An article by posted on December 15, 2010 0 Comments

As we come to grips with the fact that hope will be the prevailing theme in 2011 and that basically we are playing the same hand we had last season minus Johan Santana, we will all have our patience tested. There’s a lot of things that need to go right where hope is concerned for […]

Several Mets bloggers and I were lucky enough to ask Mets GM Sandy Alderson a few questions at the Mets holiday party. The major topic we discussed was the Cliff Lee deal with the Phillies. “A little bit surprised it was the Phillies,” said Alderson. “We knew there was a third club involved. It makes […]

Did Cliff Lee’s Wife’s Brush-In With Fans Cost The Yankees?

An article by posted on December 14, 2010 0 Comments

I just saw this on the latest Inside Edition and thought I would raise this particular question here. As we all know, the Yankees lost out on their prized offseason “possession” Cliff Lee to those damn Phillies, deciding to take $50 million dollars less than what the Yankees offered (which was a 6-year $140-160 million dollar deal).  Now, one […]

No Apologies. Just My Philosophy.

An article by posted on December 14, 2010 0 Comments

I’ve been called a Mets apologist here lately. I don’t really understand that to be honest. What am I apologizing for? Giving a newly hired GM more than 3 months and 0 games played before I judge him? Guilty as Charged I guess. But, while being called an apologist I’ve been accused of just negating […]

Adam Rubin of the ESPN had injury updates on Carlos Beltran and Jason Bay. I’m most encouraged about how optimistic Beltran sounds, “I feel good about it,” Beltran said about the knee woes, which prompted him to be shut down after the Mets’ Sept. 28 game. “What I was feeling last year when I stopped […]

I couldn’t resist commenting on this post by SNY’s Ted Berg who also has a blog at TedQuarters.net. Berg asserts the following, “They’ll also be one of the very oldest teams in baseball, quite likely the oldest. They were the oldest team in baseball last year, and now they’re all a year older — you probably know […]

Is Garza A Better Target Than Grienke For The Mets?

An article by posted on December 14, 2010 0 Comments

I wanted to add a quick update based on some new information from this morning. According to MetsBlog, the Royals are now getting back to teams who have expressed interest in acquiring RHP Zach Greinke, but no word on if that includes the Mets. The Nationals are ‘aggressively pursuing’ a trade for Rays RHP Matt Garza […]

I Have Become Comfortab-Lee Numb

So Cliff Lee is back with the Phillies. What a mind blower this was when the news sunk in after the numbness went away. Even though there were whispers that somehow the Phillies were very much engaged, I refused to believe it and kept hanging onto the slim hope that Lee would re-sign with the […]
