High Hopes + Low Expectations = No Consolation

An article by posted on April 21, 2010 0 Comments

Sorry Mets Merized fans.  I am still unwilling to dive head first into the Koolaid just yet, and I’m still somewhat negative on the 2010 Mets.  I know it’s early and a lot can happen.  And there are some positives.  But overall I see a bleak picture for the 2010 season.  A .500 winning percentage is […]

Experts, fans and anyone with a mouth speaks of such anti-Billy Beane topics as “clutch hitting”. I am here to bring an even crazier philosophy – one so insane, that if you comprehend it you may want to be institutionalized. Its called “hitting, period”. Unfortunately, this is a crazy, next level idea that only appeals […]

Welcome to Club Carter, Mets fans. Where the drinks are free and you get all the Kool-aid you can drink. I am still advocating that Carter makes the team. Whether he is given the starting job or a bench spot is not as clear cut in my mind, but I definitely think he should be […]

We now return you to ‘As The World Turns‘… That should be what each return from a commercial on SNY and WPIX says this exhibition season… I am becoming more concerned as the Mets continue to have more questions than answers each day spring training continues. What drama… We should be getting closer to making cuts. Instead the […]

I am a passenger on the Daniel Murphy bandwagon.  I’ve been defending Daniel all winter and will continue doing so.  Whether you agree or not, see the writing on the wall.  Murphy will be the Mets starting 1st baseman this year.  My prediction is that Daniel will prove his detractors wrong and have a breakout […]
