While the Mets have reported interest in Johan Santana, Freddy Garcia, and others out there, this begs the question; why […]

Zack Wheeler Could Join Team By The All-Star Break

Today, Sandy Alderson did a live chat on Mets.com taking questions from fans through Twitter. I decided to give it a shot, so I asked Sandy if it was possible that Zack Wheeler could be called up to the team come the All-Star break?  Much to my surprise, he answered, and as you’ll see in […]

If Healthy, Carl Pavano Wouldn’t Be A Bad Pickup

With spring training almost a month away, the Mets are running out of time to fill voids left in the outfield, bullpen and starting rotation.

Wright’s Deal Looks Great For Both Sides…

I am very happy that David Wright will be a New York Met for the rest of his playing days. For a while I was quite skeptical that a deal would materialize, considering all the inaccuracies and inconsistencies that were being reported by sources. But the two sides worked diligently through the night until the wee hours of […]

Thanks to The Knuckleball, R.A Dickey Is On Top of The Baseball World

Luckily, he has done all that and more for the Amazin’s. Not only has Nieuwenhuis provided the Mets with some key hits offensively, […]

If Francisco Is Removed As Closer, Parnell and Rauch Could Be Likely Candidates

After the Mets lost another frustrating game against the Marlins today, Terry Collins spoke about the possibility of removing Frank Francisco from the closer role. “We’ll address it. I have eight options.  But, I’m not going to address that right now, when emotions are running high.” Before I get into the whole Frank Francisco situation, […]
