The Mets selected Pedro Beato with their second pick in the Rule 5 Draft. He projects as a middle reliever and might be able to have an immediate impact on the major league roster. Beato was actually drafted by the Mets in the 17th round in 2005 but did not sign. The following year, the […]

What some Mets fans are going to have to start realizing is the simple fact that there is more to running a baseball organization than just offering up boat loads of money to free agents over 30 years old. That’s where we as a fan base are stuck. We see the Yankees do it, and […]

We’ve all heard the reports that say the Mets only have $5 million to spend this offseason. I don;t know who said it or their source, but it does make sense since the team has over $130 million committed to its current club. Regardless of the actual figure, there’s no doubt that the Mets are […]

Omar Minaya – The Company Man?

An article by posted on October 11, 2010 0 Comments

I’ve tried my very best to call upon the better angels to guide my thoughts on the recent firings of Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel.  What seems to be becoming the yearly sideshow where the Wilpons are apologizing in some fashion for the Mets abject failures, I can finally say it’s taken its toll. Normally I’m a […]

There’s some good news and there’s some bad news about Oliver Perez.  The bad news is he’s under contract for the 2011 season.  The good news is that 2011 is the last year of Ollie’s contract.  2010 is done for the not so amazin’ Mets.  Hopefully 2011 will be better for the Mets.  The Mets […]

Something Is Rotten In Queens

All year long we’ve been told that the Mets are financially in good health. It’s been the mantra ever since the name Bernard Madoff made headline news with his Ponzi scheme and swept the Wilpon family and Sterling Enterprises on board his swarmy carpet ride; not to mention all the livelihoods he destroyed along the […]

Oliver Perez Should Play This Season For The Mets!

An article by posted on August 24, 2010 0 Comments

No,  I haven’t lost my mind. I don’t think Oliver Perez is a good player at all.  Ollie is not a team player, he plays for the name on the back of the jersey.  Perez has shown that he has no inclination to work on improving his game and giving something back to the team […]
