Mets Trade Francoeur To The Texas Rangers

An article by posted on August 31, 2010 0 Comments

It’s Official, the Mets have traded rightfielder Jeff Francoeur to the Texas Rangers for infielder Joaquin Arias. Arias turns 26 in three weeks and has a career .286 batting average in 242 plate appearances. He plays second base so we may see him log some extended playing time. Good luck Frenchy. We wish you well, and have […]

Today is June 15th and the NY Mets are currently 1 1/2 games out of first place in the division.  Pre-season analysts regarded the 2010 Mets as a cellar team, questioning Omar Minaya’s lack of motivation during free agency and through the countless “On Paper” comparisons of this 2010 Mets team with the 2008 World […]

The 18-16 Mets currently find themselves in third place, two and a half games behind the first place Philadelphia Phillies. Back in March, while the Mets were getting ready to close out Port St. Lucie and head north for Opening Day, I felt that the Mets stood a good chance of going to the post season […]

An article by posted on January 28, 2010 0 Comments

I started writing this post about a week after the start of free agency. It ended up on the back burner as the Mets off season took on a life and a news cycle of its own. This morning, I came across an excellent blog post by Mike Silva of NYBD on this very subject which inspired me […]

Carlos Beltran Aftermath: Looking Ahead

An article by posted on January 17, 2010 0 Comments

Like the rest of you, I found the news of Carlos Beltran’s surgery earlier this week disturbing. I found the Mets reaction to be disgusting. So being both disturb and disgusted, I took a step back and tried to find something positive we could focus on. First, pitchers and catcher aren’t due to report to […]

It Was Vintage Pedro Out There Last Night

Many were surprised by the spectacular performance put on by one-time Met Pedro Martinez. I wasn’t. The 37-year old righthander looked more like the 27-year old version as he completely shut down a voracious Dodgers offense and held them to just two hits during seven shutout innings of pure vintage Pedro. Martinez didn’t walk any batters as he […]

The Twins Are Everything I Wanted The Mets To Be

An article by posted on October 7, 2009 0 Comments

I had no intentions of watching the one game playoff between the Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers last night. Somehow, almost as if it was fate, I came upon the game while channel surfing and paused only because I heard Ron Darlings voice. “Wow’, I thought to myself, “at least one 2009 Met made it […]

It’s safe to say that one of the greatest sports movies of all time is 1984’s ‘The Natural.’ Although the ending may be a bit over the top, it truly succeeds as a story of personal triumph over failure. But imagine for a moment if the story was different. Imagine the movie starting out with […]

Madoff Stole $700 Million From Wilpon!

An article by posted on July 14, 2009 0 Comments

Mets beat writer Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reported a little while ago in his blog that Bernie Madoff stole $700 million from the Wilpons.  That is a lot higher than the originally reported $300 million that the Wilpon’s allegedly lost.  Since the scandal broke late last year the Wilpons have not publicly […]
