The Phillies Stink!

The Phillies Stink!

Wow! There’s not much more to say. That the Mets swept the Phillies is incredible in and of itself. But shutting them out three games in a row? Nobody could have expected that. And coming off winning two out of three from the Yankees, and you can safely say the Mets are on a roll. […]

Your 2010 Mets -- At Least They're Not Boring!

Your 2010 Mets — At Least They’re Not Boring!

Say what you want about the Mets, but they’re certainly not boring. Whether it’s an eight game winning streak or playing a 20 inning game or their owner flying down to Atlanta to talk to the manager, it’s always something interesting. The latest twist in Metsland is John Maine being pulled from Thursday night’s game […]

Worst. Series. Ever.

Worst. Series. Ever.

I’ve been watching the Mets for decades now (man, I’m old). There have been many ups and downs over the years — unfortunately more downs than ups. But I’ve got to say, I don’t think I’ve seen them play a worse series than the one just concluded in Florida. It’s not that they lost four […]

Bud Selig, Bad Man

Bud Selig, Bad Man

The Mets: Remarkable?!

But on the other hand (the hand we’ll be chatting about), it is quite remarkable, considering what has gone down this season. To wit: – The Mets are missing their best player, Carlos Beltran. Take […]

What the Mets Need

What the Mets Need

Oakland A’s GM Billy Beane, who sometimes thinks he invented the game, once broke down a baseball season like this — the first two months, you evaluate your team and see what it needs. The next two months you go out and fill those needs. And the seemingly perfect team plays the last two months. […]

1 Out of 3 Ain't Bad, But...

1 Out of 3 Ain’t Bad, But…

The Mets are down to earth. Hell, it was bound to happen. Let’s face it — losing two out of three to the Phillies on the road is not a horrible thing. It’s just the way they lost that was disheartening. After crushing the Phillies on Friday night for their eighth straight win, the Mets ran into […]
