Wright Decision: Where Should Mets Draw The Line On Years And Dollars

I like David Wright and want the Mets to sign him to an extension. However, the question is: For how long? The other day I wrote the Mets should get going and sign him and R.A. Dickey. What I should have said is they should put their best offer on the table, and if nothing else, […]

If I see one more post about this newly drummed up Opening Day ticket fiasco, I think I’ll scream. Nah, not really. But I do think it’s comical reading all these posts everywhere knocking the Mets because their Opening Day tickets cost more money than an ordinary April game against the Marlins. Is that concept really that […]

Memo To Mets: Stop Screwing Around And Sign Dickey And Wright

The press release came via email as it always does and my first reaction was: How insignificant is Brian Bixler? He means something to his family, but hit .193 with two homers and seven RBI last season for Colorado and Washington. Yup, that will have them breaking down the doors at Citi Field.
