Omar Minaya became the General Manager at the end of the 2004 season. Since then the Mets have mostly been quiet when it comes to the trade deadline. Except for 2006, when Duaner Sanchez went for a cab ride, injured his shoulder, forcing Omar to make a trade with the Pirates for Oliver Perez (thanks a lot Duaner!) and Roberto Hernandez the trade deadline always comes and goes for the Mets. This year looks like […]
When a team in any sport is struggling everyone from the general manager to the coaches/manger to the players take the blame. In some cases like the Mets it’s true. Omar Minaya needs to go as does Jerry Manuel and most of his coaching staff. I know of a certain pitcher making $36 million dollars that’s now in the bullpen that needs to be released and a couple of guys on the bench should be […]
So many indelible moments in life seem to occur in slow motion, sometimes both the good and bad moments. The 2010 Mets season for me has been just that, a slow motion Shakespearean tragedy. Perhaps to some a typically bad CW network soap opera. It’s your choice. The Mets are in my opinion, just about beyond tinkering because the problems are systemic and involve the dreaded “intangibles”. Unfortunately a win here and there only clouds the […]
Forgive the random thoughts here, folks, but I thought it was easier today to touch on a few things rather than elaborate on one thing. The Mets continued their road woes last night with a 3-2 loss to the Braves, and are now 5-13 away from home, and 14-8 at Citi Field. Last year, they were 41-40 at home and 29-52 on the road, so it’s a pattern that has continued. Back in the ’80′s, […]
Baseball is a long season and when a team under-performs the way the Mets are you always hear the usual fire the manger and/or general manager. I support that 100%. Jerry and Omar absolutely need to go. Omar has done a horrible job of building the franchise and Jerry Manuel is just not a manager who can lead a team to a championship. However very rarely do you hear complaints about the coaches on the […]
Coming into Spring Training there was a lot of positive buzz on Oliver Perez. Besides new facial hair he had been working out in Arizona for months getting in shape and trying to work on his pitches. Perez arrived in excellent shape, a complete 180 from the year before. People who follow the team on a daily basis said that Ollie was more focused and ready to earn his 36 million dollar contract. Then came […]
Leave it to the Phillies to temper our expectations. Admittedly, I’m an avid fan of the Mets and Giants, so my hatred of the Phillies and Eagles and Philadelphia fans in general is bordering on unhealthy. But one thing is for sure….the Phillies are damn good, and they kind of woke up the Mets and us fans in a big way this past weekend. Riding an eight game winning streak, including a series opening thumping […]
Maybe I should move more often. My family moved from Tennessee to Wisconsin two weeks ago, and about that time the Mets were slipping deeper and deeper into a funk, starting out with a 2-6 record. It looked like Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya might not last until the end of April with the team. But then something happened. After Mike Pelfrey won a stunning 5-0 decision in Colorado, the Mets took one game out […]
It is re-assuring that at least one person in Metville is happy today: Omar Minaya, the General Manager. He got his requisite victory in St. Louis this weekend. Losing series number four is merely a footnote. The numbers are ugly, friends. Your team resides in last place, two games behind the Washington Nationals and four games from the division leading Phillies. Wave goodbye to Philadelphia because this is the closest the team might be the rest of the […]
