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 ?

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 ?

April 12, 2010

The Mets failed to score a run against Cy-Young favorite Livan Hernandez

A bulls-eye was eventually going to be marked on Jerry Manuel and his job security.  On Sunday, the skipper jump started the process. 

Last week Jerry Manuel began to dig his own grave by erroneously fiddling with the lineup and not using his time wisely in Spring Training.  On Sunday, he practically put the nail in the coffin.  After Johan Santana let up a Grand Slam in the first inning yesterday, and the Mets were not able to muster any runs against Livan “The Great” Hernandez, Manuel said the following: Read the rest of this entry ?

December 30, 2009

...where dreams are made of

As 2009 comes to a close, and Luis Castillo drops the ball  in Times Square, we reflect on those moments (good or bad) in the past year that made New York sports entertaining, frustrating, and memorable.  Players went down, new players arrived, and even a Championship was won for the city.  Tears were shed, fans jumped for joy, and in a time of recession sports provided us with an outlet to escape.

Winter of Discontent….

December 15, 2009

We gotta do better than this

Maybe the winter is just starting but in the baseball world it’s almost over. Pitchers and catchers will begin reporting to sunny locales at the end of February and position players will be there soon after. The Mess, sorry I mean the Mets have yet to make a splash, let alone a ripple in this years free-agent market after losing 90 plus games last season. According to sources, the Phillies have signed Roy Halladay and John Lackey is headed to Boston. The Mets have sent offers to left fielder Jason Bay and catcher Bengie Molina, but have yet to receive acceptances.

Good evening Met fans.  Today, you wake up without John Lackey on your staff (signing with the Red Sox, pending physical) and now you can say hello to Roy Halladay….as a member of the Phillies.
