Going into the 2009 season hopes were high for the Mets. Most people believed that once the Mets signed Francisco “K-Rod” Rodriguez that all the problems from last year were solved. Last year the bullpen killed us in our race to the playoff’s but that was not the only reason why missed out of the playoff’s. The offense was not getting it done towards the end of last season, remember in the last 3 game [...]
According to former Mets GM Jim Duquette, now a baseball analyst for Sirius XM Radio, the Mets have canceled their Fall Instructional League as a cost-cutting measure. The decision will save the Mets approximately $300,000 and continues to add to the mounting evidence of financial upheaval despite denials from the Wilpon family. Duquette believes that it sends the wrong message to their developmental staff, young players in the system, and future draft picks and minor league free agents. [...]
For Sale: This vintage 1962 classic has a great paint job, but like any other used vehicle it needs a little work. You’ll want to get a new transmission (Johan Santana), V6 engine (Carlos Beltran), power steering (Carlos Delgado), a starter (John Maine), new brakes (J.J. Putz), shock absorbers (Jon Niese and Fernando Nieve), coil springs (Alex Cora, Ramon Martinez) and a catalytic converter (Jose Reyes). We installed a new Bose Stereo CD Player (Oliver Perez) six months ago, but we [...]
Say what you will about Mets ownership, but one thing they have shown is that they are 100% loyal to G.M. Omar Minaya. Since Carlos Beltran (remember him), was caught looking to end the 2006 playoff run for the Mets, the team has been in a state of steady decline. The Collapse of 2007 is still an open wound to me. The fact that the Mets rolled over and played dead during September was and [...]
Mets beat writer Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reported a little while ago in his blog that Bernie Madoff stole $700 million from the Wilpons. That is a lot higher than the originally reported $300 million that the Wilpon’s allegedly lost. Since the scandal broke late last year the Wilpons have not publicly admitted to how much they lost and the impact it’s had on the Mets. In fact since it was first [...]
So here we are on the verge of another mid-summer classic and my poor Mets find themselves 6 1/2 games out of first place with three teams to catch, and that’s the good news. The bad news is that we’re 6 1/2 games back in the wild card race with nine teams to catch. Geez… It’s so easy to point fingers and pick out all the things that went wrong in the first half, but why [...]
I know it sounds like bad dialogue out of a comic book or a Michael Bay movie but it is unfortunately true. Omar over the last couple of years seemed to be the “Teflon GM.” The last 2 seasons we have witnessed the Mets collapse and miss going into the playoffs by one game. Omar did not put a team together the past 2 seasons that played baseball in October. The way the season has [...]
The last couple of weeks fans and writers have been talking about the lack of power the Mets have displayed so far this season. The Mets this year have hit only 34 home-runs. Obviously the absence of Carlos Delgado has affected the number of home-runs the Mets will hit this season. Jose Reyes, who also has a lot of pop in his bat is out until the All-Star break. David Wright has so far only [...]
After last weeks four game losing streak I started to observe our own chat room as well as other Met chat rooms and MLB blogs and some are blaming Omar Minaya for the Mets miserable start this year. He didn’t sign the big free agents that were available this past off-season. Last year he signed Luis Castillo to a 4 year contract worth $25 million. This past off-season Omar went out and signed Fransisco “Please [...]
