If any of you have the utter joy living in the Northeast I’m sure you’re well aware that this has been one of the roughest winters in a long time if ever. Six snowstorms including a major blizzard and we haven’t even made it into February yet. The moment I walked into my local A&P it was as if I had stepped into an 80′s disaster flick. I swore I saw someone who looked like [...]
I’ve tried my very best to call upon the better angels to guide my thoughts on the recent firings of Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel. What seems to be becoming the yearly sideshow where the Wilpons are apologizing in some fashion for the Mets abject failures, I can finally say it’s taken its toll. Normally I’m a fairly positive person; a glass is half full type of guy, but after taking some time to dissect and digest what [...]
The Cardinals didn’t make the post-season this year but I don’t expect them to be trading Pujols. The Rockies didn’t make it either but somehow I don’t see them shopping Troy Tulowitzki. The Padres just missed but I am pretty confident they’ll hang on to Adrian Gonzalez. So, why oh why, would the Mets be willing to ‘listen to offers’ for David Wright? This past Monday I watched Kevin Burkhardt’s candid interview with Fred Wilpon. [...]
They’re gone! Yes, Omar Minaya is thankfully no longer the General Manager of the New York Mets. Even better news is that Jerry “The Gangsta” Manuel has finally been fired and will no longer be managing the Mets and laughing after a loss. I know the beat writers will miss him but we’re finally free of these two losers. Unfortunately this should have happened years ago but better late than never I suppose. I watched the [...]
Bob Klapish of the Bergen Record revealed some of the internal turmoil going on in the Mets front office where it seems Jeff and Fred Wilpon are conflicted as to how the Mets should move forward. In this quote via MetsBlog, it’s quite clear that nothing has been set in stone yet as many have indicated in the last few days. “According to those familiar with ownership’s thinking… Jeff Wilpon is said to want to move aggressively [...]
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 out with your favorite girl. Then it all begins to change so slowly at first that you don’t even notice. [...]
All year long we’ve been told that the Mets are financially in good health. It’s been the mantra ever since the name Bernard Madoff made headline news with his Ponzi scheme and swept the Wilpon family and Sterling Enterprises on board his swarmy carpet ride; not to mention all the livelihoods he destroyed along the way. The man surely has a place in hell perfectly decorated waiting for his arrival one day. Needless to say [...]
About 2 weeks ago principal owner Fred Wilpon was asked about Omar Minaya’s job status after the 2010 season. Clueless Fred responded by saying: “Is the sun coming up tomorrow?” I cannot understand where this vote of confidence is coming from. Omar Minaya has been the General Manager since the end of the 2004 season. In that time Omar has built a team that went to the playoffs ONCE! As we all know in 2007 [...]
There seriously must be something brewing in the New York water supply and it’s having a mind numbing, logic nullifying, neuron destroying effect on it’s resident billionaires. How else can you explain the actions- or non-actions- of New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon to not right his sinking ship by tossing General Manager Omar Minaya and Manager Jerry Manuel overboard at this point? Or Knicks owner James Dolan for his quizzical attempt to re-hire former [...]
