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 […]
Some weird happenings are taking place in Metsville in the last few days. First, Jeff Wilpon and John Ricco make an unexpected stop in Atlanta on Monday to watch the Mets lose to the Bravos. It prompts Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, to suggest a potential shakeup was in the works. “With just over a month remaining in the season, the Mets remain far from playoff contention, spawning the notion that a personnel shakeup is on the horizon.” While […]
There seriously must be something brewing in the New York water supply and it’s having a mind numbing, logic nullifying, neuron destroying effect on it’s resident billionaires. How else can you explain the actions- or non-actions- of New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon to not right his sinking ship by tossing General Manager Omar Minaya and Manager Jerry Manuel overboard at this point? Or Knicks owner James Dolan for his quizzical attempt to re-hire former […]
Almost as predictable as the Mets falling short in the wins column these days is the projected fall-out that occurs after each loss. Every beat writer or sports news outlet is trying to find the scapegoat. I find that laughable, since I believe Jerry Manuel, Howard Johnson or Omar Minaya are symptoms of a larger problem. I can’t believe that letting any of those guys go will help in the short or long term, except […]
According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets’ reign of error is set to continue into 2011. Fred Wilpon will retain Omar Minaya for the 2011 season. The team’s principal owner, Fred Wilpon, on Thursday said he is planning to stick with general manager Omar Minaya beyond this year, despite the threat of a second straight losing season. Wilpon, in East Hartford, Conn., to help announce a new partnership between SNY and […]
If the past helps dictate the present, I have high doubts that Omar Minaya will make a move, any move, good or bad, to help this team at the trading deadline. Why is that? Well, when has he EVER been aggressive at the trading deadline? Or with trades, period? I had a conversation on Twitter a few nights ago about Minaya, actually, about this very topic. Our consensus was while we thought him to be […]
Free agent catcher Bengie Molina has rejected the latest offer from the Mets, according to a tweet by Buster Olney of ESPN. Heard this: Bengie Molina has turned down the Mets’ most recent offer, and the Mets are beginning to focus on Joel Pineiro. Just last week, Jon Morosi of Fox Sports reported that the Mets were “close” to signing Molina it was expected that something was getting done in 3-4 days. The Mets and Molina have […]
On October 4th, after the conclusion of the worst season in the Omar Minaya era, Jeff Wilpon appeared with Minaya and Dave Howard on WFAN with Mike Francesa. When Wilpon was pressed by Francesa to spell out specifically what he would do differently in 2010, Wilpon responded as follows: “Obviously, mistakes were made with respect to how player injuries were handled. There was a lot of miscommunication, especially with injuries that occurred on the road. We […]
