Wake Up Mets Fans, It’s 2015

By at 29 August, 2014, 9:10 am

I hope the promotion of Dilison Herrera comes with instructions for the manager that (a) Herrera is to play every day the rest of the season and (b) is never to be put in the 8th spot of the lineup. If the instructions are carried out by Terry Collins, it will force Mets fans to […]


Did Bud Selig Make The Wilpon’s An Offer They Couldn’t Refuse ?

By at 26 August, 2014, 10:01 am

  Put your seat belt on as it’s purge my brain day here at The Eddie Kranepool Society, so the seat belt sign will remain on for this whole post as I’m expecting a lot of turbulence. The flight crew will be serving refreshments shortly. How ridiculous is it that the Mets are looking to […]

      Com’on Sandy, Fred and Jeffey Show me the way to a pennant contender!!!!!!   I see that yesterday’s post struck a chord with many readers and fellow Mets bloggers who have the same feelings I do. Some even thought that yesterday was a swan song for me and The Eddie Kranepool Society. […]

    I’ve been writing on this blog for 13 years and for 9 of those years it’s been fun. I couldn’t wait to post something here and discuss the wins, loses, positive steps the organization was making and pointing out their failures. But as I said the last 4 years have been a chore […]


Terry Collins Will Be Back In 2015, Oh How I Miss AT&T Park

By at 14 August, 2014, 10:05 am

  So the word around social media is that Terry Collins will return as Mets manager in 2015. Not a shock, he’s everything Sandy Alderson covets in a manager.  He follows orders, says all the right things in the press, TV and radio and is the essence of an organization man. I and many of […]

    We had a lively episode of The Kult of Mets Personalities this past Saturday,  Back after a two week vacation and I wish I were still in California, still sitting on the beach in Santa Monica watching the “sights” but vacations come to an end and for the first time in my work career I […]
