(Author’s note: This is just one man’s unbiased, impartial view of Citi Field. In no way am I implying that I am speaking for all Mets fans. Just my thoughts) After surviving a brutally cold winter in the northeast, last Sunday was one of those beautiful spring days that made it all worth it. Upon […]

After last weeks four game losing streak I started to observe our own chat room as well as other Met chat rooms and MLB blogs and some are blaming Omar Minaya for the Mets miserable start this year.  He didn’t sign the big free agents that were available  this past off-season.  Last year he signed […]

Everywhere you go today you’ll read pretty much the same thing. Tops on today’s agenda is of course Oliver Perez and wait until you see what the Mets manager had to say about him. “I don’t know what we do,” Manuel said. “It’s something that has us concerned. It has me concerned. I’ll put it […]

Game Summary The Mets (8-10) were unable to complete a sweep of the Washington Nationals (4-13) thanks to another dismal performance lefthander Olive Perez.

Following yesterday’s game, Mets manager Jerry Manuel spoke to reporters at his post game presser and said that he will use his current starting pitchers one more time through the rotation. But he also cautioned that if things do not get better, he will make some changes. “It’s not rocket science,” Manuel said.  “If they ain’t […]

The Mets could have upgraded the rotation this off season, but instead they chose to bring back the same 1-4 starters and fill the fifth spot with Livan Hernandez who will try to salvage the final game of the series this afternoon against the Cardinals. Manuel was visibly frustrated and not his usual candid self […]

Do We Give Ollie Another Turn in the Rotation?

A 7-2 victory was just what the doctor ordered. Yes! When Ron Darling says that a guy “pitched really well tonight” who am I to dispute? Given the weather and lack of great run support, I agree.

Hey, did anyone else just notice that Oliver Perez didn’t skip over the foul line like he usually does after the first? It’s the first time I’ve seen him end the first inning without his customary hop over the line as he is heading to the dugout. Keith Hernandez just got a chance to speak […]

Gary Sheffield is expected to start in right field for the first time this season. He enters the game with 499 homeruns and may mark the first memorable Mets moment at Citi Field if he hits number 500 at Shea tonight. I’m not exactly sure how to feel about that, but if it’s a game […]

The first week of the season has been one of mixed emotions. It has provided us with both sources for optimism as well as reason for concern. Our hitting is off to a good start. Delgado has continued his offensive onslaught from last year, Beltran and Wright are definitely doing their part, Daniel Murphy is […]
