An article by posted on September 3, 2008

Josh Thomson of the Journal News spoke to September callup and top Mets prospect, Bobby Parnell. The Mets’ top pitching prospect, Jonathon Niese, got the start last night, but perhaps the next best young arm is Bobby Parnell. The 6-foot-3 right-hander was among 10 call-ups, nine of whom joined the team when rosters expanded yesterday. The […]

Generation K – Deja` Vu All Over Again

An article by posted on September 2, 2008

When Mets fans first heard the term Generation K back in the nineties, it would invoke hope and dreams of a Mets dynasty. The term referred to three highly touted Mets prospects; Jason Isringhausen, Bill Pulsipher and best of all, Paul Wilson. They were supposed to lead the Mets from relative obscurity to the World […]

On the surface July 21, 2004 seemed like a pretty good day for the Mets. We defeated the Expos 5-4 at Shea with a run in the bottom of the 8th. We reached the .500 mark (47-47) and were just three games behind the Phillies. Orber Moreno picked up the win in relief of starter […]

Should Church Play Everyday?

An article by posted on August 31, 2008

I came across this blurb by Bart Hubbuch in the NY Post. Manuel said he will consider pinch-hitting more often for right fielder Ryan Church, who is scuffling a bit at the plate since coming back from a seven-week absence due to post-concussion syndrome. Church is hitting .158 (3-for-19) in his past six games after […]

Random Thoughts On A Sunday Afternoon

An article by posted on August 31, 2008

With every game that passes, a Met fan’s life expectancy drops three years during this divisional race. Why did the Little League World Series championship team from Hawaii look like nine Shane Victorino’s running around out there last week? Seriously, one is enough! Since when does, A.) a bunion sideline you for an entire season, and B.) surgery […]

An article by posted on August 30, 2008

Last night, the New York Mets were down to their last strike. Luis Castillo got on base, followed by David Wright and Carlos Delgado. Enter Carlos Beltran.

With Ollie and Pedro facing free agency, and with John Maine’s shutdown, our Opening Day 2009 rotation is very much up in the air. Barring any major free agent signing (i.e. CC Sabathia), Mike Pelfrey is on pace to become our #2 […]

Putting away all the recent discourse regarding Carlos Delgado for just a moment, I was wondering how the Mets were going to deal with a more pressing issue at the end of this season. What about Pedro Martinez and Oliver Perez? Obviously their situations differ greatly from that of Delgado because the Mets have an […]
