In a recent interview, Billy Wagner said that he thought the Mets were, at best, a third place team. With the Winter Meetings here and gone, and only the loss of Lastings Milledge to report, he may be right. The thing I don’t quite understand about the Milledge trade is why we couldn’t package him along with a couple other prospects, send him to Oakland, and get Dan Haren or Joe Blanton. Billy Beane may […]
In a stunning development Wednesday, a blockbuster deal involving the Mets, the Twins, and the Athletics was proposed. The deal would send Jose Reyes to the Athletics and Johan Santana would be a Met. Like most of Mets Nation, I would love to have Johan Santana, but we need to keep Jose Reyes for these three reasons: 1.) Jose Reyes is a proven star. This deal would most definitely go down as arguably the worst […]
When I first heard that the Mets had traded Lastings Milledge to the Nationals for Brian Schneider and Ryan Church, I screamed. I screamed not because we traded away Milledge, but because we traded away Milledge and didn’t get any pitching out of the deal. That and he went to the Nationals. If this trade is a total bust, Blastings Thrilledge will come back to haunt us for many years to come. At least if he went […]
On Thursday, Omar Minaya addressed the Jose Reyes rumors by saying, "Jose Reyes is one of our core players. I don’t see us trading Jose Reyes for one of those guys being mentioned. It just doesn’t make sense for us." Minaya went on to say that the Mets are very happy with Jose Reyes. Minaya declined to comment on Johan Santana. Trading Reyes would diminish the Mets lineup and leave our team with a huge […]
The Yankees and the Twins have begun talks about a trade that could send Johan Santana to the Bronx. The Yankees would have to give up one of their "Big Three" pitchers-Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy, or Philip Hughes. Other teams, including the Mets, have also expressed interest in Santana. The New York Post’s Mark Hale reports that the Mets have an interest in Santana, even if the Wilpons haven’t openly expressed it. The deal would […]
On Thanksgiving Day, Wallace Matthews basically wrote an article just for the sake of bashing the Mets. He could have probably gotten away with that since Newsday is based in New York. Outside of the state of New York, I assure you, Wallace Matthews would be without a job. There’s a fine line in journalism that should never be crossed. Ever. The Miami Dolphins are 0-10 (soon to be 0-11), but not one Florida newspaper has […]
In the eyes of Mets fans aplenty, Paul Lo Duca and Guillermo Mota were two different people. As the Rolling Stones once said, "You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might just find that you get what you need." Paul Lo Duca couldn’t wait to re-sign with the Mets. New York is his home, a true blue Brooklyn boy. However, Omar Minaya and the front office decided on September […]
