My All Time New York Mets Lineup

An article by posted on April 5, 2010 0 Comments

With Opening Day finally come (nice win!) and gone, I think it’s high time we put away our collective pessimism, our unified grumpiness as jilted Mets fans, and just have a little fun. Opening Day happens only once a year, right? But as we pop open those adult beverages and boil the mystery meat wonders of pure […]

It’s Not As Bad As Some Would Have You Believe

An article by posted on April 5, 2010 0 Comments

Loyal, stupid and in denial are the three words that most accurately describes me when talking about the 2010 Mets. Firstly, I’ve been a Met fan for over 35 years. In that time I’ve been treated to one World Championship. If that’s not loyalty, I don’t know what is. Even as we watched the stars […]

Take Me To Your Leader (If You Can Find Him)

The Mets have had a number of fiery players over the years.  With their performances on the field and behind the scenes in the clubhouse, these players have carried the Mets beyond the team’s expectations. From Tug McGraw’s “Ya Gotta Believe” that gave hope and fired up the 1973 Mets on their way to the […]

Will A Full Season of Jose Reyes Lead To A Better Mike Pelfrey?

An article by posted on March 30, 2010 0 Comments

Yes, it should. We all know that Mike Pelfrey was a big disappointment during the 2009 season. After seeing Pelfrey really turn things around midway through the 2008 season, I really expected him to take it to the next level, but Pelfrey did not and seemingly regressed. Pelfrey’s final line of 10 wins and 5.03 […]

And Leading Off For The Mets…?

We have just one more week of Spring Training left and the good news out of Mets camp is that Jose Reyes may soon appear in a minor league game perhaps as soon as today. Also, Omar Minaya said this weekend that we should not rule Jose Reyes out for Opening Day. As soon as Reyes […]

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 […]

The Dog Days Of Spring Training

An article by posted on March 25, 2010 0 Comments

Call these the “Dog Days,” of Spring Training. With the regular season opener less than two weeks away it still resembles more mirage than oasis. Waiting for that ketchup, er, season to flow, grows with anticipation as another meaningless Grapefruit League tilt thankfully is capped. The storylines have been played out and one can only bang the […]

Great news to report Mets fans… The Mets announced on Tuesday morning that their starting shortstop’s thyroid readings have normalized and that he has been cleared to engage in baseball activities.

Do I Believe In Comebacks? It’s Getting Harder…

An article by posted on March 23, 2010 0 Comments

We now return you to ‘As The World Turns‘… That should be what each return from a commercial on SNY and WPIX says this exhibition season… I am becoming more concerned as the Mets continue to have more questions than answers each day spring training continues. What drama… We should be getting closer to making cuts. Instead the […]

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

An article by posted on March 21, 2010 0 Comments

As my excitement for the new season grows stronger with each passing day, there are still several questions and question marks that occupy my mind. That is to be expected with the season we had to suffer through last year. But 2010 brings new possibilities, though injuries have already begun scaring the fan base. Beltran is […]
