Mets Need Early Deadline Help For Pennant Chase…

An article by posted on June 14, 2010 0 Comments

So many times this season, the Mets have been in fitful starts and stops. The streakiness of this team would make a nudist blush. The many ‘in house’ adjustments to their roster has resulted in positive reviews from around the blogosphere and the print media, and had positive effects on the team and it’s production. The […]

Mets Should Act On Oswalt

An article by posted on June 14, 2010 0 Comments

Just because Roy Oswalt told a friend he would accept a trade to the Mets doesn’t mean he’s in Manhattan on the off-day looking at apartments. Depending on what “friend” you talk to, Oswalt would also accept trades to Philadelphia, St. Louis, the Yankees and Washington Nationals. However, if it means getting out of Houston, […]

Why The Mets Are The Hottest Team In NL

An article by posted on June 13, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets are picking up steam and most importantly, they are doing it on the road. Although they remained in second place, 1.5 games behind the Atlanta Braves after last nights win, they have won eight out of their last ten games and are currently the hottest team in the National League. Ironically, both losses […]

Mets – Please Draft Grandal

An article by posted on June 5, 2010 0 Comments

I am no expert on College Baseball, High School Baseball or for the most part, minor league baseball. One thing that is apparent is as much as Mets fans would love for the heir apparent to be in our farm system at catcher – he, mainly Josh Thole is not that guy. Josh Thole’s nearest […]

My guess is that if you find yourself in the market for a motivational speaker you probably will not give very serious consideration to hiring Charlie Manuel. On the other hand, I am kind of hoping he holds another closed-door meeting with his (by now) totally shell-shocked crew when the Mets next come into the […]

The Mets have activated reliever Ryota Igarashi from the disabled list and he will be in the bullpen when the Mets play their finale tonight against the Yankees. According to mets.com, rather than send highly regarded prospect Jenrry Mejia back to the Minor Leagues to stretch out as a starter, the Mets opted to keep […]

Mets Takahashi Pitching Well..Oswalt Asks Out

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

As the game moves along, I’m loving the pitching of a ‘professional’ pitcher like Hisanori Takahashi. In Fenway, Bay would have hit that ball out… I was on my laptop when AP sports alert came across that had a story from AP Sports reporter Kristie Rieken about Roy Oswalt and his agent officially requesting a trade from […]

Omar Minaya Should Have Taken His Own Advice

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

As Jim Nabors in “Gomer Pile” used to say:  “Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.”  He could have been pontificating cryptically on the present wafer thin condition of the Mets’ starting rotation.  A concern expressed by many since there was snow on the ground, and ignored by Omar Minaya, but coming to fruition as June bugs and Vultures are circling.

John Maine Episode Is Just Another Amazin’ Mess

An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets ended a lousy 2-6 road trip with a 10-7 win over the Nationals yesterday. That’s the good news, but leave it to the Mets to upstage a solid pitching effort by a Raul Valdes and a ten run offensive outburst by conjuring up yet another public relations nightmare. After the drama that unfolded when Jerry […]

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 6)

An article by posted on May 18, 2010 0 Comments

I openly admit that I have not come to terms with the fact that we actually dealt with a four game sweep in Florida, because in my recent memory, that has never happened before. The Mets were usually able to scratch out a game or something, but we really messed it up this weekend. It’s […]
