Eric Young Jr. Has Quickly Become A Fan Favorite

In less than two months Eric Young Jr. has made himself a favorite among Mets fans. He plays with a dynamic of speed and hustle that this team has sorely missed and it has been fun to watch. Coming into the season, the outfield was the biggest question mark defensively and no one knew who […]

One Of The Strangest Years A Professional Athlete Can Have

A couple mornings ago I received a slew of text messages in rapid succession. They were all about the tweet released by FOX’s Ken Rosenthal and Jordany Valdespin’s 50-game suspension. At first, I felt bad. My dark horse in 2013 added a new chapter entitled “PEDs” into the comedic novella he’s called a career. The […]

The 1975 Royals finished in second place, but […]

Trade Ideas: Marlon Byrd for Joe Nathan

Ah, the trading deadline; my favorite time of year. It’s the midseason plot point where words like “blockbuster” are thrown around like clothes in a dryer and can change the fate of any team.

Mets Need More Pitching More Than They Need Marlon Byrd

There’s an old adage in baseball: you can never have enough good pitching. There’s another adage in life: you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.

Mets Waste Another Harvey Gem In 2-1 Loss To Nats

What a difference a few hours makes. Matt Harvey toed the rubber and allowed no earned runs in eight innings tonight, but as we’ve come to expect, the run support was not there and the Mets dropped a heartbreaker 2-1. The game was quiet for three innings, but Josh Satin got it going in the top of […]
