Updated by Joe D. at 6:30 PM After making inflammatory remarks against Met fans yesterday that rubbed many people including those in the organization the wrong way, Terry Collins acknowledged that he misspoke and took back some of the things he angrily said about Met fans while a guest on WFAN today. “The New York fans are maybe the most knowledgeable fans that I’ve ever been around,” Collins told Mike Francesa. “When the question was asked, it [...]
Mets manager Terry Collins was a guest on WFAN this afternoon and lets just say that his whole demeanor about outfielder Jordany Valdespin has done a complete 180. Collins said that Valdespin is the leading candidate to hit in the leadoff spot for the Mets on Opening Day and whenever the Mets are facing a righthanded pitcher. “Right now, the way Valdespin has been swinging the bat in that spot, we’re leaning towards him,” Collins [...]
As Zack Wheeler heads to minor league camp and begins to focus on what he needs to do to ready himself for a potential major league debut later this season with the Mets, let’s consider some of what we did get to see and hear while he was in Mets camp. Wheeler gave a concise self-assessment of his repertoire not too long ago during an interview with WFAN’s Mike Francesa: “I like to come at you [...]
You can mark it on your calendar. December 11th, 2012 is the day Sandy Alderson officially abused the trust of Mets fans for the final time. Yes, I’m well aware that there are plenty of you out there that saw this coming. I’ve heard from many of you, previously convinced that the team’s front office had hidden agendas. However, the fact remains that Alderson’s on-air confirmation, at the team’s Christmas party no less, that there [...]
Has anyone been listening to Mike Francesa absolutely kill the Mets on WFAN lately? Most likely many of you have, since Francesa garners a large audience, and rightfully so. He is a knowledgeable sports personality that commands respect based on his reputation. But seriously, talk about something other than degrading the Mets. This whole past week, Francesa has been tearing the Mets apart for their pathetic play. Yes, the Mets are pathetic right now, but [...]
Yesterday, WFAN’s Mike Francesa discussed how Mets broadcasters Howie Rose and Gary Cohen were “out of line” during this past weekend’s Subway Series. Francesa said that it’s great that the Mets have fans as announcers, but that they sometimes take it too far in rooting for their team, especially against the Yankees. Frankly, I love that Rose and Cohen are as die-hard of Mets fans as I am. Yes, I agree that there should be [...]
I live in an area where my cable provider doesn’t carry SNY. Where ESPN, FOX and TBS often black out their games and no one around here has the MLB network. I do get NESN, but who wants to hear what the SOX are doing and all those noisy advertisements? For me, this is really wonderful because I get WFAN with the best baseball announcers team now working. (Vin Scully works solo) So for every [...]
Last night while appearing on WFAN, New York Mets Beat Writer Adam Rubin announced that he will be departing the New York Daily News [Hat Tip: Tom Pich of MetsGuide]. He did not specify where he would be going other than that he would still be covering the Mets in some form. Today, Pich communicated with Rubin via email and was told that he will be joining ESPNNewYork.com, which will go online in about two [...]
During one of his legendary tirades, Mike Francesa lashed out at Omar Minaya and the Mets ownership during Friday’s show. Regarding Omar Minaya and the Wilpons he said: “Either they are a lot more ignorant than I thought, or they just don’t really care about winning. It can’t possibly be anything else. They just are plain ignorant or they just don’t give a damn.” “If I, who am not even a baseball executive could plainly see [...]
