Found November 25, 2011 on The Eddie Kranepool Society:
PLAYERS: Casey Stengel
TEAMS: New York Mets
Remember this? Mex’s power nap! I don’t know if it’s the calm before the storm or a sign that the Mets will remain dormant in winter time news but there is absolutely  nothing baseball wise coming out a of Flushing. I can get pushing the new uni and all the pomp and circumstance for this season 50th Anniversary but for the love of Casey Stengel is there any baseball news of substance coming from the front office? Here’s what we’re stuck with today as “Mets news” Lenny Dykstra ****** up his life and now is in rehab and when he gets out he will be a new man and yada yada yada. You know what, Frank Cashen should be given more credit than he ever has for when you look back at the Mets of the 80’s for all their on field success there were a lot of them who couldn’t handle the fame, fortune and everything that goes with it (I thank you all-Freddie Mercury) . With all the celebrations of the ’86 Mets maybe we should reflect more on this bunch as failures, who if they had any kind of self-...

What Mets fans should be thankful for

As we sit down to feast on Thanksgiving, I thought today would be a great day to celebrate for what we, as Mets fans, should be thankful. Many a Met fan these days are of the despondent and cynical version and it’s hard to blame them as the Mets have continued to disappoint their fan base for the last few years. And now we continuously have to worry about if Jose Reyes will leave...

How will R.A. Dickey surprise us in 2012?

Generally speaking, the less said about the 2011 Mets pitching staff, the better. Despite enjoying good health among their starting pitchers, as well as playing in a pitcher’s park, they finished 13th in the National League in ERA. Yet Dan Warthen still has a job. But I’m not here to talk about the power of incriminating photos. Instead, let’s talk about R.A. Dickey....

2011 MMO Top 20 Mets Prospects – #9 Cesar Puello, OF

In July of 2007, exactly three months after his 16th birthday the Mets signed Cesar Puello, a toolsy, RH hitting outfielder from the Dominican Republic, to his first professional contract. Now 20-years-old, 6’2″ and about 220 lbs., with 1192 lifetime minor league AB’s under his belt, Puello seems poised and ready to bust out in 2012. That’s why he is our choice for the 2012...

Jury trial may await Mets owners

Rakoff agreed with trustee Irving Picard and turned down arguments by the ownership group headed by Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz, who claimed the case should be decided...

Martino: Mets Holiday Weekend Plans Don’t Include Any Signings

Yesterday afternoon, Andy Martino of the Daily News tweeted the New York Mets are not likely to generate any news on Thanksgiving or in the days that follow in regards to signing or trades, according to a team official: #bbpBox_139407952045023232 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_139407952045023232 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; }Heading into Thanksgiving weekend...

Mets still in exploratory stages of off-season

Michael Baron: In talking with fans both here and on Twitter, it seems a lot of people are anxious for the Mets to make some kind of moves, and for good reason. However, the new CBA just got signed, and the course the Mets take has a lot to do with where Jose Reyes decides to go, and Sandy has said that process will be slow. The winter meetings run from December 5 – 8 in Dallas...

Reviewing my 33-year-old grudge against Richie Hebner

It’s natural for fans to have favorite players and it follows that there will be athletes that do not invoke feelings of sympathy. I like to think that in the last decade or so that the people on the Mets that I detested all earned those feelings from me by their performances on the field. There was Rey Ordonez and his inability to hit. There was Guillermo Mota and the gas...

Obviously relating the Mets to Thanksgiving…

I highly recommend you checkout this article by Anthony DiComo of MLB.com called “Dickey aims to scale Kilimanjaro for cause.” Gotta love R.A. Dickey… Tweet
