1. Just What the New York Mets Needed

    Tuesday's game against the Braves had more drama than an episode of Law & Order, and it was all packed into the last 20 minutes. Castillo makes a little league error. Then Delgado tops it by dropping the easiest flyball you've ever seen...

  2. Enjoy Carlos Beltran While It Lasts

    Carlos Beltran is a force to be reckoned with...for now. Like any good Mets Lifer, I realize that the good times only last for so long before utter and total disappointment enters the picture...

  3. The Mets Need a Chase Budinger Moment

  4. Bring the Bad Boys Back

    Not Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Not the '88 Pistons either. I'm talking the Ray Knights of the world. Where have all the bad boys gone? They've been replaced by a nonchalant Carlos ...

  5. Walks Are Like Kryptonite for the Mets

    Sean Green was visibly ticked. He should be. He just hit a batter and then walked the next two to force in the game winning run with the bases loaded. That was the end of what should have been a tide turning game for the Mets...

  6. The Prediction for the Mets vs Phils Series: Pain

    To quote the eloquent and loquacious Clubber Langer from Rocky 3, I'm predicting "pain" this weekend in the Mets vs Phillies series.The Mets are down in the dumps. From a mental and on field performance perspective, this team is pretty low...

  7. The Mets Have More Than One Putz

    It was bound to happen: the first post of the year with a really bad Putz pun...but it had to be done. This team is looking like a bunch of putzes, and here are my top culprits: JJ Putz—Putz is a putz (it's just too easy)...

  8. Mets Bullpen: Glory Days Were Back Again

    The power went out in my town last night around the fifth inning. About the same time the Mets pitching lost its power too. In between getting the kids calmed down and back to sleep, I was able to watch the Mets bullpen dismantle on my BlackBerry...

  9. Fixing David Wright

    Move over Freud, Descartes and Dr. Phil. The doctor is in and I'm ready to put David Wright in treatment. Sure Mr. Wright had a good showing last night going 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored and an RBI, but don't be fooled into thinking his problems are over..

  10. Link: Time for Tim McCarver to Go

    I can't stand Tim McCarver. Even in elementary school, I remember hating this guy and wondering why on earth he was an announcer for the Mets. He's the nails on the chalkboard of baseball commentating...

  12. Who Is This Carlos Beltran?

    There's a beast playing center field for the Mets this April. Not sure who this guy is, but the announcers keep telling me it's Carlos Beltran. Can't say I'd recognize him if they didn't say so...

    It's not even May, but I'm already annoyed, agitated, and other adjectives that express distaste for this Mets team. Time to open the flood gates: Hate the lack of fundamentals...

  14. Will the 2009 Mets Starters be the 2008 Blowpen?

    The Mets fixed the bullpen, but the starting rotation looks like it's in need of some repair. Another horrible starting pitching performance for the second straight night against the Cardinals ultimately lead to yet another loss...

  15. Once Again Everybody, Meet the Mess...

    True story: When I was a kid, I had this friend who used to slide in to any base on concrete. Concrete! And this was wiffle ball. Monday night, we witnessed direct proof that this team just does not give 100 percent all of the time...

  16. The Mets Leave 1,600 Men On Base

    Based on some stats from ESPN.com, the Mets are on pace to leave 10 men on base per game this season. Ten men a game. That's over 1,600 men left on base for the entire season...

  17. New York Mets' Ownership Clueless Yet Again

    If not being able to hit with men on base isn’t enough to anger Mets fans, then the decision from Mets management to remove an impromptu signature by Dwight Gooden on the wall in the Ebbets Field Club at Citi Field will absolutely infuriate them...

  23. Is Luis Castillo the Key to the New York Mets' Lineup?

    We know what to expect from Reyes, Wright, and Beltran. If they don't produce, the team is in a world of hurt. We even know what to expect, for the most part, from Carlos Delgado. If he doesn't produce...

    What a way to open a new stadium. Actually when you think about it, it was opened in typical Mets fashion. The leadoff hitter for the other team gets a home run to open the game. The Mets starting pitcher struggles...
