An article by posted on June 23, 2010 0 Comments

Many Mets fans on this site, spent a great deal of time debating whether outfielder Angel Pagan was capable of playing leftfield everyday or if he was nothing more than a good fourth outfielder. We had posts that wanted him as the leftfielder so that we could go after a starting pitcher over the winter […]

An Under-appreciated All-Star: A Case For Carlos Beltran

An article by posted on June 22, 2010 0 Comments

On October 19th, 2006 Adam Wainwright’s knee-buckling curve ball did more than strike out Carlos Beltran to end the NLCS and shatter the Mets hopes of going to the World Series.  Once Tim Welke called strike 3, opinions of Carlos in the minds of Met fans would be altered.  That one at-bat, that one pitch, may have set the groundwork for  Beltran becoming on of […]

It’s that time again – I happen to love the Subway Series, but I know there are others who don’t.  Anyway we’ve reached the weekend and it’s the second act of the Subway Series for 2010. The Mets go to the Big City for the games at the new Yankee Stadium on Friday night, and […]

Most of you who read my words on here each week know that I have a healthy dose of skepticism and cynicism when it comes to these Mets.  But while I’m not about to start sending “Ya gotta believe!” messages like one of my buddies does even when the Mets lose a bunch of games […]

Now that the Mets have drafted UNC product Matt Harvey with the seventh overall pick in the draft, the task at hand now becomes signing him before the August 16th deadline. I was a little shocked by the Mets selection, not because he was reach or not as talented as those they passsed on, but I didn’t […]

After an almost full-season furlough, Mets fans eagerly anticipated Jose Reyes’ return to the Mets lineup on Saturday, April 10, of this year.  It sounded and seemed as though the Mets themselves needed that shock of adrenaline that only Reyes could provide.  The infectious style of play by the “catalyst,” as he has been called […]

The 18-16 Mets currently find themselves in third place, two and a half games behind the first place Philadelphia Phillies. Back in March, while the Mets were getting ready to close out Port St. Lucie and head north for Opening Day, I felt that the Mets stood a good chance of going to the post season […]

After 28 Games Mets Fans Remain Hopeful

An article by posted on May 7, 2010 0 Comments

On the one hand, I’m by no means convinced that the Mets are a legitimate playoff contender.  On the other hand they are much improved in virtually every facet of their game.  And that combined with relative parity in the National League certainly should keep the Mets in the Wild Card race as summer approaches.  […]
