I thought the Mets made a mistake when they decided they would put Bobby Parnell in the bullpen to start the season. Boy was I ever wrong! The more I see of this kid, the more there is to like. I’ve heard his name in trade rumors all off season long and even this season […]

An article by posted on May 15, 2009 0 Comments

I must be stupid. I just checked the standings and unless I forgot how to read them, it appears that we are in first place by 2 games and have won 10 out of our last 13. However, based on comments and suggestions by fellow Mets ‘fans’ one would think we were in last place […]

Is Big Pelf Really Big?

An article by posted on April 14, 2009 0 Comments

If you’re talking about his stature and his 6’7″ frame, than by all accounts Mike Pelfrey has earned the nickname of “Big Pelf”. However, if the word “big” is supposed to be indicative of his performance level when he takes the mound, well I’m not buying it. Not yet anyway. The Mets must have bought […]

Cory Sullivan Isn’t Messing Around

An article by posted on March 11, 2009

Cory Sullivan has adopted a take no prisoners approach to spring training this season. Even though he signed a major league contract in January to play with the Mets, he is taking no chances. He’s not walking around with a sense of entitlement believing that he doesn’t have to try hard because he is a lock to […]

Mets Would Be Smart To Cut Duaner Sanchez

An article by posted on March 9, 2009

I think it’s time we stop dreaming about the Duaner Sanchez we saw for three months in 2006, and start accepting the fact that the “pre taxi cab from hell” Sanchez is never coming back. It’s been three years… Lets move on already… The truth is that, he was riding a hot April in 2006 […]

An article by posted on March 2, 2009

What if there’s a method to the Mets madness? Could it be possible that the Mets refrained from pursuing Manny Ramirez or any other left fielder because they believe they have a real chance at securing Matt Holliday at the trade deadline? Adam Rubin of the Daily News hinted as much today when he opened […]

Let It Be

An article by posted on January 10, 2009

This offseason, Omar Minaya has fixed the bullpen. He hasn’t done much else; I would have signed Oliver Perez before Tim Redding. It’s such a shame they’re not even considering Perez. I would give him a multi-year deal over Derek Lowe any day of the week. With the departures of both Aaron Heilman and Scott […]

The Mets Are Not Trading Carlos Beltran

An article by posted on October 11, 2008

One of things I love most about the Hot Stove season is all the interesting trade rumors that we hear from the teams and the press that follows them. That being said, one of the drawbacks is all of the false claims and rumors that are not based on any legitimate information. In the last […]

We Have the Right to Question Omar Minaya

An article by posted on December 15, 2007

It is probably very hard…wait…it is very hard to be Omar Minaya right now. But watching the Diamondbacks aquire Dan Haren from the Athletics and then trade Jose Valverde to the Astros makes me wonder: what is Omar doing? Or not doing? We could have had Dan Haren, or at the very least Joe Blanton. And […]
