METS HEAD TO PHILLY TO TEAR THE ROOF OFF THE MUTHASUCKA!!!

By at 30 April, 2010, 9:42 am

Not much detail from me today as I have to get some work done so I can leave early and head to the field for a 5:30 game. The good thing about the 5:30 games is there is a two hour time limit and the ride from the there to my house is about 10 […]

FINALLY, PLAYING LIKE MEN

By at 29 April, 2010, 10:04 am

When it came time to step up, John Maine did just that. Or maybe it was the fear of seeing Jerry Manuel yank Ollie Perez after 3.2 innings that scared Maine straight or should I say scared the movement out him as Maine, still unable to hit 90 mph on the radar gun with his […]

PROCEEDE WITH CAUTION METS FANS

By at 28 April, 2010, 11:47 am

We have not had much to be happy about around here in awhile and believe me I want to dance a jig in a blue and orange kilt but I have to step back a bit and look over this week of prosperity and critique it just a bit.
The play of the game last night […]

THE GAME FINALLY BREAKS RIGHT FOR THE METS

By at 26 April, 2010, 10:50 am

I wonder who Mother Nature was more sick of, home plate umpire Mike Esterbrook or the inane droning of Joe Morgan but whoever it was, Mets fans thank her for the heavy rain that ended last nights Mets game and Big Plef’ heavy lifting pitching performance with a rain shortened win over the struggling Braves.

THEO EPSTEIN’S DREAM TEAM PLAYS IN FLUSHING

By at 25 April, 2010, 11:46 am

I wonder if Theo Epstein in the privacy of his domicile, switches his Extra Innings package over to SNY to root for the Mets ? The Mets right now are playing the way Epstein had hoped his Red Sox would when he ran all his statistical analysis that told him pitching and defense is the […]

STARTING PITCHERS GOING DEEP INTO GAMES ARE AN ENDANGERED SPECIES

By at 23 April, 2010, 11:11 am

I hope Frankie Rodriguez can pick up a fork and knife this morning to eat his breakfast, I mean the guy had to come in to pitch in the 8th inning last night instead of his customary 9th inning to get a (GASP!!!!) 5 out save!!!!!! Rodriguez had to throw 25 pitches to complete this […]

SOMEDAYS YOU’RE A PEACOCK, OTHER DAYS A FEATHER DUSTER

By at 22 April, 2010, 10:56 am

A very busy couple of days kept me away from here yesterday. It all started Tuesday morning. I had a 5:30 game that evening so I wanted to get my work done in the morning so I could take a couple of hours off. I get an e-mail from fellow BBA member, Daniel Shoptaw of […]

CRYSTAL BLUE AND ORANGE PERSUASION

By at 20 April, 2010, 10:21 am

Look over yonder/what do you see?
The sun is a risin/most definitely  

Maybe all those who jumped off the Mets bandwagon will end up like a European tourist stuck at JFK, while those of us who stick by our team, through good times and bad, in pulled hamstrings and very rare good health till death or […]

IKE DAVIS ON THE WAY, BUT DON’T THINK HE NEEDS TO SAVE THE DAY

By at 19 April, 2010, 1:30 pm

Ike Davis was pulled from the Buffalo Bison line up today and is en route to Flushing. Is he the Savior? No and no one is claiming he is what he is, is a player to get excited about watching as the rest of the team flounders.
If you prefer Mike Jacobs or Fernando Tatis at […]
