The Los Angeles Dodgers made themselves right at home last night; lounging out at the Ebbet’s Club, sharing stories of their glory days at the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, and then taking the field and bitch-slapping the Mets. The only thing missing were the Dodger Dogs, but they made do with a Nathan’s hot dog instead. Manny was being Manny, […]

The Mets were shut out Tuesday night by the Dodgers over at Citi Field, the final score Dodgers 8, Mets 0. The last time the Mets scored was on Saturday afternoon. The scoreless streak is at 18+ innings. At what point does Jerry Manuel wake up and realize his offensive strategy isn’t working? Why does […]

Too Late For The Mets To Sell High

An article by posted on July 8, 2009 0 Comments

About a month ago I broached the unpopular vision that if the Mets fell out of contention by the all-star break they should become sellers.

A thought occurred to me last night as the score reached 7-0 Dodgers—I don’t have to watch this crap if I don’t want to.  Not that there’s much on TV besides baseball during the summer except horrible reality shows and re-runs, but I’d rather see anything these days besides watching our Mets get trounced and […]

According to Minaya earlier today, he is “hope[ful]” that the Mets we have can stay competitive until the myth of the injured come back to rescue us and vault us into first place. The GM has hope?
