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.
