Over the past five seasons, David Wright has emerged as the face of the New York Mets franchise and assumed the role of unofficial “captain”. For the most part he has filled this role rather nicely and has always brought a positive vibe to the team. Over his five year tenure with the Mets, Wright has been through the highs and lows. What has always impressed me was regardless of how the team was performing […]
I just looked through some notes of mine from the start of the season, and found this article previewing the NL East by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. Here is an excerpt of how he felt about the Mets heading into 2009: Two years, two chokes. The Mets have gotten good at this. And, sure, the bullpen was a big issue, so seeing J.J. Putz and Francisco Rodriguez in the eighth and ninth innings will […]
This weekend, Jerry Manuel was kind enough to answer a couple of questions that were submitted to Mets Merized Online by one of our readers. Dave Ponte spoke with Jerry and asked him: MMO - Do you address each and every fundamental mistake you see with each player after/during each game to ensure that it does not happen again, or is it just part of the game learning experience? JM - They are addressed at some point that we […]
I am pretty negative when it comes to Jerry Manuel and his managing of the New York Mets. On one side, I think he is a great guy. He treats the media well, and for the most part he has handled this disaster of a season very well. I often find myself shaking my head at the moves he made at the end of last season, and earlier this year (you know, when we actually […]
The New York Mets have released a statement that they will not be altering the dimensions of Citi Field for the 2010 season based on the recommendations of Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel. Ed Eagle of Mets.com writes, The Mets’ franchise legacy has been built upon strong pitching, and they’ll need to continue to focus on that aspect of their team-building to be successful in their new home in the future. Citing a team source, the New […]
Earlier today, Joe D posted a blog on the 1969 tribute at Citi Field. In it, he included a “where are they now” segment to catch readers up on what their heroes from 40 years ago are doing. Perhaps I should do the same with the 2009 Mets. After all, some of this year’s players have been gone for so long, we may not recognize them when they come back. Below you will find the […]
Yesterday it came out that Johan Santana would miss his next start and go see a doctor for his ailing pitching elbow. Another day and another Met injury no longer surprises me anymore with this Mickey Mouse organization but what does surprise me is that the Mets knew about this and did NOTHING! Johan Santana is one of the best pitchers in the game, he’s the ace of the embarrassing starting rotation for the Mets […]
If you could come back as a fan of another baseball team, and could not choose the Mets obviously, who would you pick? The team I’d pick is a team I’d love to see the NY Mets begin modeling their franchise after. A Big market team, an energized fan base, a team built with speed, pitching, fundamentals and solid player development. I’d be a fan of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Angels in one […]
As one of Omar Minaya’s biggest supporters, I do believe it will be time to demote him after this season. When you take a look around the big leagues, you notice there are eight teams that will continue to operate with a team salary of over $100 million. Those teams are the Yankees, Mets, Cubs, Red Sox, Tigers, Angels, Phillies and Dodgers. There seems to be one glaring difference between their General Managers and ours, […]
