A Catcher The Mets Should Sign And One They Should Avoid Like The Plague

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets have a lot of holes to fill in 2010.  They need an actual number 2 pitcher in the rotation; they need a set-up guy in the bullpen, a left fielder and a catcher.  Last week I addressed the left field situation and a lot of you readers had a few opinions to say […]

How About Brandon Lyon Setting Up K-Rod?

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

Yesterday, Joe D posted a blog suggesting that picking up J.J. Putz’s option would be a waste of money.  I happen to agree with his position.  Putz’s option is way too much for a man who has been a shadow of himself due to various injuries.  There are other less expensive options the Mets could […]

Mets Would Be Wise To Look Into DeWayne

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

DeWayne Wise will forever be known for the spectacular catch that he made on July 23rd, 2009, which allowed pitcher, Mark Buehrle, to earn the second no-hitter of his career. Despite enjoying two of the best years in his career in Chicago, Wise declined an assignment to the club’s Triple-A affiliate recently and elected to […]

Ex-Met Hernandez, No Longer Livan’ In The High Life

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

2009 has been a year to forget for, former-Met, Livan Hernandez from a personal standpoint. I had reported back in August that Hernandez was being sued over damage done to a rental car. Unfortunately, now the pitcher’s troubles have hit closer to home…literally. Robert Snell at the Detroit News, who also broke the two IRS […]

A Fan Friendly Post Season?

An article by posted on October 19, 2009 0 Comments

I keep reading how the suits running MLB want the post season to be seen by the largest amount of fans possible. Also about how they want the kids to be able to enjoy the post season. I guess that’s why they decided to air the Phillies-Rockies game at 10:00pm last Sunday night. I’m sure […]

Mets Aren’t The Only Team That Peaked In 2006

Three years ago today, Carlos Beltran got a good look at an Adam Wainwright curveball and the Cardinals went on to the 2006 World Series.  (I have spared my fellow Mets fans from having to see that picture by showing you a photo of Beltran hitting a home run against the Cardinals instead.)  After that […]

Mets Want First Baseman To Pair With Murphy

An article by posted on October 18, 2009 0 Comments

According to Adam Rubin of the Daily News, the Mets will probably look for a power bat in left field and look for a right handed bat at first base to platoon with Daniel Murphy. While the Mets know they need to get an upgrade in power in left field or first base, I get […]

It Was Vintage Pedro Out There Last Night

An article by posted on October 17, 2009 0 Comments

Many were surprised by the spectacular performance put on by one-time Met Pedro Martinez. I wasn’t. The 37-year old righthander looked more like the 27-year old version as he completely shut down a voracious Dodgers offense and held them to just two hits during seven shutout innings of pure vintage Pedro. Martinez didn’t walk any batters as he […]

What Went Wrong With The Mets Bullpen

An article by posted on October 17, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets seemed set up for a great 2009 season.  Not the least of their strengths would be their bullpen, which was overhauled during the off season. We signed K-Rod, and then made the big trade for JJ Putz, and even got Sean Green back in that deal which looked so good at the time. Returning would be Perpetual […]

I Still Can’t Move On

Are you guys sick of the Yankees yet? I can’t seem to avoid them or Brett Favre no matter where I turn these days. They’re just always everywhere… What angers me most, and makes me turn ten different shades of green, is listening to the media paint them as a team that has had to […]
