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 […]

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

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 […]

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. […]

Omar Satisfied With His One Hollow Victory

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 […]

On Sunday, 20-year old Aroldis Chapman, who signed a six-year, $30.25-million contract with the Cincinnati Reds, made his first start for Class-AAA Louisville Bats. It was an electrifying debut for one who is sure to become baseball’s next big thing. Chapman’s fastball hit 101 mph on the radar gun and stayed in the high 90s throughout the […]

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 […]

Mets Unprepared After Months Of Preparation

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 […]

Look Who’s Talking Now

Jon Heyman of SI.com had the following to say in a post to his Daily Scoop. The Mets’ minor-league system looks a lot better now than most realized last year, when so-called experts rated it near the bottom. Those ratings will need to be re-evaluated now that five young Mets looked very good or better […]

Glad Omar Is Unwilling To Rush Prospects To Save Job

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 […]
