There seriously must be something brewing in the New York water supply and it’s having a mind numbing, logic nullifying, neuron destroying effect on it’s resident billionaires. How else can you explain the actions- or non-actions- of New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon to not right his sinking ship by tossing General Manager Omar Minaya and Manager Jerry Manuel overboard at this point? Or Knicks owner James Dolan for his quizzical attempt to re-hire former […]
Almost as predictable as the Mets falling short in the wins column these days is the projected fall-out that occurs after each loss. Every beat writer or sports news outlet is trying to find the scapegoat. I find that laughable, since I believe Jerry Manuel, Howard Johnson or Omar Minaya are symptoms of a larger problem. I can’t believe that letting any of those guys go will help in the short or long term, except […]
According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets’ reign of error is set to continue into 2011. Fred Wilpon will retain Omar Minaya for the 2011 season. The team’s principal owner, Fred Wilpon, on Thursday said he is planning to stick with general manager Omar Minaya beyond this year, despite the threat of a second straight losing season. Wilpon, in East Hartford, Conn., to help announce a new partnership between SNY and […]
I realize this is the unpopular counterpoint, but… 1. We’re Broke Look, I don’t have access to the Wilpon’s financial records. There are so many reports on the state of their finances that it’s hard to tell fact from fiction, but actions speak louder than words. The Mets are either unwilling or unable to take on salary. How do I know that? Well, if we could have, then we would have been able to get […]
I’m like most Mets fans, I’m eternally hopeful almost to the tipping point of naivete. Perhaps it’s just the way most of us have grown up as Mets fans, always believing yet more times than not, having our hearts ripped out and handed to us, Temple of Doom style. Yet our loyalty always remains as constant as the northern star. Some of us take baseball for what it literally is, a kids game played by […]
I came across an interesting article on MetsBlog, well a Tweet really, but basically it read: MLB note: in the last 366 days, the Phils have traded away 8 of their top 10 prospects from 2009, and 4 of their top 6 prospects from 2010. It was originally tweeted by chrisguzy I wound up having a little debate about it with a friend, who said, The Phillies also have two World Series trips in that […]
In 2007, 2008 and now in 2010 the Mets needed to upgrade their team during the season by making a trade. In 2007 the Mets needed to add a starter to the rotation. They did not add a starting pitcher and wound up having an epic collapse. The Mets didn’t end making trade as Omar would go onto say “nothing really made sense.” The 2008 New York Mets desperately needed an arm in the bullpen, […]
According to Andy Martino of the Daily News, Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya’s jobs are safe for now. The Mets have lost six of seven games since the All-Star break, but all indications are that manager Jerry Manuel and general manager Omar Minaya are in no immediate danger of losing their jobs. Minaya is making a scheduled trip to Los Angeles for this weekend’s series against the Dodgers, but the visit is routine. Either Minaya […]
If the past helps dictate the present, I have high doubts that Omar Minaya will make a move, any move, good or bad, to help this team at the trading deadline. Why is that? Well, when has he EVER been aggressive at the trading deadline? Or with trades, period? I had a conversation on Twitter a few nights ago about Minaya, actually, about this very topic. Our consensus was while we thought him to be […]
