Well, happy almost end of the week to everybody! Once again, an uneventful week in the world of major league baseball. I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m getting pretty sick of hearing about who the front runner for Johan Santana is. I think SI.com has an article at least 3 times a week about it. I just want to tell the Twins to make up their minds already. They have to do something in […]
The Mets are now looked at as the clear favorites in the Johan Santana sweepstakes by more than just a few credible sources. Yesterday alone Jon Heyman of SI.com and the Boston Globe hinted as much. There is absolutely no escaping these rumors. Every morning I make my usual treks to my favorite Mets sites, starting with Matt’s MetsBlog and then I move onto ESPN Insider, AOL Fanhouse, and finally Fox Sports. Lately it’s always Santana, Santana, […]
Here is the second part of the WFAN interview with Willie randolph by Chris Carlin and Kim Jones. The first part was posted earlier today. Carlos Delgado – He is not the fiery type or a boisterous leader, but he leads by example and you have to let people be who they are. He knows exactly what he needs to do without me having to tell him. He is remorseful and he’s looking to come […]
Chris Carlin and Kim Jones of WFAN had Willie Randolph on as a guest yesterday, and he had a lot to say about a lot of things. After spending a good deal of time talking about the New York Giants, the conversation eventually moved on to the Mets. I transcribed it for you and will post it in two parts with the rest of the interview going up later today. Attitude – People wanted me […]
After the disappointing end to the 2007 season, many Mets fans were forced to start thinking of the 2008 season even before the calendar changed. Morale is a big concern of mine. As a player, I would be thinking, hey, there were no major moves to change the make-up of this team, which means that we have to do so much more with what we already have. And any changes we did make, involve a […]
Finding something to blog about every day in the off season is not as easy as it may sound. That’s why every now and then you have to put up with my mindless ramblings and senseless outpourings… Today is one of those days as I decided to look at each National League team’s top two pitchers, and see where they ranked against each other. I didn’t think the Mets would rank anywhere in the top, […]
After this season, not only will Pedro Martinez be a free agent, but Orlando Hernandez and Oliver Perez as well. It’s no secret that Oliver Perez wants to play for San Diego so he can be closer to home. On Friday, the Mets exchanged arbitration figures with Perez and the two parties were $2 million dollars apart. That’s a huge chasm even in today’s inflated market. While the Mets have unsuccessfully scrambled to add a top […]
Happy Friday everybody! I hope everyone has had a productive and exciting week! Forgive my excitement folks, being a month away from pitchers and catchers reporting makes me do it. I’m almost as jumpy as Robin Williams after 12 lattes, thinking about it. The fresh air, green grass, sound of bats cracking and leather popping, the taste of $6.00 Hot Dogs and knishes and sweltering heat all bring back the days of my youth. Not a […]
Here’s the the final part of the interview I did with Steve Popper of the Bergen Record. JD - Should the Mets get off to a slow start in 2008, and find themselves hovering around .500 and in third place at the All Star Break, should either Willie Randolph or Omar Minaya be worried about their job security? SP: I think Willie Randolph might want to worry this time around if he starts 0-1. Clearly, he was dangling […]
