Charlie Williams Traded To Giants

I was in tenth grade and Charlie Williams was being traded for a legend, tough to be an answer to a trivia question for the rest of your life.  As we all sit and wait for the Mets Brain Trust to make a decision that may or may not make their lives as baseball genius’ […]

An article by posted on November 21, 2010 0 Comments

I had gotten my season ticket renewal notice in the mail two weeks ago.  Last week, John, my personal representative, emailed me this follow up. I wanted to check in with you and see if you had any questions regarding your 2011 New York Mets Season ticket invoice that you should have received last week. […]

Sabermetric/Mets Manager Plug and Play

An article by posted on November 20, 2010 0 Comments

I admit that the whole process associated with picking the new manager of the Mets is like root canal for me, situational substitution for a guy who has been in the baseball business for over thirty years should come as second nature, and there should be very little difference between Backman, Melvin and Collins.  My […]

Mets Should Be Players In Justin Upton Sweepstakes

An article by posted on November 18, 2010 0 Comments

A couple of days ago I pondered the wisdom of the Mets pursuing Justin Upton after coming across the post below from Bob Nightengale. Well what first seemed like just a rumor or speculation, has now grown into a MLB-wide hysteria as there’s no shortage of offers being tossed around complete with quotes from several […]

Mets Managerial Search Isn’t A Fair Race.

An article by posted on November 17, 2010 0 Comments

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported today that the managerial “search” is more of a formality: I guess Hale, in particular, has a chance to throw a Hail Mary and get the job. But this is as close to a rigged event as possible with Collins as the favorite and Melvin as a […]

Dan Uggla Trade Gives One Pause On Trading Reyes Or Beltran

An article by posted on November 17, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday, I was quite surprised by the trade that sent Dan Uggla to the Braves for utility infielder Omar Infante and reliever Mike Dunn. The fact that he was traded isn’t what surprised me. We all knew the writing was on the wall once Uggla turned down a four-year deal worth $48 million dollars from the […]

An article by posted on November 16, 2010 0 Comments

Today Ken Rosenthal reported that the Brewers would listen to offers regarding several players, one of those players is Rickie Weeks.  Weeks has one year left on his contract.  In 2010 Rickie Weeks will be making $2.75 million dollars.  The Mets we know need someone at second base as it’s highly likely that Castillo won’t […]

Alderson Should Bring Hudson To The Mets

As Sandy Alderson continues to hire his buddies and show no urgency in hiring a manager, he needs to consider bringing Orlando Hudson to the New York Mets. Hopefully Alderson will finally cut loose the dead weight  that is Luis Castillo.  The Mets should have signed Hudson in 2009, but instead they let him go to the […]

Alderson’s Big Test Will Be In Who He Hires As Manager

An article by posted on November 2, 2010 0 Comments

While everyone celebrates that Sandy Alderson is the new GM and that he said all the right things the Mets still need a manager.  Unfortunately for us it looks like the Mets are going to be cheap with who they hire.  Also Alderson doesn’t like spending money so that means Bobby Valentine won’t be the […]
