This latest media hub bub regarding three Mets really has my blood boiling. No, not about what you think – the fact that it’s a story to begin with, that’s what gets me. I guess the Mets having another subpar season isn’t enough for local sports writers these days and adding fuel to the Mets fans fires with the three particular players in question will sell more papers, I suppose. I actually don’t have a […]
The Mets so far have had one of the best seasons of any team in Major League Baseball…seriously. I know you must think Spector’s finally lost it. Follow me on this one. The Mets this season have fielded about 15 players who have actually contributed – a far cry from the normal 25 man roster. Let’s reminisce and go back to early Spring – Port St. Lucie – when hope was abundant – when we […]
In Doug’s Dugout today we discuss: The Status Quo, Changes, and other mindless random thoughts. The best part of going on vacation is returning to the comforting surroundings of home. At least, that’s what I tell my kids. If you don’t like sleeping in your own bed then buy a new mattress. Came back from two weeks in Maine (a plug for Acadia National Park) and was sad to learn the Mets are in the […]
After a shaky end to a solid R.A. Dickey outing, the Mets showed some fight, coming from behind late to defeat the Marlins 6-5. Game Notes R.A. Dickey had a solid outing today, and everything was going smoothly until the seventh inning. In that inning, R.A. allowed the first two hitters he faced to reach, and after a ground-out fielders choice and a pop-out, he allowed a three-run home run to Gaby Sanchez. Dickey’s final […]
About 2 weeks ago principal owner Fred Wilpon was asked about Omar Minaya’s job status after the 2010 season. Clueless Fred responded by saying: “Is the sun coming up tomorrow?” I cannot understand where this vote of confidence is coming from. Omar Minaya has been the General Manager since the end of the 2004 season. In that time Omar has built a team that went to the playoffs ONCE! As we all know in 2007 […]
There’s a joke going around in the Mets clubhouse these days. Perhaps you’ve heard about it. It involves the underachieving, soon-to-be 35-year-old second baseman who wanted out of New York despite the fact that he was given a long-term contract worth more money than anyone else would have paid him. What’s that? You haven’t heard the joke yet? Well, let me tell you the story about Luis Castillo, the man who recently told the New […]
Update 1:30 PM According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Mets rightfielder Jeff Francoeur has cleared waivers and can now be dealt to any organization. Trading Francoeur does make sense, but I’m not so sure we will get much for him. Some rumors are floating that Fernando Martinez may have been called up to showcase him for a potential offseason trade. It sounds like pure speculation and conjecture to me. Original Post 12:00 PM According to Mike […]
Almost as predictable as the Mets falling short in the wins column these days is the projected fall-out that occurs after each loss. Every beat writer or sports news outlet is trying to find the scapegoat. I find that laughable, since I believe Jerry Manuel, Howard Johnson or Omar Minaya are symptoms of a larger problem. I can’t believe that letting any of those guys go will help in the short or long term, except […]
Mike Pelfrey was ineffective yet again today, and the Mets lost the game and the series to the Braves, falling today 8-3. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey was hit hard today, not even making it out of the fifth inning. Big Pelf was a Big Letdown today, giving up five runs, with only three being earned thanks to some errors. Pelf struck out one and walked two, and gave up eight hits including two home runs […]
