I’m at the point where I’m tired of writing about how disappointing this 2009 Met season is. So for a change of pace today I would like to take a walk down memory lane and remember the Montreal Expos. The team the Washington Nationals were, before they became the Washington Nationals. When Major League Baseball […]

Going Through The Motions Of A Long Season. But What If…

It’s strange what a difference four months can make. In March, we were filled with optimism. Our big concern coming into 2009 was avoiding a 3rd straight September collapse. We hoped for the best and were anticipating an enjoyable season in our new stadium. Our huge Achilles heel was solved when Omar Minaya went out […]

For the life of me, I just can’t ever figure this team out sometimes. Here we are hanging on the edge of a cliff and praying that we don’t fall into complete obscurity, and yet with help just a phone call away, the Mets refuse to dial 911. During the All Star break, I blogged […]

Okay so it’s not really the conference call from hell, but lately doesn’t it seem like Omar’s become the harbinger of death whenever he addresses the media? Today he had another one of those conference calls where he throws an unexpected curveball at us, or was it a spitter? There are many versions out there […]

An article by posted on July 7, 2009 0 Comments

I know it sounds like bad dialogue out of a comic book or a Michael Bay movie but it is unfortunately true.  Omar over the last couple of years seemed to be the “Teflon GM.”  The last 2 seasons we have witnessed the Mets collapse and miss going into the playoffs by one game.  Omar […]

Earlier this week, Jerry Manuel had a team meeting with his players after the Mets dropped their fifth straight game, a 6-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.  They had been playing sloppy, lethargic baseball and had fallen two games under .500.  In the nearly half hour meeting, Manuel claimed the following: “The whole key was […]
