Mets Have Trade Bait

An article by posted on June 8, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]

Mets Need To Part Ways With Oliver Perez

An article by posted on June 1, 2010 0 Comments

The Oliver Perez experiment should be over!  Saturday’s putrid performance shows that this guy’s career with the Mets is over.  Pretty soon Perez will be lucky to throw batting practice for a single A team. I understand Perez is still owed more than 20 million dollars but he’s doing nothing at all for this team. […]

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 […]

Mets Beat Yankees But That’s Hardly Enough

An article by posted on May 24, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]

Omar Minaya Should Have Taken His Own Advice

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

As Jim Nabors in “Gomer Pile” used to say:  “Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.”  He could have been pontificating cryptically on the present wafer thin condition of the Mets’ starting rotation.  A concern expressed by many since there was snow on the ground, and ignored by Omar Minaya, but coming to fruition as June bugs and Vultures are circling.

Road Woes, Last Place Mets and My Take on Greatest Announcers

An article by posted on May 19, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]

Mets Need To Fire Coaches Too!

An article by posted on May 18, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]

Omar Flying To Atlanta: Is It Hammer Time For Jerry Manuel?

An article by posted on May 16, 2010 0 Comments

According to a tweet via David Lennon of Newsday, Omar Minaya will be making an unscheduled flight with the team to Atlanta for their series with the Braves, although the decision was not made during today’s game. I may be reading too much into this, but Jerry Manuel has been on the proverbial hot seat of […]

What Can The Mets Do With Ollie?

An article by posted on May 11, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]

Leave it to the Phillies

An article by posted on May 5, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]
