There once was a ballplayer. He ended the regular season without getting a hit in the final 9 games of the year. In spite of this, his team made it to the World Series. His hitting woes continued in the Fall Classic when he went hitless in every game, going 0-21, one of the worst […]

Earlier today, my esteemed colleague, Mr. HoJo’s Mojo wrote about this year’s National League Gold Glove recipients.  As he reported, no Mets players had their gloves touched by King Midas.  That means the picture to the left will not be repeated at Citi Field next season.  Carlos Beltran was not expected to win the Gold […]

Deal with it Mets fans. They say where there’s smoke there’s fire, and right now there is an inferno raging where Luis Castillo is concerned. Debating whether Luis Castillo should stay or go has been a fun and interesting exercise for Mets fans lately, but the fact of the matter is we have no say […]

Carlos Beltran: A True Role Model For Today’s Kids

An article by posted on November 12, 2009 0 Comments

Carlos Beltran has always been a soft-spoken leader, preferring to lead by example rather than through rah-rah histrionics.  Throughout his career, he has been a player that has done everything well on the field.  He can hit for average (.325 in 2009, career .283 hitter), hit for power (franchise record-tying 41 HR in 2006), steal […]

No Gold For The Mets

The Rawlings Gold Glove Awards were announced today and unfortunately no Mets were honored for outstanding defense. David Wright who had won two straight gold glove awards in 2007 and 2008, was supplanted by Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals at third base. Wright committed 18 errors in 2009 and had the lowest range factors of his […]

In the last five days, I hear the name of Randy Wolf more often when it comes to the Mets pursuit of a number two starter, than this years pick of the litter, John Lackey.

Quit Focusing on 2B!

An article by posted on November 11, 2009 0 Comments

I logged on today to find an article by a fellow blogger about how the Mets should focus on Brandon Phillips for 2010. I immediately slipped into a state of shock, which lead to an unconscious state, and now here I am. Following 2008, everybody was down on Luis Castillo. Castillo had his worst offensive […]

With the Winter Meetings already underway, Mets GM Omar Minaya (or according to some, Jeff Wilpon in disguise) is faced with the daunting task of building a World Series contending team for 2010. Aside from the obvious needs of a left fielder and a top-of-the-rotation starting pitcher, Minaya has made it clear that the team […]

“In Omar We Trust(ed)”

Omar Minaya was hired prior to the 2005 season to turn around the floundering New York Mets.  The team and its management were in chaos.  The Mets had completed three consecutive losing seasons with 86, 95, and 91 losses.  The low point occurred in 2004 when the Mets traded top prospect Scott Kazmir for Victor […]
