I know that we’re only 12 games into the season.  I know that today’s date is April 21, 2009 and “it’s only April.”  I know that there are 150 games left to play before the season ends on Sunday, October 4, 2009 against the Houston Astros at Citi Field.  I also know so far this […]

The Mets might have gotten the day off today, but the Mets blogosphere keeps churning. On top of the swell of angst building up over the Dwight Gooden autograph debacle, it’s good to see that most bloggers including Matt Cerrone, agree with our point of view this morning and not only keep the autograph, but even add […]

The Mets simply do not get it. After all the uproar in the media about how Citi Field seems more like a fitting tribute to the Brooklyn Dodgers as opposed to the New York Mets, the front office had an opportunity to alleviate some of those concerns and chose not to. George Willis of the […]

We all need to take a deep breath, relax and step back for a moment. The season is two weeks old and already it appears many fans have given up on our Mets. Yes, this season has been frustrating so far. Yes, this team has failed to get the big hit when needed. We have […]

Talk about your classic head scratchers. I would have loved to be a fly in the room when Omar and his brain-trust made the decision to DFA Darren O’Day, promote Nelson Figueroa, DFA Figueroa 18 hours later and promote Casey Fossum. I bet the conversation went just like this… Omar: Have a seat fellas, we […]

What a horrible game!  Nine men left in scoring position. Situational hitting hovering at or about zero. David Wright, please return to the Mets!  I’m at a loss. Brewers don’t have a good pitching staff, and they made us look terrible. Whenever something good started happening, such as a leadoff double or some such, we’d […]

Random thoughts on the Mets, baseball and global warming… Johan Santana proves that you don’t quibble about prospects when you are getting a proven Major League talent in return. The Twins will be lamenting this trade for years while Mets fans get treated to a pitching gem every time Santana takes the mound. One of […]
