Do I Believe In Comebacks? It’s Getting Harder…

An article by posted on March 23, 2010 0 Comments

We now return you to ‘As The World Turns‘… That should be what each return from a commercial on SNY and WPIX says this exhibition season… I am becoming more concerned as the Mets continue to have more questions than answers each day spring training continues. What drama… We should be getting closer to making cuts. Instead the […]

By now you all know my stance on simply handing 20-year old Mejia a bullpen spot, especially when it means passing on one of Hisanori Takahashi, Kiko Calero, Nelson Figueroa or even Fernando Nieve who are all performing better than him.

We all know the Mets added a power bat in Jason Bay, are still dealing with injuries/medical issues to key players like Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran, and have huge holes in the starting rotation.  But I haven’t heard as much talk about the bullpen.  A year ago, almost to the day, I wrote a […]

I’ve seen enough. If Omar Minaya wants to keep saying that Bobby Parnell is untouchable, even in a deal for Roy Halladay, go ahead and let him. First of all I hate that word, and secondly no other team throws that word around more than the Mets. You want to know who some real untouchables […]

If the Mets wanted to exact a measure of revenge against the Cubs for their role in keeping them out of the playoffs last season, they sure aren’t going about it the right way.  Fernando Tatis became the sixteenth Met to run his way into a crucial out at home plate when he ignored the […]
