Thursday Ramblings

An article by posted on February 7, 2008

It has been a pretty good week for New York sports. First the Giants knock off the Patriots and win the Super Bowl, then Mets fans off season dreams became a reality with the introduction of Johan Santana. Forgive my childlike enthusiasm, but off season press conferences are kind of like Christmas morning…except they don’t […]

To Believe, or Not to Believe

An article by posted on December 1, 2007

In the past 24 hours, we have all been bombarding this site and message boards with varying opinions on the Lastings Milledge trade. Most of the opinions are panning it, citing Milledge’s’ upside, youth, energy and the lack of Church/Schneider’s’ qualities in the same areas. Church strikes out too much, Schneider can’t hit… Mets ownership […]

Where’s The Yankee Roast?

An article by posted on November 25, 2007

On Thanksgiving Day, Wallace Matthews basically wrote an article just for the sake of bashing the Mets. He could have probably gotten away with that since Newsday is based in New York. Outside of the state of New York, I assure you, Wallace Matthews would be without a job. There’s a fine line in journalism that […]

It’s Official: Castillo Back For A Second Helping

An article by posted on November 20, 2007

Omar Minaya himself announced that Luis Castillo was signed, sealed and delivered yesterday evening. There was no pulling out of negotiations this time, as had been the case with Yorvit Torrealba. Castillo, 32, joins Damion Easley, Ramon Castro, Moises Alou and Ramon Castro as the only Mets that have been retained since the season ended. The scrappy […]

The Most Wonderful Dream

An article by posted on September 28, 2007

Last night I had the most wonderful dream. I was back in New York and at Shea Stadium for the last game of the 2007 World Series. The Mets and Indians had played themselves into a 3- 3 series tie thanks to some late inning heroics by Guillermo Mota, who struck out the side in […]

Conine the Barbarian: What The Mets Need?

An article by posted on August 24, 2007

As pessimistic as a Mets fan can be at times (especially at the end of a close game), I am beginning to feel a small sense of hope. The tune of many bogs including one of mine has been whether or not Omar Minaya was going to do something to provide a spark in the […]

A Mets Fan in Braves Country

An article by posted on August 20, 2007

Sullivan County, New York is where I was born and raised. Only minutes from the original Woodstock site and 2 hours west of my Graceland. That is, Shea Stadium in Queens, New York. Today, I live in a small town in rural Alabama called Clanton. The area is nice, people are great and the fried […]

How I “Met” the American Pastime

An article by posted on July 30, 2007

I love New York. No, really, I mean it – I looooove New York. Born in Flushing just minutes from Shea, it was inevitable that I would grow up to be a Mets fan. Dad was a die-hard fan; so was Mom. Both were originally Brooklyn Dodgers fans, growing up in Brooklyn. So it was no […]

Spring Training Camp Opens, Here Come The Mets!

An article by posted on February 11, 2007

ESPN, they had a great article by Phil Rogers who ranked all the outfields in baseball, and I was surprised to see the Mets ranked at number 4. Only the Angels, Tigers, and Braves were ranked higher. I thought it was ironic because besides all the comments and questions I get from fans concerned about […]
