Who’s Hot and Who’s Not? And Who’s Stuck in the Middle?

An article by posted on May 10, 2008

Welcome back to another addition of Hot and Not. The Mets have shown great strides towards improvement, but they had good numbers against Brad Penny to begin with. Hopefully, they’ll sweep this doubleheader and they get the confidence they need. Who’s HotMoises Alou: Okay, so he’s only played in a couple of games. And he […]

The Ring of Fire… Is It There?

An article by posted on May 9, 2008

The most predominant question in my mind has been if the Mets have the fire within them to succeed. For whatever reason, to me, it seems like the Mets of September have simply just carried over into 2008. They’re not playing with the same zest and enthusiasm that they played with in 2006 and most […]

An article by posted on May 5, 2008

Greetings and salutations my fellow Met-heads! Once again we had a nice finish to the weekend with the Mets beating the D-backs in 2 out of 3 games in the desert. Even if Johan didn’t get the victory, we can still take away the fact he out dueled Danny Haren. Now on to Dodger Stadium […]

Hey Mets fans, this is a new feature I will be doing every Saturday highlighting the best (and worst) of the week. Anybody (or any aspect) of the Mets can be hot (or not). Who’s HotRyan Church: So far, he has been the Mets MVP. Voting has started for the All-Star game and if anybody […]

Hey Yankee Fans — How Do You Feel About Philip Hughes Now?

An article by posted on May 2, 2008

One of the few brighter spots in the Mets rotation this April has been Mike Pelfrey. Okay, so he’s not Johan Santana but he is 2-1 with a 4.43 ERA (and that’s only because of his last start against Atlanta, he let off 5 runs in 5.1 innings for those keeping score at home). We […]

And The “Metsy” Goes To…

An article by posted on April 28, 2008

A happy Monday morning indeed Met-heads!   This makes two weekends in a row that I was able to lay my head down at night peacefully, knowing the Mets had won. What makes this victory even sweeter is the fact it came at the expense of John Smoltz and the hated Braves. I always cringe when I […]

Mission Possible: Beating our Division

An article by posted on April 18, 2008

After sweeping the Nationals at home, the Mets are just an hour away from bringing that swagger and conifdence to Philadelphia. With first place on the line, the Mets have everything they need to climb into that position, if not tonight, then sometime this weekend. Our offense is coming around, the bullpen is getting better, […]

Blus Skies Smilin’ On Me

An article by posted on April 18, 2008

Anytime the Mets lace up their cleats and take the field, there prime objective is to make a statement, their message, clear as crystal, to prove they’re indeed the cream of the National League. Early on thus far this season the Mets on field play has appeared to be spotty at best. A worrisome hangover […]

Just Another Manic Monday…

An article by posted on April 14, 2008

Happy Monday… kind of an oxymoron if you ask me. Right up there with “Smart Jock” and “Classy Phillies”.   It has been a rough week for our beloved Mets, which in turn makes it a worse week for fans. Hopefully starting Tuesday night against the “Gnats”, things will finally turn around. It’s a good […]

Same Old Song and Dance?

An article by posted on April 11, 2008

When Angel Pagan hit the game winning single in the bottom of the 12th inning yesterday, it marked the first time I was excited for the Mets, and I mean really excited for the Mets, since Johan Santana opened up the season in Miami. Really though, the Mets were playing Triple-A players and Hanley Ramirez […]
