As we are approaching the end of the second month of the second season in the newly constructed Citi Field, it appears as if the Mets have finally figured out their new gem and how to use it to their advantage.  Initially the new ballpark drew concerns from about every Mets fan in the United […]

It Will Take 5 Years Until We Are Competitive

An article by posted on May 22, 2010 0 Comments

How would we feel if we were told this by the Mets front office? It’s become very evident over the last several seasons our loyalty has been tested. This team and management has displayed a total lack of direction and focus. We fans have sat on the sidelines and continually pointed fingers and placed blame […]

Road Woes, Last Place Mets and My Take on Greatest Announcers

An article by posted on May 19, 2010 0 Comments

Forgive the random thoughts here, folks, but I thought it was easier today to touch on a few things rather than elaborate on one thing. The Mets continued their road woes last night with a 3-2 loss to the Braves, and are now 5-13 away from home, and 14-8 at Citi Field.  Last year, they […]

Where Is Nelson Figueroa When You Need Him

An article by posted on May 17, 2010 0 Comments

We could use Nelson Figueroa.  After Johan Santana and Mike Pelfrey, he would be our next best starting pitcher. I was never sold on John Maine after seeing him in spring training.  He’s recently had a few positive starts, though those were against weak hitting NL teams and at the friendly confines of Citifield when […]

I wanted to post something before the game and I had a choice to either write something about the trash at Citi Field or some non Mets news that smelled very Phishy. What a choice, huh? I decided to go with the latter, but before I do, I wanted to thank our friends at the uber-cool Real Dirty Mets […]

Beasts of the East

The Mets created a lot of goodwill with their loyal fans after a 9-1 homestand late in April.  It certainly seemed as though some things were working: Ike Davis was called up and created an impression on the team and the fanbase, Jose Reyes moved his spot in the lineup and it seemed to work […]

Rod Barajas Seizing The Moment

An article by posted on May 6, 2010 0 Comments

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.    When Omar Minaya’s failed dalliance with Bengie Molina culminated in the late February signing of veteran backstop Rod Barajas, he hit on Black Jack, Number 21.   Barajas has not only provided long-distance service, from a previously power starved position, he should also be credited (and Henry Blanco) with gaining […]

Leave it to the Phillies

An article by posted on May 5, 2010 0 Comments

Leave it to the Phillies to temper our expectations.  Admittedly, I’m an avid fan of the Mets and Giants, so my hatred of the Phillies and Eagles and Philadelphia fans in general is bordering on unhealthy.  But one thing is for sure….the Phillies are damn good, and they kind of woke up the Mets and […]
