Mets Won’t  Wait For Reyes, Beltran Urges Giants To Sign Him

A quote from ESPN’s Jason Stark in this week’s Rumblings & Grumblings: The buzz coming out of Flushing is that the Mets have very little interest in waiting around this winter for Jose Reyes to decide whether to stay or bolt. One source who’s tight with the Mets brass tells Rumblings they’re “either going to be in […]

Should The Mets Go After Pudge Rodriguez This Offseason?

Let this be one of the first “Should The Mets Do This” articles of the soon-to-be-offseason: Should the Mets target future hall-of-fame backstop Ivan Rodriguez during this winter? I say 100% yes, they should. The 39-year old Puerto Rican native would serve as an exceptional backup to Josh Thole. Not only providing gold-glove defense and […]

Why Do So Many Mets Fans Hate David Wright?

An article by posted on September 16, 2011 0 Comments

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I got an email from one of our readers yesterday that basically asked me  a few questions about Bay, Tejada and a couple of other players, but what really struck me was this: Why do so many fans hate David Wright? Everybody seems to pin […]

David Wright and the C.

An article by posted on September 16, 2011 0 Comments

Recently, there has been an awful lot of discussion between Mets fans about the dirty little C word. No, not that one. (Captain, my goodness what were you thinking?) Of course, the word is “clutch.” I’ve gone on record as saying I don’t really care about who is clutch and who is not. I think […]

Just Another Fed-Up, Tired Met Fan

An article by posted on September 16, 2011 0 Comments

It seems every year as of late the Mets find themselves embroiled in some kind of controversy, either of their own design or through some vast cosmic anti-Met conspiracy that has prodded this little multi-million dollar team that could. I’m going to try to avoid blaming the Mets troubles on anything ethereal since to do […]

Home Sweet Home? Mets Have Second Most Home Losses In MLB

Blame it on Citi Field… Blame it on the bullpen… Blame it on the starting pitching… Blame it on the offense… Whatever you want to blame it on, the Mets won-loss record at home this season has been horrid. At 31-44 in Citi Field, only the Houston Astros at 28-46 have lost more games in […]

You Ever Pitch, Kid?

I chuckled when I read this little blurb in the Daily News today: Having burned six relievers Thursday, Collins was not going to waste another. In the middle of a disastrous ninth inning, he turned to rookie outfielder Mike Baxter. “You ever pitch, kid?” the manager asked? The Queens product told the skipper, “Not since I […]

Could He Do It?

At this point, it’s down to Jose Reyes and Ryan Braun for the National League batting title.  In the beginning of the season it looked like Reyes was a shoe-in for MVP, however,  with the combination of injuries and the Mets plummeting in the standings, that chance really went away.  As of now here are […]

Terry Collins Is Mad As Hell And He’s Not Gonna Take It Anymore

Terry Collins Is Mad As Hell And He’s Not Gonna Take It Anymore

Poor Terry Collins. He seems like a manager who’s become totally fed up with how his team has performed as the season winds down. Before the game he had this to say: “I want to see some fighting in what’s left, I want to see some, we use the term loosely but I want to […]
