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 […]

Since the season started and we got socked with all these injuries, I really haven’t sounded the alarm as far as trades go. I don’t really subscribe to the notion of trading prospects for rental players. The only player I had any interest in acquiring, and one that I devoted an entire blog to, has been Alex […]

One long weekend into the second half of the season, and with still no relief in sight, the Mets dropped three out of four games to the Braves, after a 7-1 shelling on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. Fernando Nieve started, but his appearance would be cut short when he was carted off the field in the second […]

Okay so it’s not really the conference call from hell, but lately doesn’t it seem like Omar’s become the harbinger of death whenever he addresses the media? Today he had another one of those conference calls where he throws an unexpected curveball at us, or was it a spitter? There are many versions out there […]

First Half – Half Full Or Half Empty?

Nobody could have predicted the first half that the Mets have just completed, after an off season that fueled such high expectations. Sure there were some questions going into the season, but every team has questions, building a team is not an exact science. The Mets’ biggest off-season priority was to revamp the bullpen, and […]

In Defense Of Jeff Francoeur

An article by posted on July 11, 2009 0 Comments

It’s amazing how wide ranging the opinions have been on the trade that sent Ryan Church to Atlanta for Jeff Francoeur on Friday. It looks likes this trade has the fan base far more divided than the Lastings Milledge trade, with both sides either loving it or hating it. I took a spin around a few […]

An article by posted on July 7, 2009 0 Comments

Before the injuries started mounting, before the fielding and mental errors began to grow, the Mets’ front office made another error.  This error happened in the offseason and it was made by Omar Minaya.  The Mets could have acquired Jason Marquis from the Cubs for practically nothing and didn’t pull the trigger. First, as reported […]

Including today’s game with the Phillies, the Mets have now played 81 games.  They’ve reached the midway point of the season battered and bruised, but still breathing.  Their record stands at 39-42, leaving them four games behind first place Philadelphia.  Somehow, they’ve managed to stay competitive in the standings while occasionally looking pathetic on the […]

To begin, let me first commend the Mets on the remarkable fight and resiliency they displayed yesterday at PNC Park where they beat the Pirates 9-8 in ten innings. I thought they showed remarkable courage and fight under some intense adversity. These days, the Mets are not only faced with the challenge of battling the […]
