For the past four years, Dan Warthen has been at the reins for the pitching staff of the New York Mets…. and that needs to change.

Alderson Not Expecting Much From Johan Santana in 2011

The New York Mets have been without their ace Johan Santana the entire season and the rotation has held their own, to say the least. With speculation surrounding a Santana return possibly in mid-August, which still remains a long shot at this point, many have wondered just who may be the odd man out in […]

Dillon Gee – The Poor-er Man’s Rick Reed

The more I see Dillon Gee pitch, the more I see shades of Rick Reed and that’s more than fine by me. In the mid to late 90’s, Rick Reed was given another baseball life by Steve Phillips and the New York Mets. Technically it was a 5th chance considering he was passed up by […]

When Will Dan Warthen And The Mets Part Ways?

I know it’s only April, we’re less than 20 games into a very long 2011 season, but so far the pitching has been bad. Actually bad is an understatement, the pitching from the entire staff has been downright awful! There is no way to sugarcoat it, the team as of this writing is currently 5-13, […]

The Mets make 2 important changes by firing Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel.  Not much has happened since.  As the Mets take their sweet time looking for a general manager there are still a lot more changes that need to be made. 1) The Ballpark: Citi Field is just too big! I know we’ve been […]

John Maine The New Tenant Of The Doghouse

An article by posted on June 22, 2010 0 Comments

It looks like John Maine’s career with the New York Mets and perhaps in baseball is close to coming to an end.  The last 2 seasons have been a disaster for the pitcher.  I have defended him many times on this site and others.  I don’t exactly know why but I’ve always had a bit […]

Mets Beat Yankees But That’s Hardly Enough

An article by posted on May 24, 2010 0 Comments

So many indelible moments in life seem to occur in slow motion, sometimes both the good and bad moments. The 2010 Mets season for me has been just that, a slow motion Shakespearean tragedy. Perhaps to some a typically bad CW network soap opera. It’s your choice. The Mets are in my opinion, just about beyond […]

John Maine Episode Is Just Another Amazin’ Mess

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets ended a lousy 2-6 road trip with a 10-7 win over the Nationals yesterday. That’s the good news, but leave it to the Mets to upstage a solid pitching effort by a Raul Valdes and a ten run offensive outburst by conjuring up yet another public relations nightmare. After the drama that unfolded when Jerry […]
