Johan Deserved A Better Fate

An article by posted on May 28, 2010 0 Comments

I can already imagine all the “Fire Jerry Manuel” posts that we’ll be seeing tomorrow morning when we log onto our computers. Why didn’t he leave Johan in… Why didn’t he let Pedro Feliciano pitch the entire inning… Why didn’t we bring in Jenrry Mejia… Personally, I didn’t have a problem with taking Johan Santana out after […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 7)

An article by posted on May 26, 2010 0 Comments

We took two of three from the Yankees. I could care less about whether Yankees fans consider the series important or not. The point is, Santana looked sharp, the offense looked alive after Javier blanked them, and Jason Bay woke up. I really hope that it wasn’t just a one night thing for Jason, and […]

Johan Santana: A Solitary Warrior When He Takes The Mound

An article by posted on May 5, 2010 0 Comments

Pitchers are my favorite baseball players, but I came late to Johan Santana. I’m New York oriented, so I barely pay attention to the pitchers who are not playing here – I’m not checking all the baseball results every day in the Daily News. I remember Seaver, Ryan, McGraw from the early Mets and all […]

Leave it to the Phillies

Leave it to the Phillies to temper our expectations.  Admittedly, I’m an avid fan of the Mets and Giants, so my hatred of the Phillies and Eagles and Philadelphia fans in general is bordering on unhealthy.  But one thing is for sure….the Phillies are damn good, and they kind of woke up the Mets and […]

An article by posted on May 4, 2010 0 Comments

When Johan Santana was traded here I was extremely happy, he was supposed to be the best pitcher in the majors.  Santana was going to get the Mets a World Series title, the first World Series title since 1986.  Santana did not come cheap, it cost the Mets prospects that didn’t amount to much but […]

Look!  Up in the sky!  It’s a bird!  It’s a plane!  It’s Supe…No, wait.  It’s just another home run given up by Johan Santana. I’ve been reading many articles and blogs on numerous sites, including this one, on who’s to blame for Johan Santana’s poor performance against the Phillies on Sunday night.  It was surely […]

That Loss Was On Jerry Manuel

An article by posted on May 3, 2010 0 Comments

Just when things were seemingly going great for the Mets, especially after taking the first game in the just completed Phillies series, they hit a brick wall. And while there was not much the Mets or Jerry Manuel could have done to defeat the always dominating Roy Halladay on Saturday, I do believe they had […]
