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, […]

MMO Prospect Pulse: Wilmer Flores, IF

If you believed everything that you’ve heard, you might be under the impression that we have the next Miguel Cabrera in our system. I don’t mean to burst your bubble, but I’m not signing up for that just yet. Does that mean I don’t believe in Wilmer Flores? Quite the opposite actually – I just […]

BTF asks… Maybe you could clear something up for me. Can somebody please tell me what the heck we are doing about the outfield now that Bay is gone? Is Kirk Nieuwenhuis really the answer at center field? What can we expect from him? Is Den Dekker even in the team photo anymore? Sean replies… […]

Mets Opening Day Tickets Cost More Than Regular Games? Duh…

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. Another meaningless […]

He cites a high-ranking MLB executive, that “if the Mets don’t get this level return, they’re probably not going to trade him.” Wow, talk about too […]

Sandy Alderson And His Legacy Of Diminished Expectations

Who can forget where we were and what we were doing on December 16, 2004? (Ok, I admit it. I didn’t know the exact date either). It was a huge day for us fans. After finishing 25 GB and under .500 for the 3rd straight year, Omar Minaya made not only a bold move but […]

Giancarlo Stanton Writes His Ticket Out Of Miami, Met Fans Can Only Dream

In a post for MLB.com, Peter Gammons, Stanton fired away at team ownership, a move that will essentially hasten his exodus from South Beach. I’m certain that most of you already heard about Stanton’s first reaction to the trade when he took to Twitter and said, “Alright I’m ticked off. I do not like this at all. […]
