Pundits often say a college football coach deserves at least two years to turn a team over before anyone can honestly pass judgement. That time provides the new coach with enough time to recruit his own players and implement his own scheme. General managers in Major League Baseball get no such grace period. Thus the dilemma Sandy Alderson currently finds himself in. Since taking the helm on October 29, 2010, Sandy Alderson has deconstructed the […]
Yesterday, I was reminded about a feature I started after last season ended, entitled “The Keepers”. It’s just a few posts intended to highlight some of the bright up and coming players we have in our system. Enjoy! After spending just over a season and a half in the minors, and dominating at each level along the way, Mets prospect Matt Harvey got his chance and had a very impressive performance to begin his Major […]
As the Mets look for ways to improve their roster heading into next year, its become apparent that their shoestring budget will force them into the trade market. There are a million ways that could play out, but some people have their ideas. For instance, I think the pertinent play would be for the Mets to shop RA Dickey in an effort to fill their outfield and/or catching needs. That, however, isn’t the only line […]
So by now, everyone has heard the news that Mike Pelfrey will not be tendered this off-season. This allows him to freely seek employment with other teams. The day this was announced (Tuesday I believe), I happened to be listening to the Boomer and Carton Radio Show while I was driving in my car. Boomer said something that immediately resonated with me, and probably many other Mets fans that were listening at that time. He […]
The season ended about three weeks ago and now that we’ve had some time to reflect, it’s time to start handing out grades. This morning, we’ll begin with the starting pitching. The starting pitching exceeded expectations this year. I don’t think anyone thought that Jon Niese or R.A. Dickey would be as dominant as they were this year. We were also very unsure about how Chris Young and Johan Santana would hold up. Both contributed […]
For the most part, Mets fans were pleasantly surprised with the production of the Mets pitching staff in 2012. The bullpen kept us on the edge of our seats the majority of the season, but the starters were one of the bright spots for the Mets. None shone brighter than the ace of the staff, RA Dickey. Some injuries prevented the Mets starting rotation from reaching its full potential, but when all the starters […]
Its hard to fathom now, but the Mets had a realistic shot at the playoffs only one month ago. Since then the team has taken a turn for the worst with a lot of poorly played baseball compounded by additional injuries. In the process, the current situation has re-highlighted some glaring issues that the team’s successful first half had given us the luxury of forgetting about. First and foremost, the team’s pitching staff desperately needs […]
I know what your thinking..The Mets are well on their way to making the 2012 season nothing more than an afterthought. The fact is your probably right, and that’s exactly what needs to happen if the organization is to find its way back to the promise land sooner than later. With the semi-successful first half, many Mets fans (myself included) allowed themselves to buy into the possibility that this team could make the post-season. Having […]
It’s all fun and games until the Mets find themselves a half a dozen games back in the division and fading. That’s certainly how it feels today as the Mets limp into DC with their season on the ropes. With six games against the NL East leading Washington Nationals over the next nine days, the Mets have to opportunity to claw their way back into the fight for the division, however it may be time […]
