It’s Feast or Famine for These Mets

An article by posted on May 7, 2008

I know some of my fellow bloggers already mentioned this, but it bears repeating: One day the Mets can’t hit their way out of a paper bag, the next day they can break through a ton of bricks! Keep in mind that since I was at work today, I did not see the game. I […]

Wasted Away Again In Margaritaville

An article by posted on May 7, 2008

Ahh the smell of green grass, beautiful palm trees, tropical drinks and sushi… that is what baseball is all about. At least it is in Los Angeles. (freaking wierdos!) Our New York Mets are in a virtual paradise, far away from the hostile crowds and boo birds they must deal with at home games. Ahh… this is the […]

An article by posted on May 5, 2008

Greetings and salutations my fellow Met-heads! Once again we had a nice finish to the weekend with the Mets beating the D-backs in 2 out of 3 games in the desert. Even if Johan didn’t get the victory, we can still take away the fact he out dueled Danny Haren. Now on to Dodger Stadium […]

Mets April Report Cards Are In

An article by posted on May 5, 2008

Mets Merized – Joe D.It’s been an inconsistent and uneven start so far for the New York Mets. While many expected the team to explode out of the gate they instead continue to churn along and stay at or close to the top of the standings. We have seen a few stinkers in the early going, but the […]

Mets Front Office Says The Honeymoon Is Over

An article by posted on May 4, 2008

Steve Popper of The Record had some interesting things to say in one of his recent articles regarding Willie Randolph and the Mets. The one that caught my attention was a quote where he cites fellow writer Bob Klapisch… Willie Randolph can’t consider a just-above-.500 record lucky. One person in the higher echelon of the franchise […]

Keep Willie Randolph, Fire Rick Peterson

An article by posted on May 3, 2008

While many Mets fans are already calling for Willie Randolph’s head, don’t you think if anyone should be shown the door that it should be Rick Peterson and not Willie? It’s so easy to hang everything on Willie, but the fact of the matter is that he never got a fair shake. Among many other […]

Church Back In The Two Spot – It’s About Time!

An article by posted on May 2, 2008

I just took a look at tonight’s lineup card and I must say that I’m lovin’ what I see… Ryan Church is back in the number two spot of the lineup and Moises Alou makes his long awaited return batting behind Carlos Beltran in the number five spot. This is a lineup with some teeth […]

Hey Yankee Fans — How Do You Feel About Philip Hughes Now?

An article by posted on May 2, 2008

One of the few brighter spots in the Mets rotation this April has been Mike Pelfrey. Okay, so he’s not Johan Santana but he is 2-1 with a 4.43 ERA (and that’s only because of his last start against Atlanta, he let off 5 runs in 5.1 innings for those keeping score at home). We […]
