It has been a long time coming, but its realistic to think this could be the week the Mets finally turn the corner. Since arriving in Queens following the completion of the 2010 season, Sandy Alderson has done little more than cut the fat. Crippled by the bloated contracts issued by his predecessor, Omar Minaya, and a shoe-string budget courtesy of the poor investing decisions of team owner, Fred Wilpon, Sandy was left with few […]
It hard to think that after the stunning exit from the 2006 NLCS, the consecutive collapses that followed, the mediocre baseball since, and the gut check that was the departure of Jose Reyes, that things could actually get worse for our beloved Mets. With the team poised to close out its worst campaign in at least four years, the organization isn’t exactly entering the offseason on a high note. Unfortunately, this winter includes another moment […]
Its no secret that the Mets are in a rebuilding period. Mired in what will likely be their fourth consecutive losing season, its apparent that change is necessary. The process by which that change occurs is where the debate begins. How the Mets should proceed is the topic of countless blog posts and endless radio debate. Build through free agency, versus building through the draft. Both avenues have their merits, but neither encompasses the big […]
As we get ready to begin the 2012 season, there is a lot of negativity surrounding the Mets. Some of it is warranted, but some of it is the product of misconceptions and misrepresentations. I think a lot of it comes from living in the bubble of being fans of one particular team, so everything gets judged with the limited scope of only seeing that team. I’d like to take a crack at setting the […]
I remember when the whole Madoff fiasco started to carpet-bomb its way into the mainstream sports media. Well before it all started to make headlines and evolve into the sports blogs fodder du-jour, mercilessly mocking the team, its owners and even fans, I had a conversation with an old family friend with ties to the organization. During our chat the Madoff situation came up. Basically he said that the Mets wouldn’t be spending money on […]
Thursday – October 19th – 2006 Top of the 9th and the score is 3 to 1 in favor of the St. Louis Cardinals. The Mets are one loss away from post-season elimination. The St. Louis Cardinals are one win away from the World Series. Cliff Floyd has struck out with runners on first and second. Jose Reyes has just lined out to Jim Edmonds in center. Hope is rapidly fading when Carlos Beltran makes […]
For the last few week’s i’ve been mentally preparing myself for the inevitable fate that Jose Reyes would sign with the Miami Marlins. As much as I tried to stay as optimistic as I could, realistically I knew the team was moving in a different direction. This regime will not give 6 year contracts to players with an injury riddled past as grey as Reyes. Some Mets fan’s will kick and scream and demand the […]
Here’s another great article originally written and posted back on February 15, 2011 by the always entertaining Rob Silverman AKA Tie Dyed. It’s a little bit prophetic and some of the comments are a blast to read nine months later. Enjoy… Nakatomi Plaza, Century City, CA: John McClane is acting alone, trying to save hostages from a group of terrorists. But he is not just fighting against the terrorists. The LAPD, the FBI, the media […]
Sandy Alderson’s comments about the New York Mets not being able to spend this off-season did not make much sense. Why with the impending sale of a minority stake in the team would Alderson come out at the end of August and say that the Mets would not be big players in the free agent market this off-season? The answer to this question has become very clear. Dave Einhorn is not going to be buying […]
