There’s a big hole in the Mets lineup left by the absence of Carlos Delgado.  Which is surprising considering that sparkplug/leadoff man and all star SS – Jose Reyes has also been missing – however his replacement – Alex Cora has actually played reasonably well. The big dropoff in production has been our platoon of […]

The Mets have announced their lineup for tonight’s game against the Phillies and it’s the same lineup that won the game for us last night.  I’m not concerned about that, they won the game but there are two players who will be sitting on the bench tonight that do concern me: Daniel Murphy and Fernando […]

This is not a knee jerk reaction after last night’s horrible defeat.  Last season after Willie Randolph was fired and Jerry Manuel took over I thought it was the right decision.  As the Mets tried to make the playoffs last season I was really impressed with Jerry Manuel.  When the Mets lost on the last […]

I have to say that I was rather disappointed with this road trip. I know! I know! They lost one-fourth of their roster. Still, I feel the Mets should’ve really gotten on a winning streak here. They did well against the San Francisco Giants. I’ll take three out of four from them. They were up […]

This was actually submitted this morning, and was scheduled in our queue for tonight, hence the title. JD I for one have seen enough of Daniel Murphy in left field.

An article by posted on May 18, 2009 0 Comments

First, we should all be happy today because the Mets took three out of four games against the Giants, including a big win against Tim Lincecum and another win on a night that Johan Santana clearly didn’t have it. With that said, I’m frustrated that we didn’t walk out of there with a four game […]
