By now you all know my stance on simply handing 20-year old Mejia a bullpen spot, especially when it means passing on one of Hisanori Takahashi, Kiko Calero, Nelson Figueroa or even Fernando Nieve who are all performing better than him.

The reason why I don’t get into the off-season that much or even Spring Training is because there’s so much more to what goes on behind the scenes than we ever know. I like to just pay attention, whatever happens, happens and I get ready for Opening Day and good times. However, this Mike Jacobs things […]

The New York Mets are really hoping to surprise some people this season after the dismal, injury-riddled 2009, but a portion of that expectation is resting on the rehab from surgery on the right knee of Carlos Beltran. According to the New York Daily News, Beltran is likely going to be back in the lineup before early May. […]

 Mike Pelfrey was at it again Wednesday, tantalizing Met teammates, management, fans and writers with his Grapefruit League performance against the Red Sox. ‘Big Pelf’ has seemingly been on the precipice of greatness since being drafted by the Mets in the 1st round, 9th overall, in 2005.
