K-Rod – High-profile signing, but perhaps lacking substance … ?

December 29, 2008

Guest blogger Andrew Kennis writes: This year’s hot stove period has produced little substance in terms of the Mets’ biggest signing. The Mets would have been better off opting for a closer who has more substance than style. Indeed, there has been a significant amount of criticism of K-Rod, and with good reason: Without being […]

December Ramblings

December 16, 2008

It’s about that time for some random thoughts… First up, it’s been a snowy day in Chicago and at 2pm when I headed to work, the three main streets I drive on, all main roadways by the way, had not been touched by plows. Just wonderful. Keep on buying those SUV’s city of Chicago and […]

November Ramblings

November 17, 2008

Here we are, half way through the month of November and the baseball hot stove is heating up. Yay. Great. Woo-hoo. Seriously, tell me when deals are done. I’m not a fan of the rumors, the daily reports and so on. I know the Mets need pitching help and I hope they are smart about […]

It Is What It Is

September 29, 2008

The season is over. What is there to say that hasn’t already been said? It sucks for sure. But I suppose being in the hunt was better than not being in it all like the Nats, Braves and Marlins. Right? I flew into New York Sunday morning for a friends wedding. Staying with my mom […]

August 13, 2008

Long time no post…   Anyway, I’m just starting week two of my three weeks in NYC for work. Some non-work highlights included seeing Eddie Vedder in concert at the United Palace Theater, a Mets game at Shea – most likely my last, and seeing a whole bunch of friends and old co-workers.   So, in no particular […]

Around the Majors

July 14, 2008

Ok, well not exactly, but this is my mid-season post about all things Julie: Let’s start with the Mets. They are on a nine-game winning streak. I don’t really care if it’s the change in the clubhouse or whatever that caused this upswing, I’m just glad it’s finally happening – on all levels. The young […]

Meet Mookie

June 29, 2008

He’s the Rubinstein family dog. And after about 10 years we finally got him some Mets gear. It was a bit small so we had to custom tailor it a little.

Billy Wagner, Voice of Reason?

June 18, 2008

Now that a day or so has passed on the firing of Willie Randolph and the extra media scrutiny of how it went down, I’m glad to see a few players comment on the situation. The best quote comes from Billy Wagner: “As a team, we hadn’t lived up to expectations,” said Wagner , whose […]
