An article by posted on June 21, 2010 0 Comments

All season long so many of us have dissected in every which way possible, every move the New York Mets have made. Granted some of us have used hacksaws and some of us have used the precision of a neurosurgeon, to make our points. I’ve occasionally waded in both pools, admittedly. The way the Mets […]

Did any of us think this would be possible some six weeks back? We’ve won eight straight, 12 of 13, and we just shut out our favorite team to hate in the Bronx! What a game! What performances!

The only good thing about the Mets bullpen is that it has not been needed over the last two weeks.  The starting pitching and the offense have been strong enough to carry the team.  But here’s my advice to Omar Minaya:  Do something quickly about the Mets pathetic bullpen.  Otherwise it could very well turn […]

So many times this season, the Mets have been in fitful starts and stops. The streakiness of this team would make a nudist blush.

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 […]
