I know some Mets fans have this obsession with Jesus Feliciano, Chris Carter, and Mike Hessman, but I don't really understand why.  They aren't young home grown players, nor are they major league caliber talent.  Maybe fans would rather see these guys than Ollie and Castillo, which I can sort of understand, but fans have to understand that these guys SUCK! and I am tired watching Jerry continue to trot them out there in big situations. That me preface the rest of my post by saying that I respect the effort these guys put out (especially Carter), but in the end they are career minor leaguers who don't belong in the majors at all.  The issue with these three bench players is more of a problem with organizational depth, that has led to a lack of depth on the bench at the major league level for the Mets.  Even at the beginning of the year when they had three washed up MLB veterans in Matthews Jr., Jacobs, and Catalanatto, the Mets were very weak on the bench and its only got...

Slip Sliding Away: The Mets Season Barely Matters Anymore

There are so many ups, downs and in-betweens over the course of a 162 game season that it seems foolish to objectively point to a particular moment in time as the time when everything ceased to matter.Acknowledging that risk, we propose that the Mets experienced just such a moment in the bottom of the fifth inning in Atlanta on Wednesday night.The inning started with a throwing error...

YOU’RE ONLY AS HOT AS THE NEXT DAY’S STARTING PITCHER

So  much for the big boost that Frenchy’s home run was supposed to bring to the Mets, that was another smoke screen to hide the suck that is Jeff Francoeur. At least he’s well liked by his teammates. I’ve worked with guys like Frenchy, they are so personable and charismatic that you love being around them but when it comes to getting the actual work done they’re utter failures...
