Can Things Get Better? Maybe

An article by posted on July 15, 2009 0 Comments

For as bad as the Mets have looked at times this season (and I have advocated blowing up the team or just not paying attention to them anymore), it’s almost miraculous that they are not worse than three games under .500 and 6 ½ games out of first place.  When you think about the lousy […]

The Morning Grind – Bullpen Goes Ka-Putz, Now What?

An article by posted on June 2, 2009 0 Comments

The Morning Grind is the place for Mets fans to sound off on anything and everything! An open thread for ranting and raving about the Mets, completely raw and uncensored! That eighth inning was hard to watch last night. I think we have our new Heilman… or Mota… or you get the idea… After a bad outing […]

Two days after shelving J.J. Putz for a few days with a bone spur in his right elbow, the Mets got some good news regarding their former closer Billy Wagner who is rehabbing in Florida. Adam Rubin of the Daily News reports, Billy Wagner has returned to Port St. Lucie after a month-long moratorium on throwing […]

Billy Wagner is scheduled to be back in the bullpen by August. If he’s even close to his old self, Jerry Manuel might have the luxury of having three closers — albeit three very high-priced closers, but three closers.

Gary Sheffield is expected to start in right field for the first time this season. He enters the game with 499 homeruns and may mark the first memorable Mets moment at Citi Field if he hits number 500 at Shea tonight. I’m not exactly sure how to feel about that, but if it’s a game […]

An article by posted on April 9, 2009 0 Comments

Today before the game, Jerry Manuel said that Frankie Rodriguez would get the day off after a tough workload in last nights game. J.J. Putz will be called on to close the game if necessary. I’m thinking that Putz will pick up about 10 saves this season. Luis Castillo is sitting this one out, and […]

Hot as Fire or Not at All?

An article by posted on June 7, 2008

Welcome Mets fans to another installment of Hot or Not. The Mets looked as if they were on their way back against San Fransisco, but they have since taken a few steps back against the Padres. They’ve only scored two runs in their last 23 innings, with Scott Schoeneweis and Johan Santana charged with losses. […]

All the Fans Stay True to the Orange and Blue

An article by posted on May 23, 2008

"The Mets have shown me more ways to lose than I even knew existed." Casey Stenegel said this more than 40 years ago, and it rings so true today. This season, we’ve probably seen the Mets lose in every possible way, plus a few additions. The Mets are currently going through a rough patch. In April, we weren’t really worried […]
