Before I begin this week’s post I apologize for my post last week on Omar Minaya and Roy Halladay. When writing my post last week I had no intention to hurt anyone or insult anyone’s nationality. I promise in the future to be more careful with my posts. This is not a post bashing Johan Santana. I know early on in the 2010 season I wrote that Santana was done and I admit I was wrong. […]
About 2 weeks ago principal owner Fred Wilpon was asked about Omar Minaya’s job status after the 2010 season. Clueless Fred responded by saying: “Is the sun coming up tomorrow?” I cannot understand where this vote of confidence is coming from. Omar Minaya has been the General Manager since the end of the 2004 season. In that time Omar has built a team that went to the playoffs ONCE! As we all know in 2007 […]
Former Mets pitcher Pedro Martinez was in New York yesterday for a promotion and sat down with Max Dickstein of amNewYork for a short Q & A session. It was your typical interview until Pedro was asked for his opinion on the Mets and the Yankees. He answered the Yankee part of the question in one sentence, but had quite a few things to say about the Mets. It started out so innocently… […]
In a post to his blog, Mike Puma of the NY Post writes that Mets fans shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for the team to trade for Houston Astros ace, Roy Oswalt. Roy Oswalt’s name is out there as a potential reinforcement for a team in need of pitching help, but don’t expect the Mets to inquire. Oswalt, the Astros right-hander, recently said he’s willing to waive his no-trade clause if Houston wants to deal him. […]
According to ESPN’s Jayson Stark, the Mets have considered making an attempt to bring Pedro Martinez back to Flushing. Martinez is said to be looking for a deal similar to the deal Brad Penny got from from the Cardinals, a one year 7.5 million dollar deal. Pedro has said his first choice before signing with the Phillies last year, was to sign with the Mets. So we know Pedro would be open to a return. […]
The burning question for Mets fans is who to root for in this year’s World Series, the Yankees or the Phillies? Both are hated, both are outstanding teams replete with thumpers that make Mets fans queasy with envy. While many ruminate on which team to root for, let me simplify the equation, and flip over the question. Who will you root against? Let’s start with Pedro Martinez. After all, he cashed over $50 million of […]
“You know what? My phone is off. And I won’t (call Minaya) unless he calls my agent (Fernando Cuza) or he calls me. I have a lot of respect for Omar and the Mets, but I’m not going to go chasing the Mets. I’m not in that bad of shape. I’m okay and they know I am okay. Yeah, I would like to be back (with the Mets). But I’m not just gonna follow the […]
The World Series Ed Leyro wrote about yesterday is likely to come to fruition—Yankees/Phillies, unless the Dodgers and/or Angels sweep the remaining games. And the way New York and Philly are playing, that’s about as likely as snow in the Caribbean. So we’re going to have to face facts here. Yes, a Yankees/Phillies series is going to be like a Mets/Red Sox series would be to a Yankees fan—and we all know how that one […]
Many were surprised by the spectacular performance put on by one-time Met Pedro Martinez. I wasn’t. The 37-year old righthander looked more like the 27-year old version as he completely shut down a voracious Dodgers offense and held them to just two hits during seven shutout innings of pure vintage Pedro. Martinez didn’t walk any batters as he unveiled his masterpiece, but unfortunately for him (and fortunately for us) he handed over a certain win to a shaky Phillies bullpen […]
