David Wright and the C.

An article by posted on September 16, 2011 0 Comments

Recently, there has been an awful lot of discussion between Mets fans about the dirty little C word. No, not that one. (Captain, my goodness what were you thinking?) Of course, the word is “clutch.” I’ve gone on record as saying I don’t really care about who is clutch and who is not. I think […]

Just Another Fed-Up, Tired Met Fan

An article by posted on September 16, 2011 0 Comments

It seems every year as of late the Mets find themselves embroiled in some kind of controversy, either of their own design or through some vast cosmic anti-Met conspiracy that has prodded this little multi-million dollar team that could. I’m going to try to avoid blaming the Mets troubles on anything ethereal since to do […]

Home Sweet Home? Mets Have Second Most Home Losses In MLB

Blame it on Citi Field… Blame it on the bullpen… Blame it on the starting pitching… Blame it on the offense… Whatever you want to blame it on, the Mets won-loss record at home this season has been horrid. At 31-44 in Citi Field, only the Houston Astros at 28-46 have lost more games in […]

You Ever Pitch, Kid?

I chuckled when I read this little blurb in the Daily News today: Having burned six relievers Thursday, Collins was not going to waste another. In the middle of a disastrous ninth inning, he turned to rookie outfielder Mike Baxter. “You ever pitch, kid?” the manager asked? The Queens product told the skipper, “Not since I […]

Could He Do It?

At this point, it’s down to Jose Reyes and Ryan Braun for the National League batting title.  In the beginning of the season it looked like Reyes was a shoe-in for MVP, however,  with the combination of injuries and the Mets plummeting in the standings, that chance really went away.  As of now here are […]

Terry Collins Is Mad As Hell And He’s Not Gonna Take It Anymore

Poor Terry Collins. He seems like a manager who’s become totally fed up with how his team has performed as the season winds down. Before the game he had this to say: “I want to see some fighting in what’s left, I want to see some, we use the term loosely but I want to […]

From Left Field: A Chat With Mrs. Gil Hodges

To take our minds off the floundering excuse for a baseball team, I present to you a look back at a bit of baseball history from a different perspective. Recently, I was lucky enough to interview Gil Hodges’ widow, Joan Hodges. She was so sweet and had so many great stories. As the saying goes, “Behind […]

Checking In With Some Old Friends: Beltran and Francoeur

That’s a shot of Carlos Beltran blasting the 300th home run of his career last night to gave the Giants the lead and ultimately the 3-1 victory over the Padres. It was the second home run of the game for Beltran who also parked one into the seats above right field in the bottom of the first inning to […]

Are The Mets Done Shoving Parnell Down Our Throats Yet?

An article by posted on September 15, 2011 0 Comments

This is beginning to get ridiculous now.  First the Mets removed Izzy from the closer role and asked him to groom Parnell to be the teams closer.  Now since Parnell has blown 5 saves in 10 chances they have decided to try John Franco as a potential mentor/tutor? I am getting a little tired of […]
