An article by posted on October 26, 2009 0 Comments

Fellow Mets fans, it is with sadness that I must report that our nightmares have become a reality. The Doomsday Series is now upon us, as both the Phillies and the Yankees have earned the right to face each other in the 2009 World Series. They will be playing in the Fall Classic no Mets […]

The Mets finally met with sought after lefthander Aroldis Chapman and his agent on Friday. According to Newsday, but it was unclear if they discussed financial parameters with the 21-year-old Cuban defector. Chapman began meeting with several teams on Wednesday when he arrived in New York, and he also plans to meet with the Yankees, Red Sox and […]

Mets Aren’t The Only Team That Peaked In 2006

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.

Did Brad Lidge Sell His Soul?

An article by posted on October 10, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]
