Beyond popular belief, it was actually Justin Turner who was sent back to AAA-Buffalo instead of Josh Thole after the conclusion of last night’s game. With the return of Oliver Perez now a reality, and the news that Ollie will be joining the bullpen as a lefty specialist, Jerry Manuel had a difficult decision but actually did […]

An article by posted on July 19, 2010 0 Comments

I am single handedly prepared to be bashed worse then a horrible 90′s actor at a roast with Jeffery Ross. Regardless of his skyrocketing K totals, his declining walk rate and his inability to hit in the clutch sometimes, statistically David Wright has a good chance to win the MVP – especially if the Mets […]

Remember Nick Evans? He was a healthy scratch from the lineup for AA-Binghamton leading Adam Rubin to believe he may soon be joining the Mets. On Wednesday, Mets manager Jerry Manuel indicated that he wanted a right handed batter on the bench in anticipation of the Braves series that starts today.

Well, the naysayers have been silenced, at least, for the moment. This recent surge by our Amazins does bring about the question if we are witnessing the competency of a winning team that is jelling and playing the game the right way or something more like a sudden thunderstorm that drops feet of water on […]

Mets – Please Draft Grandal

An article by posted on June 5, 2010 0 Comments

I am no expert on College Baseball, High School Baseball or for the most part, minor league baseball. One thing that is apparent is as much as Mets fans would love for the heir apparent to be in our farm system at catcher – he, mainly Josh Thole is not that guy. Josh Thole’s nearest […]

Baseball is a long season and when a team under-performs the way the Mets are you always hear the usual fire the manger and/or general manager.  I support that 100%.  Jerry and Omar absolutely need to go.  Omar has done a horrible job of building the franchise and Jerry Manuel is just not a manager […]

Where Is Nelson Figueroa When You Need Him

An article by posted on May 17, 2010 0 Comments

We could use Nelson Figueroa.  After Johan Santana and Mike Pelfrey, he would be our next best starting pitcher. I was never sold on John Maine after seeing him in spring training.  He’s recently had a few positive starts, though those were against weak hitting NL teams and at the friendly confines of Citifield when […]
