Leaders Suck It Up…

Every time the Mets go public with updates on their core of injured players, usually another setback like Carlos Delgado’s strained oblique, it is tantamount to the water torture prevalent during wartime interrogations. As Archie Bunker used to say, “Put a lid on it, Meathead!” I doubt Mets fans care to hear about another injury […]

Francisco Rodriguez was supposed to be the answer to the bullpen problems the Mets suffered last year.  For the first half of the season, he was as good as advertised, picking up save after save and keeping his ERA south of 1.00.  Then Luis Castillo dropped the pop-up at Yankee Stadium, giving Rodriguez his first […]

When you examine the Mets lineup, and assume that Jose Reyes will be back, you soon realize there are four glaring holes in the everyday lineup. Obviously, they need another starting pitcher. It doesn’t take a creative mind to figure out this team needs to either get Cliff Lee, or somebody of his caliber, or […]

Today, I called my dad to wish him a happy birthday. The subject naturally went from how many candles he’s blowing out tonight to the Mets. Okay, so we beat the Nationals. The sad thing was that I was excited about it. I threw my hands in the air without looking at the bigger picture; […]

From the archives of the strange, but true… The Mets may have found themselves a new utility infielder who can play first base, third base, pinch hit, and even pitch a complete game. And the best part is, we don’t have to give up any propsects to get him because he’s already on the team. Adam Rubin of […]

Will The Mets Party Like It’s 1987?

An article by posted on July 16, 2009 0 Comments

Much has been made about the 2009 Mets resembling the 1987 team because of the injuries.  The difference is that this year’s injuries have mainly cost the Mets their offensive spark plugs while the 1987 team lost their starting pitchers to various injuries.  I have done extensive research on the 1987 team and I will […]

Anytime your hometown team averages one run per game, in the bandbox known as Citizen’s Bank Ballpark, it is a frustrating and sleepy endeavor. Regardless of who appears in the daily lineup. Right now the Mets […]
