Is Terry Collins The Best Choice To Lead The Mets Going Forward?

I like Terry Collins. He’s feisty. He competes. He never cries over what he doesn’t have. He has high expectations for those under his command. Collins has been surprisingly adept at handling the New York media during some very difficult seasons, and, for the most part, seems to have maintained his player’s respect. In fact, the Terry Collins […]

The Mets could pursue a free agent shortstop this offseason, according to Andy Martino of New York Daily News. Martino, who has spent the last three days schmoozing with the Mets and covering for Kevin Burkhardt, says the upcoming Winter could be the the most important for the Mets in several years. In talking with a Mets […]

Matsuzaka Spins Gem, Young’s Late RBI Gives Mets Unlikely 2-1 Win

Between the Mets and the Jets today, nothing makes sense — and I’m happier than a kid in a candy store. The New York Mets pulled off an unlikely 2-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians through the strength of Daisuke Matsuzaka, Justin Turner, and Eric Young. …Yeah, what? Matsuzaka was masterful early, as he didn’t […]

This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty: A Soundtrack For Last Night’s Mets Loss Edition

Last nights game between the Mets and the Cleveland  Indians was stomach churning bad. That first inning pitched by Jon Niese made me wish that Shaun Marcum was still with the team (well not really). All I know is that after viewing last night’s game, I have finally come to terms with the fact that […]

Mets Can’t Climb Out of Early Hole, Lose Again in Cleveland 9-4

The Mets (63-77) lost to the Indians (76-65) by a score of 9-4 on Saturday Night at Jacobs Field (I won’t call anything about that Cleveland team “Progressive” until they change their logo.) Jon Niese took the ball for the Mets and was dreadful early, giving up six runs — five were earned, and the […]
