For as bad as the Mets have looked at times this season (and I have advocated blowing up the team or just not paying attention to them anymore), it’s almost miraculous that they are not worse than three games under .500 and 6 ½ games out of first place. When you think about the lousy starting pitching we’ve endured at times, the mental mistakes that seem to multiply, the injuries to most of the key [...]
Mets beat writer Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reported a little while ago in his blog that Bernie Madoff stole $700 million from the Wilpons. That is a lot higher than the originally reported $300 million that the Wilpon’s allegedly lost. Since the scandal broke late last year the Wilpons have not publicly admitted to how much they lost and the impact it’s had on the Mets. In fact since it was first [...]
Michael Baron of MetsBlog had an interesting quote from Jerry Manuel in a post this morning regarding the starting rotation. The Mets have setup their rotation for after the break and it will go as follows beginning with the four games against the Atlanta Braves. Oliver Perez on Thursday (Braves) Mike Pelfrey on Friday (Braves) Johan Santana on Saturday (Braves) Fernando Nieve on Sunday (Braves) Livan Hernandez on Monday (Nationals) Jerry Manuel then told reporters that lefthander Jonathan Niese, [...]
The Los Angeles Dodgers made themselves right at home last night; lounging out at the Ebbet’s Club, sharing stories of their glory days at the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, and then taking the field and bitch-slapping the Mets. The only thing missing were the Dodger Dogs, but they made do with a Nathan’s hot dog instead. Manny was being Manny, but more importantly Manuel was being Manuel, and Omar was being Omar. The Wilpons did a great job of house [...]
Before the injuries started mounting, before the fielding and mental errors began to grow, the Mets’ front office made another error. This error happened in the offseason and it was made by Omar Minaya. The Mets could have acquired Jason Marquis from the Cubs for practically nothing and didn’t pull the trigger. First, as reported by Dan Graziano in the Star-Ledger, the Mets could have sent much-beleaguered reliever Aaron Heilman to the Cubs for Marquis. [...]
I know it sounds like bad dialogue out of a comic book or a Michael Bay movie but it is unfortunately true. Omar over the last couple of years seemed to be the “Teflon GM.” The last 2 seasons we have witnessed the Mets collapse and miss going into the playoffs by one game. Omar did not put a team together the past 2 seasons that played baseball in October. The way the season has [...]
Including today’s game with the Phillies, the Mets have now played 81 games. They’ve reached the midway point of the season battered and bruised, but still breathing. Their record stands at 39-42, leaving them four games behind first place Philadelphia. Somehow, they’ve managed to stay competitive in the standings while occasionally looking pathetic on the field. What does the Magic 8-ball have in store for the second half? Before we shake it up for the [...]
When we look back at the 2009 Met season, we will remember it as the year of injuries. The amount of injuries to hit this ballclub before the All Star Break is simply incredible. Met fans, the press, and Gary Cohen are all imploring G.M. Omar Minaya to make some sort of deal. I am against the Mets making a deal. At least right now. The reason is simple, there are just so many holes [...]
It seems to me that the Mets are in a lot of trouble. I’m not talking about the fact that the Mets are now in 3rd place and are now under .500. I’m talking about the 9 baseball players that are currently on the disabled list or that their salaries equal almost 70 million dollars. The organization itself seems to be in disarray. The organization from top to bottom seem to be throwing each other [...]
