]

Forget Lincecum, Beltran Belts Homerun Number 250

An article by posted on July 9, 2008

It may not have been the shot heard round’ the world, but it certainly was the shot heard round’ the bay. Last night, with arguably the best pitcher in the National League on the mound in Tim Lincecum, the Mets made short order of him in the first inning on this Carlos Beltran blast. It […]

An article by posted on July 9, 2008

You want to talk about fight… how about those Phightin’ Phillies?? Sure they lost last night… and sure they have seen their lead shring from 5 1/2 games to just 1 1/1 games… and sure they lost 3 out of 4 games to the Mighty Mets… but nobody can accuse them of not having any […]

You’re Once… Twice… Three Times A Leader

An article by posted on July 8, 2008

If leadership means getting yourself thrown out of a game for arguing with an umpire, then we got ourselves one heck of a leader at the helm of the Mets. What Willie Randolph couldn’t do in three-plus years, Jerry Manuel has already done three times and in just under a month. For years many Mets fans felt […]

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 […]
