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 [...]
This is a story making the rounds on the web the last 2 days and it has really started to pick up steam. According to ESPN.com’s Peter Gammons, Mets COO Jeff Wilpon is the real general manager for the New York Mets and Omar Minaya is just a puppet, designed to take the heat when seasons like 2009 occur. Gammon was on Michael Kay’s radio show yesterday and Kay asked Gammon’s about Omar hiring hitting [...]
The New York Times had an interesting article this past Sunday about the Mets handling of Jose Reyes’ injury. October 5, 2009, the day after the last game of the 2009 season, a season in which for the third straight year the Mets failed to make the post season Jeff Wilpon and the Mets had a media blitz, talking about what went wrong in 2009, what to expect in 2010 and the injuries that occurred [...]

Everywhere you turned yesterday, the top story, as far as us Mets fans are concerned, was the Mets road show of Jeff Wilpon, Omar Minaya and Dave Howard. One or all of them appeared at Citi Field where they kicked off their tour, followed by some candid one on ones with various SNY personalities and celebrated New York sports writers. Finally, it was off to their last stop of the evening at WFAN studios in Queens with the king of New [...]
Last week I shared an email from Jeff Wilpon that said he would aggressively do whatever it takes to win a championship in 2010. Today, he expanded a little more on that. First let me share his opening remarks before he fielded a few questions. Fred, Saul and I would like to thank Mets fans for supporting the team through this painful, disappointing season. Like all fans, we are extremely unhappy with our results, both [...]
As we reported yesterday, the Mets have announced that no tickets will go up in price next season for Citi Field, and that they will reduce season-ticket prices by 10 to 20 percent. They will also be reducing the number of gold level ticket games which put a premium on desirable matchups. That’s a fitting gesture and a good first step toward healing the rift between the Mets and their fan base. However, lost in the [...]
Yesterday, Erin Arvedlund, author of the book “Too Good To Be True”, appeared on FOX Business News and faced off against Mets VP of Business Operations, Dave Howard.

The Mets have released a statement that the fall instructional league has not been canceled, but only shifted to the the Dominican Republic. Still, it’s a cost cutting maneuver no matter how they wish to present it.
