And Now A Word From Our Center Fielder

An article by posted on May 19, 2008

He teases us with his speed, dazzles us with his defense, and sometimes astounds us with his power this season. And he hasn’t even gotten warmed up yet. Carlos Beltran’s recovery from off-season knee surgery hasn’t gone as quickly as all of us have hoped, but signs of his return to form are suddenly evident. […]

An article by posted on May 17, 2008

Welcome back to the third installment of Hot or Not, the only list where you want to be in the hot seat. This week, I’ve had to consider many things besides from a player’s performance; otherwise the whole team would be Cold As Ice. Hot as FireMike Pelfrey: El Duque can take as long as […]

A Change Is Gonna Come

An article by posted on May 16, 2008

I’m not going to try and write another blog about the struggles of the Mets. Keeping track of the wins and losses on my pocket schedule is painful enough. Clearly, something is "up" because of oh-too-familiar win one, lose one pattern of this entire month. I’m not going to go on about Mike Pelfrey’s gem […]

Mets Need To Get Subway Serious Now!

An article by posted on May 16, 2008

The Mets are floundering. They are a team that intimidates nobody. They are laughed at, joked about, pushed around, and chanted at by even the worst teams in the league. How can they possibly believe they can win a division title under these circumstances?   Yesterday, another great pitching performance was squandered and wasted by […]

Willie Should Concentrate On Winning Today Not Tomorrow

An article by posted on May 15, 2008

Willie has it all wrong… He needs to wake up and smell the coffee… Yesterday, his excuse for bringing in Aaron Heilman, a move that cost the Mets a win, was that he wanted to get a couple of innings out of him, so the bullpen would be rested for the weekend. What’s he thinking? […]

Let’s Go, Metsies, Let’s Go! (clap, clap)

An article by posted on May 14, 2008

What the hell was with the Nationals Monday night, specifically, Elijah Dukes and Lenny Harris?  It was like little league out there. A last place team chanting in the dugout, during a meaningless game, as each player stepped into the batter’s box.  Were they that bored? That cold?  Figueroa had the perfect response, if you […]
