No Sour Grapes For Johan Santana

An article by posted on November 11, 2008

When the Mets went after Johan Santana last off season, some Mets fans were stoked, while others thought we either gave up too much to get him, or that we paid him too much to keep him. Fast forward 12 months later… I think it’s safe to say that there’s not one Mets fan who […]

Dan Murphy Is Sizzling Hot In Arizona

An article by posted on November 5, 2008

Somebody slow this guy down! Dan Murphy continues to rake in the Arizona Fall League as evidenced by another big game last night. MLB.com reports that Murphy homered and hit a walk-off double to lead Peoria over Mesa, 13-12, on Tuesday to push the Saguaros past the the Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League […]

Trading Wright is the Wrong Move

An article by posted on October 4, 2008

Earlier this week, Mike Francesa suggested trading David Wright because he is nowhere to be found in pressure games. This idea to me is laughable, mainly because 25-year-old Gold Glove 3rd baseman who average 29 homers and 114 RBI and hit over .300 in their first four seasons grow on trees. Don’t we wish? So […]

Opening Day…Well, They’re Not Exactly Jitters

An article by posted on March 28, 2008

The Mets have not decided on a fifth starter this far into Spring Training. They’re saying Jorge Sosa may get the job, with both Brian Stokes and Joe Smith able to prove themselves worthy of the bullpen. Both Mike Pelfrey and El Duque aren’t ready to start, but I think Pelfrey will be ready before […]

Hard to believe but Spring Training is almost through and the season is slowly creeping up on us… I can’t wait! I feel like I used to as a child on Christmas Eve, when anticipation and anxiety were at their peaks. I think we can expect good things from the Mets performance this year, unlike […]

The REAL Beautiful Game

An article by posted on February 14, 2008

Finally, amid all of the turmoil with steroids, HGH, the Mitchell report and everything else, baseball is being played. I realize that it’s only spring training and full squad workouts do not begin for a few more days, but it’s still baseball. When I read yesterday that Johan Santana had already reported to Mets camp […]

Mets in Control Thanks to Johan

An article by posted on February 8, 2008

David Wright recently said that he believes the Phillies are still the team to beat <cue Jimmy Rollins>. "Philadelphia took care of us last year," he said, "They took care of business in the division. Going into this year, we have to take control again in the NL East." While I love David, I’m going to […]

Holy Wrecking Ball, Batman, This Guy Has Nasty Stuff!

An article by posted on January 25, 2008

Well, happy almost end of the week to everybody! Once again, an uneventful week in the world of major league baseball.  I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m getting pretty sick of hearing about who the front runner for Johan Santana is.   I think SI.com has an article at least 3 times a week about […]

I Can’t Wait To Bite Into A $6 Dollar Hot Dog Again

An article by posted on January 18, 2008

Happy Friday everybody! I hope everyone has had a productive and exciting week! Forgive my excitement folks, being a month away from pitchers and catchers reporting makes me do it.  I’m almost as jumpy as Robin Williams after 12 lattes, thinking about it. The fresh air, green grass, sound of bats cracking and leather popping, […]

Mets manager Willie Randolph announced yesterday that injured reliever Duaner Sanchez had been sent home for the day for repeated lateness. "He had been a little tardy for a couple of days," Randolph said. "We have a rule of being on time, so I sent him home to where he lives ." Randolph said he […]
