An article by posted on May 19, 2010 0 Comments

His time in Japan was a precursor to this. Behind his diminutive stature and deceptive motion, was hidden a true ‘Warrior‘, the kind romanticized by western film and looked upon with reverence in Japan. Behind this hard throwing Japanese league veteran burned a fire to compete with the best… So Ryota Igarashi came to America…and […]

Jason Bay is a guess hitter because he has been streaky his entire career.  So far, his short tenure with the Mets has been one wrong answer after another.   Take the seventh inning of Sunday’s fifth straight Mets loss – Please.  With the annoying Marlins about to break out a four-pack of brooms, the Mets […]

In another time, perhaps 50 years from now, the Mets will get the opportunity to tear down Citifield, and build a new stadium for their fans and team. The life cycle of Citifield will have reached it’s end. The Stadium will have hosted multiple championship teams and hosted All Star, playoff, and World Series games. […]

An article by posted on May 5, 2010 0 Comments

My hunch is that few to no Mets fans now miss Brian Schneider, last year’s non-entity of a backstop. Yeah, and the non-entity the year before that. After Fernando Nieve blew Maine’s 4-2 lead in the eighth inning (Mainey threw six above average innings in one of his best performances thus far) in Cincy by […]

Last night’s one nothing victory over Atlanta cemented a terrific start to the 2010 campaign for Mets hurler, Mike Pelfrey (4-0); possibly of his career with now 24 consecutive scoreless innings. As the great Joe Morgan pointed out himself during the game, Pelfrey showed strong signs of growth, maturity, poise and skill, throwing five shutout […]

Last week we quoted an article from Alden Gonzalez  who first reported that Mets left-handed reliever Pedro Feliciano wanted to be considered for the eighth-inning setup role. “I just want to be the setup man,” Feliciano said prior to his club’s game against the Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium, which resulted in a 2-1 loss.

So here we are Met Nation awaiting another season to begin and hoping that our team comes together to replace the pain and hurt of the three previous seasons.

New Graphics: We Don’t Go Anywhere Without These Guys

I think that we can all agree that the key to the Mets success this season is our starting pitchers; Oliver Perez, John Maine and Mike Pelfrey. And while I do recognize the importance of those three, the bottom line is that we don’t go anywhere unless our core players deliver. Johan Santana must dazzle us with a Cy […]

One thing the Mets have plenty of on this years squad is players who are itching to rebound from a 2009 season they all would like to forget. Everyone in the starting rotation will all have something to prove including Johan Santana who had surgery to remove bone spurs, John Maine who battled shoulder problems, and […]
