What A Classy Move By The Texas Rangers

While we were all fixating on the Mets draft selections for most of this week (rightfully so), something odd happened during the draft that many of you may not have noticed. The Texas Rangers drafted University of Georgia outfielder Johnathan Taylor on Wednesday in the 33rd round of the First Year Player Draft. It’s not exactly something […]

Where Are All The Fans?

I’ve had to spend some down time at home this past week and I’ve watched a lot of baseball and I have a question or two and some comments. Where Have All The People Gone? Sure, some teams just don’t draw as much, but even now, there are empty seats at Yankee Stadium and even […]

An article by posted on June 9, 2011 0 Comments

It’s funny how the two players that we all figure will be traded by the end of the season—Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran—are carrying the New York Mets. After Reyes’ go-ahead triple Tuesday night, Beltran came through with a game-tying double off Kameron Loe in the eighth inning last night. However, it hasn’t just been […]

Okay I’m back from my 48-hour Post-MLB Draft Stress Disorder. Did you guys miss me? How about you Bayonne Met Fan, did you miss me? Well shockingly enough, the Mets did not end up with any of the players I figured they would select in the first round on Monday. I never expected them to reach so far down to […]

Jason Bay has been awful in his stay thus far with the Mets. I don’t even think in my worst dreams would I have thought that he would be this bad. When you start to think about trades, you immediately think that a guy like Jason Bay is not tradeable due to his hefty contract […]

These Mets Are A Resilient Bunch With No Quit In Them

Believe me when I say this, but I am not taking a drink of the Kool-Aid. I never expected the Mets to contend this season and don’t expect that to change. I still think over the next six weeks the Mets will attempt to shed payroll in the names of Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes and […]
