Mets Should Retire # 17 In 2011

No I’m not talking about retiring number 17 for Fernando Tatis and the few weeks he produced for the Mets.  Before Tatis there was another player for the Mets who wore 17. From June 15, 1983 to October 1, 1989 he wore 17 proudly for the New York Mets. This player won 5 Gold Gloves […]

It’s Always About The Money

I feel compelled to pen something before the end of this year, although it is a year that we would all like to forget as Mets fans.  We have had almost nothing to brag about during the off-season as fans of the Metropolitans except that we have returning players that may help us before the […]

An article by posted on December 13, 2010 0 Comments

Last night as I was getting ready for bed, I flipped on the television to find Poker on ESPN2. My first thought was, if ESPN gave Hockey as much airtime as they give poker players, Sidney Crosby would be on everybody’s fathead Christmas wish list!  Before I flipped to the Eagles/Cowboys game (okay yes, I […]

Madoff, The Wilpons And The Mets – What Now?

An article by posted on December 12, 2010 0 Comments

A quote from our blog which rings true to me. “The real solution for the Mets future is to have new owners not encumbered by the Wilpon’s baggage which is now all so obvious to anyone who can see and read the facts.” How can the Wilpons’ continue to put the Mets organization on hold […]

It’s obvious the Mets need a starting pitcher, probably two. They need a second baseman, too, but Daniel Murphy looks like he’s healthy enough to compete in Spring Training, the Mets took a second baseman with very nice looking peripherals in the rule five draft, and Justin Turner might show his stuff in Spring Training, too.

Doug’s Dugout: Throw Some Coal In That Stove Already

In Doug’s Dugout today we talk about the Cold Stove, $$$, and other frozen feeble thoughts: If newly minted General Manager Sandy Alderson was really interested in saving the organization money he would have worked from home instead of attending the Winter Meetings in Orlando. Or purchased a prepaid phone card and used it. Saving […]
