I’ve always been a Mets fan.  Well, since around 1970 or so…that’s as far back as I can remember.  So even though many of you have read my work on there the last six-eight months about how frustrated and annoyed I am with the way the team has played and the direction they have gone […]

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

Yesterday, Joe D posted a blog suggesting that picking up J.J. Putz’s option would be a waste of money.  I happen to agree with his position.  Putz’s option is way too much for a man who has been a shadow of himself due to various injuries.  There are other less expensive options the Mets could […]

So much for revamping the bullpen last off season… J.J. Putz – 2 thumbs down… Sean Green – 1 1/2 thumbs down (I sliced half my thumb off on a slicing machine when I worked at the deli. Not!) Frankie Rodriguez – You tell me? According to Newsday, Francisco Rodriguez became the first pitcher since […]

An article by posted on August 4, 2009 0 Comments

If Mets fans were given a nickle for every heart breaking loss we’ve suffered beginning with Yadier Molina’s home run 3 years ago, we’d have enough to buy the ball club from the Wilpons. The Cardinals rallied in the ninth inning and Frankie Rodriguez blew his fourth save of the year to give the Red Birds the […]

According to a new entry on Bart Hubbuch’s Mets blog for the NY Post, Mets minor league players were not the only ones subjected to the mad ravings of Mets VP Tony Bernazard.
