Owners Are Footing The Bill On Bay, While The Team Pays The Price

Owners Are Footing The Bill On Bay, While The Team Pays The Price

In Doug’s Dugout today, we simply vent (mostly about Jason Bay and management). Something is rotten in Denmark, my fellow furry Mets fans. Suddenly, since the second half bell rang, the Mets hierarchy (i.e. Sandy Alderson) has demoted multiple (young) Mets outfielders with the regularity of a Jason Bay strikeout. What in the heck is […]

Alderson On Trade Deadline, Keeping Hairston, Being Competitive

At 4:00 PM today the trade deadline came to and end with nary a move from the New York Mets. As the song says not a creature was stirring not even a mouse…. We weren’t buyers, nor were we sellers…. We were what you’d call not-so-innocent bystanders. Life goes on. In a conference call at […]

First, the Phillies traded Victorino to the Dodgers for starting pitching prospect […]

Who’s Ready For Some More Matt Harvey!

I really loved this post by Bob Klapisch of The Record this morning on Mets rookie pitching phenom Matt Harvey. Harvey isn’t just some overhyped prospect being pimped by desperate ownership. To the contrary: Rival executives believe the 23-year-old right-hander is the most gifted rookie pitcher the Mets have produced since Doc Gooden. Granted, that’s […]

With Torreabla And Shoppach Available, Should Mets Take A Flier?

Kelly Shoppach would be a great addition to the Mets as he bats right handed with some power, which is something we could really use from our backstops. His best season came with Cleveland where he hit 21 home runs back in 2008. After he left the Indians he struggled for a few seasons with […]

Mets finally win their second straight game in July. Scott Hairston launches two, and Jason Bay touches the plate three times in a late night offensive battle against the Giants. Mets end up on top, 8-7 in ten innings. Despite what the scoreboard says, Jeremy Hefner did well tonight. He just got pulled a couple […]

One Player The Mets Should Look At

The Mets have been reeling since the all-star break and their 2012 chances are as bleak as ever. The trade deadline is just 24 hours away and as expected, the Mets have been fairly silent. Nobody expects the team to make a huge move, which is warranted due to the team’s poor play in the […]

Giving Baxter The Ovation He Deserves

As the sun begins to set on what appeared to be a magical season, we cannot forget all of the good that came out of the improbable first half. On June 1, 2012, Johan Santana did what many thought would never happen. He threw the first ever Mets no-hitter, and gave many fans a “where […]
