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. […]

Can The Mets Win With The Wilpons As Owners?

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 […]

It was once said in a famous quote, “Only Nixon could go to China”. Back in the sixties the Communist states of China and the Soviet Union broke off their strategic alliance. Nixon saw this as an opportunity to gain a Cold War edge on the Soviets by warming up to the Chinese. It was […]

Glad Omar Is Unwilling To Rush Prospects To Save Job

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 […]

The Dawn Is Coming Met Fans

The New York Mets have seen darker days than this; the midnight massacre in which Tom Seaver was traded away comes to mind.  Another bad time for the Mets and their fan base was in the early 90’s when the Mets had the worst team that money could buy followed by the failure of Generation […]

The Song Remains The Same

Yesterday, Mets owner Fred Wilpon met with reporters and responded to some questions. I was intrigued, but not surprised to this particular line of questioning: Q: An author said you were selling the team because of the Madoff scandal (Bernie Madoff pleaded guilty to 11 felonies involving a Ponzi scheme). Were those claims off-base? Wilpon: […]

Do Star Studded Acquisitions Lead To Winning Seasons?

An article by posted on December 18, 2009 0 Comments

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 […]

By Being Neither A Winner Or Loser, We Are Losers

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 […]

At Midnight Omar Turns Into A Pumpkin

An article by posted on November 19, 2009 0 Comments

Tonight when the clock strikes twelve, general managers everywhere will begin negotiating with free agents of their liking. The exclusive window for teams to negotiate with their own free agents expires at midnight tonight, beginning what will be another busy and very active hot stove season full. I have read several reports that although Omar Minaya still holds […]
