God and Casey Stengel Talk Mets

“Dutch! Long time no see,” Said God. “Please — pull up a chair.” The legendary Casey Stengel winked and sat down. God looked at the faded picture of Stengel in his hand and then back up at the man known to millions through the years as “The Old Perfessor.” “Wow, you really were young once.” […]

Dumb Move by Matt Harvey

Dumb Move by Matt Harvey

Yeah, I know, it’s his arm and he can do whatever he wants with it but Matt Harvey is making a big mistake. Harvey has decided to try to rehab his injured pitching elbow for a month or two instead of having Tommy John surgery. The medical term for Harvey’s injury is  a “partially torn […]

Matt Harvey Is Done – Way to Go Mets

Let’s see. Johan Santana comes to the Mets as one of baseballs’ top pitchers and voila! He leaves with an arm that might as well be sawed off and used as a fungo bat. Now it’s Matt Harvey’s turn. The Mets say Harvey, their ace and best young pitcher since Doc Gooden in the mid 80’s […]

Jonathon Niese Is Too Ugly

Jonathon Niese Is Too Ugly

Being a radio sportscaster, I’ve watched thousands of games and interviewed hundreds of pro athletes. And as of this moment I’d have to say Mets pitcher Jonathon Niese is the ugliest guy I’ve seen in MLB in years. Maybe just too ugly to play. When I hear others broadcast sports I automatically judge them. It’s just natural. And […]

Not Such A Good Friday For Johan Santana

Not Such A Good Friday For Johan Santana

There are Good Friday’s and there are bad ones. The one today was neither. It was brutal for Mets ace Johan Santana. He found out he reinjured his throwing shoulder and has to decide if he wants to undergo surgery that will keep him out the entire season. Medically speaking Santana most likely reinjured the anterior […]

2013 Mets = 1962 Mets

2013 Mets = 1962 Mets

That’s right. I’ve done the math. This year’s Mets team will be as bad, or maybe worse than the infamous 1962 Mets. Marvelous Marv Throneberry, Choo Choo Coleman, Bob G. Miller and Bob L. Miller. The sad sack boneheads who lost a major league record 120 games. Imagine finishing 18 games behind the Cubs who won […]

Does Deron Williams Have Mets Syndrome?

Does Deron Williams Have Mets Syndrome?

You won’t find Mets Syndrome in any medical dictionary – or any dictionary for that matter because I made it up. But Mets fans know what I’m talking about. Jason Bay had a severe case.  His stats with the Red Sox in 2009:  .293 batting average, 36 home runs and 119 rbi’s. His work the following year […]

Mets Gamble Goes Snake Eyes

Mets Gamble Goes Snake Eyes

Actually, it’s not that bad of an idea – the Mets building a casino next to Citi Field. According to the NY Post, Sterling Equities, the real estate company operated by Mets owner Fred Wilpon and family, pitched a casino idea in September 2011 and offered the City $100 million to acquire 62 acres for the site. The […]

Who Are These Mets Bums?

Who Are These Mets Bums?

I had to laugh when I saw Mets GM Sandy Alderson’s quote “The reason we haven’t spent the money is not because of Fred Wilpon. It’s because of me.” Alderson obviously took the bullet for his boss Fred Wilpon at a season-ticket holders event at Citifield earlier this week. Sure Sandy, the man who hired you and throws nickles around […]

R.A. Dickey Strikes It Rich

R.A. Dickey Strikes It Rich

  How often are Cy Young winners traded right after they win the Cy Young?  It happened three times (David Cone, Pedro Martinez and Roger Clemens) and R.A. Dickey being dealt to the Toronto Blue Jays makes it four. Dickey got what he wanted – a two-year, $25 million extension. He deserved it, but Mets owners, […]
