If you were watching today’s game when Gary Sheffield left the bases with apparent leg stiffness, Gary and Ron were reciting the litany of Met injuries, and having trouble remembering all of them.

When Tom Becomes Pessimistic…..

We all have them—friends who are overly optimistic, even when things with our Mets look as grim as they possibly can.  To put this in perspective, during Game 6 of the ’86 World Series, I was hanging out with a bunch of friends in a bar on Long Island.  Among those friends was my buddy […]

When everyone went down on the disabled list we were all waiting on the edge of our seats until after the All-Star break because that’s when Omar and the Mets promised Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes would return and turn the season around.  Today is August 4, 2009 and Beltran and Reyes are not back.

Last night, while watching the Mets go down to the Braves 5-3, Gary Cohen repeated the score as the Mets headed into the ninth inning.  Out of the blue, Keith Hernandez wondered out loud when was the last time the Mets hit a three run homer. Neither he or Gary could remember when, and nor could […]

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 […]

First Half – Half Full Or Half Empty?

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 […]
