Could Liriano Be A Solution?

A few months back when the Mets looked like they could compete this season, I began to think of where they could address the inevitable problems in the rotation. Aside from the fantasy of making a move for a pitcher like Cole Hamels, I began to think that the Twins Francisco Liriano would make sense […]

Bullpen Blows Another Late Lead As Braves Stun Mets 8-7

The Mets drop a close game to the Braves, 8-7. Summary I hate when we lose games like this. It always feels so tough to stomach. Time to get right into it. RA Dickey started this one, his first start after being snubbed for the AS game start he deserved, and looked a little rusty. […]

Alderson Still Waiting For Bay To Perform Like 22nd Highest Paid Player In Game

In Doug’s Dugout today, we broach the second half, Tony LaRussa, and other observations. As the Mets embark on the second half sprint towards the post-season (who would’ve predicted that?) the benchmark is Ten. That is, ten games above .500. If the team can improve their 6 games above .500 mark, and make another strong […]

R.A. Dickey: No Respect…No Respect At All

That phrase was made famous by comedian Rodney Dangerfield.  These days, it could be used in reference to R.A.
