I’m a fan of history. Whether it be baseball or Mets history or the history of our nation, I love how history provides us with a template for the future. We tend to have short attention spans in this new media digital age. We tweet, surf the web and instant message while texting all at […]

Omar Minaya became the General Manager at the end of the 2004 season.  Since then the Mets have mostly been quiet when it comes to the trade deadline.  Except for 2006, when Duaner Sanchez went for a cab ride, injured his shoulder, forcing Omar to make a trade with the Pirates for Oliver Perez (thanks […]

Strasburg Making Me Nervous

An article by posted on March 10, 2010 0 Comments

Seeing highlights of Nationals’ pitcher Stephen Strasburg from yesterday’s game against Detroit bummed me out just a little.  I love watching great pitchers do their thing, and it’s especially exciting to see young pitchers like Strasburg break into the bigs and blow hitters away.  But I’m just a bit bummed out, because he’s in the […]

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 […]

As we all sit back and wait for Omar Minaya to make that blockbuster trade or signing, only to see him sign more mediocre players, reality is starting to set in.  If this hot stove pattern continues — and I’m sorry, Minaya has given us no reason to believe otherwise – the Mets in 2010 […]

The World Series Ed Leyro wrote about yesterday is likely to come to fruition—Yankees/Phillies, unless the Dodgers and/or Angels sweep the remaining games.  And the way New York and Philly are playing, that’s about as likely as snow in the Caribbean.  So we’re going to have to face facts here.  Yes, a Yankees/Phillies series is […]
