It only took the Mets 14 days into the New Year to embarrass themselves and their fans. Of course I’m talking about the whole debacle over Carlos Beltran’s knee surgery. Once again the Mets completely mishandled the news of an injury to a key player on their team. Some that should have been simple has exploded in the face of the Mets… again. Go back to last year and the press conference from hell where […]
I have to be honest, I didn’t think GM Omar Minaya had it in him to land Jason Bay. I was ready to chalk up the 2010 season to rebuilding and maybe finishing in fourth place, but Minaya’s pursuit and subsequent landing of Bay to play left field for the Mets and possibly bat cleanup has changed my outlook of this team. Not entirely, of course, but this is a solid move that injects a […]
Last week, I wrote of Omar Minaya and remarked about him actually using learnings from past mistakes and exhibiting patience and being prudent in the face of enormous pressure. I commend him for not giving in to the heat of talk radio and the national media in general, and opinions calling for his dismissal on the Mets own network, SNY. He stuck to his plan and now has what appears to be an agreement with […]
Well Met fans, “Omar the Patient” continues to wait the marketplace out. But in reality as we all scream about our lack of moves to date, we should realize that Omar is actually being intelligent about this right now. He’s holding firm on being financially responsible as it pertains to Bay and Molina. Does that mean we can’t be angry about some of his foolish signings of the past like Luis Castillo or Oliver Perez? […]
If Omar ever decides to get aggressive and sign Jason Bay the way he did with certain other players, what happens with our “untouchable phenom” Fernando Martinez? On the last day of the winter meetings the Mets offered Jason Bay a deal that is believed to be around $65 million dollars for 4 years. One of the reasons the Mets didn’t go after a left fielder last season, and opted to go with Daniel Murphy […]
My blood boils with each passing day of the Hot Stove season. While the Mets keep signing guys like Alex Cora, Chris Coste and Henry Blanco, the Phillies, Yankees, Red Sox and even Mariners keep making big moves involving the likes of Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, Curtis Granderson and probably John Lackey. I knew the Mets wouldn’t be players in the offseason, because Omar Minaya and the Wilpons are, quite frankly, morons. They have failed […]
Yesterday, the Mets set aside all the drama of their not-so-hot-stove season for a good cause at their Annual Mets Holiday Party. Jeff Francoeur played the part of St. Nick and he and his fellow Mets elves brought some much needed joy and smiles to school children from all five boros of the city. By all accounts it was a grand time for everyone.. Well almost everyone… Omar Minaya was the target of most of the beat writers and reporters who […]
As the final day of the Winter Meetings comes to a close, the Mets fly back to New York much like the same team that arrived on Sunday. Any and all dreams of blockbuster trades and big free agent signings slowly dissipate into the same pessimistic feelings we ended the season with. There will be no press conferences to announce a major signing like last year when the Mets made so much noise. Instead we […]
As we all sit back and wait for Omar Minaya to make that blockbuster trade or signing, only to see him sign more mediocre players, reality is starting to set in. If this hot stove pattern continues — and I’m sorry, Minaya has given us no reason to believe otherwise – the Mets in 2010 could easily be a fourth place team, and maybe even fifth. First of all, the Phillies are not exactly going […]
