A few weeks ago I did something all Mets fans do nowadays: I sat down to watch other teams play in the post-season. I had my Mets cap on, a can of Coke, some pretzels. And within 5 minutes I heard news that surprised me. The Indians were returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2007 (as if that was a long time). The Indians? Really??? Cleveland, ‘The Mistake by the Lake,’ was […]
When I was a child, my mother and father always asked me what did I want to be when I grew up; I think they knew the answer before I even said it because I didn’t go anywhere without my baseball glove. I wanted to be a Major League baseball player; I wanted to be a NY Met. It was all I could dream about. I wanted to dress up in the uniform and run around […]
Carlos Beltran left Game 1 of the World Series with bruised ribs on Wednesday night after robbing David Ortiz of a grand slam in the second inning. Beltran went full throttle and slammed into the short right field wall to make the spectacular grab. Beltran stayed in the game, but could be seen holding his side and pressing his chest in the outfield before the inning ended. He never made it out for the third inning […]
I was recently speaking to a good friend who told me that if I want a real shot at a career in baseball, the job fair held at the Winter Meetings is something that I would have to attend. It made sense, because applying for jobs via team and league websites seemed no different than walking into your local convenient store and buying a “Win for Life” scratch off. I decided to do some research […]
Commissioner Sandy Alderson? I get this question asked a lot, and three years ago I would have said yes. But a lot’s happened since then and today I don’t even see him being among the top five contenders. There was a great article on this topic about three months ago by Jayson Stark of ESPN.com, who begins by saying that after so many previous occasions over the years in which Bud Selig has hinted at […]
Most Valuable Player Award – David Wright There is little contest to oppose David Wright as team MVP. Harvey put up ridiculous numbers in his sophomore season, but Wright helped the Mets every day while Harvey only helped every 5th day. With a .307 BA, a .390 OBP and a SLG of .514, there is no question that David was the most prominent offensive force the Mets had. It is hard to judge him on […]
Tiger’s skipper Jim Leyland will not be back at Comerica Park in 2014, says Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports via Twitter. The 68-year old longtime manager informed his players as well as the team following their Game 6 loss in the ALCS to the Boston Redsox that he intends to step down and that it was time for someone younger to take the reins. A press conference has been called by the Tigers to announce Leyland’s […]
Over the past several seasons the Mets have shown the fans how important pitching is to the organization. They have developed and brought up homegrown pitching prospects to debut with the team, with the likes of Jon Niese, Dillon Gee, Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Jenrry Mejia, and Bobby Parnell. Each have shown signs of brilliance, but due to injuries, they have not been able to help the team put together winning seasons. But the Mets […]
A few fringe major leaguers were removed from the Mets 40 man roster on Thursday. Not a single tear was shed onto my iPhone when I read that Mike Baxter, Robert Carson, Sean Henn, and Greg Burke were no longer Mets. No one can argue that the current roster of the New York Mets was the one taking us to the promised land. These last few lean years were the holdover years. Sandy needed time […]
