Last night’s Met victory provided me with a brief moment of satisfaction as it pertains to this team. It’s frustrating seeing the Mets flailing away at the baseball at times. Johan pitched pretty well however, and the Mets finally won a series. Rejoice Met Nation! I must broach a subject that has perplexed and exasperated me […]

Last night Ike Davis made his major league debut, going 2-4 with an RBI.  Jonathan Niese pitched a good game and Jenrry Mejia closed the game out for the win.  It was a good night for the franchise prospects. I remember not too long ago there were reports that the farm system was dead.  Some […]

Updated 5:30 pm According to Adam Rubin, John Maine will remain in the rotation and make Sunday’s start against the St. Louis Cardinals.

When asked If Maine’s spot in the rotation was in jeopardy, Jerry said, “Well, I think those things we’ll have to talk about.  I think right now, right after this game, you know, you have to sleep on that and see how you feel tomorrow and hopefully he feels OK.  But, you have to have […]

As of right now Johan Santana will be pitching once again on 6 days rest which gives him an extra day off.  Normally this would be a good thing but Johan is not a typical pitcher.  For some reason Johan has trouble pitching on extra rest.  It’s somewhat dumbfounding but that is the case with […]

Last seasons’ wounds haven’t healed.  Yet, sitting around discussing the current issues with this current incarnation of the NY Mets with some friends has revealed not panic, but apathy… Willie Harris catch has robbed us of a .500 start, but, more importantly, Johan Santana’s lack of velocity this past Sunday and really for quite some […]

I asked this question the other day while on Twitter, with Jenrry Mejia in the bullpen, Nelson Figueroa in Philly, and no major league ready pitching prospects on call, who would be the Mets’ first choice to replace an injured or under-performing starter? Kelvim Escobar, Hisanori Takahashi and Fernando Nieve were the most popular answers I […]

It’s Not As Bad As Some Would Have You Believe

An article by posted on April 5, 2010 0 Comments

Loyal, stupid and in denial are the three words that most accurately describes me when talking about the 2010 Mets. Firstly, I’ve been a Met fan for over 35 years. In that time I’ve been treated to one World Championship. If that’s not loyalty, I don’t know what is. Even as we watched the stars […]
