Shea Deserves Better Than This

An article by posted on September 27, 2008

Okay, it might not be as storied as Yankee Stadium but it still doesn’t change the fact that Shea Stadium is also closing, being knocked down, and destined to be a parking lot for Citi Field. I’m angry with the Mets right now. It seems like every year around this time, we turn into a […]

Hot or Not: We’re in the Home Stretch Edition!

An article by posted on September 20, 2008

The Mets climbed back into first place after a 9-5 victory over the much maligned Braves. Oh, and that one team in Philadelphia got walloped by the Marlins (Yay Marlins!) Welcome to another installment of Hot or Not. I’m hoping the Mets can carry this column into the post season. Daniel Murphy and Nick Evans […]

Why Doesn’t Anyone Blame David Wright?

An article by posted on September 19, 2008

I love David Wright as much as the next Mets fan (okay, maybe even more) but he seems to be immune to any blame for the Mets current affairs. I got excited as David finally reached the .300 mark last week and I cried when David entered a 1-for-18 slide that puts his current average […]

We’re in the Home Stretch!

An article by posted on September 13, 2008

The New York Mets have 17 games left to play. As has been the story all season, we blew a 7 game lead with 17 left to play. It’s bad enough we historically collapsed, but if I have to hear about it on a national broadcast one more time, I’ll break my TV. Seriously, the […]

Carlos Beltran 5, Marlins 4

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. The first pitch he sees off Kevin Gregg ends up in the right-center field stands, in the section of Dolphin Stadium aptly known as the “Fish Tank.” And […]

Mike Pelfrey’s Time Is Now

An article by posted on August 29, 2008

Mike Pelfrey is obviously the present and the future of this Mets rotation. 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 […]

And They Keep On Rolling!

An article by posted on August 23, 2008

Happy Saturday Mets fans! And welcome to another installment of Hot or Not! The main story this week is the return of both Ryan Church and Luis Castillo. I thought sweeping the Braves would be more bittersweet, but I guess our anger and resentment now resides in Philadelphia. The Mets have won 10 out of […]

An article by posted on August 16, 2008

Happy Saturday Mets fans and welcome to another installment of Hot or Not. This week, we watched our boys climb back into sole possession of first place by completing a sweep of the Washington Nationals. We saw Mike Pelfrey dominate the Washington Nationals. I am so proud of our Mets, therefore, none of them will […]

What A View From the Top!

An article by posted on August 15, 2008

After doing what was expected necessary, our New York Metropolitans find themselves sitting atop the NL East. Clutch hitting, a stellar rotation, and a bullpen that saves games (for a change) all played pivotal roles this week. It also helped that Manny was being Manny in L.A. instead of Boston. And I would also like […]
