Say what you will about Mets ownership, but one thing they have shown is that they are 100% loyal to G.M. Omar Minaya. Since Carlos Beltran (remember him), was caught looking to end the 2006 playoff run for the Mets, the team has been in a state of steady decline. The Collapse of 2007 is still an open wound to me. The fact that the Mets rolled over and played dead during September was and [...]
I’ve supported Omar Minaya ever since he first took the reins of the New York Mets after the 2004 season. He took an organization that was in complete disarray and put the Mets back on the map. He said that the Mets would be rebuilt and taken seriously, and he gave us his five year plan that would make the Mets significant again, competitive, a contender and so much more. Wow, what a vision… I [...]
According to a new entry on Bart Hubbuch’s Mets blog for the NY Post, Mets minor league players were not the only ones subjected to the mad ravings of Mets VP Tony Bernazard. Bart Hubbuch writes, It turns out that ripping his shirt off and challenging minor-league players to fight him isn’t even Tony Bernazard’s most recent incident of outrageous, hot-headed conduct. New York Mets All-Star closer Frankie Rodriguez confirmed this afternoon that he exchanged words on [...]
That was the statement the New York Mets released today regarding the firestorm surrounding a report that Joe posted earlier today regarding Mets VP of Player Development. Who do the Mets think they are fooling? They knew about these incidents long before they leaked out thanks in great part to the investigative efforts of Adam Rubin of the Daily News. They had this information in their hands since prior to the All Star break, but [...]
Welcome, class. Today we will discuss whether the Mets should become buyers or sellers at next week’s trade deadline. We will consider every option before making our final decision. We will look at the standings in the National League East and the Wild Card race and we will look at which players might be made available for trading purposes. We will also look at which players the Mets might be willing to part with should [...]
Yesterday on his twitter Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman posted the following: “minaya, manuel have been told by mets boss jeff wilpon they wont be fired over this painful season.” This organization continues to amaze me. The past 2 seasons have ended with the Mets missing the post season by 1 game, losing that important 1 game the last day of the season. The Wilpons decide before the Madoff scandal broke that they want a lower [...]
To sell, or not to sell. That is the question. However, the answer is not as easy as you might think. If the Mets become sellers, then Omar Minaya will be rubber stamping this season which was engineered by him, as a failure. If the Mets become buyers, and they still don’t make it, then the fans will be rubber stamping Omar Minaya as a failure. What a choice huh? Newsday’s David Lennon is doing [...]
For the first time in six years, the Mets began the second half of the season with a loss, falling a season-low 7 1/2 games behind the division leading Phillies. As if that wasn’t enough, last night the Mets were handed their second straight loss after the break, their eighth shutout of the season, and their fourth shutout in the last nine games. Oh, did I mention that they broke their own season-low record from just [...]
As the second half of the season commenced last night, with a loss to a familiar foe (curses Chipper), it’s time for Mets fans to slam the door on the resident traveling salesman, Omar Minaya. (When he rings the bell close the blinds) Because whatever he’s selling; vacuum cleaners, encyclopedias, and most importantly-HOPE, you should not be buying (or listening). For weeks leading up to the All-Star break the mantra was, “Get to the Break,” [...]
