Congratulations, Mookie

The Brooklyn Cyclones won their first game under new manager and 1986 World Series hero Mookie Wilson last night beating the Staten Island Yankees 10-7. Congratulations, Mookie.



Off Day Transactions

Omar Minaya used the off day to make some moves. Nothing earth shattering but just enough to rattle the roster. The first of the moves was the release of veteran right handed reliver Mike DeJean. DeJean had allowed 36 hits and 18 walks in 25 2/3 innings this season. The nail in the coffin for […]



Mets Sign Santiago

I guess Mike Piazza put a scare into Omar Minaya last week when he left a game against the Houston Astros in the first inning. Perhaps fearing the team was a little thin at catcher should Piazza get hurt and be out for any length of time the Mets signed free agent catcher Benito Santiago […]



Mets End Skid

Click here for a recap of yesterday’s game. Carlos Beltran hit a 3 run homer in the 7 run 5th inning to give the Mets a lead they wouldn’t give up (no matter how hard Danny Graves tried). It was Beltran’s 8th homer of the year and first in a game not started by Pedro […]



Quick Quiz

Q: How do you load the bases on walks with one out and fail to score any runs in the inning? A: You put on a Mets uniform. This quiz was inspired by the Mets pathetic display of hitting with runners in scoring position in the top of the fourth inning of today’s game against […]



Wake Up, Doug Mientkiewicz

Doug Mientkiewicz is about to get a wakeup call. Brian Daubach was called up from AAA Norfolk to take Miguel Cairo‘s roster spot after Cairo was placed on the DL. Daubach is a first baseman and outfielder with some pop. Like Mientkiewicz, Daubach doesn’t hit for good average but he’s agressive and has a little […]



Podcasting Mets Games… Revisited

I hate when the Mets play on the west coast. With a family at home that doesn’t give me much opportunity to watch games it’s hard enough for me to follow the team when we’re in the same time zone. Shifting them over to Pacific time totally throws me off. I’m lucky if I can […]



Graves Finally A Met… Officially

The Danny Graves signing was finally made official yesterday and he was in uniform last night. The Reds will pick up the $6.25 million Graves was due under terms of his contract with them. The Mets will pay a prorated portion of the Major League minimum to Graves this year and own a $5 million […]



Floyd Picks Up Minky

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. Cliff Floyd hit a 3 run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Mets a 5-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The homer capped a wild game in which Marlon Anderson pinch hit an inside the ball park homer […]



Barry Bonds – Racist?

An article in the Chicago Tribue quotes Barry Bonds as calling Ron Kittle an idiot for commenting in his book how Bonds said he doesn’t sign autographs for white people.
