For the first time this month, a Mets starting pitcher finally earned a victory.  (Only took them 17 days.)  Last night’s win was a big one for the Mets.  (Seems like we’re always saying that.)  Mike Pelfrey went a solid 7 and 2/3 innings, giving up only two runs.  And though the Mets offense didn’t […]

I openly admit that I have not come to terms with the fact that we actually dealt with a four game sweep in Florida, because in my recent memory, that has never happened before. The Mets were usually able to scratch out a game or something, but we really messed it up this weekend. It’s […]

Jason Bay is a guess hitter because he has been streaky his entire career.  So far, his short tenure with the Mets has been one wrong answer after another.   Take the seventh inning of Sunday’s fifth straight Mets loss – Please.  With the annoying Marlins about to break out a four-pack of brooms, the Mets […]

Mets Need To Fire Coaches Too!

An article by posted on May 18, 2010 0 Comments

Baseball is a long season and when a team under-performs the way the Mets are you always hear the usual fire the manger and/or general manager.  I support that 100%.  Jerry and Omar absolutely need to go.  Omar has done a horrible job of building the franchise and Jerry Manuel is just not a manager […]

The rumblings we’ve been hearing on blogs, news sites and other media forms are true: Takahashi is scheduled to make Friday night’s […]

The Ship Hasn’t Sunk, But It Is Leaking

I know it has been some time since my last contribution, so hopefully this one is good enough to make up for lost time… After another interesting, if not depressing week of Mets’ baseball, it is clear as day that this team needs to make some changes. While everyone is calling for Jerry Manuel’s head, […]
