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 […]

As we await the inevitable firing of Mets manager Jerry Manuel, there’s no shortage of names in the Mets blogosphere for potential candidates.

When it comes to being a barnstorming radical – a demonstrating firebrand – who wants to chant something to the tune of “Hell no we wont go!” or “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Omar Minaya has got to go!”, I’m not exactly what you would call your typical Ceasar Chavez. No, in fact I’m not even […]
