“Mayday, Mayday”, Billy Wagner Sounds The Alarm

An article by posted on May 1, 2008

All it took was 1 2/3 innings yesterday, for Oliver Perez to sink the Mets against the punchless Pirates. It was the Mets who looked like a ship of fools and not the Pirates who are the worst team in the league. It seems like every time Perez takes the mound he demoralizes his team by his […]

Mets Win the Wright Way

An article by posted on April 30, 2008

Let me start out by saying “kudos” to the fans at Shea last night for not booing Carlos Delgado.  It’s time we put this whole thing behind us, once and for all, and just root, root, root for the home team!  And just to set the record straight, I never said booing was nice.  I […]

Mets Fans Have Destroyed Their Homefield Advantage

An article by posted on April 29, 2008

Yes, it’s true and it pains me to say it. We have created such a feeling of hostility in our own home park that it has permeated into the minds of the players and turned our Mets fan base into a laughing stock throughout all of sports. We have made it a burden for the […]

The Final Curtain on the Mets

An article by posted on April 28, 2008

I know it’s not my night, but since we have been rained out, what the heck… What is the problem? So Delgado didn’t give us a curtain call after his second homerun in yesterday’s win against the Braves. Boo-hoo. I mean a curtain call is nice and all, but there is no right or wrong […]

Screw The Curtain Calls, Gimme More Two Homer Games

An article by posted on April 28, 2008

What in the world is all this fuss about curtain calls?? Like I said last night, who cares? As far as I’m concerned the only issue is that Carlos Delgado hit two homeruns and even won a Metsy for crying out loud… Do we have to make everything so negative all the time… even when […]

And The “Metsy” Goes To…

An article by posted on April 28, 2008

A happy Monday morning indeed Met-heads!   This makes two weekends in a row that I was able to lay my head down at night peacefully, knowing the Mets had won. What makes this victory even sweeter is the fact it came at the expense of John Smoltz and the hated Braves. I always cringe when I […]

Delgado Slams Two Homers, Then Slams The Crowd

An article by posted on April 27, 2008

Wow, what a way to make a statement. Today’s big win over John Smoltz and the Braves would not have been possible if not for the efforts of first baseman Carlos Delgado. Delgado launched a pair of homeruns today and we’re talking huge blasts, not the the garden variety homers the Mets have been hitting […]

If At First You Don’t Succeed… You Must Be Carlos Delgado

An article by posted on April 26, 2008

They say that money can’t buy happiness, but in the case of Carlos Delgado it’s even worse than that. The $16 million dollars he is being paid, actually $20 million with the option included, makes Carlos Delgado the highest paid player on the New York Mets and first base overall. Yes, even more than Albert […]

Another Grand Performance From Willie’s Guys

An article by posted on April 25, 2008

"He’s my guy. I stick with my guys." I’m sure there’s no need for me to reveal the source of that quote. After all we’ve been hearing those same words day after day for over a year now. You can’t fault a manager for showing confidence in his players, but at some point you have […]

Please Don’t Tell Me This Is As Good As It Gets!

An article by posted on April 24, 2008

The next time you see Billy Wagner walk to the mound in the ninth inning, you might be seeing history in the making… Well, maybe Mets history… Or maybe not… You see, Billy Wagner has started this season by pitching eight straight no-hit innings. Gulp… That’s right, he’s just three outs a way from a No-Hitter! Well at least the […]
