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 […]

Mets Need To Do The Wright Thing

An article by posted on October 8, 2010 0 Comments

The Cardinals didn’t make the post-season this year but I don’t expect them to be trading Pujols. The Rockies didn’t make it either but somehow I don’t see them shopping Troy Tulowitzki. The Padres just missed but I am pretty confident they’ll hang on to Adrian Gonzalez. So, why oh why, would the Mets be […]

Will Mets Explore Trading Reyes?

An article by posted on October 7, 2010 0 Comments

Whomever the Mets hire as general manager I will be curious to see his take on Jose Reyes. Will he believe the team should be built around Reyes, or would the Mets be better served to deal him as an attempt to plug several holes, notably in the rotation and bullpen? The path of least […]

In a candid interview with former Mets pitcher and current broadcaster Ron Darling, Stuart Miller of the NY Times asked him a couple of questions on the state of the Mets. Q. What happened to the Mets this year? In June they were 11 games up [over .500] and they were so good to watch. […]

A Victim of His Own Success

An article by posted on October 5, 2010 0 Comments

Admission is the first step to beating addiction, particularly when you’ve been living in denial for so long.  To that I have a big declaration to make here, and I wanted to share it with fellow Mets fans. I have come to the conclusion that 2006 was an accident. Hi Mets fans, my name is […]

And The Award For The 2010 Mets Whipping Boy Goes To…

An article by posted on October 4, 2010 0 Comments

He’s a terrible manager. He burns out the bullpen. He hooks the starters too quickly. The players don’t respond to him. There’s dissension in the clubhouse. He’s lost control of the team. He needs to go. Once we get rid of him things will improve. No, I’m not talking about Jerry Manuel. I heard these […]

What will happen with Takahashi?

An article by posted on October 2, 2010 0 Comments

Personally, I’d like him back in the same role next season, but I have to wonder. Takahashi is a free agent this winter and wants to be a starter, and those starts against the Yankees and Phillies only reinforce that thought in his mind. His numbers are superior coming out of the bullpen than as […]

In This Town, Winning Is Everything

An article by posted on September 28, 2010 0 Comments

In a post to CBS New York by Jason Keidel, David Wright is portrayed as solid player who never asked to be the team’s leader, and is frequently chastised by fans for not being one. He writes, What has Wright done so wrong? He doesn’t sign a $36 million contract and then loaf his way to the back of […]

Playing Hard Versus Hardly Playing

Playing Hard Versus Hardly Playing

Wins and losses mean very little these days for the Mets since being mathematically eliminated last week. That said, I was stunned by how the team responded after Chase Utley’s dirty take-out slide of Ruben Tejada last night. What ever happened to pride and respect? Once again, the Mets shrunk in the face of adversity […]

Mazzilli Doesn’t Sound So Amazin’ To Me

An article by posted on September 18, 2010 0 Comments

Veteran writer Bill Madden of the Daily News, thinks the Mets should hire Lee Mazzilli. He says that Bobby V will cost the Mets too much money and that the Mets front office is hesitant to move Wally Backman from A-Ball to the major leagues in one fell swoop. While I do agree with Madden on Wally and Bobby, I must […]
