Mets Comeback Falls Short; Lose 6-5 To D’backs

An article by posted on August 3, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets came close to pulling a rabbit out of their hat tonight after falling behind 6-0 to the Diamondbacks after two innings. They came up a run short, but came so close to tying and winning the game if not for another baserunning blunder by Angel Pagan. Nelson Figueroa was called up to make […]

Has Omar Waved The White Flag?

An article by posted on August 3, 2009 0 Comments

With the Mets making absolutely no moves at the trade deadline, it makes me wonder if Omar Minaya has given up on this years team. After winning 6 of 9, most Mets fans are believing, but apparently Minaya is not. Minaya has also not pushed very hard to get Reyes, Beltran, Delgado, Maine, and Putz […]

Here we are in August, with a sub-par July behind us. You could say the Mets finished on a high note, but then you’d be partially lying. The Mets took a series win against the Rockies and some momentum into their series with the Diamondbacks, and promptly lost the first and third games. However, there […]

You may have heard over the weekend that Wally Backman was fired from his job as manager of the Joliet Jack Hammers of the Northern League. I love Wally, he was a great Met, but I’m not surprised he was let go. What is surprising though, is that some Mets fans are considering and hoping […]

The beards must grow on!  After the players vowed not to shave until the Mets reached the .500 mark, the team continued their inconsistent play since their five-game winning streak ended on Thursday, as they were defeated by the Diamondbacks by the final score of 5-2.  The loss dropped the Mets 7½ games behind the […]

Here’s a quick question for you to consider.  Who is the longest tenured Mets player currently on the 25-man roster who has not played in the majors for any other franchise during his time with the team?  Although you might think the answer is Jose Reyes, he’s only been with the team since June 2003.

Mailbag: Player Options and Prospects

An article by posted on August 2, 2009 0 Comments

Will the Mets pickup the options on Billy Wagner of J.J. Putz? I feel the Mets should not pick up either of their options unless within the final two months of the season they are able to prove that they have significant value with no signs of holding back because of their injuries. The barometer […]
