Another Salute To Dickey

Heading into this season R.A. had a 14-22 record and 6.30 ERA in 48 career starts.  The nicest thing that could be said of his career numbers were centered about the promise he showed while working out of the Mariner’s bullpen in 2008, when he posted a 2.oo ERA in 36 relief innings. This year, […]

Just another manic Monday, huh, Met Nation? Hopefully, better days are on the horizon for what could be arguably the most beleaguered large market team in the league. It’s expected that the team wins. It’s expected that the team spends. It’s expected that there are more playoff runs, positive progressions and growth, and pennants and […]

He’s a terrible manager. He burns out the bullpen. He hooks the starters too quickly. The players don’t respond to him. There’s dissension in the clubhouse. He’s lost control of the team. He needs to go. Once we get rid of him things will improve. No, I’m not talking about Jerry Manuel. I heard these […]

Well, Mets fans, we did it. We endured another long season of Mets baseball, only to see our boys play to an 79-83 record (fourth in the NL East) and miss the playoffs for the fourth straight year. Though we will now turn our attention to football, hockey, or basketball, let’s take a look at […]

With the final game of the regular 2010 season approaching us, I think it’s only fair to give credit where credit is due.

Will Pedro Feliciano Be Back In 2011?

One of the first decisions the new Mets GM will have to make, is to decide whether he will simply let lefty specialist Pedro Feliciano walk and become a free agent, sign him to a multi year deal, or offer him arbitration. “Perpetual Pedro” is quite possibly one of the most reliable and durable relievers in the game […]
