A long long time ago, in a stadium directly across from Citi Field was a place where fans were born and memories were created. That was before the dark times – BEFORE THE MADOFF… It is funny when you watch one of your all time favorite movies that you can attribute certain quotes to specific areas of your favorite baseball team. Take for example this little nugget of jubilation: You see what I told you […]
As you’ve no doubt heard by now, LaTroy Hawkins signed with the Colorado Rockies for $2.25 MM earlier in the week — and according to reports, the Mets low-balled him. While I can understand not wanting to invest in a player of his age, the fact that the Mets didn’t match $2.25 million is somewhat telling. Of course, he has almost no opportunity to close here anymore considering Bobby Parnell should return healthy, so it makes sense that he […]
Just in case you didn’t believe it when Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort swore he wouldn’t trade Troy Tulowitzki two weeks ago… And just in case you thought Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd was blowing smoke in September when he responded, “no chance” after he was asked if he would trade Tulo… Rockies Senior VP Bill Geivett completed the trifecta today on MLB Network when he told Jim Bowden unambiguously that the three-time All Star shortstop wasn’t going […]
Alright boys and girls, it’s time for us to do something that us Mets fans haven’t done in a while – PUT ON YOUR BIG BOY PANTS AND GROW UP !!!! I know what you are thinking – “is he off the Prozac?” or “Who gave him the double caramel macchiato shot from Starbucks again?” The answer is neither. My outburst is derived from the fans that are pissing and moaning that this team is […]
The Mets have signed journeyman starter Aaron Harang to a minor league deal. He will report to Triple-A Las Vegas. Harang, 35, had a 5.76 ERA with 6.5 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9 in 22 starts this season. The Dodgers traded Aaron Harang early in the season to the Colorado Rockies — who flipped him to the Seattle Mariners. The New York Mets will be his fourth organization in 2013 alone. The 6’7” right-hander has pitched for […]
Sometimes I wonder why I even read some Mets related posts on Facebook or Twitter. If you were to gauge the Mets fan base on the way General Manager, Sandy Alderson has run the team, well you would think that this team was based out of Miami. Yes, I realize that the lunatic fringe faction of our fan base ( a small – yet loud minority) will never be satisfied with Alderson until this team […]
In a major blow to an already battered roster, the Mets lost their closer, Bobby Parnell, and relief pitcher Josh Edgin to injury within one week of each other. With the later addition of all-star third baseman David Wright to the disabled list, the Mets appeared to be on the brink of destruction. What else would you expect? A team that fails to play .500 ball when completely healthy was playing without one of their top […]
Justin Turner, Josh Satin and Mr. Met took the field in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn yesterday afternoon along with 50 campers from the YMCA Jr. Mets Camp presented by Citi, and it was difficult to tell who was having more fun; the kids, or the Mets. The clinic took place at Green Central Knoll Park, marking the third event in this year’s series of programs with the Jr. Mets Camp, in which over 1,000 […]
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York is reporting that the Mets will use a four-man rotation this week and that Aaron Laffey will make his next start next Tuesday, a week from tomorrow, against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. Essentially, the team will be using the off-day on Thursday to skip the fifth spot in the rotation this week. “Laffey is going to be the guy until we figure out when Shaun’s going to be back, or […]
