Nice interview in the NY Post this morning with former Met and SNY Analyst Bobby Ojeda. Q: Based on the inconsistency Mike Pelfrey, Oliver Perez and John Maine have shown this spring training, do you think the Mets made a mistake not picking up another starter this offseason? A: I would have agreed with that […]

Yesterday was a big day for 20-year old RHP Jenrry Mejia as he continues to move closer toward locking up a spot in the 2010 Mets bullpen. He passed his test of working on back-to-back days with flying colors. The young phenom pitched a perfect inning of relief in the Mets’ 7-6 exhibition victory over the Braves, […]

Glad Omar Is Unwilling To Rush Prospects To Save Job

This Spring we’ve gotten to look at some of our young prospects and they have impressed fans, the media and the team.  The reports that the farm system was dead have been greatly exaggerated it seems.  Fernando Martinez, Ike Davis, Jon Niese and Jenrry Mejia are having great springs, so of course there has been plenty […]

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

As my excitement for the new season grows stronger with each passing day, there are still several questions and question marks that occupy my mind. That is to be expected with the season we had to suffer through last year. But 2010 brings new possibilities, though injuries have already begun scaring the fan base. Beltran is […]

Mejia Takes A Walk On The Wild Side

An article by posted on March 20, 2010 0 Comments

By now you all know my stance on simply handing 20-year old Mejia a bullpen spot, especially when it means passing on one of Hisanori Takahashi, Kiko Calero, Nelson Figueroa or even Fernando Nieve who are all performing better than him. I won’t bore you with my theories on how this same experiment didn’t work for Bobby Parnell […]

Jenrry Mejia Is Creating Quite A Commotion

An article by posted on March 18, 2010 0 Comments

I wonder if Mike Pelfrey and John Maine would create as much a stir as young Jenrry Mejia if they too simply decided to throw strikes whenever they got on a mound. I also wonder how long it will be before both of them realize it’s now or never if they intend to hang onto […]

An article by posted on March 16, 2010 0 Comments

This is the time during Spring Training that all Major League teams start to cut down their rosters, sending some players down to their Minor League affiliates, while others are sent on their way right out of the organization. The funny thing about this process is that there are very few surprises as to who stays […]

The Dawn Is Coming Met Fans

The New York Mets have seen darker days than this; the midnight massacre in which Tom Seaver was traded away comes to mind.  Another bad time for the Mets and their fan base was in the early 90’s when the Mets had the worst team that money could buy followed by the failure of Generation […]

The Time For Short-Sightedness Must Come To An End

An article by posted on March 11, 2010 0 Comments

According to Adam Rubin, of the Daily News, Jerry Manuel  does in fact intend to use Jenrry Mejia in short relief appearances. First, Mr. Rubin’s quote, than my outrage. Look for Manuel to get his way with Jenrry Mejia, at least as far as working the 20-year-old righthander as a reliever from this point forward […]

Will Communication Gap Stand In Way Of Mets Success?

An article by posted on March 9, 2010 0 Comments

Communication is important and it’s something that the Mets need to work on improving and fast if they want any success in the near future.  The last couple of seasons have shown how the lack of communication has hurt this franchise on and off the field.  The Mets promised things would be different this year, […]
