Optimists Have Their Day In The Sun

An article by posted on April 6, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday, opening day, the optimists ruled. The naysayers out there already have their rebuttals. “You had Santana pitching, you should have won. Now lets see what you’ve got”. Perhaps they are right. Certainly 2009, nor this most recent spring training has given even the most loyal Mets fans some ill conceived notions that this team […]

In 2000, Mike Hampton helped the Mets win the National League pennant.  After the Mets lost the World Series to the Yankees, Hampton left New York for the better school systems in Colorado.  (The $121 million given to him over the course of the eight years he signed for had nothing to do with it.)

Go East, Young Men!

An article by posted on March 4, 2010 0 Comments

Much of what dominates Mets talk and is bandied about is whether the Mets will have a successful season in ’10. Can Big Pelf live up to his “potential”? (Don’t you just love that word?) Will Reyes be his old self or even better? Can the #3 through #5 pitchers keep us in games consistently? […]

Last week, when Johan Santana was asked by a reporter who the best pitcher in the NL East was, without hesitation he replied, “Santana”.

Imagine how well situated the Mets would be if they could some how find the resources to sign Josh Bla-Bar-Omir to be their starting catcher for the 2010 season. Signing Josh Blabaromir would do wonders for a fanbase that still thirsts for one more big signing. It could also be the move that finally puts the […]

2010 Outlook: Phillies – Mets Phans Phear A Phour-peat

An article by posted on February 4, 2010 0 Comments

Three straight NL East crowns and one World Series victory have catapulted the Philadelphia Phillies into Atlanta Braves territory as far as Mets rivalries go.  There is nothing worse than obnoxious Phillies fans coming up the Turnpike and invading Citi Field as the Phillies beat up on the Mets as they have done the past […]
