The Great Divide: Where We Are Going and Where We Are

If there’s one thing I can say about Mets fans if I were to use Twitter as the barometer, you could slice the entire fan base down the middle and the divisions are quite clear. In the past 12 months, when anyone asked me to describe the state of the Mets fan base, my reply […]

Who Were the Biggest Winners and Losers for the Mets This Spring?

Who Will Have The Better Season, Cowgill or Valdespin?

     Clayton – Jordany Valdespin, I see Cowgill getting a hot start then hitting a wall. Valdespin however I could see being the best run producer in the outfield in 2013. Adam – Collin Cowgill because he’s a better defender and has better plate discipline/selection at the plate. Valdespin will hit for more power and […]

Rob Carson Likely Gets Final Bullpen Spot

Updated by Joe D. 3/26 A team source told Adam Rubin that veteran righthander LaTroy Hawkins has made the Opening Day roster. This comes as no surprise given manager Terry Collins‘ propensity to lean towards players with more experience as long as they are healthy. Hawkins, 40, has not allowed a run over five innings […]
