Darren asks… How important is it for Terry Collins that this team gets off to a great start in April? Considering how most fans including me disagreed with the decision to (bringing) him back, you have to think that he’s on an incredibly short leash, right? Daniel replies… To be honest, I don’t think Terry […]
I came across this at a Phillies blog, See the fatty 3rd on the left, with the shitty facial hair? That’s shitty movie actor, decent TV show creator, and even shittier stand up (if you haven’t seen his stand up, it’s a lot like Dane Cook, only with trans fats) comic Kevin James. But there’s […]
Back in January, the Mets were looking to acquire a big name pitcher to pair up with Johan Santana at the top of the rotation. Before missing out on Derek Lowe and settling for Oliver Perez, the Mets decided to shore up the back end of the rotation by signing Tim Redding to a one […]
Here is the lineup for tonight’s rubber match: Luis Castillo – 2B Alex Cora – SS Carlos Beltran – CF Gary Sheffield – LF David Wright – 3B Fernando Tatis – 1B Fernando Martinez – RF Omir Santos – C Tim Redding – RHP By the way, Joe Janish of Mets Today said it first […]
Okay, I wasn’t at Citi Field last night, but I could feel the energy in the park all the way from New York to Nashville. It was a playoff game in June, and the Mets continued their dominance of Philly when they absolutely had to have a win against them.

Johan Santana was absolutely brilliant last night… no not on the mound, but at the plate. His RBI double in the sixth inning proved to be the difference maker as the Mets topped the Phillies 6-5. On the mound it was a totally different story as Santana served up four homers, but on this damp […]
After the Mets finish out the weekend series in DC on Sunday, their schedule until after the All Star break gets a heck of a lot tougher. Tuesday the Mets open a three game set at CitiField with the Phillies. Next weekend they head up to the Bronx. After the Bronx its three down in […]
Forgive me for being a backseat general manager, but after ever Raul Ibanez home run, do you cringe a little like me? When I perused the market of free-agent corner this winter his name jumped out because of his consistency and veteran leadership (all reports are he is well-liked and respected by his brethren). His […]
Now, as Jose Reyes is put on the DL and viruses and other nagging injuries are affecting more of the Mets, it feels like they are all jumping overboard while that big ship known as the Philadelphia Phillies has just blown right by, making the water choppy around those NYM lifeboats.
