Coming into 2010 we knew that there would be questions regarding the pitching, we knew that there were guys coming back from injuries and we also knew that the Mets needed a good start for Jerry Manuel to keep his job as the manager.  The Mets haven’t started good, losing their first 2 series to […]

Jerry Manuel was a guest of Mike Francesa on WFAN today, and was chock full of information, essentially detailing some last minute items of note as the Mets get set for Opening Day. To begin, the last roster spot is down to the same two guys I mentioned on Wednesday, infielders Chris Carter and Frank Catalanotto. While […]

We have just one more week of Spring Training left and the good news out of Mets camp is that Jose Reyes may soon appear in a minor league game perhaps as soon as today. Also, Omar Minaya said this weekend that we should not rule Jose Reyes out for Opening Day. As soon as Reyes […]

Manuel and Warthen Serve Us Some Figgy Pudding

An article by posted on March 27, 2010 0 Comments

I found it so laughable and typical that after almost an entire spring training without a peep from Jerry Manuel regarding Nelson Figueroa, Manuel chose yesterdays implosion on the mound from Figgy to reveal his intentions about the 35-year old right-hander. After a near perfect run this spring, you would think that Figueroa might have jeopardized […]

Glad Omar Is Unwilling To Rush Prospects To Save Job

An article by posted on March 23, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]

For Manuel, 2010 Season Is A Sprint Not A Marathon

An article by posted on March 21, 2010 0 Comments

Met Nation, we are officially nearing the time when players need to start putting themselves into game shape mentally. Not just physically getting their work in, but mentally preparing for the rigors of 162 games that count. (and hopefully a few more after that) I feel a post season berth is well within reach. It’s […]

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 […]

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, […]

Everything Riding On Pelfrey, Maine and Ollie Again

An article by posted on March 5, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]
