Then, in the offseason, for reasons few fans could understand, the Mets traded Staub to Detroit for veteran lefthanded pitcher Mickey Lolich. Actually, the trade was Staub and AAA pitcher Bill Laxton […]

Braves Pummel Hefner And Mets In 11-3 Bashing

The Mets (65-74) lost to the Braves (80-60) by the score of 11-3 on Saturday evening at Citi Field. Apparently, Kris Medlen is not beatable. (How the hell do you win 19 straight games under one pitcher?). He did, however, lose his no-ER run streak against the Mets. I guess that is a moral victory. But […]

As Good As David Wright Is, He’s Not Chipper Jones

I am a David Wright fan.  I’ve been an ardent supporter of the Mets’ third baseman since his first call-up to the big leagues in 2004.  I’ve seen him produce some of the greatest offensive seasons in franchise history and I’ve seen him make outstanding defensive plays.  I’ve also seen him represent the Mets at […]

Can The Mets Be Next Year’s Orioles?

The Mets are giving us other things to think about lately, such as the New York Giants’ secondary and an inability to put together a running game. Also a chance to lament about another September of non-meaningful games for the Mets. The Mets are mired in fourth place, thinking about how a hot run could […]
