An article by posted on October 18, 2007

This week as I conclude this short series I wanted to focus on the pitching. This is probably the one area that Omar Minaya will have to concentrate most of his efforts this off-season. The Mets starting pitching and bullpen both failed to meet expectations in 2007 and barring some significant changes, it may be […]

Mailbag: Will The Mets Win A Division In 2008?

An article by posted on October 13, 2007

Will the Mets still have basically the same five guys in the rotation in 2008 with Pedro essentially replacing Glavine at number one? Will that be enough to win a division? It’s very difficult to say whether a rotation of 1. Pedro Martinez, 2. Orlando Hernandez, 3. John Maine, 4. Oliver Perez, 5. Mike Pelfrey would […]

It was written by Wallace Matthews, who decided to throw what little professionalism he had as a writer, out with the trash last night. I still can’t believe that a solid newspaper like Newsday allowed such a hate-filled tirade against […]

Jose Reyes Still Ranks High With Most NL Managers

An article by posted on October 12, 2007

The Mets recently granted free agency to pitcher Jon Adkins, who was one of the players that we received when we traded Royce Ring and Heath Bell to the San Diego Padres. Adkins wasn’t exactly terrible for New Orleans and posted a 3.99 ERA in 48 games, while posting a 2-4 record with 5 saves. The other […]
