Hit Braun = Hit Wright?

People are talking a lot about Terry Collins taking David Wright out of last night’s game as well as Wright’s reaction. Honestly I’ve been waiting to see Wright behave that way for years. For those who don’t know what happened: After a solo home run by Rickie Weeks in the seventh inning Mets reliever D.J. […]



My Response on Beltran and Wright

Last night I was called to task when, on Twitter, I said that Carlos Beltran was not as good as his hype and endorsed the opinion that David Wright is not a superstar. The challenge came in the following form: Let’s take these issues one at a time. When the Mets signed Beltran he was […]



Mets Need To Add To Player Leadership

During last night’s game between the Mets and Phillies ESPN’s Jon Miller and Joe Morgan made the point (more than once) that the Mets team needs to man up. (That’s my interpretation. They didn’t say it exactly that way.) This is not a new concept. I’ve seen countless blog posts and Twitter messages saying the […]



Lifeless Mets Barely Beat Second Division Team

The Mets beat the Pirates last night thanks to one of the longest singles I’ve ever seen hit in my life. The hit came from the bat of David Wright in the 11th inning and scored Endy Chavez from third base. Usually when a team wins an extra innings game there are feelings of euphoria, […]

Lo Duca To Have Surgery

Many Mets fans, myself among them, shook their heads when the Mets opted to not re-sign catcher Paul Lo Duca. Then Lo Duca’s named turned up prominently in the Mitchell report and it appeared obvious that the Mets knew this would happen and decided to let him go rather than have to answer more questions […]



Mitchell Report Is Out

The Mitchell report was released a little earlier this afternoon. Several names familiar to Mets fans were included. One of those names is Todd Hundley. While with the Mets in 1996, a break out 41 homer year for the former catcher, Hundley bought steroids from Kirk Radomski on at least 3 occasions. Hundley was a […]



Lo Duca Signs With Washington

Paul Lo Duca signed with the Washington Nationals yesterday. Good luck, Paul. Except for when you play against the Mets, of course.



Noble Talks With Wagner

Marty Noble of MLB.com posted an article about a recent conversation he had with Mets closer Billy Wagner. As usual Wagner had a lot to say about the state of the Mets and he didn’t hold back. Read the article to get the full story but here are some teasers. On not re-signing Paul Lo […]



Minaya And Randolph Relationship

Looks like there may be some tension in Metsville between manger Willie Randolph and general manager Omar Minaya. While serving up food at the Bowery Mission yesterday Randolph was asked about the tams catching situation and Paul Lo Duca in particualr. His response: “I’m only the manager, not and the general manager and this is […]
