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 […]

You Are What Your Record Says You Are!

Ahh… Is there anything more satisfying than waking up the morning after a satisfying victory over a division rival, especially a 9-1 pounding like we gave the Phillies last night… So many things are just working so well for the Mets right now. When will all of this good fortune come to an end? I […]
