“The more things change, the more they stay the same” seems to apply for the Mets after the last few days. On Friday I posted here that Terry Collins told reporters that it would be up to Carlos Beltran on whether or not he would move from center-field and start playing right-field. Yesterday Brandon Butler posted that Oliver Perez has already been guaranteed a roster spot by Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins. I was hoping with a […]
The Mets make 2 important changes by firing Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel. Not much has happened since. As the Mets take their sweet time looking for a general manager there are still a lot more changes that need to be made. 1) The Ballpark: Citi Field is just too big! I know we’ve been saying that for the last 2 seasons but the Wilpons refuse to bring in the fences. All you look at […]
We interrupt your regularly scheduled day of blog reading to give you breaking news that’s already been broken. Omar Minaya has been relieved of his GM duties and Jerry Manuel’s option for the 2011 season was not picked up. Of course, this wasn’t even breaking news before it became official. It was a foregone conclusion that the man famous for inserting the words “that being said” into every other sentence and the man known as […]
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 […]
He’s a terrible manager. He burns out the bullpen. He hooks the starters too quickly. The players don’t respond to him. There’s dissension in the clubhouse. He’s lost control of the team. He needs to go. Once we get rid of him things will improve. No, I’m not talking about Jerry Manuel. I heard these same comments leading up the heavily anticipated firing of Willie Randolph. I thought once we got rid of Willie we […]
It was interesting to hear Jerry Manuel evaluate his performance a couple of nights ago on SNY, admitting he pushed the envelope in bringing back Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran, and the experiment with Reyes at third. Much of the self-evaluation had been written by posters at the time, but it must be remembered Manuel is working off different information and conditions that we were. Quite simply, Manuel knew there was pressure on him to […]
Updated 10:30 PM From ESPN NY, more comments from Joe Torre. “I apologize. He is right that I shouldn’t have said that, and I don’t think I did. Somebody asked me if I would take a call from Fred Wilpon. I have known Fred Wilpon forever. I won’t be managing the Mets, and I thought I made that clear yesterday. It was about taking a call as opposed to looking for a job. I went to […]
“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 […]
