In Doug’s Dugout today we discuss: The Status Quo, Changes, and other mindless random thoughts.   The best part of going on vacation is returning to the comforting surroundings of home.  At least, that’s what I tell my kids.  If you don’t like sleeping in your own bed then buy a new mattress.  Came back from […]

No,  I haven’t lost my mind. I don’t think Oliver Perez is a good player at all.  Ollie is not a team player, he plays for the name on the back of the jersey.  Perez has shown that he has no inclination to work on improving his game and giving something back to the team […]

Hey Wilpons, You Can’t Have It Both Ways

After last night’s 14 inning marathon, I was very proud of the outstanding job by both R.A. Dickey and our bullpen. The bullpen has shined since Hisanori Takahashi returned.

Almost as predictable as the Mets falling short in the wins column these days is the projected fall-out that occurs after each loss.  Every beat writer or sports news outlet is trying to find the scapegoat.  I find that laughable, since I believe Jerry Manuel, Howard Johnson or Omar Minaya are symptoms of a larger […]

Oliver Perez Is Our Recurring Nightmare

An article by posted on August 2, 2010 0 Comments

Let me start by saying that I’m not hanging yesterday’s loss on Oliver Perez. The game was lost and completely out of hand long before he took the hill in the eighth inning. In fact that’s why he came into the game… The only time we see Ollie now, is when a win becomes as […]
