Does Omar’s Message Still Ring True?

An article by posted on July 17, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

Can Things Get Better? Maybe

An article by posted on July 15, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

Madoff Stole $700 Million From Wilpon!

An article by posted on July 14, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

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.

Will 2009 Be Omar Minaya’s Waterloo?

An article by posted on July 8, 2009 0 Comments

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, […]

Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda: The Jason Marquis Story

An article by posted on July 7, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

Met Fans: Omar Has Failed Us

An article by posted on July 7, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

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 […]

2009 Season: Omar’s Plan Went Bust

An article by posted on July 1, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

Is The Mets Organization Falling Apart?

An article by posted on June 30, 2009 0 Comments

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.  […]

Where Are The Mets Priorities At?

An article by posted on June 27, 2009 0 Comments

These days the Mets are a bit of mess as an organization.  There is almost 70 million dollars sitting on the disabled list, the roster is made up of guys who should be in the minor leagues or at best they are back up guys, the farm system has suffered some blows this past week […]
