Matz down 3+ weeks, Wheeler Next man up!

Today we found out despite reassurances and supposedly the MRI coming back negative they are shutting down Steven Matz for 3 weeks. In and of itself this is a smart move, no reason to press and risk him long term, shut him down, make sure he’s 100% and then work him back. In reality this means Matz has to be effectively out probably 6-7 weeks at the least right? He’s gonna have to work back up to speed after a total shutdown.

Mets 2017: You Gotta Have Faith!

It took all the restraint I had not to make a Tebow joke with that title, I even went so far as to search for a good image to go with it, but in the end i decided I didn’t want my message to be taken as snarky sarcasm. I’m serious. Yeah I know I am one of the last people you’d expect to be talking about faith, but here we sit. As opening day fast approaches I find myself considering all the possible things that can go wrong, and there are many, and the more I think about this team and what the possible outcomes are the more and more excited I get.

Time To Blog

Being a basketball coach doesn’t allow me the time I would love to have to concentrate on other interests I have. However, with winter break here for me, I have some time to focus on New York sports.
Of course, as I sit down and relax, my the Football Giants decide to take a short cut to the golf course. Bored and with no football hopes this weekend, I looked under my Christmas tree and started to get Mets fever.

Upset? No Way Jose!

If you are a realist you saw this coming a mile away, no way was Jose Reyes coming back. However, in my opinion this is a good thing. The way the Mets are currently constructed adding Jose Reyes to mix isn’t the piece that is going to get them back to the World Series. With or without Jose this team is fighting for at best third place. Why should the Mets add another $20 million dollar contract to the mix and give this team less flexibility in the future when they may actually be a piece or two away from playoff contention.

Best Mets News In A Long Time

It’s not everyday the Mets make the right move or do the right thing but today is not that day. No the Mets didn’t sign a new ace or retain Jose Reyes but they are making changes to Citi Field. First off, not that it will help the team but they are making the fence blue. If the rumors are true and we are going to see less black in the uniform department and now the fence the Mets are actually listening.

All Or One?

With the 25th anniversary of the Mets last series victory coming and going, I once again ask the old the Mets/Yankees question. Would you rather win a ton of titles or have a few you can look at as very special?

Good Riddance

 It has been quite awhile since I needed to vent here on MetsPundit.com but as with 2007 and 2008, another debacle has me emotional on the last day of the season. The difference this season is that there wasn’t a collapse...

I was very saddened today to hear Doc Gooden was not only arrested for DWI, but more importantly hurt that it was for driving under the influence of a controlled substance. It is just heartbreaking to hear that Doc is back...
