A few moments ago, left-handed reliever Jack Leathersich tweeted the following: Flight to Vegas #GoMets — Jack Leathersich (@LeatherRocket) June 13, 2013 Unless he’s going out to Vegas to play the slots, one would assume he’s getting promoted from Double-A Binghamton to Triple-A Las Vegas. Earlier this week, Sandy Alderson said on WFAN with Mike Francesa he wouldn’t be opposed to promoting minor leaguers straight from Double-A to the major leagues. It looks like Leathersich [...]
Updated at 4:00 PM They criticize me to lower my self esteem but I’m going straight to the top. I was not born to lose. Original Post 1:00 PM “Valdespin knew that was coming. I don’t think it’s fair to say that since we didn’t hit one of the Pittsburgh hitters that he doesn’t have a friend. The notion that he was hung out to dry I think is a mistake. I’m not telling you he’s the most popular guy in [...]
Mets manager Terry Collins was a guest on WFAN this afternoon and lets just say that his whole demeanor about outfielder Jordany Valdespin has done a complete 180. Collins said that Valdespin is the leading candidate to hit in the leadoff spot for the Mets on Opening Day and whenever the Mets are facing a righthanded pitcher. “Right now, the way Valdespin has been swinging the bat in that spot, we’re leaning towards him,” Collins [...]
As Zack Wheeler heads to minor league camp and begins to focus on what he needs to do to ready himself for a potential major league debut later this season with the Mets, let’s consider some of what we did get to see and hear while he was in Mets camp. Wheeler gave a concise self-assessment of his repertoire not too long ago during an interview with WFAN’s Mike Francesa: “I like to come at you [...]
Has anyone been listening to Mike Francesa absolutely kill the Mets on WFAN lately? Most likely many of you have, since Francesa garners a large audience, and rightfully so. He is a knowledgeable sports personality that commands respect based on his reputation. But seriously, talk about something other than degrading the Mets. This whole past week, Francesa has been tearing the Mets apart for their pathetic play. Yes, the Mets are pathetic right now, but [...]
Yesterday, WFAN’s Mike Francesa discussed how Mets broadcasters Howie Rose and Gary Cohen were “out of line” during this past weekend’s Subway Series. Francesa said that it’s great that the Mets have fans as announcers, but that they sometimes take it too far in rooting for their team, especially against the Yankees. Frankly, I love that Rose and Cohen are as die-hard of Mets fans as I am. Yes, I agree that there should be [...]
Thankfully there are only 6 more games left of this horrible season. That also means only 6 more games left of some jerryball. Last year after the season ended the Mets did a bit of a media blitz that concluded with Jeff Wilpon, Omar Minaya and Dave Howard going on WFAN with Mike Francesa. They made a bunch of promises and some excuses that for some reason had Mets fans hopeful for 2010. I posted [...]
Apparently Mike Francesa doesn’t think very highly of us bloggers. Today on his radio program that’s simulcast on the YES network, he went on a rant against Matt Cerrone from MetsBlog. Cerrone wrote a piece today regarding the emergence of Mike Pelfrey, giving him credit for his turnaround. For some reason it irked Francesa so much that it prompted him to say this: “Who cares what Matt Cerrone thinks…he looks like a 12 year old…who [...]
As most of you all know, pending a healthy physical, Jason Bay will soon be introduced to the masses in a press conference within the next few days. While I’m as excited as most of you about his addition to the team, one thing still puzzles me about the events that led to his agreement with the Mets. How did WFAN’s Mike Francesa get the scoop, and manage to keep it such a secret? Like most [...]
