Meet The Newest Met, Andres Torres

Here’s a pretty cool video of the player who will be patrolling centerfield for the Mets in 2012, Andres Torres. I believe fans are going to love this guy.

Despite […]

Mets Will Need Fast Start In 2012 Or It Will Be A Long Summer

Jose Reyes has left for Miami, and we wish him nothing but success. It’s time now to prepare for life without Reyes and look ahead to the 2012 season.

An article by posted on December 9, 2011 0 Comments

As pointed out by Mike Salfino of SNY Why Guys, there’s more to the additions of relievers Jon Rauch, Frank Francisco and Ramon Ramirez than just the obvious which was to bolster a depleted bullpen.

The Mets actually drafted an 18-year-old high school athlete with their […]

Even The Believers Stop Believing At Some Point

Before I start, I have to admit to my bias. I have lost a lot of faith in the direction of the franchise. It is well defined at this point and it is not the way I would handle things. There was a glimmer of hope in all of us that really felt in the […]
