Steve Phillips Weighs In On Pedro and Pudge

An article by posted on March 12, 2009

Former Mets GM and current ESPN analyst Steve Phillips gave his thoughts on Pedro Martinez last night, and even though there’s no chance the Mets would pursue him, I found what he had to say very interesting. After watching Martinez last year, I had real doubts whether he’d be a competitive major league pitcher again. But […]

Mets Are Justified In Staying Away From Pedro

An article by posted on March 11, 2009

Mets fans may be clamoring for the return of Pedro Martinez but management is not.  I agree with team brass, not because I love the candidates for the fifth starting slot, but does anyone believe he could hold up to the rigors of a full season when he has broken apart at the seams the […]

Circle Of Love – Duaner, Omar, Jerry

An article by posted on March 11, 2009

Good evening MetsMerizers! I woke up this morning feeling pretty good and the first thing I see on SI.com is an article about how Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya are at odds over Duaner Sanchez being released.   Granted, the article was taken from the NY post so I’m sure it’s a bit exaggerated. The Mets […]

Cory Sullivan Isn’t Messing Around

An article by posted on March 11, 2009

Cory Sullivan has adopted a take no prisoners approach to spring training this season. Even though he signed a major league contract in January to play with the Mets, he is taking no chances. He’s not walking around with a sense of entitlement believing that he doesn’t have to try hard because he is a lock to […]

It was sad to find out that outfielder Angel Pagan was diagnosed with a bone spur in his right elbow and that he now faces the prospect of another surgery. The diagnosis was made after Pagan went to New York for an MRI exam which revealed the bone spur. Pagan, had his 2008 season cut short when […]

An article by posted on March 10, 2009

David Lennon of Newsday is now reporting that GM Omar Minaya just announced minutes ago that Duaner Sanchez has been released. Sanchez knew he had to fight for a job this spring — he said as much after yesterday’s outing — but the Mets didn’t hesitate to cut him loose. I figured Minaya would wait […]

A few weeks back fans of the New York Mets nearly went into cardiac arrest when it was announced that Johan Santana was experiencing some stiffness in his left elbow which as we all know is his throwing arm.  Santana was scheduled to fly out of Florida and into New York for an MRI to […]

Jerry Manuel Is So Much More Than A Gangsta

An article by posted on March 10, 2009

There are so many qualities I admire about Jerry Manuel, but the one I admire most is his ability to be forthright and tell it like it is. Unlike past Mets managers, I never get the feeling that Manuel is simply paying us lip service. Yesterday, he weighed in on Pedro Martinez and regardless of […]

Mets Would Be Smart To Cut Duaner Sanchez

An article by posted on March 9, 2009

I think it’s time we stop dreaming about the Duaner Sanchez we saw for three months in 2006, and start accepting the fact that the “pre taxi cab from hell” Sanchez is never coming back. It’s been three years… Lets move on already… The truth is that, he was riding a hot April in 2006 […]
