The Mets’ Mistake with Josh Satin

Ike Davis or Lucas Duda. Lucas Duda or Ike Davis. It took until mid-April for Sandy Alderson to finally make a decision that he was going with Lucas Duda at first base, and therefore, trading away Ike Davis.

3 Up and 3 Down: Mets Get Hooked In Miami

3 Up & 3 Down: Rocky Mountain High

If I changed my name to “Captain Obvious” I would have said that the Mets were hoping to start the month of May the way they ended April.  With a rainout.  I kid I kid.  Things were certainly going right before the calender changed as the Mets took two out of three from the Marlins, […]

MMO Game Recap: Rockies 11, Mets 10

When the Mets play the Rockies, fans might as well expect torture. As if you can prepare for such a thing. The Mets blew a 6-0 lead, then came from behind to take a 10-9 lead in the 9th, before losing on a pinch hit walk-off home run. A gut wrenching loss for the Mets […]
