Maine on the DL

John Maine was placed on the DL today with rotator cuff tendinitis.. So much for not having an injury. I’m surprised it took the team this long to take a serious look at him. The guy’s a gamer and wants to play so you can’t rely on him to tell you when he’s hurt. That’s […]

Don’t Pull Maine From Rotation Just Yet

After John Maine‘s bad outing the other night there was talk of Maine being pulled from the Mets starting rotation. Manager Jerry Manuel actually had to sleep on the decision before coming out yesterday to say that Maine would remain in the rotation. I’m trying to figure out what the big deal is about. Yes, […]



Reyes To Have Surgery; Minaya To Blame?

Mets Make Right Move on Maine to the DL

The Mets finally made a prudent injury decision when they placed John Maine on the DL last night with a sore shoulder. The Mets had previously made a rotation change that would have given Maine an extra days rest before his next start but later decided to shut him down. This decision makes sense. Maine […]



Like Watching A Train Wreck

I can’t turn my back on this team for even a minute these days. On Monday I turned off the game to do some work when the Mets led 5-0 only to return in the 8th inning to see the tail end of J.J. Putz‘s meltdown. Then last night I had something to do during […]
