One of the more telling signs about the makeup of the current New York Mets, was clearly visible during the Wednesday matinée against the Cardinals.   The Mets may have won the game 9-0, but the Cardinals showed the Mets that they were the team to be reckoned with and not to be messed around […]

The beards must grow on!  After the players vowed not to shave until the Mets reached the .500 mark, the team continued their inconsistent play since their five-game winning streak ended on Thursday, as they were defeated by the Diamondbacks by the final score of 5-2.  The loss dropped the Mets 7½ games behind the […]

Will The Mets Party Like It’s 1987?

An article by posted on July 16, 2009 0 Comments

Much has been made about the 2009 Mets resembling the 1987 team because of the injuries.  The difference is that this year’s injuries have mainly cost the Mets their offensive spark plugs while the 1987 team lost their starting pitchers to various injuries.  I have done extensive research on the 1987 team and I will […]

Can Things Get Better? Maybe

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 […]

We’re “This Close” To Blowing The Whole Thing Up

An article by posted on July 1, 2009 0 Comments

Sometimes desperate times make us think desperate thoughts.  Last night as I watched Johan Santana serve up a change-up to Ryan Braun that, frankly, I could have hit, and then watch the ball and a bunch of Brewers bounce all over the field and across the plate four times, my disbelief turned into realism.  I […]

The Cardinals Are Brilliant, Mets Not So Much

As most of you know, the Cardinals picked up utility infielder Mark DeRosa for reliever Chris Perez and a player to be named later. Of course some of us were shocked that the mets couldn’t up that offer, and there has been plenty of debate as to whether or not trading Bobby Parnell was worth […]

Alright, so I was going to say “I hope everyone’s having a good day”, but watching K-rod walk Mariano last night has sucked the life out of me. I wasn’t favoring the umpire’s strike zone last night, or the ESPN announcers…but that’s not what I’m writing about. I do hope everyone’s having a good day, […]

Mark DeRosa To The Cardinals For A Relief Prospect

An article by posted on June 28, 2009 0 Comments

I guess this is a great example of that old adage, “the rich get richer and the poor get poorer”. The Cleveland Indians have traded infielder Mark DeRosa to the St. Louis Cardinals for reliever Chris Perez and a player to be named later. DeRosa was hitting .270 with 13 homers and 50 RBIs this season […]

What a game my friends! The Mets showed some fight, some heart, and some grit… Call it whatever you want, but they played some of the best baseball of the season in taking three games out of four against the St. Louis Cardinals. In today’s finale, they touched up Cardinals ace, Chris Carpenter for three runs […]
