Should Jenrry Mejia Be The Future Closer For The Mets?

An article by posted on July 20, 2010 0 Comments

I really try to avoid the pitfalls of letting a game or two get to me. However in lieu of Sunday’s implosion of Frankie Rodriguez, his latest in a line of many, my jerking knee isn’t bothering my conscience quite as much as I thought it would. Earlier this year Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel fawned […]

With last night’s 2-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants, the Mets now find themselves five games back of the front-running Atlanta Braves. It looks like a fight to the finish may be shaping up for the NL Wild Card this season. Three NL East teams currently occupy the top seven spots for the Wild Card; […]

There’s No “I” In Team, But There Is An “I” In Whining

Just last week my boss called me into his office and pointed out a mistake I had made. It was something stupid on my part. He gave me an FYI, we talked about it for a couple minutes and I went back to my desk. However, when I returned, I didn’t have to listen to […]

Pitching K-Rod In The Eighth Was Fine With Me

You win some and you lose some, and then there’s games like last night. When Hanley Ramirez launched that grand slam to put the Marlins ahead 4-3, I swear I had a vision of it seconds before it played out on my TV screen. It just seems that whenever the opposition loads the bases against […]

Why I Don’t Trust Jerry in a Pennant Race

An article by posted on June 30, 2010 0 Comments

I have a feeling that I would really enjoy having a philosophical conversation about life with Jerry Manuel. A conversation about baseball strategy? Not so much. Jerry says and does a lot of incomprehensible things when it comes to running a baseball team and last night’s game against the Marlins took the cake. While I […]

Mets Should Act On Oswalt

Just because Roy Oswalt told a friend he would accept a trade to the Mets doesn’t mean he’s in Manhattan on the off-day looking at apartments. Depending on what “friend” you talk to, Oswalt would also accept trades to Philadelphia, St. Louis, the Yankees and Washington Nationals. However, if it means getting out of Houston, […]

  “We’re playing pretty good baseball. I knew once those middle of the order guys hit, it could be a lot of fun. The good thing is we have won games when they haven’t hit; now that they’re hitting it’s more of an all inclusive thing.”  ~  Jerry Manuel   “It’s great to see that everybody […]

To Swagger Or Not To Swagger? That Is The Question

An article by posted on April 28, 2010 0 Comments

Over the past few heartbreaking seasons we have spent much time on this site debating the importance of ‘swagger.’ I have personally been a huge advocate of this. Some have agreed. Some have disagreed. There is something to be said about walking onto a field and displaying a sense of confidence. As our Mets now […]

The Mets Gave Me Some Tickets To Ride

An article by posted on April 10, 2010 0 Comments

For years my brother and I had been seven pack ticket holders over at Shea Stadium. I was upset last year when the Mets masterminds decided to do away with seven packs, and only offer a fifteen game package. For me fifteen games just wasn’t doable, not only from a financial point, but for family […]

Yesterday was a big day for 20-year old RHP Jenrry Mejia as he continues to move closer toward locking up a spot in the 2010 Mets bullpen. He passed his test of working on back-to-back days with flying colors. The young phenom pitched a perfect inning of relief in the Mets’ 7-6 exhibition victory over the Braves, […]
