We can debate all day and year long whether or not the Mets’ awful season is the fault of Jerry Manuel, Omar Minaya, the Wilpons, or the Injuries, or a combination of all of them. But there is one thing I want to see happen this off-season. Omar needs to make more than one big move this time to improve the club. Two years ago he pulled the trigger on bringing in Johan Santana, and […]
Everywhere you turned yesterday, the top story, as far as us Mets fans are concerned, was the Mets road show of Jeff Wilpon, Omar Minaya and Dave Howard. One or all of them appeared at Citi Field where they kicked off their tour, followed by some candid one on ones with various SNY personalities and celebrated New York sports writers. Finally, it was off to their last stop of the evening at WFAN studios in Queens with the king of New […]
While appearing during his regular weekly spot with Mike Francesa on WFAN, Jerry Manuel sounded more like a general manager at times than he did a manager. When asked if he was intrigued by any of the starting pitchers and if any one starting pitcher caught his eye as far as the 2010 rotation, Manuel gave no ringing endorsements, and instead he offered quite the contrary. “I think the guys we have here now are good […]
While the 2009 is coming mercifully to a close on Sunday for one of the most awful Mets teams in quite some time, one that might lose 95 games, it might be worth it for this team to look across Manhattan and into the Meadowlands to see how a pro sports team should be run. I could mention that team in the Bronx, but $423 million had something to do those guys reaching the postseason […]
Last week it was revealed that after the last game of the season (which cannot come soon enough for me) that Jerry Manuel will sit down with Omar Minaya along with Fred and Jeff Wilpon to discuss the future of the coach staff which consists of Howard Johnson (hitting coach), Dan Warthen (pitching coach), Luis Alicea (1B coach), Razor Shines (3B coach) and Sandy Alomar Sr. (bench coach). Word going around is that Howard Johnson’s […]
An interesting piece appeared in the NY Post this morning by Mike Puma, who spoke to Jeff Francoeur about Rockies pitcher Jason Marquis who will be a free agent this off season. Jeff Francoeur told The Post yesterday that Marquis, whom he considers a close friend, desperately wants to pitch for the Mets next season, even as the veteran right-hander focuses on helping the Rockies clinch a wild-card berth. “He’d love to come here,” Francoeur — who […]
I just looked through some notes of mine from the start of the season, and found this article previewing the NL East by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. Here is an excerpt of how he felt about the Mets heading into 2009: Two years, two chokes. The Mets have gotten good at this. And, sure, the bullpen was a big issue, so seeing J.J. Putz and Francisco Rodriguez in the eighth and ninth innings will […]
I know we still have almost a month to go before the 2009 regular baseball season is over but lets face facts the Mets season ended in July. It’s time for the Mets and us the fans to look to 2010. This past week Josh Thole joined the Mets for their series in Colorado. Thole had his first major league game last Thursday going 2-for-5 on the day and stole 2nd base. He had a […]
The New York Mets have released a statement that they will not be altering the dimensions of Citi Field for the 2010 season based on the recommendations of Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel. Ed Eagle of Mets.com writes, The Mets’ franchise legacy has been built upon strong pitching, and they’ll need to continue to focus on that aspect of their team-building to be successful in their new home in the future. Citing a team source, the New […]
