MetsMerized Player Of The Week! 7/12-7/19

An article by posted on July 20, 2009 0 Comments

Most people won’t be paying attention to the Mets blogosphere anymore, and I can understand why. But that doesn’t mean the bloggers are going to stop blogging! The “Fan Confidence Rating” on Metsblog continues to amaze me by staying above 0%. Really. Because I’ve been reading a lot about giving it in and sadly, it […]

Mets Chop Braves 5-1 Behind Santana’s Smooth Effort

An article by posted on July 18, 2009 0 Comments

The fact that Johan Santana won a game after the All-Star Break was nothing new.  After all, he’s now 59-17 in his career after the All-Star Break and 9-0 with the Mets.  The only thing new about it was the team he defeated. Santana pitched seven shutout innings and his teammates provided him with all […]

Can Things Get Better? Maybe

An article by posted on July 15, 2009 0 Comments

For as bad as the Mets have looked at times this season (and I have advocated blowing up the team or just not paying attention to them anymore), it’s almost miraculous that they are not worse than three games under .500 and 6 ½ games out of first place.  When you think about the lousy […]

After being shutout by the Reds on Friday, the Mets returned the favor tonight and shut the Reds out 4-0 on the strength of a solid performance by Johan Santana and some clutch hitting by Jeff Francoeur!. The Mets got on the board in the first inning when our new rightfielder Jeff Francoeur singled with the […]

Time To Change the Channel

A thought occurred to me last night as the score reached 7-0 Dodgers—I don’t have to watch this crap if I don’t want to.  Not that there’s much on TV besides baseball during the summer except horrible reality shows and re-runs, but I’d rather see anything these days besides watching our Mets get trounced and […]

Met Fans: Omar Has Failed Us

An article by posted on July 7, 2009 0 Comments

I know it sounds like bad dialogue out of a comic book or a Michael Bay movie but it is unfortunately true.  Omar over the last couple of years seemed to be the “Teflon GM.”  The last 2 seasons we have witnessed the Mets collapse and miss going into the playoffs by one game.  Omar […]

Swept Away Again — Disgusting

An article by posted on July 6, 2009 0 Comments

Hmmm… what next genius move will emanate from Mets’ ownership? Perhaps the promotion of Josh Thole or Wilmer Flores. My God, what farther depths will we sink to this season? If being swept out of Citi by the Yanks weren’t bad enough, today we fans were treated to a greater humiliation (owing to playoff chances […]

Fantasy Focus: Mets Positional Analysis – Part I: The Good!

An article by posted on July 5, 2009 0 Comments

It’s been a brutal 4th of July weekend getting swept by the hated Phillies.  The Mets now sit below .500 for the season.  Clearly the team needs some help – either from the return of our injured stars or via trade – although it appears that the front office is still prudently waiting for the […]

Is The Mets Organization Falling Apart?

An article by posted on June 30, 2009 0 Comments

It seems to me that the Mets are in a lot of trouble.  I’m not talking about the fact that the Mets are now in 3rd place and are now under .500.  I’m talking about the 9 baseball players that are currently on the disabled list or that their salaries equal almost 70 million dollars.  […]

Mets Nail Carpenter And Take The Finale 3-2

An article by posted on June 25, 2009 0 Comments

What a game my friends! The Mets showed some fight, some heart, and some grit… Call it whatever you want, but they played some of the best baseball of the season in taking three games out of four against the St. Louis Cardinals. In today’s finale, they touched up Cardinals ace, Chris Carpenter for three runs […]
