Omar Minaya was hired prior to the 2005 season to turn around the floundering New York Mets. The team and its management were in chaos. The Mets had completed three consecutive losing seasons with 86, 95, and 91 losses. The low point occurred in 2004 when the Mets traded top prospect Scott Kazmir for Victor Zambrano. During his first winter on the job, Omar signed Pedro Martinez and Carlos Beltran. The Mets were moving in […]
When Julio Franco was a Met, he vowed to play until he was 50. That didn’t happen, but the way Omar Minaya has put this team together, the Mets might have a few AARP members before too long. When the 2009 season began, more than half of the 25-man roster (13 players in all) was on the wrong side of age 30. Of those 13 players, only three of them made it out of the […]
Last week the World Series finally ended, our nightmare season is finally over and the Hot Stove season has started. There have been trades already, options picked up or bought out and players have filed for free agency. Trade rumors are already out there, most of them so far unfounded this early and it’s only November 10th. Last week after the World Series the Mets decided rightfully so to decline the 9 million dollar option […]
On Friday, veteran sports writer Marty Noble wrote a great column which was featured on mets.com. Noble reveals some of the buzz surrounding the Mets front office, including some potential strategies and even some of the specific players that they may be targeting this offseason. The Mets have not said publicly which players most interest them, but people within the organization who are familiar with the club’s thinking have mentioned Holliday, Bay, Lackey, Marquis, Wolf, Cameron, Hudson, Glaus and two […]
I guess writing for this awesome site has been good for something this off season–it’s forced me to think about the Mets at least once a week. Because honestly, I haven’t been thinking about them much since their season ended a month ago. In fact, since I’m being honest, I didn’t watch many games after the wheels came off following the all-star break (and I know many of you are with me on that!). And […]
This is a story making the rounds on the web the last 2 days and it has really started to pick up steam. According to ESPN.com’s Peter Gammons, Mets COO Jeff Wilpon is the real general manager for the New York Mets and Omar Minaya is just a puppet, designed to take the heat when seasons like 2009 occur. Gammon was on Michael Kay’s radio show yesterday and Kay asked Gammon’s about Omar hiring hitting […]
The New York Times had an interesting article this past Sunday about the Mets handling of Jose Reyes’ injury. October 5, 2009, the day after the last game of the 2009 season, a season in which for the third straight year the Mets failed to make the post season Jeff Wilpon and the Mets had a media blitz, talking about what went wrong in 2009, what to expect in 2010 and the injuries that occurred […]
Here is some background about me in regards to Daniel Murphy. I fully admit I am a “mark,” for him. In August of 2008, I went on mets.com and bought a blue Mets t-shirt with Mr. Met on the front and Murphy’s name and number on the back. It’s a pretty awesome shirt to be honest, and the fact I had it before almost anybody else gives me a slight sense of pride when I […]
With the 2009 season finally over, the rebuilding for 2010 officially has started. Yesterday Jeff Wilpon along with Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya had a press conference, discussing this horrible 2009 season and what to look forward to for the 2010 season. Later on in the afternoon/early evening Jeff Wilpon, Omar Minaya and Dave Howard went on WFan to talk with Mike Francesa. Fred Wilpon reiterated in the press conference as well as on the […]
