Why We Can’t Have A Yankees-Phillies World Series

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

The Yankees finished with the best record in baseball, swept the red-hot Twins in the ALDS and are now playing the Angels in the American League Championship Series.  The Phillies won their third straight division title, were clutch in Colorado and are now trying to repeat as National League Champions.  Both teams are currently three […]

Should Mets Get Into A Bidding War On Lackey?

An article by posted on October 12, 2009 0 Comments

Last week, the Mets made it clear that getting a starting pitcher would be a “top priority”, and that “money would not be an object” as they seek to put a “championship caliber team” on the field in 2010. Both Jeff Wilpon and Omar Minaya specifically said that the Mets needed another starting pitcher when asked […]

Did Brad Lidge Sell His Soul?

Can The Phillies Repeat? Or Did Brad Lidge Sell His Soul To The Devil? Last year the Phillies hit on all cylinders, just at the right time – playoff time. The Mets were mostly responsible for the Phillies winning the division. But as the playoffs started, the Phillies clicked, easily taking the NLDS from the […]

Do You Ever Wonder?

Do you ever wonder what guys like Johan Santana think after suffering through two straight non-playoff years?  Last year the Mets collapsed in September for the second straight year, and the Twins were a one-game playoff away from reaching the postseason.  This year the Twins are battling the Tigers for the AL Central crown while […]

Derek Jeter broke the all-time hits record for the Yankees when he collected his 2,722nd hit in the third inning of Friday night’s game against the Orioles. In honor of his great achievement, I would like to congratulate Ed Kranepool for being the all-time hits leader for the Mets. (You didn’t think we were going to […]

This is an Epic Power Outage

An article by posted on September 2, 2009 0 Comments

While we all know how the Mets have suffered what has basically amounted to season-ending injuries for several players, among them arguably our two top sluggers in Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado, I don’t think any of us expected this power outage to be legendary.  Because that’s what this is bordering on. The Mets have […]

Mets Minors Seem To Have Major Concerns

An article by posted on August 19, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets Minor League system has been the subject of debate all season long in 2009. The criticism is mostly justified in my opinion based on two things. 1. The Mets claim that they have a superior farm system loaded with talent that they consider untouchable. The overall standings of the Mets minor league affiliates tells a […]

‘The Bronx Zoo’ Moves To Queens

An article by posted on July 28, 2009 0 Comments

Just a few short seasons ago we seemed on the edge of something great. We were preparing ourselves for several years of NL dominance unprecedented in Mets history. We locked up young studs David Wright and Jose Reyes to long term contracts, added 5-tool superstar Carlos Beltran and mixed in veteran presences like Pedro Martinez […]

Random Stats and Thoughts

An article by posted on July 22, 2009 0 Comments

We can beat a dead horse all day long about how bad and disappointing the 2009 Mets have become, and how we’re going to have to endure a few months of meaningless baseball now that all hope for the playoffs is basically lost.  So instead of beating the horse, I’m just going to point out […]

Can Things Get Better? Maybe

An article by posted on July 15, 2009 0 Comments

For as bad as the Mets have looked at times this season (and I have advocated blowing up the team or just not paying attention to them anymore), it’s almost miraculous that they are not worse than three games under .500 and 6 ½ games out of first place.  When you think about the lousy […]
