Busting Down The Front Door Of Failure

You hear a lot about teams “backing into the playoffs” … you know, clinching a playoff berth with a loss because some other team they needed to lose also lost. The Mets, they back into nothing. They dive head first into the cesspool that is elimination. The Mets had a good night against the Atlanta […]

One Dollar Bill

Wasting Washingtons

I’m getting mixed messages about the Mets and their finances. Specifically about their make believe pursuit of Cuban slugger Yasmani Tomas. While nobody is a sure thing, many of the high end players from the Cuban national team have found a good level of success in the majors. Tomas is considered a high end player, […]

Mets 2007 World Series Tickets

Pouring One Out For Oakland

I like to watch the baseball. When the Mets aren’t on, I search for all sorts of games to watch from the league. And seeing as if I’ve got plenty of time after Ruben Tejada grounds out to second base to end another Mets loss at 10:30 PM, I watch a lot of west coast […]

Marlins celebrate

Back To Losing, Gare

Dillon Gee had a bad first inning, and the Marlins turned into nine Mark Belangers on Wednesday as Miami defeated the Mets 4-3. Adeiny Hechavarria and Garrett Jones turned in web gems, but it was Marcell Ozuna’s inning ending catch at the wall off the bat of Wilmer Flores in the fifth with two runners on that […]

Mets clinch East 1986

A Somewhat Happy Anniversary

It’s incredible to think that 28 years ago right this very minute I was getting ready to go to Shea Stadium to see Dwight Gooden vs. Dennis Eckersley in a potential clinching game for the N.L. East. What you might have forgotten was that the Mets had to lose three straight in Philadelphia and then […]

Wilmer Flores six RBI

Perchance To Dream

I’m trying to figure out of Wilmer Flores’ two HR’s and six RBI are a stepping stone to the everyday shortstop job in 2015, or a sure sign that Brad Penny should retire. Hell, it’s probably a little of both. But to see it happen was soothing … calamine lotion on arms full of mosquito […]

deGrom Camo

My ABC’s Have Thirteen K’s And One L

It shouldn’t even drive me this insane, this latest bottle of diarrhea that the Mets have served up to us hoping to classify it as vintage because of the night Jacob deGrom had. These games mean absolutely nothing to nobody. The fact that deGrom made history by tying the major league record for K’s to […]

Terry Trippy

Baghdad Terry Strikes Again

“They’ve got a good team. They’ve done a nice job. I don’t think we’re that far away. (…) They’re going to be in good shape. They are young, and they’re going to have another year under their belts, too. But we’ve made a lot of changes here, and I agree exactly with what [general manager Sandy Alderson] […]

Toys R Us

The Price Of Bryce

A note on the picture above: Many of Major League Baseball’s stadiums have beautiful scenery outside them to use for bump shots. Ravines. Mountains. Bridges. Skylines. Citi Field, in its immediate area, has a Toys R Us overlooking the off ramp to the Van Wyck. And apparently that’s the go to shot for scenery in […]

Jenrry Mejia Fishing

Sue Me For What?

I’ve got percoset running through my bloodstream and I’m really, really sleepy. So I might not have seen it right. Did the Mets actually beat the Nationals at Citi Field? And did Jenrry Mejia enter a fishing contest after the game? Mejia’s celebration symbolizes the fact that the Mets will be going fishing, instead of […]

Bartolo Colon gives up HR

Timing Is Everything, And Bartolo Ate His Watch

If you read this blog regularly, then along with being starved for entertainment, you probably think I’m as happy as a pig wallowing in his own feces to finally see Nationals hitters get pitched inside. Well you would be wrong. On Thursday, the Mets found out that three games against the Rockies does not a […]

Jeff Wilpon Parliment

Jeff Wilpon: Still A Dick

I’m not going to go too deep into this here. I’m already sick of this nonsense that Fred Wilpon and The Golden Sperm put this franchise through on a day in/day out basis. But Jeffy is being sued for sexual discrimination, in the latest embarrassing moment for a franchise that seems to be full of […]

Is There A Disabled List For Bloggers?

I really want to come off as hipster and say that my absence from this blog was about me making a statement about how we’ve become slaves to the mundane writing about these late season games as if they mean something besides renting out a laboratory trying to figure out new ways to lose. About […]
