As Sandy Alderson and the Mets continue to wait and see how cheaply they can sign free agents, other teams are signing players at a brisk pace. I understand they couldn’t realistically be buyers for Cliff Lee or Carl Crawford, and without a doubt the Mets were right not to even come close to offering Jason Werth the kind of contract he signed with the Nationals. I also understand that the Wilpons refuse to pay a […]
Opening Day is 3 ½ months away and we all know what to expect in 2011. Not a damn thing. Sandy Alderson has stated that it will be a season to observe, to listen and learn, and rebuild for the future. Safe to say not many of us have hope for next season. It’s December 2010 and already we have set our sights on Opening Day 2012, a mere 480 days away. As we prepare ourselves […]
I was contemplating whether or not to write this and perhaps allow our collective wounds time to heal regarding Cliff Lee’s decision to rejoin the Phillies. First off I’ll be up front and tell you that at many points this past season, I was clamoring for the Mets to land Lee. I knew it would be all but impossible but call me crazy; I wanted to test my own ability to believe. I didn’t favor […]
As we know the Mets don’t have much money to spend this off season. Whether it’s only five million dollars or a little more Alderson is allowed to spend there will not be any top free agent signings this year. No Cliff Lee or Carl Crawford next season. With signing 2nd or possibly 3rd tier free agents it might not be fun watching the Mets every day next year. There will be plenty of stories […]
The San Francisco Giants are champions of the world after knocking out the Texas Rangers 3-1 to win the World Series 4-1. For the second time in the series, San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum outdueled the Texas ace Cliff Lee. The Giants took the lead on a 3-Run HR by Edgar Renteria off Lee in the 7th. Nelson Cruz answered with a solo shot in the bottom of the 7th off Lincecum. Lincecum was dominant […]
THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT! When Brian Wilson (and his beard) struck out Ryan Howard looking to end the Phillies season, it set up a date in the World Series with the American League champion Texas Rangers starting this Wednesday in San Francisco. Texas Rangers The Rangers rotation is anchored by mid-season acquisition, and playoff ace, Cliff Lee. After Lee is CJ Wilson, Colby Lewis, and Tommy Hunter. Lewis has a 1.45 playoff ERA with […]
Everyone expects that next season Cliff Lee will be pitching a lot more in Yankee stadium, as the ace of their rotation. And while it’s definitely a strong possibility, I’m not willing to write off the possibility that he can still remain with the Rangers or that the Mets are a contender for his services. Watching Cliff Lee dominate the Yankees last night was pure magic. I’m living my Mets dreams through the Texas Rangers right now and […]
Before I begin this week’s post I apologize for my post last week on Omar Minaya and Roy Halladay. When writing my post last week I had no intention to hurt anyone or insult anyone’s nationality. I promise in the future to be more careful with my posts. This is not a post bashing Johan Santana. I know early on in the 2010 season I wrote that Santana was done and I admit I was wrong. […]
In 2007, 2008 and now in 2010 the Mets needed to upgrade their team during the season by making a trade. In 2007 the Mets needed to add a starter to the rotation. They did not add a starting pitcher and wound up having an epic collapse. The Mets didn’t end making trade as Omar would go onto say “nothing really made sense.” The 2008 New York Mets desperately needed an arm in the bullpen, […]
