Why don’t the Mets make it official, and wave the White Flag once and for all; shut down both Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran. Start scouring the waiver wire for able bodied major leaguers to fill the void. Or, start the auditions, and see if the farm system is capable of producing a contributor, or […]

Ed Price of AOL FanHouse is reporting that the Mets and the Nationals have swapped second basemen (Hat tip to MLB Trade Rumors).

The Mets begin a seven game road trip starting tonight against the San Diego Padres.  Although any chance at going to the postseason is probably out of the question, if the team could pull it off – there is not better team to face than the San Diego Padres.  The Padres have scored the fewest […]
