Stop the Insanity

I was listening to Willie Randolph's report on WFAN this afternoon. Willie didn't give Joe and Sid the answer they wanted on Trachsel and Zambrano. Sure enough, afterwards we had to endure all of the conspiracy theory crap about how the Mets still have to justify the Scott Kazmir trade,...

What a Fool Believes

Mets 6 - Phillies 4 I'm so skeptical. I love the Mets, but I never allow myself to get unrealistic about their chances. If anything, I'm probably a little too much of a pessimist - it's a self-defense mechanism beaten into my psyche by too many bad teams, bad seasons,...

I Don't Want Manny! Part Duex

Yesterday I wrote why I didn't want Manny Ramirez on this team despite the obvious need to upgrade the offense. After I finished my post, I gave some more thought to this subject. I considered what I might say to Fred Wilpon and Omar Minaya if I had the chance....

I Don’t Want Manny!

Giants 4 - Mets 1 I spent some time thinking about what I would write about yesterday's stinker by the bay. I still don't know what to say. I think, along with the Mets, I just want to turn the page on this weekend and look to what's coming up....

The Cruelest Time

Giants 2 - Mets 1 I'm not going to kill myself over yesterday's loss. I can't second guess any of Willie's moves. The simple fact of the matter is that the Mets had an opportunity -- a Phillies loss, a well-pitched game by Glavine and chances to get the runs...

Just Call Me Mr. Sunshine

Mets 1 - Giants 0 At the end of last night's Mets win several random thoughts passed through my mind: This was the kind of game they would have surely lost a month ago. Thank God no more 10 pm games. Willie would have gotten killed by the disgruntled faithful...

The Other Side of Mediocrity

Mets 3 - Arizona 1 I was exhausted watching the game last night. If I possessed the smallest amount of sanity and common sense I would have just gone to bed, but I was curious. After all the months of clinging to .500 like a security blanket, were the Mets...

Pinch Me, I'm Dreaming

Mets 18 - Arizona 4 I watched most of the Mets - Diamondbacks game last night although I was falling asleep off and on as the game got further and further out of reach. You need adrenalin to keep you up for those western road games, but even the most...

August 24, 2005


I think a lot of Mets fans were hoping for a scenario last night where Victor Zambrano would get shelled pretty good but the Mets would manage to score enough runs to win. Surprisingly enough the offense came through and did their part, scoring 14 runs against the shell-shocked Diamondbacks,...

Here We Go

Just what the world needs -- another blog dedicated to the New York Mets. It just begs the question "why?" It's simple really. In this day of sports talk radio, there are all too many people willing to talk for the fan. I'm tired of hearing some pompous radio host...
