I joined this great team during the early summer months, you know, when we foolishly expected the Mets to make some great September run because “everybody would be back.” I’ve had a great time, and I really cannot wait until next season!

Is Omar Minaya really as safe as the Mets are wanting the public to believe? Ever since the Tony B. / Adam Rubin fiasco, we haven’t heard much from Omar Minaya except to announce a few player moves and even at those times, Mets PR VP Jay Horwitz was close by to prevent any further […]

It was more of the same at Citi Field last night, in a season that just can’t get end fast enough for the Mets at this point. With Mike Pelfrey on the mound, the Mets put themselves in a huge hole. They tried to climb out, but could never mount an extended rally and lost […]

Angel Pagan Is The Mets Best Slugger Not Named Beltran

An article by posted on September 22, 2009 0 Comments

Angel Pagan is having himself quite a season, and is making the most out of the playing time he has gotten in leftfield and centerfield. While looking at his stats this morning, I couldn’t believe that among all Mets with 100 or more at-bats, only Carlos Beltran at .518, has a higher slugging percentage than Angel […]
