To Jeff Wilpon The Mets Are Just A Laughing Matter… That charming headline appeared in a May 29th Daily News article by the rabble-rousing Filip Bondy You may remember that Jeff Wilpon showed up at Citi Field and made a rare public appearance during a pregame ceremony for Mariano Rivera, who threw out the first pitch, and eventually the last. That was the day that the Mets COO gave up on the season and let the future [...]
New York Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon told Lynn Worthy of the Press & Sun-Bulletin, that he remains committed to the organization’s focus on player development that general manager Sandy Alderson has championed since being hired in October 2010. Wilpon visited Double-A Binghamton yesterday and preached patience and satisfaction with the plan. “There’s a plan. You can’t change the plan every year. OK? Sandy [Alderson], it’s taken him two or three years to get the plan [...]
With Mariano Rivera, the greatest closer of all time, set to retire at the end of the season, teams across the MLB are honoring him in some fashion before games. This is true of the Mets, who honored him prior to Tuesday’s game against the Yanks. He would throw out the first pitch of the game and, ironically, throw the last, as the Mets actually scored two runs on three hits in the bottom of [...]
“Valdespin knew that was coming. I don’t think it’s fair to say that since we didn’t hit one of the Pittsburgh hitters that he doesn’t have a friend. The notion that he was hung out to dry I think is a mistake. I’m not telling you he’s the most popular guy in the clubhouse, but I don’t think he was hung out to dry.” * * * * * * * * * * * There is a problem with the current Mets. [...]
For the last few week’s i’ve been mentally preparing myself for the inevitable fate that Jose Reyes would sign with the Miami Marlins. As much as I tried to stay as optimistic as I could, realistically I knew the team was moving in a different direction. This regime will not give 6 year contracts to players with an injury riddled past as grey as Reyes. Some Mets fan’s will kick and scream and demand the [...]
This past Monday, Mets COO Jeff Wilpon updated the media and fans about the status of the minority ownership stakes, saying it was “going very well.” That was the first significant update since the David Einhorn deal fell apart. Fans and the media alike were interested in who these minority owners were, and Mr. Wilpon stated: Some of the people don’t want to be public. Some of the people might never be public. I don’t [...]
A little more than two weeks ago it was announced by Fred and Jeff Wilpon that they were exploring the option of adding a partner(s) to own the New York Mets. Naturally the news hit the blogs and Twitter in no time and there was talk among Mets fans on who they would want to own the team. There were two names that came up many times as possible new owners for the Mets: James Dolan: Not surprising [...]
I’ve tried my very best to call upon the better angels to guide my thoughts on the recent firings of Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel. What seems to be becoming the yearly sideshow where the Wilpons are apologizing in some fashion for the Mets abject failures, I can finally say it’s taken its toll. Normally I’m a fairly positive person; a glass is half full type of guy, but after taking some time to dissect and digest what [...]
They’re gone! Yes, Omar Minaya is thankfully no longer the General Manager of the New York Mets. Even better news is that Jerry “The Gangsta” Manuel has finally been fired and will no longer be managing the Mets and laughing after a loss. I know the beat writers will miss him but we’re finally free of these two losers. Unfortunately this should have happened years ago but better late than never I suppose. I watched the [...]
