Mets Are Paying For A Bullpen That Was Misconceived From The Start

An article by posted on August 31, 2007

When Willie Randolph has Rick Peterson make a call to the bullpen, it has become a vicious game of "Choose Your Poison." It’s like playing "Russian Roulette" with six bullets in your six shooter. "Omar Minaya and Willie Randolph have to assume the blame." That is what Ed Coleman from WFAN had to say. It was […]

What Are Mets Fans Thinking This Morning?

An article by posted on August 31, 2007

I thought I would share some of our recent comments and emails with you. None of it may mean much, but it does show the level of anxiety shared by most Mets fans this morning.  Not a good week so far for our Mets. I am not happy with Willie Randolph for sending Wagner out […]

Just Looking for a Way to Blow Off Some Steam

An article by posted on August 30, 2007

After the Mets (and our) recent nightmare yesterday, many thoughts raced through my mind as to what my blog should be about today. I would really like to stay cheery and positive, but it would just feel like I’m being phony. So I have decided to go the route of a “fake it till you […]

Episode III – The Umpire Strikes Back

An article by posted on August 30, 2007

The "Force" was clearly not with the Mets last night as they lost their third straight game in this series and their fourth straight overall. The umpires have been a big factor in each game, and clearly, the majority of the calls have gone against the Mets. Last night’s call by second base umpire, CB […]

Please Vote: Who Is The Biggest Mets Killer?

An article by posted on August 29, 2007

Here are the results of last weeks poll question which asked the question: Do You Want Guillermo Mota On The Post Season Roster? I’m sure it would surprise nobody that an overwhelming 58% of you said NO WAY. I wonder if any of you voted again after last nights debacle? Only 9% of you said […]

We Still Have Our Ace In The Hole

An article by posted on August 29, 2007

Much has been made this year, (especially by me) of the lack of passion and excitement that has been missing from the Mets this year. With the exception of a Paulie LoDuca blow- up it has been pretty monotonous. It’s hard for me to say that when we have the most exciting player in baseball […]

Martinez Is Doing It The Pedro Way

An article by posted on August 28, 2007

It’s been a long and bumpy ride all season long for the Mets’ long list of would-be number five starters. It started out with so much hope and promise after Mike Pelfrey won the job coming out of Spring Training, but after quickly falling to 0-6, a poorly executed game of musical chairs began. The […]

Does The Expanded Roster Help In A Pennant Race?

An article by posted on August 27, 2007

For the first time in who knows how long, the Mets finally have all their regulars in the lineup at the same time.  With the return of Paul LoDuca and Luis Castillo to the lineup tonight, we get to enjoy the team that Omar Minaya so intelligently put together to win us a World Championship. […]

Braves and Phillies: Down For The Count

An article by posted on August 27, 2007

My, how quickly the tide can turn. Two short weeks ago, I myself stated in my weekly piece here at Metsmerized that I was a fan filled with worry and concern. Nothing specifically brought me to feel in the manner I did. The Mets were dreadful; they were winning marginally if at all, and failed […]

Despite All The Injuries, Mets On Verge Of Another NL East Title

An article by posted on August 27, 2007

The race for the NL East is slowly drawing to an end. The Phillies and Braves are losing steam, and well, we just keep winning. Before Saturday, the Mets scored 5 runs or more in 12 consecutive games. That’s insane for a team who has had several key players out with injuries. The success from […]
