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 planning on buying the ticket package, but my loyalty to the team was not questioned by that particular agent, having […]
Marty Noble of MLB.com, reported late last night that free agent first baseman Carlos Delgado has postponed his decision to begin playing baseball due to an undisclosed setback. The Mets’ interest in Carlos Delgado, an interest that was not shared by all members of the club hierarchy after the season, may begin to wane now that the free agent has postponed his return to active baseball. Two members of the Mets’ staff have said that […]
According to a report in today’s New York Daily News, New York Mets shortstop, Jose Reyes, visited a scrutinized doctor, Dr. Tony Galea, numerous times. Galea is a physician based out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, who is noted for using a technique called blood spinning to help athletes recover from injuries more quickly. As described in the article, the blood spinning technique, “involves putting a patient’s blood in a centrifuge to separate the platelets then […]
Like all loyal and lifetime New York Mets Fans 2009 will certainly go down in Mets history as the most injury plagued season in their entire 48 seasons of National League play. Everybody knows that every member of “The Core” players were down for various amounts of time during the season and if the core played together for ten games all season long that would probably be an exaggeration. Dirt was thrown at everybody from […]
My blood boils with each passing day of the Hot Stove season. While the Mets keep signing guys like Alex Cora, Chris Coste and Henry Blanco, the Phillies, Yankees, Red Sox and even Mariners keep making big moves involving the likes of Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, Curtis Granderson and probably John Lackey. I knew the Mets wouldn’t be players in the offseason, because Omar Minaya and the Wilpons are, quite frankly, morons. They have failed […]
When yesterday’s midnight deadline finally came and went, the Mets decided to stand pat and did not offer arbitration to any of their six remaining free agents. Carlos Delgado and Fernando Tatis, both Type B free agents, are not totally out of the picture yet, and the Mets could still opt to bring both of them back. As much as I like both of them, I just think it’s time to move on and change […]
Last week, Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post told me that the Mets are not looking to block the arrival of first base prospect Ike Davis because they view him as an All Star first baseman waiting in the wings. Judging by what we’ve seen and heard from several scouts and MLB executives, maybe the hype on Davis is somewhat justified. I sincerely hope it is, although I personally would like to see Davis continue […]
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. And while we all know too well about the power outage that had Daniel Murphy lead the team with 12 […]
Disclaimer: I’m not talking statistically, but the story is the same. Erudite baseball fans know Wally Pipp as the possessor of the most famous headache in baseball history. In his own words, “the most expensive asprins in history.” On June 2, 1925, Pipp told Yankee manager Miller Huggins he needed to sit that day out… …Rookie Lou Gehrig took his place, Pipp lost the job he had held since 1915 and at season’s end was […]
