“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 [...]
Bob Klapish of the Bergen Record revealed some of the internal turmoil going on in the Mets front office where it seems Jeff and Fred Wilpon are conflicted as to how the Mets should move forward. In this quote via MetsBlog, it’s quite clear that nothing has been set in stone yet as many have indicated in the last few days. “According to those familiar with ownership’s thinking… Jeff Wilpon is said to want to move aggressively [...]
Thankfully there are only 6 more games left of this horrible season. That also means only 6 more games left of some jerryball. Last year after the season ended the Mets did a bit of a media blitz that concluded with Jeff Wilpon, Omar Minaya and Dave Howard going on WFAN with Mike Francesa. They made a bunch of promises and some excuses that for some reason had Mets fans hopeful for 2010. I posted [...]
“They have a problem they don’t understand: This is not a desirable location. New York is desirable, but this is the wrong borough. I don’t think it has sunk in with Jeff yet that he is running a team that the best people might not want to work for.” ~ An NL Executive I think Joel Sherman’s article in Sunday’s New York Post pretty much sums up why the next few months for the Mets [...]
