Would Mets Dare To Mess With Chemistry?

An article by posted on May 14, 2010 0 Comments

So Met Nation after another defeat, this time, at the hands of Josh Johnson and the Marlins, questions arise about different lineup concepts to get the offense rolling. Jerry Manuel, not the quickest hook to ever manage, must realize now that his “idea” of moving Jose Reyes to the three spot in the batting order […]

The Mets Must Stay The Course Until Beltran Returns

The 18-16 Mets currently find themselves in third place, two and a half games behind the first place Philadelphia Phillies. Back in March, while the Mets were getting ready to close out Port St. Lucie and head north for Opening Day, I felt that the Mets stood a good chance of going to the post season […]

Talk about a bummer of a road trip… The only good part of it was yesterday’s get-away day. I’m totally excited about the Mets coming home to begin weekend series against the San Francisco Giants, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have some inhibitions about Mike Pelfrey and Johan Santana based on […]

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 […]

First, allow myself to introduce…myself.  The handle is Taryn, but you can call me Coop, some circles know me as “The Coop,” and others know me as “The Coopinatrix.”  Erm, plead the fifth on that one.  Anyway, I am the primary contributor of a three years running Mets blog called “My Summer Family,” a passionate […]

Mets New Lineup: Reyes 3rd Ahead Of Bay 4th

An article by posted on April 23, 2010 0 Comments

We all know about the on again, off again musings of Jerry Manuel with regards to batting Jose Reyes third in the lineup, a move that Reyes is strongly opposed to. In fact, Manuel had planned on unveiling Reyes in the third spot during the Cardinals series last weekend, but backed off after Reyes began chirping […]

So Maybe The Mets Are a Mess, But There’s Still HOPE!

It’s been almost three months since my last missive (it gets old using the word “blog”) because once the hot stove league season ended (another campaign the Mets lost, by the way), I didn’t think it would be healthy or productive to comment on every twist and turn of spring training or even the first […]

According to Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog, Ike Davis will be wearing uniform number 29 when he takes the field for tonight’s Major League debut against the Chicago Cubs at Citi Field. Over the years, the Mets have had many great players who donned number 29, including one of my favorite Mets of all time, Dave […]
