Conspiracy Theorists

An article by posted on September 9, 2010 0 Comments

This latest media hub bub regarding three Mets really has my blood boiling.  No, not about what you think – the fact that it’s a story to begin with, that’s what gets me.  I guess the Mets having another subpar season isn’t enough for local sports writers these days and adding fuel to the Mets […]

Are The Mets Worried About Empty Seats In September?

An article by posted on September 8, 2010 0 Comments

I have been a Mets mini-plan holder since 2002.  When the Mets moved into Citi Field last year, I decided to purchase a second mini-plan.  I will not be renewing my seats next year because my better half has a full season ticket package and we plan on splitting those tickets in 2011. When I […]

In Defense Of The Wilpons: Are The Mets Heading To The Junkyard?

An article by posted on September 8, 2010 0 Comments

Think back to that first car you owned. Wont it always have a special place in your heart? Remember all the great memories and the feeling of freedom that came with it. Cruising around with your friends, stereo blasting. Driving a bit too fast, too reckless. Finding that one special dimly lit place to make […]

Most Mets Fans Gave Francoeur A Proper Sendoff

An article by posted on September 2, 2010 0 Comments

During last night’s Mets broadcast, I thought the best part of a dismal game was when Gary, Keith and Ron found themselves stumbling for words when the results of the Toyota Text Poll was revealed. Here is a screen shot courtesy of Amazin Avenue. Keith Hernandez spoke out first and said “Hmmm”. Gary Cohen and Ron Darling were a little more […]

Pain Management: Finding A Successor For Jerry Manuel

An article by posted on August 31, 2010 0 Comments

As we await the inevitable firing of Mets manager Jerry Manuel, there’s no shortage of names in the Mets blogosphere for potential candidates. But much of what I’m hearing seems more like reliving the “good old days” rather than assuring we get the best person for the job. Ask most Mets fans and read most […]

My Obligatory Lucas Duda Post

An article by posted on August 28, 2010 0 Comments

With the unsurprising news that Mets top outfield prospect Fernando Martinez is once again ailing on the DL, I’m losing patience in that entire situation. The teenage hitting machine has failed to show me any skills worthy of his enormous hype. The minor leagues are full of prospects with a .277 minor league batting average, […]

Reevaluating the Past and My Fandom

An article by posted on August 26, 2010 0 Comments

After Jesse Orosco struck out Marty Barrett, I lost my passion for the Mets. I don’t know why, but its never been the same. I just didn’t care as much in 1987 as I did in all the previous years, and with each passing year I cared less and less. In 2007 I started rooting […]

You Can Call This A Boycott

An article by posted on August 23, 2010 0 Comments

When it comes to being a barnstorming radical – a demonstrating firebrand – who wants to chant something to the tune of “Hell no we wont go!” or “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Omar Minaya has got to go!”, I’m not exactly what you would call your typical Ceasar Chavez. No, in fact I’m not even […]

Weekend Thoughts: Wally Backman, Being Up Front

An article by posted on August 21, 2010 0 Comments

On Wally: There’s no way Jerry Manuel will survive after this season. Whoever replaces him will have to be marketed to a disgruntled and discouraged fan base. The one guy who will work and won’t break the bank, and who has won at his level, but hasn’t managed on the major league level is Wally […]

Don’t Call It a Boycott: The Great CitiField Sit Out

An article by posted on August 19, 2010 0 Comments

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Joe D for his support in promoting the CitiField Sit Out.  The sit out is an experiment, borne of some discussions on Twitter, via several ideas on Facebook and other social media, based on Mets fans’ general feelings towards the team. I have often said that to […]
