“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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

John Maine made his return to the Mets after a three month absence from the team following the world’s longest rehab stint.  Although he was limited to a pitch count of 60 pitches, he took the loss when the bullpen failed to keep the Phillies in the park.  The efforts (or lack thereof) of Tobi […]

Blogger’s disclaimer:  This recap will be full of sarcasm.  I attended today’s game expecting to see a spirited effort by the Mets against their former teammate, Pedro Martinez.  Instead I saw things on the field I never thought I’d see in person, things that pretty much sum up the 2009 season.  Buckle up.  The show’s […]
