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. […]

2010 Mets Dopplegangers

September 13, 2010 by


One of the difficult things when analyzing the Mets offense this year is to separate the names from the numbers they have actually produced. Sure, yesterday’s lineup had Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes and David Wright in it but is it accurate to consider the performance the Mets are receiving from these players in 2010 to […]

Thole earns Nails comparison

September 9, 2010 by


“Josh Thole crowds the plate A LOT. He’s right on the line. Yet, he some how manages to pull the ball foul anytime they pitch him in. I also enjoy his pre-bat routine, with the crouching and repeatedly tapping the bat on the plate… it’s not exact, but, for some reason, it reminds me of […]

It’s Thole time now

August 24, 2010 by


With Rod Barajas clearing waivers and being traded to the Dodgers over the weekend, the Mets made a statement about their catching plans going forward. That is, it’s time to think about the future, and the future at the position is obviously rookie Josh Thole. It took a while, but the Mets finally got it […]

Barajas on comeback trail – now what?

August 13, 2010 by


On Thursday, Rod Barajas began his rehab assignment from a strained oblique in the Gulf Coast League (while hitting a three-run home run) and once he is fully healthy to return to the Mets the team will have a difficult decision. Will the Mets again roster three catchers and have Barajas, Josh Thole and Henry […]
