Found August 23, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
Mike Francesa was at it again today and went completely postal on the Mets today…. He lambasted them like I’ve never heard before…. “I would be afraid to show my face in public if I owned this team!” “Murphy and Thole are getting beat on 80 mph fastballs, you gotta be kidding me!” The Mets are 12-30 in their last 42 games. They are a bigger embarrassment than they were under Jerry Manuel.” “The Mets are trying to make you believe that Seaver and Koosman are around the corner, THEY’RE NOT!” “The Meats have lost 14 of their last 16 home games, they are AWFUL!!!” “If I were the manager I’d jump off the roof… Terry Collins has become accepting of this garbage.” “The eight people that were in attendance should get their money back.” The sad part is that Francesa is right… Thanks to On The Black and Kerel Cooper for the link.

Mike Piazza Bobblehead Day, Mets Murdered Row Lineup: Mets Lineup V. Astros - August 25, 2012

The Mets haven't scored more than two runs in seven straight games, and it doesn't look like that will be the case today when RA Dickey and the Mets take on the lowly Astros. Today will also be Mike Piazza Bobblehead Day at GHMP, and fans attending today's contest will receive the bobblehead of the beloved Mets catcher. The entire metsfan73 household will be attending...

The Mike Francesa Mets Rant

Yesterday afternoon, following the Mets 1-0 to the Rockies, Mike Francesa had an abbreviated version of his “Mike’s On” show on WFAN 660-AM in New York. What followed may have been one of the greatest rants in the history of Sports Radio. One that will go down in history considering the host and station that aired it. Did I agree with most of it, yeah I would say so. But comparing...

The David Wright Dilemma

Many Mets fans are hoping and expecting that David Wright will be a member of the New York Mets, after 2013…but don’t count on it. David Wright is going to be faced with a very big decision within the next year. David has gone on the record stating that winning will be a big factor when he ultimately makes his decision. It sounds like he wants to remain a Met, but wants to see...

Prime Nine: New York Mets

Bernie Madoff took the Mets mojo and it might be years before they get it back. Sandy Alderson is certainly a good executive, but it will be tough for even him to get this thing turned around. He certainly kept them in the hunt this season for a few months, but the lack of talent kept them from remaining in the hunt. He has hinted that changes were coming next season...

Enough Already, It’s Time To See The Kids

The best thing about summer is that there is a baseball game on virtually everyday. When life gets you down or you feel that you need an escape, you can just turn on the television and immerse yourself in a ballgame. As a baseball fan I usually can enjoy each game as a single entity and forget about where we are in the standings. Lately instead of being able to enjoy a game I find...

Astros and Mets, Kindred Spirits?

They were born the same year, 1962, as expansion teams, and in the Houston Astros’ final National League appearance against the Mets in New York, both teams are playing like expansion teams. Although linked by their entry, the Mets and Astros never developed an substantive rivalry in these 50 years. Playing in different divisions dulled the potential of a rivalry.  Both had long...

McHugh impressive in debut, but Mets lose 5th straight

NEW YORK -- Collin McHugh couldn't get enough help from his offense, and the New York Mets bullpen didn't get the assistance it needed from its defense. So, for the second straight game, a Mets rookie starter dominated the Colorado Rockies, only to have the Rockies push the winning run across against the bullpen. This time, McHugh made an impressive first impression in...
