Hideki Matsui To The Mets? Just Say No!

An article by posted on October 10, 2009 0 Comments

In Newsday, David Lennon posted an interesting article about the possibility of Godzilla coming ashore in Flushing next season.  I hope Omar Minaya doesn’t read that article.  We don’t need him to get inspired by it. The Mets need a power hitter who can play left field or first base.  Hideki Matsui hit 28 HR […]

Here is some background about me in regards to Daniel Murphy. I fully admit I am a “mark,” for him. In August of 2008, I went on mets.com and bought a blue Mets t-shirt with Mr. Met on the front and Murphy’s name and number on the back. It’s a pretty awesome shirt to be […]

A met fan can only hope that when he’s praising a player for performance in September, it’s because he played well in the games that mattered. Obviously, that’s not the case. However, I still feel the need remains to identify and praise the players that showcase their skills over an extended period of time. It’s […]

It’s Going to Take a Few Moves

An article by posted on October 6, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

Looking Out For Number 2

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 […]

Do You Ever Wonder?

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 […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! 9/13-9/20

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 […]

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 […]

Daniel Murphy Is Just A Placeholder For Ike Davis

An article by posted on September 19, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

Daniel Murphy To The Minors In 2010?

An article by posted on September 14, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]
