I Don’t Trust Omar Minaya Anymore

An article by posted on July 23, 2009 0 Comments

I’ve supported Omar Minaya ever since he first took the reins of the New York Mets after the 2004 season. He took an organization that was in complete disarray and put the Mets back on the map. He said that the Mets would be rebuilt and taken seriously, and he gave us his five year […]

You may remember that back on April 19th, the Mets purchased the contract of pitcher Nelson Figueroa from Buffalo to make a start against the Milwaukee Brewers. Figgy pitched a decent game allowing just three runs, but the Mets lost 4-2. Immediately after the game, the Mets designated Figueroa for assignment and came close to […]

Johan Santana was absolutely brilliant last night… no not on the mound, but at the plate. His RBI double in the sixth inning proved to be the difference maker as the Mets topped the Phillies 6-5. On the mound it was a totally  different story as Santana served up four homers, but on this damp […]

An article by posted on May 24, 2009 0 Comments

I thought the Mets made a mistake when they decided they would put Bobby Parnell in the bullpen to start the season. Boy was I ever wrong! The more I see of this kid, the more there is to like. I’ve heard his name in trade rumors all off season long and even this season […]

The Maine Thing Is, Mets Win

An article by posted on May 15, 2009 0 Comments

I know what they say – you win as a team and you lose as a team. And trust me, I’m the last one to put an individual player’s statistics and milestones ahead of what’s best for the team. However, I feel that Major League Baseball needs to do something to properly reward a starting pitcher for a […]

An article by posted on May 6, 2009 0 Comments

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.

What’s Next For Ollie?

An article by posted on May 5, 2009 0 Comments

Yesterday the Mets finally did something about Oliver Perez.  They did not send him to the minors, nor did they put him on the disabled list after Ollie announced Sunday that his knee has been “injured” since the start of the season.  Instead Fred Wilpon and Omar Minaya flew down to Atlanta and decided along […]

Just another loss. Stop overdramatizing! Right? Lest, I incur the wrath of amateur statisticians, let me just say the BP is fantastic, league-leading in fact, but it just so happens they’ve blown two good starting performances in two days. No need to worry, right? I mean, the BP is fixed—the first three weeks of April […]
