What was the score tonight? A hundred to two, or some such. I checked out in the fourth inning to garden and get to know my children, who’ve known only a Mets fan psycho for the past month or so. Being true to my Mets OCD-self, however, I had to keep checking back. At the back of my mind, there’s always the prayer that there’s going to be some crazy comeback. And then I realize, […]
Even though the All Star Break doesn’t reach us for another week, the official halfway point of the season (81 games) came yesterday after the Mets 2-0 loss to the Phillies. The New York Mets find themselves four games behind the division leading (and Mets-fan hated) Philadelphia Phillies. The “official” first half ended with a record of 39-42, tied with the Atlanta Braves for third place in the NL East. All this despite one injury […]
Earlier this week, Jerry Manuel had a team meeting with his players after the Mets dropped their fifth straight game, a 6-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. They had been playing sloppy, lethargic baseball and had fallen two games under .500. In the nearly half hour meeting, Manuel claimed the following: “The whole key was to say that we have enough. We have enough. We’ve got enough in here to do what we need to […]
I used to consider the Mets my therapy and my stress relief from the daily grind, never did I believe that they would become the source of my angst. I thought for sure that we were going to win it all in 2009 after we signed K-Rod and traded for Putz. I really wanted to get a big bat for leftfield too, but despite that unfulfilled wish I still thought we closed the gap between […]
I cant recall a season where our Mets have been so decimated by injuries. I know that we should actually consider ourselves lucky in many ways. We’ve last 40% of our starting staff along with our newly acquired set-up man. David Wright has been forced into the role of trying to carry this entire team on his back. The losses of Reyes, Delgado and Beltran have made Wright the last man standing. In spite of […]
In what turned out to be the one and only opportunity for the Mets to breakthrough and rough up C.C. Sabathia, the Mets blew a golden opportunity. Actually, let me clarify that and say Jerry Manuel blew a golden opportunity. In the fifth inning, after Gary Sheffield broke up Sabathia’s perfect game with a lead-off solo homerun, Sabathia was rattled and after singles by Fernando Tatis (who is finally hot again) and Nick Evans (will Murphy […]
These days the Mets are a bit of mess as an organization. There is almost 70 million dollars sitting on the disabled list, the roster is made up of guys who should be in the minor leagues or at best they are back up guys, the farm system has suffered some blows this past week as 3 young players have been suspended for the use of PED’s. Yesterday the Mets announced that they are holding […]
The Mets bullpen got off to a great start and quickly staked its claim as the best in the National League after an off-season overhaul. But as the season wore on, and the bullpen innings continued to mount, we began to see some cracks as May came to an end. Jerry Manuel was quick to take the blame for his ineffective bullpen lately, but there’s more to it than that. “What I need to do […]
Poll Question:What Concerns You Most About The Mets Right Now? Despite the amazing turnout at the poll for this question (734 votes), the results are extremely too close for my taste. The majority of voters (247 34%) believe that the Mets’ biggest concern is starting pitching, and of course that would make sense especially with uncertainty over Maine and Perez . An alarming 25% or 183 of MMO poll takers, believe that Jerry Manuel is a […]
