Forgive me for being a backseat general manager, but after ever Raul Ibanez home run, do you cringe a little like me?

An article by posted on May 26, 2009 0 Comments

This team when it comes to handling injuries is just horrible.  We saw it last year with Ryan Church’s concussion in Atlanta.  The Mets gave him a game off, flew him to Colorado and had him playing while suffering a concussion.  It was a major setback to the season as Church was not the same […]

Injuries, poor performance, Jerry’s invisible dog house, and expectations that were way off, have shaped the current Mets into something nobody could have imagined on April 1st. Omar’s master plan had too many holes and much like last season, it’s success was hinging on a huge contribution from a soon to be 37-year old slugger in […]

What a difference a week and a half can make. Just ten days ago, we were all throwing stones, pointing fingers and placing blame. Omar should be fired. Wright should be traded. Delgado should be benched. Reyes should stop smiling so much. Things seemingly have changed almost overnight. The same team that was 10-13 and […]

Last week I wrote about Oliver Perez and the decision of Omar Minaya and the Mets to send him into the bullpen.  The next day the Mets decided to put Ollie on the disabled list (DL).  The reason provided by the Mets was that after an MRI it was determined that Ollie was suffering patella […]
