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 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 […]

Just when things were seemingly going great for the Mets, especially after taking the first game in the just completed Phillies series, they hit a brick wall.

Santana and Reyes: Now It’s Time To Be Concerned

An article by posted on May 2, 2010 0 Comments

Although I often cringe at the MMO posts that are almost an hour-by-hour barometer of the current state of the Mets (lose a few in a row, we’re terrible/win a few in a row, we’re pennant contenders), I couldn’t resist starting to write this as Johan Santana dejectedly trudged off the mound after the lambasting […]

Phillies Get Even As Halladay Ends Mets Streak With 10-0 Shutout

An article by posted on May 1, 2010 0 Comments

You can’t win them all, and so the Mets streak ends at eight after an ill-fated fourth inning that saw the Phillies open the flood gates on the heels of two dropped pop-ups by Jose Reyes and Alex Cora. It went all down hill for the Mets and Mike Pelfrey after that as those cheesy bums anihilated the […]

You Are What Your Record Says You Are!

Ahh… Is there anything more satisfying than waking up the morning after a satisfying victory over a division rival, especially a 9-1 pounding like we gave the Phillies last night… So many things are just working so well for the Mets right now. When will all of this good fortune come to an end? I […]
