A Farewell to Dickey

via thebiglead.fantasysportsven.netdna-cdn.com I try to go to multiple Mets games every season, about once a month. For multiple reasons, by June of 2008 I hadn't yet been. I had wanted to go...

Selected Readings from the Liturgy and Scripture of the Church of Dickey

via img.gawkerassets.com Given the uncertainty surrounding R.A. Dickey and his continued tenure with the Mets I was feeling in need of some inspiration. It occurred to me that several of us have...

Bobby Parnell and the Anxiety of Watching Closers

via cdn3.sbnation.com Now, before you all get turned off by another article about closers, let me explain what this piece is meant to be. I was inspired to write because many people in game...

R.A. Dickey: A somewhat Intimate Portrait

A brief listing of likes and dislikes that I found interesting. I love that he digs Murakami.

Wilpons sued for $300 Million+ due to Madoff Scheme

11

More details of the lawsuit filed by Irving Picard, trustee for the victims of Madoff's Ponzi scheme. $300 million in false profits, plus millions more because they "knew or should have known Madoff was operating a fraud." No wonder they wanted to sell off a minority stake in the team

Seats at New Meadowlands

Just saw that there are some really cheap upper endzone seats available for some games this season. Does anyone have any idea what the view is like from up there before I buy them?

The Case for Dillon Gee

via blog.nj.com Let's be honest here. None of the various options bounced back and forth for SP trading are all that appetizing, with the exception of Dan Haren. Oswalt will cost too much,...

R.A. Dickey throws One-Hitter for the Bisons

18

He gave up a hit to the first man he faced and then set down 27 in a row. I am throughly impressed

Some Thoughts on the Mets At-bat/Entrance Music

Given all the dourness that accompanies many discussions of the Mets so far this season, I thought it might be nice to divert ourselves with something fun and entertaining (at least to me). I’ve...

On Jenrry Mejia

Finally watched him pitch today. With the caveat that this is only ST and I still want him to start the season in the minors, Goddamn! The movement on his fastball is sick, and while he only threw...

For Next Season, a Plea for Dave Duncan

via cache.daylife.com So, of the myriad difficulties facing the Mets this offseason, one of the most perplexing is the question of the starting rotation. Right now we have one known quantity in...

As if you needed more analysis of Omar's failings

7

Looked at it in this light, that whole vote of a cofidence thing looks even more bizarre

SOCKS! is apparently here to stay

I would hope that after everything that has gone wrong, Jerry and Omar would be smart enough to keep Caesar Socks around , but I might be giving them to much credit.

Fatcessa has a brief moment of semi-sarcastic compassion

1

In keeping with Eric's post earlier today, you know things are bad when even Fatcessa runs out of bad things to say about the Mets, even if only for 30 minutes

Carlos Beltran is approaching the next step of his rehab

12

Anyone else think this is a bad idea? And what does Jerry mean about a more "regimented" approach to Wags?

Bobby Parnell as a starter?

So, small sample size notwithstanding, I really loved his line tonight. Not only that, his breaking pitches were working very well for him to night, particularly his slider which was downright...

What do we think of Livan?

Forgive me if it seems I am overly optimistic, but before yesterday I was ready to pronounce him done and hope that the Mets bring up Figueroa. Now I'm not so sure. Certainly one game isn't enough...

Money and the Wilpons

How much of a factor is the new stadium and the revenues thereof going to be for the rest of the season? The bonds which paid for Citifield need to be repaid by the Mets, presumably through...
