This week, Sports Illustrated magazine has come out with their annual “Where Are They Now” issue. There are two articles in the issue that are so good, I feel the need to comment on them.

The Mets finally snapped their four-game losing streak with a 5-4 win over the Dodgers on Wednesday night. Oliver Perez made his long anticipated return to the mound, but he was as erratic as ever as he toiled through five innings while throwing 108 pitches. He allowed just two runs and was very lucky it wasn’t a […]

A thought occurred to me last night as the score reached 7-0 Dodgers—I don’t have to watch this crap if I don’t want to.  Not that there’s much on TV besides baseball during the summer except horrible reality shows and re-runs, but I’d rather see anything these days besides watching our Mets get trounced and […]

Ruben Tejada does not get a lot of hype, but there are aspects of him that are very interesting, and one of the most intriguing is his age. I had no idea until recently (this season) that during this baseball season he will turn just 19 years old. I thought he was much older than that. […]

Before the injuries started mounting, before the fielding and mental errors began to grow, the Mets’ front office made another error.  This error happened in the offseason and it was made by Omar Minaya.  The Mets could have acquired Jason Marquis from the Cubs for practically nothing and didn’t pull the trigger.

Met Fans: Omar Has Failed Us

An article by posted on July 7, 2009 0 Comments

I know it sounds like bad dialogue out of a comic book or a Michael Bay movie but it is unfortunately true.  Omar over the last couple of years seemed to be the “Teflon GM.”  The last 2 seasons we have witnessed the Mets collapse and miss going into the playoffs by one game.  Omar […]

An article by posted on July 6, 2009 0 Comments

Watching the Mets this past weekend ranked slightly above the on goings with the Kardashian Clan, but below C-Span. Anytime your hometown team averages one run per game, in the bandbox known as Citizen’s Bank Ballpark, it is a frustrating and sleepy endeavor. Regardless of who appears in the daily lineup. Right now the Mets […]
