Maybe DePo As Future Mets GM Isn’t Such A Smart Idea?

An article by posted on November 7, 2011 0 Comments

To add to Hojo’s post below, I came across some comments that Paul DePodesta made in which he discussed the job of being a general manager. It certainly didn’t sound like someone who aspires to be a GM again in the future. Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times, still refers to DePo as a […]

Good For Backman

An article by posted on November 7, 2011 0 Comments

I like that Wally Backman was finally offered the Mets’ Triple-A managerial job. It appeared Backman would take a bench coach job with Washington, which I said he should take because at the time the Mets didn’t offer him the Triple-A position. Well, the Mets did offer that job and it is good he stays […]

With the Phillies and Braves seemingly in command of their division and wild card leads respectively, the Mets continue to hover around the .500 mark in the dog days of August, as they have all season. As manager Terry Collins and general manager Sandy Alderson have said repeatedly the past two weeks, all of the […]

Stop The Insanity! Domonic Brown For Beltran Is Pure Fantasy!

Once upon a time, in a land where Oreo Cookies grow on trees, and it always rained Skittles upon the land, the Mets acquired uber-prospect Domonic Brown from the Phillies from whence the Hershey River flowed. In return for their wonderful haul, the Mets happily exchanged their 34-year old right fielder with two bad knees, who adoring fans lovingly […]

3 Up & 3 Down: When Cali Came To Town

An article by posted on June 24, 2011 0 Comments

The California Angels and the Oakland A’s were in Citi Field during this Mets last homestand. The most encouraging thing I can say about it is that the Mets played .500, losing two of three to the Angels, while winning two of three from Oakland. Sorry folks, but these match-ups against the American League West don’t […]

Thole May Soon Be Riding the Pine

An article by posted on May 4, 2011 0 Comments

After last night’s 7-6 loss to the Giants, manager Terry Collins was asked if Josh Thole’s recent poor defensive performance can land the young catcher into a reserve catcher role. “That’s a possibility. And not just that, but to also maybe let Josh have a chance to clear his head a little bit.” Thole disagreed […]

Let Pelfrey Benefit From Some Time In Triple-A

An article by posted on May 2, 2011 0 Comments

Everyone knows how terribly Mike Pelfrey has performed at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies have teed off on him and have produced at a 1.10 OPS clip against him. Pelfrey has a 9.55 ERA at CBP and a 2.15 WHIP. As Bob Klapisch of The Record wrote, “this is where Pelfrey’s sinkers have historically met their doom”. Pelfrey […]

One Thing Is Clear; Terry Collins Is No Jerry Manuel

Were any of you wondering what transpired the other day in Atlanta, when Daniel Murphy tried to steal third base and was out by a mile? You may remember an enraged (or was it embarrassed) Terry Collins taking Murphy into the back of the dugout as soon as trotted off the field with his head down. […]

True or False – Are The Mets Still Indecisive?

An article by posted on March 15, 2011 0 Comments

David Lennon of Newsday believes that not much has changed with the way the Mets are doing things even with a front office overhaul and new manager at the reins. “Been away for a few days, but it could have been a few years because nothing changes with the Mets. Even with an overhaul of […]
