Time Is Running Out On Mets Hopes To Improve Team

An article by posted on July 29, 2007

It is looking like there will be no dominanting lead in the NL East in 2007 for the Mets. I thought the Phillies might fall out of it when Chase Utley broke his hand, but then they added Tadahito Iguchi to fill in until he returns. We have a 4 game lead on both the Braves […]

Mets Just Watch As Phillies Land 2B Tadahito Iguchi

An article by posted on July 27, 2007

The Phillies wasted no time in replacing the injured Chase Utley by acquiring second baseman Tadahito Iguchi from the White Sox today for a Class A reliever that was not even one of their top ten prospects. Yes, you read that correctly. Iguchi, 32, was batting .251 with six homers and 31 RBIs in 90 […]

Memo To Omar: Go West, Young Man

An article by posted on July 27, 2007

It don’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the Mets are having some difficulties in a bullpen that was one of the best in baseball last season. About the only pitcher the Mets can count on this season is their closer, Billy Wagner. He has been lights out this season and is clearly […]

We Keep Getting One-Upped – Is it me or does it seem like every time the Yankees bring somebody up from the minors he becomes a star? If it’s not Robinson Cano, it’s Chien Ming Wang, if it’s not Phillip Hughes, it’s Shelley Duncan. If the Mets keep picking ahead of the Yankees in the […]

Mets Making Me Crazy, But Boy Do I Love them!

An article by posted on July 23, 2007

Just thought I would share with you some of the things that really ticked me off while watching/listening to yesterday’s game…  First off, the dumb idea that Ruben Gotay’s throwing error in Saturday’s game may have been caused by the fact that he now knows he is going to be the everyday second baseman, at least for a […]

Mets Fans: This is NO Joking Matter!!

An article by posted on July 17, 2007

I am diligently trying to remain positive. I am trying to see the glass half full, rather than half empty, but the truth is, sometimes I don’t even see the glass! How many scoring opportunities are the Mets going to waste? How many outs can they possibly make with runners in scoring position? How many […]

An article by posted on July 16, 2007

I thought it would be fun this week to sort of “laundry list” the things that I like and dislike about our Mets. I hope you will find some of these items to be very interesting… LIKES: – Paul LoDuca batting second. Come on, Willie, you know he belongs there, why would you put him […]

An article by posted on July 15, 2007

He’s fast, he’s powerful, he can catch, he’s got a shotgun for an arm, and he can hit. Oh yeah, and one more thing… he’s got a whole lotta attitude. Of course I’m talking about our very own Lastings Milledge. I can’t remember another player who was surrounded with as much of a media spotlight even before getting […]

There’s Nothing Classic About The Mid Summer Classic

An article by posted on July 11, 2007

I had planned to write a first half report card for the Mets today, but since there were already about two hundred of them out there from local newspapers, obscure magazines and other dubious Mets blogs, I said the heck with that. I would advise you to skip the newspapers and magazines, and check out the other Mets […]
