End of season report card for the Mets

October 8, 2010 by


For a season that opened up with hope, and which was carried to the All-Star break, the Mets once again flamed out and disappointed their fans and had their second consecutive losing season (79-83). Change is now on the horizon as GM Omar Minaya and manager Jerry Manuel were given their pink slips on Monday. […]

Mets' September screw-up

September 8, 2010 by


Dillon Gee certainly turned heads with his outing Tuesday and hopefully the Mets will give him regular starts in September. With the playoffs out of reach, the club needs to use the final month of the season to give players a chance to show what they can do. Which is why Bobby Parnell should be […]

The Mets’ 2005 Draft and FA signings

September 1, 2010 by


The 2005 draft has been very kind to the New York Mets. Five players selected that year have reached the major leagues; the seventh most of all National League clubs, but few of those clubs can match the impact of the Mets draftees: Mike Pelfrey (1st round), Jon Niese (2nd round), Bobby Parnell (9th round) […]

After Friday’s 7-5 loss to the Phillies, Mets manager Jerry Manuel awkwardly said it was a “tough loss,” the dying equivalent of “I’m sorry.” Condolences accepted. The news is no shock though. The Mets […]

Mets bite back

July 31, 2010 by


The New York Mets (53-51) rebounded from Friday’s loss with a 5-4 walk-off win in the ninth inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Jesus Feliciano led off the ninth with a long triple to right-center field.

Extra painful

July 24, 2010 by


The New York Mets (50-48) dropped a 3-2 decision to the Los Angeles Dodgers at Chavez Ravine on a 13th inning walk off home run by James Loney off Oliver Perez (0-4, 6.15).  It was the Mets 12th walk-off loss of the season. They are now 20-32 on the road and 2-8 on the road trip. The […]
