Sometimes I just sit back and wonder to myself, “If a player didn’t come up playing for a New York team, would he blossom?” and I often find myself saying yes. (See Heath Bell, Matt Lindstrom, Scott Kazmir) Now, I’m someone who constantly bashes the New York media(Including the fans sometimes!) for making something out […]

Yesterday on his twitter Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman posted the following: “minaya, manuel have been told by mets boss jeff wilpon they wont be fired over this painful season.” This organization continues to amaze me.

Johan And Then What?

An article by posted on July 21, 2009 0 Comments

There has been so much talk this season about the injuries to three of the four offensive guys, that the state of the Mets starting pitching has gone virtually unnoticed. Until now. Looking at the Mets staring rotation, the only certifiable, front end pitcher is Johan Santana. Heck, for my money Johan is the best […]

It was revealed a few hours ago that the Mets were offered Cy Young winner Roy Halladay for a collection of Bobby Parnell, Fernando Martinez, Jon Niese, and Ruben Tejada and Omar Minaya rejected the trade.  Many seem to see this as a way of giving up, and it could appear that way.  But let’s […]

Today, I called my dad to wish him a happy birthday. The subject naturally went from how many candles he’s blowing out tonight to the Mets. Okay, so we beat the Nationals. The sad thing was that I was excited about it. I threw my hands in the air without looking at the bigger picture; […]

Mets DL Fernando Nieve, Call Up Cory Sullivan

An article by posted on July 20, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets have placed starting pitcher Fernando Nieve on the disabled list with a strained right quadricep muscle. Nieve hurt himself while running to first base in Sunday’s game against the Braves, and he pulled up lame. He had to be carted off the field.  I’m a little surprised that the Mets opted to replace […]

Mets On The Verge Of Double Digits In ‘Games Back’

An article by posted on July 20, 2009 0 Comments

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at the standings anymore. Four games out was cute. You want to give us a little something to be anxious about and keep us in the game – fine. Seven games out was worrisome. You want to test our loyalty and make us sweat – okay. But the fact […]
