I know I don’t normally blog on Saturdays, but felt compelled to today. I’m sure many of you have read Carlos Beltrans’ comments upon arrival at Mets camp today. For those of you that haven’t, here’s a refresher… "To Jimmy Rollins: We are the team to beat." When I first read those words I was stunned. Was I on the right team website? Did Carlos get possessed by a body snatcher? He continued… […]
Finally, amid all of the turmoil with steroids, HGH, the Mitchell report and everything else, baseball is being played. I realize that it’s only spring training and full squad workouts do not begin for a few more days, but it’s still baseball. When I read yesterday that Johan Santana had already reported to Mets camp and was throwing I could not help but get excited. Not just because of baseball being played but because of […]
From the early days that Shea Stadium first embraced their new team, the New York Mets, Karl Ehrhardt was a fixture at almost every game from 1964 through 1981. We all knew Karl by his more famous nickname, the “Sign Man”. He had become famous for holding up the most perfect signs throughout key moments of each game. Sometimes the signs displayed his frustration, but mostly they shared our exuberance and excitement. Whatever the situation […]
David Wright recently said that he believes the Phillies are still the team to beat <cue Jimmy Rollins>. "Philadelphia took care of us last year," he said, "They took care of business in the division. Going into this year, we have to take control again in the NL East." While I love David, I’m going to amend this quote: We need to take control against the PHILLIES. The Phillies are the ones we lost 10 games […]
It has been a pretty good week for New York sports. First the Giants knock off the Patriots and win the Super Bowl, then Mets fans off season dreams became a reality with the introduction of Johan Santana. Forgive my childlike enthusiasm, but off season press conferences are kind of like Christmas morning…except they don’t come every year. I love how media and fans alike get all worked up and the owners, GM and agents […]
The New York Mets proudly introduced their newest addition in a formal press conference today. Top ace pitcher Johan Santana is now officially a Met and very happy to be representing the great city of New York. General manager Omar Minaya spoke first announcing, "It is an historic day today for the New York Mets franchise." After a few encouraging thoughts, Minaya welcomed Santana to the stage as they presented the new pitcher with his #57 jersey. […]
You’re probably wondering if Johan is finally a Met. Well, he’s not a Met, not yet anyways. With the deadline passed, the Major League Baseball have granted the Mets 2-hours to finalize the contract extension with Johan Santana. Jon Heyman from SI.com reports that the Mets and Santana are close to the deal, but not close enough. ..don’t worry Mets fans. We have until 7PM to check on this. Keep it here for any breaking […]
January 29th, 2008. It’s a day that will forever be recognized as one of the most significant days in the history of the New York Mets franchise. It’s not often you can acquire a good starting pitcher, none the less, the best one of the 21st century. Johan Santana pending a contract extension is going to be a Metropolitan. The two time Cy-Young award winner has already made a colossal impact on the organization, the […]
Well, it finally happened. Johan Santana is (tentatively) a New York Met. I can’t speak for everyone but all of a sudden the grass is greener and the sky is bluer than it was a couple of days ago. All that stands in the way is a contract extension and all of the players passing their physicals, which shouldn’t be a problem. Neither the Mets nor Twins would try to bargain with players they knew […]
