An article by posted on July 29, 2009 0 Comments

Last night, following his demotion to Triple A, Chicago White Sox third baseman Josh Fields revealed that he has requested that White Sox GM Kenny Williams attempt to trade him before Friday’s trade deadline. Due to such short notice and Fields’ strong desire to be traded it would be a pretty good indication that Williams […]

Unless you’ve had your heads in the sand, you all know that Luis Castillo is on fire. He might be more responsible for this little winning streak than any one player on the team. Since dropping that popup in Yankee Stadium, Castillo has transformed himself back into the player that made him a three time […]

We’re very sorry about what happened. It was the wrong forum. The […]

The Big Pelf kept the Mets winning streak alive tonight as they won their fourth game in a row. Pelfrey pitched 6.1 shutout innings working himself out of bases loaded jams several times. Daniel Murphy has really stepped up for the team and scored the first run off of a Jeff Francoeur single in the second inning. In the […]

The New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch announced today on Twitter that the Mets have signed career minor leaguer Adam Pettyjohn to a minor-league deal and have assigned him to the Buffalo Bisons. Nothing too interesting here as Pettyjohn has been ineffective throughout his big league career. I get the sense that this move was made […]

An article by posted on July 28, 2009 0 Comments

When the Mets lost the rubber game of a 3 game set with Washington, the camera panned in on the Mets dugout and it looked as though everybody had just seen a ghost.

Defending Omar Minaya

Somebody has to defend Omar Minaya right? Prior to yesterday, I felt he should keep his job as I’ve stated and discussed with Joe D back and forth. Today, I still remain in favor of Minaya keeping his job and helping this team get into the playoffs, this year! To me, Omar Minaya now more […]

Mets Create Conflict Of Interest, Than Use It As A Crutch

An article by posted on July 28, 2009 0 Comments

In responding to a post I read earlier today, I left a comment that I thought was a good stand-alone for a blog post. If you listened to WFAN this morning, they spent a great deal of time ripping into Adam Rubin if in fact he inquired about a job with the Mets. I also […]

Omar, Any Respect I Had For You Is Gone!

Before you read any further I just want to make it clear that I have never, I repeat never inquired about getting a job with Player Development for the New York Mets. Yesterday Omar Minaya after what I am sure was an exhausting investigation into the Tony Bernazard situation finally announced that the Mets fired […]
