A smorgasbord of sports thoughts

June 16, 2010

A lot going on in the Big Apple....

The Mets are all of a sudden road warriors, the Yankees continue to dominate at home, Darrelle Revis may not be who we thought he was, and the Nets have a new coach.  Oh yea, and apparently Lebron James is bigger than New York City.  Yuck….

I have a lot on my mind, and it’s time to rant!

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 ?

Begging is never Flattering

Prolly not happening..but dude does look ill in an NY Jersey

The full court press to get Lebron to New York has officially begun.

In the words of my main man Russ Bengston via Twitter, “New York City shouldn’t have to pander. To use that ever-popular NBA phrase, it is what it is. You’re welcome if you come. If not? F**k you.”

Jason Bay stinks

May 6, 2010

 

Jason Bay was 0 for 4 with two more K's on Wednesday

Entering the 2010 season, one of my lesser concerns was Jason Bay and his adaptation to New York City.  Based off what he did replacing Manny Ramirez in Boston, I had no reason to doubt that Bay would find his place in Queens and serve as a lethal threat out of the clean-up spot.   In 2009 for the Red Sox, Jason Bay belted 36 home runs and racked up 119 RBI’s while hitting .267 and swiping 13 bases.  Those stats alone were more than worthy of a $70 million contract. 

After five weeks into the 2010 season, however, Jason Bay is starting to remind me of Carlos Beltran in 2005.  Read the rest of this entry ?

In good company

April 28, 2010

 

David Wright became the youngest Mets player to record his 1,000 career hit

The Mets ascended into first place after sweeping a double-header from the Dodgers on Tuesday.  What a difference 10 days make as the Amazing’s were left for dead after a 4-8 start.  Now, the Metropolitans will attempt to complete a 9-1 homestand Wednesday afternoon before a trip to Philadelphia against the struggling Phil’s.  Read the rest of this entry ?
