In all of sports, players regress and at least to me it seems that baseball players regress more than athletes of any other sport. Baseball players regress for any number of reasons: age, injury, failure to adjust to change in the game, etc… What you don’t normally see is regression of executives. I feel that since Omar Minaya took the job of General Manager for the New York Mets he has regressed, specifically after 2006. Once [...]
The inaugural season for Citi Field ends in a few weeks and to say the least it was a very disappointing first year for the Mets new ballpark. At the start of the 2009 season I was hoping that with a new ballpark that had not witness disappointments over the last couple of years the slate would be clean and we could start making new histories for the new ballpark. Unfortunately for us the memories [...]
On 9/9/09, Major League Baseball announced a fan poll contest, called the All-Time 9. What that means is that fans can go to official website of their favorite teams and vote for the best single seasons at a position in team history, with the goal of putting together an all-time lineup. After a quick jaunt to the Mets page, I found quite a nice list of memorable single season stats, some positions deeper than others. [...]
It was the year 2000. The Y2K scare had come and gone. Music fans were wondering who let the dogs out. Mets fans were still cursing out Kenny Rogers for ball four. The nemesis of the day wore a tomahawk on his chest. The Braves were the Mets’ chief rivals in 1999 and 2000. The Mets’ mojo was rising in 1999 and it took them all the way to the sixth game of the National [...]
Here are just a few of things the Mets and New York have planned for tonight’s Home Opener at Citi Field. 1. The Empire State Building will be lit up in honor of the Mets tonight and feature the team colors, blue and orange, to mark the special occasion. Look for the awesome spectacle to begin just before game time and last until midnight. (heck yeah!) 2. Two of our all time greatest Mets will throw [...]
The Washington Nationals have had an offseason to forget (finding out one of their top prospect was fake), but their biggest improvement happened off-the-field with the resignation of GM Jim Bowden. The Nationals were in negotiations with Mark Teixiera before falling short. They did, however, sign perennial 40 HR outfielder Adam Dunn to a 2-year, $20 million contract. They traded for power hitting outfielder Josh Willingham and starter Scott Olsen. They lost Tim Redding to [...]
It’s with some sadness and also great joy to report that Mike Piazza has announced his retirement today. In a statement released by his agent, Mike said the following… “After discussing my options with my wife, family and agent, I felt it was time to start a new chapter in my life. It has been an amazing journey, so today, I walk away with no regrets. I knew this day was coming and over the [...]
