There’s some good news and there’s some bad news about Oliver Perez.  The bad news is he’s under contract for the 2011 season.  The good news is that 2011 is the last year of Ollie’s contract.  2010 is done for the not so amazin’ Mets.  Hopefully 2011 will be better for the Mets.  The Mets […]

All year long we’ve been told that the Mets are financially in good health. It’s been the mantra ever since the name Bernard Madoff made headline news with his Ponzi scheme and swept the Wilpon family and Sterling Enterprises on board his swarmy carpet ride; not to mention all the livelihoods he destroyed along the […]

“A man becomes preeminent, he’s expected to have enthusiasms. Enthusiasms, enthusiasms… What are mine? What draws my admiration? What is that which gives me joy? Baseball! A man stands alone at the plate. This is the time for what? For individual achievement. There he stands alone. But in the field, what? Part of a team. […]

This week, I had a conversation with a source who is very close to a member of the Mets organization.

Mets Need To Part Ways With Oliver Perez

An article by posted on June 1, 2010 0 Comments

The Oliver Perez experiment should be over!  Saturday’s putrid performance shows that this guy’s career with the Mets is over.  Pretty soon Perez will be lucky to throw batting practice for a single A team. I understand Perez is still owed more than 20 million dollars but he’s doing nothing at all for this team. […]

When a team in any sport is struggling everyone from the general manager to the coaches/manger to the players take the blame.  In some cases like the Mets it’s true.  Omar Minaya needs to go as does Jerry Manuel and most of his coaching staff.  I know of a certain pitcher making $36 million dollars […]

This Spring we’ve gotten to look at some of our young prospects and they have impressed fans, the media and the team.  The reports that the farm system was dead have been greatly exaggerated it seems.  Fernando Martinez, Ike Davis, Jon Niese and Jenrry Mejia are having great springs, so of course there has been plenty […]

The Mets Have A Major…Minor League Problem

An article by posted on March 22, 2010 0 Comments

It’s so easy for us to say the Mets are a dysfunctional franchise. We’ve certainly bared witness to it the last few years. One particular area of criticism that’s often pointed out is the Mets farm system, or lack there-of. The farm system is cultivated mostly by signing amateur free agents and the draft. The […]
