Chris Carlin and Kim Jones of WFAN had Willie Randolph on as a guest yesterday, and he had a lot to say about a lot of things. After spending a good deal of time talking about the New York Giants, the conversation eventually moved on to the Mets. I transcribed it for you and will post it in two parts with the rest of the interview going up later today. Attitude – People wanted me […]
After the disappointing end to the 2007 season, many Mets fans were forced to start thinking of the 2008 season even before the calendar changed. Morale is a big concern of mine. As a player, I would be thinking, hey, there were no major moves to change the make-up of this team, which means that we have to do so much more with what we already have. And any changes we did make, involve a […]
Finding something to blog about every day in the off season is not as easy as it may sound. That’s why every now and then you have to put up with my mindless ramblings and senseless outpourings… Today is one of those days as I decided to look at each National League team’s top two pitchers, and see where they ranked against each other. I didn’t think the Mets would rank anywhere in the top, […]
After this season, not only will Pedro Martinez be a free agent, but Orlando Hernandez and Oliver Perez as well. It’s no secret that Oliver Perez wants to play for San Diego so he can be closer to home. On Friday, the Mets exchanged arbitration figures with Perez and the two parties were $2 million dollars apart. That’s a huge chasm even in today’s inflated market. While the Mets have unsuccessfully scrambled to add a top […]
Happy Friday everybody! I hope everyone has had a productive and exciting week! Forgive my excitement folks, being a month away from pitchers and catchers reporting makes me do it. I’m almost as jumpy as Robin Williams after 12 lattes, thinking about it. The fresh air, green grass, sound of bats cracking and leather popping, the taste of $6.00 Hot Dogs and knishes and sweltering heat all bring back the days of my youth. Not a […]
Okay, okay, okay. So the recent hype has been about the Mets acquiring Johan Santana for Carlos Gomez, Mike Pelfrey, Philip Humber, Deolis Guerra, Kevin Mulvey, and 19-year-old phenom outfielder Fernando Martinez. I wouldn’t complete this deal if I was Omar Minaya. Fernando Martinez has the potential to be a star when he comes up. He just needs more time in the minors and will hopefully be around for opening day 2009. Carlos Gomez is […]
Last night I watched Mets Hot Stove Baseball on SNY and of course the topic of Johan Santana reared its little head. In a light-hearted moment, Kevin Burkhardt asked Ken Rosenthal to predict where the Johan Santana would end up when all was said and done. Here is what he said… "At the risk of ruining my perfect record, I am 0 for 12 so far with my predictions… I really believe that he ends […]
According to a poll on Mets Hot Stove Live on SNY, 77% of viewers still believe the Mets are the team to beat. Personally, I believe the Mets do still have the best team. Top to bottom, the lineup is a force to be reckoned with. The pitching is another story. Was 2007 just a fluke, for both the Phillies and the Mets? Um, yes. Quite frankly, I think it was a fluke year for […]
Carlos Delgado thought it would be easy to overcome a couple of off season surgeries, the birth of a new child and being the cleanup hitter for a team that was considered by many to be odds on favorite to become National League champs and compete in the 2007 World Series. He was expected to be the offensive catalyst that helped the Mets win the NL East in 2006. Back then, his powerful bat enabled […]
