As I’ve gotten older I’ve seemed to have become more and more nostalgic about my childhood. It’s only natural considering in September I’m going to be a father for the first time. I remember the lessons my dad taught me as if he sat me down yesterday. One lesson that made a huge impression was […]

This will be my final defense in the case of Omar Minaya versus the NY Mets fan base. Last night, I wrote an article where I explained why it’s time for Jerry Manuel to be let go. There is a difference to me between wanting a manager fired in May because the team lost a […]

We could use Nelson Figueroa.  After Johan Santana and Mike Pelfrey, he would be our next best starting pitcher. I was never sold on John Maine after seeing him in spring training.  He’s recently had a few positive starts, though those were against weak hitting NL teams and at the friendly confines of Citifield when […]

It’s finally happened Met Nation. I finally snapped and used my “TV Brick” to throw at my 37 inch flat panel. The sponge brick, a gift from my ex-wife about 16-18 years ago, heretofore has only been used when watching NFL football. The last time I recall I threw it in anger was a playoff […]

It’s Time to Shea Goodbye to Jerry

An article by posted on May 16, 2010 0 Comments

So I spent the weekend away, away from the internet and for the most part away from the Mets outside of highlights on the MLB Network in the morning. Oh, by the way. Personal endorsement. If you have the option to watch MLB Network’s Quick Pitch or MLB Tonight instead of Sportscenter/Baseball Tonight. Do yourself […]
