Going into the 2009 season hopes were high for the Mets. Most people believed that once the Mets signed Francisco “K-Rod” Rodriguez that all the problems from last year were solved. Last year the bullpen killed us in our race to the playoff’s but that was not the only reason why missed out of the playoff’s. The offense was not getting it done towards the end of last season, remember in the last 3 game […]
Omar Minaya earlier today had a telephone conference with reporters that was broadcast on SNY. As usual when Omar has a press conference he continues to make the Mets look silly. Omar said that he could not recall that Johan Santana had an elbow injury during Spring Training. What planet is Omar living on? Here is a link from MLB.com Johan’s exam canceled after session. In the piece dated March 1, 2009 Omar Minaya says […]
Yesterday it came out that Johan Santana would miss his next start and go see a doctor for his ailing pitching elbow. Another day and another Met injury no longer surprises me anymore with this Mickey Mouse organization but what does surprise me is that the Mets knew about this and did NOTHING! Johan Santana is one of the best pitchers in the game, he’s the ace of the embarrassing starting rotation for the Mets […]
As somebody who thinks Omar Minaya (along with Jerry Manuel) need to be fired so that this franchise can move forward and start with a fresh slate, I am however, a rare commodity. I think the signing of Oliver Perez is NOT one that should cost Minaya his job. I read it on this site, other sites, and hear it on talk radio from fans. To quote directly from a fan post today on this […]
If you could come back as a fan of another baseball team, and could not choose the Mets obviously, who would you pick? The team I’d pick is a team I’d love to see the NY Mets begin modeling their franchise after. A Big market team, an energized fan base, a team built with speed, pitching, fundamentals and solid player development. I’d be a fan of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Angels in one […]
As one of Omar Minaya’s biggest supporters, I do believe it will be time to demote him after this season. When you take a look around the big leagues, you notice there are eight teams that will continue to operate with a team salary of over $100 million. Those teams are the Yankees, Mets, Cubs, Red Sox, Tigers, Angels, Phillies and Dodgers. There seems to be one glaring difference between their General Managers and ours, […]
Winston Churchill said “those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it”, and with the 2009 Mets that seems to the case. Come back in time with me 30 or so years. Its the late 1970′s. Mrs. Payson has died and left her beloved Mets to her daughter, Lorinda De Roulet, who does not share her mother’s love of baseball and the Mets. She granted general manager M. Donald Grant complete control […]
Did any of you see the cover story of the USA Today sports page yesterday? If you didn’t, here is a link, but let me warn you—it’s going to make you both angry and jealous. It’s about Phillies’ rookie GM Ruben Amaro, Jr., and how the guy has earned the respect of his players by not only going out and grabbing what turned out to be a tremendous free agent in Raul Ibanez over the […]
According to Matt Cerrone and Adam Rubin, Omar Minaya could be getting phased out in favor of John Ricco who is currently the Assistant GM of the Mets. They also speculate that there could be a swap of roles where Omar slips into a player development role, while Ricco becomes the front man. I’m no longer a big fan of Omar, as readers of this site fully know, but if we are going to replace […]
