Spring Training 2010

The Mets can’t catch a break with their players headed to the disabled list. Jose Reyes, who was out most of last season, is having his thyroid tested because of a possible imbalance.

I hope this is not a sign of the Mets upcoming season. Last season for the Mets was one to forget, with almost the whole team going on the disabled list at one-point during the season.

The crosstown rival Yankees are still trying to get the off-season kinks out. Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes were less than impressive in a 12-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Also, Nick Johnson is hoping to return to action after experiencing back stiffness.

Until then, see ya at Spring Training!

Mets…All Done!

Well…Mets’ fans don’t have to hang their heads down in disgust. The season is over…The Mets season is over.

What started out, as predicted by many in the media, to be the year turned into a MASH mobile unit being set-up in the CitiField parking lot.

We also can’t forget the laughable GM Omar Minaya and all the tricks he had up his sleeve — Adam Rubin, press conferences, Johan Santana injuries.

So folks, the bleeding has stopped for the Mets.

Until then, see ya at the park!

Mets Continue to Slide

The Mets were to be the team this year, but it is not going as planned. What the Mets need to do is start fresh with a new GM and manager. Bobby Valentine, I heard, is available.

Until then, see ya at the park!

Back on Track

It seems after the wild and strange press conference Monday, the Mets are back to playing baseball and winning.


Many sports media outlets think the Mets have finally turned the page after a hectic week of finger-pointing and verbal shots. Let’s hope this is all true? It’s time for baseball and not a soap opera. I must admit I thought I was watching “As The World Turns.”

With that, Omar Minaya better get to the waiver wire and start making some trades and turn this team around.

Until then, see ya at Citifield!

The Mets Train Wreck

Now it is official — the Mets are not a train wreck waiting to happen, but one.

The Mets press conference today with GM Omar Minaya turned into a circus.

Too much drama.

Too much dirty laundry.

It is time for Minaya to go and a further investigation into his comments about Daily News writer Adam Rubin lobbying for a front office job with the Mets.

If it is true that Rubin lobbied for a job? Then there is much more to the story than we know. This circus today only made the Mets look foolish. Time for the Wilpons to take control of their team and bring in new leadership.

I am sure this is not the last of word of the Minaya vs. Rubin fiasco. The Mets are a shame. The Mets need help.

One The Road: Philly

Traveling tomorrow to watch the Phillies and Cubs play at Citizens Bank Park. I hope the weather holds since it is about a two hour drive from my house on Long Island. We shall see. 

Also, since MLBlogs doesn’t support mobile blogging — unless it does and I am not aware of it — I’ll be posting from the game on my other baseball blog The Baseball Pad. I hope in the future MLBlogs will support this, so I can post from my Blackberry.

Right now, I’m watching the Mets on SNY and listening to Omar Minaya state his case about the team and his decisions on trades, etc. I think Minaya’s job might be in jeopardy? I’m not impressed with Minaya or Jerry Manuel because the Mets need to make some moves quickly.
Off to Philly! 
Unitl then, see ya at Citizens Bank Park!

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th to all and what a great day to attend a ball game — especially in New York. A lot of good games going on and the New York weather is finally beautiful.

Inspirational Quote
“Baseball, to me, is still the national pastime because it is a summer game. I feel that almost all Americans are summer people, that summer is what they think of when they think of their childhood. I think it stirs up an incredible emotion within people.” — Steve Busby
Until then, see ya at the park!

Strange Email

I received this email the other day from my SportsRadio NY email account. I don’t know if this is a hoax? Or this is real? I almost dropped my Blackberry when I received it, just because the Mets are in a downward slide and to read this makes me wonder.
To Whom It May Concern:

I worked for Hunt Construction. I was a foreman at Citi Field. There are 3 Phillies Jerseys buried in the ball park. As a lifelong Phillies fan, I felt it was my duty to jinx the Mets. I’m not telling you my real name for obvious reasons. The jerseys are: 

1. Under the Fanwalk bricks.
2. Jackie Robinson Rotunda in the vicinity of the Ticket Office window.
3. Near the vicinity of the ’47 Shop near right field.

I understand how some may not believe that jerseys are buried beneath Citi Field. Thats ok, I’m not trying to convince people. Take a look at when I posted this on this forum below (LAST SUMMER) This is proof that I’ve been sitting on this for a while.

Unlike the dope that revealed his identity for the Ortiz Jersey thing, nobody will even know who I am. Is this an original prank? No, but who cares? Did you invent every joke you ever told?? When your at Citi Field, say hi to the Burrell, Howard, and Utley jerseys beneath your feet. 

Until then, see ya at Citifield!
