Adam Rubin of the Daily News was kind enough to answer a few questions for Mets Merized Online. It’s been a hectic week as far as Mets news goes, and I wanted to get his thoughts on the Halladay situation, Carlos Beltran’s bone bruise, the shift in our top prospects, and other Mets concerns. 1.

Random Stats and Thoughts

An article by posted on July 22, 2009 0 Comments

We can beat a dead horse all day long about how bad and disappointing the 2009 Mets have become, and how we’re going to have to endure a few months of meaningless baseball now that all hope for the playoffs is basically lost.  So instead of beating the horse, I’m just going to point out […]

Mets On The Verge Of Double Digits In ‘Games Back’

An article by posted on July 20, 2009 0 Comments

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at the standings anymore. Four games out was cute. You want to give us a little something to be anxious about and keep us in the game – fine. Seven games out was worrisome. You want to test our loyalty and make us sweat – okay. But the fact […]

Okay so it’s not really the conference call from hell, but lately doesn’t it seem like Omar’s become the harbinger of death whenever he addresses the media? Today he had another one of those conference calls where he throws an unexpected curveball at us, or was it a spitter? There are many versions out there […]

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 […]

For Whom The “Bell” Tolls

What a punkass Heath Bell turned out to be. I’m not saying that because the National League lost to the junior circuit (Again!), but because I just read his post game comments and it showed me what a jerk he really is. For those of you who made the wise decision not to watch last night’s […]

Can Things Get Better? Maybe

An article by posted on July 15, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

First Half – Half Full Or Half Empty?

An article by posted on July 13, 2009 0 Comments

Nobody could have predicted the first half that the Mets have just completed, after an off season that fueled such high expectations. Sure there were some questions going into the season, but every team has questions, building a team is not an exact science. The Mets’ biggest off-season priority was to revamp the bullpen, and […]
