Family Fued

August 12, 2010

Looks like K-Rod was living foul.  Sources exclusive to TONY Sports are reporting that the brawl between K-Rod and his father-in-law was regarding infidelity issues.  Stay tuned for more details…

Boiling Point

June 3, 2010

 

Johan Santana has been dominant once again this season, with an ERA of 1.29 in his last five starts and an ERA of 2.75 for the season.  If you dig deeper into the numbers, and take out the one inning in which he let up nine runs to the Phillies who were illegally stealing signs, his ERA dips down a full run to 1.75 on the year.  However, the lefty has just four wins on the season, and Wednesday afternoon against the Padres was another wasted Johan Santana effort for the Mets.  While most players would love the opportunity to play in New York, one has to begin wondering whether Santana secretly wishes he could exile himself from the city and the organization.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Groundhog Day

May 24, 2010

 

Everything is all 'high-fives' in Mets land...for now.

For one weekend, the New York Mets were able to lay claim to the New York baseball throne by defeating the hated Yankees in an important series for the franchise.  For three days, Mets fans could boast that Pelfrey was better than Phil Hughes and any thoughts of Sabathia being the better ace than Santana were put to bed.  While the two wins in the past two days appeared to have saved Jerry Manuel’s job, and put some life into the Mets season, fans of The Amazins must keep their excitement in check. 

After all, haven’t we seen this same story before?  Read the rest of this entry ?

The State of the Union

May 21, 2010

After a 10-7 win over the Nationals Thursday night, the Mets completed a 2-6 road trip and limp home facing six games at Citi Field that could be the coup de grace for Jerry Manuel.  Despite an abundance of injuries, three games against the Yankees will be no cake walk and the red-hot Phillies loom after the weekend.  A mediocre Mets team could find themselves six or so games under .500 by the end of next Thursday.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Bench Woes

May 5, 2010

The Mets bench is usually solid...this year..not so much

The Mets bench since their 2006 NL championship game appearance has always contributed to winning in Flushing. Whether it was a spectacular defensive play by Endy Chavez or a clutch hit from journeyman Marlon Anderson, the bench always found a way to make it through.

No Molina for you

January 19, 2010

Bengie Molina is still holding out

Update:  1/20/10-

The Giants have signed Bengie Molina to a 1-year, 4.5 million dollar contract.  The Mets offer was rumored to be a 1-year, 5 million dollar contract with incentives and a possible option for a second year.  Interesting…

Original Post:

Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that free-agent catcher Bengie Molina has turned down the Mets most recent offer, believed to be a two-year contract.  The Mets have now started to focus more on free-agent RHP Joel Pineiro (sigh.)

According to Buster, the Seattle Mariners have now entered the mix for Molina.

Momma didn’t raise no fool…

Omar Minaya has one more chance to get this right.

 

Does Omar Minaya take Mets fans for idiots?

Four years at $65 million for Jason Bay? Is he serious?

An offer like that is not only egregious, but a spat in the face of Mets fans, and an equally saliva-filled loogie in the eye of Bay. Read the rest of this entry ?
