An article by posted on December 19, 2007

It has already begun. With the speculation that the Oakland A’s may look to trade Joe Blanton, the rumors connecting him to the Mets have already begun. Mind you, there is nothing but the flimsiest of speculation to these rumors and yet some sites are running with it as if it’s a revelation from above. I […]

Fade To Black…

An article by posted on December 17, 2007

It’s a Little League parents worst nightmare. Their child being hurt during a game that is…  Torn between jumping the fence to coddle their precious child, or let them take their lumps and learn to pick themselves back up.  Within an instant a wild pitch hitting them in the back, an outfield collision or even […]

We Have the Right to Question Omar Minaya

An article by posted on December 15, 2007

It is probably very hard…wait…it is very hard to be Omar Minaya right now. But watching the Diamondbacks aquire Dan Haren from the Athletics and then trade Jose Valverde to the Astros makes me wonder: what is Omar doing? Or not doing? We could have had Dan Haren, or at the very least Joe Blanton. And […]

The Mets Need A Lot To Go Right For Them In 2008

An article by posted on December 15, 2007

It’s time to face the facts. The Mets are not going to land themselves a starter who is not named Livan Hernandez or Bartolo Colon. After seeing what the Detroit Tigers gave up for Dontrelle Willis, and even worse, what the Arizona Diamondbacks gave up for Dan Haren, I am completely convinced that the Mets not only […]

D-Backs Get Dan Haren In Huge 8-Player Trade

An article by posted on December 14, 2007

Scratch off another would-be starter off the Mets Wish List, as Dan Haren is on his way to pitch for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-Backs had all the prospects the Oakland A’s wanted and they had no problem moving five of their top ten prospects to get the deal done. According to MLB.com, the Diamondbacks get RHP Dan […]

Thoughts on the Offseason…..

An article by posted on December 14, 2007

The Mets, right now, are in a holding pattern. Nothing has happened. Nothing. If something had happened, I’d be writing about that instead. So, as a little treat, I have compiled my thoughts of this off season and hopefully, you will find it funny. -I’m really gonna miss Lastings Milledge and Paul Lo Duca. It […]

Weighing In On The Report, And Then Some

An article by posted on December 13, 2007

After taking some time to sift through the enormous amount of data in the Mitchell Report, I wanted to weigh in on it from a Mets fan’s perspective and also from a baseball fan’s point of view. From what I could see after sorting through the list of players, I was happy to find that […]

The Mets Are In It For The Now

An article by posted on December 13, 2007

With the Christmas holiday mere days away, the Mets remain without the frontline starting pitcher they so desperately require. Frustration is beginning to sink deep within all of the Amazin’s faithful followers. Without a defined ace toeing the rubber, or one who has the potential to become just that, the Mets outlook for 2008 is […]

Wednesday’s Hot Stove Roundup

An article by posted on December 12, 2007

Today was kind of a busy day for some teams as the rest of MLB brace themselves for the Mitchell Report which is expected to be released sometime tomorrow. I found it very ironic that the Orioles finally traded Miguel Tejada on the eve of the report’s release date. Tejada’s name has been mentioned on […]

Big House Baseball League All –Stars

An article by posted on December 11, 2007

During my daily boredom induced web surfing, I came across yet another reason why being a Mets fan can sometimes be painful. As we all know, Michael Vick has just been sentenced to 23 months in prison. In “celebration” of that, Sports Illustrated (si.com) has put together a photo gallery of famous athletes who have […]
