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 […]

An article by posted on September 13, 2010 0 Comments

In a year rife with moral victories and the subsequent heartbreak that comes along with it, R.A. Dickey has been one of the more pleasant surprises with the 2010 Mets.  I’m sure most Mets fans weren’t expecting much from a 35 year-old quasi-journeyman knuckleballer (I certainly wasn’t), we can now break bread that R.A. Dickey […]

Would You Let Your Child Root For This Team?

Lets be honest. We all could have been Yankee fans. We could be wearing Derek Jeter jerseys, praying every night to our God Mickey Mantle and ending all debates with the robotic illogical response, “27 Championships.” But we’re not. We’re Mets fans. And like a marriage, we’re in this for better or worse. Lately, however, […]

In Defense Of The Wilpons: Are The Mets Heading To The Junkyard?

Think back to that first car you owned. Wont it always have a special place in your heart? Remember all the great memories and the feeling of freedom that came with it. Cruising around with your friends, stereo blasting. Driving a bit too fast, too reckless. Finding that one special dimly lit place to make […]

Lets See What Jenrry Mejia Can Do

An article by posted on September 2, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets announced yesterday that Jenrry Mejia will start Saturday’s game at Chicago. Not a surprise. I hope the Mets give Mejia a lot of rope to see what he is capable of doing. Remember he spent a lot of the season in the bullpen, so his innings aren’t what they could be had he […]
