According to the Daily News, Dykstra was tossed in jail Monday after being charged with stealing three cars and possessing drugs. He was charged with 25 criminal counts, and […]

Lucas Duda Is Raking In Buffalo, Why Not Flushing?

A few minutes ago, I caught a tweet from the Buffalo Bisons that read: Lucas Duda has vaulted his average 46 pts the past 10 games. It sounded pretty impressive so I thought I’d investigate further. The hulking 6-4 outfielder is mashing the ball for the Bisons and in just 115 at-bats, Duda has slugged […]

So far this season, we’ve seen Sandy Alderson successfully navigate his way with very little cash on hand to do the things he probably would have wanted and preferred. He rolled the dice on a few players and lost some and won some, but to his credit, the Mets are still relevant. Terry Collins has […]
