War of the Words

An article by posted on February 21, 2008

Salutations fellow Mets fans! I trust you are all having a happy and healthy Thursday. For some reason, I feel like leaving my sensible self aside for a moment and just being a cocky Mets fan…one moment…   “Yeah baby! We got Johan Santana! That’s 20 wins and 250 strikeouts EASY! Put it all together […]

I know I don’t normally blog on Saturdays, but felt compelled to today. I’m sure many of you have read Carlos Beltrans’ comments upon arrival at Mets camp today. For those of you that haven’t, here’s a refresher…   "To Jimmy Rollins: We are the team to beat."   When I first read those words […]

Finally, amid all of the turmoil with steroids, HGH, the Mitchell report and everything else, baseball is being played.

When I read yesterday that Johan Santana had already reported to Mets camp […]

David Wright recently said that he believes the Phillies are still the team to beat <cue Jimmy Rollins>. "Philadelphia took care of us last year," he said, "They took care of business in the division. Going into this year, we have to take control again in the NL East."

Thursday Ramblings

An article by posted on February 7, 2008

It has been a pretty good week for New York sports. First the Giants knock off the Patriots and win the Super Bowl, then Mets fans off season dreams became a reality with the introduction of Johan Santana.

Well, happy almost end of the week to everybody! Once again, an uneventful week in the world of major league baseball.  I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m getting pretty sick of hearing about who the front runner for Johan Santana is.   I think SI.com has an article at least 3 times a week about […]

I Can’t Wait To Bite Into A $6 Dollar Hot Dog Again

An article by posted on January 18, 2008

Happy Friday everybody! I hope everyone has had a productive and exciting week! Forgive my excitement folks, being a month away from pitchers and catchers reporting makes me do it.  I’m almost as jumpy as Robin Williams after 12 lattes, thinking about it. The fresh air, green grass, sound of bats cracking and leather popping, […]

An article by posted on January 16, 2008

Here’s the the final part of the interview I did with Steve Popper of the Bergen Record.  JD - Should the Mets get off to a slow start in 2008, and find themselves hovering around .500 and in third place at the All Star Break, should either Willie Randolph or Omar Minaya be worried about their job security?

Would the Mets Go For Erik Bedard Instead?

An article by posted on January 15, 2008

Okay, okay, okay. So the recent hype has been about the Mets acquiring Johan Santana for Carlos Gomez, Mike Pelfrey, Philip Humber, Deolis Guerra, Kevin Mulvey, and 19-year-old phenom outfielder Fernando Martinez. I wouldn’t complete this deal if I was Omar Minaya. Fernando Martinez has the potential to be a star when he comes up. […]
