Randolph Needs to Learn that Nice Guys Finish LAST

An article by posted on May 15, 2008

I have to. I just have to. I couldn’t sleep all night thinking about the mess that happened last night.  True, with few minor exceptions, the Mets bats were not awake until the latter part of the game, but the end result would have been enough to win or at least force extra innings and […]

Do You Trust Heilman In A Close Game?

An article by posted on May 14, 2008

Willie Randolph inherited the wrath of the fans tonight when he came out to take the ball from Aaron Heilman who had just allowed four Nationals to cross the plate and take the lead in the seventh inning. The boos were twice as loud and twice as thunderous than the ones that greeted Heilman as […]

An article by posted on May 14, 2008

What the hell was with the Nationals Monday night, specifically, Elijah Dukes and Lenny Harris?  It was like little league out there. A last place team chanting in the dugout, during a meaningless game, as each player stepped into the batter’s box.  Were they that bored? That cold?  Figueroa had the perfect response, if you […]

Decision 2008 – America Decides This Weeks Metsy

An article by posted on May 12, 2008

Yet another Monday has come and followed a weekend series where the Mets have taken 2 out of 3 games from an opponent and as a result I have a little more spring in my step today. It was nice to see Carlos Beltran have a good day, he certainly was due for one. Maybe the pink bats […]

An article by posted on May 11, 2008

"It’s just a spring clean for the May queen. Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run There’s still time to change the road you’re on. And it makes me wonder." With apologies to Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, I have to disagree because I am a little alarmed. […]

Isn’t It Ironic… Don’t Ya Think…

An article by posted on May 11, 2008

I love this game! There’s nothing else like it… Yesterday one of our regular readers pointed me to a fact that has gone widely unnoticed by many Mets fans. He told me that the only two Mets batting over .300 were Ryan Church and Brian Schneider. That’s right… the two players we got in the […]

An article by posted on May 10, 2008

Welcome back to another addition of Hot and Not. The Mets have shown great strides towards improvement, but they had good numbers against Brad Penny to begin with. Hopefully, they’ll sweep this doubleheader and they get the confidence they need. Who’s HotMoises Alou: Okay, so he’s only played in a couple of games. And he […]

The Ring of Fire… Is It There?

An article by posted on May 9, 2008

The most predominant question in my mind has been if the Mets have the fire within them to succeed. For whatever reason, to me, it seems like the Mets of September have simply just carried over into 2008. They’re not playing with the same zest and enthusiasm that they played with in 2006 and most […]
