Will Mets Regret That Six Year Johan Deal?

An article by posted on September 13, 2010 0 Comments

What was written then is coming to pass, the back end of Johan Santana’s contract appears to be choking the Mets. It was widely written, by me and others, that six years is too long a deal for a pitcher who had already accumulated a lot of innings. Santana’s velocity has been in decline, and […]

Reyes and Wright Are No Longer Mets Cornerstones?

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

 I’ve always been a big fan of Joel Sherman of the NY Post, but I think he really must have been in the midst of a bad hair day when he penned this piece this morning. I warn you that this falls into the category of Wright and Reyes bashing, so if you want to […]

Jose, Jose, Jose, Jose… Who Are You?

So I sat down with the intention of writing an article about Jose Reyes.  I wanted to discuss how high my expectations where of him and how he never became the player everyone expected him too and probably never will. I looked at some statistical analysis and I have to say….I was a bit surprised.  Jose […]

Clutch or Not, This Team Can Fight

An article by posted on May 12, 2010 0 Comments

One of the positive things that I have been seeing from this team in the past few weeks is the way they seem to always fight. At times a hit with a runner on base seems to be too tall of an order and it can be very frustrating for a fan. However, when at […]

Look!  Up in the sky!  It’s a bird!  It’s a plane!  It’s Supe…No, wait.  It’s just another home run given up by Johan Santana. I’ve been reading many articles and blogs on numerous sites, including this one, on who’s to blame for Johan Santana’s poor performance against the Phillies on Sunday night.  It was surely […]

This morning one of our readers commented about possibly making a trade for Roy Oswalt of the Astros. And although I totally disagreed with having to give up Mike Pelfrey for him, the thought of adding Oswalt seemed quite intriguing. 1. Johan Santana 2. Roy Oswalt 3. Mike Pelfrey 4. Oliver Perez 5. Jon Niese […]

The Mets have had a number of fiery players over the years.  With their performances on the field and behind the scenes in the clubhouse, these players have carried the Mets beyond the team’s expectations. From Tug McGraw’s “Ya Gotta Believe” that gave hope and fired up the 1973 Mets on their way to the […]

The Dawn Is Coming Met Fans

An article by posted on March 16, 2010 0 Comments

The New York Mets have seen darker days than this; the midnight massacre in which Tom Seaver was traded away comes to mind.  Another bad time for the Mets and their fan base was in the early 90’s when the Mets had the worst team that money could buy followed by the failure of Generation […]

Go East, Young Men!

An article by posted on March 4, 2010 0 Comments

Much of what dominates Mets talk and is bandied about is whether the Mets will have a successful season in ’10. Can Big Pelf live up to his “potential”? (Don’t you just love that word?) Will Reyes be his old self or even better? Can the #3 through #5 pitchers keep us in games consistently? […]

Mental Hurdle In Philadelphia, Major Challenge Facing Mets Squad

If you’re as geographically fortunate as me and spend 5-6 months annually battling numb fingertips, sub-zero temperatures and a deprivation of sports involving grass, this is an adrenaline inducing time of year.  Signs of spring are bountiful, undeniably so;  It’s time to put your hockey sticks and snowboards away and yank out that decrepit, oil […]
