We Were Bamboozled!

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 […]

The Mets got a double dose of bad news on the pitching front when setup man J.J. Putz was shutdown for the season after suffering a setback while rehabbing in Florida. Yesterday, Omar Minaya said that Putz’ scheduled rehab appearance had been canceled to give him an extra day of rest, but a few hours […]

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 […]

This Organization Is A Joke!

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 […]

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, […]

It was only a matter of time until the Gary Sheffield story, as it pertains to the Mets, would take a turn for the ugly. However, I’m hanging this on Omar Mianay and not Gary Sheffield. Here is the latest… SI.com’s Jon Heyman tweeted that the Giants were the team that claimed Gary Sheffield and prompted the […]

Angels Should Be the Mets Blueprint

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, […]

The Mets Need to be BOLD

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, […]

Almost Like It Was, 30 Years Ago

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 […]

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 […]
