Let’s See A Little More Of Matt Harvey, Before We “Omar Minaya” Him

I caught a Mailbag Post on MetsBlog entitled: Can the Mets “Matt Moore” Matt Harvey? Huh?

Is Chone Figgins A Good Fit For The Mets?

I was reading MetsBlog’s take by Matt Cerrone on why he feels the Mets should jump on the recently released Chone Figgins. Figgins was pretty terrible last season.

From Left Field: I’m Thankful For The Mets

It’s easy to be a Yankee fan. Every year they’re fighting for a World Series crown. If they don’t make it, they go out and spend millions of dollars to bring in players who will help the franchise achieve its goal of a championship. And if it doesn’t work that year, they’ll repeat the process […]
