Can The Mets Win With The Wilpons As Owners?

An article by posted on May 25, 2010 0 Comments

When a team in any sport is struggling everyone from the general manager to the coaches/manger to the players take the blame.  In some cases like the Mets it’s true.  Omar Minaya needs to go as does Jerry Manuel and most of his coaching staff.  I know of a certain pitcher making $36 million dollars […]

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 […]

Omar Minaya Should Have Taken His Own Advice

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

As Jim Nabors in “Gomer Pile” used to say:  “Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.”  He could have been pontificating cryptically on the present wafer thin condition of the Mets’ starting rotation.  A concern expressed by many since there was snow on the ground, and ignored by Omar Minaya, but coming to fruition as June bugs and Vultures are circling. […]

We Welcome The Yankees To The 2010 Subways Series At Citi Field

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday I read that perhaps there would be more Yankee Fans at Citi Field tonight than Mets fans.  I suppose that is possible, but I’ll leave it to the management to get those figures.    The Yankees haven’t sold out this year either- they’ve got all those empty seats behind home plate. Not sure whether it’s […]

One Good Thing About Every Mets Game

An article by posted on May 19, 2010 0 Comments

I live in an area where my cable provider doesn’t carry SNY. Where ESPN, FOX and TBS often black out their games and no one around here has the MLB network. I do get NESN, but who wants to hear what the SOX are doing and all those noisy advertisements? For me, this is really […]

Ron Darling: A Worthy Choice For A Noble Task

An article by posted on May 14, 2010 0 Comments

My Baseball Wish… If Bud Selig ever leaves his job as Commissioner of Major League Baseball, I wish that the powers that are behind that throne would send out a contract to Ron Darling offering him the job. A bit of history about Ron – born in Honolulu, Hawaii to a French Canadian Father and […]

Jose, Jose, Jose, Jose… Who Are You?

An article by posted on May 13, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]

A Stunning Look Into The Mets’ Offensive Woes

An article by posted on May 11, 2010 0 Comments

There are many question marks surrounding the Mets’ offense this season. Why isn’t Jose Reyes hitting? Why is David Wright striking out so much? Why can’t Jason Bay get a clutch hit? Where did Jeff Francoeur’s bat disappear to? Why isn’t Luis Castillo on crutches yet? It’s enough to make a Mets fan go crazy […]

Johan Santana: A Solitary Warrior When He Takes The Mound

An article by posted on May 5, 2010 0 Comments

Pitchers are my favorite baseball players, but I came late to Johan Santana. I’m New York oriented, so I barely pay attention to the pitchers who are not playing here – I’m not checking all the baseball results every day in the Daily News. I remember Seaver, Ryan, McGraw from the early Mets and all […]
