Mets Aren’t The Only Team That Peaked In 2006

An article by posted on October 19, 2009 0 Comments

Three years ago today, Carlos Beltran got a good look at an Adam Wainwright curveball and the Cardinals went on to the 2006 World Series.  (I have spared my fellow Mets fans from having to see that picture by showing you a photo of Beltran hitting a home run against the Cardinals instead.)  After that […]

It Was Vintage Pedro Out There Last Night

An article by posted on October 17, 2009 0 Comments

Many were surprised by the spectacular performance put on by one-time Met Pedro Martinez. I wasn’t. The 37-year old righthander looked more like the 27-year old version as he completely shut down a voracious Dodgers offense and held them to just two hits during seven shutout innings of pure vintage Pedro. Martinez didn’t walk any batters as he […]

Paul McCartney has unveiled the tracklisting for his new live album and DVD, “Good Evening New York City”. Of course the concert was a reunion of sorts with the Mets and their ballpark. The first time Paul McCartney appeared at Shea Stadium he and the rest of his band introduced the rest of the country to the Beatles […]

Did Brad Lidge Sell His Soul?

Can The Phillies Repeat? Or Did Brad Lidge Sell His Soul To The Devil? Last year the Phillies hit on all cylinders, just at the right time – playoff time. The Mets were mostly responsible for the Phillies winning the division. But as the playoffs started, the Phillies clicked, easily taking the NLDS from the […]

The Twins Are Everything I Wanted The Mets To Be

An article by posted on October 7, 2009 0 Comments

I had no intentions of watching the one game playoff between the Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers last night. Somehow, almost as if it was fate, I came upon the game while channel surfing and paused only because I heard Ron Darlings voice. “Wow’, I thought to myself, “at least one 2009 Met made it […]

MMO Delivers The Eulogy For The 2009 Mets

An article by posted on October 6, 2009 0 Comments

The 2009 Mets lived an interesting life even though it ended sooner than we would have liked. They wanted to be your friend throughout the season; the kind of friend that stood by you when you needed one to make you stand up and cheer. Sometimes they succeeded (the last three games of the season) […]

Bengie Molina Would Be A Nice Short Term Fix

An article by posted on September 24, 2009 0 Comments

Way too much is being made of comments from Jerry Manuel that sounded like Omir Santos will be the starting catcher next season. I must have come across a dozen stories that ran with that notion today, but let’s not read too much into what Manuel is saying regarding the catching situation. First, Manuel is […]

Angel Pagan Is The Mets Best Slugger Not Named Beltran

An article by posted on September 22, 2009 0 Comments

Angel Pagan is having himself quite a season, and is making the most out of the playing time he has gotten in leftfield and centerfield. While looking at his stats this morning, I couldn’t believe that among all Mets with 100 or more at-bats, only Carlos Beltran at .518, has a higher slugging percentage than Angel […]

Coming Soon To A Theatre Near You: World Champion Mets

An article by posted on September 21, 2009 0 Comments

It’s safe to say that one of the greatest sports movies of all time is 1984’s ‘The Natural.’ Although the ending may be a bit over the top, it truly succeeds as a story of personal triumph over failure. But imagine for a moment if the story was different. Imagine the movie starting out with […]

Let’s Party! Mets Clinch Fourth Place In 6-2 Victory

It was inevitable, but after some tense moments in the ninth inning that required the help of Francisco Rodriguez, the Mets finally did it.  They clinched fourth place in the National League East with their 6-2 victory over the Washington Nationals.  There were no mounted police present, making it easy for jubilant fans to run […]
