An article by posted on July 8, 2009 0 Comments

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? I watched eight innings of tonight’s game—rather foolishly as I think about it now—and I decided that hoping […]

Get To Know A Prospect: Ruben Tejada

An article by posted on July 7, 2009 0 Comments

Ruben Tejada does not get a lot of hype, but there are aspects of him that are very interesting, and one of the most intriguing is his age. I had no idea until recently (this season) that during this baseball season he will turn just 19 years old. I thought he was much older than that. […]

Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda: The Jason Marquis Story

An article by posted on July 7, 2009 0 Comments

Before the injuries started mounting, before the fielding and mental errors began to grow, the Mets’ front office made another error.  This error happened in the offseason and it was made by Omar Minaya.  The Mets could have acquired Jason Marquis from the Cubs for practically nothing and didn’t pull the trigger.

At the end of the meeting Grant told the Mets “I believe in you guys”, at which point pitcher Tug McGraw yelled out “YA GOTTA […]

I know it sounds like bad dialogue out of a comic book or a Michael Bay movie but it is unfortunately true.  Omar over the last couple of years seemed to be the “Teflon GM.”  The last 2 seasons we have witnessed the Mets collapse and miss going into the playoffs by one game.  Omar […]

Swept Away Again — Disgusting

An article by posted on July 6, 2009 0 Comments

Hmmm… what next genius move will emanate from Mets’ ownership? Perhaps the promotion of Josh Thole or Wilmer Flores. My God, what farther depths will we sink to this season? If being swept out of Citi by the Yanks weren’t bad enough, today we fans were treated to a greater humiliation (owing to playoff chances […]

Thoughts After A Lost Weekend

An article by posted on July 6, 2009 0 Comments

Watching the Mets this past weekend ranked slightly above the on goings with the Kardashian Clan, but below C-Span. Anytime your hometown team averages one run per game, in the bandbox known as Citizen’s Bank Ballpark, it is a frustrating and sleepy endeavor. Regardless of who appears in the daily lineup. Right now the Mets […]
