An article by posted on October 3, 2010 0 Comments

Well, Mets fans, we did it. We endured another long season of Mets baseball, only to see our boys play to an 79-83 record (fourth in the NL East) and miss the playoffs for the fourth straight year. Though we will now turn our attention to football, hockey, or basketball, let’s take a look at […]

Mets Must Play Better In September

An article by posted on September 27, 2010 0 Comments

Going back to the 2007 season, the Philadelphia Phillies have always been able to really get it together and turn it on as a team in the month of September. Yes, the Mets choked both in ’07 and ’08, but if not for late surges in September by the Phillies, they could have made the post […]

Playing Hard Versus Hardly Playing

Wins and losses mean very little these days for the Mets since being mathematically eliminated last week. That said, I was stunned by how the team responded after Chase Utley’s dirty take-out slide of Ruben Tejada last night. What ever happened to pride and respect? Once again, the Mets shrunk in the face of adversity […]

David Wright was a guest on WFAN this morning, and Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog.com captured this quote from Wright, “I think there needs to be changes.  There needs to be a new look, some new life.  If that involves the coaching staff, that’s up to Mr. Wilpon and the Front Office. I think the players […]

So Close… Dickey Rises To The Occasion!

R.A Dickey bounced back from a bad start better than anyone could have imagined. Dickey went all the way on a complete game one-hit shutout. Its was the fifth time this season that the Mets have shut out the Phillies. The only season it happened more was in 1969 (7 times), when the Mets won the World […]

Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

An article by posted on August 7, 2010 0 Comments

The “new” look Mets take on the Phillies tonight after dropping the opener last night. This could be a potentially very important game (side note: I’m getting tired of writing “very important game”) as the Mets need their ace to step up today. Johan is 8-6 on the season with a 3.20 ERA. He wasn’t […]

The Omar Minaya Way or The Ruben Amaro Jr. Way?

I came across an interesting article on MetsBlog, well a Tweet really, but basically it read: MLB note: in the last 366 days, the Phils have traded away 8 of their top 10 prospects from 2009, and 4 of their top 6 prospects from 2010. It was originally tweeted by chrisguzy I wound up having […]

Done Deal! Jayson Stark of ESPN.com is reporting that Houston Astros ace Roy Oswalt has agreed to a deal that will send him to the Philadelphia Phillies for J.A. Happ and two minor leaguers, Jonathon Villar and Anthony Gose. In other words, the Phillies keep their top two hitting and top two pitching prospects. That would be […]

The Philadelphia Phillies have called up Domonic Brown, one of the best prospects in the minors, to replace Shane Victorino who was placed on the DL today. Brown is one of the premier prospects in all of baseball and was recently ranked #15 by Baseball America and #12 by MLB. To put that in perspective, […]

No Panic

An article by posted on July 21, 2010 0 Comments

I had thought before the all-star break that the Mets had a realistic shot at taking over first place in the division with a 3-game deficit against the first-place Braves.  Of course, that didn’t turn out as planned and we limped into the break 4 games back.  Now, with the Mets 1-5 on their western […]
