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 […]

The Braves Can’t Wipe This Smile From My Face

An article by posted on April 7, 2008

Consistency, the mark of a true champion..   Winning teams throughout the history of sports more often than not are found to be models of consistency. The timely base hit, homerun or RBI, even clutch play from a quarterback as time expires to lead their teams to victory, snatching it from the jaws of defeat. […]

It’s Time For Your Friday Fix – Instant Replay: Yes or No

An article by posted on April 4, 2008

Finally, Friday has arrived! The pinnacle of the week in my eyes in that it’s just close enough to the weekend to start getting excited. I didn’t have anything really specific to write about today, so I figured I would make a blog “gumbo” of sorts, and write about many. First up, the Mets 13-0 […]

Mets Magic Starts with Santana

An article by posted on April 3, 2008

Okay, okay, another "Johan is great" post that’s probably three days late. But with good reason. I didn’t want to write a blog entry that said: "Johan’s awesome!!!! He struck out 8 Marlins!!!! Mets are going all the way!!!!" There’s more to Johan Santana than his strikeout-to-walk ratio. Or the number of innings he pitches. Or […]

Opening Day…Well, They’re Not Exactly Jitters

An article by posted on March 28, 2008

The Mets have not decided on a fifth starter this far into Spring Training. They’re saying Jorge Sosa may get the job, with both Brian Stokes and Joe Smith able to prove themselves worthy of the bullpen. Both Mike Pelfrey and El Duque aren’t ready to start, but I think Pelfrey will be ready before […]
