Coming into 2010 we knew that there would be questions regarding the pitching, we knew that there were guys coming back from injuries and we also knew that the Mets needed a good start for Jerry Manuel to keep his job as the manager. The Mets haven’t started good, losing their first 2 series to the Marlins and Nationals at home. They’re currently 2-4 in the standings putting them in last place in the division. […]
It’s hard to believe the euphoria of Opening Day took place but a week ago. Since the Mets won Game One they have lost 4 out of 5, and two consecutive home series against Florida and Washington. Not the Sterling start this team wanted-or more importantly, needed. Then came yesterday’s revelation by Jerry Manuel that the team was not “prepared” for the slop served up by former Mets number five starter, Livan Hernandez (he must’ve felt vindicated a […]
This Spring we’ve gotten to look at some of our young prospects and they have impressed fans, the media and the team. The reports that the farm system was dead have been greatly exaggerated it seems. Fernando Martinez, Ike Davis, Jon Niese and Jenrry Mejia are having great springs, so of course there has been plenty of talk about them joining the big team once camp breaks. Coming into Spring Training, the fifth sport in the […]
It’s so easy for us to say the Mets are a dysfunctional franchise. We’ve certainly bared witness to it the last few years. One particular area of criticism that’s often pointed out is the Mets farm system, or lack there-of. The farm system is cultivated mostly by signing amateur free agents and the draft. The draft is basically like the tax code, the better off your team plays the lower the draft pick you receive. […]
Last night while appearing on WFAN, New York Mets Beat Writer Adam Rubin announced that he will be departing the New York Daily News [Hat Tip: Tom Pich of MetsGuide]. He did not specify where he would be going other than that he would still be covering the Mets in some form. Today, Pich communicated with Rubin via email and was told that he will be joining ESPNNewYork.com, which will go online in about two […]
This is the time during Spring Training that all Major League teams start to cut down their rosters, sending some players down to their Minor League affiliates, while others are sent on their way right out of the organization. The funny thing about this process is that there are very few surprises as to who stays and who goes. Sometimes a young player with just a little minor league experience makes such an outstanding impression that […]
The New York Mets have seen darker days than this; the midnight massacre in which Tom Seaver was traded away comes to mind. Another bad time for the Mets and their fan base was in the early 90’s when the Mets had the worst team that money could buy followed by the failure of Generation K. 2002 was a horrible year as the Mets signed a bunch of over the hill players for a lot […]
Please don’t hold my pessimism against me. Usually I’m a “glass is half-full” kind of guy, but the 2010 Mets are essentially relying on the same starting rotation they had last year as it’s been painfully told and shown to us all winter long. Johan Santana, Mike Pelfrey, John Maine, Oliver Perez and perhaps either Nelson Figueroa or Jon Niese, are going to round out the staff. It’s a rotation with more health issues than […]
I have a sneaky suspicion that someone from the front office, maybe even Omar Minaya, took Jerry Manuel on the side and told him how it was regarding prospects Jenrry Mejia and Ike Davis. Yesterday, in the lesser of the two big miscommunication snafus, the other being Reyes, Minaya made a statement contradicting what Manuel had said two hours earlier regarding Mejia’s chances of starting the season in the Mets bullpen. It ain’t happening is […]
