Shea Deserves Better Than This

An article by posted on September 27, 2008

Okay, it might not be as storied as Yankee Stadium but it still doesn’t change the fact that Shea Stadium is also closing, being knocked down, and destined to be a parking lot for Citi Field. I’m angry with the Mets right now. It seems like every year around this time, we turn into a […]

The Price Of Failure Can Be Costly

An article by posted on September 27, 2008

The Mets are desperate. “We really, really have put ourselves in a tough spot,” manager Jerry Manuel said. “And we’re the only ones to blame for that. We had opportunities and didn’t get it done.” Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Mets are asking Johan Santana to pitch on three days rest and start in […]

Almost to the exact day as last year, the Mets find themselves again on the verge of elimination at the hands of the Florida Marlins.

Mets Magic Starts with Santana

An article by posted on April 3, 2008

Okay, okay, another "Johan is great" post that’s probably three days late. But with good reason. I didn’t want to write a blog entry that said: "Johan’s awesome!!!! He struck out 8 Marlins!!!! Mets are going all the way!!!!" There’s more to Johan Santana than his strikeout-to-walk ratio. Or the number of innings he pitches. Or […]

Opening Day…Well, They’re Not Exactly Jitters

An article by posted on March 28, 2008

The Mets have not decided on a fifth starter this far into Spring Training. They’re saying Jorge Sosa may get the job, with both Brian Stokes and Joe Smith able to prove themselves worthy of the bullpen. Both Mike Pelfrey and El Duque aren’t ready to start, but I think Pelfrey will be ready before […]
