There Will Be No Awards To Remind Us Of 2007

An article by posted on October 22, 2007

It was a strange season for the New York Mets in 2007… When the season first started you almost had a sense that the Mets were going to haul in a ton of awards by the time the season was over… We all thought we had a Batting Title in the bag… At the end […]

Some Off Season Musings

An article by posted on October 19, 2007

Since the Mets are no longer in the hunt for anything but a good golf course or restaurant this postseason (OUCH!), Mets related topics to write about are becoming scarce. In light of this situation I figured I would just muse about several topics in Major League baseball. First off the bat is one of […]

Your Mets Hot Stove Season Has Come – Part 3 of 3

An article by posted on October 18, 2007

This week as I conclude this short series I wanted to focus on the pitching. This is probably the one area that Omar Minaya will have to concentrate most of his efforts this off-season. The Mets starting pitching and bullpen both failed to meet expectations in 2007 and barring some significant changes, it may be […]

Mailbag: Will The Mets Win A Division In 2008?

An article by posted on October 13, 2007

Will the Mets still have basically the same five guys in the rotation in 2008 with Pedro essentially replacing Glavine at number one? Will that be enough to win a division? It’s very difficult to say whether a rotation of 1. Pedro Martinez, 2. Orlando Hernandez, 3. John Maine, 4. Oliver Perez, 5. Mike Pelfrey would […]

A Postseason Word of Thanks

An article by posted on October 13, 2007

Now that it has been two weeks since the Mets have been *gulp* eliminated from playoff contention and the playoffs are well underway, I feel able to blog with confidence again. As a NY resident for the better part of 30 years, I know that about this time the cold is slowly creeping from bitter […]

A Very Rude Awakening…

An article by posted on October 12, 2007

I must say that I was disgusted this morning by an article I read in Newsday. It was written by Wallace Matthews, who decided to throw what little professionalism he had as a writer, out with the trash last night. I still can’t believe that a solid newspaper like Newsday allowed such a hate-filled tirade against […]

Jose Reyes Still Ranks High With Most NL Managers

An article by posted on October 12, 2007

The Mets recently granted free agency to pitcher Jon Adkins, who was one of the players that we received when we traded Royce Ring and Heath Bell to the San Diego Padres. Adkins wasn’t exactly terrible for New Orleans and posted a 3.99 ERA in 48 games, while posting a 2-4 record with 5 saves. The other […]

Broadway Is Dark Tonight…

An article by posted on October 9, 2007

Broadway is dark tonight, and will remain that way for the rest of the fall season. Instead, the center stage spotlight will brightly shimmer upon some improbable settings. As the Yankees were eliminated from postseason play last night by the Cleveland Indians, the city’s season officially came to an end. While there will be no […]

Luck Be A Mets Fan Tonight

An article by posted on October 9, 2007

As I reflect on a season that was simply disappointing, I begin to ponder what a World Champion really is.  The best in the game?  Not necessarily.  That’s not to say that the best team never wins it all, or that the team that does win it all doesn’t deserve to, but it is usually […]

Misery Loves Company

An article by posted on October 9, 2007

Wow, I never really understood what that meant until last night when Joe Borowski set down the Yankees and the Cleveland Indians won the ALDS in dominating fashion. Watching the Yankees crash and burn in the ALDS for the third straight season, was like being wrapped in a warm comforter on a cold winter’s day. It […]
