An article by posted on June 22, 2010 0 Comments

I’m sure like most of you, I was tickled orange-and-blue when Johan Santana was traded to the New York Mets in the offseason leading to the 2008 season.  I have a few friends who were from Minnesota who did warn me, however, that Santana takes a while to “warm up” during the season.  Expect a […]

Last winter, when the Mets signed Jason Bay, I was struck by the amount of talented players whom the Mets had procured and had to play the outfield in 2010. I envisioned an outfield of Beltran flanked by Bay and the ex-Brave Jeff Francoeur, who had come to the Mets in the Ryan Church deal, and had […]

According to a report by Andy Martino of the Daily News, the Mets do have the payroll flexibility to add another starter “if they remain in contention”. That’s a big “if” of course. A person with direct knowledge of the Mets’ thinking also told Martino that the team has no interest in bringing Pedro Martinez back to Queens. […]

The 18-16 Mets currently find themselves in third place, two and a half games behind the first place Philadelphia Phillies. Back in March, while the Mets were getting ready to close out Port St. Lucie and head north for Opening Day, I felt that the Mets stood a good chance of going to the post season […]

I don’t know about you, but as a die-hard Elton John fan I was thrilled when during last night’s game against the Braves, Keith Hernandez mentioned the song “I’ve Seen That Movie Too,” an obscure number from Elton’s 1973 “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” album. (I believe it was during that conference on the mound where […]

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 […]
