This morning while scouring the barren depths of the Mets blogosphere for anything newsworthy to share with you, I came across a very interesting article in the Daily News by Bob Raisman. He correctly states that building a team that has lasting positive effects is far better than targeting a big star for the purpose of an immediate public relations hit that usually fades once the season is underway. Of course, a team’s fortunes in the won/loss column […]
My blood boils with each passing day of the Hot Stove season. While the Mets keep signing guys like Alex Cora, Chris Coste and Henry Blanco, the Phillies, Yankees, Red Sox and even Mariners keep making big moves involving the likes of Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, Curtis Granderson and probably John Lackey. I knew the Mets wouldn’t be players in the offseason, because Omar Minaya and the Wilpons are, quite frankly, morons. They have failed […]
Last week, ESPN’s Andrew Marchand posted the following on his Twitter account: An associate of the Wilpons tells me that the only way to get them to spend this offseason is with public pressure and that might not work. Jon Heyman of SI.com also adds this in one of his reports last week: “Reports have suggested the Mets plan to cut from an NL-high $145 million payroll, but even a small reduction might be a tough […]
I know we still have almost a month to go before the 2009 regular baseball season is over but lets face facts the Mets season ended in July. It’s time for the Mets and us the fans to look to 2010. This past week Josh Thole joined the Mets for their series in Colorado. Thole had his first major league game last Thursday going 2-for-5 on the day and stole 2nd base. He had a […]
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 […]
