So for a change of pace today I would like to take a walk down memory lane and remember the Montreal Expos. The team the Washington Nationals were, before they became the Washington Nationals. When Major League Baseball […]

It was revealed a few hours ago that the Mets were offered Cy Young winner Roy Halladay for a collection of Bobby Parnell, Fernando Martinez, Jon Niese, and Ruben Tejada and Omar Minaya rejected the trade.  Many seem to see this as a way of giving up, and it could appear that way.  But let’s […]

Has anyone been watching SportsCenter recently?  I happened to be watching this morning and noticed another Not Top 10 list.  Immediately, I remembered the recent Not Top 10 where they focused on the Mets.  Apparently, the Mets’ follies had become fodder for jokes in Bristol.  The SportsCenter crew couldn’t contain themselves as they were running […]

The Mets may have just lost Gary Sheffield to the disabled list after he pulled up lame trying to chase down a Yunel Escobar double. Sheffield caught up with the ball, flipped it to Angel Pagan, and grabbed his right leg in pain. After a long injury delay, he was escorted off the field by […]

I read an article on the internet earlier this week about how a group of agents want the new union chief to look into whether or not the owners committed collusion this past off season when it came time to sign free agents. The first thought that crossed my mind was “you got to be […]

By August 12, a little less than one month from today, we’ll have a good idea whether the Mets will still be hunt for post season play, or if the 2009 Met season will end in disappointment (like the past three years). Thursday the Mets begin their first road trip of the second half with […]

Petey’s a Philly… Yuck!

An article by posted on July 15, 2009 0 Comments

Indications are that Martinez is now a Phil for something like a million bucks with an incentives package worth $1.5 million, with an official announcement just hours away. Recall back in spring that Martinez supposedly wanted 5 million for the year, and this was a leading reason the Mets wouldn’t bite. Well, to many it made […]

So here we are on the verge of another mid-summer classic and my poor Mets find themselves 6 1/2 games out of first place with three teams to catch, and that’s the good news. The bad news is that we’re 6 1/2 games back in the wild card race with nine teams to catch. Geez… It’s […]
