During the infancy of the 2009 free agency campaign, Mets General Omar Minaya has fired off salvo’s to the rest of the National League East about as damaging as a mouse passing wind. The hysteria you are hearing is coming from the rival GM’s in Philly, Miami, Atlanta, and be careful, Washington too. Minaya has his priorities twisted. You fill in the blanks after you land the Great White, not aspire to bag a school […]
Last week Topps released its All-Star Rookie team for 2009 and while there were some justified selections and some questionable ones, the player that has the most intrigue for me is the Mets’ Omir Santos. He beat out phenom Matt Wieters, who most thought would be in contention to take home the Rookie of the Year award in the American League. Did Santos’ season really justify the award? First let’s take a look at his […]
It looks like the Mets didn’t get completely shutout as far as awards go for the 2009 season. After missing out on any off season hardware including any Gold Glove or Silver Slugger awards, the Mets manged to pull one out of the hat when catcher Omir Santos was named to the Topps All Star Rookie Team. Omir Santos hit .260 in 96 games for the Mets last season with 7 homers and 40 RBIs, beating […]
As we’ve done for the last two off seasons, we’ll try to get to your mailbag questions and comments at least once a week. Unfortunately, Christian has moved on, so until someone new decides they want to respond to site mail, you’ll have to contend with me. I may not get as analytical as my predecessor did, but I’ll try to answer your questions as best as I can. All I keep hearing about the Mets going after a […]
I know we still have almost a month to go before the 2009 regular baseball season is over but lets face facts the Mets season ended in July. It’s time for the Mets and us the fans to look to 2010. This past week Josh Thole joined the Mets for their series in Colorado. Thole had his first major league game last Thursday going 2-for-5 on the day and stole 2nd base. He had a […]
Ask just about any Mets fan nowadays about who will be behind the plate in 2010, most will have no idea. And, I can’t really blame them, the Mets have not made getting a quality catcher a priority in the past few seasons, unless you call Brian Schneider and his .189/.272/.318 line quality. If you ask anyone connected to the Mets they’ll most likely say Josh Thole and Omir Santos, a tandem I dubbed Tholmir. […]
As I’ve been watching our beloved Mets this season, going through cases of Pepto-Bismol and Alka-Seltzer, I’ve still kept an interest in seeing the team win, no matter how many games out of first we’ve been. Recently, it’s gotten much tougher to get genuinely excited over wins, though having them spaced so far apart does help increase the excitement when we get one. But, for the first time in a few years, I have a […]
Jonathon Niese was called up from Triple-A Buffalo to replace the injured Fernando Nieve in the starting rotation. If he continues to pitch like he did tonight, he might not have to go back anytime soon. After a rough first inning, Niese settled down and pitched beautifully for six additional innings. The offense came alive and the long ball returned to the Mets as they defeated the Astros 10-3 at Minute Maid Park. After three […]
Mets First Half MVP Griffin – Gary Sheffield, most homers and has been a huge part of team Russell Z – Johan Santana Satish – David Wright – I was reluctant to choose Wright because it seemed as if he didn’t do much this year, but he does deserve some credit for his new-found ability as a leadoff hitter. (His OBP is .410 and he has 20 steals!) Greg P – Gary Sheffield - Who would […]
