Are Mets Prospects Being Rushed To The Majors?

An article by posted on February 24, 2011 0 Comments

On Tuesday, our own Ed Leyro posted a great piece which illustrated quite clearly how woefully deficient the Mets have been in producing an 18 game winner. In fact, they are on the verge attaining yet another dubious record; the longest drought in MLB history. Since 1990, no Met pitcher has reached the 18-win mark in a single […]

Build A Bench Workshop: It Takes A Milledge?

Remember our first teenage hitting machine? No, not F-Mart, the one before him, Lastings Milledge. According to MLB Trade Rumors, Milledge is currently  the youngest free agent on the market. Of course that alone would not be a good enough reason for putting Milledge back in a Mets uniform, but there are some compelling reasons to […]

It would have been nice to end the season with one more win today, but I think we all saw the writing on the wall the second we saw Oliver Perez emerge from the bullpen gate. Still, I am very proud of the many accomplishments that so many of our players made this season, especially […]

I guess this whole break up the core thing is picking up some steam lately, and I still don’t know why… Maybe I am just a thick-headed Sicilian, because no matter how hard people try to convince me, I still can’t for the life of me understand how trading your best players can be construed as improving […]

Mets Wave White Flag With Non-Moves

An article by posted on August 1, 2010 0 Comments

The Apologists and those looking for the silver lining in the clouds a day after the non-waiver trading deadline have all had there say. I’ve seen Matt Cerrone over on Metsblog say the Mets did the right thing. I’ve seen a few writers here comment and suggest that no one move would have put us […]

I came across an interesting article on MetsBlog, well a Tweet really, but basically it read: MLB note: in the last 366 days, the Phils have traded away 8 of their top 10 prospects from 2009, and 4 of their top 6 prospects from 2010. It was originally tweeted by chrisguzy I wound up having […]

The Philadelphia Phillies have called up Domonic Brown, one of the best prospects in the minors, to replace Shane Victorino who was placed on the DL today. Brown is one of the premier prospects in all of baseball and was recently ranked #15 by Baseball America and #12 by MLB. To put that in perspective, […]

I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore…

I feel so weird this morning. You know that feeling you get when you just know something bad is going to happen, but you don’t know what it is? That’s how I feel about the Mets right now, and it’s something I can’t shake. I had a lot of hope for this season, and I’ve […]

Sounds Like Heads are Gonna Roll

An article by posted on July 25, 2010 0 Comments

In a post to his blog on ESPN New York, Adam Rubin wrote that even though Omar Minaya declared manager Jerry Manuel’s job safe at the start of the Dodger series, he would offer no such assurances for hitting coach Howard Johnson and the rest of Manuel’s staff on Sunday. Asked specifically if the entire staff would be in […]
