We can debate all day and year long whether or not the Mets’ awful season is the fault of Jerry Manuel, Omar Minaya, the Wilpons, or the Injuries, or a combination of all of them. But there is one thing I want to see happen this off-season. Omar needs to make more than one big move this time to improve the club. Two years ago he pulled the trigger on bringing in Johan Santana, and […]
After the 2007 season, the Mets faithful were thrilled by the acquisition of ace Johan Santana. Despite only poor team performances since his acquisition, Johan’s contributions to the team have been unending and undeniably huge, highlighted by his memorable effort on the 2nd-to-last-day of the 2008 season and the last game at Shea Stadium that I choose to remember. Last season, the Mets reeled in K-Rod who, while he’s had his moments of faltering, has […]
Do you ever wonder what guys like Johan Santana think after suffering through two straight non-playoff years? Last year the Mets collapsed in September for the second straight year, and the Twins were a one-game playoff away from reaching the postseason. This year the Twins are battling the Tigers for the AL Central crown while the Mets have been out of the race since July. I know Johan likes the bright lights, but let’s face […]
And the season continues to wind down. It’s odd, I remember looking at the Knicks as their season would wind down and my first thought would be “Don’t win! You can’t make the playoffs, get a better draft pick!” Obviously that’s selfish and random, but it’s a thought that crosses the minds of a few fans. The Mets do have a guaranteed protected pick so we’ll see what comes of that. I would prefer they […]
It was inevitable, but after some tense moments in the ninth inning that required the help of Francisco Rodriguez, the Mets finally did it. They clinched fourth place in the National League East with their 6-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. There were no mounted police present, making it easy for jubilant fans to run across the field. Of course, those jubilant fans were just kids running the bases after the game in the Mr. […]
Jerry Manuel and Frankie Rodriguez were both very upset after the Mets fell to the Braves 5-4 last night at Turner Field. First baseman Daniel Murphy made a costly error that allowed the winning run to score, this after a mental gaffe turned a sharp grounder down the line into a double. With the Mets up 5-4 and closer Frankie Rodriguez on the mound, Garret Anderson hit a hard ground ball over the first-base bag, directly past Murphy, who […]
Jon Heyman of SI.com mentioned something over the weekend regarding Mets first baseman Daniel Murphy that caught my attention. While reporting that Carlos Delgado may still attempt to comeback this season, if only for just one or two weeks, he also throws this in, The Mets have thought about possibly bringing back Delgado on an incentive-laden deal, according to sources. While Daniel Murphy is showing signs of power in recent days, the Mets also haven’t ruled out […]
A few weeks back I wrote a column and I briefly mentioned the fact that I believe Nick Johnson would be a great fit for the Mets in 2010. I’m going to take that further today. Assume for a second that everybody’s fantasy of acquiring Prince Fielder or Adrian Gonzalez is not going to happen. Even if it does happen, the price tag for both of them will be astronomical. To me that leaves the […]
It was the Murph and Pelf Show at Citi Field on Sunday as Daniel Murphy provided the offense and Mike Pelfrey gave the Mets (and himself) a much-needed strong pitching performance. The one-two punch lifted the Mets to a 4-2 victory over the Cubs and gave them their first series victory in five weeks. The game started out with Mike Pelfrey and Cubs’ pitcher Randy Wells trading quick innings and economizing their pitch counts. It […]
