I have to be honest, I didn’t think GM Omar Minaya had it in him to land Jason Bay.  I was ready to chalk up the 2010 season to rebuilding and maybe finishing in fourth place, but Minaya’s pursuit and subsequent landing of Bay to play left field for the Mets and possibly bat cleanup […]

Last week Mike Vaccaro post a blog on the New York Post website that you can read right here saying that ticket agents from the Mets are questioning the loyalty of fans who have not yet renewed their season tickets for the 2010 season.  I did get a phone call asking me if I was […]

Yesterday, the Mets set aside all the drama of their not-so-hot-stove season for a good cause at their Annual Mets Holiday Party. Jeff Francoeur played the part of St. Nick and he and his fellow Mets elves brought some much needed joy and smiles to school children from all five boros of the city. By all accounts it was a grand […]

Yeah, it’s been difficult being a Mets fan these last few seasons.  But that doesn’t mean we don’t love our team.  Here are a few things I am thankful for as we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow: David Wright, Carlos Beltran and Johan Santana: Yes, Wright forgot how to hit home runs, and the other two […]

Winter season is fast approaching.  Soon, most Mets fans living in the New York metropolitan area will be dealing with bone-chilling temperatures, exorbitant heating bills and slush that chews up and spits out the best winter boots.

It’s not always easy to find things to write about this time of year other than hot stove talk and trade/free agent rumors.  So I decided to look at some of the final stats from 2009.  You know, those dismal numbers that contributed to one of the worst seasons the Mets have had in years.  […]

Carlos Beltran: A True Role Model For Today’s Kids

An article by posted on November 12, 2009 0 Comments

Carlos Beltran has always been a soft-spoken leader, preferring to lead by example rather than through rah-rah histrionics.  Throughout his career, he has been a player that has done everything well on the field.  He can hit for average (.325 in 2009, career .283 hitter), hit for power (franchise record-tying 41 HR in 2006), steal […]

On Sunday, I was surprised to read an article from Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald which started out as a knock on Red Sox centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who has fallen out of his good graces because of his UZR rating. His column takes a surprising twist when he suggests that Carlos Beltran would be a […]

DeWayne Wise will forever be known for the spectacular catch that he made on July 23rd, 2009, which allowed pitcher, Mark Buehrle, to earn the second no-hitter of his career. Despite enjoying two of the best years in his career in Chicago, Wise declined an assignment to the club’s Triple-A affiliate recently and elected to […]

Mets Aren’t The Only Team That Peaked In 2006

An article by posted on October 19, 2009 0 Comments

Three years ago today, Carlos Beltran got a good look at an Adam Wainwright curveball and the Cardinals went on to the 2006 World Series.  (I have spared my fellow Mets fans from having to see that picture by showing you a photo of Beltran hitting a home run against the Cardinals instead.)  After that […]
