In a late night stunner, Cliff Lee agreed to sign with the Philadelphia Phillies, as first reported by MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan. Early last night, there were reports that the Yankees had fears that Lee wasn’t landing in The Bronx and that proved correct. Before midnight they were told by Lee’s agent, Darek Braunecker, that Lee […]

We interrupt your regularly scheduled day of blog reading to give you breaking news that’s already been broken. Omar Minaya has been relieved of his GM duties and Jerry Manuel’s option for the 2011 season was not picked up. Of course, this wasn’t even breaking news before it became official.  It was a foregone conclusion […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
