Billy Wagner returned to the Mets to make his first appearance in the major leagues in over a year, entering to a thunderous ovation from the Flushing Faithful.  However, the Citi Field premiere of Enter Sandman did not help send the Braves to Never Never Land.  Brian McCann pulled a long home run into the […]

Who’s The Real Top Prospect; Flores, Martinez Or… Thole

An article by posted on August 20, 2009 0 Comments

This season shortstop Wilmer Flores seems to have overtaken outfielder Fernando Martinez as the Mets top prospect. That said, there are many scouts out there who don’t think either of them are all they are cracked up to be. Yesterday, Tim Bontemps of the NY Post reported on what one scout had to say regarding the Mets […]

2004 Versus 2009 – Howe Bad Can It Get?

An article by posted on August 18, 2009 0 Comments

I decided to take a look at our 2004 season this morning. That was the last time the Mets finished below .500 and pretty much spelled doom for manager Art Howe and Interim General Manager Dan Duquette. That season the Mets finished in fourth place with a record of 71-91. Currently, the Mets have a […]

When Omar Minaya decided that Mike Pelfrey would slide into the number two spot in the rotation, many of us had raised eyebrows to say the least. Even though I would have rather seen Pelfrey hold down the fort at the bottom of the rotation I figured that maybe there was a slim chance that […]

For the second straight game, the Mets were forced to play without any of their core players and this time it really showed as they were annihilated by the Giants 10-1. It was the Mets’ 12th loss in their last 18 games, and things are really starting to go downhill fast. Livan Hernandez started and […]

The Citi Field Cat Takes Its Latest Victim

An article by posted on August 17, 2009 0 Comments

Blogger’s disclaimer:  This is a sequel to a previous post I wrote a few weeks ago.  This might look like a humorous piece, but after the events of Saturday’s game surrounding the concussion suffered by David Wright, I’m starting to think the Mets might need to take the contents of this blog into consideration, even […]

At Least We’re Set In Right Field For 2010

An article by posted on August 14, 2009 0 Comments

As I wrote back when the Mets first acquired him, the Mets were the big winners when they dumped the lackluster Church in exchange for the young righthanded former first rounder, Jeff Francoeur. About a week and a half later, I indicated that his recent hitting woes were simply a matter of making adjustments. Here […]

Howie Rose broke the news during today’s Met-Diamondbacks game that come this Friday the Mets will have a new look. For this weekend’s series against the San Francisco Giants the Mets will be wearing throwback uniforms. According to Rose, these uniforms will resemble uniforms worn in the late 1800′s early 1900′s. They will be cream […]

It figures that the Mets would suddenly pick a random weekend in August to suddenly decide that they want to make Citi Field more Mets-centric or as we like to say, MetsMerized! With the team continuing to struggle and attendance sagging, the Mets are slashing ticket prices and giving Mets fans a new reason to […]

On The Inside… Looking In

An article by posted on August 12, 2009 0 Comments

I was watching the post game show after one of our many recent losses. You know the kind I’m referring to. The kind of loss where our lack of hitting turns marginal starters into Sandy Koufax. The kind of loss where a team who has not been hitting suddenly erupts and breaks out of their […]
