A Spring Time Dilemma For The NY Mets

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 […]

Can We Please Issue A Gag Order On Jerry and Omar?

An article by posted on March 10, 2010 0 Comments

I have a sneaky suspicion that someone from the front office, maybe even Omar Minaya, took Jerry Manuel on the side and told him how it was regarding prospects Jenrry Mejia and Ike Davis. Yesterday, in the lesser of the two big miscommunication snafus, the other being Reyes, Minaya made a statement contradicting what Manuel […]

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, […]

As was the case a year ago, the Mets once again enter the season with high hopes and plenty of demons to exorcise from the prior season. And much like last season, Mike Pelfrey, John Maine and Oliver Perez will be counted on heavily to deliver the best performances of their careers. That’s not really asking […]

An article by posted on March 1, 2010 0 Comments

So apparently Jerry Manuel is having a major bromance with Jenrry Mejia. Apparently he’s gone on record that he wouldn’t object to having Mejia make the club this Spring perhaps as a setup man. Yeah well not so much. They were more like fantasies as he admitted in a press conference. According to John Harper […]

  As reported by WFAN and now confirmed on Mets.com, manager Jerry Manuel said he doesn’t think Kelvim Escobar’s ailing shoulder will allow him to be the team’s eighth-inning man by Opening Day. Escobar, who has been limited to just one Major League appearance in the past two years because of right shoulder woes, said he’s […]

Marty Noble at MLB.com posted some great news this weekend and it seems that the Mets are going to make throwing strikes a top priority this spring with the hope that it carries over to the regular season come Opening Day. At least we now know why the Mets walked the second most batters in the majors […]

On Thursday, Jerry Manuel unveiled his plan that he would bat Jose Reyes in the third spot spot of the lineup, at least until Carlos Beltran re-joins the team. Yesterday, Reyes was all gung-ho for the idea. “Whatever is best for the team, I’m going to do it,” Reyes said. “Manuel is the boss. Whatever he […]

And The New Manager Of The New York Mets Is…

An article by posted on February 9, 2010 0 Comments

It’s a foregone conclusion that Jerry Manuel is on the “Flushing short term managerial plan”. It’s hard to not like Jerry. He came off as personable, insightful, and easygoing when he first stepped into his predecessor Willie Randolph’s shoes. His dubious exodus from New York sent a message to me that things were about to change and that […]
